I booked this hotel after friends had already paid for their rooms. I asked to be located close to my travel companions, and this was sorted quickly and easily by email.
By the time we travelled circumstances had changed. Once again, a quick email to Maria and all was sorted.
Being a rather cynical traveller, I thought our open-arms greeting on arrival was just that: For the arrival. However, I'm happy to report that the wonderful Greek hospitality extended for the duration of our stay and every day or time we popped into reception, the restaurant or the pool, we were made to feel so welcome and like one of Maria's extended family.
She has assembled a fantastic team to give travellers an exceptional stay: Sofia, Anna and Mema are credits to her hotel and made us so welcome. They went above and beyond what I have experienced from hotels in the past and I'd definitely return again.
The hotel is clean, chic, looks far more expensive than it actually is, and you have unspoilt scenery and the sea all around you.
When we travelled it was very quiet - just after Easter when all the kids had returned to school - but there was still enough to do provided you hired a car. Again, the hotel organised this for us (a local company) and it worked out cheaper than sorting out before flying there.
I'd definitely recommend a trip to this lovely hotel - and meet the fabulous staff.
