Ammos hotel is an attractively designed space (minimalistic, white washed, herbs, stone walls, pebbles) in a good location (above the sandy Magazia beach, close to the good taverna of Stefanos, and a short car ride from chora). The pool area is pretty and pleasand to sit in. The breakfast is also good with lots of freshly baked local pies and desserts (but srtangely lacking fresh fruit and juices).
However very few of the rooms are worth their price since most of them have basic view or no view at all. The rooms are also lacking basic amenities- basic to none shower products, no hair dryer, no warmer bed covers other than sheets, no mini bar). There is also no washing or ironing service. There is no provision for acces to people with special needs (no ramps anywhere, yet the place is full of steps, even inside the rooms). There is no parking, only a few spaces at the road that runs above the hotel. Last but not least, the service is basic and better suited to rental rooms but certainly not to a hotel - we did not see the people at the breakfast counter and the pool smile once during our stay and there was no pool service unless one actively seeked someone to order food and drinks or ask for towels. The place also did not accept credit cards gladly and they were really reluctant to give us a second room key since 'if they were lost, they would have to cut new in Athens'.
Once you know about the above, and be prepared, this is not a bad place to stay.
