We arrived to Amorgos by ferry at 3am and a taxi had been arranged to pick us up, and was there waiting. The owner, Theo, even woke up to greet us when we arrived at the hotel in Potamos 40 minutes later.
Theo was a great host. Very approachable, very knowledgeable, and very helpful - even after nights of interrupted sleep to greet guests. He was flexible with payment and offered to drive us to town at the bottom of the hill once or twice (before or after we rented a car). His wife Pooki (sp?) was also very friendly and helpful.
Waking up in the morning was stunning. The views from this property are to die for, not to mention the gorgeous rustic feel of the property itself - the pictures that you see do not exaggerate a bit.
The family taverna in town, run by Theo's brother (and often Theo in the kitchen, and his wife's Thai nights on Fridays) was great - we ate there twice and thoroughly enjoyed dinner and service - very local traditional tasty food. And hotel guests get 10% off - not that it's necessary as it looked to be the best place in the area.
In exploring the rest of the island, we did not come across any other place that looked nearly as nice. I honestly think this is the best place to stay in all of Amorgos, and for that the prices are extremely reasonable. Don't miss the chance to stay here!
