I had picked this hotel online on the basis of the pic of the pool - it looked gorgeous and we weren't disappointed! On being collected from our boat on arrival to leaving on our day of departure the owners went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. Our boat had been cancelled on our return day due to adverse weather (just a bit of wind to be honest!) and it meant we missed our return flights but the staff helped us immensely - helping us to call boat companies in Greece, flight companies, lending us phone chargers for our mobiles and giving us a room for an extra night at a slightly cheaper price!
The view we had from our twin room was wonderful (a view of Yialos bay and beach) - all rooms have air-con and a fridge - our room had a lovely little balcony and, although this is very un-PC we were pleasently surprised to find that smoking seems to be the accepted norm here! Yes i know, it's naughty but there's no getting away from the fact that we smoke!
Rooms, pool and apartment area were spotless and snacks available on site were yummy.
5 Mins walk downhill to the port area and gorgeous Yialos beach with watersports. 5 min bus ride up the hill (from right outside the hotel) to the village and the nightlife. 10 mins bus ride to Mylopotas beach.
Fantastic location, great people, lovely accomodation - what more could you want?
