Faros Resort
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Azolimnos
Reviewed 12 August 2011

We were assigned to this hotel by MidAmerica Productions, who assured us that every room was personally checked by a member of their staff, but our room in building 4, one of the nicest on the property, had leaking pipes from the toilet to a nearby drain. Other members of our group were not so fortunate, all of the rooms in the lower floor of building 6 had no windows or ventilation, a/c only in 1 of the 2-room "suite", dreadful odor of mildew, poor drainage in the showers, and very poor quality appointments and low standards of cleanliness. The 4-stars advertised are self-bestowed, this property would not rate even 1 star.
There was no porter service, so all 30 of us had to haul our cases up and down steps and along uneven pathways. The "internet in public area" could only be used by a handful of people at one time, or everyone's connection was dropped mid-task.

We spend 5 days at Faros which we thoroughly enjoyed. Along with its wonderful traditional Cycladic architecture the hotel offers modern facilities and services including a lovely outdoor swimming pool. The view to the sea from our balcony was mesmerising and the staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was spacious and clean and the setting quiet and peaceful. I would recommend it without hesitation and what's more i would go back there myself...for more!

Hello Travelers,

My name is Dean. I was a pastry chef in many hotels and I have done work with the Frommer Travel Guide. When we arrived in Greece for our first visit we stayed with Niko at the Faros. It was a well located hotel within walking distance to Azilimos village and a great beach. The hotel is very nice with a great breakfast and a big pool. I highly recommend Faros.

We went there for our honeymoon and it was nothing close to the 4 stars they claim to be. The first room they put us in was a small room that stunk like mold that we couldn't stay in there for long. No wonder the smell was so strong...the bottom of the mattress in the bed next to us was all black from mold! I couldn't keep the windows open because they had no screen to protect you from insects. I'm pregnant so we asked to be moved out of there the next morning. They placed us in the room next door that smelled like feces. The air-conditioner wasn't working. The pillows surrounding the bed were full of hairs from previous clients. The night stand and the bathroom counter had hairs also....so much for good hygiene! We bought chlorine wipes and cleaned the rusted bathroom ourselves!! The fridge was a piece of crap, the mosquitoes ate us up alive, the breakfast was so poor with canned fruits, hard boiled eggs and an omelette. I ordered a coffee and brought it to me with spoiled milk, TWICE! Then they charged us for room service 2 euros each time we placed an order! They're thieves to say the least. The place is barely a 2 star hotel with a nice view. And i'm shocked that people fall into their trap and actually pay 220 euros per night in that craphole! And btw, they have one person staff!! yup! ONE!!! He's the pool guy, the bell boy, the room service, the waiter, anything- you name it- he is! oh...and the last day we couldn't use the pool because they had just chlorinated it, something that they could have done during the night but i guess they couldn't move their lazy butts to do it and to just top it all off they told the greeks in the place but "failed to inform" the american group that was there for the aegan festival saying they were gonna put up a sign which they never did.

Room Tip: don't even bother spending your hard earned money there!

Where do I start? From the dirty rooms, to the cold & rusty black water and the supposed "private beach" which was full of garbage? Or the degraded turkey at breakfast time? Or the full of chloride swimming pool where a boy passed out from the smell? The owners were at least rude & provocative & did not took any responsibility for their damaged hotel. From the facilities they promote, not even one of them is real. There is a restaurant with no food(except frozen pizza), there is a private beach with garbage, there is a no athletic mini-courts, there is no mobile signal, no wi-fi connection. Finally, as the tip of the iceberg, one night a wedding party took place and we did not sleep at all. And the price for this hotel, believe me is outrageous! We feel such a suckers.
People should be warned to stay away, is a libel for the beautiful island of Syros! Such a shame.

Misleading information about the exact place!
Too much money for its services!
Rude and unacceptable behaviour!
Nothing special as far as the location, rooms and service!
