Where to begin?! We went August 6-11 2009. The hotel picked us up at the airport and took us to Perivolas. Our room was ready, room 6. It is right next to reception, which we were worried about, but it was always quiet and private. The room was a Jr. suite, not big at all, but that was fine by us. Just a word or 2 about the rooms. This hotel is not for everyone, nor are the rooms. If you like the Ritz and the Four Seasons, this is not the place for you. This is rustic luxury. The shower has no curtain, not easy to angle it so the whole room isn't wet. I didn't love that. The shampoos and soaps are all L'Occitain, (spelling??) Just WONDERFUL! Your rooms were made up 2x a day.
We got a welcome drink in our room, which we used for an evening drink each night on our veranda while we watched the sun set.
The Pool was AMAZING! A little cold for my taste, but once you were in you didn't want to get out! There were people at then pool, but everyone was respectful and quiet.
The food, breakfast was good, but it got old after day 2. Yet I ate the same each day... juice (not a coffee person), cereal and milk, 1 hard boiled egg, some cheese and a mini croissant. We ate with the most amazing view each day. We ate lunch around 3PM each day. The best thing I had was the spinach salad with sun dried tomato dressing and manouri cheese. We also had the tomato mozzarella sandwich and the fete sandwich, good too. I liked to keep it light because it was VERY hot and I didn't want to eat much. We never had dinner at the hotel, we went into town. Our favorite place was Rocca, off the beaten path. We didn't got to the famed 1800 and Ambrosia, we didn't want American style in Greece. The food out of the hotel was OK, nothing to write home about.
All in all it was FAB! The view from our room, the privacy, the food (hotel only) and the pool. We can't wait to go back!
