We were awed by the beauty of this island and the beauty of The Kirini Hotel. Although the view is 5 star, we would not consider this worthy of a 5 star hotel rating, though, for the following reasons: 1) Our room was much smaller than expected for 700 Euros a night with awkward furniture and a sparse bathroom. The balcony was not private at all. The staff did oblige our request to lower the mirror in the bathroom so that I, a 5ft. 7 in (1 m,65) woman could see myself in the mirror. 2) The in room blowdryer was from the 1950's and I ran around the island with wet hair subsequently 3) Service was verrrrryyy slow 4) THE SPA WAS TERRIBLE - do not waste your money for one second!! The masseur made my husband keep his wet bathing suit on for his massage in the lobby of the spa!!!! (250 euros - a complete waste) ! 5) No complimentary shuttle pick up to and from the hotel. On the other hand, the new, young chef is wonderful. He was trained by a Michelin starred French chef and the food is delicate, precise, and well thought out. The fixed menu at The White Cave restaurant was beautifully prepared and delicious. The wine pairing was perfect, although parsimonious. We did feel rushed, though, throughout the meal. We agree with past reviewers regarding the lack of a true restaurant and bar on site. The staff was a bit too attentive and constantly present...hard to find privacy. The island is gorgeous with fabulous restaurants, but we will try someplace else next time.....
