It's not a big or chain-like hotel -- quite the opposite. Every detail is carefully taken care and the treatment given by the owners is indeed special, making you feel like you're part of the family. Rooms are new and of very good quality. You can notice that they thought through all the details to make guests more comfortable and the stay more enjoyable.
Location is good if you're planning to explore the island rather than staying in a single place. The villas are located centrally, very close (5 min walk) to the main bus station.
There's no "hotel breakfast" but they do provide almost everything you need for you to prepare your own breakfast. Just open the mini-bar and it's all there. She even gave us a local white wine for us to try!
One example why they go above and beyond the expected service is the free transfer. I booked the 2-bedroom studio thinking I'd need to take a taxi or shuttle from the port. Surprisingly though, Maria contacted me by email to make sure she had all the information to pick us up at the port and transport us for free to the hotel. She also took us back to the port, of course.
Also, while we waited for the apartment to be ready or for the car to take us to the port, they served us juice, snacks, chocolate.
