stayed here with two girlfriends as we were traveling through greece. by the looks of the hotel on the web site we thought it would be okay, as we were traveling on a budget and did not expect a four seasons. we got there and the owner said she had over booked (although the place looked totally empty) and needed to split us up in two rooms, we said NO way, and she some how found a three person room (she was trying to rip us off and make us pay for two rooms rather then one). The internet is crazy, the owner told us is cost 6 E for 2 hours, but decided to leave out the fact that you had to pay 15 E to rent the laptop (go into town, its 2E of one hour). The rooms were gross and the matress on the top floor was literally on the floor with sheets. There were cats running around the whole place. The pool is tiny, and looks nothing like it does on the web site. The owners were very nice but not helpful at all, we asked them to call us a cab the night before and they forgot, and we were very close to missing our ferry. All in all do not stay here, my adivice is to stay floser to Fira.
