The hotel Castro is run by a very friendly Greek family. Almost always you can find some of the family members sitting in front of the hotel and chatting with their grandma. One of the daughters takes care of a wonderful tropical garden which provided fresh figs and grapes for the breakfasts. The rooms are very well kept and almost new. They have a large pool with several sunbeds and parasols. You can use A/C and fast wireless internet for free. They also provide a decent parking area.
The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk up-hills from Kamari beach very close to the open-air cinema. The breakfast are basic but decent enough: fresh bread, cheese, butter, jam, Greek yoghurt, some not home-made sweets, hot water, hotel-type coffee and fake juices. On some days you could get fresh fruit from their tropical garden.
The other daughter was a little bit too keen on using all available booking.com services. I was rather annoyed when my credit card was pre-authorised a week before my staying there. She also messed up some of the possibilities and booking.com informed me that I made a no-show on my second day of my stay at the hotel.
