Arrived on a late-ish flight at around 10.00 p.m. and check in was quick and straight forward. Katarina was happy to prepare anything from the menu even though we were so late and we had a lovely cocktail to start our holiday.
Frantcis, George and Katarina really make this a warm and inviting holiday experience. We have stayed in many different types of accommodation (from downright dreadful to 5*) and our time at the Sunny View ranked as one of our favourite holidays. This is due to the owners warmth, cleanliness of room, availabilty of beds round the pool, variety and quality of home cooked food. The accommodation is simple and honest - no frills but comfortable with free wi-fi which always worked and a TV with a couple of Sky channels if you really want to watch it. Aircon, if you need it is at a small charge - we prefer to try to acclimatise but by day 5 we submitted and used it as the temperatures had really soared.
Dont think I can think of any negatives - yes it is a 30 minute walk to Kardamena town (or 6 eu taxi fare, or 1.80 eu bus fare) but you should have worked that out before booking I guess. The walk is along a gorgeous coastline and we tried to do the round trip each day for the exercise, sometimes jumping in the sea on the return walk 'just because you can'. Buses do pass by one side of the hotel - but not so often and it is certainly not intrusive and its quite handy to jump on and off if you choose this mode of transport into town.
What a lovely family-run hotel and a great bbq night shared by residents, plus friends and family of the owners so the atmosphere was great. George - thank you again for going out of your way for us (you know why....!) - your an absolute gentleman and made us feel special.
Missing you all already and working on our next trip to stay with you as we speak.
Really recommend a trip to this hotel and this island if you want to get out of the All Inclusive rat race and if you want to experience 'real' people, 'real' food in a lovely location.
