What a welcome surprise this place is. The rooms are spacious and well cared for. The air conditioning was so quiet you could easily leave it on at night. The pool is big enough to just swim whilst others "play". The food is really good with a variety of choices, particularly at breakfast. The icing on the cake however is the wonderful, welcoming attitude of all the staff that we encountered, nothing was too much trouble for us.
As to the situation, there is a short walk into "downtown" Karavomilos or a very pleasant 20 minute walk along the seafront into the main square of Sami, the nearest town of note.
One bit of advice is to hire a car, although you wouldn't be hamstrung without one, you'll see so much more with one.
