We stayed at Pantheon Hotel for one week in September. We selected this hotel as we were seeking a quiet break away from the crowds.
It’s a family run hotel and the Gialouris family provide much more than a 3 star hotel. The rooms have little extras (spa slippers, emergency toothbrush and toothpaste, ample supplies of shower gel, shampoo and soap). Plus the air-conditioning and WiFi are included in the rate (some charge extra for this). There are about 24 rooms and I think all have balconies. We stayed in a superior double in the main building where the beds are bigger. The room was exactly as described and the bathroom was fine with fresh towels every day.
We accessed Wifi easily from our room (103), the balcony, the lobby, breakfast area and parts of the pool area. Breakfast was served until 10:00am which we liked as in bigger hotels it’s often 09:30am.
The hotel is located outside the main part of Tsivili so isn’t next to any noisy bars. It’s surrounded by olive groves and is close enough to easily walk to many restaurants and the beach. We walked out to restaurants most evenings and enjoyed cocktails back at the Pantheon later on and discovered that their cocktails are much better than many of the bars that do this full time! We also ate at the Pantheon and their food and service were excellent.
The family were incredibly pleasant and genuinely helpful. We’ve stayed at 5 star hotels all over the world. For us, the difference between a good and great hotel isn’t the room, it’s the staff. And as the staff were the family they were fabulous. They booked a taxi from the airport for us, organised a personal taxi tour of the best bits of the island and were really happy to help with any request. Above and beyond what you'd expect. And there is no way a bigger hotel would be as helpful.
A delightful hotel with probably the best team on the island.
