Spent a week at this hotel at the end of August 2014 and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a RELAXING, chilled out break. The pool and surrounding areas are just perfect for a holiday with sunbathing in mind with no hassles or loud music. Many beaches nearby, within 2 minutes walking distance over the back of the hotel via a little path. There are plenty of more upbeat beach areas to choose nearby too if you prefer. Breakfast was informal and relaxed, you just help yourself to the buffet and plenty of seats/tables around pool or in the garden etc. We were happy with the food selection available: Toast, breads, cakes, pastries, cheese, ham, yoghurts and fruits. Staff were very approachable, and Hilary was easy to find and is a lovely person. It is a 3 star accommodation, so rooms are fairly basic, but what we expected for Greek 3 star. I would definitely return to this hotel when seeking a quiet holiday. There is not much to do in the evenings, but that adds to the charm of the place and hopefully that will not change as it is more difficult these days to find somewhere too unspoilt! It would be easy enough to get the local bus or a taxi to the busier areas. Also I would recommend a walk to Gerakas beach which is just stunning. There is a taverna close by Gerakas beach too which served amazing food. Food prices for eating out most places were about 8 euro per main meal. Wine about 10 euro per bottle. Taxi costs 28 euros from airport, (regulated tariffs). Taxi took about 15 mins from airport to the hotel. If you do want to sunbathe on beaches, its usually about 5 euro per 2 sunbeds plus umbrella. But there were always sunbeds available by the pool. Don't choose this as a holiday if you are seeking discos and trendy bars. And wear flat shoes!
