The place is not at all what you see in the pictures! It is an 80's hotel, supposed to have a fully equipment kitchen, but we only found 3 or 4 dishes. The view was nice, but you have to climb up to the mountain to find your room. The internet connection was really slow. Definitely not family friendly.

If you are travelling with car and if you are searching for some privacy far from the noisy big hotels it's the best for you. The hotel is situated on the little mountain not far from the beaches and the village. The rooms are greek-style decorated (white and blue) and are very nice, you will have everything you need in...

I stayed for 4 nights only on a short break by myself. When I arrived I was met with a warm and friendly welcome and shown to my delightful room. I think I may have been the only "Brit" in the place but my fellow guests were very pleasant and cheery. The Breakfast was plentiful if not a bit repetitive...

My son and I stayed here last July. Our room was lovely and we had our own terrace with a view of the sea. We were the only English people there - and judging by one of the other reviews, no-one noticed (which was probably a compliment). The pool was beautiful (sea water i think), and it was only a...

A little bit hard to find,located on one small hill overlooking Koutsounari this hotel is unpretentious and essential. Breakfast and dinner buffet have limited options, however the food was amazing. Final rating is affected by the fact that our room did not have any sea view as advertised in our booking.

I could write a very long review about this beautiful place, it brings back lovely memories! There we found refuge for our family last August when we had to leave from another local hotel due to their poor service (see my other review). It was such a revelation to find it as not only we enjoyed our precious family time...

The rave reviews caused me to choose this hotel. It is a poor choice if you walk with a cane and have mobility issues. The people who run this hotel are wonderful, the views are just like the pictures, but the site was not as good as one of the hotels on the beach. The hotel sitshigh on the slopes...

“It depends what you want - we enjoyed the sea view and being close to the bar/pool area, although if we went again we might like to book one of the bigger rooms on an upper floor. There was wifi - but it only worked outside on the terrace - not that it matters in such amazing weather.”
