We were very disappointed in Madares. The location in Loutro is great but the room was very high up, over 70 steps but this wasn't the real problem. The room was dirty when we arrived, a full ash tray in the room. Although there was a fridge there was no ice tray or even plastic ice bags.the freezer door kept... More

We paid 40 euros for room only in May 16 which was competitive for the village. Staff are enthusiastic and helpful and speak good english. Booking by email possible. Having stayed before... More

Wonderful stay at the family run Madares Hotel in the village of Loutros. Our room was on the upper level of a hillside so there were many steps to get to it--but the view from our balcony was amazing--looking out over the beach and the bay scattered with boats. Our room was quite large and had air conditioning a refrigerator... More

The room was ok, but matresses very hard and the bathroom very smelly from the drain, especially in the morning. Had to give credit card informations when booking, and the receipt from booking.com said that owners would draw the money, but on leaving we... More
