We stayed here in May 2014 - {not 2016, so review is a bit behind} We loved the small & friendly aspect of this hotel, right across the road from the beach. Our room was basic but adequate enough for our needs. We booked Bed & Breakfast and although there was not a lot of choice; very continental, it sufficed...

Stayed for 1 week at the end of September. After reading the reviews I was expecting a relatively basic hotel but not to the degree it was. 1. The beds - I like a firm mattress but this was ridiculous, the pillows were like bricks. I did not get a good nights sleep in the whole week and got up...

We have just returned from our second visit to Hotel Makis, had a lovely holiday, great staff and location, I think this is a typical Greek style, family run hotel, it could do with a little update to the rooms, the beds for instance are not very comfortable, and the double beds are so small, but we will return as...

Have just spent a week at Makis hotel and really enjoyed it. Staff were all lovely and attentive. Yes the breakfast is the same everyday but still nice, best Greek yoghurt I've had! Rooms are clean and a nice size, safe, fridge and air con all included which is a big bonus in Greece, beds are a little hard though....

Dennis,the owner, manager, host, odd job man and demon scooter rider is a very lucky man. He has a very loyal clientele who provide regular repeat custom. His front of house staff are friendly and professional and his behind the scenes staff are hard working diligent and work very long hours. All that said the hotel is what it is...

Just got back from a week at the "Makis", lovely ground floor room with terrace (301), spotlessly clean, good shower, Aircon & safe included in price. Comfortable for what we paid considering this is Greece........some people complain about the beds being hard, it didn't interfere with our sleep. Breakfast is a bit repetative, perhaps some bacon on some mornings would...

If you were thinking about staying at this hotel , think again. Rooms 403 and 404 should be condemed , receptions staff have no personality and very rude, beds damp and no protective covers over and all stained including pillows. In restaurant nothing covered , sugar bowls had dead wasps in them and no variety of food. Would go back...
