This was my first trip to Greece. The incredible hotel staff were amongst the best I have met during all my travels. Nothing was too big an issue to help sort out. From arranging last minute transfers, to safety tips, to recommendations about local food and ATM's. It is a relatively new hotel in a great location. It has a great vibe and would definitely be going back if I am in that part of the world.

From start to finish The Modernist was amazing. The staff were helpful and always seemed to be smiling. Their recommendations for restaurants in the area and spas were spot on. We had the XL room with wrap around balcony and jacuzzi tub. Amazing views! All of the little extras in the room with personalized notes made us feel quite special! The rooftop terrace is relaxing and the food was amazing! Breakfast is served in the little restaurant on the ground floor. Wide variety and everything was delicious! Overall did not want to leave and would love to return!
