Beautiful location, Stunning views. George on reception friendly and helpful. Bed very comfy and everything clean, bit of a musty smell in wardrobe. Expected a few more niceties in room eg drinks making facilities and tissues

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great little spot.
Lovely hotel and amazing view. The service was excellent, nothing was too much to ask, reception arranged all taxis, excursions, and restaurant reservations for us, and upgraded us to a suite. The breakfast was also great - good selection and delivered to your room balcony! The only thing I would say is that the photos of the room were better than the real thing... Our shower was quite small / awkward shaped and smelt when you turned it on, and apart from the fact it was cave-like, the room wasn't anything special really (also lacking some of the listed room facilities). The balcony with view does make up for it, but the parasol holes are fixed in completely the wrong spots (you only get shade for about 1-2hrs of the day). The greek salad at the poolbar is LUSH and the cocktails really good too (and not too expensive either)!!

Incredible views and friendly service
We had a fantastic stay! The hotel is right on the cliffs with amazing views. Love how each room has their own sun loungers. The daily room service breakfast was fresh and tasty, great selection! Very attentive and friendly staff.

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Small, uncomfortable, loud.
Really not sure what all the good reviews are about on this one. We stayed in room 23, near the reception for 3 nights. We couldn't wait to check out. You can hear 100% of all foot traffic, voices from other rooms and walkways. The door had no deadbolt or lock from the inside. There was no peep hole either, and no way to put up a 'do not disturb' sign (the electronic switch was broken) - didn't feel very safe or private. The bed is very soft and lumpy. We slept terribly the entire stay. The lights from fire alarm and router are so bright that they light up your room during the night. The a/c gave me an upper respiratory cold since it blows right on top of the bed and probably hasn't been cleaned out. Additionally, the sinks and shower didn't drain. The towels were very tattered and old (similar comment made by another reviewer) - felt like sand paper. We expected the room to be small, but even with those expectations we were surprised. I used to live in NYC and this was still shockingly small to me. The pool area is unappealing and cramped. Not a place you'd hang out in. The staff was kind and helpful, but we really didn't ask too much of them to be honest. Nearby restaurants Anogi and Rare Meat are excellent.
