A Genuine warm greek welcome with Maria and Matt very attentive throughout our stay. Great location with access to a fantastic beach just 40 min walk or 10 min drive. The rooms were clean and well equipped with excellent pool facilities

Small and cosy hotel directly on the the beach with very clean and spacious rooms. Swimming pool is absolutely perfect and clean. Unfortunately we stayed only one night because it was already full booked. Highly reccomended.

We were a bit unsure about this property while booking, but it turned out to be wonderful. It's a little bit on the pricey side, but definitely worth it - the hosts are welcoming, attentive and friendly, the pool is absolutetely clean, the view is splendid and the food is delicious (I especially recommend the apaki, give it a try!)....
