    location is ideal if you want a place close to the surf. Few boards available in the place but boards are free so you get what you can. I stayed in a private room. clean and safe. all good
  • Birgit
    Dots has a wonderful location on the Hiriketyia beach and surf spot, shaded in lush vegetation. The manager, Shafni, took great care of us and the whole staff was so kind and friendly. Great breakfast, yoga classes, coworking space and fun events....

Company info

Dots first opened its doors in December of 2015, comprised of a single shipping container and five straightforward rooms. Dots was designed with the idea of providing something for everyone—and beyond that, introducing guests to entirely new experiences, as well as new faces. Focused on maintaining an open, relaxed atmosphere. We pride ourselves on being a locally-owned, sustainably-minded resort. We have set a community example by being the first plastic-free operation in the area, as well as serving organic and locally sourced food, and we continue to hold ourselves to a high standard of ecoconsciousness.

Property info
