    No cons for this property.

    Hotels location and rooms. The rooms are all under the view of Mylopotas beach with balcony. Also we had daily towel change and this is a big plus. Staff was really polite!!

    If I had to choose... the steps. So many steps.

    The steps. My room was above the pool. I had a nice view of Mylopotas beach and the sunrise was glorious. Within walking distance from the beach. Breakfast was brilliant (the chef Mr Ilias always had fresh pie every day). Everyone was helpful and friendly and made my stay even better.

    The facilities were good - nice pool area and a lovely pool bar. The sun loungers had leather mattresses on them which made lying out in the sun rather difficult as they were unbearably hot. The pool itself was lovely though. The room was spacious and we had a gorgeous view of the sea. The beds however were like rocks and made for very uncomfortable sleeping. The reception area was interesting.... it took over 30 mins to get checked in as the receptionists were dealing with numerous people and answering phones all at once. Their “baggage storage” on offer was interesting too - they just left the bags lying around reception, there was no proper storage. Our bags were fine but it could have been the case that someone may have accidentally taken one.... they also held on to my passport which was strange as no other hotel in Greece did this. Overall it was a good stay but with a few minor tweaks it could be amazing.

    Small showers and the shower heads weren’t facing in the right direction so you had to manually use the shower. Was a small inconvenience but was the only downfall I could pick.

    The location, style and ambience, the pool and bar and variety of breakfast options was great. The room sizes were perfect and the balconies had great view of the beach.

    SOME of the hotel reception staff were exceptionally rude. The spa experience was not good. I booked a massage 2 days in advance only to be told a minute before the treatment that the masseuse was not available. The spa is apparently run separately from the hotel and there seems to be a communication problem between the hotel reception desk (where you book your treatments) and the actual spa staff.

    Poolbar, barman was very helpful and friendly, pool area, general poolside experience and the setting including view of the hotel.

    Great location by the beach. Close to Far Out Beach Club but away from the madness. Great pool with friendly staff. Would recommend for those in their 20s-30s. The buffet breakfast was good too. The public bus to the town and to the port went from just outside the hotel so it was easy to get around.

    The rooms are tiny. The beds are extremely uncomfortable and you have to make your own bed upon arrival. The air-conditioning is hopeless and the breakfast is terrible. But the worst part of this hotel is the staff, mainly on reception. There is no consistency between them.. We were told different things by different staff members about a number of things. They are unwilling to help or provide a decent hotel service...just asking for a drinking glass (which did not come with the room) was an absolute pain for them and they aren’t shy about it either. They told us we can’t drink the water yet didn’t provide any in the fridge (which was empty). Our hair dryer was broken and they didn’t care. The only thing I can say is the manager and man behind the bar at the pool we’re actually good people. I don’t recommend staying here.

    The view is the only good thing about this hotel

    The staff was unwelcoming and unfriendly and even at times rude. I asked for a restaurant recommendation and they seemed very uninterested in helping! They also arranged our transfer to the port for our ferry, but made us go 3 and 1/2 hours early, so we were forced to sit down there forever as we watch multiple other Far Out shuttle drop people off. They also take your passport when you check in and keep it in an unlocked desk drawer, would recommend giving your drivers license instead! And to top it off the beds were the most uncomfortable beds of all time! Might as well of slept on the floor! And they don't give you blankets..just a sheet..and when I unfolded my sheet there was blood stains on it!!! I would never recommend this place to anyone!

    Beautiful view and great location. Can easily walk down to the beach, though it can be dangerous with the narrow roads and blind turns
