Calm & tranquil hotel.
Calm & tranquil hotel with a pool, and one minute walk to the sea. Quiet & peaceful, away from all the madness. There's a free shuttle service to/from Fira every three hours. There are various breakfasts served untill 12pm. You can also order from a take away menu for lunch and dinner. Cindy and George are lovely. The only negative for me was smoking is allowed in the rooms..

We just stopped for for one night because we had a late arrival and it offered a reasonably priced shuttle. But now we want to go back and stay for longer! Quaint old fashioned hotel like stepping back in time but everything spotless so quiet if you don’t mind cats and wood pigeons. Can’t wait to return

Excellent place to stay. Team working in hotel extremely friendly and helpful. They help us with all the problems with other booking ( sightseeing booking). If I will be going again to Santorini I definitely will choose this hotel. Area is really relaxing, beach is only few yards from hotel and there is bar next to the beach. Beach is quiet, excellent for sunbathing and swimming. There is nice swimming pool in hotel , and rooms area cleaned daily, with fresh towels every second day. Hotel staff went above and beyond and they do provide free transportation to Thira and from Thira to hotel. If you look for friendly , quiet and climatic place this hotel definitely is ticking all the boxes.
