Property was amazing! The staff was incredible and friendly. Especially the three people working the front desk. The Masseuse was the best I’ve had in a while and I regularly need one due to a severe car accident I was in.

4/10 Fair

Disappointing standard for Small Luxury Hotel
Stay was not upto the standard expected. Oil stains on the bed head. Shower old and broken. Lack of information on the room. Cleanliness was good. Balcony overlooking the caldera was lovely. Disappointing hotel stay overall.

Service/View: Can't get better but mind the stairs! The hotel name says a lot about access for the disabled or poorly-abled. Please do not complain about the stairs! If you do you have not done your homework! If you complain about the view, you're blind! We were 10 days in Greece: 3 cities and the WOW moment out of all of them (including views of the Acropolis) was 20 steps from our taxi letting us off at the "entrance" to the hotel! Do yourself a favor and make sure you arrive during day time! There are some amazing workers for this hotel who earn their keep so please tip them! The 'bellboys' are hulking guys that carry your luggage down (& up) dozens if not 100 stairs! Let them do their job! The breakfast in bed guys do the same with your meal each morning! Special shout out to Spiros, behind the bar who was so incredibly hospitable! Ditto goes for the receptionist staff who was so helpful but the evening person (don't remember her name but she's going off to university in Wales in a few weeks) was especially awesome! The rooms are all different so see if you can get info/pictures about the interior of YOUR room! We had #15 & #16. Both were one "floor" below the pool/bar area. #15 was a traditional room all on one level but #16 was artistically amazing with the bed on a raised stone area and the bathroom was also up some stairs. Gave #16 to my 20-something kids who have better mobility than their 50-something parents! Balconies were the same and AWESOME!
