OK but no choice of where to eat
Only one restaurant, taverna within walking distance, and nothing else, so a car is essential and even then it is a good 10 /15 drive to he nearest other taverna, and another 10 minutes to the next. Not the kind of selection most people come to a Greek Island for.

Very good 8.0
Our stay at Porto Costello was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff, rooms were clean and comfortable. The only thing that lets it down is the location as there is nothing around it apart from a very lovely beach. The hotel does offer a free shuttle bus to Firá which is very helpful but only goes every 2 hours so if you want to explore you may need to hire a vehicle. Breakfast also wasn’t great so recommend getting the shuttle to Firá for breakfast. Pool area is lovely and it’s perfect for a base at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend

Access to the beach
nice and comfortable. The staff we're polite and helpful. Don't worry if your not in Thira as it takes seven minutes with the bus driver George. Enjoy yalos beach and their cuisine of a healthy sea food and quinoa twist. The weather will keep the atmosphere gentle and bright all through the stay.

Extremely Pleased With This Hidden Gem!
I extended my Mediterranean holiday by staying here for 4 nights at Porto Castello. It was my first time to Greece and this hotel and area did not disappoint. Only a short distance from the airport in a less populated area of the island, steps from the Sea and absolutely gorgeous coastline that is accessible, walkable and swimmable. They offer a very decent, ample continental style breakfast, free shuttle service every 2 hours to the city and airport transport for a fee. The room is clean spacious with a private outdoor sitting area. The pool is not heated but is I believe filtered sea water, deep and quite large with wonderful sitting, tanning spaces surrounded by gorgeous flowers. They offer a nice kiosk where you can purchase snacks, drinks or a very nice meal. There is also a very nice more upscale outdoor restaurant right on the beach, a dock where you can fish, watch boats and wild life. I would have stayed longer had I not other commitments. Staff is friendly and accommodating. The breakfast area and lounge are very nice, with spacious sitting couches and chairs and a large television for those that desire.

Great price, some minor issues
great price for the location and pool! Wish there was shampoo/toiletries in the bathroom upon arrival as we had been traveling for 18 hours and were looking forward to a quick shower.

Super slow wifi.
The hotel is beautiful, the owners were excellent and communicated well. I had to leave and go to another hotel because the wifi was so slow I wasn't able to work.

LOVED it! Would definitely go back.
It was great! The staff was very helpful, and the rooms were extremely clean and nice. Great location a 10-15 minute drive from the city (Fira) with a nice view of the water.

I would stay longer next time. I booked only for one night and was very impressed with everything. Hotel was only 2 minits away from the beach. Loved it

Poor 2.0
Old building. Clean. Toilet horrible. Plaque inside. Towels like board. Old and grey. I would not recommend this hotel. Unless you are strap for money. Only positive thing is location.
