Our little trip to Greece was a little while ago now but I still wanted to share the hotel details with you, it was such a great little place…

We started off quite badly by missing our flights  so missed our first night, the hotel couldn’t have been nicer about the whole thing and reassured me via email that our booking would be unaffected and we could be picked up the next day.

We were met at the airport by a driver (despite our flight landing a little late) who refreshed us with bottles of iced tea and told us about the island’s places of interest as we drove and a short ride later we arrived…

I loved the lobby!

If, unlike my Husband and I, you don’t travel with laptop’s then they have some for you to use here… we also had free wi-fi at the hotel for our stay, I really dislike hotels that charge especially as it only seems to be the bigger chain that do so.

It means my Husband can stay on top of his work (being self-employed) which means we are both more relaxed… also I can get my instagram fix.

The hotel is such a calming place, it felt like a spa with all the whites and muted colours…

We were then shown to our huge room… that bed, man I miss that bed…

There was also a seat and a sofa-bed plus a long bench and a table. So much room to spread out.

The bathroom was, as most hotels have now, a basin and shower in the room and a separate toilet.

I loved the brushed concrete walls and the mood lighting in the shower…

Most of all I loved our view, we were overlooking the pool, although not huge this was the bigger of the two pools… and waking up to this every morning was heaven, for the first time in a long time my Husband slept in and I was the early riser getting in little swims before he woke…

The practicalities…  the pool is fairly small but we never found it overcrowded, and we always managed to get one of the six sun loungers when we wanted one, this might not be the case in high-season but we never found it an issue and liked that it was a quieter place to go when we didn’t want to be on the beach.

They also provided towels free of charge for the pool and beach leaving your fluffy white ones in the room.

I loved the little fairy lights in the pool at night too, magical.

And so the beach…

This hotel is smack bang on the beach, the restaurant where you eat breakfast everyday spills out onto the sand, and has a number of sun beds and day beds, sofas and tables with and without shade to choose from…

This is what I long-looked forward to in the run up to getting away… sitting in the sun with a glass of wine…

drinks

The hotel plays music from early until late so although the beach rooms had an even better view than us they had a lot more noise to contend with, and the beach was a lot busier.

The beach was pretty much full of sun loungers, which I didn’t mind at all but then it wasn’t too busy. I imagine in high season this might not be my favourite place to be… as I like smaller, less busy beaches. 

Breakfast here was wonderful as well, they had the most amazing Greek yogurt and honey, which I could not get enough of, as well as juices and coffee etc.

They had an omelette chef ready and waiting if that was your desire… as well as a number of breads and baked treats and Greek pies…

…and the view, couldn’t have been better.

We didn’t eat at the hotel much purely because we were only there for such a short time and we love to explore but I did have to enjoy some sunlounger food action one afternoon and I loved that all I had to do was press a button on our umbrella and one of the wonderful staff members came to take my order… and the burger was everything a burger should be… huge and so tasty.

My chocolate shake was awesome too.

lunch

I would like to mention I did eat mostly Greek food the rest of the time!

And this is the water… the final amazing detail I have to share.

sea

It was my kind of beach… not too busy (we were there early June, I am told it gets super busy), plenty of sun loungers, which by the way are free when you stay at the hotel, the water was cool and salty so I could float away to my heart’s content, and it was still and clear… which means I don’t get knocked about or scared.

It was the perfect place for a relaxing Babymoon.
