If you are looking for a place where you feel part of a Greek family and experience all the hospitality and charm of Greece - this is definitely the place for you! As a South African it was truly wonderful to experience the Greek culture and hospitality in a hotel of all places (which is normally stiff and impersonal)

The hotel is run by a great family who make sure you enjoy your stay. The hotel is very well situated on the island and walking distance from great beaches and restaurants.

Although the restaurants is great, Mama Maria's food was the best I had during the trip - very authentic Greek!

Room Tip: All the rooms have great views!

I really loved this hotel near the climbing spots. Beautiful sunset and really nice pool area, walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Had a lovely dinner at the hotel too. Breakfast good with wide selection. The only minus during the stay were the other guests, some coughing and sneezing to the breakfast buffet and others wearing strong perfumes.. can't blame the hotel for their behavior :)

My boyfriend and I stayed here for about a week to go climbing. We chose this hotel because it was within walking distance to the Grand Grotta crag. For 51 Euros a night for basic stuff it was a bit over priced compared to other hotels. I was a bit disappointed that it cost so much for basically nothing but the cheapest room. No refrigerator in the room, breakfast wasn't included. It was 7 euros per person to eat breakfast.. No free water bottles in the room (can't drink the tap water here). The rooms were extremely outdated and hadn't been touched since the early 90's. The pink bedspreads weren't the cleanest and probably weren't washed often or at all... The bedsheets and towels were unusually stiff maybe from too much starch? The owner and his family run the hotel and were really friendly. However they would also stay awake talking on the terrace late into the night so it was hard to sleep. Also, if you stay here make sure you bring your own towel for the pool since they won't let you use a hotel towel.

We didn't stay here but we stopped by for coffee twice after climbing at Grande Grotta. It was quite and relaxing. Price was reasonable too. The staff seemed friendly and nice. A friend of mine ordered a wrong drink they replaced it without charging us extra.

Great spot for climbing and the owners are so nice. Central enough to restaurants and the beach as well, and it's only a short walk or scooter ride to most of the crags on the island. Sweet view of Telendos.
