Our favourite rooms
For proximity to the spa (and the best views), ask for a room on the top floor. If decadent anytime dips are a must, book a Studio Suite with a Pool. And if you like your petite pools to come with balmy bubbles, blow the budget on Artemis, where a Med-facing hot tub is the highlight of your terrace.
The rooftop spa has a sea-facing pool, and there are two more outside for families: one lagoon-style spot and one with a bar you can swim to.
The newly installed spa spans the top floor of the hotel, with a sauna, gym and treatment rooms for hi-tech rejuvenating facials, mani-pedis and holistic massages. Nutritionists and personal trainers are on hand for enthusiastic guests.
The seafront setting and magic Mediterranean weather mean one thing: rotating swimwear, with some cover-ups for not looking as well-roasted as your compatriots in the island’s more tourist-favoured parts.
The main areas are all accessible via lifts and ramps, but there are no specially adapted rooms for wheelchair users.
All ages welcome, but over-11s will have to pay an extra-adult supplement. Extra beds and cots can be added to some rooms, and connecting rooms are available. Babysitting is available for €16 an hour, plus an extra charge after midnight.

Two of the pools are family friendly; littles must be supervised by a parent at all times.
Most of the restaurants have dedicated menus, colouring books and highchairs, and staff are happy to heat up baby food. Ouranos doesn’t have a kids’ menu but Little Smiths are welcome. Amorosa only permits children who do not need a highchair.
