My hubby and I are doing a "Half Way Round The World Trip" staying in hotels for 9 months. We have, in our lives, been fortunate enough to visit lots of beautiful and exotic places but nothing compares to our stay at The Adonis Hotel in Apollon.
We had booked a week and ended up staying 3 weeks! We did not hire a car. The moment we arrived we were made to feel as if we were the first ever guests to be here. Such a warm and friendly welcome from everyone at the hotel, it was as if we were returning home. All of the staff and family were our host's. We were seated and given cold drinks and a homemade lemon sweet which was much appreciated after our journey. Our Sea View room was, traditional, perfectly basic and spotlessly clean with a balcony for us to sit and watch the sea. At night to fall asleep listening to the waves was special indeed. We never saw one mosquito in all that time.......and they just love me.
The food was delicious. Breakfast was a cold buffet with loads to choose from (including homemade produce with fruit and vegetables grown by the owner......in his allotment just down the road). We had cooked breakfast on a few occasions which was equally delicious. The evening meals never failed to impress us.......apart from the night I decided to try the little fish in tempura batter.....they were lovely but I couldn't eat 40 of them. Every morning there was a choice of what you would like for your evening meal and I am quite sure any requests that could be met would be. The menu was traditional and cooked to perfection! The salads were always crunchy and fresh, followed by fresh fruit or better still some homemade liqueur (strawberry was my favourite). I could go on and on about the food but give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Everyday our room was cleaned beautifully........nothing special about that I hear you say and I would agree but....it was always done whilst we were at breakfast......never had to wonder if we could use the bathroom or have a rest without being disturbed. I thought about naming people but decided to say.......everyone within The Adonis made our stay very special. Thank you.
Apollon has several tavernas and we tried a few, all were good and the owners welcoming but our favourite for food and drinks was "To Limanaki" the last in the harbour that belongs to Yannis who was my knight in shinning armour (another story!) where we spent many an hour just looking at the view and enjoying breaking the communication barrier.
It is not the building that makes The Adonis Hotel such a magical place but it's the people within it.
