Me and my wife got married on the island 3 days before we stayed at Athina for 2 nights (29th July - 31st) in the honeymoon suite (number 8 i think) - unbelievable. They couldn't have been more congratulating and genuinely seemed interested in wanting to hear the details! The best views you could possibly imagine. If your in the jacuzzi, lying in your bed or having breakfast, you still get a breathtaking view. The thing that made it was the little details, having an ipad that you could order a glass of wine or a beer and it would be with you in a matter of minutes. Excellent service and attention to detail was amazing.
During the day was nice and quiet, no rush for sunbeds first thing in the morning like other places. Could go away and come back and there would still be beds available. Menu during the day was nice and food excellently prepared.
Had food in their restaurant on the first night, food was different class. Chef came out after we had finished to make sure we enjoyed it and just for a general chit chat which was nice. Top it off with the view at sunset and we were asking ourselfs if this is the best place in the world.
Overall - not a bad word to say about the place. I usually like to moan as well but couldn't fault the place at all. Location, views, food and the general feeling of the staff caring for your needs instead of it feeling like a burden at some places didn't exist here. Best hotel we have stayed at and will 100% be back.
