I have stayed in hotels all over the world. This is one of the very best that I have stayed in.
The owners are very attentive, friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The location is perfect and as there are only 11 rooms, it is never overcrowded. The breakfast is sumptious with so much of it home made by Petroula, the joint owner, who is a brilliant cook.
An atmosphere of calm pervades the whole place and eating our dinner on the terrace as night fell was an experience that I'll never forget. We can't wait to return.

A kind welcome, the owner made me feel as if I were the most important person in the world. A great location, a few metres to a quiet, very pretty harbour, with a place to swim and waterfront restaurants with excellent views and very good food. The breakfast was wonderful. I will stay here again.
We had a great time at the Joanna Hotel. It was exactly what we were looking for: a quiet retreat from our hectic lives that enabled us to be independent. Like many small hotels in Greece, it came equipped with a small kitchenette, allowing us to cook throughout our stay - when they realised we were cooking, washing up liquid, a sponge and a tea towel appeared. It was a large room with a balcony - no sea view, but very quiet. Comfortable bed, and kept immaculate every day. Theologos was very helpful with suggestions on places to see (my husband particularly loved Psili Ammos beach, less than an hour's walk away) and helped with practical things like car rental, and was happy to chat as well. Grikos is obviously a growing resort now with a large expensive hotel on the town beach - we prefer a less developed location usually, but it only took ten minutes to reach quieter beaches by foot, and the town beach was nice for swimming. Several good restaurants - we particularly liked Ktima Petra, who grow their own veg. Only complaint - no shop in the village! We didn't have a car the whole time, so shopping was a pain, esp. as the water isn't drinkable. This didn't detract from the hotel, which we loved.
