Bon séjour à Diafani

Pour une nuit à Diafani, l'hôtel est parfait. Nous avons été bien accueillis et l'appartement était très propre et très agréable avec la petite terrasse. La plage et les restaurants se situent en bas de l'hôtel.

Pros: L'accueil et la propreté

Cons: L'aspect extérieur

Location: Une journée à Diafani est suffisante.

5/5 Excellent

Los apartamentos son estupendos y el personal muy atento y agradable.Muy recomendables


Monolocali semplici per coppie all'avventura

La sistemazione è semplice e senza fronzoli ma c'è tutto quello che serve. I proprietari sono disponibili e gentili. Il villaggio in cui è situato l'hotel è molto piccolo e tradizionale, adatto a chi ama vacanze indipendenti e posti poco battuti. Per questo la sistemazione è adatta per coppie più che per famiglie.

Pros: La conduzione familiare, la pulizia

Cons: La colazione (5€) non è all'altezza

Location: Diafani non è la località ideale per visitare l'isola, essendo le strade disagevoli.ottima per la visita di Olimpos, di Sarìa e delle spiagge del nord

Liten mysig by med endast två små supermarkets, OBS ingen bankomat i byn så ta ut pengar på flygplatsen! Jättebra hotell, dock kostar transfern 130 euro, något som kom som en chock för oss. Bilresan tar visserligen 2 timmar. Urmysig liten by med gemytliga och prisvärda restauranger (dolphins bla).
