In our view this fabulous small hotel sets the standard for all others on the island. The Yalis is built on a small cliff directly above the sea close to Votsi bay. Here you will enjoy high standards of comfort, spacious rooms, good service and wonderful views.

The hotel has just 20 rooms and suites split between its three buildings. All are very spacious and possess iron double bedstead, air conditioning, bathroom with full sized bath and shower, hairdryer, safety deposit box, light kitchen facilities (2 rings) with kettle and fridge, and an open-plan living room area with double sofa-bed for one adult or two children, and tv; and all ours have a large private sea-facing covered balcony or terrace. WiFi is provided free of charge.

The difference between the various room categories is mainly one of location, balcony size and some facilities. The higher category the room, the higher the floor and the better the sea views e.g. the Superior Suites are on the top floor, so ensuring the best views, and have a DVD and CD player; Double Suites are on the floor below also with excellent views; double premium rooms on the first floor have full sea view; Double Plus rooms on the ground floor have terrace with partial sea views.

At the top level is reception, lounge and bar. To one side is the goodsized sea water swimming pool (14m x 6.5m, depth 1m- 2m - pool towels can be provided) with furnished terrace surrounds and a low-key pool bar.

A five minute walk along a small road takes you down to Votsi bay which has a handful of tavernas and a pretty beach. Ten minutes in the other direction, towards patitiri, is the popular beach of Rossoum.

Due to the slightly elevated location of the hotel and steps within the property (there is no lift) the Yalis may not be suited to those with mobility problems. Please note that entrance from the small street behind is into the reception at the upper level of the hotel - from here so the Double and the Superior Suites have the easiest access (half a flight of stairs down or up respectively).
