Peacefully located above Agia Efimia bay, a short 10 minute walk to the north of the waterfront and only a minute or two from the pristine white pebbles of Paradissos beach, the Gonatas Hotel occupies a superb position and commands fabulous views across the sea to Sami.

Reception and lounge are on the first floor, reached by a number of steps. The hotel has only 25 rooms, all with air-conditioning, wifi, plasma TV, hairdryer, fridge, shower room and balcony. Furnished in a simple traditional style most of ours possess both a double and a single bed. Sunvil rooms are all front facing on the first or top floor and enjoy fine sea views from their balcony.

The swimming pool is of a good size and popular with residents and non-residents alike.

The 10 minute walk to the village is a pleasant one, along a narrow undulating road which runs above the sea passing a number of other tempting pebble coves along the way. The nearest restaurant is the well-reviewed Paradise above the beach just a minute's walk from the hotel. From the small harbour onwards you will find a good choice of tavernas, cafes and village shops.

The Gonatas is essentially a comfortable family-run and friendly small hotel, so although service can sometimes tend to the ‘Greek’ it is always willing. We think the location and views here are unbeatable in the area, and would certainly be the envy of many larger establishments.
