Written on: 01/08/2008 by Jasonhrb (1 review written)

We had a fantastic time at the Fotini Complex. The rooms themselves are fairly basic, but clean and comfortable. The rest of the complex is also immaculately kept, and the pool area is a lovely place to relax. The views from the rooms are gorgeous too, with a view straight out over the sea.

However, none of this explains the charm of the Fotini (although it does help!). The thing that truly makes the Fotini Complex special is the unbelievably warm welcome that Fotini and her family (the complex is run by three generations of the same family) provide. They really can't do enough for you, and treat you like a guest of the family.

We ate out most evenings, and generally the food was excellent. On the one and only occasion where we had a bad meal in a restaurant in town, Fotini and her father were most upset on our behalf. Indeed, they decided that such things were unacceptable, and personally drove us to an excellent restaurant the next evening (also instructing the owners to drive us back!!). They also provided all of the guests at the bar with a share of a family barbecue and birthday cake one evening when they had a family celebration. These moments summed up the exceptionally warm and hospitable atmosphere that makes the Fotini complex special.

The nearest thing to a downside is the hill which others have mentioned, but even that isn't (in our opinion) that big a deal unless you have walking difficulties. It also allows you to enjoy the fabulous view from the complex. Paleokastritsa itself is also lovely, with lots of excellent restaurants (Nausika was our personal favourite, but there are several good ones), and a lovely relaxed feel to the place. It is also very very pretty (as well as surprisingly green), and not too "touristy". A perfect place for a quiet getaway.

We will definitely be going back to the Fotini Complex, and would highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't expect the height of five star luxury. Especially if you want to be treated as a guest, rather than just a customer.
