Reviews from tripadvisor:

1. “All at the top!”
Our best vacation in Greece. We spent a great time in Astypalia. Beautiful location for a really friendly hotel. Mariakis family did all the best to enjoy our stay. We want to maintain our tradition to come every summer at Tholaria hotel.  
 
2. “Ενα μοναδικό ξενοδοχείο σε ένα μοναδικό νησί.”
5 από 5 αστέριαΗ εκπληκτικοτητα της τοποθεσίας σε συνδυασμό με την μοναδικότητα που σου προσφέρει το κάθε δωμάτιο, είναι πραγματικά απίστευτη. Το πρωινό από τα χέρια της κυρίας Λιτσας πλούσιο σε γεύσεις. Και γενικότερα η οικογένεια Μαριακη, σε κάνουν να νιώθεις τόσο φιλόξενος, που εγώ πλέον τους θεωρώ πραγματικούς φίλους.

4. “Legendary Hospitality Exceeds Expectations”
5 από 5 αστέριαABOUT ASTYPALAIA...
I love Greece so much and I've been to Athens and 9 of the islands so far, including Mykonos to which I've travelled 12 times. I can say that out of all the islands, this is the one which made me understand the true meaning of Greek Hospitality.

You read about hospitality and generosity, especially towards travellers, In Homer & other classical studies literature. Offering a stranger food and shelter is the stuff of mythologies (Greek, Nordic etc.). It sounds like a cliche of a romanticized past which may never have existed. Yet, on my very first morning in Astypalaia, an elderly gentleman walked up to me and extended his hand to offer me two small cubes of feta cheese and a couple paksimades (barley Rusks). He saw me standing at the bus station in the shadow of one of the windmills and I guess that to him, I was a traveller... far away from his home & family ... far away from whoever is in charge of making me breakfast. Stunned, I thanked him profusely and explained that I had just had a very hearty breakfast at the hotel Tholaria where I was staying. Although I declined the generous offer, that gentleman's gesture was so significant and powerful. In my world, no one ever walks up to to you and offers you food in that context & on their bare hand. It was from the heart. 
ABOUT THOLARIA
The hotel is cozy & homey. The decor presents the rustic & traditional in a modern, effortless way. My bed was very comfortable and the bedding can be described as plush. The view was fantastic and the absolute quiet during the evening made for a very restful holiday.
ABOUT THE SERVICE
The long intro I gave was important because everything that I experienced at this hotel echoed my experience at the bus stop. In terms of value for money, I think the service & hospitality I got were worth a lot more than I paid for or expected. Actually I got a lot more than service, I felt like I was part of the family. But this review is about service, so I will talk from my point of view as a hotel guest. For starters, The hotel offered free of charge airport pick up & transport to and from the ferry terminal. I should mention that I required 4 such journeys during my stay as I was island hopping and Astypalaia was my hub. I tried to hire a taxi, but Mike the hotel manager (who handles all the bookings and inquiries & doubles as a handyman, guide, driver & website designer etc.) & his wife wouldn't hear of it, they insisted to take me themselves. It didn't matter that the Ferry departed at 5 am or arrived at 2 am. It was all part of their hospitality. I wasn't the only guest at the hotel but I certainly felt like I was the only one. It is no surprise 100% positive feedback.The breakfast was fabulous. The mini croissants & pastries (Baked by the mother Lietsa & Gedra, who also does also does housekeeping, every morning at 5 am) were addictive and the homemade jams (made by the father from his own fruit garden) were exquisite (Quince, Bergamot, Lemon, figs, Apricot, Orange etc,) ... Leitsa was mother to everyone. Not only did she cook a killer breakfast, She once made a mean "Spaghetti Moschari" which almost made me cry. It was comfort food at it's best and it came at a very good time. I was feeling down one day and didn't go out of my room due to being stranded without a car, so feeling concerned about my absence from the scene, Lietsa knocked on my door at lunch time and surprised me with a huge portion. Needless to say I nearly licked the plate clean. She invited me to dinner and drove me to the ATM on several occasions. She had the best restaurant recommendations. She knows where the best Dolmades & Fried Baby Shrimp in the world are. She knows where to get the best haircut ... the list is endless. As the saying goes, mommy knows best! 

5. “back to home”
we really felt like home! the family that owned the hotel was very kind and available in any services or information! as far as the hotel is concerned, i suggest it to everyone! every corner of it was unique with many little special details. the vue is amazing, combining both the castle and the sea. it feels like you belong there.But the best of all was the breakfast! i cannot imagine something that i would like and i didn t find it! and all of them were hand made by the family! Also, both the centre of the island and the central beach livadi were about 5 to 10 minutes on foot!shortly, i really recomend it to everyone! i found quality in everything! 
 
6. “My best room”
What can I say for this hotel.We have been in Astypalaia island for some days in June and of course we stayed in Tholaria Boutique Hotel. Our room was fantastic with sea view. The owners were very very friendly and the helped us for all.Also, the breakfast was fantastic.If you want to Astypalaia, we suggest you this hotel. 
 
7. “the only choice in Astypalaia”
we stayed in this hotel for summer holidays ( July 2013 ).the hotel is located just 4 minutes ( walking ) from the square and 5 minutes (walking ) from the beach of livadi.the room was always clean .Also our room was very nice with wanderful sea view.the best all is the breakfast which is fully handmade and traditional.do only there...... 
 
8. “Affordable luxury and great atmosphere”
When we arrived by the ferry from Amorgos at 3:30 in the night, we were picked up by the hotel and got a free transfer! Our suite with jacuzzi was just beautiful. And from our balcony with the jacuzzi we could walk directly to the swimming pool. The hostess and her son were so attentive and nice all the time. In the morning she prepared a lovely breakfast and they were always around when we entered or left the hotel, so it was easy to drop a question or two. The hotel is just a 6 minutes walk from the lovely town of Chora with the windmills. And if you are going to the beach of Livadi, it's also just a short walk from the hotel. After reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor and visiting their Home Page, I did have high expectations to this hotel and they were more than full filled! 
 
9. “Απλά ΥΠΕΡΟΧΟ”
Μία εκπληκτική κατασκευή, πανέμορφα διακοσμημένη με φιλοξενία που χαρακτήριζε πάντα το Αιγαίο. Η θέα από τα δωμάτια είναι εκπληκτική, το πρωϊνό σπιτικό (φτιάχνεται μπροστά μας) και οι ιδιοκτήτες δεν είναι ξενοδόχοι, είναι μερακλήδες σπιτονοικοκύρηδες. Σε κάνουν να νιώθεις "σαν στο σπίτι σου"!!! 
 
10. “Outstanding Hotel”
Beautiful property - well furnished and comfortable with outstanding hillside location providing a stunning view of the chora and sea.Owners made us feel immediately welcome. Room well maintained and clean with sea view and wifi access. Breakfast taken on an outside terrace with breathtaking views was of high quality with a different local speciality providing variety each day.Property is well located to access the Chora and nearby beaches, country walks and local amenities.This place is special . Get it booked, you won't be disappointed!!.

13. " εξαιρετικό "
Εξαιρετικό ξενοδοχείο, εξαιρετικό οι ιδιοκτήτες ήταν πολύ εξυπηρετικοί, πολύ φιλικό είναι ένα ξενοδοχείο, όπου θα νιώσετε σαν στο σπίτι μου αλλά με την εξυπηρέτηση ενός πολύ καλό ξενοδοχείο. Έχετε προσωπική εξυπηρέτηση από τους ιδιοκτήτες ( κυρία Λίτσα, γιου της Μιχάλη και ολόκληρη η οικογένεια, ακόμη και μια μικρή σκύλο το όνομά του Μπελένε ήταν φανταστικό. Το πρωϊνό είναι σπιτικά και αξίζει το βραβείο για το καλύτερο ελληνικό παραδοσιακό πρωινό. Μας άρεσε η τοποθεσία, η θέα και τα δωμάτια, αρκετά ευρύχωρο και με όλες τις ανέσεις. Έχουμε ταξιδέψει πολύ και έχουμε πάει σε πολλά πολυτελή ξενοδοχεία σε όλο τον κόσμο. Πιστεύω στις δεύτερες ότι Θολάρια Boutique Hotels αντιπροσωπεύει αυτό το νησί της Αστυπάλαιας προσφέρει στους επισκέπτες: απλότητα μαζί με την ποιότητα. Νομίζω ότι nowdays ιδιοκτήτες του ξενοδοχείου πρέπει να ακολουθήσετε περισσότερο από ποτέ τη φιλοξενία Θολάρια φιλοσοφία. να δίνουν την καλύτερη σε παραδοσιακό αλλά ταυτόχρονα σε πολυτελή τρόπο. συνιστούμε σε όλους τους ταξιδιώτες που αναζητούν καλής ποιότητας και καταλύματα με καλή σχέση ποιότητας και τιμής.
 
14. " εξαιρετικό "
πολυ ομορφο ξενοδοχειο με φανταστικη θεα!!το service εξαιρετικο, τα δωματια πολυ καθαρα και προσεγμενα και το πρωινο παραδοσιακο ελληνικο!!! τα καλυτερα εχω να πω ομως και για τους ιδιοκτητες που σε κανουν να αισθανεσαι πολυ ανετα, σαν να εχεις βρει "καινουριους φιλους"!!θα το επισκευτουμε ξανα με την πρωτη ευκαιρια!!
 
15. " we love Astypalaia and tholaria boutique hotel "
tholaria boutique hotel is one of the best hotel that have ever been.
The location is the best because it is very close to the center and very close to the beach Livadi.
The owner Mr Mike Mariakis was very kind and wery professional.
The room service was perfect and th rooms always clean.
We think that we will be there the next summer.
 
16. "superb "
Πολύ ωραίο ξενοδοχείο,μες στην ηρεμία, με υπέροχους ιδιοκτήτες και καταπληκτικό πρωινο με χειρποιείτα strudel και κρουασάν... ενα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ.....
 
17. " πολύ καλό "
Εξαιρετικό ξενοδοχείο. Πολύ καλή τοποθεσία με φιλικό και εξυπηρετικό προσωπικό. Υπέροχη θέα και δωμάτια. Θα έκανα μόνο το πρωινο λιγο πιο ευρωπαικό. Πολύ κοντά στη χώρα. Γενικά έχουμε να πούμε μόνο τα καλυτερα!
 
18. " ένα από τα πιο ωραία ξενοδοχεία του νησιού "
Η διαμονή μας στο ξενοδοχείο ήταν υπέροχη!Τα δωμάτια όμορφα,καθαρά και προσεγμένα,η θέα φανταστική και οι ιδιοκτήτες φιλόξενοι και πρόθυμοι να μας βοηθήσουν όπως μπορούν.Η τοποθεσία του ξενοδοχείου είναι ιδανική,αφού βρίσκεται πολύ κοντά στη χώρα-5 λεπτά με τα πόδια-αλλά και αρκετά κοντά στην παραλία Λιβάδι.Οι τιμές του ξενοδοχείου είναι προσιτές και ανταποκρίνονται στις παροχές του.Είναι ίσως η καταλληλότερη επιλογή για διαμονή για ένα όμορφο και ήσυχο ταξίδι στην Αστυπάλαια!
 
19. " nice stay in Astypalaia, good hotel "
Had a wonderful time in Astypalia and at thoralia boutique hotel. I stayed in the cavo capuccio, which was very bright and well decorated. Its split (like a masionette, loft esque) with the main area, full equipped kitchen and seating downstairs, and then a small ladder takes you to the upper level where the bed is located -essentially the room looks exactly like the photos. The room is very large and comfortable and also includes a nice deck with views over looking the ocean and the Chora. I would not recommend this room if you are afraid of heights or older, as the ladder is quite small and a bit steep (as a 24 yr old i had to strategically attempt to walk down). Internet and wifi was not very good, which was very frustrating (the room only provided hookup connection, and wifi was pretty much non existent).
The pool is nice, a bit small, but perfect for a quick cool off. The breakfast is also very good and complete, lots to choose from and the options vary each day. The breakfast manager is also very passionate about the spread (which is sweet but a bit overbearing at times when your plate is consistently eyed and commented upon).
The location is also good, very close to the Chora, where you can go in the evening (about a 8 min walk) and then close to Livadi beach. However, Livadi beach is down a very large hill, so not the most pleasant walk at the end of the day when your wet and in the direct sun (and essentially drenched in sweat). Overall had a nice stay at Thoralia and the family run hotel is a great deal for the services offered.
This is my second time on Astypalaia, which is such a beautiful authentic island, will return again but will likely stay at Mouras Studios (self catering apartments at Livadi beach) purely for location/proximity to the beach and setting (lots more outdoor seating and space).
 
20. " un castellatto in un'isola pittoresca e suggestiva "
a settembre ho trascorso 10 giorni in questa piccola ed elegante struttura. Io e mio marito avevamo lo studios CAVO CAPUCCO:
bello su due piani arredato semplicemente ma in modo molto ricercato. Il letto era su un soppalco che si raggiungeva con una ripida ma carinissima scala in muratura.
Al primo piano c'era una bella sala soggiorno con angolo cottura che noi non abbiamo mai usato ( con le taverne greche ed il cibo greco cucinarsi a casa? e' pazzo chi lo fa)
un bel balconcino con tanto di ombrellone che dava vista sul castro e sul mare.L'unico appunto che posso fare e' che il bagno non e' a livello di tutto lo studios anzi...direi che non e' al livello di tutta la struttura del tholaria.
Piccolino con un lavandino minuscolo e una mensolina pochissimo capiente. Ecco secondo me dovrebbero abbellirlo un pochino, tanto per renderlo in sintonia con la bellezza della stanza.
L'albergo e' tipo un castelletto nel senso di scale e scalette da fare per raggiungere il proprio studios ma niente di scomodo e difficoltoso anzi...si fa una bella salitina in mezzo ad un giardino profumato colorato e curato.
C'e' anche una piccola piscina per di piu' panoramica ma anche qui come per il cucinarsi da soli vale il detto: pazzi chi lo fa.
Con il bel mare greco a disposizione e le tante calette che questa spettacolare isoletta vanta...rintanarsi in piscina?
boh....
Gli ambienti comuni sono belli e molto curati a cominciare dalla scalettina che si fa per raggiungere gli studios dove ad ogni angolo c'e' un oggettino ed un abbellimento ed ha una ringhiera fatta di corda molto originale da vedere.
La saletta colazione e' articolata in un ambientino al chiuso ma con finestre molto ampie e quindi molta luce con 3/4 tavolini ed un'altro ambientino verandato con 1 tavolino per 2 ed un'altro con una chaselongue...
piccole salette ma belle, arredate piacevolmente e con ricercatezza....vanno comunque bene perche' il tholiaria ha poche stanza.
C'e' poi il buffet creato in maniera originale e con molta delizia: poche cose ( per pochi ospiti) ma tutte succulenti..tutto fresco e buono. E' un'angolino molto chiccoso....
fuori c'e' anche il parcheggio per gli ospiti in modo da non doversi sbattere per sistemare la macchina.
Non posso dire che e' la struttura piu' bella dove ho alloggiato in grecia e sinceramente devo dire che per qualcosina in piu' ho trovato sistemazioni a mio parere piu' belle ma posso anche dire con certezza che non ho visto in tutta astipalea un posto migliore di questo dove alloggiare e quando alleghero' le foto capirete che cosa dico.
Subito prima c'era un altro albergo -pelaya credo si chiamasse - e so che costa decisamente di piu' del tholaria ( come tutte le altre strutture) ma non reggeva minimamente il paragone sia per la particolarita' che per l'eleganza.
Gli altri posti sono molto piu' dozzinali rispetto a questo bianco castelletto.
I proprietari sono poi veramente carini e simpatici e la signora della quale purtroppo non mi viene il nome , addetta alla colazione che e' anche la proprietaria e' veramente bella e solare sempre affabile sempre con il sorriso sulle labbra sempre solare.
Due parole su astipalea:
e' bella bella bella bella e...non occorre aggiungere altro.
E' proprio bella questa piccola isola:
bella come panorami- bella come isola- bella come mare- bella come calette- bella come taverne ( sinceramente ho mangiato meno bene rispetto ad altre isole greche)
E' un'isola che piu' di ogni altra ti fa sentire in pace con te stesso e con il mondo...lungo l'unica strada panoramica che si attraversa piu' volte al giorno, si vedono ad ogni angolo paesaggi suggestivi.....
solo la chora non mi ha entusiasmato molto anche perche' dopo aver visto quella di folegandros e di naxos credo sia difficile vederne di piu' belle..e mi e' dispiaciuto vedere i bellissimi mulini che caratterizzano quest'isola un po' trascurati e con le tegole rotte....ma forse li riaggiusteranno.
Insomma se andate ad astipalea andate al tholaria e scegliete quest'isola se volete trascorrere i vostri giorni in serenita' lontano dai problemi della nostra sventurata penisola e con l'intenzione di godere di un'isola veramente greca al 100%....
piu' di un mese e' trascorso dal mio rientro a roma e al mio lavoro ma l'immagine della deserta spiaggia di maltezana con quel mare luccicante dalle acque calme come un lago e con le lacrime agli occhi per essere costretta per l'ennesima volta a dover abbandonare il territorio greco....
in quel mattino della mia partenza, lunedi' 17 settembre.....
ancora mi balla davanti agli occhi.....
e la stessa immagine, nonostante diversi viaggi gia' programmati nel frattempo, mi fa fremere il cuore al pensiero che devo aspettare 7 mesi per rivedere quella terra adorata ( isola di kythira questa volta)... e chiedo a dio....
 
21. " sympa "
Studio agréablement décoré avec vue sur mer et piscine.Personnel charmant et efficace.
Petit bémol sur le petit déjeuner un peu faible pour ceux qui n'aiment pas les sucreries le matin. Critique hélas trop fréquente: comment diable dans un pays pareil ose-t-on servir des jus d'oranges industriels??
Gros bémol:l'accès à la mezzanine se fait par un échelle de meunier dangereuse et la station debout est impossible. Ne convient pas aux personnes âgées ou à ceux qui ont des problèmes de locomotion.Sinon c'est pour le moins folklorique....
 
22. " bellisimo posto "
Siamo stati in questa struttura una settimana a giugno 2012. La famiglia Mariakis ha mostrato una gentilezza fuori dal comune, facendoci sentire a casa L'hotel, non grande, è molto bello, ben arredato come se fosse una grande casa. Dista dieci minuti a piedi dalla piazza principale di Astypalea. La nostra stanza era proprio accanto alla piscina, molto grande con il letto su un soppalco e vista panoramica. Il livello di servizio nella stanza è molto alto, l'arredamento è curato senza scadere nel kitch, ci sono tutti i confort di un albergo a quattro stelle. La colazione è preparata personalmente dalla proprietaria con prodotti freschi (marmellate fatte in casa, brioche, torte, ecc.). Unico neo: il tempo per la preparazione, visto che viene servito un tavolo per volta. 
Complessivamente un posto da consigliare. Unico vero problema: le zanzare. Nonostante tutte le attenzioni prestate, l' ultima notte non siamo riusciti a dormire: ma è un problema di tutta l'isola.
 
23. " great holiday in Astypalaia "
Io e il mio compagno abbiamo soggiornato al Tholaria Boutique Hotel la seconda settimana di Giugno. L'ospitalità dei proprietari, così come quella di tutti gli abitanti dell'isola, ha fatto sì che trascorressimo una rilassante e piacevole vacanza. Abbiamo avuto la fortuna di soggiornare in una spaziosissima camera completa di cucina al piano principale della struttura, dalla quale abbiamo potuto godere di una splendida vista sulla Chora e sul mare. Consiglio a tutti questo hotel.
 
24. " pasqua ad astipalea " 

Vorrei segnalarvi questa stupenda isola e questo meraviglioso resort gestito in modo veramente speciale dalla famiglia MARIAKIS.
Sono ritornato in questo angolo di vera Grecia, in occasione della Pasqua ortodossa e anche questa volta nello stesso resort che mi ospito' nella passata estate. Un 'isola affascinante, suggestiva, tradizionale,vera,autentica come poche altre.
E se aggiungete a tutto questo la possibilita' di godervi la vacanza soggiornando nello splendido resort THOLARIA, allora non indugiate.. 
partite, paradisi cosi incontaminati non se ne trovano ancora tanti...
I Mariakis saranno i vostri angeli custodi e vi cattureranno il cuore.....

25. " petit nid d'amour "

nous avons passé 12 jours en juillet dernier dans un studio, qui est très agréable à vivre, avec une terrasse vue sur la mer. L'endroit est très calme, en haut du village ou le vent souffle toujours, ce qui rafraîchit l'atmosphère. Le studio est meublé avec goût et bénéficie d'une installation électrique hors pair ! Bref un endroit charmant que je recommande.

 
26. " una vacanza bellissima su un'isola e in una struttura stupende "
Astiplaea e' un 'isola stupenda , fuori dalle rotte del turismo di massa nonostante abbia un piccolo aereoporto che le permette i collegamenti ( uno al giorno ) con Atene.
Un 'isola ancora intatta con le sue usanze e tradizioni dove poter passare una vacanza indimenticabile senza affollamento!!!La Chora e' qualcosa di stupendo, una delle migliori di tutta la Grecia per il suo stato di conservazione.
Ed infine, ma non per importanza, il Tholaria, struttura bellissima, confortevole, con appartamenti e suite veramente di livello. e poi la sua magnifica posizione vista Egeo, e in parte con vista sulla Chora, la quale dista 5 m a piedi!! Semplicemente fantastico, tutto questo grazie all'ospitalita', gentilezza e cordialita' della famiglia Mariakis!! Unici e meravigliosi!! andateci!!!!!
 
27. " Hotel ad Astypalaia "
Hotel posizionato a 5 minuti a piedi dalla Chora. La famiglia Mariakis ha fatto di tutto per rendere il nostro soggiorno gradevole e spensierato. Camere confortevoli ed arredate in stile isolano. Pulite e complete di tutto il necessario. Colazione con torte e dolci sfornati ogni mattina. Ci torniamo...
 
28. " ονειρεμένος τόπος,μαγικές διακοπές,υπέροχοι άνθρωποι "
Μείναμε στο ξενοδοχειο, τον σεπτεμβριο του 2013. Στη σουιτα "Aegean suite". Το δωμάτιο ξεπέρασε τις προσδοκίες μας. Πραγματικός παράδεισος: μοναδικη θέα, ιδανική τοποθεσία για εξορμήσεις στο νησι, φοβερή αίσθηση ιδιωτικότητας, προσεγμένο ντεκόρ, πολυτέλεια που δεν κραυγάζει, άψογη εξυπηρέτηση σε επίπεδο καθαριότητας.

Εκπληκτική τοποθεσία , ,πεντακάθαρα δωμάτια , πλούσιο πρωινό .Ξενοδοχείο ιδιαίτερο και με προσωπικό στυλ αλλά και πολύ ζεστό. Μεράκι και φινέτσα σχεδόν σε οτιδήποτε το απαρτίζει.Αλλά το σημαντικότερο από όλα η οικογένεια Μαριάκη. Ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ στον καθένα ξεχωριστά. Κύριε Γιάννη ,κυρία Λίτσα ,Ατζελίνα , Μιχάλη εύχομαι να είστε παντα γεροί και δυνατοί. Θα ξαναέρθουμε σίγουρα!!!
 
31. " υπέροχα "
Τα πολλά λόγια είναι φτώχια, αυτό που μετράει είναι, ότι απο την άρχη μέχρι το τέλος πέρασαμε υπέροχα. Μείναμε 7 νύχτες το Σεπτέμβριο και όλα συνέβαλαν θετικά να περάσουμε υπέροχα. Μας βοήθησαν επίσης να νοικιάσουμε ένα πολύ συμφερτικό αυτοκίνητο με το οποίο οργώσαμε το νησί!
 
32. " 02-07 ΣΕΠΤΕΜΒΡΙΟΥ 2013 "
Εξαιρετικό περιβάλλον και άψογη συμπεριφορά των ιδιοκτητών.Πολύ βολική τοποθεσία κοντά στην χώρα και με απίστευτη θέα.Ο κύριος Γιάννης με την γυναίκα του Λίτσα και το σπιτικό τους πρωινό γρήγορα μας έκαναν να αισθανόμαστε κομμάτι της οικογένειας και όχι πελάτες τους.Ευχαριστούμε πολύ!!Ο γιος τους Μιχάλης πάντα πρόθυμος και χαμογελαστός να μας βοηθήσει σε ότι του ζητήσαμε.Το δωμάτιο πολύ ζεστό νιώθαμε ότι είναι δικό μας, το τζακούζι στο μπαλκόνι ξεχωριστό και η πισίνα ικανοποιητική.Όταν έμαθαν ότι είμασταν νιόπαντροι μας περίμενε στο δωμάτιο μαι ευχάριστη έκπληξη... λουλούδια και μια σαμπάνια!!Μπράβο σας και συνεχίστε την καλή δουλειά.Μακάρι να σας μιμηθούν και άλλοι συνάδερφοι γιατί σπανίζει πλέον να βλέπεις καθαρούς ανθρώπους.Για το νησί τι να πούμε... όμορφες παραλίες σχετικά εύκολα προσβάσιμες με αυτοκίνητο και πολύ καλό και φτηνό φαγητό.Σας το συνιστούμε ανεπιφύλακτα!!! Γιάννης- Έφη
 
33. " εμπειρία Αστυπάλαιας "
Από τα πιο όμορφα, εμπνευσμένα, ήσυχα ξενοδοχεία για διακοπές. Υπέροχο σπιτικό πρωινό, στραπατσάδα και κρουασανάκια highlight, μοναδική θέα, φιλικοί και εξυπηρετικοί ιδιοκτήτες!! Το συστήνουμε ανεπιφύλακτα και αν μπορέσουμε θα ξαναπάμε!
 
34. " επιστροφή στην Αστυπάλαια "
Μετά από πολλά χρόνια, επισκεφθήκαμε ξανά την Αστυπάλαια. Και δεν θα μπορούσαμε να το κάνουμε με καλύτερο τρόπο από το να μείνουμε στο ξενοδοχείο "Θολάρια". Η τοποθεσία, το δωμάτιο ("Αιγαίο"), οι χώροι, η διακόσμηση, η εξυπηρέτηση, το πρωϊνό (σπιτικό με ελληνική προσέγγιση) ήταν όλα εξαιρετικά. Οι άνθρωποι που "τρέχουν" το ξενοδοχείο είναι επαγγελματίες και ταυτόχρονα φιλικότατοι, με διάθεση να βοηθήσουν σε όποια ανάγκη του επισκέπτη. Ο Γιάννης έχει κι ένα κρυφό ταλέντο που το εκθέτει δεξιά από την είσοδο του ξενοδοχείου - αξίζει να ρίξετε μια ματιά και εκεί!
 
35. " υπέροχο ξενοδοχείο "
Το Tholaria Boutique hotel είναι ένα υπέροχο ξενοδοχείο σε ενα πολύ ωραιο νησι. Βρίσκεται σε ιδανική τοποθεσία κοντα στη Χωρα αλλά και στο Λιβάδι , εχει καταπληκτική θέα , άνετα και καλόγουστα δωμάτια και άψογα διακοσμημένους χώρους .Οι ιδιοκτήτες είναι φιλόξενοι και ευγενέστατοι, πρόθυμοι να σε εξυπηρετήσουν και να δώσουν οποιαδήποτε πληροφορία για το νησί και ότι άλλο ζητήσει κανείς...Η καθαριότητα είναι καθημερινή και σε συνδιασμό με τους τρεις ιδιοκτήτες (κ. Γιάννης, κ. Λίτσα και Μιχάλης) σε κάνουν να νιώθεις οικειότητα, νιώθεις οτι φιλοξενείσαι και όχι οτι διαμένεις σε κάποιο ξενοδοχείο. Το πρωινό δε από τα χέρια της κυρίας Λίτσας είναι απλά τέλειο!!! Γενικά οτι και να πει κανείς είναι λίγο..
 
36. " τέλεια φιλοξενεία "
Μείναμε στο ξενοδοχείο αυτό 8 νύχτες. Όλα ήταν τέλεια, το δωμάτιο ήταν καθαρό με υπέροχη αισθητική και διακόσμηση. Η θέα του δωματίου σε κρατούσε στο μπαλκόνι για ώρες με θεά το κάστρο και την θάλασσα. 
Το πρωινό ήταν επίσης πολύ καλό με φρέσκα πράγματα κάθε μέρα. 
Πάνω απ'όλα εκτιμήσαμε την καθοδήγηση και τις συμβουλές για τις παραλίες και τις επιλογές που είχαμε αφού δεν είχαμε ξαναπάει στο νησί.
Η φιλοξενεία της οικογένειας Μαριάκη ήταν το δυνατότερο σημείο του ξενοδοχείου.
 
37. " ονειρεμένο ταξίδι μέλιτος "
Έχουμε τις καλύτερες αναμνήσεις από το ταξίδι μας στην Αστυπάλαια και συγκεκριμένα η διαμονή μας στη σουίτα Αιγαίο ήταν ονειρεμένη!

42. " μια απόλαυση "
Η σύζυγός μου και εγώ θα έχουμε πάντα τις καλλίτερες αναμνήσεις από την δεκαήμερη παραμονή μας στο τέλος Ιουνίου του 2012 , στο ξενοδοχείο Tholaria Boutique Hotel. 
Οι χώροι, τα δωμάτια η θέα αλλά πρωτίστως η εξαιρετικά ζεστή συμπεριφορά των ανθρώπων, της οικογένειας Μαριάκη, μας έκαναν να αισθανθούμε απόλυτα οικεία στον χώρο και να βιώσουμε την τέλεια χαλάρωση. 
 
43. " απολαυστικές διακοπές "
Επισκευτίκαμε το νησί τον Άυγουστο, και μείναμε σε αυτό το ζεστό και φίλοξενο ξενόδοχειο όπου μας υποδέχτηκαν η κ.Λίτσα με την οικογενειά της. Πέρασαμε τέλεια ,το Δωμάτιο όμορφο, άνετο με υπέροχη θέα. Το πρωινό πάρα πού καλό και πλουσίο.Είναι σε καλή τοποθεσία καθώς υπάρχει ηρεμία και είναι πάρα πολύ κοντά στο κέντρο. Για την Αστυπάλαια μόνο καλά λόγια έχουμε... Ολα δένουν αρμονικά μεταξύ τους! Υπέροχος κόσμος , υπέροχες θάλασσες!!!
Ελπίζουμε να ξανά πάμε σύντομα!
 
44. " μαγικές διακοπές "
Το Tholaria Boutique Hotel είναι χτισμένο στο ιδανικότερο σημείο του νησιού, γιατί έχεις θέα την χώρα της Αστυπάλαιας και ταυτόχρονα δεν χρειάζεσαι αυτοκίνητο για να πας στη χώρα. Διαθέτει όλες τις ανέσεις, είναι πολύ προσεκτικά φτιαγμένο με γούστο, αγάπη και κόπο από τους ιδιοκτήτες. Οι ιδιοκτήτες είναι μια εξαιρετική οικογένεια που χαίρεσαι να μιλάς μαζί τους και σε κάνουν να νιώθεις σπίτι σου. Οι τιμές προσιτές και σίγουρα αισθάνεσαι ότι τα χρήματα που δίνεις σου παρέχουν περισσότερα από αυτά που είχες σκεφτεί.Εμείς μείναμε με τα παιδιά μας για 15 ημέρες επί 2 συνεχείς χρονιές και περάσαμε αξέχαστα. Ακόμα και σήμερα όλοι θυμόμαστε την διαμονή μας στην Αστυπάλαια και σύντομα θα ξαναπάμε..... Εάν η Ελλάδα δεν είχε τόσα νησιά, σίγουρα θα ήταν κάθε χρόνο η πρώτη επιλογή μας. Η Αστυπάλαια συνδυάζει γραφικότητα, ωραίες παραλίες, καλό φαγητό (εξαιρετικά ψάρια) και νομίζω ότι ίσως είναι το ωραιότερο από τα Δωδεκάννησα. Είμαι σίγουρη ότι την εποχή που διανύουμε όπου θα επιβιώσουν μόνο οι καλύτεροι, το ξενοδοχείο Tholaria θα συνεχίσει να υπάρχει και να μας περιμένει για αξέχαστες διακοπές........
 
45. " ειδυλλιακό boutique hotel "
Mείναμε στο ξενοδοχείο Tholaria την πρώτη εβδομάδα του Σεπτέμβρη και συγκεκριμένα στην σουίτα ΑΙΓΑΙΟ.Η διακόσμηση είναι άψογα συνδιασμένη με το εκπληκτικό φυσικό τοπίο που σε εντάσσει με απόλυτη αρμονία στο χώρο και ξεκουράζει τις αισθήσεις σου.Η άψογη συμπεριφορά της κ. Λίτσας ιδιοκτήτριας του ξενοδοχείου που είναι πραγματικά ένας υπέροχος άνθρωπος σε συνδιασμό με το τέλειο χειροποίητο πρωινό της που είναι άξιο συνχαρητηρίων σε κάνουν να νιώθεις πως είσαι φιλοξενούμενος.........
Ευχαριστούμε πολύ για όλα !!!!!!!!!!!!
Θα σας επισκεφτούμε πάλι τον Αύγουστο του 2014
 
46. " άψογη φιλοξενία "
Επισκεφθήκαμε την Αστυπάλαια φέτος τον Ιούλιο και περάσαμε αξέχαστα! Πάρα πολύ ωραίο νησί με ζεστούς και φιλόξενους ανθρώπους. Για το Tholaria Boutique Hotel έχουμε να πούμε μόνο τα καλύτερα. Τέλεια δωμάτια πολύ ωραία διακοσμημένα, πολύ ωραίο χειροποίητο πρωινό, ζεστή ατμόσφαιρα που ξεφεύγει από το πρότυπο του απρόσωπου ξενοδοχείου και πάνω απ'όλα άψογη φιλοξενία από τους ιδιοκτήτες που έκαναν ό,τι μπορούσαν για να αισθανθούμε σα στο σπίτι μας. Ευχαριστούμε πολύ το σκεφτόμαστε πολύ σοβαρά να ξανάρθουμε το Πάσχα!
 
47. " το συστήνω ανεπιφύλακτα "
Ταξιδέψαμε το περασμένο καλοκαίρι στην πανεμορφη Αστυπάλαια και περάσαμε υπέροχα.Το ξενοδοχείο Tholaria Boutique Hotel έκανε τη διαμονή μας ονειρεμένη!Βρίσκεται σε πολύ καλή τοποθεσία, πανέμορφο και πολύ προσεγμένο.Συνδυάζει τη ζεστή, παραδοσιακή ατμόσφαιρα με συγχρονες, υψηλού επιπέδου ανέσεις.Το δωμάτιό μας ήταν διακοσμημένο με πολύ γούστο, φωτεινό, δροσερό με υπέροχη θέα στη θάλασσα.Το κρεβάτι πολύ άνετο και το μπάνιο μοντέρνο και πεντακάθαρο.Από άποψη καθαριότητας παίρνει άριστα.Η εξυπηρέτηση ήταν επίσης άψογη, οι ιδιοκτήτες πολύ φιλικοί, ευγενικοί και πρόσχαροι.Το πρωινό ήταν εξαιρετικό και με σπιτική φροντίδα (απίθανα χειροποίητα strudel και κρουασάν).Η νησιώτικη ατμόσφαιρα και η αίσθηση πολυτέλειας μας κέρδισαν αμέσως.Ότι και να πω είναι λίγο.Οι τιμές πολύ λογικές.Μείναμε απόλυτα ικανοποιημένοι και σίγουρα θα το επιλέξουμε πάλι για το επόμενο ταξίδι μας στην Αστυπάλαια.
 
48. " η καλύτερη φιλοξενεία στο πιο τέλειο νησί "
Το καλοκαίρι που μας πέρασε επισκεφθήκαμε για πρώτη φορά το νησί και περάσαμε τέλεια. Ωραίοι άνθρωποι, πανέμορφο νησί. Το γεγονός αυτό μας έκανε να έρθουμε και πάλι στο νησί για τις ημέρες του Πάσχα και μετά απο μικρή έρευνα, κλείσαμε δωμάτιο στο ξενοδοχείο Tholaria Boutique Hotel. Δικαιωθήκαμε απόλυτα και ενα μεγάλο μπράβο στους ιδιοκτήτες καθώς στα τόσα χρόνια που πηγαίνουμε διακοπές, είναι η πρώτη φορά που αυτό που είδαμε στο site ήταν ακριβώς αυτό που βρήκαμε, με την διαφορά ότι η ζεστασιά και η φιλοξενία των ιδιοκτητών ήταν κάτι πρωτόγνωρο και φυσικά κάτι μας σκλάβωσε και άφησε με μια αίσθηση γλυκιάς προσμονής για την επόμενη διαμονή μας. ΄Αριστα!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
49. " υπέροχη φιλοξενεία "

Σας το συστηνουνε ανεπιφυλα κτα.
 
53. " classic island.get away " 
Perfect clifftop location with views of the town and an almost caldera like sea view. All rooms are individual in decor and layout
The Mariakis family have gone to great lengths to provide guests with a unique experience with the design and layout of each apartment.
Breakfast is served in the bright and airy room next to the reception area. The traditional home made Greek breakfast is excellent. 
We booked for three nights and stayed for six which says it all.
Next time we visit Astypalia we shall definitely be staying here.
 
54. "better than the website "
Stayed here in June 2013, for the money paid this hotel offers exceptional value. The views are absolutely stunning from every bedroom. The service levels with complimentary transfers far exceeded expectation. The attention to detail throughout the hotel is wonderful and the breakfasts are pretty good too. I know that Mike and his family are very proud of their hotel as they rightly should be. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
 
55. " my best room  "
What can I say for this hotel.We have been in Astypalaia island for some days in June and of course we stayed in Tholaria Boutique Hotel. Our room was fantastic with sea view. The owners were very very friendly and the helped us for all.
Also, the breakfast was fantastic.
 
56. " most beautiful & romantic place "
I went for one week for my honeymoon and had the best time. The family is so lovely and helped us with everything, they picked us up at the port, brought us to the car rental guy and gave us tips which beaches to go to.
The breakfast is delicious and super fresh, The marmalade is self made from the father of the family. The Hotel is clean and the rooms are as beautiful as on their website.
I suggest to take the aigeo suite with a private jacuzzi and an amazing view.
We just loved it there and suggest everybody to go to Tholaria when going to Astypalaia- I don't think that you will find a better place to stay!
 
57. " authentic & professional "
Fantastic location, only a few minutes walk from the centre of the village and one of the beautiful beaches of the island.Very friendly and helpful staff!!! Home made breakfast, spacious and clean rooms. 
A very good reason to return to an already thrilling island.!
 
58. " excellent "
Excellent hotel, excellent owners, very helpfull, very friendly it is a hotel where you feel like home but with the service of a very good hotel. You have personal service from the owners ( Mrs Litsa, her son Michalis and the whole family, even the small dog named Belene was fantastic. The breaksfast is home made and it deserves the award for the best greek traditional breakfast. We enjoyed the location, the view and the rooms, quite spacious and with all comfort. We travel a lot and we have been in many luxury hotels around the world. I beleive that Tholaria boutique hotels represents what the island of Astypalaia offers to the visitors: simplicity together with quality. I think that nowdays hotel owners should follow more than ever Tholaria's hospitality philosophy. Give the best in traditional but at the same time in luxurious way. We recommend to all travellers who are looking for good quality and value for money accommodation.
 
59. " very nice and relaxing saty "
Great hospitality and quality of accommodation and staff. We appreciated in particular the home-made breakfast, the well-decorated rooms, the friendly atmosphere and the kindness of all staff members. We’ve not found anything comparable in our stay in the other islands. We hope to be able to come back one day, but we will definitely advertise and recommend your hotel to friends. We stayed there 6 nights with our 3 kids and we all enjoyed our stay. The view is great, it's close to Chora and Livadi Beach.
 
60. " great value for money "
Great location, nice view, homemade breakfast with good selection of coffees. Breakfast was served till 11:00. Very clean rooms. All people working in the hotel where very friendly and helpful. Great value for money.
 
61. " a beautiful place to stay "
We spent 9 days at the Tholaria and we simply think this is the best place to stay in Astypalaia. It was perfect. It is a beautiful property with great location - outside town so nice and quiet but only a 10 min walk into the centre . We had a family suite which for 4, gave us plenty of space . It was very clean and had everything we needed, including a balcony with spectacular Chora view! It's also the people, the staff, that makes this place perfect. There is only a small group of staff so you get to know them well during your stay. We've never been so well taken care of. The location, the staff, the facilities and the breakfast were all wonderful. I truly recommend this hotel, and hope to come back there soon!! Panagiotis, Nassia, Lyberia, Alex
 
62. " fabulous "
I can only confirm the opinion of most reviewers. The family who run this hotel are very friendly and helpful, from the pickup at the airport to the early morning delivery to the port. Location and views are fantastic. The rooms in the hotel are the best I have seen in Greece. Would recommend this place to anyone.
 
63. " friendly accommodation "
For the first time we understood that Tholaria Boutique Hotel would be the best choice for our vacations.
Mr Mariakis was there for any questions at any time. As about the room, always it was clean and the staf was very friendly.
Mrs Litsa , the breakfast manager , she offers us every morning the best greek traditional breakfast. 
we think that it is a very good choice for your vacations.
 
64. " comfort and nice hotel "
the hotel has very friendly staff, big rooms and clean.
Also the locstion is very good as is near to the central square.
Our room nwas very big and it has wonderful sea view.
we hope to be there in the near future.
Stam Joud
 
65. " see you soon "
the best vacation that we ever had.The hotel was perfect.Also the island was very nice.
We stayed in Family suite Asvestoti.The room was very nice and huge.Everything were clean and the breakfast was delicious.
We will come back
We also stayed three days in Mariakis luxury Studios because there was not availability for all the period.
 
66. " the best experience "
The hotel was really amazing and in the best location of Astypalaia. The prices are very good. The service was excellent, very polite and always willing to meet all customer requirements. The suite was always very clean. Modern decor without losing traditional architectural elements.
 
67. " a beautiful and quiet place to rest "
It was our first time in Astypalaia island and we stay for 5 days. Tholaria was our first choice for two reasons, the great reviews and the selection of photographs of the website. The stuff was very friendly and polite and willing to help you. The handmade breakfast was great with a variety of choices for every taste.The rooms were quite and private and they are ideally for couples. Our room was full equipped with a/c, satellite tv (nova) , dvd player, internet access (LAN cable), refrigerator, coffee machine, boiler, mixer, roaster, kitchenette etc. It was also a very spacious room with great view. It was one of the best room we have ever stayed.
 
68. " a wonderful hideaway "
We enjoyed unforgettable holidays in this wonderful hotel. The staff is extremely kind. If you are looking for absolutely relaxing holidays in a comfortable hotel perfectly located then you have to visit Tholaria. The island itself is a pure greek dream. We will come back for sure.
 
69. " δεν υπάρχει - Does not exist "
"Does not exist" is a phrase we use in Greece to describe something very nice, astonishing, out of the ordinary.
We discovered the hotel online by accident, back in 2008 when we were looking for a honeymoon destination. Stayed at Aegeo suite, and since then we go as often as we can, always for the specific room. 
Placed at a stunning location, very clean, friendly atmosphere and a lovely island.
I consider it is a bit expensive though, however since I still choose to go there, means that it is worth it.
 
70. " just the best ever " 

Lets start talking abou astypalaia island. Me and my wife we thing that Astypalaia is one othe best island in Greece. Its very clear, very quite ( and very nice nightlife) , high quality services and very good and cheep food.
As about our second home. This is the title that Tholaria boutique hotel wan after our stay in this summer.
Tholaria boutique Hotel combine the high quality services with very personal relationships with the owners. The staff was very king and always available for us. The room that we stayed was very nice, nice decoration , big bathroom and very very clean.From our balcony we have fantastic sea view . Last bu not least the breakfast was fully handmade and fresh. We thing it get also a certification << Greek Breakfast>>. an other certificahation that we show an the main area of reception was that : It is the winner for 2012 and 2013 in tripadvisor. 
Closing , the owners, Mike , Litsa nad Giannis are the best hotelier that we have evere meet. They are very king , they make us fell like our home and always care about us .
Only one think it is sure : WE WILL COME BACK AGAIN . Mariakis Family , take care about << our >> home.

71. " best greek hotel ever "
We have visited many countries and have been to the Greek islands many times. We have had some good hotels and some not so good hotels. This hotel is one of the best (if not the best) we have ever been to. From the pick-up at the port (where Mike had to wait two hours till 5 a.m. due to the late arrival of the ferry), to an excellent breakfast (too much food), a great room, beautiful view of the sea and great view of the castle, everything was perfect. Housekeeping was excellent and hospitality great. One of the best experiences of the Greek islands ever.
If ever in Astypalea, this is THE place to be.
 
72. " perfect accommodation in Astypalaia "
Perfect location,perfect people,perfect atmosphere.Luxury in reasonable prices.Fabulous decoration in all areas of the hotel,reception and rooms as well,cozy feeling,a very warm welcome from the owners mr Giannis and Kondylia who make you feel like home and give you the answers for all your questions before you ask.Staff of the hotel very kind and effective as welll.Homemade breakfast that surprises you positevely each day.Delicious marmelades from mr Giannis hands and very tasteful pies from Kondylias hands,good ingredients in everything.Transportation free from and to the airport or the port.Mr Giannis and Kondylia thank you so much for a memorable stay in Astypalaia and wish you the very best for your wonderful place.
 
73. " majestic view....beautiful people "
Spent 3 days in Tholaria...spacious room with a small jacuzzi...art decorations from owners hands...simply perfect...just like breakfast with every day sweet and salty staff cooked by owners wife...delicious!!!! Be there John plus Jo
 
74. " the perfect hotel to live for ever "
This May I had the chance to stay for 17 days at this hotel and I can say that by the end of the period, I had already made it my home. It is not only the comfortable rooms (some of which are studios or small apartments like the maisonette I stayed in) but the incredibly helpful owners and staff. We had the feeling that little elfs kept coming into our rooms and fulfiled all our wishes! All rooms had excellent view to the beach and some had the option of a spa or a jacuzzi or both. Our maid, Gerdre, was the angel who made our days unforgettable and the couple of Litsa and John did whatever they could to make us feel at home. The hotel is a bit out of the main square of Chora but the distance is really less than 10 minutes on foot. The breakfast offered was made by the owners who are really talented (don't miss John'w workshop and gallery which is full of his craftwork his is very modest to boast about!!). It really worths every penny you spend there.
 
75. " family run extremely friendly staff "
First time on the island and this hotel for Greek Orthodox Easter 2013. The welcome by the Mariakis family who owns this hotel was unbelievable. From picking us up at the airport, having arranged for car rental, providing us swimming towels and the soooo tasty lunch and dinners we had at the hotel at no extra charge! There was a personal attention to everything and you could ask for whatever you wanted at whatever time (not to mention the incredible home made breakfast). I had a problem the second day of our stay with the hot water due to a slight malfunction and it was fixed within 15 minutes even though it was Easter evening!
I have rarely experienced this hospitality even though I've stayed in numerous places around the world and, although I rarely visit a place (not to mention a hotel!) for a second time while on a vacation, I promise to certainly visit this one again as soon as possible. A huge thank you once again to Cpt Yiannis (Koursaros!), Litsa and Michael for making this an unforgettable holiday. Miss you but we will come and see you soon!
 
76. " relaxing and good quality "
Beautiful location, just outside Chora, with commanding views of the sea and the castle.
We stayed in suite with living room/kitchen, 2 bedrooms, shower/WC and large balcony. Kitchen fully equipped for self-catering if you want to (although we didn't). Overall suite was well=appointed and clean. Plenty of hot water.
Owners were delightful and attentive; always helpful - rather like staying with friends.
Breakfast was plentiful and enjoyable - yoghurt, toasted sandwiches, bread, meat, cheese, cake, juice etc.
If staying a few days its worth hiring a car as the hill from the port to the Chora is steep and long. And a car makes it much easier to see more of the island. Visiting in April allowed us to drive to remoter parts and then walk. We hired from Manolis Lakis on the quay, and were well pleased. 
Arriving, we flew from Kos (via Kalymnos and Leros, all in an hour and a half), but left on a ferry to Kalymnos. Be warned that the ticket agent who sells tickets for the Nissos Kalmnos only opens for an hour or so before the boat arrives. We were told that tickets were sold 'in front of the boat' immediately prior to departure, but didn't test this. On the day we left the Nissos Kalymnos travelled very slowly and took 4 hours to reach Kalymnos.
 
77. " fanatastic room and sea view "
we stayed in tholaria hotel only for 2 days but it was enough for feelling the greek traditional hospitality.the owners were very friendly, the location very good and the view amazing.
the room was big and very nice.be there for sure
 
78. " we will never forget you "
Prior to staying in Tholaria Boutique Hotel we had read all the good reviews. We were still very surprised about the hospitality of the owners. Even though we switched rooms many times, Mike and the staff of hotel, had made the transition so smooth it almost felt exciting that we were changing rooms, they also made our engagement very special. Thank you so much for a great time, we can't wait until we could go back!
Astypalaia is one of then best Islands in Greece.
 
79. " a deram "
We spent 8 days at the Asvestoti apartment and we would have spent 5 more days if available! A spectacular apartment, extremely clean, elegant and very comfortable, with a lot of curious details. Furnished with great taste with an unforgettable terrace and view! We are very picky and demanding, the only unrealized wish was to have a big shower raher than a shower in the bathtub. We loved also the common spaces, although small they offered privacy and exclusivity. What amazed us is also how the owners care about their guests, always ready to help and accomodate any requests. Precious breakfasts are prepared by hand, very healthy and tasteful, although the space where are served is small, but that allows to share experiences with the other guests and/or talk a bit with the owners in a very friendly way.
 
80. " wanderful hotel "
A bit late getting around to writing my review, but just a few lines to describe a wonderful stay. Without doubt, the room we stayed in was the most beautiful i've ever had over many, many years of Greek Island holidays. The Mariakis family ended up feeling like my own, we felt so welcome. Mike even happily ran me to the local hospital and arranged treatment when I suffered a painful ear infection during my stay. This was really appreciated as I knew just how busy he was 24/7. A beautiful luxury hotel on a lovely island off the beaten track. If rest and relaxation is on your agenda I thoroughly recommend the Tholoria.
 
81. " very good and very friendly "
We enjoyed the Tholaria. Our room (Psili Viglia with two floors) was nice and comfortable, the bed is good, the view is good, we were happy about the two bathrooms, the cleaning lady did an excellent job, the pool is good, the whole setting of the hotel is very nice, and the Mariakis family was very helpful with everything (organizing cars, tickets, ...). We appreciated this a lot. The only thing to improve would be, according to us, a breakfast with fresh fruits instead of canned fruits. Melons, figues - what ever. I think there is plenty of it on the island, and it would give the whole breakfast a different taste. A taste of freshness and quality.
 
82. " the defition of hospitality .... "
This is a wonderful boutique hotel I stayed in for a week. I have visited many hotels of this type in Greece and abroad. It is beautiful and comfortable. But the 2 most special features is 1) the AMAZING hospitality of the family that runs it. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Just wonderful hosts!! 2) The hand-made, rich, traditional breakfast made by the hosts..
 
83. " enchanting place on a laid back island "
This is a beautifully decorated hotel with amazing rooms nicer than any I have stayed in. the rooms are large with comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen. the interior of the hotel including every charming detail of the room has been hand-made. The balcony overlooks the sea and has a spectacular view. It's in a great location a short distance between the town and Livadi beach. Mike and his family were friendly and go out of their way to help you.
 
84. " magnificent place , lovely people "
Tholaria and Astipalaia are a great choice for peaceful and amazing vacation. The hotel owners, Mariakis family, are friendly and willing to help at all times. The island has beautiful beaches, great food and nice bars.We would recomment it for sure!
Vasilis and Anastasia
 
85. " a good as it gets "
Tholaria is a small collection of buildings and studios half way between the Chora/Castro and the beach/Lavadi. Great location. Six minutes to either. Mike and his parents have created a home for travelers. The studios feel like places you could live forever. The rooms all look over the sea as well as to the beautiful 14th Centrury Castle. Friendly and kind folks who work very hard to make and keep you happy. Great spot!!!
 
86. " a realy lovely place "
The room was fantastic on two floors with two bathrooms and tasteful decoration. The showers were great and spacious. Having the stunning view of the castle and sea every morning from the balcony couldn't have been better. The owners were really friendly, helpful and generous to us during our stay. In fact everyone in Astypalea was friendly and really wanted us to like the island, which we did very much. Having visited many Greek islands I would put Astypalea in my top 5. This is a great place to stay on a really lovely island.
 
87. " magnificent view "
The magnificent view to the castle and the aegean blue water
bring you calmness...
The comfotrable rooms with their traditional decoration
make you relax...
The people with their warm and friendly behaviour
make you feel like family...
The Tholaria Boutique Hotel is the perfect place for all who want to sense
the unique beauty of Astypalea!!!!!
 
88. " sunny memories from the sunniest Hotel in Greece "
Visiting Greece was my old dream so choosing the right hotel was an important task. Luckily, I chose this amazing hotel which lived up to all of my expectations- beautiful location, delicious food, hospitable owners, neat and bright rooms and scenery that I will never forget. I spent there four days but I most certainly will pay another visit as soon as my work schedule will allow it.:)
 
89. " this is a perfect hotel "
we arrive at the port of astypale at midnight and the staf of the hotel was there for pick us to the hotel.From the first moment we undertood that it was a very very good hotel.Mr Mike ( the owner ) he was very kind.When we arrive in the hotel Mrs Litsa was there to offer us a drink or sth and they help us with our laggages.On the next morning we took our breakfast on the balcony of our suite.The breakfast was fully handmade and very rich.
The suite it was perfect and exactly the same as the the images in website.
Mr John is the big big boss of the hotel.He gave us all the informations about beaches,car rental, resaturants,bars,clubs and shops.Generaly our saty was perfect and we hope to be there as soon as possible.
Finaly, they help us with the ticketing.
 
90. " summer holidays "
First of all, astypalea is one of the best island that we have ever been to.
I would likie to write some good words about Tholaria Hotel.We stayed in Tholaria hotel for 5 days and was perfect.We had daily cleaning,we had the posiibility of taking our breakfast in the room.The breakfast was handmade by Mrs Litsa.
Aslo, the staf was very very friendly and the did the best for us.
we stay in Imerovigli suite.According in my opinio was the best suite.
Only the best for this hotel.
 
91. " excelent stay "
We are going every year for holidays in differernts islands in Greece.
The last summer we went to Astypalaia and then to Santorini.
In Astypalaia we stayed in Tholaria.Its a very nice boutique hotel with excellent services.
The studios that we stayed was very comfortable,with very good design.
The staff was very kindly and the room was always fresh and clean.
From our studio we have sea view and also view to the castle. The point in this hotel was the handmade breakfast with local products.
Its sure that we will try to go again.
 
92. " special accommodation "
Last summer we visit Astypalaia and we stay to Tholaria boutique hotel!We stay for 5 days in a special suite!!The owners are friendly and they lelp us to everything we want.They give us a lot of information for the wonderful island!Also the breakfast was very rich an there was a perfect terrace you can sit and take it!

93. " fantastic hotel "
We went to Astypalaia on 15th of July in 2011 and we stayied at Tholaria Boutique Hotel.The hotel was fantastic and very clean. We stayied in a very comfortable studio with wanderfull sea view.Also, the breakfast was hand made and very rich.Finaly the owner of the hotel was trying to do the best for us and they were very friendly and kindly.

95. " perfect rest "
We had a perfect rest at this luxurious hotel sparkling with cleanliness and cosiness where the hosts meet every guest at their closest friend. I'd love to spend my holidays here again and again!
 
 
96. " a gem on a lovely Mediterranean island "We spent the first week of October at the Tholaria Boutique hotel and we had a wonderful time. We were a bit concerned about the time of the year we chose to go to Astypalaia, but the weather was fantastic, everyday it reached at least 26-28 degrees. We heard the wind could be very strong and unpleasant during the summer months, but when we were there there was only a slight breeze which was very pleasant because it made the hottest hours of the day bearable and only on the first day the Meltemi wind was blowing strong. As it was low season the hotel and the island in general were very quiet which was perfect for us, as we wanted a very quiet and relaxing holiday - not many tourists, no screaming kids, no noises. Every day we went to a different beach, and most of the times we were the only ones there!! It was fantastic. We spend hours snorkling in the crystal clear water - there are LOTS of fish in there. I definitely recommend going to Astypalaia out of season. The island and town itself are small and I do not offer much in terms of sightseeing - the seas and the beaches are the main attraction! The village of Chora is very small but beautiful and picturesque. The hotel was something truly special. We fell in love with it the moment we arrived. It is decorated very tastefully throughout. We stayed in the Algeo suite. This is a good sized double room, which we later realised it was probably one of the smallest rooms in the hotel - but I think the view from our room terrace was incredible! Because it is located at the far end of the hotel you get the best view of the bay on one side of the hotel and of Chora, the village right opposite the hotel. It was so wonderful waking up in the morning, opening the wood shutters and facing such a lovely view! The terrace has a spacious Jacuzzi - the water is not heated, which at first I didn't like - but when I later realised how hot the weather gets during the day, I was actually very thankful it wasn't heated! We spent hours in the Jacuzzi, just watching the view and sipping aperitifs :-) There was a small kitchen, a flat screen telly, satellite tv and the bathroom had a shower with jacuzzi. There is also air con, which we never used! We were the only guests in the hotel so we had the whole place to ourselves. Litsa, her husband Iannis, and their dog Bellen were extremely welcoming. Litsa came to pick us up at the airport when we arrived, which we thought it was very nice. In the morning we would have breakfast on the terrace in the main building and she would give us some really good advise on where to go, what to see and particularly which beaches to go to. Everytime she was spot on! She helped us hire a car and a boat. The breakfast was simple and healthy - fruit salads, croissants, cakes, cereals and strudel... Litsa even bakes her own biscuits. There was plenty and really set us up for the day. Obviously, as it was low season, we received undivided attention (another good reason to avoid high season!). Litsa and Iannis showed us the other beautiful rooms of the hotel - there are some that are really spacious, more like small flats, where entire family can stay quite comfortably. They are all self contained and stylishly decorated - some have terraces, some don't, a few have jacuzis....even our small suit had a small kitchen, although we only used it once to cook a romantic dinner to eat on our terrace. The whole hotel seemed spotless! Litsa cleaned the room and changed our bedding every other day and almost everyday we had fresh towels, even if we did not need them. I am trying to think of what we didn't like about the island or the hotel, and I am struggling... Probably the thing I liked the least about the island was the amount of stray cats around... there are literally hundreds, everywhere and they are always begging for food. Clearly they are left to reproduce freely, and they do! But they have become like pests! The people on the island should definitely do something about it e.g. sterilising the females. Obviously being out of season, most restaurants were quiet, and probably they didn't have the same variety and choice that they would have during high season - however, we always ate very well and healthily. My partner ate lots of fish, but meat dishes seem to be popular too. I am a vegetarian and I had lots of choice of salads, hummous, vegetable fritters and pastas. However if you are a vegetarian do check with the restaurants what is in a vegetable dish, as once I had a surprise... sausages are definitely not a vegetable... :-)  Also I guess after a hot summer, the land is quite dry and barren. Litsa says that in April/May (spring) the island is beautiful because of the vegetation and flowers and the temperature is also very good - so next time we want to try and go maybe in early May so that we avoid the crowds again.
We really feel that this family run hotel is special - I would stay there again and I hope we will be able to go next year.
 
97. " best summer "
We went to Astypalaia after Paros.We arrive by boat.Mike (the owner) was there to pick up us to the hotel. The studio that we were staying was perfect.It has a wanderfull sea view and was very quite. The breakfast it was traditional and miss litsa see made a perfect strudel.
We hope to be there the next year.The staff of hotel was very kindly and the hospitality too.
For us was one of the best hotel.
 
98. " excellent hotel ! we 'll be back "
This hotel is a small jewel much better than the internet photos show!Beautiful view as all of it is overlooking the sea and the right side of the Chora yet being so close to it-just walking distance.All of it is decorated in the traditional style but in a much lighter way that leads to a really fresh atmosphere.We stayed at the "Asvestoti" suite which was very shiny and spacious with 2 bedrooms,living-room with open fully equipped kitchen , bathroom and a big nice veranda to enjoy the nice view-perfect for a family.Everything was very clean and well-prepared with all the boutique hotel detail everyday. The breakfast was of a wide variety and most of the served goods were homemade by the owner !And then last but not least,she was so much caring about us always willing to suggest us the best.All of us had a great time and will definitelly be back next year!
 
99. " vacanza perfetta "
splendido soggiorno in un'isola speciale ...coccolati dai gestori dell'hotel sempre attenti e disponibili...l'isola e' fantastica ,fuori dal turismo di massa con spiagge incantevoli e mare straordinario.speriamo di rivederci presto!!!!
 
100. " toppenstalle "
Vi blev väldigt väl omhändertagna när vi anlände. Och, vilket boende vi fick! Jättefräscha rum med fräsch toalett och komplett kök, vilket vi inte använde någon gång dock. Fritt Wi Fi. Utsikt från balkongen mot poolen och Chora med morgonsol. Väldigt bra frukost. Ville man tex ha hyrbil, ja då ordnade de det De lade även ned sin själ i att hjälpa oss med att skriva ut våra boarding cards ifrån deras dator, då vi hade strul med detta hemma i Sverige. Detta är verkligen ett ställe vi rekommenderar! Det var tråkigt att lämna dem och behöva resa hem. De hämtade och lämnade oss på flygplatsen, och vi försökte verkligen att få betala, men det var rent omöjligt att få betala resorna fram och tillbaka.
 
101. " Mi candido a Sindaco "
Anche quest'anno in occasione delle ferie estive ho trovato la solita piacevole accoglienza amichevole degli anni precedenti da parte della famiglia Mariakis. Speriamo che l'isola rimanga ancora a lungo lontano dal turismo di massa e commerciale e dal caos delle isole greche più famose. Quindi do ancora il massimo dei voti alla struttura Tholaria.
Anche quest'anno a luglio il clima ed il mare sono stati fantastici con il Meltemi costante a 15-20 nodi che ci permetteva di prendere il sole senza sentire il caldo della stagione estiva. Certo la crisi si avverte anche qui ma se paragoniamo lo standard di vita delle nostre città e quello di Astypalia credo di preferire quello greco. Pertanto ho deciso di candidarmi alle prossime elezioni come sindaco di Astypalia per poter vivere di mare e pesca lontano dai problemi italiani
 
102. " Indimenticable "
Ho soggiornato al tholaria la settimana di Ferragosto col mio compagno, nella suite IMEROVIGLI.
L'isola e' un sogno: piccola ma organizzata, movimentata la sera ma con spiaggette nascoste e deserte di giorno. Il Tholaria e' una bomboniera. Carinissimo e impeccabile nei suoi alloggi uno diverso dall'altro e dislocati in vari livelli, gentilissimi e molto disponibili i titolari che ci hanno aiutato in tutto, dal noleggio dell'auto a quello del gommone per arrivare ad accompagnarci al piccolo aereoporto il giorno della partenza ed attendere con noi il volo. Sarà stata l'atmosfera incantata delle candide viuzze della Chora o la cordialità e l'efficienza spontanea del Tholaria, o forse l'una e l'altra cosa assieme ma per noi è stata una vacanza davvero da sogno e contiamo di ritornarci anche la prossima estate. che logorano e fanno venire la nausea.
 
103. " sehr gut "
Das Hotel ist etwas abseits vom Hauptort Astypalea in RIchtung Livadi. Der Nachteil war daher die Wegstrecke, der Vorteil die absolute Ruhe, die aber in Astypalea überall vorherrscht, zumindest zu unserer Reisezeit. Unser Zimmer war groß und bestens eingerichtet, die Aufteilung auf zwei Stockwerke war charmant, aber das permanent notwendige Benützen der Wendeltreppe mit der Zeit etwas nervig. Dafür hatte es den großen Vorteil zweier Badezimmer! Der Blick von der Terrasse aufs Meer war sehr schön, ebenso auf die Festung. Das Gastgeberehepaar und die Mitarbeiter sehr freundlich, das Frühstück ganz vorzüglich.Wir können das Hotel bestens empfehlen.
 
104. " bellisima isola e bellissimo hotel "
Siamo da poco (purtroppo) tornati dall'isola di Astipalea e dal Tholarya Boutique Hotel! Che dire! Ci manca già tantissimo. Abbiamo ricevuto un'accoglienza super e la nostra stanza, con l'idromassaggio all'aperto, è stato quanto di più bello e romantico possiate immaginare. Da non dimenticare la gentilezza della famiglia Mariakis e le indimenticabili colazioni con dolci fatti in casa. Non posso che confermare tutte le recensioni precedenti. Speriamo tanto di avere la possibilità di ritornare il prossimo anno.
 
105. " purtroppo ci sono...ricascato..."
Forse il titolo..non e' dei piu' promettenti.. e vi chiederete giustamente il motivo..
Semplice: 
Sono ritornato ancora con lo stesso mio amico di un anno fa, al Tholaria, per passare con la famiglia Mariakis la pasqua ortodossa.
E' stato qualcosa di unico..e veramente speciale.
In primis il " THOLARIA" una piccola bomboniera ..con vista sull'Egeo.
Un resort di dimensioni ridotte, gestito magnificamente dalla famiglia Mariakis, composto da appartamenti e suites uno diverso dall'altro arredati in modo squisito ed elegante.
Ci si sente come a casa propria per il calore che i gestori sanno trasmettere ai propri clienti, ma allo stesso modo ci si puo' rilassare in assoluta privacy e riservatezza, per coloro che intendono isolarsi e staccare la spina. 
Il ci sono ricascato...e' il risultato di quanto vi ho appena descritto.
Sono ritornato per vivere ancora un 'esperienza indimenticabile..e vi assicuro..che l'anno prossimo..saro' ancora da quelle parti..!!!
Credetemi, amanti della vera Grecia, quella che ancora non e' stata intaccata dal turismo di massa,quella Grecia che vi permettera' di vivere una vacanza veramente speciale in un posto incantevole, Astypalea, ed il Tholaria, sono li che vi aspettano.
Sono qualcosa di magnifico...
Non indugiate ...affrettatevi e partite..!!!
Credetemi , non rimarrete delusi.
Chiunque voglia contattarmi per eventuali dettagli ed informazioni lo faccia senza problemi.

106. " la seconda volta per la pasqua ortodossa al Tholaria hotel "
Anche quest'anno abbiamo deciso di trascorrere la Pasqua ortodossa al THOLARIA della famiglia Mariakis, e devo dirvi che ci siamo sentiti come a casa nostra,rispetto all'anno scorso il tempo e'stato magnifico e questo non ha fatto altro che redere il soggiorno ancora piu'indimenticabile.il soggiorno
Avevamo una camera con un terrazzo magnifico con vista mare anche se tutte le camere hanno una vista spettacolare ,arredate con eleganza e cura,il silenzio e la quiete di questo posto mi e'rimasta nel cuore.
Ma nel cuore mi e'rimasta l'emozione di trascorrere insieme agli ospiti dell'hotel e alla Famiglia Mariakis la sera della Pasqua tutti insieme a mezzanotte nella hall a cena,e il giorno successivo a pranzo sempre tutti insieme, qualcosa di speciale davvero da vivere per poter capire la felicita' di queste stupende persone.
potrei stare ore a raccontarvi una settimana di soggiono,con il motorino a spasso per le spiaggie solitarie in questo periodo,o al tramonto nella piazzetta al bar meltemi posto di ritrovo degli isolani a sorseggiare un ouzo con un una vista sulla Chora,Io ho assaporato la vera grecia ho perso l'orizzonte temporale delle giornate, ho staccato senza forzare la spina dal mondo quotidiano di stress, rumore, freddo, pioggia.pensieri, proccupazioni,,chi cerca un posto per dimenticare nel modo giusto la solita vita questo e il vostro posto,se poi ci andate fuori stagione come il sottoscritto allora vi rimarra' il Mal di Grecia.............
 
107. " Gastfreundschaft pur "
Im Mai 2013 verbrachten wir (Paar um 50) 10 Tage in diesem schönen, sauberen und freundlchen Hotel. Unser großes Studio war hell und liebevoll eingerichtet. Von der großzügigen Terasse hatten wir Blick auf das Meer und die Festung der Altstadt. Den Start in den Tag versüßte uns ein vielseitiges Frühstück mit selbstgemachten Marmeladen und Gebäck (super Cappuccino:). Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Herzlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft der Gastfamilie und ihrer Mitarbeiter. Für uns - Weiterempfehlung mit "Geheimtippfaktor".
 
108. " Tres bonne qualite "
Nous avons séjourné dans la suite Aigeio, avec petite piscine privé. La chambre est sympathique, dans les tons de blanc et bleu, avec sa terrasse privée sur la mer. L'hôtel est calme, placé en bas de la route principale. Orienté vers l'est il ne permet donc pas trop de profiter de la petite piscine en rentrant de la plage car en ombre. Bonne literie, bon rapport qualité prix, la propriétaire est très efficace dans sa gestion et ses conseils en terme de restaurants et plages sont parfaits. Petit déjeuner grec de très bonne qualité. L'hôtel est un excellent point de départ pour explorer l'île. Par contre je le considère plus une très bonne maison d'hôtes que un boutique hôtel...
 
109. " erholsame Tage in einem wunderschonen Hotel "
Wir verbrachten im September 2012 sechs Tage auf Astypalea im Hotel Tholaria. Wir wohnten in einer der großzügig geschnittenen Familiensuiten und waren sehr zufrieden. Die Einrichtung war gepflegt und liebevoll zusammengestellt. Die dazugehörige Terasse groß und mit phantastischem Blick auf das Meer und das im Ort liegende Kastel. Das Hotelbesitzerpaar und ihr Sohn kümmerten sich ausgesprochen freundlich und aufmerksam um die Gäste, Wünsche wurden sofort erfüllt. Außergewöhnlich gut war das Frühstück, es gab viele hausgemachte Sachen (Marmeladen, Brötchen und Kuchen b.z.w Pasteten). Das Hotel ist sehr empfehlenswert.
 
110. " Meritato !!! "
Nel momento in cui stò scrivendo questa recenzione il Tholaria Boutique Hotel occupa il primo posto.... meritato !!!!
le stanze sono fantastiche il giusto equilibrio fra tradizione e modernità, raffinato ma non eccessivo l'ambiete è familiare pur riservando agli ospiti gli standart di un grande Hotel.
La colazione è ricca e varia pur rimanendo in un ambiente "casalingo".
Non sò se mai torneremo ad Astypalea ma sicuramente il Tholaria sarà nuovamente la nostra scelta
 
111. " Un posto incantevole arredato nei dettagli accoglienza familiare "
L'accoglienza dei proprietari, la bellezza dei luoghi, l'ambiente elegante ma non troppo formale, l'arredamento curato nei dettagli, la pulizia giornaliera molto amccurata ed un ottima colazione, ci hanno permesso di vivere due settimane di vacanza veramente piacevoli. Ringrazio tutta la famiglia Mariakis, che ci ha fatto sentire come se fossimo a casa. Abbiamo soggiornato in entrambe le family suite Asvestoli e Tolos entrambe molto belle. Infine Astypalia anche nelle prime due settimane di Agosto é un isola affascinate e non particolarmente affollata.
 
112. " Genial ! "
El hotel es muy bonito, situado en un acantilado y por lo tanto con unas vistas preciosas. El estudio que alquilamos era muy amplio con un decorado typico de la zona. Los duenos son geniales aunque a veces la comunicacion es un poco complicada por el idoma ellos haran todo lo posible para que estes a gusto y ayudaran en todo lo necesario.Mrs Litsa nos vino a bucar a las 4 de la maniana al puerto (es cuando llegaba el ferry)! Un hotel muy recomendable.
 
113. " sehr schones,gepflegts Hotel mitn Sonnescheingarantie "
Lolita W.
Im Juni 2011 war ich für 10 Tage in diesem sehr schönen, sauberen und gut gelegenen Hotel.
Wir hatten Glück, weil das Hotelbesitzer Ehepaar, sehr, sehr nett und zuvorkommend ist( wirkliche griechische, hervorragende Gastfreundschaft) Wir wurden kulinarisch verwöhnt und konnten zum Beispiel morgens ein wunderbares Frühstück auf der großen Terrasse mit Meerblick genießen. Entspannen konnten wir im wunderschönen Jakuzzi unserer Suite.Ich kann das Hotel nur empfehlen und denke gern an diesen Urlaub zurück
 
114. " pasqua ortodossia con la famiglia Mariakis "
sono appena tornato dall isola di ASTIPALEA dove per una settimana ho soggiornato al tholaria con un amico di infanzia anche lui amante delle isole greche.
abbiamo conosciuto i proprietari la famiglia Mariakis e subito ci siamo sentiti a casa ,il tholaria boutique e'davvero una boutique,a picco sul mare,con una vista sulla chora magnifica,le camere tutte diverse ma arredate con cura e attenzione anche nei minimi particolari,l'unico rumorre che si sente e'quello del mare,la colazione al piano superiore in una piccola sala con un terrazzino con vista e'il modo migliore per inziare la giornata.
E poi la cortesia la disponibilita'la simpatia dei proprietari che ormai sono amici, e ci hanno accolto come persone e non come clienti.
tholaria e'vicino alla chora si arriva a piedi e penso sia una delle piu'meglio conservate della grecia, perdersi al tramonto nelle vie strette per arrivare al castello e' qualcosa di affascinante
Poi si torna e ci si ferma alla plagia ,la piazza e al bar melteti ritrovo degli isolani sia scolta musica e si sorseggia ouzo con la vista sui mulini a vento davanti a Voi..
il tholaria con la sua discrezione ed eleganza e la vita dell'isola ti fanno dimenticare davvero ogni preoccupazione Io per una settimana ho svuotato la testa ,ho visto altre isole, ma questa ha lasciato il segno............................................
 
115. " fantastic "
Wir verbrachten das griechische Osterfest auf Astypalea, eine sehr alternative da noch nicht so touristisch erschlossene Insel. Trotz des an diesem Wochenendes nicht ganz perfekten Wetters hatten wir einen wundervollen Aufenthalt, vor allem durch die herzliche und unkomplizierte Betreuung der Besitzerfamilie. Das Hotel ist sehr detailverliebt eingerichtet und hat ein sehr persönliches Ambiente, man fühlt sich schnell zuhause und merkt gar nicht mehr, dass man im Urlaub ist. Die Besitzer erfüllen jeden noch so kleinen Wunsch und zögern keine Sekunde, wenn es darum geht, auf der Insel von einem Punkt zum anderen zu gelangen. Wir durften an ihrem Ostermahl teilnehmen und wurden mit in die örtliche Kirche zur Karprozession genommen, hin- und hergefahren wohin immer wir wollten und es wurde allgemein auf unsere generellen zeitlichen Wünsche Rücksicht genommen, sei es beim Frühstück, bei der An- und Abreise oder bei Ausflugswünschen. Für den Preis ein toller Griff auf einer sehr schönen Insel, wir werden wiederkommen.
 
116. " super erholung ! "
Im Sommer 2011 hatten wir super Tage in diesem Hotel. Wir hatten eine Suite mit privatem Jakuzzi draußen mit tollem Aussicht. Die Hausherren sind sehr nett und freundlich, es gibt tolles Frühstück mir selbst gebackenen Brötchen. Wir hatten erholsame und schöne Urlaub dort.
Kann ich nur weiter empfehlen!!!
 
117. " la paradis , la vue en plus "
Début juin à Astipalaia : Cette île, contrairement à certaines de ses voisines, vit et bouge déjà, alors que les touristes n'ont pas encore débarqué. Le loueur de voitures nous attend à l'aéroport et nous conduit à l'Hôtel Tholaria. La maîtresse de maison, que nous devons obligatoirement appeler par son petit nom, Litza, nous accueille chaleureusement et, alors que son mari, Iannis, s'occupe de nos bagages, nous descendons quelques marches, contournons la piscine pour rejoindre la suite Aigeo avec sa terrasse et sa vue digne d'une carte postale: la mer Egée, la baie de Livadi à nos pieds, en face, l'anse d'Agios Konstantinos et, juste à côté, la colline du berger et de son immense troupeau de brebis. Le petit déjeuner apporte une autre surprise très agréable : les oeufs à la coque sont "à la coque" (rare) et le yaourti mé méli sublime. Comme elle le fera tous les jours, Litza nous indique le restaurant ou la taverna où il faut avoir mangé, puis, munis de notre petit 4x4, les routes, les pistes, les criques (et les petits plats) d'Aspalaia sont à nous. Epicuriens contemplatifs, n'hésitez pas !
