With views over the crystal blue Aegean Sea on one side, and hillside palm trees on the other, the fabulous pool area is just one of the attractions of the Paradise Hotel, Alonissos.
The pool is surrounded by an extensive lounging area with chairs, sofas, sunbeds and parasols, with terraces on five levels, right down to the rocks below – ideal for relaxing in the sun or shade.
The pool bar provides delicious snacks, drinks and ice cream during the day, with cocktails and other drinks in the evenings, under the stars in lovely, romantic surroundings with light music. There is a separate children’s pool.
Ideal for those looking for a completely relaxing Greek island holiday, the Paradise Hotel is in a dramatic setting on a low, rugged clifftop, a 10-minute walk, up steps, from the centre of Patitiri, and 500 metres from the beach.
All 31 rooms, decorated in a cool Mediterranean colour scheme, and attractively and comfortably furnished, are modern with traditional features and well maintained, with twin or double beds, and a third bed available for a child. Many have Coco-Mat beds and most have a wonderful sea view, while wifi is free in public areas.
Buffet breakfast can be taken in the dining room or on the large, covered terrace above the swimming pool and facing the tranquil Aegean.
Alonissos has lovely beaches and is home to Europe’s largest Marine Park – its history of merchant seafaring and piracy has made it a popular centre for divers keen to explore shipwrecks on the sea bed when on a holiday to Alonissos.
