Reviewed 23 June 2012

Very friendly and helpful hotel. Although we didn't have a sea view, we had an excellent clean room with balcony (useful drying area and small washing line!) but, unusually no hairdryer, which I didn't discover till I came out of the shower. Comfortable beds. Only grumble was very poor breakfast - no fresh juice or bread, just sliced, and lukewarm coffee. Excellent restaurants nearby.

Just spent 14 days at the Kastro. No restaurant service now and breakfast consists of two slices of toast, one coffee or tea, and one glass of orange juice. You do however get honey AND jam, one sachet of each. The slice of Orange cake we had for the first four days evaporated after my wife asked for an alternative and was replaced with two cheese slices....one each!
The owner,Paris, is quite friendlybut one gets the feeling his heart isn't really in the job. His right hand man, Stratis, is pleasant and seems to be picking up the job well enough!
The Hotel is scrupulously clean and sheets and towels were changed regularly so if you're dieting and fastidious, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: We paid extra to get a sea view and felt it was worth it as the balcony overlooks the beach, and get...

Stayed for 2 weeks in 2010 via Thomas Cook. We had stayed in Stoupa several times in a villa and eaten in Kastro's restaurant many times. We decided to stay in Kastro hotel for 2 reasons, its location and its restaurant. On arrival we found that the restaurant had closed although it was still featured in the Thomas Cook brochure. The hotel is in a fantastic location, is clean, quiet and comfortable. However the breakfast was poor. My only complaints are the boring breakfast, the disappearance of the restaurant. We reported our disappointment to Thomas Cook who were not interested. Overall, a nice hotel in a fantastic resort but hgo out for breakfast.

My daughter and I have been visiting Stoupa since 2001 and we had always intended to stay at the Kastro Hotel at some point, having eaten there and knowing its location right on the central beach, where we love to snorkel.

After booking, we read some poor reviews and were a little concerned that standards had slipped, but decided to go with an open mind. We were absolutely delighted with our holiday.

We received a pleasant greeting on arrival and were shown the facilities including the fridge, in-room safe, television, spotless bathroom (with bath and shower) and our air-conditioning with remote control, which was highly effective. Our beds were very comfortable and we both slept really well, despite external temperatures of 40 oC with 50% humidity!

The breakfast did lack variety, it was toast with butter, jam and honey, and orange cake every day, but the coffee was lovely and since there are so many tavernas and cafes in the resort, the simple breakfast was fine. The restaurant no longer opens, but again, the hotel is so central that this really doesn't matter.

Hotel sunbeds are 5 Euros per day for two sunbeds and a large, static umbrella, but this is the going rate throughout the resort. There is also a tap and hose-pipe provided in the hotel drive-way for rinsing sand from your legs and feet, so that your room stays nice and clean.

The hotel is immaculately clean, and fresh-smelling, with a very high standard of finish. Bedding and all towels were replaced every day. I have travelled widely in Greece including the mainland, many islands and Athens. The only hotel that has surpassed the Kastro was a major 5 star hotel in central Athens.

The staff were all very helpful, friendly and polite, although not over-chatty. Most of the other guests were Greek, as are the majority of visitors to Stoupa, and we particularly enjoy the authentic nature of the resort and this hotel. Visitors preferring English food and company would probably enjoy a large island resort more than Stoupa.

We will definitely stay at the Kastro Hotel again next time we go to Stoupa. Thank you.

Great location (on a lovely sandy beach and surrounded by plenty of tavernas). Very comfortable beds and rooms. Extremely clean (much better than some 5* hotels I've stayed in). Friendly welcome and friendly staff (especially Katarina!).
