Unfortunately we were misled by the reviews here and by the name itself that "the rock" rooms are the same as "Vrachos rooms". They are not. The good things about the "The rock" is the view where you have to climb some steep stairs to reach your room and that is on the port which is convenient. We stayed for 5 days and all the time the room was smelling as mold even inside the closet where we couldn't keep our clothes. We were obliged to keep the window all day open but we got up very early in the morning because of the sun entering from the open window. The room was spacious but old, the shower very small, the bed and pillow very poor quality that led to bad sleep, the towels were never changed, no WiFi. Definitely doesn't worth 70 euro per day.
This is an excellent accommodation. Maria, the owner, is very nice and helpful. She speaks English, French and Turkish fluently. The hotel is 1 minute walk from the port, and this implies that the area is absolutely quite and you can enjoy a great view on the bay. The spacious room are very clean and comfortable. You can find everything that you need in the communal kitchen space. Swimming and sunbathing on the rocks just below hotel are fantastic. Main sandy beach is very close. At the same time, The bus stop - which in Alpronia is fairly important - is just 2 minutes walk. Buses depart from there almost every one hour from 07.30 at morning till midnight to beautiful Kastro and Chorio.
Sikinos is a real find for anyone looking for a real Greek island experience, full of sights, colours and senses.
Thank you for everything Maria, we definitely come to Sikinos again. Absolutely recommended !
Excellent location, Rock beach and main sandy beach at close distance. Nice, clean room (by Greek standard) with a small balcony (room 6, top floor) and a host with great character (Pavlos). Came to pick us up from the port although the hotel is only 100-200m or so from the port. Would recommend!
We had 8 wonderful days and was enjoying the fantastic view.
Maria and her brother were great hosts
Swimming from the rocks just below the studios are a perfect spot for snorkeling.
Our room was nice and clean.
We can highly recommend this place and we will come back in the future - it is special place
We had a studio room with an amazing view overlooking the harbour. We were greeted by Pavlo who very kindly carried a heavy case up the steps on arrival and down again when we left. He provided us with all the information we needed and gave us additional mosquito deterrents as they were a bit of a menace on our first night.
The only very small niggle we had was that although the bin in the bathroom was emptied, the room was not serviced every day but then we were only there 2 nights.
