"We adored it! "

Rate:  5 Stars

We spent a long weekend in June and 3 days in a second visit mid July in Celini.

The hotel - perfect for those who do not wish to spent long hours to reach their destination - is situated on a hill a 5߀™ drive from the port of Marmari, a small town in the south-west of Evia island, with no particular interest. The ferry from the port of Rafina (very frequent at least during the high and pick season) is the easiest and fastest way (1h) to get to Marmari.

The moment we set foot in the hotel߀™s doorstep we felt happy and relaxed : the view from the reception/lounge/pool area to the golf of Marmari and Petalii islands and to the surrounding hills is magnificent.

The layout of the hotel, with the studios climbing on the slope of the hill guaranties privacy and an nice view from the rooms and terraces.

Ther rooms are simple yet comfortable , with quality bed, linen and pillows, a sofa that can be transformed in a single bed, a flat screen TV, a large closet, a bath with shower (there is a wall mounted hook for the shower head, which apparently was not the case when߀?DELondon߀™ stayed in the hotel) and a kitchenette. Bath robes and slippers are also provided.

The windows in the rooms are large and the feeling of the room full of light very pleasant. We could even have a view of the sea from our bed!

In our second stay we found that shades have been installed for the high windows ߀“ a much appreciated addition for the guests longing for a few more hours to sleep in the morning and a sign that the owners are willing to constantly improve things.

I have read the ߀?DELondon߀ review and found it very helpful. Apparently the new owners have made several small improvements since last May, perhaps the most important being the price and quality of the breakfast:
The breakfast, included to the room rate, is no less than excellent. Nothing is missing: Apart from the continental breakfast staples there is fresh orange juice and fruits, eggs cooked ߀?a la minute߀ by the chef, homemade apple-pie and jams, a variety of cheeses and cold cuts along with homemade breads and so on߀¦ A divine cheese/leek quiche and an absolutely delicious lemon tart made also their appearance during our second stay. I would rate it as a 5*+ breakfast.

The restaurant was open for lunch and dinner offering top quality dishes; not surprising, as the family who runs the hotel are also the owners of a very nice restaurant in the north suburbs of Athens, which we regularly visit. The sea food risotto was divine, the black rice risotto with shrimps and feta cheese and the roasted lamb shank with trahana (a Greek pasta) were delicious, to name only a few of the dishes we enjoyed during our stay. The prices are fair, given the quality of the food and the service provided.

There is a nice infinity pool with a small number of sun beds and umbrellas in front of the lounge and dining area but we chose the beach which is less than 5߀™ drive from Celini. With clear waters and not crowded ߀“ even in the pick of the season as we have been told, it was just perfect for us.

The wi-fi connection (pool/lounge area) works very well and one more positive element is the large parking lot, rarely found in small hotels.

Celini is a small gem situated in an little-known area of Greece, very close to Athens.The owners are paying attention to every detail, descretely acting like real hosts to their guests. It is certainly the ideal destination for people who appreciate an excellent value for money small hotel, with customer - oriented, friendly and professional service.

We will certainly be back again and again!

"Wonderful view,great breakfast,relaxation pure "

Rate:  4 Stars

All rooms on the side of the mountain with fantastic sea views.Also the very nice swimming pool allows view to sea. Nice terrace - you can sun lounge at pool or sit at tables and use wifi, have coffee,drinks,etc. All very relaxing. Nice background music but otherwise a very "quiet" feeling. Our room was very large and had huge patio doors (that could be fully opened) with the most incredible sea and mountain views.Very comfortable bed. Only downside in room were the little ants which were in the kitchen corner...didn`t bother us since we didn`t use the kitchen.The reception promptly gave us an insect spray when we asked. Also I didn`t manage to get hot water from the shower...again was not a disaster since it was so hot outside so I appreciated the cooling water! My husband had hot water so assume it ran out before I showered. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful - freshly squeezed orange juice, homemade cheese pies,homemade lemon curd cake as well as all the usual bacon,eggs,etc. Help yourself filter coffee or choice of expresso, greek coffee,etc. Wonderful selection of "healthy" breads. And eaten on the terrace in front of the pool - perfect! We will definitely return - though its for me a 1 or 2 night relaxation place and not a longer stay seaside hotel....just because I couldn`t walk to the beach (or rather could walk down but certainly not back up in the heat!). You need a car to get to town or beach.

Room tip: we had the room nearest to the kitchen - not a good idea since the kitchen A/C is loud in the evenin...

"Great hotel with wonderful view"

Rate:  5 Stars

We were a company of two families with small children. The accommodation was excellent. They made us feel really comfortable, despite the toddlers being really mischievous and loud. The breakfast is very good and I definitely recommend the sweets (apple pie, lemon pie etc) The view is so lovely and relaxing we didn`t even want to leave the hotel, however since it is located close to very nice beaches we often did. We will most certainly visit again.

Room tip: All rooms are quite spacious.

"An unexpected paradise just a couple of hours from Athens!"

Rate:  5 Stars

The rooms have an amazing character! The stone walls on the outside, the wooden windows and shades in light blue, the lamps decorated with nicely crafted hats, the nicely painted pink textures on the walls...every corner has a tiny detail assisting you to escape! The rooms` verandas(balcony) have an amazing view to the bay with a northern breeze and a nice arrangment that keeps your privacy even from the people in the adjacent room. The restaurant`s cuisine is tottally recommended and the chefs (yes in plurar one for the meals and one for the sweets) do a great job in providing every day a new meal to enjoy and explore. So be prepared to see at least a new taste arriving every morning in your breakfast! The service is very helpful keeping always a nice balance between respecting your private space and giving you the feeling that you belong to a family. The pool was cleaned thoroughly every morning and has an amazing view to the bay. We were a family of 3 with an infant but we would definetely visit this place as a couple (or to make a new infant in the future!!!).

We would like to thank the owners and their staff for making our week long stay a very memorable one. We loved the breakfast feast, the views, the helpful staff, the gorgeous pool, the 5 minute drive to the beach location! We will try to come back!

"Great rooms, amazing view! "

Rate:  5 Stars

We first discovered Celini suites by coincidence, but loved the hotel and Evia so much, that returned there several times. Celini offers elegant, luxurious, but simple and eco-friendly rooms. Cocomat beds are extremely comfortable. What is more, the owner is very friendly and we loved having our breakfast and custom-made dinner by the pool, having an amazing view of the sea...
