We had spent a few days at Mediterraneo last year and kept day-dreaming about the view from our room, the relaxing atmosphere and the finest hospitality by Marie, Ismael, Natalie and Alayna.
The picture perfect port of Kastellorizo was in full display from our window. After the rich breakfast and the outstanding service we would dip in the water, literally two steps from our door. We loved watching the sea turtles sticking their heads out of the Southern Aegean to catch a breath. At night, we would lounge in the chaises looking at the stars. What a treat it was catching the full moon of September in our beloved Kastellorizo. We cannot wait to see you again dear friends!

The boho-chic boutique hotel has Turkish accents and a marvellous waterfront location right at the entrance to the harbour. Gorgeous print bathrobes, which French owner Marie Rivalant also sells in her boutique, are provided for swimming, straight off the terrace.
Lazarakis - This is a long-time favourite with locals and yacht owners who step straight off their boats into a taverna chair. Yorgos, the owner, who is the husband of Marie Rivalant, owner of Mediterraneo, offers home-cooked Greek dishes with a good wine selection.

The place to stay is the Mediterraneo groundfloor suite, one of the old waterfront mansion into a colourful haven, with bedrooms looking out over the harbour (though the groundfloor suite is the best) and a sunbathing terrace on the quayside. It doesn't have a pool, but a bathing ladder drops you into the aquariumclear sea, where tiny, rainbow coloured fish swim around your toes. There is no à la carte restaurant or bar, either, but breakfast is a lavish Levantine affair of yoghurt, island honey, nuts, homemade preserves, cheese and freshbaked bread - and with a chain of tavernas and cafèbars all around the waterfront, there is no need to eat at the same place twice.
Our stay was wonderful.The rooms are very beautiful decorated and the beds are very comfortable. But the best things are the breakfast and the wonderful location on the end of the quay.Breakfast is serviced on a terrace and had a lot tooffer, bread, croissants, marmelades, cheese, tomatoes, omelettes,fresh orange juice etc. But waking up in the morning, the view over the sea and village should make everybody happy.It is a lovely relaxed island (maybe more partying in high season) with superb seafood restaurants. Go there!And stay in the only hotel with personality (thanks to the french owner/ architect Marie):Mediterraneo!
