We stayed at Pelagos for a week in May, for the first time, and had a great time. Yes, loads of people were there who had been before, but it's not hard to just muck in and feel part of the group. If you don't want to, that's fine as well. I could write a great long essay about the negative comments of previous posts, but it's not really worth it.
I've stayed in many hotels in the Greek Islands, of differing ratings and standards, and this is one of the best. It is small, and fmaily run- if you know Greece, that should tell you all you need to know about the high standards and quality of the welcome.
It is a distance from Skala, but we had some lovely romantic walks back under fantastic star-lit skies. The bar could be noisy, but we woke to the sound of goat bells on the hillside. Maybe the barbecue is a bit pricey, but there's plenty to eat and it is good fun.
I left some jewellery there, and emailed Billy on the off-chance they could find it. They did, and posted it back to me within a week. That says everything, really. (Thanks Billy!)
Basically, it depends on your outlook- glass half full or half empty. Go with the flow, relax and enjoy a fabulous setting, a glorious island and good company. No TV in the rooms? So what. You're on holiday.
