As you very well know, I spent 7 days at Chios island, for my cousin’s wedding, so I took many photos to share with you after my return. As soon as I booked our flight, I searched online for the perfect hotel for us to stay, when we get there. I’m very picky, when it comes to hotels, because I’m much of a germ phobic, and in addition to this, really old hotels with heavy decoration, cause me depression. That’s why I search a lot online for the perfect hotel, wherever I go, and so far I had the best of luck with my choices. And in this case, my choice was perfect! The hotel couldn’t be better!
Pearl Bay hotel is located in Daskalopetra, Vrontados, only 7 km away from the city of Chios.
Whenever I visit a new hotel, one of the first things I do, is take photos of the room, and the premises of the hotel. Unfortunately we were in a hurry when we checked in so I took the photos the next day.
This is how our room looked like….
As you can see, it’s very spacious. It has a double bed, a couch, a 42-inch LCD with satellite TV, a PC (!), Wi-Fi, a vanity table, a dining table with 2 chairs, a cute fully equipped kitchen, mini-bar, A/C, safe, ironing table & iron, and an amazing bathroom with hydro-massage and bathroom accessories. And all these in an amazing price! I was really impressed! I read on their site that there was a PC in the room, but couldn’t believe it until I saw it! I mostly used my bf’s Blackberry Playbook though (you can see many of the pics I posted from my trip on my Facebook page) because I don’t like logging in from “public” PCs.
I only managed to swim in the pool twice, and none in the sea (due to the wedding, and “women’s problems” if you know what I mean), but I loved it. It’s not 100% ready yet. They are still fixing the pool’s premises, and making a pool bar, but they will all be ready till the end of this month, as I was told.
I also want to share with you some pics from the reception of the hotel. They aren’t high quality, but they’ll have to do.
This is the bar/ cafeteria with the reception on the right.
And lastly, this is “my spot”. I used to take my breakfast there every day…except the last one, when I took it by the pool. Hehe 😉
The whole hotel has a nice minimal decoration, which is very much my taste, and it’s very new and clean. It also has an “underground” parking for your car.
My experience with the Pearl Bay hotel was absolutely positive, and I can’t wait to revisit Chios, so I can stay there again! Wish I could have stayed more days!
If you’re thinking of visiting Chios island in the future, I totally recommend you stay in this hotel! It’s very close to Chios city, but at the same time far enough to have some peace and quiet. With a lovely beach nearby, and the amazing pool, you can stay there as long as you like. But I recommend you rent a car, to tour the island. There are so many beautiful and picturesque villages you shouldn’t miss.

Stay tuned for my next posts about Chios island! I promise to be back with more beautiful pics. Many new outfit posts are also coming!
