We arrived later than anticipated but Anna was there in a flash to welcome us to the hotel. Things just got better and better. The next day we settled down for breakfast that was very well received. Normally we rarely eat at the same place twice whilst on holiday but I have to say that the food was absolutely marvellous, a big surprise, we didn’t eat anywhere else for the five days we were there. Anna and her husband Manolis along with their daughter Évangélia were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Manolis even ferried us up to Olymbos and collected us on time, I nearly finished my coffee! I can’t recommend Maistrali enough.
Anna was truly a gem. Not only did she and her husband meet me at the boat, but she did everything in her power to make my stay so enjoyable! The welcoming kindness of Anna made this an even more memorable stay. I loved the great balcony on the good sized room. Anna was very generous in offering her time and "treats." Very much appreciated. I would love to return.
Anna, Manolis and her daughter definitely made our holiday a great staying in the lovely Diafani village. They first saved us from a terrible accomodation we had booked back in March and whose host , once arrived, wanted us to stay in a smelling, dirty and small studio. Fortunately Anna managed to accomodate us in one of the Maestralis apartment which was very nice, large, with a nice dining room, 2 bedrooms and a balcony with a great sea view. Breakfasts were top and served always with a smile by Anna's daughter. Everything was very good and freshly cooked - omelettes, great pancakes, crêpes, milkrice, home made cakes, yogurt and honey, cereals, eggs, ham&cheese, bread&butter&jam - There is also Anemoussa restaurant for your lunch and dinners with lovely food, great fish and traditional greek plates still revisited a little bit with top ingredient and served beautifully. Bravi!
We booked the apartment not at the beach, but some 76 steps up the hill overlooking the bay. great rooms, a kitchen suitable for preparing breakfast, a great viwe over the bay adn quiet at night. nice landlord. no possibility to get to the house by car !
We stayed at Maistrali studio for three nights in May. The price was reasonable at 35 € and breakfast was 5€ extra per person, and well worth it. The food is absolutely amazing. They have gained the reputation this year to be the best restaurant in Diafani. The owner Anna has a friend named Amalia who is a fantastic chef and came to create the menu this year. The hotel is well located, at one end of the port. It can be a bit noisy in the evening because of the restaurant just below and another restaurant near by. Some evenings people stay on the terrasse past midnight. That being said you can close the door, but because we prefer to sleep with the door open, we were slightly disturbed by this noise. Another consideration is that during our 3 night stay, no one came to the room to provide clean (dry) towels and empty the baskets. They also insist to keep your passport -- perhaps afraid you will leave without paying? It was the first time we saw this in our many trips to Greece. Despite these small shortcomings, we would recommend this hotel but more so during slow season.
We only spent 1 night here but Anna let us stay the next day which gave us time wander around the village. Diafani is quite remote so we had a car. We had a side sea view and everything you might need for a longer stay including a fridge freezer ! The full sea view rooms in the front have been updated and we would certainly choose one of these next time. Only 1 poorly stocked minimarket in Diafani but its a lovely village with a good beach and crystal clear sea
We had the pleasure of staying one night in this lovely studio and we couldn't be happier. The place is perfectly located facing the harbour and the small beach. The room offers anything you need including fridge and a stove and it's very tastefully decorated. The tiny balcony with sea view is a small jewel surrounded by all sort of flowers and plants. It's inexpensive and offers a very good night of sleep in a small gem of Karpathos.
Commanding view, gracious host, immaculate well appointed studios and reasonable cost! Look no further in Diafani for a truly beautiful studio room. The stunning views we had from our cozy balcony were picture perfect. Ms. Ana could not be more helpful, we will definitely be back!
Maistrali studios are located by the beach road in diafani. The owner is superfriendly polite and kind. The rooms have wifi that works (not usual unfortunately for many other rooms for rent) are clean and spacious . Value for money and suggested
Ms. Ana is a very nice, polite and pleasant host. The studio was imaculately clean and comfortable. Terrace overlooks the harbour with pleasant breeze. Comfy beds, crisp clean linen, and the owner even tiedied our clothes aftera while. Our 3 day stay in Diafani spent at the perfect location :)
