What a lovely place, very tranquil and run by a great brother and sister team. Nothing too much trouble. Great cleaner. Highly recommended. Scrambled eggs at breakfast very tasty. Will definitely return in the future.

Just spent an enjoyable week with the family(7). Have always stayed in the actual village of katelios before so this was the first time at the filoxenia just outside amongst the fields. Alison and Stuart are very welcoming,and knowledgeable.Great people. The rooms are clean and modern,perfect for your stay. There is also a very large clean pool and surrounding with plenty of sun beds. Getting to the village is a short downhill work,a little longer coming back😛. Would definitely return.
A week to reflect

If you want a quiet spot to stay then this is it! 15 minutes from the beach and loads of little eateries! The hotel is up the hillside, good brisk walk and you can do it in 10. The rooms are clean and the cleaner is brilliant. Stuart and Ali are great, know everything about everything so always ask for advice. They serve a continental style breakfast with an extra Euro for each of the sausage bacon and eggs, but well worth it. I always walked to the beach for evening meal. Pool area good, plenty of beds, I hired a quad bike out for a couple of days, cost 100 euros, included helmet and 3rd party insurance. Only moan I would have is the beds where too firm for me and with that I would like a mattress on sun bed as well, but maybe that’s me just being a wuss! All in all good place to stay, all food reasonably priced, thank you Ali and Stuart from Steve
Quiet, peaceful and relaxing

If you are looking for peace and a detox from stress then the location of the Filoxenia apartments is perfect. Stuart and Alison are very welcoming managers of this hotel. The cleaner works tirelessly and the rooms are of a high standard of cleanliness. We had our bedding changed once during a 7 night stay. Our towels were changed whenever we left them on the bathroom floor (universal indication of soiled towels). Katelious is a very quiet village. We were in room 104, ground floor. The mattress was rock solid and not comfortable, but other members of our family had different rooms and their beds were softer and they were happy with theirs. The bathroom facilities are fine. There were fridges in each room. Another family member choose the apartment rather than the room as it implied there was a kitchenette and was hoping to prepare light lunches but none of the rooms have the facilities or equipment to make anything other than a hot drink using the kettle provided. You have to eat out every day (which really is not a hardship and I give the Katelious Grill House which is just up the road, five stars and highly recommend). Alison provides a breakfast each morning, I thought this was sufficient but limited. It consists of bread you can toast, cold boiled eggs, cheese slices, 2 cereal choices, cakes, yoghurt, coffee, fruit juice, tea. I think scrabbled eggs should be served upon request and fruit. (you can pay for a banana, fried eggs, scrabbled egg, bacon. You do hear your adjacent rooms. The clientele attracted to this hotel whilst we were there were all respectful and quiet so the thin walls did not cause an issue (our family was probably the noisiest by far). Most of the rooms have an outside seaing area but its all open planned. The pool is cleaned every day. Pool area is clean and tidy. If you drink imported spirits from the bar then I think its expensive everywhere in Katelios (say 7 euro for a bacardi and coke but if you drink local wines etc they are very reasonable). We visited 2nd week of the season, so very early, and the hotel was quiet so there was plenty of sun lounges and space. Probably sufficient even if it was booked up. A safe was available for a rental charge of 10 euro. Air con is chargeable, but we did not use it so cannot comment. I love cats, there are approximately 10 cats that come to Alison every day for feeding etc. They do not cause any problems. Friday evening they run a quiz night for charity (Stuart and Alison are supporters of an animal charity), hotel visitors are welcome to participate and join in with the quiz. I would love to see a pool table and table tennis for a possible past time but there is insufficient space with present facilities. We had arranged trips whilst we were there so was happy with the balance of activities to chill out time.
So relaxing, a great find

We travelled in early September, having read we had a few reviews we were looking forward to experiencing it ourselves. We felt the accommodation deserved better than a two star but understand the rating system. Like a few previous comment we felt the cleaning of the room wasn't great but this was sorted half way through our holiday when they replaced the cleaner. I have to say the two ladies were very good. What can we add about Stewart and Allison, they were brilliant, really helpful and always cheery. They make the Filoxenia. Our only grip was that we would have liked a screen between the apartments outside, we are not antisocial its just that some times you like a bit of privacy. Hopefully the owner will take on other peoples comments and rectify this small gripe. Would we stay again, yes. Great little find, close to the this lovely . village. Please visit Katelios and explore the island but most of all go and stay at the Filoxenia, you will not be disappointed.
