Andros Holiday Hotel was the first stop on my 2017 multi-island Greek adventure. It’s walking distance from the ferry port in Gavrio, set on a small peninsula at the south end of the village.
View from the hotel restaurant looking south towards Giaros/Syros.
On arrival, my friend Ed and I were shown to our rooms by the friendly staff and quickly settled in. The hotel wasn’t busy, but Andros isn’t quite as busy with tourists as other islands, and Gavrio is a less popular resort. Most people opt for Batsi further down the west coast of the island.
The room was basic but comfortable and spacious enough for a short stay. The following day, we enjoyed breakfast before heading out to catch the bus to Andros Town. Again, the staff were fantastic and helped us with directions to the nearest bus stop.
Unfortunately, we never got a chance to use the hotel pool, as we arrived back later than expected on our final day, only having time to shower before heading back out to eat in the evening.
I would recommend the Andros Holiday Hotel, though: it’s a convenient and well-priced hotel that provides an excellent base if arriving by ferry.
