Oh my this place is so romantic. Its like being in a villa in a foreign country. There is lush foliage and water everywhere. It is so peaceful and relaxing.
They have a great free breakfast for all guests in the morning to recharge your batteries.
The architecture is gorgeous. Very Mediterranean and soothing.

Korakia Pensione was built in 1924. The hotel was refurbished in 1989 in the style of a Moroccan villa, and has maintained its old Palm Springs vibe. It is located in the heart of downtown, within walking distance to the most popular restaurants and shops. However, it is hidden away and offers a great escape for its guests--one reason it is popular with celebrities. When you reserve a room ask for one near the pool--it has a mosaic of a crow at the bottom, and is simply gorgeous.

I went here at the end of summer (during an unsual heat wave - it was horrible!) and despite the skin-melting weather this place could not have been better. I have been to PS many many times (and at some of the top spots like The Parker) and I didn't even know this place existed! And so close to the downtown area, too! The staff couldn't have been nicer and the grounds are just so quaint and quiet and rustic ... you truly feel like you're in a different country. At first my fiance was skeptical because the place doesnt have any TVs or radios or phones, but after one night we were loving it. IT truly is a place to unwind and just enjoy a quieter, simpler way to relax. The 'Library' room is great with lots of old books and a little fireplace (which we obviously didnt use) and a bathroom that reminds me of my grandparents' old house. We love the Parker, but this place is a must for that truly 'getaway' experience -- oddly enough the staff said that most people prefer the Mediterranean villas & pool area which are located just across the little road from the main property, but I thought the Moroccan villas and pool were much more charming. I also recommend the on-call massuese they have-- i think her name is Debra; she's blonde. She is THE MOST INCREDIBLE massuese we have ever had!!! (You'd think i'd remember her name since she was so fabulous, but i am bad.) I cannot wait to come back here - it is beautiful and the food they make is delicious. Oh, and the afternoon mint tea with pine nuts swirling on top is such a nice touch. LOve love love this place!

Pros: Absolutely everything

Cons: If you come in the summer, watch out! You might melt.
