A great stay at Angelos Design Suites, Alonissos
I was ready for my stay on the next leg of my Greek island hopping, solo travel adventure. My accommodation was booked and I was looking forward to staying there. Never did I expect to have such a great stay at Angelos Design Suites on the Sporades island of Alonissos.
Angelos Design Suites
From the moment I’d seen pictures of it on Booking.com, my go-to accommodation booking platform, I had a good feeling about Angleos Design Suite. I already liked the look and style from the photos so I had hope that it would live up to my expectations. And it did!
When I arrived at the port in Patitiri, Angelo, the owner of the suites and his dad, came to pick me and two other guests up. The drive to the accommodation was literally only a few minutes away and before I knew it, we were there.
Accommodation and facilities
There are a few different accommodation types available at Angleos. There’s junior, prestige, VIP or master suites to choose from. You can even choose a rooftop suite with private terrace, making eight suites in total. Each one comes with, air conditioning, heating, as well as daily housekeeping and free WiFi.
Elsewhere, there’s free WiFi throughout but if you get bored of surfing the internet or checking emails, there’s a selection of books in the reception area for guests. For relaxing, guests can make use of the terrace at the front of the building near the entrance.

From a junior to a master suite
For my stay, I’d booked a junior suite which was a large room with a lovely extra-large balcony. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived because Angelos had upgraded me to one of the master suites. This suite was much larger and consisted of a separate living area. It was suite number 4 which was located on the second floor.
When I went in, a little blackboard with a lovely welcome message greeted me. That was a nice touch.
My master suite
My master suite had a separate bedroom with a double bed and in the additional living space there were two large sofas on either side.
I had a fantastic sea view from the balcony which looked out across the rooftops and over the port. There was a small corner sofa from which to soak it all in and watch the sunrise or the ferries come in.
Back inside there was a little kitchenette with the usual things you’d find like cutlery, glasses, cups, plates and bowls, a kettle and toaster. There was also a Nespresso machine with enough pods to keep you going for a few days but this was topped up regularly. If you needed it there were also pots and pans and a hob for cooking.
Not only was I well stocked with coffee pods, there were a lots of snacks too like toasted bread, butters and jam for breakfast, to biscuits and croissants. They were all displayed neatly on the side. Chilling in the fridge were a couple of bottles of water and orange juice.
Attention to detail
The suite itself was really beautiful with brown, taupe, cream and white everywhere making it very bright and airy. The colours really complimented every part of the suite, and it didn’t stop there. It had a boutique feel and bespoke decor and furniture either on the wall, floor or hanging from the ceiling. I could tell that the design and decor, right down to the very last detail, had been well thought out.
There were beautiful fixtures and fittings as well as helpful items dotted around too. From an amazing wooden bed headboard with rope woven in between large slots to a cool stool and little bedside tables. On the bedside tables there were scented lavender pouches and earplugs and in the bathroom, a little sewing kit, spare comb, toothbrush, toothpaste and of course, the usual shower gels and hand wash.
The suite had plenty of lighting and lots of plug sockets — always a bonus which was great! An iron and hairdryer were tucked away under the clothes rack if you needed it. I do prefer an iron in the room so you can use it at your leisure and not have to ask for it – so bonus.
One of the coolest features in the bedroom had to be the swing. Yes, a swing! Have never had one of those in any bedroom I’d stayed in, so it was a fun addition.
Final thoughts on Angelos Design Suites
There was nothing not to like about my stay. Angelos was so friendly and welcoming and showed me all the best places to visit on the island.
He provided his own handy guide for guests which was great and was always on hand to help if you had any questions. He also made time for you as well which was lovely — we even hung out one evening at Lithos, a cool bar with sea views.
