I have been to Tinos many times. The island is only a few hours from the Port of Piraeus and is ideal for a relaxing weekend. Of course, if one goes for the first time it will take more days to explore. Tinos has a town with one of the most famous churches in Greece and many Greeks go even for a day just to worship. On my most recent trip, I only stayed for the weekend.
I first learned about Aeolis Tinos Suites on social media. When I browsed their website, and as soon as I saw photos, I fell in love! They provided us with a pick-up service on our arrival to the island because the suites are located a few minutes away from the port. The hotel gave us info on the best sights of Tinos, how to rent a car and everything else we needed.
When we arrived, they guided us through and talked all about the facilities and what activities we could do on the island. The best part? While we were waiting for our suite to be ready, the staff members offered us homemade lemonade that we enjoyed by the pool with a panoramic view of the whole island of Tinos. Our first impressions were certainly good ones!
