We stayed here in September 2013 (bit late with the review), and i can honestly say the location is stunning. We stayed in one of the round huts and had a fabulous view of olive and cypress trees over the Chrissa plain towards the gulf of Corinth and the small town of Itea in the distance. The huts were prefectly functional with comfortable beds, clean bed linen, and equipped with a fridge and stove top. There are tables and chairs outside so you can eat whilst taking in the view. The huts also have mosquito blinds which roll up and down, so you're able to sleep with the windows open in hot, Summer months. We were booked in for breakfast, but we woke up too late so can't comment on the quality. The owners were friendly, and spoke excellent English.
The swimming pool has probably the best view of any swimming pool in the world, the view is just staggeringly beautiful. It's equipped with sun loungers and tables and chairs, and also has a small, shallow pool for the little ones. It's also impeccably clean.
There is a small shop on site for essentials, but if you need anything else, head for Itea or nearby Amphissa. We did, unfortunately come across a kid lurking outside the supermarket in Amphissa who was following people around trying to pick pockets -- also another in Itea, so be wary, and carry your wallet in your front pocket or keep your handbag across your body.
There is a beautiful restaurant in nearby Arachova with a spring outside; it's on the main road into Arachova. The Moussaka was excellent, as was the ambience, and the locals use it which is always a good sign. When visiting the sanctuary at Delphi, try to get there early to beat the day trippers. If you get there at opening time, you'll have the place to yourself for a couple of hours. Take bottled water with you, as the heat can be itense, although they now provide bottled water from vending machines at only 35 cents per bottle which was welcome.
