We were self catering, I expected more that a hot plate, big soup pan, toaster and kettle. But I'm told that's typical in Greece. Family run but the manager was very abrupt perhaps didn't like dealing with a woman. Never even said good bye or ask if we had a good holiday. Air conditioning wasnt any good and pipe came...

Overall you get what you pay for, although the apartments were dated the where exceptionally clean, a family owned business with Mama in charge. They were extremely friendly people and inviting and very helpful. What more could you ask when on a budget holiday. The most important part of the holiday for us were the views of the sea and...

As I had paid for an upgraded room, I went straight back to reception where I was told that I had been "ripped off" by my travel company (Yet to be confirmed). This was the only available room, so no option. We were offered a change...

This is our second visit to Sweet Memory Apartments, and we were not disappointed again. Its a family run business and so has those little touches that close care brings. The apartments are spotless, well located at the beachfront, and have a fantastic restaurant on site, where the food is first class, from Local Greek Dishes to Sushi. And the...

The most relaxing holiday we've ever had. We wanted peace and quiet away from the crowded all inclusive scene and that's what we got. A very warm welcome from Mama and shown to our apartment - no formal tedious check-in process. The apartment was very clean and spacious, lovely king size bed, We chose half board and were not disappointed....

From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome by everyone. This family run apartment and restaurant to the front (votsalo) is quite simply an excellent place for a family holiday. The 2 bedroom apartment we had was clean, airy and spacious. Waking up to a sea breathe and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach really...
