Reviewed 28 July 2008

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Castello Apartments.. The apartments themselves are nice and clean but a little small and the bed situation isn't ideal... Myself and my boyfriend had to spend the week in seperate beds that were stuck to the wall so you couldn't even move them to make a double, not that there'd be much room to do so... The beds themselves were quite comfortable but the pillows were horribly hard and thin.. Small fridge and 2 ring hob for cooking, utensils a plenty for 2 of us, no toaster which was a shame.. On arrival we were told we had to pay €50 for the week for the airconditioning and € 20 for the safety deposit box (non-refundable).. We didn't really have a choice as there is no fan in the room and the temperature was in the 30s so it was unbearable without... Our airconditioning didn't work so the owner (who is very nice) gave us 2 fans to use, not great as they just blew the hot air around the room... As we were only there for 1 week, we arrived on the Saturday morning and on the Wednesday afternoon our airconditioning was fixed. Naturally enough we asked the owner for a refund as we paid for the week but only got 2 and a half days worth.. He was very reluctant to give us anything back and told us that we would have to pay for the fans that he gave us... Reluctantly he gave us back € 25.. The location of the apartments is amazing - about a 5 minute walk to the beach and about the same to the strip with bars & restaurants. No swimming pool but you have the use of the pool in the hotel across the road, we never used it as we were so close to the beach we didn't need to.... The block of apartments was pretty quiet, you could hear the odd person coming back in the early hours but that was fine as there weren't a lot of groups there.... All in all once the airconditioning problem was fixed the apartments were okay.. Personally though I won't be rushing back!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
CASTELLO apartments are built on the coastal road and in just 80 m far from the sandy beach which is right in front of us in the PARADISE settlement, well known as FRANGOCASTELLO.The name was established by the existence of the impressive Venetian Fortress which dominates the whole region not only for its history but also for the legends that follow it (for heroes, fatal battles, Drossoulites e.t.c.).Therefore, the apartments’ name was given to celebrate the existence of the fortress which indeed is not more than 450 meters far from us.As far as architecture is concerned, we have made in our building a small and characteristic copy of the fortress’ turrets.Our unit started with the construction of three apartments as a holiday home for the owner and his two children.Over a few years, the love and the interest that our visitors expressed for our region imposed the addition of more apartments and therefore their tourist exploitation.Thus, today we have a total of 8 apartments of various types for our guests.Although the apartments are relatively new in their construction, with our participation in two European programs, we renovated, modernized and customized them to fit the demands of a small but completely hospitable unit for foreigners and local guests.The apartments are build in a fenced area of 5000 m2 – especially made for total protection of little children – full of big decorative trees and a stunning variety of flowers. ... more   less
