We stayed at a one bedroom apartment on the 1st floor for a week. The view from the balcony was great (especially the sunset) but felt the many other things let it down.
We arrived on a Sunday and had to pick up the keys from the Central Hotel which was on the other side of town. When picking up the keys, they insisted on a €100 cash deposit, even after taking my credit card. This wasn't explained and was unexpected. After picking up the keys we had to take a taxi to the apartment which cost €20!
The apartment was clean but showing age and some previous damp problems in some corners and part of the ceiling. There wasn't an iron or ironing board although did have facilities to hang washing etc. There wasn't an electric kettle either or any kind of kettle. We couldn't heat anything on the first night as the gas ran out after about 2 minutes, so no means to heat water or have anything hot.
There is a bell tower very close to the apartment and the bells ring on the hour, half hour, and quarter after and to the hour between 5am and midnight! The walls are very thin as we can hear all noises (kids running, people talking, chairs scrapping etc) from all the other apartments. Balcony is only big enough for 2 plastic chairs and the bathroom could do with more hooks and shelving.
The apartment is in a quieter part of town and about 10 mins walk to the main square. And it was nice to escape the main tourist bits and enjoy the sea and sunset at the end of the day.
