Emilia Apartments
Reviewed 27 August 2013

These apartments are exactly as described in previous reviews. Went at the beginning of August to apartment 9. The apartment was clean but stank of smoke from the previous residents. As mentioned by others, the noise from the front of the building is very intrusive and makes sleeping difficult. We usually book properties privately and are used to having all amenities at our disposal- it was a shock to come to an apartment to find only the very basics in the way of a kitchen and utensils; a pot, a frying pan four bowls, four plates cutlery, some wooden spoons and a bread knife. Remember if staying in Emilia you need to bring all the extras; washing up liquid, pot scrubs, tin opener, tea pot and cafetiere tea towels and j cloths, and even salt and pepper.
Previous reviews have mentioned the owners- never saw them , so no idea if they are friendly or not. Sheets were changed once during our weeks stay and towels were plentiful. Avoid room 9- no balcony which was a pain. There is a shared balcony at the end of the building but this is shared by those like us with no balcony and has only enough seating for 4.
This sounds more negative than I want it to- big positive was the short walk to the village centre and the beach.

Stayed here for a week wasnt excepting anything fancy as we had read reviews saying it was clean and basic and it was, although i have to say there was alot of noise up and down the road morning and night, and as someone has already mentioned we could of closed the window but then would have had to pay for air conditioning which i dont see why we should of! Also we hardly ever seen the owners but knew they was underneath us as they had a baby crying every morning at the crack of dawn waking us up which we wasnt happy about as no one ever seem to attend to the baby.

Stayed here for two weeks and found the ground floor apartment comfortable. Even though the bedroom was at the back of the apartment there was still a lot of noise from the road running alongside. Probably could have reduced the noise by closing the windows but then we would have had to pay for air conditioning and didn't see why we should. Owners were very friendly and helped us when the Olympic rep allocated us a studio when we had paid for an one bedroom apartment although the problem was sorted it still spoilt the start of our holiday.

Room Tip: Try to avoid ground floor at front particularly room 4 which has the balcony at the front.

We enjoyed our stay at these apartments. It was basic, clean and well looked after.
There were only three drawbacks really, no balcony (shared one at end of building), slightly out of the centre up a hill which could be a problem for the less able and the size of the bathroom.
The bathroom is ok but if you're over 5'6" or a bit on the plump side you will have problems! It's tiny and I know some people have had problems using the loo (banging knees on wash basin) it's a bit of a squeeze.
However, if you want friendly service, cleanliness and a nice big lounge this will be good for you. We would definitely stay here again.

We were impressed with the stay at Emilia on the whole. The apartment we stayed in was a bit dated but very clean and tidy. The only real problem (and it wasn't much of a problem at all) is that the traffic noise can be a bit much at night, it can be quiet for an hour and then a huge great thundering truck with no exhaust will roar by and make you jump. Its not really an issue and you soon get used to it but it is worth mentioning. The lady that runs the apartment is so friendly which is a real treat these days, our flight was delayed by 6 hours and she looked after our bags, invited us into her apartment and made us cold fruit juices while we waited, considering how hot it was, we were terribly grateful for this! I would recommend the Amelia apartments for anyone looking for a a basic base on which to base a great holiday, its is only couple of minutes walk from everything in town and you wont be disappointed!
