First impression - lovely, great location - just across the road from the beach, large pool, two snackbars and a restaurant looked lovely and relaxing.
Room 107 - Very spacious, very clean, lovely covered balcony with seaview. Plenty of storage space, kettle and hob. All cutlery and plates were very very clean which made me happy! The room was basic but perfect... with very needed aircon.
Some of the walls were very thin. I say some as I didn't hear anything from one side, but heard everything from the other which was annoying. We could hear - a family with very noisy children slamming doors and arguing. I could even hear the vibration on our neighbours phone alarm clock, and the aircon being switched on, thats how thin the walls were,
Staff - very warm and friendly. The main waiter staff at the snack bar do not understand vegetarian so make sure you are clear on what you want to eat and they will accomodate your needs. Cheese sandwich will include ham otherwise ;)
They do not have an iron! they don't have one to even hire!! Very disappointing
The key is welded onto the keyfob (for the electricity) to prevent you from leaving on the aircon when you leave the room. This means that if theres two of you, you always have to listen out for the door if one of you goes out. I didnt like the rules 'no visitors are allowed in the rooms, only residents' it made me wonder what type of place was I staying in for them to make this a rule!
Valtos beach directly infront of the studios is slightly shingly but not at all bad. There's plenty of watersports and sun loungers with space. The water is lovely and clear... and as the forums mention, there are little fish that want to have a nibble at you, but not in a scary way.
Two supermarkets just to the right. One next to Tango Club Hotel, one a bit further round... I would advise getting a water Taxi or walking to eat out rather than eating at the Tango Club as we did, plenty of cleaner, lovely places further out.
It is very safe and manageable to walk upto the castle, day or night. The water taxis do run all day until midnight (with a break around 2-3pm) and are 2euros per person, bargain!
Just past the castle you will find winding streets down to the harbour full of bars and restaurants.
