We just love Pandora apts, they are very clean and comfortable and with in minutes of the beach and very good eating places.
Situated in a lovely friendly village
Mary Botsis is very helpful and caring and attends to all our needs very well.
We can not praise pandora enough and would recommend it to everyone.
Got some nice videos of Pandora but can't find a place to put videos on?.
Will be returning with our family next year.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

Another excellent holiday in messonghi. This is the second time we have stayed in pandora apartments, this time we went there to get married and mary & christos couldn't do enough to help us Mary even translated the ceremony for us and put a bottle of champagne on chill in the room for when we got back. Appatments are just what you need on a self catering holiday. Pool is lovely and no fighting for a sun lounger. All amenity's very close, restaurants with excelent food and very cheap prices. Can't wait for our next visit. Maybe for our first anniversary next year. :)

If you're reading this, you're probably looking to find out about these apartments, so let me get started.
A 40 yard private drive past the olive trees leads you to the orange trees at the front of the building where your apartment will either be on the ground or second floor. Continuing outside for a moment and four steps lead you to the private swimming pool (for residence use only). By the pool you will find comfortable beds and sunshade umbrellas for your use, at no additional charge. Beyond the blue pool, the Messonghi river passes the apartments, where if you're lucky you will see the resident kingfishers, their striking blue a joy to see.
The apartments themselves are kept beautifully clean and each contains two single beds ( push them together if you want) wardrobe and dressing table with sufficient storage for your clothes. There is a small two ring hob if you need to do any cooking, but to be honest the local restraunt's and all good and cheap enough. The tiled bathroom has a toilet, sink and wet room style shower.
Your private balcony at the back of the apartment over looks the passing river.
This is a private, family run business with Mary & Christos making you very welcome and in regular attendance should you need any help or advice.
So to sum up.
Would I return to these apartments for a holiday in the future ?
Dear reader, I've been coming here for over twenty years and fully intend to keep visiting.
At present Pandora charms are very fashionable. Make sure you don't miss the charm of this Pandora !

This was our first visit to the apartments and to be honest we would go back only if the the price was lower or improvements were made to modernise the property. They are very very very basic apartments with not a lot of self catering equipment. You would struggle to cook soup in there due to the lack of space and equipment. The bathroom has no ventilation and you cant open the window due to the amount of bugs etc that could fly in. This meant that it became very hot and rather smelly in there.Oh and dont expect your toilet roll to be replaced either! The main living/sleeping area had three single beds and a dressing table. The only good things i can think of about the apartments are the fact they are fully air conditioned and were cleaned to a high standard even if it was only every other day.
The front door to the property was also very stiff and every day i had to shoulder barge the door to get in! Ok for me at the age of 27 but imagine a pensioner having to do that?

The thing I did enjoy most about the over priced 2 week stay was the fact the pool was never busy and you didn't have to fight for a sun bed like most pools on holiday, Also you were able to take your own food and drinks by the pool and pretty much do what you wanted. The only downside to the pool is at around 5pm you would get a really awful eggy smell coming from the river just next to it but it's nature and not really anybody's fault.

The only thing that really annoyed us both was that I had rang up Mary (proprietor) twice before we flew out to the apartments to just check the price to pay when we arrived. Both times she explained that she didn't have her paper work on her but the price i said sounded correct. Two days into our holiday we had to pay an extra 70 euros because she ''mis-calculated'' the amount. We paid it without much argument and after doing my sums back at home she was correct. A little organisation wouldn't go a miss!!

Having said that the owners Mary and Christos are great. Nothing is too much trouble and Mary especially will organise anything you want, Boat trips, taxis, etc etc if you walk down to her office in the evening for a chat or to book excursions you will get offered a drink and there are also Safety deposit boxes there to use free of charge.

So in a nutshell

Expensive for what you get

Clean

Friendly

Good pool

Lovely owners

And Messonghi is a great place to visit

would i go back?... Yes I proberbly would if the price was right or it was refurbished to a standard of the amount they were asking.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room over looking the river and the pool

2nd visit to Pandora Apartments and I hope it won't be the last...what a delightful place. The resort is full of charm and hospitality that the Greeks do so well. The owners Mary and Christos just can't do enough for you, they were their usual charming selves. Not only do they keep the apartments immaculately clean, but if you want to go on a trip, hire a car/scooter or just laze on the beach look no further they will arrange it all for you, absolutely nothing is too much trouble for two wonderful hosts.
For a typical Greek beach holiday Pandora Apartments takes some beating !!
