We returned from 2weeks staying here on 20 sept (having stayed last year too). The pool area is lovely by day- v nice beds& cushions, the clearest cleanest pool water (fresh from the Well on site), with a shaded area to eat&/or drink. At night the fountain & pretty lights make for a nice backdrop to sit & ear or drink cocktails & possibly have a dance!
Don't be put off by the bright yellow signage (it does look a bit Benidorm), and actually doesn't, in my opinion give the right image for the actual class if the place. It suggests beer swilling cheap drinks- where in fact the food is brilliant & drinks priced as everywhere else. The indoor area (although 'sportsy' is large,cool and friendly). Late at night you can create a lovely party atmosphere in there with fellow guests - but no noise for other guests).
Kim (English lady), works mornings & serves breakfast (can't get better anywhere!)
Joanna (Greek girl), worked late afternoons-nights. She worked v hard- immediately tidying up the pool area, sweeping etc after the sunbathers left, ready for evening guests. I saw her go around to almost everyone saying hello & being friendly. Her English was v good, and we had no problem making ourselves understood... I think her English was improving by the day!
Nikos & chris are great. Chris is a permanently smiley guy- not intrusive- but friendly. Loves a bit of 'banter'.
Food: it's cooked by a lovely Greek lady, it's traditional, local & plentiful. Try it!
The view from the apartments is superb. They are spotless. We had clean towels when we hadn't used the others! (Ps there was me, my hubby & 23yr old son & room was big enough)
Thanx guys for another great holiday.
See you again!
Alison (al-leeee-son!), Neil & David.xxxx
