We booked this through Thomson holidays, and specifically asked for upstairs apartment, overlooking the pool, which was exactly what we got. Staff very friendly and helpful throughout, and the apartment itself was exactly as advertised. The apartments are pretty centrally placed, only about half a mile from the tomb of the kings ( fascinating) and about ten minutes from the beach and the sister hotel where we quite often went for a drink to watch the spectacular sunsets. The only complaint is the Damon apartment breakfasts were average - there was insufficient variety of fruit, everyday tinned pineapple alternated with tinned peaches and a few dry looking apples, and bananas. ( The town market offered a huge range of delightful fresh fruit...why was some of that not on offer? ) Coffee was not great either, sadly and the "fresh" orange tasted very chemical. Still, you can overlook that somewhat when sitting in the sun!
The local bus service to and from was very good 1.50euros anywhere basically, and frequent. We ate out every day so here are 3 recommendations.
First, for an excellent salad at lunch, The Moorings at the harbour ( 6/7 euros ) with a delightful view out to sea, friendly staff etc. ( Not quite so convinced about the evening meal though...) Secondly, just close by Damon, about 300 yards down the Tomb of the Kings Road, opposite a bank is Zorbas, which offers set menus inc wine from 12 - 15 euros pp. Terrific value, great service lovely people. We ate there twice. Thirdly, going the other way towards Tomb of the Kings on the same side, just past some strange looking place called Fat Mamas, is a delightful traditional tavern called Zeus. Excellent food, lovely staff, really good value.
Overall a good holiday, good value, interesting stuff to see and lots of lovely warm sunshine.
