Our hotel apartment was spacious and clean, we were on the top floor and had lovely views of the sea and hills. I used the cute little kitchen quite a lot, there was sufficient equipment to cook some lovely meals using vegetables and meat from local shops and supermarkets. We could hear crickets and birds every day which was lovely. The main areas of the hotel and pool side were clean and attractive, with plenty of well looked after plants. We felt so relaxed and it felt like a home from home. Christos the manager, was always friendly and helpful regardless of what hour of the day or night. Especially helpful to us as my husband sprained a tendon and Christos made sure we got to see a doctor and were ok with taxis whenever we went out. The cleaning ladies were always polite, friendly and cheery, (we got fresh linens/towels twice a week). The food in the tavernas we ate in were very good and huge portions. I am vegetarian and it was so easy to find vegetable and pasta dishes. We visited Spiros, the Steak House and although all were very good and recommended, our favourite was Castillio set right back near the harbour on the right, situated near the Harbour supermarket that has a beautiful parrot. We found Sivota very relaxing with helpful, friendly shopkeepers. We loved the bakery with its little biscuits and bread. There are tourist shops for souvenirs and also some lovely clothes shops too. The area is very quiet and relaxing, days were spent at the small local beach, heavenly to swim in and we hired 2 sun beds for 5 euros a day. We paid 6 euros each for our hotel breakfast on the morning we left, as much as you could eat of cereal, eggs, ham, cheese, bread, fruit, cakes, tea and coffee, which I thought was good value. We spent evenings sitting in a bar watching the boats in the harbour. We also we ate out with some lovely people we met at the hotel and had plenty of time to chat to others, as well as being in our company which we both enjoyed, so we have gained some lovely memories. I would love to come and stay here again.
