We came in June for one week with my wife, son and daughter in law and our four grandchildren, the welcome was like coming home as owners George and Dimitri are so welcoming to the guest, the go that extra mile to make your welcome special. The accomodation was spotlessly clean and linen and towels changed more times than you would get in a five star hotel. The housekeeper is the best at making sure the complex is kept to a high standard and is so hard working . The family wants to come again next year and we could not wait to come back that on the 9th September we decided that myself and the wife would come again for two weeks, which we really enjoyed the feeling of coming home to the Villa Ritsa. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting not only value for money but a place to totally chill out.

This was our 1st time of booking a flight only and the Ritsa. After we had booked I read the reviews and worried about it until we got there. but i should't have, we had the most warmest welcome we have ever had. Our 4 children were made to feel that nothing was to much and George and his dad Dimitri were wonderful with them. Our apartments were spacious and clean, our bins were emptied everyday and bed linen was frequently changed. The pool was a lovely size and has a seperate part for little ones and most of all it was clean and tidy. We will be going back as we all loved it :-)

Just came back from a two-week holiday. We stayed at the Villa Ritsa and it was really great. Our apartment was very big for the three of us and it was really clean and tidy. We had our bin emptied every day and the areas around the pool where really clean and tidy. To be honest, I didn't know why people had such problems in the reviews about cleaning of the rooms, but found out that the cleaning staff of 2009 were really bad and were fired. So, this year, it was really clean, so do not hesitate to book with this hotel. Also, it is about 3 minutes walking from the beach and about 100 meters from a mini market. George and his father are really friendly and make you feel at home. Honestly, definitely, coming back!

hi there i just arrived home from the ritsa !!
the pool was very disgusting as in thick scum round the edges ,when i complianed to thhe rep he went straight in and spoke to george ,then came back out to me
apparently it was cream from sun tan lotion off everyones bodies (thats not rocket science )but the kids were all writing messages on the top tiles above pool level.
i have taken pics of this and wil upload them prob . tomorrow.if george decided to get up of his chair and switch internet off then he would prob. be more hospitable .maybe because we complained he took a dislike ?? i dont know ! if havving a drink in bar u had to clear your own glasses back either that they stayed put .

the rooms were spacious .but werent cleaned regular ,as we had new linen once in 2 weeks and our bins were emptied once out the fortnight also, we never ate there so i cant comment on that
ive been to stalis 7 times and this is by far the worst accomodation i ever stayed at
if they just took at bit of pride in thier apartments and were a bit more helpful it could be nice as the apartments were pleasant enough. just not cleaned !!!!!!

a must is going to robin hoods and the golden beach try them both fantastic also the best part of the beach is down the side of rousakis supermarket on the beach road very well kept
