Well situated close to everything that you need in a holiday resort (tourist shops as well as those selling general provisions, doctors, restaurants, beach, car hire etc) but not too close to the nightlife that would otherwise keep you up at night. Has a garden as well as a pool so the grounds don't feel claustrophobic like some places I've been to. It's a bed and breakfast, not self-catering, so don't be miffed at having to pay (an optional) 25 euros for use of the fridge for a fortnight. Mind you, the air conditioning works, even if it is another 70 euros for the fortnight.
Tip: if you don't want to shell out for aircon, you can just spend time in the comfy sofas in the lobby area, where the aircon is usually running.
The breakfast is pretty good - we weren't just eating it because it was included in the room rate - and comprises a pretty wide selection of continental and English breakfast items as well as cereals and various beverages. The only lamentable absence was the humble baked bean.
General repair is very good and the rooms are kept pretty clean. Reception are friendly and helpful, even to us non-Greek speakers.
To put it into a nutshell: we've found somewhere that works; we stayed there last year; we stayed there this year; and we'll be staying there again next year.
