On the whole a positive experience of this accomodation. It is a friendly family run establishment. It is currently used by Thomson and has mainly British holidaymakers staying there.
Whilst it is self-catering the owners provide a range of bar snacks which were popular. It has a pool area with enough sunbeds to meet demand. The pool could have been cleaner but this may be because the "poolside shower" is not poolside!
Air-con (very efficient unit) and safe hire were reasonably priced as extras. Also, a very well stocked book library. A supermarket and a bakery are less than 5 minutes walk away. Whilst the town centre (agora) is a 15 minute walk there are many excellent tabernas and bars nearby.
Also, on the last day you can put your luggage on the coach and walk to the ferryport, which is 5 minutes away.
The only real disappointment was the room although it was cleaned daily. The toilet/wash area consisted of a toilet at an angle to accomodate the shower tray which meant that you had to contort yourself to go to the toilet to avoid putting one foot in the tray or pressing against the wash basin. To have a shower, because there was no shower curtain, you had to lift the toilet seat and move the toilet roll to prevent the getting wet, and afterwards use the "Jaycloths" we brought to mop up the pool of water on the floor of the now windowless steamroom. The bed was also very hard but the balcony was nice.
We've been to Greece 5 times together and both of us many more times previously. Whilst inter-railing in 1990 I stayed in a room in Corfu Town that was serviced by a "squat toilet" therefore I have no issue with the toilet paper situation. However, when you are paying the prices per person now charged it is no longer the case to say "it's Greece what do you expect?". We stayed in Stoupa last year and the bathroom there was better than mine at home at a cheaper room rate.
Finally, do not be put off by my little rant although other reviews do mention the same problem, however overall the positives outweigh the negatives.
