Four of us stayed for a week (July 29th 2013) in two apartments.
The good: The location is great to get to the main strip- lots of restaurants doing great set menus and lovely Greek food for excellent prices if you are on a budget as we were.The bar staff are very friendly and the pool is quiet and hardly used by guests. George and Renil behind the bar were great-really nice guys.The bar does nice snacks- the Greek pizza was tasty and cheap.There was no problem with mozzies as we used plug in repellents and none of us were bitten at night.
The bad: The apartments have seen better days. They need a repaint, freshen up and general makeover to meet the ever demanding standards of well seasoned travellers. If you have only ever stayed in city hotels in Europe you are in for a shock! The beds are rock hard which was just about ok for me but my husband did find his really uncomfortable- yes they only do twin beds! The bathroom was not great. The shower was ok though. The curtain is presumably in case anyone injures themselves by falling through a glass shower when they have had too much to drink??? As it was an apartment we were only provided with one toilet roll and then had to buy our own- wish someone had mentioned this when we arrived as we only found out when we asked. The towels were changed once in my sisters room and twice in ours. Our sheets changed once - theirs not at all.
The ugly: the bathroom bin was changed only once by cleaning staff. The water leaked up from the drain in the bathroom and made the bath mat sopping and this was not changed after the second day. The aircon did not work so it was very hot- we slept with the balcony door open. There was a bar somewhere with 'entertainment' which was loud, annoying and with out of tune singing. This went on til about 1am.
Overall: this was 'bargain' trip but even so we paid nearly £500 each for a week (can only go high season due to work) and it felt like a lot for what we got. Having said that, we did use the pool lots and the location was great. We had a fabulous break just relaxing and took it as we found it. if you are the fussy type, take cleaning products, cloths etc spare towels, earlplugs or pay for somewhere of a better standard.
