We were self catering, I expected more that a hot plate, big soup pan, toaster and kettle. But I'm told that's typical in Greece. Family run but the manager was very abrupt perhaps didn't like dealing with a woman. Never even said good bye or ask if we had a good holiday. Air conditioning wasnt any good and pipe came...

Overall you get what you pay for, although the apartments were dated the where exceptionally clean, a family owned business with Mama in charge.

This is our second visit to Sweet Memory Apartments, and we were not disappointed again. Its a family run business and so has those little touches that close care brings.
