Reviewed 23 October 2017

This is a very nice place run by a brilliant family. We were in the wellness apartments and it was really lovely. We were in room 304 which turned out to be a two bedroom on bathroom apartment and it was really spacious and cleaned continually. The staff were just marvellous. The bedding and towels were changed every other day so no complaints. Irene is just brilliant as are her brothers Gregory in the bar and Yannis also in the bar. Brilliant pool and lots of loungers. the place was immaculate, forst class and we will be back. Apparently it's that type of place once you have been you want to return, just brilliant time had by both my wife and I.

Room Tip: Room 304 is on the raised ground floor overlooking the pool just brilliant

Studio in wellness block, October 17. Warm welcome on arrival;, attractive stiudio with lovely view of pool, adequately equipped. Good shower with constant hot water, comfy bed, cleaned daily.
Attractive clean pool and bar area in pretty gardens, manned by Gregory who was unfailingly helpful and an absolute delight. The bar and kitchen area was immaculate and the unobtrusive but observant and friendly service made eating and drinking there a real pleasure.i
5 minutes gentle walk from the lovely beach which is backed.by a variety of excellent tavernas offering spectacular sunset views.
Can't wait to return.

We had a lovely holiday here but disappointed when we arrived after midnight we didn't know where our room was the lady from the supermarket next door came to look for us as everything was in darkness . She looked with her torch to see our name on the window of the reception and took us to our room over the road where we couldn't find the key it was a card stuck with sellotape on top of the door but seeing as all the lights were off we couldn't see it . The room. Was nice and got cleaned every day which was nice . The pool was lovely just too many sun beds next to each other found it difficult to sit on them , but the staff there were very friendly and the food was lovely , just be careful to take a torch if arriving late

Arrived at the apartments to be greeted by the friendly Irene, we went thru check in, paid for air con and a safe and were told the apartments were over the road. We were on the second floor on the road side of the block, I was a bit nervous at this stage as some reviews were not good. I had no reason to fear, the wife liked it! It was basic (reflected in the price) it had a shower, toilet and basin. We asked for twin beds, which were firm with single pillows and comfortable.
The kitchen area had twin hob, sink, fridge, electric kettle and the usual cutlery and crockery. We did buy new mugs as we like a good cuppa and the cups supplied were a bit small.
There was plenty of wardrobe space ,bedside tables with drawers, good lighting and a hair dryer.
The balcony had a sea view (in the distance) with two chairs and a table and looked out onto the road (which was good in the evening for pre dinner drinkies and a bit of people watching as they sauntered into the high street) it could be noisy with motor bikes and scooters going past but it didnt bother us. You could also see the balconies of the apartments over the road and of your neighbours, so if privacy is what your after dont choose them.
The pool and bar restaurant was in a beautiful setting, the pool was deep and a bit chilly with a little fenced off area for kiddies. The bar prices were average for the area, 3.50 euros for a pint of lager and 5 euros for spirits. We like a Baileys to finish off the evening ,at 5 euros a pop they were a bit expensive as they were small measures (we got a bottle from the local supermarket for 20 euros )
The food at the restaurant was a reasonable price and quality and was ok for a lunch time snack.
The staff in the restaurant were great, Gregor the owner (and brother of Irene) and Alex were very friendly and when we left it was like saying goodbye to friends.
The local area had several nice restaurants, Sebastions (Gregors cousin) was really nice with great service and prices, food was lovely and you have to book or you wont get in! There are several local supermarkets and the staff are friendly too.
On the front by the beach there was "Sea Breeze" and "The Ark" which had a lovely view of the sunset. Romantica looked lively with Greek dancing and seemed popular. Beach was nice, with beds and parasols and if you ate at the local restaurant/ bars they were free!
The resort is at the bottom of a steep hill and if you struggle walking is not ideal. Its lovely for couples seeking a relaxing holiday but not really for youngsters looking for Kavos style bars etc.
We will defo go back to Irenes, the rooms on the ground floor are below road level but anything from the first floor up looked good to me.

Room Tip: any room restaraunt/pool side of the road is good, the Spa rooms looked very nice, people who have...
