We stayed at the friendly apartments for a week and it did us OK as a "place to sleep". The directions to the place were non-existent so we did a few extra km before we found it - I had tried to get directions from the owner before our departure but with the help of a local man found the... More

I think we all will have our own views on whether or not a place is fantastic or horrendous - for me, I really enjoyed staying at Rena's. As I was with a friend we chose the 1 bed apartment which was room 208. The room was great, the living room had windows both sides which made it light and... More

Just back from a week at Rena Apartments. We were give Room 201 which is next door to the apartment used by the owners so we had to pass their washing, outdoor cupboards and table with books and ledgers lying around to get to our apartment. Room 201 was disgusting. The cooker was filthy and the cutlery drawer contained just... More

We found the location to be a wonderful place where everyone, staff and guests alike are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is very conducive to a great holiday. It's Not too far from the town where there are many cafés and taverns to eat at and beaches to enjoy. A must is a visit to the Rainbow bar where... More

We arrived on Friday 5th of September, 2014 at noon and received the room (205). Then we were told that the A/C was not working. I want to make clear that we booked and paid a room with A/C. Please consider that it is impossible to sleep without A/C, because it is incredibly hot with the windows closed and the... More

Just returned from a week at the rena apartments and we all loved it. The staff work so hard all the time, cooking, cleaning, working in the shop, making sure everyone is happy. I don't understand the complaints about the location on other reviews, it's in gouves but far enough from the shops and tavernas to be noisy. You walk... More

We arrived about 3am, and found a map/Sketch on the bar Shutter, showing where our room was located, I thought this was quiet amusing but who wants to be awake at 3am, when you have to be up at 6am, waiting for two guests. I met Rena early on the morning, couldn't sleep (over tired) she was cleaning the pool... More

Got off to a bit of a shaky start through my arrival time of 04.00am and all was locked up, but after banging around a few minutes, Rena's husband showed me to my room. The rooms are basic, but suited me fine, a small fridge and cooker were available and came in very handy. I cannot compliment the staff enough... More
