However I was quite disappointed with room 20 as it did not live up to the room reviews on Trip Advisor. The kitchen and bathroom facilities... More

We have stayed at these apartments many times since 2002 and they are clean and well run. With air conditioning. We booked for the 12th - 23rd September and arrived at around 8:30 in the evening. We were greeted by Kosta who saw us to our apartment. The apartments and Kon Dim Ar Cafe Bar are run by three brothers... More

only stayed for an afternoon due to needing a room to shower before flight but was impressed. Very nice people run the apartments and room was spotless, although i would prefer to try the upper floor rooms next time. great cocktail bar at front in the evenings. Worth trying.

Will definitely go again! Maybe this summer too! Everything was beautiful! The place, the rooms, the location, the bar, the pool, the brothers and their service, the cocktails, the snacks... But most of all the chilling atmosphere... You didnt want to go somewhere else!!!

Despina Apartments in Kato Goves are fantastic. Family run. Very clean and comfortable. Lovely pool to swim in with sun loungers also. An ideal location for quiet and restful holidays within a short distance walk along the beach to the main strip with tavernas too. Also a short walk up to the main road for Public Transport. Supermarket situated next... More
