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

We stayed here for a week, and I can honestly say we couldn't find fault with anything. The family who run the business could not be more friendly or helpful and made us feel so welcome. The room was cleaned to a high standard every day and all the communal areas were also extremely clean and tidy. We spent every... More

OK myself my other half and my youngest daughter stayed here for a week and had a great time. The apartment was basic but fine, the pool and bar area was great, and everything that others have already said about the family is right (very nice people). For a cheap break it is great.

The Despina apartments are a small family run complex and they are all extremely friendly and happy to help with almost any request. The room was spacious with a separate kitchen/living room area from the bedroom and a fairly roomy balcony (room 15). The only drawback is the small bathroom and very small shower (which makes showering without getting the... More
