Walking into our room we were very exciting to see what seemed like a nice apartment for the week, and the location was great, right on the beach. But as we began settling in we realized that there were NO bathroom or and very minimal kitchen amenities included. We had to go out and buy toilet paper and a towel for the bathroom sink, kitchen napkins, salt, dishsoap, and many other items that should be included in an apartment. And the supplies they did provide for the kitchen could not have been sanitary because they were very old and you could see black buildup (even after cleaning) on the them. The bedroom was okay, but the sheets could have been cleaned properly we found some spots on them. Once we got everything cleaned with all the supplies we bought we thought that we had everything under control until we noticed the ant infestation coming from the balcony and under the kitchen sink. We told the owner about this and she did absolutely nothing about it, even after we told her we went out to the store to buy bug spray and that they kept coming back. Another issue with the service was that towels were only changed three times on our entire trip there, and they were done on her time (which was not often since she took most of the afternoon off). DO NOT use their washer and dryer it is a complete rip off, 4 euros for each, and the dryer did not even work our clothes were still drenched and she did not care! AND BEWARE THE AIR CONDITIONED IS NOT INCLUDED, we had to pay extra for it, which was a certain rate per kilowat. On the website it does say that it is included, but that is a lie. The owner was somewhat nice to us in the beginning, but became very rude and took advantage of us and tried to hussle us to pay for everything as an "extra". We met other people staying there also and they had complained about the same thing.
On a good note, the location was great, but there were many other hotels around us.
