It all depends on your expectations. If you are travelling to a hot Mediterannean island on a budget holiday, your expectations should not be great. We spent a week in Apartment 26 at the end of August and had a great holiday. My overwhelming memory was our welcome - "I am Stavros - welcome to my hotel". During our stay we spoke to Stavros on many occasions - we found him a perfect host and were impressed by his modest establishment.
True, the apartment on two levels was not quite as lavish as a duplex suite at the Landmark in London. But the cost by comparison was tiny, The apartment met our expectations - we found it clean and functional. All the plumbing and the electrics worked perfectly. True, it was very hot by day and by night, and the airconditioning available only in the bedroom might have enhanced our modest comfort. With careful use of the ventilation system, we had a very pleasant stay here and enjoyed Stavros's hospitality to the degree that we would certainly stay there again Sui who ran all the catering was excellent.
Standards vary from country to country and travellers should make appropriate allowance, especially in hot climates.
Bougaunvillea Hotel served our purpose perfectly - a modest place to stay to explore a new destination. The swimming pool was adequate and clean.
Well done, Stavros!
