We stayed at Muskebi at the start of Sept, the weather was hot (low to mid 30’s), but not too bad, and there was plenty of shade around the pool., plus a cooling breeze for a few days We paid for air con in our apartment and it was definitely worthwhile doing so.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly, and following our midday checkout they allowed us back into our apartment to shower after we used the pool, ready for our pick-up at 9pm, at no extra cost. Otherwise, you can pay extra for a late checkout (6pm).
We ate breakfast at the restaurant once, it was perfectly fine but the place always seemed empty and we felt a bit sorry for the chef!
The pool was great - nice and big and very cooling. There were plenty of sunloungers, umbrellas and cushions.
Our apartment was cleaned everyday which was great. The location was also good - if you turn right out of the apartments and walk to the end of the road there’s a beach - the first restaurant on the left there is very good for fresh fish. If you turn right, you can walk all along the beach until you get to Yashi (about 15mins walk) where there are lots of restaurants, and a few bars. We went to Viras twice (the 2nd time because they have us a 10% discount card after our first meal), and the food was very good.
It’s really easy to get around on the dolmus’ - just make sure you tell the driver where you’re going when you get on, especially if you’re travelling back to Muskebi, as there are various routes and sometimes you can miss the stop!
The only drawback was the 'nocturnal noise' - there were quite a few stray dogs in the area (they didn't cause any bother in the restaurants etc), but as soon as 1 started to bark, all the others joined in and it was quite a din! Also, the nearby cockerels crowed at all hours. It disrupted our sleep a number of nights, but if you've got the air con on, it isn't as loud. We mentioned the barking to our rep and she said that she wasn't aware of anyone else saying the same; maybe we're just light sleepers! There’s nothing which the apartment owners could have done to stop it, but if you’re hoping for peace and quiet, you may not always get it!
Overall, we had a great time and would definitely recommend the apartments for a relaxing break, probably more suited to couples and families rather than groups of friends looking for something a bit more ‘lively’.
