We first thought that our stay at the Artemis had been quite nice. It is a family run place, and during the week we spent there mid-august it was quiet and we had a good stay. It was nice and clean when we arrived, even though the room was small and old-furnitured. During the week we only got the room properly cleaned once, where they changed the sheets and some of the towels. They did forget to give us more toilet paper and after having to ask for more twice, we couldn't bother to keep asking so we bought a few rolls that lasted us for the week.
Our last they we checked out but decided to spend the day by the pool since our transfer wasn't suppose to pick us up until 8 the same night. After maybe 30 minutes by the pool, the cleaning lady comes up to us with one of the our face towels which had make-up on it from washing our faces. She held it up and started having a go at us, claiming that we ruined the towel and that the make-up wouldn't come off. She had us pay 10 euros for it and walked away. When I saw the mother in the family coming back, I went up and asked for a receipt for the towel so I could have some proof of the accident. She then started accusing me of ruing her brand new towel, and asked her son to take picture of it before giving it and the receipt to me. I told her what I thought about it and the lack of cleaning and went back to the poolside. She then went to the cleaning lady to tell her we've complained about the cleaning so she came over to us again, and started asking why we had a problem with her and her cleaning. And all of this in front of the other 10 or so guest at the pool.
I know the Greek economy is bad, but 10 euros for a towel ?! And ever heard of a washing mashine ?! I've only washed that towel once, and I can tell you it looks brand new !
So even though the main part of our week was good, the way they treated us that last day totally ruined the stay for us and wouldn't recommend anyone to stay at this hotel because of the way they treat their guest.
It is also quite far away from anything, and to get to the beach you have to walk along the main road/high way and cross another busy street. It was a bit of a hike.
