Very spacious apartments. When we arrived rooms weren't ready. We were eventually put in room 12, the "patio" was overrun with large brown caterpillars. Patio has three concrete walls and concrete roof, no sun, couldn't sit out because of caterpillars. Complained to rep who told us complex full but we could change rooms for week 2. George the owner not very helpful, called us Number One Complainers. Bedroom door handle broken, you couldn't shut door or you'd be locked in (happened to previous guest), George promised to fix it same day - still not done when we swapped rooms. Promised to spray caterpillars in two days time but they didn't move them until our last day in room. For second week we were put in room 16 which overlooks the pool and has lovely view of marine and Turkey.
George and staff very odd if you ask them to ring a taxi, first time the girt said she had no taxi number and would have to rign the owner, another girl had to ring George to tell him we'd asked her to ring a taxi and they had a discussion about it but still didn't ring us a taxi so we eventually walked into town (only needed taxi due to twisted ankle). On one occasion George insisted on taking us to town for three euros but dropped us off halfway down so we might as well have paid the 6 euros for taxi and had a pleasant driver take us into the resort centre. Last day apartment door slammed shut in the wind with our key on the inside, reported it to reception, girl rang George and then came out to tell us George would arrange for someone to fix it but didn't know how long we'd have to wait and WE WOULD HAVE TO PAY, kicked off and George eventually rolled up and sorted it out himself. Nearly every time you spoke to him he would just disagree and argue - horrible man.
Apartments very spacious and comfortable, pool hardly ever used, pool bar never open, main bar sometimes open but if you ask for a spirit with mixer they disappear with the bottle of spirits and come back ten minutes later with your drink.
Pythagoria good base for holiday on Samos, boat trips good fun with Captains Gerasimo & Iannis who have lots of "ouzo time" when everyone drinks loads of ouzo and tries syrtaki dancing on board, restaurants all good, Psili Amos is nearest and best sandy beach.
Santa Catherina Apartments would be much improved by having a new owner or if George put a friendly manager in, he is definitely not a good host.
