“wonderful holiday location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2008

We have just arrived home from two weeks at these apartments and felt moved to write a review. The apartments are surprisingly large and well set up. The kitchen ,although supplied with the regulation two ring electric hob, is also equipped with a reasonable sized oven/ grill, a standard fridge with freezer compartment, electric kettle,sandwich toaster and more than the usual amount of pots, pans and kitchen/ dining utensils although ours did lack a tin opener.
The living space is large and contains a dining table and chairs, coffee table, bed settee and a t.v.This lead out to a large balcony with four chairs, large dining table and parasol.
The bedroom has twin beds, a fantastic amount of wardrobe and drawer space and a 20inch flat screen t.v.This room also allows access to the balcony.
The bathroom is spacious, well equipped and even contains a bath with more than enough hot water to fill it when ever you want.
The views from our balcony were beautiful although a little landscaping to the immediate area would'nt hurt.
The wonderful views from these apartments is reflected in the distance they are from Pythagorio.(It took 25 minutes for two semi fit 50 somethings to walk DOWN to Pythagorio) and cost 5 euros for a taxi up(never walked back).We hired a car for a good portion of the holiday which negated this problem. The position, however, meant plenty of peace and quiet.
The pool area is large and lovely. There are plenty of available sun beds and parasols and wonderful views.However, there is no pool bar and the hotel bar closes at 3o'clock. On arrival we were given a set of phone numbers in case of emergencies but were generally left to our own devises.
The standards of service and cleanliness were excellent with clean bedding,towels and overall cleaning every day.
The apartment owner also has a taverna in town and we were given 10% discount whenever we visited. The service and food was good but did'nt save us much money.
Breakfast was available to buy, if requested the day before and was good value for money.
If what you want is a "pool bar" atmosphere this may not be the place for you. If, however, you want a peaceful, clean and spacious apartment away from the town centre hubbub, this can't fail you.

The location was great, the hotel was very clean, the owner was a control freek and worried about his wifes tan rather than the problems with the pool and the enjoyment of his guests .My daughter's hair along with 5 other guests and clothing all turn green. we complained to Thomsons who did and still have done nothing, he confronted guests who never visited his taverna at the port and became quite aggressive if thyey did'nt before the end of there 14 days, and as for the Thomsons rep, Lord Lucan would have been easier to find. Shame great location and great freindly Island
