My husband & I got back from Zafira Studios today [22nd Sept 2013], their were a couple of niggles as follows;
1] Water pressure was so powerful that our shower head couldn't cope, we asked for a new one but not forthcoming.
2] Sea urchins, even though I was on the so called safe side I still managed to stand on a sea urchin, so wear shoes at ALL TIMES, in the sea.
3] wasps, over which they had no control. THe local deterrent is to set Greek coffee alight, and it works.
Now the good;
Re 2 above Zaffy very kindly drove me to the local medical centre to get treatment and wouldn't accept anything for doing so.
All the staff are great, very kind [Janni can sometimes take a day or two to get used to you but after that he's fine] and helpful nothing is to much trouble.
Our studio was small but plenty big enough for us don't go expecting a fully fitted kitchen, I just managed to make toast, Greek salad and fry bacon. I was on holiday so didn't want to cook, other guests did manage more adventurous dishes.
The beds were very comfortable.
Plenty of pillows
Our studio overlooked the pool and I would think that in the height of summer, with children about, that it would be noisy.
Our balcony got the early morning sun which could be very strong but great to sit out and have breakfast on.
The maids were very good at keeping the room clean.
When we go again we will go in June and take the following with us;
A small medical kit, working on the premise if you take it you won't need it :-)
A small sharp knife
Soap dish for the bathroom.
The pool area was always kept clean and tidy, the bar prices where on a par with every where else and the bar food was very good.
As we were there at the end of the season a lot of Tavernas were winding down so didn't have full availability.
Supermarkets are well stocked and prices are good.
Back to Zafira, when getting of the transfer coach you are dropped a 5-10 min walk away but Dimitri collects your cases and takes them to the Hotel.
We thought that both the Meze night [Tuesdays] and BBQ night [Friday were good value at 8 & 10 Euro's respectively followed by a quiz. Which is prepared by ex pats that live nearby.
It is very quite and if you want night life then this is not the place for you. If you want some where very quiet and of the beaten track then it is.
Our Thomson rep [Jenny] was excellent.
We will be going again but not until 2015
