I feel compelled to write this comment after reading Jayne's review - attention that is given, is genuine and warm hearted and I was quite taken a back with the comments that she made.
Visited Despina in August 2010, with my daughter and grandchild. Booked last minute and was very happy. My only complaint was there was no air conditioning - fans facilitated were a blessing. The room which we stayed in was basic, very clean and cleaned daily. The apartments are family run and you are made very welcome by all.
We spent most days by the pool where food and drink is available at a very reasonable price. The beach is a 5 minute walk away, along the way is a reasonably priced supermarket run by a lovely family. The beach is clean and breezy, you will be charged for sunbeds and umbrella around 7.50 E. Days around the poolside are relaxing and most of the time we had the pool to ourselves - perfect.
If you want a inexpensive place to stay then visit Despina, don't expect 5* accomodation - however you will be looked after in true Greek style.
I enjoyed Gouves peaceful atompsphere, so much so I have just rebooked and can't wait til May 10 when I will return.
The beach is a 5 minute walk away., along the way is a supermarket and a handful of taverna's.
