Firstly I'd like to say that these apartments should not be confused with the Denny's Inn or Dennis I & II apartments. These other two accomodations are further down the road towards the beach.
Denny Apartments are set just back from the main road, behind the Denise Supermarket - opposite the Drunk Corner and Cronulla Hotel. They are next to the Scorpio Bar and pool.(We used this pool everyday - no charge, they only ask you use the bar for drinks and food, reasonably priced and they do a good Greek salad)
There are 14 rooms at Denny Apartments and they are very, very basic. Pretty much what we expected, after paying so little for the holiday. There is a full size fridge, kettle, sink and a two ring mini cooker, crockery, cutlery and a few pans. We didn't use any of the kitchen equipment apart from the fridge. The bathroom has WC, sink, mirror and shower tray. The shower is not conected to the wall and you have to hold the shower head (trying not to soak the toilet roll) We expected this having stayed in basic apartments in Greece before, and you do get used to it! As usual in Greece loo paper goes in the bin, not down the toilet.
We had two single beds pushed together - some other guests had three beds in the one room which would be a nightmare as the rooms are not big enough to accomodate three beds! The linen was changed three times in a fortnight, however the beds were comfortable and the apartment on the whole was very clean. Towels where changes every three days and they were lovely,fluffy, clean and white - I was quite impressed with them. The owner Denise was a nice woman - some people will find her over bearing and she will come into your apartment and turn off lights,fans etc while you are out, but she did tell us that when we first arrived. There is no air-con and the fan only blew the hot air around, making sleeping very uncomfortable. By the end of our two weeks the weather had cooled off at night - thank god! At least we got some sleep. Hire of safety deposit box and fan cost us 60 Euros for the fortnight.
Kalamaki is your typical tourist town - to me it has no sole. Plenty of bars and a few good restaurants - avoid 'Heaven's Kitchen', the place was full everynight (why???) The food and service was really bad and well over priced.
Try 'Spagettomania' or the grill next door (forget what the name is) we ate there three times and the staff, food and prices were excellent.
We had a meal in the 'Olive Tree', but again the food was average and not worth the money.
Plus point - Kalimaki does not have any MacDonalds, KFC and the like - which is a good thing, but the bars all cater for the 'British' and show football ever night - Bah!!!...again why???
The bars all have the music turned down at midnight - or the doors closed.
Try 'Melon' Cocktail bar - the Australian waitress was really nice and the barman is a real charatcter. Also 'Therapia' was an excellent place for a cocktail or two. The Scottish waiter is a really nice guy.
(Pint of Mythos and cocktails are approx 2 euro each in most of the bars in Kalamaki)
If you area a beach person (as we are) then you will be disapointed - it's not nice! Fag ends all over the narrow beach - Ugh! Needless to say we never went down there again after the first visit - that's how bad the beach is!
All in all - You get what you pay for!!!!
