Firstly, let me start with the good, the apartments were clean & practically came with everything you needed (except air-con) which they'd charge 50euros a week for!!! The apartment complex surrounding were well tendered & they had a really nice pool/Jacuzzi which was very child friendly. The bar served an array of drinks & food, the food was ok, nothing special. The drinks I'll touch on a little later. The location was a little way away from the main town, too far to walk, specially with kids, not exactly cheap to get a taxi, and the apartments is not situated on a bus route.
Now for the bad, Well I'd recommend ordering bottled drinks after finding maggots in my fresh orange & I found their draught beer very flat. The main reason for my poor rating of what was actually a fantastic holiday was the staff. "Maria Mitchell" Peggy's younger sister was a little OTT. She had this stereotypical cockney visard, which came which came across a little cheap but quite offensive. Every other word was "darling, love & dear". Personally I think she best suited in the Queen Vic & not the Lenaki Vic. Another annoying thing was seeing someone else who was staying at the apartments treated like dirt. This gentleman left tips almost every time he got something from the bar, but on his last day he wanted a latte which was 2.50euro, but he only had 2.45 on him & they refused to let him off with 5cents. But the worst thing was about half a hour before our transfer to the airport was due. Peggy I mean Maria came across and said "there was one towel missing from our apartment". They made us open all our luggage & stood over us whilst we had to take everything out. The whole thing joke a joke and an absolute embarrassment having to do it in front of everyone around the pool area. We proved that we hadn't packed it in any of the cases as we didn't need anymore after bringing 8 of out own from home. But this was still not good enough for them and they demanded 9Euros from us. Well it was the end of our holiday and we had no money left, so to further the embarrassment someone else staying at the apartments had to pay it for us.. After the amount of money that was spent there, and the amount of tips that were left during our 2 week stay, you'd of thought they would of let it slip and perhaps realised that it wasn't us losing that happened, and that maybe their cleaning staff had shorted us by one. There was no benefit of the doubt, just plain old demanding of the money.
To top it off, the owners mansion house is practically across the road from the apartments. It left a bitter reminder of where all our tips were going. I mean talk about gloating!!!
