Disappointed with self catering facilities,main bed had sheet on but no mattress protector. The 2 'bunks' in dining area had bare mattresses on top of hone made wooden area, this was full of ants on arrival, managed to keep them down with alcohol gel. There was no microwave, only a toaster, kettle and camping hob. The fridge had 1 bottle of complimentary water which was good, no complimentary tea, sugar, coffee etc. Could have done with a hair dryer (as was advertised) no regular cleaning, no washing up liquid or cleaning sprays, would have been helpful as needed a good gutting out. No wi-fi in or out of room. Small balcony. View of building. No usable garden,see pic 1, garden view from balcony.pic 2, balcony. Pic 3, view from balcony.

Response from Yannis Papadakis, General Manager at Sweet Memory Apartments
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear Mrs. Angela, Thank you so much for your review. You have visited us during a very difficult time with Covid-19 being on top of our heads. However, there had been a protocol of how will be operating since May 2020. In that protocol, we have been explaining how things will be at our apartments based on Greek Laws and regulations as well as followig and implementing health protocols. There are no mattress protectors and the reason is that we clean the mattresses with a steamer every time people check out. The Wood on the "bunks" as you called them is proper plywood installed by professionals. Their no microwave in any of our apartments, we do not advertise it as well. No complimentary tea or sugar or any other items because of health protocols. A hairdryer is available upon request. we do not leave them a the apartment because people pack them by mistake. You could have asked for it every time you were asking us to take your garbage bags out of the apartment, even though that was your job as of staying at Self Catering. We do not provide any cleaning products because we do clean the apartments on regular basis. this season and based on government health protocols we were allowed to enter the apartment and clean it every 3rd day. I can go on and on but I believe there is no use to that. You have booked a self-catering apartment for a ridiculous price which was justified in the description sent to the tour operators on what we will be providing and how we will be operating. I am very sorry for not fulfill your needs during your stay.

My first thoughts on arrival where oh dear, looks run down and had no name outside to confirm it was SM. But once inside, apartment was spacious and spotless and the king size bed was amazing. E.thing there that one needed and always plenty of hot water night and day. Maria, the cleaner was amazing. Thought she was owner as she done everything. Far too much for one person. 18 rooms. Definately needs another person to help her. Across the road was the pebble beach but not far to walk to the sandy ones. The area was very quiet due to Corona but was so peaceful. I recommend going on trip to Spinalonga and Santorini. Interesting and stunning. Would def go back.

Another stay this time for 3 weeks, a bit of a different stay this year due to covid the apartment was spotless as usual thanks to Maria who was the only person really about.The key was left in the room ready for our arrival it was a bit odd mama and papa not being around but due to their ages you had to expect this and the apartments were quieter than normal but so was the whole of Gouves but we still enjoyed ours selves and can't wait for next year

Spotless accommodation,a double mattress you don't want to get up off, brilliant water pressure in the shower, quick boil kettle, fridge large enough to hold several bottles of wine, taps ideal for anyone with arthritis, washing clothes rails, huge firm pillows, crisp cotton sheets, thick towels,shutters on windows so you can still have privacy and fresh air, ideally situated near supermarkets, beach and restaurants/bars. No pool but with a small inlet only a ten minute STROLL up past the church providing sunbeds and a safe area for children to swim you don't need one. I'm impressed and will revisit.

Stayed here for 2 weeks. Very basic, but you get what you pay for. Very spacious with a large bedroom and a large kitchen diner that could also sleep 2 as it has 2 single beds built in around it. Just opposite the beach which looks like a pebble beach, when I fact as you walk into the water it's just soft sand. The owner-manager is very helpful and Maria cleans twice weekly. Could do with a bit of TLC, but a comfortable stay. Would def go back again
