Had two lovely weeks at Sofia's Apps. Situated at one end of the strip so was quiet as away from the hustle and bustle. Basic room with only limited facilities, cleaned daily with bedding and towels changes twice weekly. No toaster, Microwave, hairdryer or hook for the shower. Furniture in the bar area wasn't very comfortable. Pool bar serving snacks...

This is the second time we have been to this hotel and must say absolutely love it. The rooms are basic but for the price you can't grumble. The location is quiet and the pool is immaculate. The only down side to this island is the stray dogs. The dogs are looked over by zante strays a remarkable non profit...

Stayed here in September 2015 as a couple. The hotel is in a great location very close to many restaurants and bars and close to the beach. The rooms themselves are typical Greek, basic but has what you need, the room had no television which may have come in handy during our very rainy holiday!! Fair sized room, bed and...

Just came back from a week at this lovely hotel. The room was very clean when we arrived,cleaners visited daily to make beds and empty bins. However they did no other cleaning, this wouldn't have been a problem if it hadn't been for the fact that there were a few storms while we were there which resulted in dirty floors....

Thank you for writing your lovely review. If I may to point out some things on your comments. Firstly, the maids not only make the beds and change the towels twice pre week, but also swip and mop the floors every day. Secondly, the sensors on the balcony doors are a common thing for hotels that are ecofriendly, as it...

Place looks lovely on the outside, great pool area, a lot of plants and flowers. The sandy beach nearby is lovely and there are busses that go to the island's main city or to other beaches. No one should miss the Shipwreck Beach that can be reached only by ship. However. Our room had absolutely No windows. We could get...

Thank you for your review. It is nice that you liked the island and you found interesting the surroundings. About the cleaning, the cleaners came in your room every day and had to ask you to leave the room in order to clean it. Also you got your towels changed nearly every day, because you left them on the floor,...
