We stayed early August for a week and had a pleasant stay. Yes, all you hear about the noise, bar and toilet rolls are correct however we did not let this ruin our stay. The rooms were very very basic but very clean, the towels were soft and the beds comfortable. The pool was clean with plenty of sunbeds.
The pool bar was the best I think we have experienced on a self catering holiday with a comprehensive menu and drinks list and very welcoming. The pool bar does open at night and stays open very very late, I heard people still partying at 3.am! Some nights were noisier than others dependent on the group of people in there. In fairness we did sleep with our windows open for fresh air as we have done for the last 20 years in Greece, and never experienced a problem so parents with young families or light sleepers may need to pay for air conditioning so you can close your windows.
The hosts were friendly and greeted everyone with a smile in true typical Greek style.
We met some lovely people and we met some other people, the apartments accommodated a variety of people from all walks of life.
The walk to the beach took about 10 minutes and the beach and sea were lovely, very family friendly and you could walk out quite a while before getting too deep.
We enjoyed the Apollo restaurant and ate there nearly every night. The food and service were excellent and the surroundings lovely at night.
All in all a nice holiday - would we go back? probably not however what suits one doesn't suit another, so if choosing this hotel go with an open mind and enjoy.
