Me and a friend booked these apartments for a weeks stay in July 2013 through easyjet holidays. We were not expecting luxury as we only paid £300 each for everything and had read previous reviews.
We were dropped off at the top of the road and left to 'fend for ourselves' at 1 in the morning! We had to walk 10 mins down a dark street to 'check in' with a man who hardly spoke English, but did not hesitate in taking our €250 deposit!
When we finally made it to the room we were in shock, there was one old sofa and a kitchenette In the main space and a small bathroom. There was plenty of draw and wardrobe space but only 2 plugs in the kitchenette and only one mirror!! I slept on the sofa and woke up with bites on my legs, my friend slept on a very uncomfortable pull out mattress on the floor. There is no air con and no opportunity to purchase any, which meant once we had showered and dried our hair the room was unbearably hot, especially at night, we had to sleep with the balcony door open!!
We were facing the back of a large hotel and would nightly be woken up from 4am to 6am by what sounded like 1000 glasses bins being emptied and noisy vehicles!
The bathroom window was on the main corridor and right by the lifts so whenever people where walking past/waiting for the lift you could hear them and they could hear you! You had to leave the window open due to lack of aircon so I felt like anyone could look in while waiting for the lift, on one occasion they did!!
The pool area is large and clean BUT the water is freezing, the sunbeds are unnameable to lie on for more than 20 mins, you have to pay to hire sunbed and it is overrun by locals using the facilities like a public pool!! There is no option to use another hotels pool as they all use swipe cards or codes, trust me we tried them all!!
The location of the apartments is great, it's just a pity about the block in general!! I would never stay here again, even if it was free!!
