As per the title of this review we found the Alexis House appartments to be clean and functional. Considering the amount of time you actually spend in your room what more do you want?
A number of things worth commenting on however;
* The air conditioning will cost you €80 for 2 weeks, well worth it though especially if you want to sleep at night.
* There is a safe in the room and this will cost you €10 per week.
* Late checkout is available (4:00pm) and this will cost €15.
The kitchen area was fine with a sink, fridge, kettle and a 2 ring electric cooker for want of a better description. We never used the cooker but the fridge was a must. All very clean.
Location was fine, just 5 mins from Valtos Beach and 15 mins into town of a n evening. Yes there are hills but you get used to them and in anycase they help you work up an appetite.
I could go on and on about all the Tavernas we frequented suffice to say that if you opt for one on the harbour front you will pay more. Typically dinner for 2 including wine would average €35, Greece isnt cheap anymore.
If its authenticity your looking for then theres only one place to go and thats Sakis. Run by the family who opened it in 1954 it is a traditional Greek taverna and doesnt pretend to be something it isnt. If you go around 7-8pm be prepared to wait but then that is a recommendation in itself. You will be served complimentary Ouzo whilst you read the menu and wait for a table but the wait will bw worth it. We ate there 3 times and every single time the bill was €25. Why? Because its not on the harbour or advertises spectacular views. We would thoroghly recommend it.
Also worthy of consideration is Golfo Beach Taverna if only for the setting, the food and the owner who is a real character. Again, it doesnt try and pretend, its just a good, traditional family run Taverna situated on Golfo Beach itself.
