The apartments at Aphrodite Sands are really nice and very well equipped. Be aware that the reception is not signposted from the road and can be hard to find especially at night but the very helpful chap on duty heard us driving around and came to find us and showed us the way. There is no maid service but this isn't a bad thing as far as I'm concerned as you get complete privacy and there is a washing machine if you want to wash the bedding etc.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment which had a good size balcony.
The first few days of our stay were nice and quiet as the adjacent apartments were unoccupied but when a family arrived next door it quickly became apparent that the builders have never heard of soundproofing. We could hear every word of every conversation and the sound of the kids laughing and playing early in the morning. Also the mattresses are a bit cheap and we didn't sleep well.
Madrina is a nice place to stay but be aware there is a lot of building work going in in the area, some right next to the complex. There wasn't much activity while we were there but if work starts up again it could get very noisy.
The village itself has some really nice places to eat and drink and a couple of very handy shops so if you just want to relax by the resorts lovely pools, stroll along the nearby pebble beach and have a drink and a meal in the evening then you might be happy to stay put but I'd recommend hiring a car. The roads are remarkably quiet and driving was easy though watch out for the goats out on the B6 near Aphrodites Rock!
A nice place to stay though if I was to go back to the area I think I'd prefer a private villa due to the thin walls! I'm sure I'd pop back to Madrina for a meal or 2 though.
