We booked via a charter company, Ving. We had a two bedroom apartment with a kitchen in the corner of the livingroom. It had two balconies but we only ever used the main one, overlooking the pool. There where two pools, a very small one that was actually a bit too deep to call a kids pool, and a larger one that had a shallow end which was nice for the kids. The was a bar/snackbar with pretty good food for lunch. We did not try the restaurant. The lady that runs the place was very nice and gave out a lot of cookies to all the kids. Seems like a Greek thing to give out "free" stuff, drinks and ice cream to the kids. They have a small kiosk that has a good selection of food and the price is pretty good. The only bad thing at all I will say about the place is that they could have changed the towels a bit more often. We had a couple of towels that got dirty and they just hung them up again instead of giving us new ones. As for the area, not really a hotel review but still usefull, the area is great except for no boardwalk. We had a stroller which was difficult to get down sidewalk.
