“Nikos appartments”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

as what normally happens in Greece you get dropped off at the bottom of the road to your apartment and wonder if you have made the right choice, this was my first time in Greece but my partners has been 4 times.Yes the apartments are set back from the main strip but this was ideal for those who prefer peace and quiet from the main hustle and bustle of the main drag.Unlike another reviews the location isn't run down it's just typical of Greece.The walk to the main strip, you can go under the main underpass or walk a lit path along the road which is literally less than 3 minutes away.The apartments are very clean, appreciate comments about bathroom being small but compared to other accommodation in greece, my partner says it been the biggest and best.The atmosphere was great, Van,Manos and Effie where very nice and made everyone feel welcome.The food was fabulous, very fresh, they have a lot of fruit growing in the garden as well as a herb garden, of which Manos Makes a very good Mojhito with the fresh mint.Due to the atmosphere and the fact that many people return this makes an ideal holiday base to meet friends and enjoy other peoples company.I would like to thank Van, Effie and Manos for their hospitality.

so thanks,
Malc and Tracy

Room Tip: i would pay the additional cost for the air con.

Enjoyed staying at Nikos Apartments, the staff were very friendly and welcoming and always made us laugh! The pool area was lovely and there was a large amount of sunbeds to use! I cannot praise the food enough and cocktails enough! Every meal I had was lovely! Only gripe I do have is that the bathroom was very small and made it hard when showering because there was water everywhere. All in all would definitely visit again though! :)

Did not book these apartments but were told a few days before our holiday that our original accommodation was overbooked. Read the reviews and hoped that this would actually be a better option. Unfortunately on arrival we were put in a room which was not really set out very practically for using the kitchen and the room itself is almost below ground with the windows opening to an eye level view of the walkway to the bar. The bedroom and bathroom were fine, although shower a little small! There was a shared terrace which was surrounded on 3 sides by the other building so not really suitable for sitting out. All that said, we did speak to the owner who said he would move us as soon as he could. An alternative room was not available until 6 days until our holiday, leaving us only 4 in the new room but when we did move it was a vast improvement. Excellent living space, huge bedroom and 2 balconies. The pool & bar area are lovely and the cleaners do a brilliant job. Whilst we didn't go to the weekly BBQ we did hear great things about it. Van, Effie & Manos are very good hosts and do their best to make sure everyone has a good time. Location is just off the main 'strip' (about 5-10 minutes walk) which is nice as you're out of all the noise. All the rooms are great for sleeping as you can't hear any of the noise from the bar. Would definitely recommend staying here, just not in rooms 28-31!.

Room Tip: Our 2nd room (41) had views of the mountains and the sea (2 balconies)!!

On arrival we were greeted by a young man who shown us to our room and informed us if we needed anything to go to the bar and left us to unpack. The room itself was small but clean and tidy yet a bit dark. It was cleaned regularly and every other day either the bed or towels were changed. We did not cook in the room but there was a small stove and pots, pans and plates provided if you wish to do so. The bathroom was rather disappointing with little lighting and extremely tiny, after a shower, which was always hot, the floor become extremely slippy and wet due to the 'typical Greek bathroom' style of it. The bed was a bit hard for my liking however we were never disturbed and did manage to have a good nights sleep. We were also given our own balcony which was at the back of the apartments looking onto a small church and a few trees. The disappointing factor for us was the location. The apartments are set back off the main road in what is a rather run down area with empty apartment blocks that we seen children playing in. There is a small basic shop at the end of the road which supplies necessities such as toilet rolls, bottle water etc. The walk to the main strip was quite far and involved going under the 'underpass' which lacked lighting in some and was not ideal. A taxi typically cost around 6/7 euros if you did not want to walk. During the day the heat was unbearable as you were trying to just get back to your room and at night it was a bit spooky and easy to get lost at first. In comparison to this however the staff were lovely and friendly, greeting us every morning, and even did their own BBQ night where the bar was lively and everyone was having a good time. These apartments are good for a base, somewhere to sleep, and as long as you don't mind walking for a little bit then they would be perfect!

Just had a really lovely week in Stalis at the Nikos apts. Run by a great family who take a lot of pride - everywhere is spotless and the pool area is very nice - we never had to put our towels out as there were plenty of sunbeds.
The room was good - we had 2 balconies - every room had a clothes maiden - very useful - and the sheets and towels were changed every couple of days. (no tv - a technology free week - lovely!) We found the bed a little uncomfortable but put 2 blankets under the bottom sheet and we were fine then. It is only 600 steps to the beach and the 'strip' with the bars and restaurants - lots of choice at good prices.
There is a little shop a couple of hundred yards away that sells all the basics at reasonable prices.
We found the barbeque a great way of meeting your fellow guests - ended up dancing on the bar!
All in all it was a great holiday - we wanted a 'fly and flop' and that is just what we had.
We never tend to go back to places but there were so many people who had been going there for years - a testament to Van, Effie and the rest of the family.
Would we go again.........most definately!

There is nothing bad I can say about our stay here from the 3rd to 10th Sept. lovely pool and bar area , spacious basic rooms and the whole place is absolutely spotless. Lovely service from all the family . The resort is very nice as well although do get recommendations for the restaurants as some of the food was a bit below par. The pool BBQ was great fun and actually the food was lovely. Go you won't regret it !

I've never written a review before but felt compelled to make an exception with Nikos Apartments! I'm a bit of a clean freak and am always nervous when staying somewhere new, but as soon as I entered room 38 I was thrilled with the high standards......I didn't need to buy cleaning supplies from the local shop like I've done with so many other apartments I've stayed at before! The staff (a family) are friendly, welcoming and excellent hosts! Several times we heard them say "We'll be your legs, you just relax and enjoy your holiday!" The BBQ night is brilliant and a lot of fun and the food is delicious.......another thing I'm very fussy about! Me and my fiance met regular visitors, some who have been coming here for as long as 17 years and I can definitely see why! There is a great atmosphere at the pool bar. Music does play til very late at night but we could not here this once we were back in our room, but probably as we didn't overlook the pool area. There is a convenient shop just a 1 minute walk from Nikos and the beach, bars and restaurants are only a 5 minute walk away! I've never stayed at the same apartments twice but for Nikos I will be making an exception and will definitely come back! Thanks for a great time! :)
