Just back after 2 weeks stay at the Artemis Apts. As usual when booking 2* we were unsure what to expect on arrival. However any fears we may have had were instantly allayed when we recieved a warm welcome from Sotiris. As previous reviews have indicated the apts are family run and what a family......friendly, great with kids ( i have 3 girls aged 6 to 12) but also great ''craic'' with the adults.
The apts were clean and tidy on arrival and the maid service (thanks to Helen) was excellent. The apts had a modern feel to them and we has 2 balconies in our apt.The pool area was lovely, with the pool being easily big enough for complex of this size with a kids section for toddlers etc.
The food at the pool bar was good value and great for breakfast or lunch (well done Poppy).
There is a BBQ night around the pool on a Sunday and with some greek dancing and a bit of karaoke thrown in it was a great night.
The apts are pretty quiet and there were quite a few repeat visitors. There was a good mix of families and couples staying during our 2 weeks from all over the U.K.
The beach is no more than 5 mins walk away and watersports etc can be found there.
Gouves is a quiet resort with some large all inclusive hotels along the beach front.This may have had a effect on the traditional tavernas in the resort which is a great pity because we found at least 3 exellent places for traditional Greek cuisine. These places were Divina,Filoxena and Zorbas,each were wonderful but Divina had to top the others! The man running the restaurant was very friendly and helpful! He even taught us some new Greek phrases.
Overall we had a first class holiday in first class apartments so thanks to Sotiris and his family and Poppy and Helen for a great holiday.
