We stayed in a 1 bedroomed apartment at the Amaryllis at the end of July.
We found the hotel generally to be good for the price we paid. Our apartment was on the 1st floor and was a good size for the 4 of us with a twin bedroom and 2 sofa beds in the lounge area. The kitchen was tiny but ideal for making drinks and snacks - which is all you really want when you are on holiday. Bathroom was just as expected for Greece.
We found that there was not enough storage in the aparment for 4 people and we ended up living out of the suitcases for the duration of our holiday. There was one thing that I really did not like about the apartments and that was the really odd flooring. It was crazy paving style and although the cleaners came in every day, I felt that it was impossible for them to clean it properly due the deep grooves around the tiles. You could actually see the discolouration there - not nice!
We paid for the safe and air conditioning (a must in July) and found the air con to be excellent.
The pool was a good size but very crowded (it was peak season) Lots of reserving of beds and several very large family groups (15 people+) staying there who all seemed to take over the sunbed terraces and pool. We ended up at the beach and the pool of the Peluzzo a good few days because we could not get beds. The Peluzzo is right opposite and the pool was really good - just buy a drink/snack and they are happy to let you use their pool.
Kalamaki is fab! Loads of great restaurants (we liked Heavens Kitchen and Artemis the best) and good bars (our favourites are Drunk Corner and Oceanic)
We would definitely return to Kalamaki but probably not the Amaryllis due to the dodgy flooring and lack of space around the pool.
