Stayed here end Jul/Aug 2012. Pretty much well summed up by the rest of the reviews on here. Apartment was clean, spacious and well presented - we had two adjoining apartments with a shared balcony as we have 2 teenage cildren so they really had there own apartment. Clean towels were provided every day, bed linen changed 4 times a week. Our floors were mopped every day, although this may depend on individual cleaners as other guests were saying theirs wasn't. Air con was great but developed an annoying click. I reported it to reception and the guy was fixing it by the time I got back to the room, this really summed up the excellent service. Beds relatively comfy for Greece.
I found the food great, although a bit repetetive over 2 weeks. The kids moaned about the lack of nuggets and chips but always found something to choose from.
We found the staff, as well as the owners, professional and happy to chat if you wanted but left you alone if you didn't which suited us fine.
TIPS Take a kettle. Men take 3/4 or long trousers for dinner. Buy pop, etc from Kardamena at a fraction of the price of the on-site shop. Make sure you have overnight food and drink if you are checking in after 9pm. Hire the beach towels and get clean ones every day rather than taking your own.
We also got caught in the fire and would agree it could have been better coordinated. The hotel minibuses and coach drove off empty rather than assisting anyone with mobility problems. However, one of the owners did manage to flag one down to give us a lift to Kardamena as my wife has difficulty walking. The Thomsons reps were excellent, although drinks should have been provided free of charge by Thomsons as most of us only had swimwear and a couple of euros. It was a relief to return to the hotel a few hours later which was operating as though nothing had happened. This is testament to the Greeks, the whole area would have been sealed off for a week in the UK. A bit of ash, a burnt out fire engine and couple of rental vehicles and a smokey smell for a couple of days and that was the excitement over really.
All in all, an enjoyable holiday and would certainly recommend to others.
