Stayed here in June 2012.
It was so peaceful! We had an apartment in block overlooking the bay through the trees and it was very tranquil. I should imagine though if you had an apartment at the back there would have been traffic noise.
We'd booked a 1 bedroom apartment and actually had 2 and the apartment was set over two floors. Although the spiral staircase, which was very narrow, was a little scary but providing you took it carefully it wasn't too much of a problem.
Apartments are well equipped with everything you would need and kept spotlessly clean 6 days per week.
All the staff were really helpful and, although we didn't have anything cooked, the salads at the Pool Bar were lovely and the other food looked good too.
Besides sitting by the pool (which can be a bit hot) there are lovely lawned areas overlooking the bay (not very good for swimming) and you can relax on your sun loungers under the shade of the many trees there.
Gouvia itself is a quaint resort and quite compact compared to other resorts that we saw on our travels with the hire car, which we liked,
If you want English Breakfast and sandy beaches then the resorts in the North cater for these things more than Gouvia, but we felt that you lose some of the local feel at these resorts.
Overall a lovely holiday and would return again to same place.
