“Lovely Apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

We just came home from 2 weeks in Tigaki at the Filitsa studios. The apartment was spotless upon our arrival and was kept spotless through out our stay. Towels were changed every 2 days and bed linen every 3 days. Also loo rolls were provided, something we have never had in self catering before. The owner Katarina was lovely, she meet us off the coach and helped us with our cases. There was a bottle of water in the fridge but because it wasn't cold she went and got another one. She waited until we had gone out to come in to clean, the only times she called on us was when she was giving us home made pies or cake. When we had to stay another night due to an air traffic control strike she told us don't worry and only charged us 15 euros some other people we spoke to were charged 100 euros for the extra night by their hotels. We would highly recommend these apartments.

Have just arrived home today after 2 weeks at the Filitsa Apartments in Tingaki, Kos.
The rooms were a good size, were clean on the surface and everything looked good to start with. On our second day we were accused by the owner Katerina of damaging a glass door and were handed a bill for 25Euro's,on refusing to pay the bill, we were stalked by her every day, contacted the rep who told us not to worry about it, but the owner was a real nasty piece of work. Air condition was 7 Euro's per night, blooming rip off. All the taps dripped constantly, she told us to turn them off very tight as it was difficult to get a plumber. The fridge was so old that it rattled off the wall every 20 seconds. The final straw was the neighbours dog, it barked constantly all night, every night. It was so bad that we were so exausted through lack of sleep that we left the resort and moved to Kardamena at our own expense. Don't get me wrong, the resort , bars and restaurants were great, but don't go to this Apartment block, it will drive you crazy............

Room Tip: Bring heavy duty ear plugs for this place to drown out the barking dogs !!!!!

Booked the Filitsa Studios for two weeks in June for myself and my travel buddy, through LowCostHolidays.com. Was a bit concerned about the booking after reading reviews on the Internet, however everything, the flight, the resort transfer and the accommodation all went like clockwork, even down to the special request for two adjoining rooms.
Katerina met us off the transfer bus and helped us with our luggage to our rooms. The studios are very spacious, the usual bathroom with a proper shower tray and curtain, but still no shower head holder, a small kitchenette area with fridge, kettle, two electric rings and a selection of plates, cutlery etc. together with a table and two chairs. Katerina had also put a complimentary bottle of water in the fridge. Through an archway to the bedroom with two single beds, wardrobe, dressing table and bedside table, there is also a free standing fan in every studio. There are air conditioning units in each studio, but we didn’t use it so don’t know the cost, if you prop open the back door and open the balcony doors you do get a cooling breeze through the studio. The beds are not the most comfortable in the world and the pillows resembled house bricks which is not unusual in Greece. Out to the balcony which also has a table and two chairs and gets the afternoon sun, the view is quite lovely once you look past the bit of waste ground right below, you can see the sea and even watch the spectacular sunset from here. It can be a bit noisy at night as the accommodation is on Main Street so you get traffic noise and there is a bar across the road that stays open quite late.
These studios are the cleanest we have ever stayed in Greece, Katernina cleans the rooms and empties the bins every day. Bed linen is changed every third day and towels every second day. Katerina is lovely and will do anything for you, she is so friendly and likes to have a chat. We asked to keep one room on till our departure which cost us 20 Euros, Katerina returned and helped us with our luggage and waved us off, she had even left us clean towels even though it was our last day, now that is what I call service. We would thoroughly recommend this accommodation and would not hesitate in returning.

Room Tip: Request a top floor room for the views

Just got back from Tingaki and had brilliant holiday. Filitsa apartments were one the best we have stayed in, in Greece. We had 2 apartments next to each other, a two bed and a three bed. Three bed was really spacious, basic kitchenette with table and chairs and bathroom had 'proper' shower cubicle with enclosure, never had that before in Greece! Two bed was smaller but had everything we needed. Rooms were cleaned and bins emptied every day, towels and bedding changed every 3 days. Katerina that runs/owns the apartments is lovely and friendly and can't do enough for you. The only downside to these apartments is there is no air conditioning, each room has fan provided but it wasn't enough in the july/august heat. At least they were provided free, we had to hire fans a few years ago in Skiathos. Apartments are in good location on main road, 5 minute walk to beach and opposite 'Rendevous' bar which was really good. Colin who runs bar is really friendly and welcoming. All in all we had great time and had no problem with these apartments.

On arrival at the apartments late at night we were greeted by Vasilli, the greek bar owner from over the road and there started our fab greek holiday!
The apartments are basic but have everything you need.... they are very clean with a daily visit from the owner Katerina. We were concerned about lack of safe but were assured by everyone that there is just no crime in the resort and peopkle dont really lock things up!!! At the end of our stay check out time was flexibe, check out when you re ready, for no extra cost... great as we didint fly ubtil 11pm!!!
The resort has lots of lovely restaurants and bars.... but would avoid Meni ... food not great and service appalling!!! Spyros very good.... lovely fresh fish and great service.... it cost us about £20 each for a two course dinner with wine regardless of where we ate!
Drinks prices vary up and down the main road but mostkly in line with uk. A visit to Rendevous Bar is however a must... Vasilli the greek owner is lovely and verty helpful in all things greek and the Welsh barman, Colin, is just fab!!! Colin puts on some form of light entertainment every night... quizzes, race nights etc... all great fun and within a few days it will feel like you are a local! These guys will also point you in the right direction for trips, tours etc
The beach is lovely.... not crowded and very clean... yes you have to pay for a bed but whats a few extra euros!!!
All in all our stay in Tigaki at the Filitsa was fab.... we wilol most definitely be visiting again!!!

Have recently come back from Tingaki. Stayed in Filitsa apartments. Very spacious, extremely clean, travel kettle was also provided. The beach is top class. The food was very good in all tavernas we tried, but do try Meni, it looks expensive from outside with posh wine glasses, but it is reasonable. If you like pasta, do try Putaneska. It is delicious. Don't forget Alikis, right at the end of the road after square, good value for money and nice walk coming back to Filitsa. We had a very relaxing stay, The weather was fantastic also. If you are a cat lover don't worry about the cats behind Filtsa. They belong to the Greek family who have a dog, chickens and a large number of cats. They do feed them and there is always water for them.
