I travelled with 8 other people (we had reserved 5 apartments). Our party arrived at 6am after travelling all night only to find noone there and the apartment all locked up. The rep telephoned the owner who said he would come in half an hour to let us in. We were absolutely shattered but waited patiently for him to arrive. When eventually he did arrive and open up the apartments, they were filthy and just left from the last people leaving, complete with toilet bin full of dirty tissues, dirty unmade beds and mop bucket in middle of the floor. We told the owner that this wasnt acceptable but he took no responsibility for it whatsoever (blaming Thomas Cook). He was rude and nasty to everyone inlcuding the rep. We walked away with our cases into town and had coffee in the bakery as this was the only place open. We telephoned the Thomas Cook office at 11am and were told to go back as the apartments were now habitable. We didnt bother going to bed as by now we were past it. The apartment was unkempt, nothing worked properly. My sister got an electric shock from the hob, the shower was a joke, the hot and cold taps were on the wrong way round so I had a cold wash for 3 days before I realised this, we slept with a bat in our room for 3 nights flying around all night. There was even a mouse in one apartment. The owners father could speak no English but sure as hell he could communicate when any one of us left the outside light on, indicating crossly that it cost money and to turn it off. He crept around spying on everything we did. The place was in darkness every night so when we returned home from our meal we had to stumble around uneven ground to find our apartment. We do not expect much from Greece apart from cleanliness and a nice welcome. Having stayed in many places in the village, we have usually found families take pride in their apartments which are cherished and loved. Not so here Im afraid. I cant believe Thomas Cook are offering this to their customers again next year!
