This was a last minute booking at a very reasonable price - we didn't expect much. The studio apartment was compact but very clean and provided a kitchenette with basics for cooking - quite honestly it was only suitable for snacks/light meals but it is so reasonable to eat out locally. The bus service is excellent - very reasonable and buses run every 15/20 minutes approx. The slope to the actual apartments is quite steep but it's well lit in the evening and my partner and I are not the youngest fittest people but if you take your time it's not a problem - at the end of the week we were proud to be walking up without stopping. We went with Thompson's and the rep Sarah was brilliant. It's a nice easy downhill walk to villages at both sides of the apartment & there are some excellent tavernas - would strongly recommend Jimmy's. You can get a bus back as these run until quite late - I wouldn't recommend walking as it's pretty dark and it is a steep walk back although we did walk on a couple of occasions. The beaches are wonderful - that's all I can say-. Again it's a pleasant walk down - jump on the bus to get back - approx 3 minutes. we spent a couple of days around the pool which is also very clean. We found the music to be okay and the guests were actually telling the bar staff what they wanted them to play - the pool is a good size and we always got a sun bed although there's not many and this could be a problem in the busy months. All the staff were friendly and quite honestly all the people we met were very friendly and your custom was appreciated in bars, tavernas etc. I found the supermarkets a bit pricey & would recommend you take the basics - tea coffee and butter was over 4 euros for a small tub. I would also bring a small washing up liquid and a cloth/scourer.You will also need beach towels. They provide bath towels but they are on the small side but clean & changed regulary. You can get a good English breakfast at the bar and a limited choice of generously portioned snacks. The air conditioning which I consider a necessity was 40 euros & don't forget your insect repellants & mosquito machines & sun lotions as these are more expensive than at home and you will need them. Overall a great holiday will be going back. People have said this is remote but many of the apartments are quite remote and not many offer such a wonderful view. For couples I think this is great but I wouldn't take young children and there's not much excapt for the beach and it would be a trek with a pram - also not suitable if you have walking difficulties. Hope you found this helpful.
