We had a very enjoyable time here but a few minor things would not let us give it full marks. Arriving late we were just shown to our room and not told at that time that they only supply the first toilet roll and you then have to get your own. Owners made a fuss of people who spend money at the bar or buying meals there, not once did either of them ask us if there was anything we required. We found out later that you can get a local bus just outside the airport to the apartments for 3.70 euros each and bus stop 25 is a 2 minute walk down to Irida. The pool is lovely to sit around and the shops are a 10-15 minute walk away. Gorty's supermarket is nearby (up from apartments) but their prices are higher, we preferred the Thisvi mini supermarket which you pass heading for the beach. There are 2 paths marked "to the beach", the first one you come to is an easy walk straight downhill and the next is stepped. We had to tie the shower head up so take something with you for this and the hot water is heated by solar panels so don't expect to have a hot shower in the morning and it's first come first served after 5pm because 1 tank serves 6 apartments so you need to get there early.if you want a hot shower. Rooms have 2 balconies and room 4 gets the sun all day but being above the bar means you get the loud music till after 1am. Cleo's grasp of english seems poor so make sure she understands your requirements.
Room Tip:An upstairs room is better because Makis puts sprinklers on all day for the garden and this can flood downstairs balconies making it difficult to dry clothes.
