Always a difficult one when you have so many good and negative reviews! I felt exactly the same when considering our booking. Sandy Maria is run by a lovely hard working couple who are quite strict about Health & Safety around the pool - they don't like anyone jumping in or playing roughly which I think is fair enough. Some people find it difficult when asked to stop and as the beach is only a 10 minute walk you can play ball and jump around as much as you like. The pool however is excellent and kept spotlessly clean.
The apartments are clean but very basic. They supply one cooking pan which made for some interesting cooking! Limited glasses, knives and forks - we bought a few things very cheaply from the local town which again was only about a 10 minute walk. We managed and tended to eat out every third night. They want to encourage you to eat in their restaurant/ cafe and the food is fine. Recommend the Greek night for the entertainment as opposed to the food although I had the fish and it was delicious.
We enjoyed our stay by adapting and liked the fact we weren't staying in the middle of town which could be very noisy. Even with the bar open we didn't find it too noisy and it closed promptly at mid night. If you treat the owners with respect and understand they are trying to run a business, during difficult economic times, you won't have a problem. We had a couple of meals in Sandy Maria, enjoyed the Greek night, brought our bottled water from them and a few drinks at the bar.The owners are a dynamic and hard working couple who don't tolerate rudeness.
I do hope this helps and overall I thought this hotel was good value for money...I didn't expect 5 star for the money we paid!
