We had a ground floor room at the front of the first block as you enter the (small) complex. The apartment was roomy with a spacious kitchen and a separate bedroom. We had three windows plus a roll down shutter on the doors to the terrace - though it was hot we managed without the air conditioning.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay - the beach is a 7-minute walk away and there is a good supermarket about 5 minutes away. Seven or eight minutes of casual strolling and you reach the main square. So ideally placed...
The owner is a lovely lady who is always happy to have a chat. When the resort was plunged into darkness due to a power cut (and it was raining heavily!) she met us at almost midnight as we splashed our way back to the apartment with a torch to make sure we got into the apartment without any mishap.
The front apartments are close to the road so there is a bit of traffic noise but it didn't bother us - some local wine and a glass of raki and we slept like babies!
We've been to the resort three times, every time staying in a different apartment; we'd check out the Athena for our next visit. We were very happy.
