“Do not stop at these appartments!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2011

We arrived early evening and couldn't believe how close it was to a very busy main road, the pool is separated from the road by a 3 foot hedge. We were shown to our room (room 7) which was the smallest room we've ever stayed in. The furniture in the room was at least 30 years old and looked it, you could only open one of the wardrobe doors because the other one opened onto the bed which meant you couldn't use one of two drawers. My sheet had spots of blood on it and the towels were older than the furniture. The kitchen area was filthy and the 2 mugs provided were chipped and cracked, as for the rest of the cutlery and crockery, there was no way we were going to use it. I've saved the best till last, the bathroom, small, filthy and decrepid doesn't begin to describe it, if you sat on the toilet one foot had to be in the shower tray, it had filthy louvre Windows which had never been cleaned and wouldn't close, allowing mosquitoes to come and go as they pleased, as for the sink I didn't know they made sinks that small! We hoped our first impressions would be wrong and that everything would be better after a good nights sleep, some chance, it was like sleeping on the hard shoulder of the M25, the traffic never stopped all night. We got up the following morning and went for a walk and passed a really pretty group of appartments close to the beach, now we are not posh and certainly not rich but we did something we've never done before and booked into these appartments, I can safely say it was the best €150 we've ever spent.
We have travelled to Greece many times and always stopped in typical basic grecian appartments but these were beyond basic.

Whilst on arrival the pool and bar area looked very welcoming and appeared to be well maintained, although we didnt spend anytime here as the road was right next to the pool.
We have no crticism of the room being basic that is part of the attraction of Greek holidays, however we were more than disappointed that our room was never cleaned during our stay. The beds were never changed, the towels replaced and the bin was never emptied! The lack of cleanliness was appalling and totally inexcusable.
The level of noise due to the close by traffic was extremely loud and made for a very bad nights sleep, especially as the bed and pillows were so lumpy.

Just returned from one of the best holidays iv ever had and thats quiet a few. It was quiet , relaxing and tranquil, really beautiful surrounding's , lemon tree's , orange trees, and gorgeous flowers around the pool area, Mr and Mrs Makis themselves are so lovely and really care about the hotel and their guest's . There son akis and his partner take care of the bar which is of reasonable price, and all of them work hard to make sure all your need's are catered for. A really pleasant family atmosphere.They run a lovely restaurant for which we had breakfast and lunch daily again very good prices full english brekkie only 2.50 euros. The only wish i had was for a high chair there was none and this made eating there in the evening a problem as obviously we were there longer and i couldnt contain my 1 year old in his buggt this long or let him out because of the pool area.

I found the whole area around great , quiet lovely good priced taverners were just around the corner if you wanted them or if you wanted a bit livlier then there were some good bars ( L.A BAR ) in particularly was great for a bit of karaoke. Stavros taverna was brill we were really taken care of and good good prices once we found there we went nowhere else.

Beach 10 mins walk a pleasant walk past a few shops , beautiful beach , watersports pedalo 8 euros for an hour with a slide on. We did snorkelling and saw some amazing fish just a few meteres from the shore.

All in all i would really recommend Makis apartments for a really pleasant , reasonable holiday , im already looking at flights to go back next July. Thankyou to the Makis family for your hospitality , friendship and a great great holiday xx

My family stopped here for 2 weeks.My children are 14 and 12 and loved it.There are 12 apartments we were in room 10 overlooking the pool,2 bedrooms,L-shaped balcony,kitchenette,wetroom/shower very basic but very adequate.Makis owns the apartments and is there early every morning with his wife Vasso.Akis (son) and Nellie run the apartments and are very kind and welcoming and will do anything to make your stay great.Their hospitality is fantastic! Food good snacks and breakfast but you must let Makis do a bbq for you absolutely brilliant loads of different meats done to your request,salad and wine etc............Makis always offering fruit off his trees pears,lemons,plums.Swimming pool fantastic.Beer good,bar stops open all day and all night until everyone gone to bed.The road gets a bit busy but not off putting always slept well.Moraitika itself is one road through plenty of bars and tavernas shops and cashpoints.Eating out you have got to go to Zaks turn right at the island head down into Messonghi and have the Lamb and the Bekri Meze absolutely the best place to eat, Zak and Costas best waiters i've ever seen kids loved it loads of free cake and fruit being offered out and reasonable prices.Other good places to eat Stavros Taverna,Rose Garden does Sunday dinner and is in very quiet surroundings very nice! Maxims does a wonderful English breakfast.Fairplay sports bar gives you Internet,Pool and cheap drinks and cocktails.The beach at Moraitika is 10 minutes walk away can get very busy,Messonghi beach 15 minutes walk better option i think,plenty of watersports available.Overall i think this was a great holiday and i will be going back.My only dislike was the wasps pain in the a*** when eating but you can't have everything!!

My boyfriend & I stayed at Makis Apartments for 1 week in July 2011. The room itself was very basic, although we did get upgraded from a 1 bed place to 2 bed so it was a little bigger and the bathroom is a small typical Greek wet room. When we booked it stated that you could pay extra for air con but just to warn you, there is only a fan available and no air con installed in the rooms. Although a fan was fine for us and it wasn't too hot to sleep at night. The downstairs bar area at the apartments was very comfortable and relaxing so it was nice to sit down here in the evenings & have a drink. We had the bbq/grill at the apartments one night and it was lovely!! I would definately recommend eating here. Also just to add, Makis & Nelli, the owners are very friendly, along with the rest of the family, and make you feel very welcome.

We found some really nice typical Greek places to eat in Moraitika, which were up the hill a bit. If you walk through the main high street almost to the end, where Cookies internet cafe is and turn up the hill, there's a restaurant with an amazing view over Moraitika called Bella Vista. If you walk past Cookies to Co-op and turn up that part of the hill, you will find a lovely friendly family run restaurant called The Village Taverna. We ate here twice, the food was delicious especially the Meze and it was really good value for money, not expensive at all. At the same part of the hill you will see signposts to another restaurant called Tassos taverna I think it was? There's only a sign for one other restaurant so follow the sign and you will find it. You can sit upstairs and look out over the water. We had grilled food here which was really tasty and you could smell it cooking whilst you were waiting yum!

Beach-wise the apartments are nearest to Moraitika beach which is nice but we also found that the beach a little further away was nice and a bit quieter. If you walk to the bottom of the road that the apartments are on towards to sea and turn right where the mini roundabout you will see signs to Messonghi. If you keep walking for about 8 mins, you'll cross a river then turn left at the next road which directs you down past the river, then you'll come to the beach at the end.

Overall Makis Apartments was the perfect place to stay for a nice quiet beach holiday with nice places to eat that were reasonably priced.

Room Tip: I'd recommend asking Makis if you want to try and upgrade your room but we had a larger room wit...
