We have just returned from 2 weeks, staying in a studio apartment. We were in 207 and our best friends in 202. It looks like ours may have had a refurb but they were both superb. Both on the first floor, with a balcony overlooking g the sea. Really spacious and well appointed. Ours had a short bath with a shower, the other just a shower. We didn't use the bath, you don't, do you! But it was really handy as there was no danger of the shower overflowing and, as I ran, it made washing my running kit really easy! We had a wall mounted hair dryer in the bathroom. The kitchen had everything we needed and everything looked to be brand new, cable ties still on the leads, etc. the room was cleaned every day except Sunday to a really high standard and towels and sheets changed regularly.
We ate in the hotels restaurant twice and had some of the best food of the holiday. Sofia, the owners daughter, is delightful and looked after us really well. She even tried to give me a lesson in making Dolmades but I don't think we were very successful! Her view was, leave it to her mother! They were the best in the area!
Manos, Sofia's brother, runs the apartments and the bar area. I don't think I saw him stop working, the entire time we were there! He is delightful, friendly, hard working and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for him or the girls in the bar, Maria and Katerina were wonderful. Sadly, I didn't get the name of the little one, who worked in the evenings? Just fantastic, all of them.
When they offer you vitamins, just go with it and enjoy. They are medical staff, after all and you always do what the doctor tells you!
This is a gentle, family run, fun, establishment, with quality rooms, quality staff and a real feeling that they want your holiday to be special. It was and we will return. We met people who go back year on year and I can see why. We met some lovely people and hope to see them there again.
Now, one little thing and this is in no way aimed at Manos and his staff!
To the family who arrived, 2 days before we left! They will know who they are and if hey don't, everyone else who was there, will!
Up to your arrival, not one single person felt it necessary to dive off the bridge, shout at the top of their lungs or take bottles of Mythos into the pool! Please, do not get me wrong, I love children, I was one once and children having fun is what holidays should be made of. What you were though, was loud, rude and totally thoughtless to anyone else's views. I say this, in the slim hope you will read it, reflect and maybe change how you behave in future, or, go to Magaluf!
Manos, thank you and to all your staff. Hope to see you next year!
