Excellent Apartments

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Despina. The rooms are basic and clean; the pool area is good and the bar is continually packed out in the evening due to the excellent work done by the 3 brothers who own this establishment. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always friendly and helpful. There are plenty of restaurants close by and the beach is a 2 min walk away so therefore a great location.I must also mention the brilliant bakery that is 200 yards away from these apartment...superb pastries,doughnuts and breads.

Pros: The friendly staff and owners; and locality to tavernas and beach

Location: Location is excellent as it is close to beach, tavernas and restaurants. The best bakery on island is also close by.

Beau séjour en famille

Beau séjour de 4 jours dans un appartement spacieux avec une superbe vue de notre grand balcon plage à 2 min de marche le seul bémol est qu’il est inscrit climatisation inclus mais arrivé sur place on doit payer 7€ par jour et il n’y a pas de moustiquaire dans la porte alors on s’est faits dévoré par les mousitique
