Great 1 bedroom apartment with sea view which can sleep up to 4 person, everything you need for a wonderful self-catering holiday. The development has a communal pool, local restaurant, bars and the local beach is under 2 kilometres away.
Good location, nice apartment. The only problem was the cockroaches but for the rest everything was perfect!!
In Cyprus there is a problem with cockroaches and due to the early high temperatures they came early this year, so we had the development sprayed, invariably after you spray you actually see more as they leave the sprayed areas and within a few days they perish. The next round of spraying will be next week and this means once again there will be a few cockroaches running around the development.
Although the place seemed perfect on the listing for a self catered holiday, we were highly dissapointed when arrived as it was not as near new, equipped or clean as in pictures. Everywhere around the place there was human hair and stains from the previous guests. Some amenities …
The listing description of the property is correct and true, the property is well furnished with everything that is required for a self catering holiday, it is not an occupied property therefore when guests leave the property is cleared from all products and left over food, because we can not guarantee the credibility of any product that is left behind. We supply all bed linen, bathe & hand towels for each member of the party, cleaning products for washing up, kitchen rowel, bath mat, 1 roll of toilet paper and dustbin liners and the hair dryer is in the bedroom cupboard. What has to be remembered is, this is a self catering property not a bed and breakfast or a hotel. This party paid €9.25 per night per person yet they want shampoo, cooking oil, salt etc. etc. The apartment does sleeps 4 persons there is an IKEA pull-out sofa bed in the living room, maybe inadequate for a party of 4 men but as stated on the listing NO groups/parties, but this was disregarded when the property was booked. Fortunately for this party I was unable to carryout the check-in else they would not have been allowed to stay at the property. Under 1 kilometre is Pervolia town centre of which has restaurants, bars and a coffee shops and within a 2 kilometre radius there are a number of supermarkets with the nearest being 1.2 kilometres from the apartment . This property is designed for persons who want a pleasant tranquil quite relaxing holiday not for 4 men who want to party. As for the TV not being functional, prior to arrivals everything is checked, invariably things do stop functioning, I have checked the satellite and yes its not working, but this non functioning item was never reported therefore It could not be remedied during the stay. As for being challenged on arrival, firstly the person who "greeted" them was a lady who would not challenge 4 large men, yes she did request an electricity consumption deposit because this is part of the arrivals process to insure that air-conditioning is not left on all day whilst the property is empty costing more then the rental income. In closing there is a saying which is 100% true - You can only hope to satisfy 90% of people 100% of the time, it seems to date we have satisfied 99% from the 100%.
