After a break of 20 years we decided to return here child free. To our delight the place was still run by George and Ingrid. Our hosts had not changed a bit and were full of information regarding the area. They were great company throughout our stay during which time they treated us like family. The rooms are comfortable and...

This is the 29th year I've been coming to this accommodation and it just gets better and better. George, Ingrid, Christina and the rest of the team, work so hard everyday to keep these apartments in tip top shape. Perfect location for being far enough away from the strip and those holidaymakers who don't appreciate the culture of this beautiful...

It says a lot about Melissa when almost everyone staying are returning guests. Everything was perfect as usual, there's hardly anything to say that we haven't said before. Just thanks again to Giorgos, Ingrid, Christina, Anna & Elena; nice to meet Mateos and 'baby'.

We had a lovely stay at Melissa apartments. We were greeted on the morning of arrival by Cristina , whom was a very friendly, hard working lady. The rooms are very basic but very spacious and clean. The only issue we had was the shower had no curtain so the floor became very slippery. The pool area is a good...
