Hi we stayed here a few years ago and had a wonderful time and are trying to book again for next summer. I can't find it listed with any of the travel agents. Not Direct Greece or Thomson - or others. Please do you know how to book it now? We prefer a package thing if possible. Thanks Melanie x
Just back from the best kept secret in zante,if its a holiday to take the stress away then this is the place to go for good food, good appartment,and great friendly people.The beech is just 2mins away and is safe for kid's and grown up's or just stay by the pool,and let Kostas look to all your need's i, just hope its there next year then we take our grandchildren with us. So go and let you'r self get spoiled as we did .Reguards Peter and Anne.
Information required. We have booked thru direct greece to go to these apartments in Aug09. Looking at the internet, there is a site for the Katerina Studios & apartments in Porto Roma Vassilikos, but the accommodation buildings are different. The blocks are pink and terracota and they don't mention a pool. Is this the same place? The pictures on direct greece show a while apartment block with the pool & theMarina bar. Is this the same place or it it different?
well thanks for all your opinion's of me and my dad. but i still say that holiday was crap and appartments where even worse than that.
Hi Will, that wonderful rep was Jenny Cassidy and she was the best rep I ever had anywhere. She went the extra mile all the time.
Do not despair, Kostas and co were very friendly and helpful.Having just returned from the Katerina, we have had a great holiday and this is on our list of possible future returns. Enjoy!
I love this place and so want to go back but having problem identifying the apartments. I need to know the number of the one on the top floor in the middle (the one that steps out) with pool view. Stayed in it before and have a nostalgic reason for needing to go back to that same apartment. Any help?
Many Thanks. Am really looking forward to our holiday, the reviews have been helpful and very entertaining! Will report back on our return
H Janet,there are no safety deposit boxes at the Katerina but quite honestly it is crime free there.
Please help as Direct Greece seem unable to answer any query. Are safety deposit boxes available at the Katerina? How close are the money exchange facilities?
Forgot to add a rating last time so thought I'd better go back in and put top marks in for them.
John Smith, It is a beautiful area and the people are wonderful. You are obviously not the type of person who should be at this resort. It is a quiet village and this is explained in all the brochures I have read.
I'll second the comments by Sheila.
Vassilikos is an ideal resort for those of us who love Greece.
Those who want the nightlife can go to Lagannas, or better still somewhere other than Greece.
We did have an eartquake when we were there: about 35 miles away on the mainland and 6.4 on the Richter scale. The apartments rattled a bit but there were absolutely no problems as all the post 1953 buildings are designed to cope.
As far as ratings are concerned:
Thomas Cook: 0 (a big zero)
Rep: Less than zero.
Kostas at the Marina pool bar: 10
Flights: Night flight from Glasgow (originally booked with Direct Greece as day flight) Changed without any choice and didn't find out about day flight possibility until we saw it on the Departures notice board.
Many of our fellow passengers made us ashamed - load, foul-mouthed, drunk and obscene and no attempt by the cabin crew to control them.
Oh dear John - My wife and I have been going to this village for more than 10 years. Yes it is quieter than a lot of resorts, but that is why we go back!!!! There is no secret that Greek Islands (and the mainland) suffer from occasional earth tremors - we've had a few - but there is never much damage. Tinika in the supermarket you mention is only safeguarding her stock. The holiday was simply the wrong choice FOR YOU.
Really worried about the comments of John Smith on May 12th. I have booked a holiday there for July with Direct Greece. Why should there be a crack in the building do they get earth tremours there?? Not too worried about it being quiet because that how I like it. So has anyone else been there and noticed the crack!!
Don't go to this hotel. there is no staff to help you out and no reception area if your flight is after the 12noon check out.
We've not been that late,but Tinika in the deli has told us it's quite alright still.
Going here mid October, what's the weather and resort like at this time?
Just came back from Katerina Apartments - the place was very pretty and the John and Joanna at the Marina pool snack bar were lovely. Spent a lot of time at the pool and it was very quiet. Hope to go back again soon.
Very clean, maid service 3 times a week (change sheets and clean towells, etc). Our Reps Jenny and Gemma were brilliant.
