Could be improved
I have been to Almyrida several times and after booking wished to tell friends living there the holiday address. Trying to elicit the address was like drawing teeth. Finally after several misleading or incomplete contacts I obtained the correct address not long before flight departure. Why?
Firstly, the nice. Good location short walk to centre,shops beach, bars, restaurants. Great views from spacious balcony. Well kept pool . loads of loungers. Well equipped kitchen. Washing machine Fridge/freezer etc .all in good working order Some bottled water and fresh milk in fridge awaiting our arrival --- a nice touch. aircon very efficient (except in 2nd bedroom ) WiFi good and it came free,which was an unexpected bonus
Secondly, the not so good.The flat is dated .some damp and smells originated from the first bathroom, where there is no ventilation to outside or extractor fan. There was no information pack--- a quick guide to how things work would have been handy eg. what to do with full rubbish bins. On a 2 week holiday but there was no, cleaning or linen change.Plenty of towels but many worn out. Dvd worked fine but could not get any Tv channels. Wendy said would send someone to sort it but nobody came --but this was no great deal
This Accomodation could be greatly improved with a little TLC and better communication with guests. Not sure this going to happen though as the same comments often appear in previous reviews. A shame
Almyrida is a great place for a relaxing holiday. Great tavernas serving excellent food. Beaches are good The view from the apartment is lovely. The property has everything you need. Nice pool clean and quiet. Large veranda. Bathrooms could do with a makeover and some of the sheets replacing but everything else good. Walk to beach is down hill so up coming back which could be a problem for guests who find walking difficult. Overall a great holiday place I would definitely recommend.
The view from the terrace is fantastic however we found the apartment in need of some TLC. On our arrival one of the Air Con units was not working, one of the beds had broken slats and the oven was not connected properly and came away from the wall. We reported these to Wendy and they were fixed over the next few days. As mentioned in previous reviews the main bathroom (which is very small) has no ventilation or extractor fan so in constantly damp and smelly. The WIFI was intermittent and we had use of it for about 7 days out of the 14. The satellite TV is mainly Arabic or French stations with BBC world News being the only English Channel. We were woken at 7am every morning by the builders. Noise from the apartment below was also an issue, we could hear shouting, screaming and movement of furniture from the family that occupied it. The young boy from this apartment was constantly eating and dropping food into the pool. The final straw was when the water went off several times leaving us with no running water at all. The longest we had to endure this was for 36 hours and we had to use the water from the swimming pool to top up the toilet cisterns so we could flush the toilets. Eventually Wendy provided a solution by allowing us to visit another property she owns which was about a 45 minute drive away. In my opinion this is not the high quality accommodation as suggested in the property description. All in all a holiday to forget.
Dear Emma, We are disappointed that you are not happy with your stay in our apartment. Unfortunately, On the dates you have mentioned, there was a rare issue with both the mains water supply and the internet signal in the whole of the Almyrida region. We provided you with alternative facilities in another villa which is not in the affected area. At the time, you informed us you were more than happy with our efforts in remedy the situation.
We were surprised to learn that you were seeking compensation after you have returned from your holiday. Within our capacity we did offer you compensation, but we are not able to agree to more compensations that you are seeking now. As a result, we were even threatened with a bad review. Please understand all of this happenings were as the result of force majeure, Events beyond our control. We will also like to point out that the faults that you have pointed out: eg: the air-con, the broken bed slats, the oven were all fixed immediately within the same day that you have complained. We did everything within our power to make sure your stay in our apartment were as comfortable as possible but the other events you mentioned were out of our control. I hope you understand.
Traumhafte Terrasse mit Meerblick
Die Terrasse ist sehr groß und man hat einen traumhaften Blick auf den Ort und das Meer. Der Pool ist groß und sauber und man kann darin schwimmen! Salzwasser, wie in der Beschreibung angegeben, hat er aber keines.
Die Bäder sind etwas klein, aber dafür gibt es ja zwei davon. Alles in allem perfekt zum Erholen. Auch das schöne Städtchen Chania ist nur eine halbe Autostunde entfernt.
Beautiful views but building site next door
We booked last October and had many email correspondence before our trip. We arrived to the apartment to a very smelly property, it smelt like it had not been aired out over the winter. The sheets and bedding were damp and not nice to sleep in. Mould was in the picture frames - big green mould!! It looked like the whole apartment had not been given a refresh at all. We had to call in the caretaker twice because of a continuous running toilet which was so loud. There was no information about the property, ie where to put bins, the local area,how to use oven, you know,the usual information you read when you rent a holiday home. The swimming pool had green residue which one of the holiday tennants needed to clean, the whole area looked very inloved and not refreshed, we were very disppointed. And the most disappointing partof our holiday is that ther eis a 51 bed hotel being built right next door. Builders were working with machinery from 7.45 all day long, there was no peace on the balcony, there was dust,all you can expect from a building site. Awful noise and I was very upset that Wendy did not advise us of this building affecting us right next door. We spoke to holiday tennants next door and they felt exactly the same about their apartment - damp and noisy with the builders. Apparently the winter has been wet and harsh this year, but even so, airing the apartment, making sure no mould and a good clean before guests arrive and of course advising about building sites!!! Some of the apartments have been closed because of the building noise and dust. Wendy should have checked the apartment before guests arrive. I would not stay here again because of the mould and noise issue.
Dear Nicky and Tim, I’m so sorry about the issues you have had while you are on holiday in my apartment. The cleaner should have spotted the Mould inside the picture frame. Now the picture has been replaced. Because we have had extreme wet winter, although the apartment was aired two weeks before your arrival, unfortunately the then still very damp atmosphere did not do much. That’s also the reason of the sheets feeling damp after being on the bed for more than half day. The toilet system was broken after you are there for a few days and was fixed on the same day. The building work in Crete should only be carried out in winter periods. Thank you for point out of those issues, I will work harder and pay more attention to details in the future.
Lovely village and nice apartment.
The apartment was well equipped and comfy with really superb views across the sea and upwards to the still snow-capped white mountains.
We went right at the beginning of the season when the weather was still a little cool following a harsh winter. This meant the apartment was cold and a bit damp and a plug in radiator would have been welcome as the aircon didn’t seem to want to blow hot air. The shower rooms could have done with brighter lights and the main bathroom could have benefitted from and extractor fan as it got very wet with no where for the moisture to go. Also somewhere to store your toothbrush other than above the loo would be good!
Communication with Wendy was slow initially when I had received nothing about entry details until I chased as I got on the plane on our way there; but she was superbly responsive throughout our stay.
