The Nikos appartments were great, we couldn't have asked for any better.
We and our friends each had the two bedroom appartments which were nice & spacious, once of the rooms had the wardrobe & dressing table & the other had plenty of room for the travel cot to go in. They were very clean with the maid coming in every day except Sunday & I think the sheets must have been changed every 3 days or so. The bathroom floor got so wet after a shower & they ask you not to use their towels on the floor & there was nothing to mop it up or push the water into the drain so it was a little dangerous, we just kept the bathroom door shut at all times to avoid an accident!
Nikos & his family were very hospitable & loved our children to spend time playing with their two girls. They also allowed us to make use of their barbeque which I would highly recommend with meat bought from the 2nd butchers as you go into Sammi town, very tasty kebabs & burgers. We had full use of the Pericles hotel facilities which was just up the lane although even with the pool bar we preferred to stay at the Nikos apartments when we didn't have the car.I would definitely recommend car hire to see the island & to get to the beaches & the walk into Sami is about 20mins, no paths until you get into Sami town but its ok if you all walk in single file, we made sure an adult was at the front & back of the line! If you really don't like the walk, the taxi is only about 3 Euros although there aren't many taxi's in Sami when the ferry comes in. If you are wanting to pay by visa for your meal, ask that they accept it first as we got caught out & thankfully our friends had some spare Euro's on them! We would definitely go back & certainly consider Nikos appartments again.
