I stayed in the dreaded room 11....ok, yes there was a moth-ball smell, I suspect it came from the old wooden wardrobe. Ventilation did open into the cleaners store room. But I have to say, what do you expect from a self-catering room ? Surely, if it is clean as this room was, it is somewhere to put your head down on a night.If your expectations are more, then may I suggest you stay in a hotel rather than self-accom.
The veranda did not have a view of the lagoon as do the first floor ones but so what ! :-) I had an orange tree and the small garden, it was a quiet, pleasant place to sit and enjoy a drink...Of course you could always sit in the "Bandstand" gazebo, although it would benifit from a light when it becomes too dark. the minas is well placed for both shops and tavernas. Our rep Mary Leonard was superb, she was so friendly and helpful, well she is a yorkshire lass !! If you want a good base to stay whilst exploring this wonderful island then try the Minas
I enjoyed Zorba's, both on dance nights and non-dance ones.
The waiters are friendly, as for previous comments regarding cats, I agree, just ignore them they soon wander off - do not feed them.
Christo who leads the dances has endless energy and seems genuine in his enthusiasm. Yes, Zorba's music is repeatative, but so what...you have a good atmosphere and surely it is good to witness different nationalities laughing and enjoying each others company ?
I loved Celphalonia and I enjoyed Zorba's and I believe reader you will too
