Hi Chris, we retrned from the Crystal Palace on August 7th, there were a number of families with young children aged 3-5. Nikos who owns the complex will have planned which room will be most suitable for you, and it looked like the families seemed to have ground floor apartments. None of the families complained about the rooms being non child friendly and the children were always in the pool, you will be ok. The complex is located just outside Skala (10 min walk) and it is built on a hill that offers total seculsion. Therefore be prepared for long walks into town for water, meals etc and a hike back to the complex for the last part of the walk back. A lot of families hired cars for some of the time allowing them to get out more. The apartments are great and cleaned every day with clean linen provided and no one faulted the complex.
As of 7th August all bars etc were open for business, there was no damage to properties around Skala. The fire damage outside and on the edges of the town was severe, with fire damage from the hills right down to the coastal road. Quite a lot of the people staying were evacuated for one night so it must have been bad. However, at no time did this spoil our holiday and having arrived 4 days after the event (31/7) the whole event was a distant memory for the locals and they did not discuss the fire. In summary, nothing to worry about.
