Location - Excellent

Quietness  - Good

Cleanliness - Excellent (friendly cleaning lady)

We stayed at the Marina Apartments in September 2007 -  a last minute booking with Olympic Holidays and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Departure flight left early from Gatwick and we were in the resort just after lunchtime.  We found the apartments to be clean, in a nice location, within five minutes walk of the shops, beach and excellent restaurants.  We agree with other comments that the cooking facilities are pretty useless but who wants to cater for yourself when there is so much choice at very reasonable prices.  Our favourites were La Galera (below the apartments), Symposium on the front and Victor's Sunrise Fish Taverna on the beach - turn right at the beach and it is the last one you come to. Hot water available the whole fortnight.  Can also thoroughly recommend the Rat Pack evening at one of the hotels past Symposium - the singer has a great voice - with a few Rod Stewart and Beatles numbers thrown in - free entrance and drinks no more expensive than anywhere else.  Say hello to Jack and Calligula for us - the two adorable cats from up the road - they are rather partial to Sainsburys Taste the Difference Ham - but beware of Jack's claws, he is a vicious little devil.
