We booked the two bedroom apartment through Ionian Holidays for a relaxing week away....we were slightly concerned due to the last review that we had read on here!! We would both advise to ignore the bad comments on the last review.
The transfers to the apartments took us straight to the apartment where our hire car was waiting for us. Also waiting to greet all of the guests was Rose who is lovely.
The apartment itself was very clean and there was everything that you needed including a washing machine!! The welcome hamper was also great and had all you needed for when you first arrive there!! The bathroom is very basic but it is very clean and has eveything that you need.....what else can you expect when you are visiting a small greek island...if you want something modern then I advise going to a 5* hotel!! This part of the island is very traditional so why try to change something that doesnt need changing!! The kitchen has everything that you will need the only thing is that when we were using the hobs they turned off after so long to cool down...but this didnt cause any major problems. Our only little moan is that mattress was not comfortable but we still managed to sleep.
The vehicle we had was sufficient for travelling on the island, the majority of the roads are very windy and occassionally steep, the vehicle coped very well.
Overall we had a fabulous holiday and would definately return back there and would recommend these apartments to anyone.

Stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. Flight and transfer very good. Interior of the 2 bedroom apartment very very basic. Living room contained a sofa and two wooden sided chairs and a coffee table - very uncomfortable and not at all welcoming. Bathroom reminded me of Greece 20 years ago - basic shower with curtain, unplastered ceiling - bucket with mop in the corner to dry spillage from the shower. However good supply of hot water - bedrooms basic but OK - kitchen also OK but very old fashioned and basic. We had been told the apartments had been recently refurbished - but no signs of this inside - did have new plastic windows and metal screens - air conditioning was good.
Pool area very pleasant. Fiskardo was about a 10 minute drive away and that was very pretty with good range of tavernas etc. Could have done with a little live music. Saw other apartments in central Fiskardo that were much better furnished and equipped. Our apartment did have a very fine view. In all we had a good holiday but it would have been even better if we had stayed somewhere else. We had group 2 car - would recommend upgrading as engine was straining in this very hilly - but beautiful - island. Booked via Ionian Island Holidays - not good value for money

What a beautiful complex of 9 apts/studios. We booked this holiday through Ionian Island Holidays and they were very efficient throughout.

The apartment was fully equiped apart from no coffee perculator. The 'welcome hamper' was a bit of a disappointment because there was only 4 small pkts of coffee and sugar, 4 teabags, 4 miniture packs of butter and 2 mini packets of jam. There was a small carton of milk plus a bottle of white wine, water, a can of beer and 3 cans of soft drinks. You need to take your own coffee etc or buy it from the supermarket in Manganetsa village.

The pool was beautiful well cared for and immaculately clean. There is a big problem with the wasp population and you need to take plenty of insect repellant.

The Ionian staff were really excellent and helpful in the resort.

There is an excellent taverna in Manganetsa village called the Ionian Taverna. Superb food, a lovely hostess and staff, good wine, excellent Greek entertainment on Tuesday nights and the most fantastic sunsets to be seen from the terrace - this is must.

A word of warning do not be taken in by the hype for Nicholas's Taverna in Fiskardo. I feel that he is living on the old memories of the days of Captain Corilli's Mandolin being filmed there. We wanted a special night out on our last Friday night and booked a table at Nicholas's, we were promised entertainment of music and Greek dancing - what a disappointment. The food was dreadful, the service diabolical, not even piped music accompanied our meal and it was grossly over priced. This spoilt an otherwise perfect holiday.

Apart from that we had a super holiday and would definately recommend this island.
