We love staying at Alexandra Apartments! This is our 3rd year here and each year gets better and better. The family who run the apartments are wonderful, warm and friendly and willing to go out of their way for you. Plus, mamma's cooking is to die for! If you play your cards right, she might bring a special dish up for you. It's homemade Greek food at it's best, that was the icing on the cake for us!
In terms of location and amenities, the apartment is literally about 30 meters (if that!) from the beach, close to everything you need like a supermarket, convenience shops, ATMs, car and bike / quadbike hire firms, bars, restaurants and of course the local club Monte Cristo. The apartment comes with WIFI, Sky TV (from lots of different countries, we managed to catch all the UK TV we watch at home which was a bonus. No missing out on any of our favourite shows), an iron, hairdryer, air conditioning (a Godsend when the temperatures spiked) and regular cleaning of the apartment and refreshing of the sheets and towels.
The great thing about Alexandra Apartments is that it's got the best of both worlds, while it's smack bang in the midst of Ipsos on the strip, it's raised up so makes you feel like you are in your own special oasis away from the masses.
With this apartment, you get - options. It's within a stone's throw of the beach making it easy to pop over to the beach even for a quick 30 minute sunbathe, or pop back to grab anything you've forgotten. With the sea views and peaceful surroundings though, you don't always bother heading over to the beach. We spent some of our days blissfully sunbathing on the huge terrace with our own sea views, listening to music and chilling out every so often running down the stairs and across the way to dip into the sea when we got too warm.
We love staying here, we've stayed in a few other places in Ipsos and Barbati and I have to say Alexandra Apartments is our favourite place to stay. If you want the best of both worlds in terms of convenient location, sea views, close to the beach shops, bars and restaurants but still peaceful and private, then I recommend you stay here. The Ipsos strip is busy and active which we liked but this apartment means you don't have to choose between the craziness of Ipsos and a relaxing holiday. You can have a busy, fun, chilled, relaxed and amazing holiday in a comfortable Apartment with it's own (huge) terrace with amazing views.
