Okay so the location of the apartments is a very handy 5mn walk down a winding woad to the lively strip but that is the only positive element about mon repos.
3 of us girls came here in the beginning of july 2011. i have never stayed in such an unwelcoming money grabbing environment in my whole life. our studio apartment wasnt the greatest, but thats what you get for a cheapish price, however the bathroom had a mosquito nest in the top corner and when we asked for it to be removed sakis(the owner) was sure we where lying and refused to look. also the shower curtaibn is faaar too short for the base of the shower so be prepared for a nonstop wet bathroom floor (perfect breeding ground for mozzies).
on the 2nd morning we went down to the bar and orderd english breakfasts..omg! never seen or tasted anything so vile for such extortion. we payed for self catering at mon repos yet they work a system where a metal fob is attached to your key which activates the electricity so when you leave of course the fridge and lights will turn off meaning all your food in the fridge will turn bad.
me and my girls where on a tight budget and the air con is 70euros per week so we thought we would just sleep with the windows open and risk getting bitten alive, yet to our shock when we pulled the fridge out their is a hidden radiator behind it to increase the heat levels to con you into buying air con!! dont do it!!
on our second to last night we went down to the bar and asked for a cork screw, as we hadnt been provided with one to open our drinks. zakis got so angry that we werent buying his alcohol and had the cheek to ask for what we should have been provided with in the first place that he opened out wine and threw the cork at me before walking away furiously.
on the last night a promoter came along to drop us tickets to the white party event and this insane zakis man came sprinting from the other end of the pool chasing and swearing at the ticket promoter saying hes not allowed anywhere near the apartments. at this point it was very clear he hated us lol ! we decided to brush it off and have a good last night in zante. but in the morning when i asked for our 50 euro deposit and passport back he charged 30euros for an apparently missing 'mug glass and spoon' when i refused to pay he literally nerly fell over the bar trying to attack me. he never gave the full money but gave (what i thought) was my passport until getting to the airport and reaising he had switched mine over with another girl staying there!!! we had to rush back spending another 30euro on cab, and when we got back he had mysteriously gone out somewhere. we eventually got my correct passport and flew home sweet home.
seriously people dont go here, so many hotels/apartments around the area all close to the strip i wouldnt reccomend this to my enemy
