Villa Eva's outdoor area is wonderful! The view is spectacular, and the pool area is so nice. The flowers and garden are very well maintained. The location is perfect, as you can easily walk down to the beach, markets, bars, etc...but you still get the benefits of being up a hill and somewhat removed from the busyness of the main street. There are beautiful outdoor sitting areas to enjoy the view, with a lovely BBQ. The hosts were very sweet, and brought us a welcome gift when we arrived. The kitchens were stocked very well with cooking utensils, cutlery, and even blenders, toasters, etc...
The villa's themselves were comfortable, but a bit rough around the edges. The decor is very old fashioned and many of the bathrooms are very dark. It's very echoey inside, the noise carries throughout the house (I suggest earplugs). The hot water was inconsistent. Sometimes it was boiling hot, and other times there was no hot water at all. The internet wifi strength was the same, it would go in and out. The best wifi signal was actually out by the pool (which was very convenient!), but it didn't work very well in the rooms. One of the main issues we had, was that even though the hosts were very friendly, they did not speak any English, and we did not have anyone to translate Greek. So we had a very difficult time dealing with any of our needs that came up. For instance, we brought wifi extenders to make the wifi signal stronger, but it took us a week to communicate with our hosts enough to find out where the modem was so that we could hook them up. The representatives from Thehotelgr helped us a little bit, but without someone nearby who could speak English, it was challenging to get our needs met. Also, the cleaning schedule was very random, and we had issues with the details. We never knew when she was going to come, and if she was going to restock things like toilet paper and garbage bags. So we ended up just buying all that stuff ourselves.
We really enjoyed our stay! There were some issues here and there, but overall we had a great time. Thank you!
