Venus Apartments

Accommodation in Sidari

Laura N

Well what can I say about this accommodation, poor very poor, the wardrobe smelt musty/rancid (tried to air it out but it still smelt, informed the owner who said "what can I do", I even tried air freshner but it still did not work).  The mini oven was broken (i.e. the handle) and didn't work the whole time I was there, considering its self catering you'd have thought that everything would be in working order.  Also whilst staying at the Venus there was torrential rain/thunder/hailstones for what seemed like the whole day, water came gushing into my room, luckily there was a mop otherwise I'd be knackered as my clothes would've been ruined.  I had to put all the towels on the floor (to which I had to use one of my own from the UK) to suppress the water coming in (there was no guttering on the edge of the roof).  The cleaners didn't do a proper job either, they only changed my sheets twice (once when I go there and in the second week), they did not mop the floor (I had to do that..) You don't normally go on holiday to clean and mop your room continuously.  The light fittings were also poor and the walls seemed like they'd not had a touch of paint on them for sometime. 

If anyone is staying here, I would suggest you only eat breakfast there and spend the rest of the day out of the apartment/studio i.e. go on trips, eat in restaurants etc, then back to change for the evening out.
 
If Alex the owner can read this I would suggest the following to bring it up to a certain standard:-
 
1. Add guttering to the roof above the door to Room 4.
2. Arrange for the cooker in Room 4 to be mended.
3. Make sure the cleaners are cleaning the place properly.
4. Arrange for new lightshades to all lights in the room.
5. Generally all rooms to be re-painted.
6. A bracket for the shower head to fit into.
 
If the above is carried out I may consider going back to stay there next year, otherwise I'm going elsewhere in the resort.
 
Any one wishing to discuss the same can do so by emailing me at laura@needham1979.freeserve.co.uk or add me to your friends on MSN lauraneedham@msn.com 
 
Kind Regards
Laura Needham

 We started out in the Venus Studios/Music Bar for 2 weeks in May 2006.  This was the worst accomodation we've ever stayed at.  It certainly doesn't sound like the same place Hannah (see her review) stayed at as this was on a main busy road, it hasn't been decorated/updated or cleaned in at least 10 years!  

On arrival we were just told to go up to apartment 1 and the key was in the door, nice.  The floor hadn't been swept or mopped, the furniture was damaged and had bits missing and we are almost certain the bed linen had not been changed from previous occupants! We were also supplied 2 hand towels for 3 people...? When we asked for more towels we were told to buy them from a local shop!?? Ah well we thought we'd make the best of a bad start and that the bed linen and bins would be done soon.  No chance.  4 days on towels were dirty, we had to use one as a mat as the shower and toilet leaked.  The toilet seat didn't fit the toilet and you got pinched everytime you sat down.  My son got an eye infection which we are sure was caused by the dirty bedding.  We kept asking the owner when the room would be cleaned and at least empty the LOO bins, he kept saying twice a week.  It never happened. 

The wardobe smelt damp and fusty so we couldn't even unpack and the so called 'self catering' facilities were extremely poor.  Cutlery (what there was of it) was dirty.  Quite honestly I wouldn't put my dog in these studios, they need gutting. 5 days on we gave up and moved to the Akti Aphrodite which was a really lovely hotel.  We have posted a review on here separately as it deserves a great review.  As for the venus studios avoid it.  the bar and pool area are nice but it didn't make up for the filthy accomodation. This accomodation is NOT suitable for children because of the road out front.  you actually have to walk on the road to get to your apartment, and the cars and coaches make this quite scary. 

Sidari itself is ok, a bit busy/touristy for our tastes but there are some nice restaurants and bars.  You do get fed up with the 'touting' to get you into bars and restaurants and we were there in low season so I can't imagine the hassle in high season.  Canal D'amour is lovely and well worth a visit or two.
