The previous comment Sept 2006 re Anastasia Apartments is very misleading - don't let it put you off! We stayed in Room 15 (basement ?) in June & what we got was a sun terrace twice the size of the upper balcony rooms & with an umbrella. Yes, we needed the brollie since the sun shone on our terrace all day! Hotel was very quiet - in fact the owners were only visible when you needed them. We overlooked the front with what seemed our own gardens and you couldn't be any nearer the beach (2 minutes away) Owners very trusting, with an outside fridge stocked with beer,water, etc on a trust you to pay basis. A fault to some may be that there's no in room TV but we were happy to avoid this for 2 weeks. There is a large LCD TV in the bar area anyway. Cleaners were always on site - worth a tip for their efforts. Resident kitten was loved by everone - animal lovers will end up feeding her and I sat for hours reading with her on my knee. Everyone who goes for a quiet break with sun & sea in mind will love this hotel. Mossy screens built into the room patio doors is a plus since the window can be left open at night. There is also air con if you want to pay a little extra. Use the safe - they are in the main bar at small charge since cleaners try to help keep the rooms cool by leaving the patio door open after cleaning - ok on upper floors but not so on ground. Hire cars via Thomsons cheap (3+1 days at 150 for a new Corsa with air con, 5 doors, cd radio, etc - ask for John) We will be going back soon! Owners even charge less on the beach for sunbeds ( usually 6 - they charge 5).

The photograph in the Thomson brochure and on their website is very old and misleading. Since this was taken the owners have added another flooor to Anastasia, namely a sub-basement. Thomsons state that all rooms have a sea or mountain view - this is untrue as the five new rooms in this sub-basement cannot see either the mountains or the sea as the garden/ground level is at least 2 feet higher than the room floor level. Thomsons also state that all rooms have a balcony - this is also untrue as the ones below ground have what they call a garden terrace and if you are unlucky enough to get one of these rooms facing the sea then your terrace will be in total shade from about 10am each day. The rooms in question are numbered 11-15 as 1-5 are on the first level and 6-10 are on the top floor - a point which proves that 11-15 have been added later. Bearing this in mind the standard of the apartment was very good, clean and modern but there should be a significant price difference between rooms 1-10 and 11-15. Thomsons put a balcony disclaimer in their brochure small print saying that a balcony might be a garden terrace if the room is on the ground floor so make sure that you book a room with a number less that 11 or you will be extremely disappointed. The Thomson reps were given every opportunity to correct their mis-selling in the resort and they and the isalnd manager chose to ignore the complaint so we went to arbitration and won! We will never travel with this company again. The resort of Golden Beach is ok if you want a fairly quiet and relaxed holiday and travel by public transport to other parts of the island is easy and cheap, enjoy your holiday but don't let Thomsons rip you off because their staff are too incompetent to notice that the accommodation they are offering is not as described or shown in the brochure.
