The location was really good for access to the beach and restaurants. Upgraded to a ‘sea view’ balcony which could have been better if the view wasn’t obstructed by a palm tree. The apartment was very large with 2 twin beds plus a single (beds were very hard). There is a lot of underused space which could have been taken up to improve the so called kitchenette. The kitchenette was a complete disappointment, no oven, no grill, no toaster, with only a large and a small ring to use for catering purposes. The kettle was a cheap plastic unit that didn’t switch off when boiled and the handle got very hot so you couldn’t pick it up. We asked for a toaster and got a sandwich maker which sort of worked eventually. Considering that the room could sleep 3, their were a few omissions in the cupboards, ie only one wine glass. No ironing board or iron, no safe etc. We did enjoy our stay but really would have liked to cook bacon and eggs for breakfast, with toast. Maria and Issabella couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly.

Myself and my partner were accommodated here at short notice instead of the Irida Apartments after a major blunder by Love Holidays. Receptionist was friendly and efficient and, understanding our dilemma, also offered us the choice of accommodation in it's sister building, The Maria Apartments which was situated nearer to the centre of the town.We opted for The Scala and were pleased to have as it turned out to be a great little place to stay and we were pleased that they could fit us in at such short notice. We were put into a large room (106) with a sea and town view, which was big enough for 4 people. The room had all the necessary items if you wanted to make your own food including a hob and a fridge.The air conditioning although not hugely effective was adequate to keep the room relatively cool in 30°C heat outside and it was free of charge unlike some places which charge for it. The shower was very efficient and easy to set the temperature. Balcony was huge and benefitted from the afternoon sun and had a great view of the town below. The beds were some of the most comfortable we'd ever slept in. The pool is a little small when compared to some others but seems to be in the sun all day. Because of the size of the pool we opted to go down to the beach every day which is literally a 3-4 minute walk. This has to be one of the most charming bays in the area and the sea was incredibly clear and warm. WiFi was included free and worked throughout the hotel and in the room. Hotel is in a great location and was far enough away from the town to be very quiet at night. Parking was also available outside the hotel if you decided to hire a car, which we did. A couple of minor points. If you have mobility problems it can be a bit of a climb up to the Scala from the town. The jacuzzi stopped working on day 4 of our stay and still wasn't working when we left. And there was a dreadful smell of excrement right next to our room. There was a small flower bed next to our door and it looked like some of the local cats (dozens of them) had been using the flower bed as a toilet. The heat made the smell even worse. Maybe could have been cleaned out every few days to cure this. I can't help thinking that the hotel staff must have been aware of the smell as they walked past it. Maybe towels could have been changed more frequently as opposed to every 3 days. Other than that a great little place to stay in a great location with many positives. Great room. Great Staff. Great Location. Free WiFi. Quiet Location. Big Balcony. I'd definitely go back if I visit the area again.

We are staying for a week and want to say that if you are thinking of staying here or are fortunate enough to have already booked you're in for a treat. Besides the very high standard of cleanliness, very warm and concerned hospitality it is perfectly positioned in the absolutely delightful village of Agia Pelagia. We give Scala an excellent rating.

A very warm welcome with a cup of coffee, we had a room with a sea view where we were very happy with. It had two separate beds with very good matrasses, not too hard like in most places in Agia Pelagia. And the airconditioner/heater worked well. Most places also have not got any hot water when the sun does not shine, but here there is an electric supply, so you always can have a warm to hot shower. We had a shower above a bath, so we could take both. Our appartment had a seperate, kitchen livingroom bit. With two pit cooker and a fridge. Our Balcony had lovely sunlight in the evening. What in high season will be very nice, because in day time it will be cooler with a nice wind in the evening to cool off. When ever you need something you only had to ask the friendly staff, they would do everything to make you happy! It is a real holiday feeling surrounded by good friends.
