We went here in September 2006 and this was no leisurely trip. Rats were all over the rooof, the appartments flooded with water after stormy weather (even on the 1st floor!!!) and our stuff was stolen by the cleaning ladies, just stuff like deodorant and washing-up liquid, so daily groceries. Strange people. The owner could only say: "Stay here". We complained about the situation with the hostess who promished she would try to improve the situation, but unfortunately she didn't. Furthermore we were told that things would improve in years to come with this owner, but after having read all those stories, I don't get that impression. The island wasn't the problem, as it was really beautiful. The beach was a disappointment though. Exploring the island by yourself by car or by scooter is the best. Our holiday wasn't all miserable thanks to the friendly people on the island (apart from a few) and a nice couple we met in Pigi. Zakhynthos - YES. Pigi - Never. We really cannot recommend the place.
