We stayed in Socrates from Aug 8 - Aug 16 2005. We stayed in appartment no. 14 too. This was indeed a lovely appartment as far as the view was concerned. The sink apparently hadn't been fixed properly, because when we were there it was clogged up too. Upon arrival we found there was no shower curtain, we reported this to the reception, and the next day we had one. So on that point the service was good. A major positive point about this appartment, we felt, was the location, you are just outside of the busy area. A negative point is the awful bad, it was rockhard and it creaked constantly. We had lovely evening meals at Med Version and Vezal restaurant. We can recommend renting a motor (scooter) to drive around the island with. All in all Socrates certainly can be recommended if your expectations aren't too high and you want a reasonably priced holiday.
