The pool has panoramic views over the harbour and across the sea to the Albanian coast and mountains with plenty of comfortable sunbeds and a childrens pool.
The poolside bar is up a few steps from the main pool area and has a pool table, games, plenty of shade if you want it and fantastic food, some of which is prepared by Christos' mama using fresh herbs and vegetables from their small allotment on the hillside above the bar.
Christos is exemplary as 'mine host' and will do anything and everything possible to make your stay as enjoyable as he can. He will also ensure that you have the very best apartment possible at the time of your booking.
If you're going to Kassiopi, go to Dimas!

Chris took charge of my case and lugged it up the hill to block D where our studio was situated. We did get used to that climb after a couple of days and I saw it as a good way to keep in shape after much overdosing on food and drink.
The studio was basic (as are most in Greece) but spotless and the view was to die for. We were housed in one of the upper studios with our balcony directly overlooking the harbour which was a stone's throw away. We breakfasted on the balcony most mornings watching the sun emerge over the harbour and to the sights and sounds of the birds nesting in the crevices of our roof.
Our studio was really big with a shower room (hand held shower), kitchen area consisting of mini oven; fridge; 2 ringed electric hob and small breakfast bar with 2 chairs and sleeping area with twin beds; 2 bedside units; 4 draw chest of drawers and a wardrobe. There were glass double doors leading onto the balcony.
Maid service was frequent and efficient and we could keep our room on until 6.pm on day of departure for 25 euros.
There was no lounge or reception area and the only bar was the pool bar which Chris and his mum ran so well. This bar acted as a sort of reception and Chris was only too happy to assist with any problems if they arose (we never had any).
The pool bar had a varied menu in snacks and made a mean Greek Salad. It was also well stocked with drinks and they'd make a variety of coctails.
The pool must have been the best in Kassiopi, quite large, beautifully landscaped and high up affording yet more gorgeous views of the harbour and bay area. The sun loungers and parasols were free of charge.
As in most self catering accomodation there was no entertainment but it wasn't a problem because everything we wanted was right on the doorstep.
We were there in the first week of the season and although everything was up and running we didn't experience noise in the room at night. I would say however that maybe in high season this might not be the case because of the proximity of some of the bars.
Bearing in mind it is a 2 star property with limited facilities I would definitely recomend the Dimas.

We arrived under the cover of darkness, it's a long ride by coach from the airport.
We were shown to our rooms and were a bit taken aback by the steep climb, but it was good excercise!
The next morning we opened the windows and sat on the balcony, the view over the harbour was brilliant.
We knew where we wanted to go, the beach, so we went there... it was deserted.
The next day we bumped into Christos who showed us the pool and bar area. That was it, no more beach for us. The pool has a breathtaking view over the harbour, the pool was in superb condition.
It was a very family orientated block of apartments, and as we went out of season, the pool area was quite, I would not like to say what it was like in high season.
The bar area was clean and tidy. We ate there every lunch time. Christos's mum does all the cooking, so a real home made feel about it.
We had a studio apartment which was very basic, but clean and tidy, and as we were only sleeping there we weren't too concerned.
We would have tea and toast on the balcony and people watched.
On the second day our kettle decided to give up, so we saw Christos and told him. Within the hour it had been replaced.
On our last day we were very upset to be going home. We had met some brilliant people there and in the village.
When the coach was due to pick us up, Christos came to say goodbye, I can tell you there were tears all round, including my husband.
We were hearbroken to be leaving. I cannot recommend these apartments highly enough.
I have paid the deposit for May 2007 already.
