About Richard Logan

Richard Logan purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Richard Logan chose Gioiosa Ionica
We fell in love with this region of Italy. The locals are friendly and welcoming and the area remains unspoilt. When we saw this property, it was perfect. Its close to the beach and has a huge Pool,which is great for the girls. It is also within walking distance of many restaurants, which means we get to eat out regularly!
A refundable damage deposit of 100 euros is taken at the time of booking. This will be returned to the guest once the property has been inspected by our property manager no later than 1 week after the departure date.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
My stay at the apartment
The property is advertised as being air conditioned and I understood this to mean the bedrooms were air conditioned. They were not and were uncomfortable as a result.
There was a very nice pool to use but there were no sun beds available for the apartment. There were two long chairs and for a n apartment advertised as sleeping six, this was insufficient. I was staying with two other adults so the problem was obvious.
I first learnt of the cleaning charges two days before I left. I learnt the amount the night before I left. I sent a message to the owner as soon as I heard about the cleaning charges but have never had a reply. These should have been specified as part of the rental or set out as payable on site. I was asked for 50 euros, which I paid but considered excessive.
Thank you for staying at Bergamotto.
im Very sorry about the sun beds. There are usually two at the apartment. We were there only two weeks before you and use them ourselves so I’m not sure where they have gone. I will need to get them replaced. There is air conditioning in the living room and as the apartment is small, we have found to be sufficient when the doors are kept open. The fans in the bedrooms also help with the temperature. I will amend the description to highlight this. With regard to the cleaning fee, this is clearly highlighted on the website. Could you also please check your messages as i received nothing. . I do always respond to queries as you can see from the other reviews above. I would like to thank you for paying for the outdoor light that you reversed in to . Please feel free to contact me directly regarding the cleaning fee and I’ll show you where it is shown on the website.
