Many cruisers have complained about the high prices of the marina. Also there have been complaints about the marina's restricted policies on working on the boat.

Other complaints voiced are: The potable fresh water system (blue plylons) is plagued by breakdowns ( out 2 weeks ago for about a week ) although 'regular' water (faucets on dock) is available it comes complete with its own supply of pipe plocking calcium deposit.

In summer the Marina is seriously hot and plagued by mozzies from undrained swampy ground nearby. Several super-yachts and the beautiful people visit, ho hum. In winter the wind comes straight off the Albanian snow capped mountains and it can be seriously cold so you will need a good heating setup.

A good place to leave a boat for a quick trip home as there are frequent flights. Be sure to have a bicycle as the transit berths are a hike from the entrance. The chandlery is quite good. --Monterey June 2011
