Another fantastic holiday at the Venus apartments with the Perakis family, can not fault anything. Rooms clean, tidy & well maintained. The most amazing pool & very well looked after. Breakfast was a great way to start the day & kept Daisy & I going most of the day. The Perakis family make you feel so welcome & nothing seems... More

My first stay at the Venus Apartments with the Perakis family. I couldn't fault it, the family made me feel very welcome, the rooms were spotless, lovely breakfasts and the pool area was second to none, very clean and very relaxing. I was a bit wary as the apartments are not actually in the town, they are a good ten... More

Just returned from yet another stay at the Venus. The apartments may not be a modern as others, they are clean and comfortable. The swimming pool remains well maintained with plenty of sun loungers and chairs. Overall,once again, I must highly recommend these apartments for independent travellers who enjoy being welcomed into the Cretan way of life.

A spotlessly clean pool awaits you at the Venus Apartments in Platanias. Most days we had the pool to ourselves, but even when others were there it was still a picture of tranquility. The owners were extremely hospitable and gave great advice about where to go and eat and where not to. There were lots of greek families and couples... More

These family-run apartments are spotlessly clean and neat. I've marked down the sleep quality because the beds are rather hard - that won't be unexpected if you've self-catered in Greece before. The swimming pool is a huge bonus - very clean and, more to the point, quiet! We quite often had the pool to ourselves but even if all guests... More

We booked these apartments following the earlier good reviews on trip advisor. The last two bad reviews do relate to somewhere else that has somehow got mixed up on here. The apartments are set back off the main road with not a lot surrounding it so there is no view of any description. My husband and I travelled with my... More

I knew this place would be basic l but I would not recommend it. The photos of the pool are not true as it is currently overgrown and the pool is full of bags of rubble and the shower is overgrown and has a distinct smell of sewage about it. The room was small and basic and although we asked... More
