I have just been back to Fata Morgana for a few days' holidays. The hotel is located just before the Frangokastello site. It consists of two storey blocks of appartments built in an olive grove. Just below the hotel lies a superb beach! The place is clean and well looked after, with very friendly staff. E.g. as we were waiting... More

It is located at a magical place with sand dunes right below leading to a shallow water sandy beach. The location is amazing and there is not much else to do but relax. The beach is excellent for small kids since the water is shallow and sandy. Rooms are clean spacious with breathtaking views. There are bikes available with no... More

We have been many times to this complex. Nice clean studios with super view of the sea, a fantastic beach where you can have privacy in August and a very nice taverna to eat and relax with perfect view of the sea shore and dunes! Excellent value for money very kind owners daily cleaning.

Many thanks to our hosts who were extremely helpful and friendly. Very nice rooms, beautiful olive trees, gorgeous sea view and perfect sandy beach for small kids especially. The only problem we faced was long way from Heraklion and sometimes wind which can be not too comfortable on the sand beach. But crystall clear sea and perfect accomodation is worth... More

Excellent and friendly service together with the extraordinary location makes this the perfect holiday destination for us. The olive trees are beautiful and let the buildings look smaller, which adds to feeling at home. A good addition is the car rental service that the family started this year.

We highly appreciated our stay: the friendly atmosphère, the beauty of the place, the surrounding, the beach, the appartment, for calm and resourcing holidays We think that the name of the place "paradiso" is perfectly adequate Beautiful view on the sea side from the spadeful balcony which make the apartment larger and open to the sky : to stand in...

We like this friendly place with its olive trees and the well situated appartments so much. This is why we have been coming back every year for five years now. The food in the restaurant is excellent.

We have found the dream destination in Fata Morgana. Why? The property is in a relatively remote area and that explain its serenity and secluded feeling. The accommodation is far from luxurious but we had everything we needed and more. The only possible problem was about the quite hard mattress. We loved the amazing location just few steps away from... More

We had a fantastic holiday here but there is virtually no information on the website and no guidelines when you arrive, so I have tried to fill in the gaps below. Owners are hands-on and very friendly and welcoming. Location is in the middle of the owners olive grove. Very simple but well done. No pool, gym etc. We had... More
