Had a really great time at the Mareva Apts. I mean, the apartments are basic and Yiannis (the joint owner) will be the first to admit that. But it literally doesn't matter, you'll have such a great time with Yiannis and his sister Areti, that you won't care. They are such lovely genuine people who offer such a unique stay... More

We arrived to find out that there was not a room for us as the internet site we booked through at the last minute had not put a stop sale on this accommodation when the owners had requested it. Yannis and his cousin were very apologetic and did everything they could to Make things easier for us. Yannis got us... More

We loved our stay here. The only reason it has 3 stars is because the facilities were quite limited and a lot was not working or missing. But what it lacked in attention to detail, it made up for in hospitality and it was super clean. Our apparment had a beautiful view. It was basic inside but clean. Our kitchen... More

yanis and family made you feel so welcome the minute you got to the villas! the 'hill' isn't as horrific as everyone makes out, five minutes up the hill to gorgeous restaurants and a little village five minutes down the hill to the beach shopping strip and bars. can't wait to go back again :-)

I have just returned from a week at the Mareva. The family are so friendly especially Yiannis they are helpful polite and can't do enough for you. The place is clean and typically Greek. Yiannis goes out of his way to help customers and even helps them out by giving them a lift up the hill. The only downside to... More

Very good value, friendly and clean hotel. The family run hotel makes you feel so very at home and completely go out of their way to keep their guests happy. We will miss their friendly faces, and we will definitely be going back. The position of the hotel is fantastic as you have the beautiful picturesque traditional Greek village with... More

Returned from here last Saturday - and what we have to say about the Mereva is what you have possibly already read on other reviews. The pictures show that the rooms are basic, which they are, however they are also very clean and comfortable, you do have the facilities to get by on a self catering holiday. What prompted us...

We arrived home from a two week stay at the Mareva Apartments on Saturday. And what a great two weeks it was. We like small family run places and this was up there with anywhere else we have stayed. Yiannis and Areti are lovely people and are always on hand for anything you need. Whether it's advice on where to... More

Having just got back from Crete we are already missing the Mareva and its relaxed setting. We arrived late Saturday night and Yiannis was ready and waiting for our arrival. We were quickly shown to the rooms and invited back to the bar for a drink. The apartments are best described as basic but that’s exactly what you are paying... More
