This was our first time to Crete and booked the Maria and Sissi after reading through their reviews. We were not disappointed as they both lived upto their reputations. Sissi is a beautiful and quiet village where the locals are welcoming. The bigger towns are just a bus ride away so doesn't feel isolated. The Maria is family run and... More

It was a pleasure to return to this little hotel on the outskirts of Sissi. Ok, the rooms are small and basic, but so are the prices.If you want 5star luxury expect 5star prices. The rooms are cleaned to an exceptional standard by Barbara, the pool likewise by Giannis. I find the beds a little low ( something to do... More

Loved our room. Simple and clean with a view over the village to the mountains. overlooking lemon, orange and pomegranate trees.. Sissi is a wonderful place to stay,as yet unspoiled but yet enough to do...even the one a day bus to Iraklio. Hotel friendly enough and swimming pool clean and refreshing.

What a wonderful find!! Giannis and Sofia are exceptional hosts who work so hard to make you have the most fantastic stay. The apartments are a little walk from the main area which is so pleasant and quieter. The rooms as other people say, are basic, but then one isn't paying for 5 star accommodation. You have all you need... More

Rooms are dated and the toilet/shower (the swamp) needed refurbishing. It's a typical Greek self-catering which claimed garden views. Unfortunately we couldn't find them. The hotel, the bar and pool area is very clean and the food menu had nothing greek. So we ate out for the two weeks. The owners are affable and polite. The drinks are reasonably priced.... More

Have been coming here for a few years on and off. My last visit was 5 years ago. This time i came with my daughter. With Maria Apts what you see is what you get. Its basic Greek standard accommodation, but the important point is the warmth and welcome from the host, Giannis and his family..........right down to the maid.... More

Can thoroughly recommend a visit to Maria Hotel -especially if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday. Day or night,Giannis and Sophia are on hand to serve drinks, snack meals or welcome you to the barbeque or stifado nights-not to be missed! Clean, comfortable rooms (there cannot be a harder-working cleaner in Greece than Barbara!) nice pool, sunbeds and... More

Our second visit to these fab apartments of which I believe there are only27 . Gianni and Sophia are still lovely, nothing is too much trouble for them. Food and drink when you need it all reasonably priced. The rooms are basic but Barbara keeps them spotlessly clean as is the rest of the hotel. Gianni is always cleaning the... More
