Just back from a week at Ideal apartments in Kokkini Hani, friendly staff, very clean, very hospitable and helpful with requests. Excellent taverna attached to apartments. Can't do any better for self catering in Kokkini Hani.

We stayed in June with my parents (in a different apartment) and teenage daughter. Very impressed overall. The apartments though basic as you expect in Greek self catering,are spacious and very clean. Unlike other reviewers we found the beds firm but comfy and the cleaner who came in every other day bought us extra pillows as she saw we were... More

We've stayed at the Ideal before and have always found it good value. Friendly family run business. Good quality food day & night. A well stocked bar. Don't get seduced by these dreadful 'all inclusive hotels' where the food is awful and the drinks aren't worth drinking. Explore. While in Kokkini Hani try 'The Whiskey Bar' which is 5 minutes...

We should have submitted a review before now but better late than never. My wife Julie and I stayed in a first-floor apartment towards the back of the hotel at a time when the weather was a little bit iffy. The no-frills rooms were fine, no problems at all, spacious and clean. When we go on holiday we don't expect... More

Having just returned from the Ideal Hotel Apartments I feel compelled to write a real review, We researched these apartments from Trip Advisor having first of all booked for Elounda area. We decided to change to Ideal due to better reviews for the Ideal Apartments but only due to the area! Having arrived at Heraklion Airport we were escorted onto... More

Stayed in these apartments for 2 weeks in mid July. They are clean and the sheets, towels were changed every 2 days. We had a lovely balcony with a view over the gardens which are very pretty and well maintained. The owner and staff were very friendly and welcoming on our arrival. However, as we are a bit adventurous and... More
