We arrived about 3am, and found a map/Sketch on the bar Shutter, showing where our room was located, I thought this was quiet amusing but who wants to be awake at 3am, when you have to be up at 6am, waiting for two guests. I met Rena early on the morning, couldn't sleep (over tired) she was cleaning the pool... More

Got off to a bit of a shaky start through my arrival time of 04.00am and all was locked up, but after banging around a few minutes, Rena's husband showed me to my room. The rooms are basic, but suited me fine, a small fridge and cooker were available and came in very handy. I cannot compliment the staff enough... More

We stayed here for a week in June, was a good hotel but couple of bad points, towels were torn and rooms were roasting. Hotel kept clean but a bit far from the beach and restaurants. We spent most nights in rainbow bar with lovely Helen, George and Megan.

Stayed here for 4 days, apartments are very clean and basic, has everything you need. There is a super market attached to the accomodation with everything there that you could ever need and very reasonably priced. They cater for English very well with all English brands to buy such as cereals and snacks. It is around a 10 minute walk... More

We stayed here for the last week in June, first in July & had the place more or less to ourselves, yet the place was constantly busy with visitors from surrounding hotels who chose to pay to come to Rena's rather than eat for free in their all-inclusive hellholes. As others have said, Rena, Deena & co welcome you into... More

We stayed at Club Lyda for our honeymoon situated opposite Rena Apartments but found the service and food much better here. We met Helen the chef after a couple of days in Crete and she saved our honeymoon. Helen welcomed us into the bar where she serves amazing food and is happy to have a chat while she cooks. I... More

Gouves is a lovely village and the overall stay was brilliant, but there were a few negatives about the holiday. Firstly, when we arrived we were told there was no room for us by Helen and Rena and if there is no "reservation" there's no "stay" even though we booked through Low Cost Holidays, but Helen gave us complimentary drinks...
