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...

For some reason my previous review was taken down due to me 'not being a genuine traveller' but I can assure you I stayed here: We arrived at Rena Apartments about midnight on Sunday (11th August). We were very tired after a full days travel. Upon arrival we were shunned to the bar to 'grab a drink' we thought nothing... More

After a shaky start we overall enjoyed our time in Crete, when we arrived as a family of 5 we were told there was no room for us and we were split up. Staff were apologetic and Helen who worked in the kitchen helped sort accommodation for us and ensured we would be picked up the next day. We saw... More

be prepared to search for Greece, haven't been to Greece for 9 years, it seems to have changed a bit. Helen is a brilliant cook and has a brilliant personality, gives the place a big boost in the evening. All just ok, but a car too get out of the area helpful Thanks too all at the apartment

In two days they have stolen from our apartment and the other boys and did nothing. Are not at all organized. They take reservations even without rooms. Do not monitor anything. Listen to the advice from those who have ruined a holiday ..... Crete is beautiful but do not go here looking anywhere but here.

We had a great, last minute, stay at Rena apartments. All of the guests seemed to be welcomed as almost into the owners home, without it being too obtrusive and OTT. Ideal for families with children aged 8 to 14. Close to the bus and taxi stop for getting around and walking distance of the beach.

We read the reviews for this place before we booked and were happy with the overall comments so we went ahead and arranged a 1 week stay. All I can say is that our experience does not match the reviews. Bedding and towels changed once in a week, broken toilet, shower grate full of hair and soap, shower tiles covered... More

Just got back from a weeks holiday at RENa apartments and had a great time. After a very bad start thanks to our tour operator we arrived at 1am a day later than planned due to cancelled flight, our agency had not waited to get confirmation from the apartments after emailing them about our late arrival and they thought we...
