The hotel is in an excellent position near the sea and in a quiet place. Our bedroom was big, clean and comfortable; the private bathroom a little bit small and old. The staff was friendly, helpful and really nice and the Greek food we had at the taverna of the hotel was tasty and delicious. We enjoyed our staying at... More

The owner is a great person. The place is clean, spacious, cheap, and in a great location (right on a beautiful beach). The resturaunt has a great menu and the food is great. If I ever go back, I will def. stay there another time.

This property is ok if you have a car to get around and don't plan to use the beach out front. We had room 306 and it is one of only 2 renovated rooms in the whole place. If you must stay at this hotel, request that room. Be aware that even a double bed is two single beds pushed... More

We are very proud about our comments and our rank between the hotels in ammoudara. We are training to make the holidays of our good guests unforgettable. That is why we have a lot of beautiful comments. We don't need guests like you. Greece don't need tourist like you. Everything you write about our hotel is wrong. Everything you write... More

Thanks to Christos, Mario, Vasilis and the very kind cook. We really enjoyed our stay in Aptera Beach Hotel. The view from our room was awesome ( room 308 ) From the hotel, it was very easy to travel around Crete. Best wishes from Belgium

We stayed four nights here at the end of two weeks in Greece and loved it. Our room was large and had everything that we required. The balcony overlooked the beach and the bay, a lovely view. The restaurant downstairs served excellent food and the staff, Mario and Vasili, were friendly and attentive. The owner, Christos, was helpful and engaging.... More

We wanted a small, chilled, cosy guesthouse on the beach and Aptera was unbeatable. The very relaxed and friendly atmosphere provided by Christos and the rest of the staff/family matched perfectly with the location, ideal for swimming, snorkelling and water sports, and detached from the bigger resorts. A huge plus was the heartily home-made food what was available at the... More

We found the aptera beach online for a quick birthday break. We arrived at 1:30am and Christos was waiting to greet us. We had room 308 and had the extended balcony with a lovely view of the beach. Everything was perfect. Will be back again very soon. Jay n Jen

It's a small, nice and friendly hotel with an excellent Taverna on the beach. This calm hotel has simple clean rooms with a balcony having a sea view. You will have a nice breakfast on the sea shore terasse by the private beach of the hotel. The owner will serve tomatos and friuts from his own garden. If you like... More

Located on the outskirts of the main drag, which is a short stroll away, however the hotel is right on the beach with all rooms having a balcony that overlooks the beach. Rooms are a little dated but comfortable enough and the location is a real bonus if you want to be right on the beach. Compared to some of... More

This review is about the Aptera Beach Hotel. The Creta Beach Hotel is farther around the bay. There is no hotel in Amoudara called the Creta Aptera Beach Hotel so don't be confused! The Aptera Beach has 30 good-sized rooms, all with balconies, with the majority having a sea view. You won't find a help-yourself counter for food here; everything... More
