“Friendly service in a quiet area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Zorbas apartments are situated in quiet area of Gournes, near Heraklion. I stayed there in 1 of the spacious around Christmas, when the family makes great dinners and nice parties.
Clean nice apartment in a sort of park with many trees and flowers. Good breakfast and dinners on request

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

We love this place. The apartments are simple but comfortable with an unbelievably large balcony. The beach is not immediately outside the apartments but you are at the seefront in 2 or 3 minutes. Whilst the seafront has a collection of tavernas, shops, bars and coffee shops it is not over commercialised and remains a pleasant and safe place to be. Zorbas Beach staff are friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeably. I am truly amazed at where they get all their energy and enthusiam from. The food represents remarkably good value without compromising on quality. There is never a dull moment as there is always something organised if you want it, if not just laze by the pool. To see the island we went on a walking tour and tried the thrilling jeep safari. they really are astounding - the scenery is breathtaking. You can even learn Greek cuisine with their cookery course in the mountains. The atmosphere in the place is wonderful, it was so easy to make new friends. Very recommendable
