Costas the apartments manager was there to greet us when we arrived, which was actually an hour or so earlier than we had indicated. This wasn't a problem though and we were treated to raki and cookies while we waited for our room.
The room itself was very spacious and the kitchenette was equipped with everything we needed. The wifi signal was strong and we had a few Skype calls without any issues. The room's safe was big enough for our netbook as well.
The apartments are located in a great location if you wish the visit Crete's west coast beaches - you will need a car though (I'm sure you knew that anyway). Balos beach is actually within walking distance (about 7k or 8k I believe - we had no problems walking there)
The apartments actually have a great vibe; we visited in April and though the weather was unpredictable, the complex was still welcoming.
