“Simply fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

The apartment is exellent! Realy nice and well kept. The hostess is a very nice lady. You could ask for every thing. If it was raining she offered an umbrella. She told you where you can go and how to do it. When we arrived, there was fruit and drinks in the apartment. I even got a realy hughe rose!! We would go back in an heartbead!! Big thanks to her for a realy nice vacation!

We have traveled through Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Turkey and Greece and this has been our favorite apartment!

Internet: Yes
Room to spread out: Definitely
Kitchen that you can actually cook in: Even an oven!
Comfortable beds: Thank you!!

We work online so internet is a big deal for us, although we had some connection problems here and there, it was mostly due to weather.

We stayed in #8 and it was fabulous! The owners were truly wonderful! We were greeted early in the morning with delicious fresh baked goods and coffee. Our room had a lovely view of the trees and pool (so pretty). They also had fresh roses, fruit, and Raki for us! Nothing could be a bother as we bothered a lot! We had to stay an additional night, we needed extra pillows, we asked for beach towels, suffice to say we asked for more than they offered and they were so nice and accomodating.

The only con: I don't have the name of "Mom", but she treated us as such. Waking up early to say goodbye, showing concern of the dilapidated rental car we received and being ever so generous throughout.

Location: You are very close to many markets, even a bowling alley (fun center) up the road. We drove into old town Chania, and it took us maybe 5-10 minutes, although a bus is apparently easy and runs until midnight.

I highly recommend Sorta, you will be relaxed and happy! Off the beaten path, but still in easy reach of all the fun!

Room Tip: We loved #8! View of the trees and pool, with a large deck.

On arrival we were offered coffee and cakes, which was lovely (and unexpected) after a long travel time. Our baby son wasnt on the paper work from our travel agent but there were no issues to get a cot with bedding and a high chair, which was sorted out immediately. We are a family of four who enjoyed the complimenatry fruit, raki and soft drinks in the apartment. We found the appartments very central to the beaches, shops and restraurants and were happy without a car. The apartments were very clean and serviced every day. We required a doctor for our son and an english speaking doctor was organised by the owner very quickly and efficiently. Our son also had a 1st Birthday in Crete and was given a birthday cake by the owner, this was lovely and very unexpected. We found the owners very thoughtful and a pleasure to spend time with,. We would return for another stay. Very well equipped kitchens - we managed to be very self surffcient and enjoyed our stay immensly.

Room Tip: Appartment 2 is ground floor, great for families, across from the gaden/swings.

Beautiful small resort, ideal for families. 5 minutes walk to the beach, and a short bus ride to the center of beautiful Chania. Tidy and clean rooms. And there is even a small private exhibition of old classic motor cycles!

Myself, my husband and my son stayed here at the end of of October and it was great. The owner couldn't do enough for us, the place was spotlessly clean and set in a beatiful garden with a swimming pool. It was easily accessable to some beautiful beaches perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Although we were self catering and near to large supermarkets we ate out at nearby tavernas and little beach bars. With easy access to Chania it was a great find and I definitely aim to return there again.

We chose this place specifically because it's quiet, right near a beach and didn't want to drive around or party the whole time, we were taking a break from London! Agii Apostoli is a quiet little place with only a tiny handful of tavernas and no bars within walking distance except for a little beach bar that was actually quite nice and full of locals which is always good to see. We got exactly what we wanted by booking this place. We got to the apartments quite late but the owner was waiting for us and offered us coffee on arrival. She showed us the apartment and then left us to it but was always completely approachable with any request. She had provided coffee, sugar, water, fruit and fresh flowers. We were very impressed with the apartment (we had a mezzanine) as it was so spacious, clean, well kitted out and so close to everything in Agii Apostoli. I'm torn between wanting to keep this place a secret and recommending it really highly! I would disagree with a review below regarding the local tavernas. We personally had a better experience at Pergola than at Andreas. Both gave a warm welcome and sold pretty much exactly the same menu but I got the impression that Andreas had run out of quite a lot of stuff being near the end of the season. Pergola couldn't have wanted to please us more and were more engaging with us generally. Avoid this area if you want buzz but for a relaxing holiday with everything within a 5 minute walk this place is perfect. Chania old town is easily accessible by bus, the bus stop is a couple of minutes walk away and it takes around 15 minutes to get to the old town which is very picturesque but more touristy than I had hoped for. Was nice for a change though and I'm pretty sure much nicer than Platanias! A thumbs up from me.

My parents (a mature couple) stayed at Sorta apartments for 11 night between September 14 and September 25 2013.
The welcome was very warm, the hostess greeted us with coffee and home-made cheesecake. In the room we had a big fruit basket and water, coffee and sugar. Quick check-in and explanation of all facilities and appliances in our room. We had a mezzanine (two-level) room (number 8). The room has a very big terrace, independent from neighbors. Good sound-proofing. In addition to air conditioning (at three spots) there was a practical ceiling ventilator. Kitchen is good, even with sponges and soap, but there are yet not enough pots and similar stuff. There are two toilets in the room. Beds somewhat short and narrow, with one sheet for two - not very comfortable. Mattresses quite comfortable though. The hostess was responsive to any inquiry. On a birthday we got a surprise cake with congratulations - very tasty!
The location is very good: several good beaches nearby, as well as supermarkets (3'4 minutes away) and a bus stop (2 minutes). Buses run every 10-17 minutes, in 15 minutes you are in the historic center of Chania (last stop). The last bus is at midnight. One beach we found particularly good: small, closed, with warm water. Close by there is a pine park, with jogging lanes and a children playground. All the pictures correspond to the reality.
Drawbacks: bad soundproofing of the bathroom in the room.
