“Had a fantastic honeymoon ❤”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

I have 2 days left at this peace of heaven .... What a beautiful place to stay .... We arrived on 14th August for our honeymoon our apartment was decorated with rose petals,candles, sugar almonds and a bottle of champagne ... Yiannis and Eleni are wonderful and yes her lemon cake is to die for ..... Food is excellent the Greek night was amazin with BBQ and dancing ..... Rooms are really well equipped and cleaned to perfection .... There are 12 apartments we have room 3 which has amazin views Everyone is so friendly to each other ..... Yiannis runs a tab system which is great .... Help yourself to beers etc and write it in the book do trusting ... You can always get a sun bed around the pool ... It's so chilled out and relaxed here .... Aircon is available at 8 euros for 24 hrs .... The town is fabulous about a 20 min walk but taxi is only 6 euro ... Aylmiros beach is beautiful only 7 euro for 2 beds and umbrella .. Water sports and fab bouncy inflatable in the sea with slide.... I will be sad to leave but I am definitely coming back next year with my 11 year old daughter she will love it ..... THANKYOU Yiannis and Eleni you are amazin and your little peace of heaven is beautiful x

We stayed here for 2 weeks from 19th July -3rd Aug.The apartments were lovely and clean with plenty utensils anything you can get in your own home it is by far the best equipped apartments i have ever stayed in.The couple Yiannis and Eleni are second to none they were brilliant could not help you enough. Eleni made the nicest lemon cake my husband and i have ever tasted.The bbq night is a must lots and lots of food and plenty dancing good fun all round. If you are looking for a beach holiday this is not for you, there is a beach but the best beach was in Elounda. You can go by bus, taxi, boat,or hire a car.The apartments are up a hill but its not that bad. You can get a taxi for 6euros. The town has a lovely lake, the bars are spread out and all serve food. We never had a bad meal but we did always have Greek food as we love it.

Room Tip: We were in room 1 it is a studio,it is on the ground floor though, do not go there if you have a tee...

We have travelled extensively but it is rare to stay in a hotel or apartments which offer the level of hospitality provided by Yiannis and Eleni at Golden Apartments. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble; the standard of service, the cleanliness of the rooms (particularly the regularity with which they were cleaned), the helpful advice from Yiannis on what to see and do in the local area were all plus points.

Following a small accident at Watercity (41 is possibly too old to be riding the kamikaze water slide!), Eleni drove us to the hospital, translated, waited for me to be discharged and drove us home, this was over and above what I would expect from any hotel owner and it was very much appreciated.

The centre of town is a short walk away (approximately 20 minutes), taxis cost 6 euros and Yiannis is more than happy to order a taxi for you. There are many different places to eat (Avli was a particular favourite) and Alexandros roof top bar was great for cocktails and 80's music!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Golden Apartments to family and friends and we would like to return one day.

Thank you Yiannis and Eleni :-)

From the surprise of being dropped off at the roadside, and the shock of walking up the bank, what you encounter from there is either one week or two weeks of the best holiday of your life as long as you fall in line with the little man, Yannis' way. His hospitality, conversation and helpfulness are second to non. I would recommend this to anybody as a base to explore Agios and have no hesitation in recommending this as a holiday destination.
P.s. Request all taxi's from the town to drop off at the reception - €6 only!

We have enjoyed our stay at Golden Apartments so much that we have returned 8 times!

Myself and my daughter had a wonderful two weeks at these apartments. Yiannis and Eleni are helpful and generous hosts. The views of the town are beautiful from the apartments and they are kept spotlessly clean. They helped us to visit a taverna they knew towards the mountains and we had a lovely meal of meze sitting under a tree full of pink blossom surrounded by locals.
It is only 2 euros for a lovely glass of wine at the apartments and it was lovely sitting chatting with others at night. Their moussaka and Greek salad are lovely and we had them for both lunch and tea. We also had lovely meals at Alvi and meze at the restaurant opposite the museum. We caught the boat to Spinalonga from the harbor and the cost only 15 euros. We also did a half day trip on the train up the mountains which was lovely. We splashed out one day and went off roads in landrovers up the mountains and had a great day. We used to walk into town and catch a taxi back. The good value price of the holiday meant that the taxis were not a hardship!
The Golden Apartments deserve their good reviews.

Just back from our stay at Golden Apartments and on such a downer. The moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and Yianni and Eleni are fantastic hosts, they couldn't do enough for you but weren't in your face. The food available was lovely and very reasonably priced, especially the moussaka. The cleaner comes every other day and is very thorough. The pool is lovely and kept clean, although the shallow end is quite small and there are plently of loungers. If you require a taxi,Yianni will organise it for you. It costs €6 to get into town. There are plenty of places to eat in the town or ask Yianni for a recommendation. Loved this place and the views are outstanding.

Me and my boyfriend had the best stay here, i couldn't fault it at all. john and his wife are wonderful people, who always want to make you have a pleasant stay and make sure you are happy. whenever you are Hungary they will make you dinner, there food is really nice and always well presented.
eating in town is a really nice thing to do,now and again, and also the pubs, we made a few friends in the most busy pub, which was nice.
john and his wife, gave us a few lifts into town which was really nice of them.
The bbq they hosted was amazing, they always made sure your plate was full :)
and also made me dance which was fun!!!

to be honest, i got upset when i had to leave, not just the apartments but the people and the beautiful island of Crete, and not forgeting the amazing housekeeper, who always does a tromendous job :)
its such a lovely peaceful atmosphere at the GOLDEN APARTMENTS
and i cant wait for my next stay there :D xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
