“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Arrived in Sougia on a Saturday afternoon with no accommodation booked. The idomeneas apartments are at the beginning of the village. They looked good as we passed but we decided to have a look around. We soon returned and were lucky that they had room free. The rate was good and the room excellent. It was large, clean and bright, far superior to many of the rooms we rented in Crete (and paid a lot more for). We stayed for 3 nights and were disappointed when we had to move because they were fully booked after that. The owner was very friendly and the home made wine, cake and honey left in the room were delicious. Although it is on the edge of the village it is only a few minutes walk to the centre and the beach. Sougia is a very small village but well worth a visit.

We had booked a studio on the sea front for 4 days but left after a day as it was not as advertised on the internet. Having stayed at Idomeneas Apartments & Studios 4 years ago, we enquired on the off chance of a room being available and were delighted to be offered an excellent apartment. It was spotlessly clean and had good views to the Libyan Sea. The owner, as she was 4 years ago was very kind and helpful.
Sougia was as wonderfully chilled out as before with one of our favourite beaches. Recommend trying one of the two tavernas towards the east end of the beach, always the busier end of the beach.

Sougia is a great little town if you are looking to get away and relax. We enjoyed this town and especially the ease of using the bus to the Samaria gorge hike start, and then the ferry back to Sougia.

idomeneas leaves some to be desired. the prices are a bargain, but you get what you pay for. The balcony was decent, and you can see the sea, though the immediate view is of an abandoned lot.

The apartment is very large with a large sitting room and then a bedroom. The bed is comfortable and the place is kept nice and clean. Our main issue with the place is the shower. It's a typical tiny Euro-shower with just enough room to stand inside. however, there is no shower curtain, so the entire bathroom gets wet. a squeegee on a stick is provided to mop up the water, but it seems like such a pain to mop up after each shower. There was no hot water for our stay...only tepid and cold water. And the shower nozzle is attached to the wall around knee to waist level rather than above your head. the water pressure is extremely low. we wouldn't stay here again mostly b/c we'd be looking for a better shower. maybe if there was hot water our story would be different.

Rooms very spacious, clean and well preserved. Kitchen, cafetiere and all basic utensils there.aircon worked. Balcony with a somewhat distant view to the sea and two comfortable chairs for those lazy moments. Owner very polite and kind, offered us cake and cookies on more than one occasion. Sea is three mins walk, beach is nice, water is fantastic, prices fair.
