“THE place for your holiday!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Our holiday at Amarilis Apartments was wonderful!!
The owners, Sophia and Marc, did their very best to make us feel welcome and at home.
The apartments are spacious, light and clean.
Sophia and Marc prepare delicious food and their bbq-evening is something to remember.
Their swimmingpool and lawn is very nice to enjoy the sun.
Also for kids it's a great place to enjoy their holiday.
In short, I would recommand this apartment to everybody.

Stayed June 2013, traveled with family

The apartments have got everything you need and are well kept,clean and cool.Beautiful gardens-just like an English tea garden.If you don't want to cook,the bar/cafe/restaurant serves a lovely breakfast and snacks throughout the day and meals in the evening.We were fortunate to be there on a BBQ evening and it was amazing.The multilingual staff are wonderful and bent over backwards to make our stay a great stay.The sea is 2 or 3 minutes away.The famous harbour / village of Sisi is within 10 minutes as are car hire,bike hire,supermarkets etc.I found plenty to explore within 5 miles.

Such a great find. This small family run holiday apartment business is a real oasis of calm in the very heart of the beautiful harbour village of Sissi. Our apartment was spotlessly clean , cool and shaded and looked out across a lawned area towards the pool and the Mediterranean Sea beyond. Sitting on our balcony at the end of each hot day, cooling off and relaxing with a glass or two of wine was a favourite part of each day. Sofia, the owners daughter and Mark are a really friendly couple do a wonderful job of chatting to all their guests, cooking superb Cretan food and running the small friendly bar too. Our whole experience was relaxing and totally enjoyable. We love Sissi and its people and would not hesitate in recommending Amarilis Apartments to anyone...so long as they leave enough room for us!!! Thanks Sofia and Mark for a wonderful holiday! :0)

If you want home from home experience, you cannot beat Amarilis Apartments for a relaxing holiday in beautiful village of Sissi, Crete. Fabulous, lovingly decorated self catering apartments with kitchenette, to make you morning breakfast and enjoy it from the terrace, overlooking the swimming pool and lovely garden with flowers (even Frangipani and Jasmine). Some has sea view. They are good value for money for families and couples alike. The owners will treat you like long lost friend, make sure your stay is comfortable and that you enjoy yourself. Tasty home cooked food at the bar/restaurant is very reasonably priced. If you want to go for a wonder round the village, Sissi harbor is a fantastic place to enjoy the sunset. The owners speak fluent English and will assist you with any tours/excursions you want to take (if you get the urge to venture out). Highly recommend it. If you are not tied to school holidays, Crete generally is a pleasant time to visit during May/June. Especially in this miserable weather we are having in the UK. Highly recommend Amarilis Apartments in Sissi. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: They all have their own character, but the old wing has apartments with lovely, authentic stone floo...

Not only is Sissi the perfect place to stay when visiting Crete but the Amarilis Apartments are easily the best place to stay. The owners Sofia and Mark welcome you with smiles and friendship and they are fabulous hosts. You will go home feeling you have made new friends not just had a holiday. The setting is perfect with a lovely pool and beautiful gardens to relax in. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with a very homely feel. The food is all fresh and home cooked and delicious. These apartments are very highly recommended.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Amarilis. The apartments were spotless and spacious. The pool and surrounding area are clean and very pretty with plenty of space for sunbathing! The home cooked food at the bar was delicious and Sofia and Marc are brilliant, always there to help to make your holiday a great one. I'd definitely recommend these apartments and will be returning next year!
