We spent a wonderful 15 nights at the Divina apartments and were two of the few guests who hadn't been stayed there many times before, but were still greeted as if we were regulars.
Yes the accomodation is basic, but it is traditional Greek. If you want Boutique stay in Heraklion. Yes, the shower is tiny, but how much room do you need to wash? I'm a fuller figured lady and I managed fine. The water pressure in our room (106) was great.
The apartments are set back from the road - about 100 metres, meaning there is no road noise. Although the path is not tarmac it is far from a dirt track!!
The apartments are spotlessly clean and the sheets and towels are changed every other day - even the day before we were leaving.
The Divina is ideally situated on the edge of Gouves, so is nice and quite but only 5 minutes walk from the centre of the village, with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars and only across the road from the sea and a few yards from a sandy beach.
The Divina Taverna is reasonably priced and the servings are large. The service is great, especially by Yiannis and there is a good, family atmosphere. The food is cooked from scratch , so there may be a wait for your meal, but it's worth waiting for. There is plenty of choice on the menu, but Alex is more than willing to vary his menu to suit individuals.
Many Greeks use the Taverna, which to me means it is a good, traditional restaurant!!
If you are looking for a peaceful, friendly holiday, the Divina is the place for you!!
