This is a little gem of a place. The apartments are laid out, like a small village with a small olive grove between them and the pool. We returned here after a gap of twelve years, and were very impressed with the continual upgrading of the accomodation and its' surroundings that has been undertaken from when we were last here. Very clean, well decorated, spacious and functional apartment with a good bathroom, kitchen and terrace. The linen was changed twice during the week we were there, and it is this attention to detail, by the management, that makes this place an excellent place to stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful, a nice pool area with plenty of sunbeds, and a pleasant bar that serves snacks throughout the day makes this an attractive area for sunbathing.Its' location is in a quiet area a two hundred metres or so back from the main beach, where sunbeds can be hired. There are a number of excellent tavernas on the route to the beach, where good food can be obtained. Try Mylos or Medusa, and you will not be disappointed. Due to its' proximity to Heraklion there is some aircraft noise, but I did not find this intrusive and it certainly did not spoil our holiday as we had a really relaxing time there.
