“Highest quality and incredible hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Excellent choice for people from abroad but also for Greeks. Surrounded by beautiful trees and plants, isolated from noises, and the incredible hospitality make you feel like home.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

This small family owned and operated apartment hotel, truly satisfies even the most spoiled family. The manager who is an architect, does the utmost to make you feel at home. Center of the establishment is the pool, where the bar and the open dining area allow you to socialize and enjoy the mild Cretan climate. A place that i can only recommend, and I am sure to visit next time I am in Crete.

We moved to Crete from the United States, and a friend found this place for us to stay while we looked for a house. It is perfectly located - close to Heraklion & the airport, with easy access to the main road & entire island. We arrived in June 2011, three months after the management changed from wonderful Stella to her wonderful niece, Anna. It seems the transition was seamless. Excellent management, good food, true Crete hospitality. Rooms are spotless, pool is sparkling, short walk to sandy beach & only a couple minutes drive from the island's main highway. Everyone went out of their way to help us, and everyone remains our friends to this day. You do need a car in order to tour around the island independently, but you can come without a car & the staff will arrange a rental only for the days you need it. While we were there, the management arranged to have professional guides arrive for guests who wanted guided tours to places like Knossos. The hotel is perfect for long-term stays (we were there for three weeks), and the apartments have cooking facilities & balconies. Now when we go into the city for a night out, we stay there to avoid the drive home in the dark. Reasonably priced. Not a glitzy beach resort, but a place with true Cretan hospitality. Free wifi in all the rooms is a big bonus & complimentary computers in Reception..

Pros:
- Staff is friendly.
- The pool is clean.
- The restaurant's food is good.
- Very quiet.

Cons:
- Walk to the beach is not short, you need to walk on the side of the road without a pedestrian walk.
- Bus schedule is bad, get a taxi if you want to be in time (around 30 euro).
- Our sheets have not been changed for the whole stay. We had to ask for a soap.
- No any stores or other restaurants nearby (if you do not have a car) - you can not walk to the city if it's dark as there are no street lights.

Friends and I drove here from eastern Crete and spent just one night at Your Memories Hotel before catching a ferry to Santorini the next morning. We wanted a layover near Heraklion to facilitate visits to the Palace at Knossos and the Heraklion Archeological Museum.

For our purposes, this place was absolutely great! Stella provided us with four excellent rooms at reasonable prices. The rooms were spotless, well maintained, and attractive. I was pleasantly surprised by the high standard of quality. Due to the brevity of our stay, we did not spend time at the beach or avail ourselves of the property's amenities other than breakfast, which Stella graciously arranged to serve early due to our early departure time.

If you don't know the area, let me clue you in. My impression of Heraklion is not terribly favorable. It strikes me as just a busy and crowded city. Driving in the downtown area can be a nightmare, and if any part of Heraklion is attractive, I haven't seen it.

Both the ferry port and the airport are located on the northeastern side of the city, so my preference is to stay on the northern shore east of Heraklion...close enough for a short drive to Heraklion, but far enough away to avoid airport noise. This hotel has easy access to the highway, making it only a 10 or 15-minute drive to the city. It was a great refuge from Heraklion and perfect for our needs. I would like to have stayed longer.

One our fondest 'memories' of crete will certainly be the warm hospitality of Stella, Kostas, Irene and co. at the 'Your Memories Hotel' near Heraklion in Crete. Centrally located with good routes to the rest of the island, the hotel was clean and quiet, set within lovely planted surroundings. We received good advice on sites to see, help with renting a car and enjoyed a great home cooked meal on our last night. We highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the island.

we have been going to Memories now for the last 5 years, so this must say something to you.. Stella the Manager and all her staff are wonderful, all her apartments are cleaned and tidied every day, so much they gleam.... the pool is cleaned out every evening. the grounds are all tidy. And her cooking is wonderful. you must try it, Gouves is a warm friendly place, the locals all make you feel so welcome. the beach is only a 10min walk from stella's ... we would walk the beach way in an evening to go into town, then walk back through the town. so you would not get boared. My son and his girlfriend who are 19years of age.... really enjoyed the holiday. loved staying with Stella. she gets on with all ages. we spent many a evening aroung her bar, after being in town having our last drink or two or three. and you must try Stella'd home made Raki its brilliant.

Don't worry if you have children as am sure they would enjoy staying with Stella, and they would love the beach. the other thing i would like to mention is that its not a noisey place. its quiet....if you want a noisey holiday then this is not for you. Memories is a holiday to help you feel good after working hard all year
