Have always enjoyed staying at small Greek hotels. There's something about them being more personal with more of a local flavour than the bigger hotels can offer. It was our first visit to Crete and we like to self cater so looked for a smallish hotel with two bedrooms for ourselves and our 19 year old daughter. Came across Aphea...

We had a fantastic time in Aphea Village! The staff were very friendly and caring (our little ones are 4 and 1). Although located up a hill side (shops down the road), the walk up is well worth it with a spectacular view and outstanding meals (breakfast and dinner available). The hotel has free wifi however beware that internet in...

Short: The hotel has very good location, rooms are nice, staff very helpful and friendly. We had ***** view and service. The atmosphere is family-ish, owner and his relatives run whole place and sit among guests during day and in the evening. Food is good, you can try local specialities. Only breakfasts could have bigger variety Long: We arrived after...

The apartment was on a hillside. The only draw back was the walk back to it. You either walk up a steep hill or a longer incline, then there were the steps. We stayed near the top with a lovelly view but it took a minimum of 92 steps. The apartment was very roomy but the A/C was only in...

Location and general impression: Sits on a hillside above the main village, about 5 mins from the main supermarket and buses and 15 mins from the beach and harbour. Outstanding view of coastline towards Hania from many apartments. Quite a lot of steps from street level to the upper apartments. Lovely terrace and pool with said views. No gardens but...

A very nice hotel with almost every room facing the sea directly. I loved that the kitchen and living room were separated from the dorm, you don't see that often in a hotel. Every room has AC, decent bathrooms and the rooms are cleaned daily (garbage, floor washed, etc) Loved that there is plenty of vegetation on the alleys to...

This is a nice place. It has a lot of apartments facing the sea directly. All have A/C included. The upper terrace gives you the perfect sunrise view. Our room was cleaned daily (garbage taken out, etc.), and the towels were changed once in our 7 days stay. The location is good, but you'll need a car to visit the...

We spent quite a lot of time looking at hotels and apartments online before choosing Aphea Village. We were travelling as a couple, looking for somewhere fairly quiet to use as a base to explore west Crete with some convenient amenities nearby (shops etc) as we were going for the self catering option. Aphea Village is a small complex of...

“I have no tip for a perfect room but watch out for the happy hour from 5pm to 6pm when every drink at the pool bar is at half the price. Also, the bartender is one of the few staff members that speaks good English.”
