I love the Greek islands for the friendly welcome you get , Mikes epitomises this. Spent two weeks in July here as a friends and families group of eight loved every minute very clean just the right size and staff that cannot do enough to make your stay great. Use the public transport to get out and about Chania is a must as is a boat trip! Big thank you to Manos, Sophia, family and staff for a great holiday we will be back .
We booked this as a last minute family get away myself husband and 2 and a half year old son. Originally scrolled passed it as on TUI it’s only rated as a 2 star but thought I’d check out the trip advisor reviews and I’m soooo happy we did. We’ve had a 2 week holiday returning yesterday and WOW, this place is simply amazing. It’s small and family run and the minute you arrive you’re made to feel like your also part of the family. When the coach arrived Maria was outside by the coach welcoming us all, Manos checked us in and helped us to our room, I’d emailed when booking and requested a travel cot even though my child was over the ‘infant’ age and there was one set up and waiting in the room. The rooms are huge, very clean and modern, our balcony was very spacious and the view was perfect - the shower is just something else. The pool is lovely and warm and is just a few steps away from the beach, the pool bar is lovely serving drinks and snacks, the salads are huge, the pizza are fab and the cocktails are amazing. The staff Manos, Maria, Armand and Nikos cannot do enough for you - the only down side to the pool bar is no chips but that is literally the only thing I could pick fault with if I was forced to think of something and that’s only because we have a very fussy child who decided he only likes chips on holiday. Don’t forget to grab a vitamin shot from Manos at the end of the night will definitely help you sleep! The restaurant, Sofia & the wonderful team up there serve up some fabulous homemade Greek specials daily along with the rest of the menu - everything we had was lovely apart from the raki but whilst in Crete … the downside to the restaurant is that it’s up a steep hill but if your like us this will be your only exercise on the holiday because it’s a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. By the arches at the entrance at the end of the night you get the perfect view of the sun setting - Nothing is too much trouble for Manos, Sofia and the team, it was a first time visit for us but most people we met were returning and if they were first timers like us they were already looking to book again like us who rebooked whilst we were there an cannot wait to return. Thank you so much for a wonderful time and we’ll see you again next year.…
What can we say that has not already been said, the family and staff here are simply wonderful, and we thank them for the unreserved hospitality each time we visit, the down side is it’s always full so getting a room can be a challenge.
We had the best holiday at Mike aparthotel. There is nothing that we could fault. The staff were wonderful, the whole place was immaculately clean, the location was beautiful, the food in the hotel was definitely the best in the area also. We would 100% return. Best holiday ever. Thank you Mike hotel from the chamneys
Recently returned from our second stay this year at Mikes’s. We were there in May also. What can we say that hasn’t been said before ? Lovely apartments with genuinely warm and friendly staff. Manos will keep you healthy with his daily “vitamins” - it’s “protocol” ! Sophia, his sister, will welcome you to their excellent family-run restaurant at Mike’s hotel. We would also like to commend the Greek TUI Rep STRATOS. We had a problem involving a rude coach driver which he dealt with most efficiently. He is the most outstanding Rep we have encountered on our travels.
Stayed 1 week 28th June to 5th July. 4th visit here, as always was wonderful and 1st time as a couple. We were looked after beautifully by Manos, Sofia, Maria & Nicos at both the restaurant and the pool bar. We stayed in the apartment with the private pool - asked Manos if we could have a sun shade - within minutes back he came sun shade in hand (as previously stated nothing is ever too much trouble) Our maid Maria who has looked after us each time we've visited works so hard, making beautiful towel creatures for us and our children always smiling and waving as she passes. Rebooked for August next year can't wait.
For a 3 star Hotel I would not expect anything more. You get what you pay for which is fantastic and has everything we needed. Areas of improvement are difficult to find however I would say maybe extend the pool bar menu but apart from that not much else. The breakfast options are good with a wide amount to choose from. We went just before schools break up and left days before they did. It did get busy with children but the end so If you want a quiet hotels term times is the time to book.
Cannot fault Mike's, we loved it. Just returned from a 7 night stay 05/07/22 to 12/07/2022. We stayed in room 202 which had a lovely sea view this we werent expecting so a nice added bonus. Staff so welcoming, really sweet and made the time to talk to you. We did eat at a couple of restaurants along the beach but not as good as Mike's restaurant, the specials were fantastic. Many thanks to the amazing chef! I could of eaten there olive paste by the bucket and their complimentary raki... wow! The pool side food was delicious too with the added benefit of vitamins 😁, loved the cocktails with everything reasonably priced. We have to give a special shout out to our maid who kept our room immaculately clean throughout our stay, thank you!! The tui rep Stratos so helpful and informative have to say the best rep we've come across on our travels. The sea a short walking distance although it can be rough at times. We did visit Elafonisi beach (pink sand beach) but were very disappointed 😞 it was jammed packed with people and so didn't get to take any pictures of the pink sand although the water was lovely and clear, great for kids as also very shallow. Myself and my husband have always said that we would not return to the same hotel twice as the world is full of many places and adventures but! we will definitely be returning to Mike's as we were made so so welcome everyone works so hard here they totally deserve a five star rating! Thank you so much to you all for a wonderful holiday 😘…
Just returned from a week at this wonderful place and have already booked to go back next year. Immaculately clean everywhere, spacious rooms and very friendly staff. The food in the restaurant is home cooked and out of this world, especially the pepper sauce!! Not a fault to be found anywhere, Thankyou for an amazing holiday!
Stayed for a week at the end of May/beginning of June. 3 adults and 2 children. Apartments we’re spotlessly clean (the cleaners really go above and beyond) and very spacious, fabulous pool and bar area and the staff were lovely. Bar menu was good and food was really nice. The restaurant’s on the beach front were lovely, we went to Wave restaurant 3 times in a week the food was exceptional and such a beautiful setting. We did try Mike’s Hotel restaurant one night and the quality of food was shocking! We waited 75 minutes from ordering to receiving our ‘food’ and it was inedible. 3 of us ordered the special and 2 separate meals for the children. The pasta was raw and snapped under the touch of fingers, the specials were inedible and the chicken was definitely not chicken! We honestly couldn’t believe how busy it was in there as the food we received was so bad and none of us ate our meal. After speaking to someone round the pool they also said how horrible their food was from Mike’s restaurant so we definitely didn’t think this was a one off! That was the only negative and the apartments and other restaurants were spot on…
