Surrounded by a peaceful Mediterranean garden, this modern apartment-complex offers plenty of Greek charm. You won’t find a huge resort packed with guests, but that’s its magic. What you do get is a family-run hotel, designed like a small village, set away from the main road, approximately 300 metres to the seafront, along with the good old fashioned Cretan hospitality. Our guests love to chill out and relax at Ourania Apartments. Accommodation at the hotel consists of spacious apartments, suitable for couples and families. And what better way to enjoy the calm surroundings than from the comfort of a lounger? The pool terrace is dotted with sunbeds and parasols, so there’s no need to put your towels down before sunrise. And if you follow the sound of ice cubes clinking into a glass, you’ll find the handy snack bar. If ever there were apartments that prove less is certainly more, welcome at Ourania Apartments...

Just returned from Crete. Lovely large, bright apartment - free upgrade. Friendly, flexible staff. Good, cheap all day breakfasts and light meals breakfasts, but not very Greek. Quiet beach about 10 minutes walk away - a little further than we thought. Sea was warm enough to swim in, but hotel pool was cold at this time of the year. Apartment had self catering facilities, adequate, but sparse. One supermarket open, with good souvenirs, but not much fresh food. A victim of Covid, I think, and also very end of season. We would go there again with Easyjet Holidays as we each had hold 23kg bags, flight and transfers included. Well worth the trip. Thank you, Kostas and the staff.

We ended up at the Ourania by accident as our travel agents had failed to tell us the original booking for our accommodation had decided to close. Fortunately this hotel had space and could sort it out with our travel agents. How lucky were we as we had an amazing time staying here. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. My friend who was on holiday with me fell in love with the local cats. They always greeted us at our apartment. The facilities were the best I have ever seen in a self catering establishment. The cleaning was excellent and adhered to COVID-19 rules. The furniture was a very high standard and I have never slept so well in a bed abroad before. The pillows were so soft! The shower was large with lots of hot water and good pressure and again very clean. Towels and sheets changed at regular intervals and apartment swept. I was very appreciative of the maid service and left a thank you present for them. Thank you for helping us in our dilemma and we will definitely come and stay with you again Costa, if only to say hello to the cats! Vicky & Sue

In the madness of Corona we managed to get away to Greece for an 11 night stay. Lovely clean apartments, friendly staff, nice pool, good bar & food. The full English was perfect & a great club sandwich. Keep an eye out for Bob the cat, he’s in charge! Only a short walk to the beach & restaurants. Would go back in a heartbeat. In fact wish I’d stayed out there...

We have just returned after a 10 day break, and what a delight it was. The staff are very friendly, the food very good, and the accommodation clean and tidy. The rooms had the sheets and towels changed every other day and the bins daily. The beach and restaurant are only a five minute walk. If I return to Crete, I could only start here as it is a little gem, run by an excellent Manager and staff. Thank you to everyone for making our short stay so enjoyable.

Stayed here for a quick break to get some sunshine. Had such a lovely time and the apartments were perfect, only 15-20 mins from the airport in a taxi. Greeted in reception for a quick check in, and had our bags taken up the room right away. The pool was lovely and clean with the bar area overlooking. Beach is a five minute walk away as are the supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The staff at the apartments all spoke brilliant English and were very helpful. So helpful in fact they let us have the room until late evening rather than the usual 12pm check out, which when you have a 11.30pm flight is SO helpful so that we could get showered and packed in our own time and at no extra cost! Would definitely stay here again.
