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...

Enjoyed a brilliant week here at the end of October. Very quiet as half term hadn't really started with British schools. Had a great week, facilities very good, development spotlessly clean and near lots of tavernas. What more could you want!

We had an enormous one bed apartment in the older section. The complex is wonderfully maintained and has a real mini village feel to it. The bar area was a treat and you could swim in the large Metaxas. Defo go back. Thank you Costas

Stayed in this area last year at the Island Hotel, but this year wanted something self catering, the Island was good, but the meal times are restrictive and we wanted to sample the delights of the Many restaurants available in this area. So glad we did, The Hotel was a delight. The drop off at the top of the road can be confusing but a short down hill walk brings you to the front door. Check in was quick and first impressions was Small and friendly. Our room was well presented, it was large and clean with a good sized shower room, bit strange no shower door, water didnt go every where but it had a good try!! Good sized and very comfy double bed, bed settee and loads of cupboard and drawer storage. Small kitchen area was adequate, sink, kettle, hot plates, cups and dishes, cutlery, fridge.NO Microwave, but not really needed. Large sign says dont use the water even in the kettle, this means buying your own, can be bought/ordered through the hotel, however we used the Supermarket next to the Anfield Bar, cheaper and more user friendly than others near by. 9Ltr =€1.8 Very cheap. Also bear in mind you need dish cloths, washing liquids etc!! A large L shaped balcony was accesed via sliding doors from our room, table and chairs in situ. The hotel has a nice pool and bar area, it also offers a good variety of food. It is just a short walk down to the beach area or up the hill to the bus stops. This was a really good visit and we will certainly return.

What a fabulous holiday, The hotel is set out in stunning grounds and feels like a little Greek village We were made so welcome by Kostas ,stella and the staff from day 1 and we would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing quiet holiday with nothing too much trouble. We had a free upgrade on arrival and the cleanliness was not only in the rooms but everywhere. Kostas works hard to ensure you have a Good holiday and makes you want to return. Looking forward to returning soon, lots of Crete still to visit with the ourania a great base and a lovely clean resort with plenty to do and see. Andy and Sharon September 2019
