Just got back from a week in Gouves and I would highly recommend Ourania Apartments. The staff are so friendly and helpful, they even remembered one day when we hadn't had breakfast and let us have lunch instead! The place has a wonderful chilled and relaxed vibe. Recommended for couples or young families. Nearby tavernas and bars are between 5-10... More

Costas ensures these apartments are clean and well maintained. Lovely pool area, five to ten minutes walk to beach, supermarkets and restaurants. On flight path to Heraklion, but never been a problem. Have visited four times and would recommend.

Excellent accommodation at a very good price. The apartments are functional and clean and the linen is changed very regularly. Kostas and his staff are very friendly and helpful and can't do enough to make sure you have an enjoyable holiday. Thanks very much.

These apartments are basic but clean, and provide a great base to explore the island of Crete. The towels are changed every other day and the bedding also changed frequently. The pool was pretty small, but big enough for the amount of rooms. The breakfasts at the bar were absolutely delicious and plentiful in portion size. The cocktails were fantastic... More

Three of us stayed at the Ourania Hotel in May 2016. The price was low and I was prepared for the hotel to be very modest. We were very surprised that the place is wonderful. It is very well-cared for, the staff was friendly and helpful, our room was comfortable. We were sorry that we could not stay longer. I... More

Where to start..? I've been to various apartments and hotels in different parts of Greece since i was going on holiday with my parents as a child but Ourania and Gouves combined blew us away. As this was my partners first holiday abroad (and i kind of threw him in at the deep end with booking a holiday in Greece... More

We spent 11 nights here and all in all the experience was positive, but there are a few aspects that travelers should take in consideration. We got an upper apartment, which in terms of size was really good for two people. It is basic, but I would not expect anything different for a sea holiday place. It might need some... More

This complex is vast, but it still has a small and friendly feel about it. It is about a 5 minute walk to the beach and nearest supermarkets. There are a handful of restaurants nearby, all of them excellent, but you have to get out and explore, rather than them being on the seafront, they are on roads leading down... More

This apartment complex is excellent and has a village feel about it. It is managed by Costas who is a larger than life character, good fun, always approachable, always very helpful, and always has a smile despite his eighteen hour working day. Any problems are addressed very quickly. For example we did have a problem with our fridge and before... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There’s a lot to be said for a small, peaceful hotel. If you’re looking to really chill out, you won’t get much peace at a bustling mega hotel. So that’s where the Ourania Apartments come in.You won’t find a huge resort packed with guests, but that’s its charm. What you do get is pin-drop peace and quiet, along with a bit of good old fashioned Greek hospitality. ... more   less
