I've stayed here before and I love it!! Absolutely beach front, with umbrella-covered lounges on the sand. Sea water is warm, with cool spots, due to a river flowing into the water further up. The owner, Chris, exudes hospitality. He remembers you from trip-to-trip and does everything in his power to ensure that you have a great stay. The rooms... More

Right on the beach, the view from the room is astonishing. I spent a week there and the staff and owner made me feel like I was home. There's a direct bus that will get you in the center in 10 minutes. The food is good and affordable, as well as the breakfast buffet. The beach is made of fine... More

First of all, it is only fair that I mention that we were in one of the last rooms to be renovated. That said.... If your dream vacation consists of laying on the beach from dawn to dusk then staying in the hotel may be the place for you. The beach is, literally, just across the street. That fact, a... More

I'm just back home, and I can't wait to be back at the Aptera Beach Hotel. The place itself it's amazing, so close to the beach you sleep lulled by the sea, but seriously it's the staff making it so gorgeous: Christos, both the Vassilis, Jane and all the others. Personally I found a little heaven, but I suggest everyone... More

We had a choice: two superior double rooms with sea view or a triple room with an extra bed with mountain view. We knew from the reviews that the superior rooms were better, but since we were on a low budget trip we choose the other option. The room was ok for the price we paid and being on the... More

I had just a night and two days here as it was my final port of call back to London. It was at the end of a desolate road overlooking the beach for which I had intended. The Host was lovely who checked me in and out - so genuine! The Sea view unfortunately was a side sea view, so... More

Our hotel instructed us for this beach site, arriving we easily find free parking and we managed to find a spot with shadow, believe me it was so hot that if you leave the car in the sun you better walk back.

I was surprised at the quality of my room given that the rates were not very expensive. I had a great view of the (not too crowded) beach with a lot of space. The staff was always very friendly and accommodating. It was the perfect location to relax and enjoy while still being relatively close to city. The next time... More

We stayed there for three nights and our experience was incredible.
