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

Vasilis speaks a perfect Spanish and he gave us great suggestions about what to see in Crete. The hotel has an excellent location, just in... More

The Taverna attached is highly recommended as Christos's mother prepares specials on almost daily basis. everything fresh and natural and just a pleasure . We were there for 11... More

The hotel is in an excellent position near the sea and in a quiet place. Our bedroom was big, clean and comfortable; the private bathroom a little bit small and old. The staff was friendly, helpful and really nice and the Greek food we had at the taverna of the hotel was tasty and delicious. We enjoyed our staying at... More

This property is ok if you have a car to get around and don't plan to use the beach out front. We had room 306 and it is one of only 2 renovated rooms in the whole place. If you must stay at this hotel, request that room. Be aware that even a double bed is two single beds pushed... More

Thanks to Christos, Mario, Vasilis and the very kind cook. We really enjoyed our stay in Aptera Beach Hotel. The view from our room was awesome ( room 308 ) From the hotel, it was very easy to travel around Crete. Best wishes from Belgium
