Spent a week here. First solo holiday. Good welcome. Lovely room with balcony. Good bar, clean pool and area, lovely private beach with waiter service after midday. Only drawback was the restaurant was not in operation until I was leaving. There are lots of restaurants etc nearby but hadn't wanted to go out at night alone. Fortunately it was also self catering. Would return.

EMI Apartments Review Building Located just off the main road towards the beach, EMI Apartments is a charming white/blue block. Nice open reception/bar area which leads to pool and sun beds, then walk down towards the beach and there are private sun beds on the beach, also a small covered seating area. Room Small room but suitable in size for a couple, small 2 ring kitchen top, sink and fridge including all dish wear. Bathroom was compact. Bed comfortable. Tv sporadically worked, sometimes could get all the channels, sometimes just 1 English. Food/Drink I only ate here during the day, the pool snacks were tasty and reasonably priced, and the lovely bar staff would occasionally walk round and ask if you needed anything, and you paid at the end of the day, which was very handy. Location Bus stop into Heraklion and the “tourist train” right out the front, directly on the beach, perfect location. Ammoudara is a nice small town, 5k outside of Heraklion. Would I return? Without a doubt, George and his family are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. I love where I stayed, the location and true apartments were spot on!

Had an incredibly relaxing week here at the Emi Apartments last week. A small family run establishment, we were allocated a large family room that had everything you would need, basic but clean. Well situated for local tavernas, bus routes and taxis. With its own section of the beach, with real sand!! The swimming pool is small but fits in perfectly. George and his family work very hard to keep all their guests happy, nothing to much trouble, we would highly recommend Emi Apartments should you be looking for a nice quiet relaxing place for your holiday. Would go back in an heart beat.
