The friendliness of the hotel was amazing and really made my holiday arrived fairly late was given a drink and was made something to eat before being shown to our room which was lovely. The room was clean, comfortable and the balcony had a lovely veiw of the hills! Great value breakfast and lovely snacks available for Lunch! Really enjoyed the Great Greek Dancing and BBQ night and Karaoke was a good laugh too. Great restaurants very close by with lovely food and entertainment if you want it. Beach was nice due to cool sea breeze which took the edge off the heat and loved jumping in the waves it was great! Pool at apartments very nice too when we wanted to give the sand a miss! Takis next door very informative about local tours available and looking forward to going back and visting the Samaria gorge as didnt have time this trip!! Would definately visit again!!

The appartments are simple but clean and well maintained.
The family and staff that run the appartments are incredibly friendly and helpful.
It's just a shame that Crete is so expensive.
The area is a good base for visiting various parts of Crete.
Recommend a trip into the mountains, Knossos, Rethymnon and Water City.
Best quality local restaurant was Neighbours (not cheap) but if you want a cheap value for money meal go to Mr Gyros, it's brilliant. Cocktail bar opposite Christina's is fantastic.
Don't miss the Greek night at Christina's (BBQ and dancing) - it's well worth it and make sure you do the walk to the local villages.
Be aware that on windy days the sea can get very rough and will have red flags flying.
Other restaurants we liked were Vergina 1 and Remember. We did not like White Lady.

We went on a very last minute cheapo deal with Thompsons who have apparently rented the entire apartment complex for the season - so expectations were not too high. However we were really pleasantly surprised. The apartments, one room with separate bathroom, are clean, comfortable, well laid out and equipped - some have sea views, some overlook the pool and some have views of he next set of apartments. The pool is nice and the full English breakfast (large edition) at 6€ is worth the money for those who get 'fry-up' withdrawl. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and deserve the praise they have received elsewhere.

Unfortunately it is the area itself which is a big let down. The whole length of coast from Heraklion to Chania is one large strip development of hotels, apartments, souvenir shops, bars, and restaurants serving unpleasant imitations of the wonderful Cretan cuisine. Bizarrely there are also lots of shops selling fur coats, no doubt catering for the ever increasing number of Russians that have taken to visiting Crete. However it is all easily avoided - rent a car at the airport and 2 minutes drive will take you into the Crete of the glossy guidebooks.

Should you want to visit the fabulous Archeological Museum in Heraklion be aware it is still shut for renovations - they have reduced the collection to one largish room. All the highlights are there but it is cramped, noisy and at generally heaving with humanity - a thoroughly dispiriting experience.

Visited the Christina for the third time over the last eleven years. Had a fab holiday. Kostas, Nikos, Joan, Aiden and Annemarie all make it a special holiday. We went over to Elafonisi beach, this is a 2 hour drive and the road is single track in the mountains but well worth it. If you want to hire a car Traffic across the road are great. For food visit Remember just up the road and of course the White Lady. Apartments basic but clean and makes for a relaxing holiday.
