“The BEST”
Reviewed July 5, 2010

Zorbas has to be one of the best. We stayed in June 10 for one week. We booked a one bed apartment which was very spacious and clean. There was a full bathroom with bath and powerful shower. We were on the front ground floor and had a good size balcony / terrace over looking the street, good for watching the world go by. The owners are all one family, Mum Dad and Sons. They are lovely people and nothing was to much trouble. Every morning Mum would lean over the end wall of your terrace and give us a nice cup of coffee on the house. Zorbas is also a Tavern with a small bar. The food is very tasty mainly traditional Cretan dishes. On our first night, as we waited for your meal to come, the local priest sat at a table behind us with the owners and some guests who have been returning year after year. They all seamed to be fiddling with something in a bucket and a knife and spoon. Being very curious my husband and I asked what they were doing. Sea urchin was the reply and then promptly given one cut in half to try. (It must be eaten alive or it is poisonous). You pour a little olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice on to the orange roe in side and then scoop out with a piece of bread. It was very good and with a distinct taste of the sea and meant to be an aphrodisiac. As we obviously approved we were then presented with another one. We felt very honoured as the sea urchin is considered by the Greeks to be a great delicacy, better then caviar and very expensive.
Zorbas doesn’t have sea and mountain views but being only 3 minutes walk to the beach and a 100 meters to the main square, is in an excellent position. Georgiouplois is a lovely little village with a nice main square. It also had the Almiros River running through to the sea and a little harbour area. Therefore sea food is always good and very fresh. The beach goes on for miles and it is easy to find a less populated spot to spend the day. Beware though of strong under currents on a windy day. There are life guard stands scattered along the beach which is reassuring.
We hired a Jeep as there is a lot to see and do in the area. We have been visiting Greece for many years and been to many of the islands. We love Crete but our stay at Zorbas made our holiday. Would we stay there again? You bet, in fact we could happily move in. We will be back

Just returned from a wonderful two weeks in June. Zorbas was excellent. Spacious, spotlessly clean rooms, well serviced. Overlooking a quiet but very interesting side street. Restaurant provided very good, reasonably priced meals. Staff all very friendly and not at all pushy. Nice quiet pool. Look forward to returning next year.
