Great place to be. Great people to be with, helpful, real people. Great beach, big, quiet, unique. Big rooms, clean, fully equiped. Great view to the sea from our balcony (especially the front ones) and from the tavern where you can eat well cooked traditional food. It combines the authentic hospitality of the people with the professional service of a hotel!

I had a wondeful time staying there last week.

All studios and apartments are inside a big and very well reserved farm full of olive trees. There is shadow everywhere as long as enough space for walking,or parking your car just outside your door.
Rooms are big, clean, with TV, A/C and a fully equipped kitchen, which makes the place ideal if you want to spend many days there. You can cook your own meal, but then you will miss the great restaurant of the hotel.
Everything i ate was tasteful, in very reasonable prices. And the view from the restaurant is magnificent, since the hotel is above one of the most beatiful beaches i have ever seen, Orthi Ammos. You need 3 minutes to reach the beach and about 7-10 minutes to reach the caste and the famous beach of fragokastello.
Owners and staff are very kind and friendly. In general terms, i was excited. I will definitely visit this place in the following years.
Tip: Orthi Ammos is not organised, with no umbrellas, sunbeds etc..
Tip: The place is calm, and quiet, but bring your earplus, because if is there is wind, noise from the trees may not allow you to sleep. I need approximately 2 days to get used to the windy noise.

Great location, in a big area full of olive trees. It's great for families with children. They can walk the area by themselves (totally safe), there is a nice playground and they can even bike around the area without supervision.

The rooms are very good, especially the renovated ones. No luxury but everything a family would need including a fully equipped kitchen.

The beach is right in front of the appartment complex, you just need to walk down a hill to reach it.

Overall I would definitely go there again

We stay at fata morgana last week and it was wonderful .
The rooms are spacious and clean with fantastic view from the balconies .The surounding area was among olive trees and very nice playground.

The beach orthi ammos is perfect and fantastic keep mind when there are strong winds in the area the beach is ideal the sand is wet so you dont get a sand storm!!(we had a sand storm at the main beach of fragokastelo) when its blowing
we have a very nice stay and and the owner Athina was very very friendly and helpful

The only think i didn't like was the tavern nice place but i didn't like the food
so if you want a really really nice place without noise and a fantastic beach in front of you and beautiful castle nearby this is the place without noise bars and many people simply wonderful

What can I say about this Hotel Appartments? I think even the best words could not describe this Hotel.
If you want a very very very good place in the area of Fragokastello to stay, stay here!! The rooms are super,the area big (olive trees aroound) a tasty Taverna, playgrounds , showers around.It reminds a first class Camping place with luxury appartments inside.Beautiful colours (blue-white) of the buildings, very helpful and kind owners.The beach is almost next to the Hotel and its one of the best in Crete probably one of the best all over the world!Thans to Fata Morgana for Relaxing in such a beutiful way!

Room Tip: If you prefer a view to the beach select a appartment on the 1st floor.

The location is fabulous, the appartment was ideal for us (family of five with a 14-month old baby). Spacious, well-equipped kitchen, nice balconies. Owner very friendly. Kids loved it as they could walk around by themselves, go to the playground or to our friends appartment. Very beautiful garden.

Room Tip: Big appartment ideal for families as it has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

We spent 3 days, 2 nights at the Fata Morgana and it was truly a peaceful experience. Our sons had a great time on the beach which is a short walk to a beautiful sandy spot. The hotel is amongst olive groves that provides shade, there is a playground for the kids and the room comes fully equipped with a kitchen and utensils. It is worth the trip from Chania!

Room Tip: Ask for a lower level room and close to the road - short walk to the beach.
