Reviewed September 23, 2013

The hotel is clean and quiet. Not a party location although the owner goes out of his way to make you feel at home. I am told this is typical of people who live in crete, they are extremely hospitable. We were invited to eat with the family and offered LOTS of Raki :)

Please note, directly opposite the hotel is a FANTASTIC organic butcher. He sells amazing Raki and Feta which was Delicious.

The hotel is located in a remote area so a car is recommend if not essential. A great location for exploring the west side of the island. One of the best nearby beaches is Falasarna a small drive approximately 30 mins away by car. The local beach is pebbly water is not a clear as Falasarna.

There is a bus stop 2-3 min walk from the hotel which is serviced in summer 20- 30 min intervals, until midnight. The bus goes to Chania via the old road which runs along the edge of the island which is a 40- 50 min journey air conditioned buses and approximately 2.50 euros. Chania is a quick 15 - 20 min drive on the motorway.

There are two local supermarkets nearby turn left out of the hotel and walk about 15 mins.

Room Tip: Top floor facing the sea if possible

Clean, comfy rooms. Fantastic host, great pool. Fantastic value and atmosphere in weekly bar b q. Nothing too much trouble. Slightly further to walk to harbour than expected, 25 mins. Wasnt expecting the wind and waves on the beach, but have since discovered normal in july, august. A great base for hiring a car. Try the travel agency over the road. Decent value trips from there too.

Can add nothing further about the wonderful host and the running of the place - it's all been said before. Just wanted to point out that I arrived stressed, fed up and very ready to find fault.
Within a couple of days I was cruising through the pool delighting in the smell of freshly cut grass and watching dragonflies inches from me. Early July was very hot but oh so relaxing.
We.re going back in September! Thank you Mike and staff.

To stat off I would like to mention are host, mike, a very nice man who is more than happy to help you in anyway possible be this giving you free food as you sit by the pool or bar, sitting down for a meal with his friends and family or driving you out for a look at the worlds oldest olive tree or to Kolymbari to see their fish festival. The room was also great, very clean and spacious. The local area is more than enough to keep you busy throughout your trip, with restaurants and bars only a ten minuet walk away, two convince stores just across the road and two supermarkets just a short walk the other way. The nearest beach is only across the road and while it may be pebbly not sandy still as crystal clear waters. If you want a sandy beach or to visit Chania then just jump on one of the regular buses going either way. This is a really nice place with a great host. 10/10

Really would recommend these apartments to anyone mikey the owner/host makes this holiday we have never stopped anywhere before with such a great host.We went to the pool every morning & he brought us over pastries or melon when you go for a drink he give you a plate of food with lots of different foods on it.we were robbed while we were there our own fault we left our window open mikey was really upset & took my husband down to the police station 3 times to speak to the police luckily they caught the people ( not Greeks but immigrants) .he has a great BBQ on Thursday nights, there is so much food & free drinks you don't need to eat for quite a while the apartments are lovely & clean & all have great views there are some nice places to walk but as the weather was so hot we didn't walk a great deal.this is one of the best holidays we have had for a long time & even though we had the robbery & a 7 hour delay on our flight home we will be back to enjoy the warmth,hospitality,& the beautiful area & apartments.
