Just this evening got back from the Kalithea apts.
My wife and I spent 10 nights and loved every minute of our stay.
As it was early season the Restaurant was not open but as seasoned Crete visitors this was not a problem as friends made over the years directed us to the better places to eat.
The pool is fantastic and has great views down to Aghios Nikolaos.
There is a good bar with snacks/breakfast available on request and the 3 pc's are available with free internet access in the reception area.
However, the Apartments are 3.5 kms to Elounda and 5kms to Aghios (roughly) so that would be about 7euros to Elounda and 10 euros to Aghios if you go by Taxi.
Havana beach is a short taxi ride away and the Restaurant above Olgas is a perfect place to enjoy a meal or just chill with a Mythos and still be able to monitor the beach should you have children with you.(and possibly serves the best Saganaki in Crete ! )
The bus service runs across the front of the Apts but flagging the things down is difficult to say the least :(
Maria the cleaner keeps the Apartments spotless and is quite a character around the place and Manolis will call you a cab from Reception should you need one.
I am a Mosqito magnet and suffered a few bites so bring your anti mozzie gear !
And on reflection I would definitely pay for the Air conditioning. Even early in the season it was blisteringly hot in our room which was a small studio overlooking the Pool (and the amusing Goat filled field on the opposite side of the road )
If you fancy a really laid back meal with possibly THE Best views in Crete then pop over the road to the Adrakos Apts (to the side of the Mirum building ) Kostis and his Family have created a very special atmosphere with superb food and gardens ( no menu...just ask what they have that day..you will not be disappointed )
For us. It was perfect. At the price. Unbelievable !
I disagree with the negative views stated by others but maybe they were first time visitors to Crete and just don't get the ambience. We will return to the Kalithea complex. But definitely with the air Con.
