“Wonderful time at the mirabella”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Just returned from a week at the mirabella apartments a lovely week with amazing views, our apartment was spacious comfortable and clean. The food was freshly prepared and good I recommend the healthy breakfast delicious and the chicken with salad very very good.
The pool and the jacuzzi area is very good and you feel that you are in your own private space, the staff are very welcoming and friendly and nothing is to much trouble I have stayed in hotels around the world but this beats them all, this is due to the welcome you receive and you feel at home immediately, you can relax and unwind in this little piece of paradise a very heartfelt thank you to Elizabeth who takes the time and trouble to get to know her guests and has lots of knowledge of the area and can advise and arrange anything you choose to do.
I look forward to returning next year if not before thank you for making this holiday special

Thank you so much for your very kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you and to get to know you. We hope you have a fantastic road trip to the US and look forward to hearing all about it on your next visit to us.

As a small and independent hotel we do try to get to know as many guests as possible and offer them all the help they need to have the best holiday possible.

We offer freshly prepared food all through the day and well into the night, guests can pre-book our special evening meal or order from the menu. For guests who pre-book continental breakfast please note that you can change to any other meal offered and pay any difference either at the end of your stay or daily.

We were so proud that "our" Mirrabella Apartments gained the top ranking in Agios Nikolaos during our recent stay in June. We would totally agree with this ranking, hence our return visit. We had a perfect holiday. We even enjoyed an unplanned trip to the wonderful island of Spinalonga paid for by the apartments, as a kind gesture, to compensate for solar panels being fitted on one of the days during our stay. We are at the moment trying to arrange a third visit in October to the number one Apartments!
ps Elizabeth, hope your mum had a lovely birthday.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a wonderful view over Mirabello bay, but we did enjoy the view even more this tim...

Many thanks for your lovely review and we are so glad you enjoyed the perfect return visit. We take the welfare of our guests and environment very seriously and decided that it would be unfair to them to be present whilst we had a new eco electric system installed. We were very happy to arrange and pay for taxi journeys and boat trips to the island of Spinalonga, Elounda and Agios Nikolaos. The new eco electric system compliments the eco water system we installed over the winter months.
We look forward to welcoming you home for your third visit :-)

Last June I visited the Mirabella apartments with family and friends like we have been doing for the past nine year's now. However, as I wrote last year I would be coming along this year with a 'gaggle of women'. What a blinding time all twelve of us had. The apartments were up to there usual clean and friendly standards with Kola, Irene, and Clio working hard to make sure we had the holiday we have come to expect from this fantastic place. Elizabeth made sure we had everything we wanted down to milk and water in the fridges, upon our arrival at some unearthly hour in the morning. My daughters, niece, daughter in-law and friends all want to come back again. For some it was their first experience of Agios Nikolaos and the Mirabella apartments, but they all enjoyed the shopping, night life, restaurants and the quiet haven of the superb location, especially when nursing saw heads from the night before. I am going again in September for a slightly more subdued holiday with my husband and a couple of cousins and like us I am sure they will enjoy it as much as we do. I am already arranging the next big family holiday here for Sept 2014. Thank you once again for a superb holiday. Chris A.

And it was a pleasure to see you all again and to welcome new friends :-) Whilst there will be fewer people in September we are sure that you will have another fantastic holiday with us. September 2014 will be a great time for us to see all your family again.

For some people returning to the same place is not something they would consider and we do completely understand that there are so many places in the world to visit. However when guests come back to us again and again and introduce their friends and family to us, it is the best compliment you can give us.

If guests would like any provisions to be in their accommodation for their arrival please contact us and we will be happy to help. As well as the "normal" food and drink items, we can also arrange flowers, chocolates, cake and champagne for special occasions to be in the room for arrival or during the stay.

See you soon.

We have just returned from a week's stay at the Mirabella Apartments, which we booked after reading all of the positive comments on TripAdvisor, and I have to say that all of the great reviews are bang on!

Mirabella Apartments is an absolutely fantastic choice for a relaxed break in the sun. The apartments are clean and comfortable and the location is idyllic with fantastic views across the bay. The pool is great and there is a lovely beach which can be accessed down a path leading from the apartments.

The service we received was nothing short of amazing with the family who own the apartments all being so attentive and lovely at all times.

I would recommend the Mirabella Apartments to anyone looking for a no-hassles break in the sun. I will be returning I am sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea/pool view if you can.

Thank you so much for your compliments, recommendation and lovely review. As a family run and independent hotel our emphasis is on our guests enjoyment providing an attentive and friendly service but without being intrusive. Whilst our guests arrive as guests we hope they leave as friends. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

We appreciate all the reviews our guests make to tripadvisor and we hope prospective guests will know they will be well looked after by us. For reviews that contain a suggestion or a recommendation where we can introduce a chance, we try to action these as quickly as possible. We have installed hand rails for guests who are less mobile, tidied the play area and installed new steps leading to the beach and the blue flag beach of Havania can now be reached by a new pathway that we created this year, which runs between the sea and the Apartments. Our 15m pool with Jacuzzi offers a lovely place to chill and relax. Even when the apartments are fully reserved, guests can often find themselves swimming in their own "private" pool.

As long time visitors to the Agios Nikolaos area we were so very pleased to be able to provide you with accommodation that gave you the best views ever. All accommodation at the Mirabella Apartments have sea views over the Bay of Mirabello. I also enjoyed our daily chats over breakfast very much and I hope to be able to continue these chats next year.

Whilst we do not have a fitness centre or spa on the premises we are able to arrange or recommend places for beauty treatments, exercise or the sheer luxury of a day pass at a 5 star spa. Details are available from me in Reception.

It truly is a home away from home… Mirabella apartments are a wonderful, relaxing, laid back, friendly and warm place to stay!! We had a huge room with a balcony overlooking the pool. Although we didn’t swim as it was a bit chilly, we definitely took the time to have a few cocktails each day by the pool. It’s a few kms from town but we had a car so didn’t find this a problem.

The staff there were all so friendly and the prices of food and drink so reasonable. We played pool in the courtyard and even had our wines delivered to us there, so lovely.

Definitely were grateful for the mini mart inside the reception office too! Thank you to Cleo (sorry, spelling) for our late night meals and white wine with ice in it!

Definitely felt like I was at home… and could have stayed much longer than 3 days… will try to come back one day.

Thank you so much, we really appreciate your comments and hopefully on your next European tour from "down under" we will see you for a longer stay :-)

The Studio that was allocated to you offers spacious accommodation on the first floor and the view from the balcony is amazing. The slogan of the Mirabella Apartments is "your home in Crete" and we are so glad that you felt right at home with us.

Our snack bar offers breakfast, lunches, evening meals and all day snacks and is open from 7.30am until very late and we agree that Clio (Κλειώ) makes fantastic cocktails.

Watersports can be arranged and good pool. The family and Elizabeth made us most welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Had a really wonderful relaxing time. Shaded and friendly cafe/bar next to the pool and small shop for essentials Looking forward to our return.

We are also looking forward to your return and we hope that you will enjoy more time on the SUP boards. The crystal clear waters of Mirabello Bay make SUP surf a very enjoyable way to pass a few hours.
The town of Agios Nikolaos is a pleasant 40 minute walk away and on route their are many place to stop and enjoy the view, have a cold drink or a meal. We can arrange for a taxi to collect guests for the 5 minute drive in to town. The local bus time table is also available in reception and the running times have been extended for the summer 2013 season. If contacted beforehand we can also send guests a link to the bus time table if they wish to use the buses whilst here or travel from the Airport to Agios Nikolaos instead of using a transfer company.
