We were here at the start of July and to be honest were a little apprehensive about some of the reviews. Yes the insects etc were noisy but it was in a rural setting. Yes it was a bit of a walk in the dark to the main strip but so what, we were on holiday and not doing anything else. The apartments were clean and although the beds were firm they were still comfy. The owners were very friendly and the pool area was lovely. Everything we needed was nearby and the apartments were real value for money. Crete was beautiful, the people friendly, the weather far better than Scotland, the wine tasty and the food delicious. So what it wasn't a 5 star accommodation - we enjoyed every minute. We hired a fan and the safety deposit box for very little money and our only complaint about the extremely loud wedding, which went on until really late nearby, was that we didn't have an invite. They sounded like they were having a ball. Go to the Marva!
