these apartments are clean and well equiped, all the staff are very friendly and your made to feel welcome, this is my 4th visit to the apollon and i would return again and again, the weather is always lovely and the people who also seem to return every year are very friendly too, sometimes you need to get your towels on the sunbeds early but that didnt bother me, the apartments are about a 5-10 mins stroll to the main street, the resteraunt at the bottom of the street is very nice and its nice to see the locals dining there to also marem serves the best stifado, also if u fancy a curry try shalu kalu (i think thats the name) indian chefs a bit more expensive than other resteraunts but defo worth every penny. back at the hotel bar watch out for lefty's shots of raki theyl have u on ur back, he is the best bar man u'l ever meet and is so friendly and welcoming he remembers u every time you go back he makes the apollon such a fun place to be.

Stayed here first two weeks of July and had a great time. I wasn't worried at all about the hotel having read the reviews before we left, but it still came as a wee bit of a shock how far we were from the main resort . However, it really is only a 10 to 15 min walk to the centre. It's a bit dark coming back to the hotel at night, but we never felt uncomfortable or threatened. The hotel itself is lovely - not too big, a beautifully kept pool with plenty of sunloungers for all (although people still get up through the night to book theirs - unbelievable!!!!) and friendly, helpful staff . The apartment was really nice with a balcony, which was lovely to sit out on if you wanted a change from the "pool scene". However, the lack of storage space was a bit of a problem - 2 VERY small drawers in the bedroom and one built in cupboard. Not really enough when there's three of you and you are staying for a fortnight. I also agree with another reviewer about the noise at night - if you have a poolside room you have to listen to a "singer" one night and a bingo caller another - this goes on until after 11.30 which can be really annoying. So the advice is, if you want peace and quiet in the evening - get a room away from the pool area. However, overall this hotel gets a big thumbs up from us - we really enjoyed our stay here and would certainly recommend it to anyone travelling to Crete.

Well the kids enjoyed it .The pool and staff was not to bad it was the room service. 5 times in 14 nights they say they clean the rooms every other day but that does not include sundays.If you have been to Greece before you know all about the loo paper thing well they didnt even come around to empty the bins for that .The room itself wasnt that clean either. I dont think you can blame the cleaner as she was the only one we saw all fortnight and she had over 60 rooms to clean plus the rest of the complex. the owners are mean to say the least, that reflects with the bar and onsite shop prices too get your food and drink elsewere its much cheaper.The fridge ice compartment was broken and there was no plug for the sink .we did mange to get a plug after a few days of asking but they never sorted the fridge out. Iexpect that the plug was taken from another room as it was not a new one.My opion look somewhere else theres much better accomadation around.

We enjoyed our weeks stay in a studio apartment, the pool area was clean and had plenty of loungers, the breakfast was fantastic and overall we thought the room was adequate. Only downside was it was a bit noisy in the room in the evening as we were very close to the bar area. The location was good, a bit away from the beach but an easy walk down to it. The resort itself was fairly low key, which we liked, loads of nice resteraunts and only a few minutes by taxi from Rethymnon itself.

We stayed two weeks at these apts and have no complaints really at all. Apts were really clean and fresh, maid service every two days with clean sheets, towels etc. We did have a tv in our room, wasn't expecting that so it was a nice surprise, even though you only got two news tv channnels in english!, there was one really cheesy soap in english but hey we werent there to watch tv.

the pool was nice and kepy clean, every day the cleaners were on site cleaning away whatever and the petals from the climbing flowers which were beautiful.

all the holiday makers mixed and were really pleasant

the bingo nights were fun but the winners i thought were a bit dubious, seemed to be folk who came just for the bingo and not staying in the apts!!!!! but thats another story.

Lefty the barman is absolutely amazing if ever there was a position of barman to be filled this wee chap is the ace, great laugh and plenty of shotsxx go lefty xx

would go back no complaints.
