Nice apartment, clean and comfortable. We only stayed one night and didn't use the pool but it looked gorgeous. A short walk to the beach and bars and tavernas in Maleme, also not far from very built up Platanias, I think there was a bus and a toy train running along the main road. Also very quiet, but we were ahead of the main season. There is a nice looking veggie restaurant on site (we didn't try it though)

Through Hostelworld I booked a two-bedroom apartment for 4, but when we arrived the owner was surprised that we were four. She thought we booked a studio for two. But she made no fuzz at all and gave us two studios for two without any extra charge. Meanwhile she may have corrected the info. We had a wonderful stay at Seashell Apartments! We even stayed an extra night. It is quiet, relaxed, the room was ok, the kitchenette was ok, and the pool was superb! One of our daughters is allergic to soap and thus to a lot of chemicals that are used in swimming pools, but at the salt water pool of Seashells she had no problem at all. Small supermarket opposite the apartments, a big supermarket further down the road. One day we went to Omalos, to walk the Samaria Gorge, by taxi (Nikos Salavantakis, recommendable!). It’s only a one hours drive. Came back by boat and bus. Sara, Lisa and others, thank you for a lovely stay at Maleme! We really enjoyed it and we’ll be back!

We stayed at these apartments for one week. Sara , the owner was very pleasant and helpful.
The room was clean, kitchenette was adequate for our needs consisting of a sink, a double ring hob, a fridge and a couple of cupboards. No air conditioning but there was a , much needed fan in the room. There was a safe without a key. (We did ask for the key but it didn't materialise). The room was cleaned daily and the towels changed in the week.
The garden and pool area were superb - The pool was a salt water pool - it was a really lovely setting.
The beach nearby was pebbly but it was quiet and beautiful about 10 minutes walk from the apartments. There were plenty of Tavernas at Maleme about 15/20 minutes walk away. There isn't a great deal to do in the area but we hired a car for a few days and the buses run regularly.
On a negative side for us was the fact that we are boring go to bed early and get up early people whereas these apartments didn't settle down (noise wise) until the early hours of the morning - loud voices, dogs barking, doors slamming. Having said that we had the pool to ourselves in the mornings as most people got up later in the day.
We appreciate people like to stay up late on their holidays so we had to accept that we wouldn't have peaceful nights until the early hours.
Despite this we liked the apartments, we loved Crete and had a super time.
