We loved every minute of our stay here. George & Maria offer the very best of everything and bend over backwards to look after you. We arrived late and Maria cooked us keftedes & rustled up the best Greek salad ever at a moments notice, washed down with good local wine and home made raki. Actually we may have eaten George's dinner! The rooms are spotless and have lovely 5 star touches like embroidered linen & towels. George (ask him to tell you his name in Greek) has made Kreta Natur his project for many years & the complex, whilst small, is stunning. We ate at nearby restaurants Avli, Golden Dream & Saradaris, all excellent and well priced but for fantastic Greek food it has to be Avli & Saradaris does seafood sent directly from heaven. Maria helped us practice our Greek & loved the fact we tried to learn new words everyday.

Today is our last day at the Beautiful Kreta Natur and my wife and I are very sad to be leaving this wonderful island. The Cretan people are very welcoming and genuine folk and George, the owner of Kreta Natur exemplifies those virtues. The hotel is a small complex which is set in a quite part of Annissaras but is served well by local supermarkets and is only a ten minute walk to the nearest fantastic beach or a 25 minute walk into town which has a great range of bars, restaurants, clubs and shops. If however your not that energetic a local Taxi takes just a few minutes and cost a reasonable 7€. The hotel itself is lovely, it has a very laid back feel which rubs off on you almost immediately. The hotel is maintained to a very high standard and the rooms are cleaned each and every day by a lovely hard working lady. George, the owner is a true gentleman and makes you feel like part of his extended family, it really does feel like home from home and you settle in quickly especially when George hands the gorgeous cakes around at the pool, which i hasten to add is spotlessly clean. We will be returning to Crete and can't wait to re-book Kreta Natur apartments. Oh, i nearly forgot to mention the sea views from our room, number 8 were spectacular and eating lunch on the roof terrace above the pool area with panoramic views... WOW! It is clear that the hotel is George's passion and this is clearly illustrated by the the care he shows each and every guest and I would not hesitate to recommend Kreta Natur Apartments-paradise on earth.

Magical memorable moments with my family.The owner was very kind and called us by our names, they were treated as if we were one big family. It's a nice hotel with excellent value. Pool is nice There are some taverns and also super markets nearby. Sightseeing tour is passsing by and a bus station is very clouse.

Spent the first 2 weeks of September at Kreta Natur, Crete. What can I say? Agree with every positive comment made by people before me: extremely friendly hosts, very clean location, fabulous weather. Maria's cooking is in a class of its own, even for us 2 veggies. We asked her to cook for us 5 times (giving her a day's notice) and without exception it was delicious and very reasonably priced. All the people staying at the hotel were charming and very welcoming. If I had a (very slight) critisicm it would be the 80s music played around the pool all day, but I realise that it's not music to my taste and I am sure that most people enjoyed it. Anyway, a wonderful time, great hosts and we will be back!

Room Tip: Nice sea views upstairs, don't know about downstairs

First of all we would like to thank Maria & George for creating such a wonderful holiday experience - it was everything we wanted & more. As other reviewers have indicated it is a haven of relaxation & the perfect place to recharge the batteries & de-stress. The rooms are a good size, the beds are comfortable & the view from our room (4) was lovely. George has spent considerable time & thought creating lovely surroundings & the barbeque area is fab. Maria is a wonderful cook but George can also create a mean pizza. It is a perfect location for a 'get away from it all' holiday but the town of Hersonissos is only a relatively short walk away if you prefer a livelier nightlife. As it is a relatively small complex of apartments, the atmosphere is friendly & more intimate & we have met many lovely people who we hope to stay in touch with. For me, this was a perfect holiday & Maria & George helped to make it so - we will definitely be returning & would not hesitate to recommend Kreta Natur to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday with the personal touch. Maria remember 'You're sexy & you know it' :) xx See you next year, Frank & jacqueline

Room Tip: Room 4 has a balcony & a lovely view of the sea

As a trio of young girls we wanted a more relaxing break than your typical twenty-somethings and Kreta Natur matched our expectations and more. Maria and George have created a fantastic get-away, a haven outside Hersonissos which is a must to visit. From the landscaping which George has obviously tended to greatly over the years, Maria goreous Grecian cuisine and the lovely accommodation and pool, the environment definitely has a Zen feeling. However although tranquil there us an element of care-free playfulness, complimented by Maria's playful character and the Wednesday BBQ with Greek dancing for afters, it is indeed a lovely place to truly relax. The larger town Hersonissos is a Coastal walk away which we walked to daily, for exercise and the beautiful panoramas, however taxis are equally cheap and accessible. The resort also benefits from it's size, as there are few apartments attributing to the personal family feel. I would definitely recommend it for anyone seeking a relaxing and indulgent holiday, and excellent value for money. Thank you to Maria and George for making it so memorable xxxx

We had just the most amazing holiday, so relaxing. Maria and George are 2 very special people, they go out of their way to help you and made our holiday. Maria is the most amazing cook, and we had many evenings tasting her wonderful food. A must to anyone who stays here. The holiday is for anyone who is looking for a total chilled holiday, relaxing in a quiet surrounding which are so pretty. There are some lovely walks into New Hersonissos and the Old Town. We hired a car for 2 days and saw so many lovely places and gorgeous beaches - George will give you any help with the best places to visit. We met some lovely people which made our holiday.
Will definitely go back, can't wait.
