Reviewed June 6, 2013

Here for a week with my girlfriend and have loved it. Stavros and his wife are kind and gentle and always available to help. The apartment is spotless as is the restaurant and pool area. We were in the second row back apartment 27 which offered a view of the sea and was far enough back to not have the noise from the pool. A safe is an additional 10 euros and air con 30 but not needed for us. There are some planes going over head but with the Wi does and doors shut these are not an issue at night. There is a nice beach 5 mins walk away and the town 10 mins walk which is lively. Everyone around is helpful and no sign of any trouble whatsoever. A definite yes if you are booking and have doubts.

Myself and my 2 friends aged 23 stayed here for 7 nights on the 21st of may 2013. For the price we were overwhelmed with how comfortable and clean the apartment was. Above all was the welcoming and hard working manager Stavros who exceeded our expectations along with the help of his wife making us delicious breakfasts every morning at whatever time we were ready to eat. the apartments are in a perfect location just a 10 minute walk to the center of hersonssios which has plenty of varieties of bars restaurants and tavernas. My two friends are vegetarian and did not struggle with finding delicious vegetarian foods in this resort, many of the eateries we visited were more than happy to make my friends what they wanted if it was not on the menu. One eatery in particular was along the beach managed by Mr Giovanni 'Know Bar'. Mr Giovanni was the most attentive genuine host we experienced in hersonissos and not only is his eatery classy in decor his food is delicious and his staff are also very friendly. For best Greek taverna try 'Mythos' we went there 3 times fabulous moussaka and risotto for veggies and for me; chunky chicken kebabs every time! overall this accommodation is a perfect peaceful base close to the lovely resort of hersonissos with many reasonable priced restaurants and bars to choose from. (p.s. the beach is 5minutes away too!)

My partner and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Saradari apartments.
After reading the reviews before we went, I was curious to find out if the these apartments and the staff were really as good as the reviews....absolutely spot on!
The apartments are situated approximately 10 minutes walk from the centre of the main resort in a quiet location. There are 18 apartments, traditional in appearance and are very clean with pretty flowers growing on the balconies.
As to the staff.....Stavros and his wife are welcoming and very hard working. Nothing is too much trouble what ever the time of the day or night! While we were there two differnt groups of people had returned for another holiday and Stavros treated them like part of the family.
One night he organised a bbq, I think everyone staying at the apartments went to it. It was a great way to meet new people and even more importantly the food was delicious and very cheap.
I will certainly be going back there for another holiday and I would highly recommend it.

My husband and I have been going to the saradari since 2007, and we go back every year because of stavros and ellie who make you so welcome that you feel your going back home, we would not go anywhere else stavros and ellie are both fabulous cooks and the b.b.qs are great, we met some great friends the first time we had an holiday there, now every year since those same friends meet up at the saradari because the fun we have is so good and that is all due to stavros---ellie and the food plus the lovely flowers surrounding the appartments are so beautyful, nothing is too much trouble for stavros and ellie my advise is go there and see for yourselves

Had a great time. Stavros and his wife could not do enough for you and made us feel welcome straight away. We booked bed and breakfast, however did not make it downstairs for breakfast at any point. Stavros' view however was one of, 'if you paid for your meals, you should get them - at any time'. On some days he was making us fresh breakfast at 2:30 - and very nice they were too!
As a lecturer in travel and customer service, I do scrutinise virtually everything to do with a holiday experience and I have to say that through all of my travels I have never encountered such an easy going, friendly and helpful manager as Stavros - an absolute star. The bathroom can be thought of as being a little bit small, however this is one minor con in amongst a an ocean of pros. If you allow that to spoil your experience well you'll be better off staying in a bland chain hotel, with no real heart or culture, as this place will be lost on you

Honestly, if you are reading this and contemplating whether to go or not, the reviews speak for themselves. Whether you are with friends, family or as a couple, you will not be disappointed. I for one will definitely go back again when i return to Crete

Room Tip: Make sure you try and book b/b, as the price difference is not that much adn everything is cooked fr...

My partner and I have been going to Saradari apts. since 1997, some years twice. Now, I`m not a glutton for punishment nor the `village idiot`, so the resort must be good, (and no !, I haven`t got shares in the place) As other people have reported, Stavros and Ellie are wonderful hosts and cannot be faulted in their cleanliness of the apartments or attitude toward the guests, (5 star service !). I cannot praise these apartments or staff too strongly and suggest that readers on this site, try it, for you won`t regret it or the peace and quiet that is but a 10 / 15 minute stroll from the resort thriving resort centre. Go on, give it a bash and tell them Brucey-babe sent you.

Room Tip: 18 apartments, nothing above 2 storey and all apartments well sited.

Just endorsing a number of previous comments here:
- Rooms - bit better than normal Greek basic, and well maintained. Aircon Euro30 for a week, a must whilst we were there. Bathroom small, but acceptable. TV, but only BBC World in English. We had a good upstairs position looking across to the sea, and drying rack is a bonus. Basic kitchen facilities, but we didn't use other than the fridge, preferring to eat out. Cleanliness excellent - rooms cleaned daily, beds made up etc, and towels changed during our week.
- Location - quiet and away from the main area, but in a pleasant setting. Local small beach about 5 mins walk, but if you want a bit of "life" then the walk is about 15 minutes to the start of the main areas and other beaches, up and down a bit of a hill. If you stay by the apartment, options are limited with a small poolside menu, but happy to provide any time of day.
- Pool - small, but always adequate for the number of guests just wanting an occasional dip. Always seemed to be beds available even though only probably about 15/20.
- Stavros - plenty said already about the on-site manager and all true, he probably sets this place apart. Nothing seems too much trouble, very welcoming, and knows you by your first name. Becomes a friend in your duration, and for regular returners (there were alot whilst we were there which says a great deal about the place) seemed tio be more than that too. You feel like part of the family whilst there, and the owners and their family make regular visits and are part of the overall effect. You feel like very welcome guests at their home.

Overall, would have no problem recommending the place to anybody who is just after a simple base that can be relied upon for cleanliness, and away enough from the main resort areas to have a quiet holiday if you want it in a comfortable setting, but still close enough to walk to main areas when something more lively is required.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs with a sea view
