Don't get carried away by the 5 star review as we base our holiday rating on what we wanted,what we expected and what we got. Typical Greek apartments are what we expected and these were clean and functional with basic furnishings and all with sea views. When we arrived we were met by Eleni who offered us a room that became available due to a cancellation but only for 10 days of our 14 day stay then a move back to our originally allocated room. The first room (205) was on one level on the second floor with 180 degree sea views from east to west. Small shower/toilet room but oerfectly functional and with plenty of hot water. We elected to stay on a bed and breakfast basis and we were not disappointed with this either. We were offered full English (bacon ,sausage,2 fried eggs,tomato,mushrooms and beans accompanied by toast and jams/marmalades and fruit juice and tea or coffee) OR continental breakfast ( Greek yoghurt with honey, cheeses slices,ham,croissant boiled egg, toast and marmalades, tea or coffee). You could also have a pick of any of the individual items and order it the night before for a certain time the next day and any time up to noon!!. No rush to get up early as there is no rush for the sunbeds of which there are plenty. The pool area is spacious and uncluttered and clean. The breakfast is priced in the menu at 6 euros each. The apartments are separated by a minor road between themselves and the rocky shoreline however the road only runs for a hundred yards to the rear of a couple of apartment blocks so there is little vehicular traffic.hence a very peacefull location. To the right you can see the entrance to the harbour which is only 5 minutes walk and where the small man made beach is which houses about 30 pairs of sunbeds and parasols. A further 5 minutes walk will take you to the other side of the harbour ,cutting through the Palm Bay hotel, where there are a good selection of tavernas and bars. There are a few tourist information centres which have car rentals starting at 30 euros a day, excursions and currency exchanges. The nearest supermarket is located about 300yds away, go up the side of the apartments to the next junction turn left and its about 40 yards from the junction on the right hand side. |Go a further 40 yards and you will come to the Knossos supermarket which sells a bigger range of goods including newspapers and has the bus stop outside. The bus runs once a day and not on Sunday. The bus times are on the bus stop and as I remember it comes at 0915hrs and travels to Hesonnisis and Aghias Nickolias. Back to the apartments,they are ran by a total of 4,Heleni and Vasilos who own the hotel, Jack the barmen and his mother Tassia who cleans and cooks. With only 17 apartments there is definatley a personal feel from all of the staff. All in all a great place to stay,for location peacefull but close enough to the resort centre. Great bar and sunsets. Good breakfasts,bar meals and evening meals.We got everything we expected and more. Cant fault the place at all. Air conditioning available at 6 euros a day but it was so quiet we slept with our shutters and windows open having taken the steps to reduce mosquito attacks and all we heard was the sea.!!!

Stayed at the Vasia beach hotel next door to these apartments last year.Liked the look of the Anixi and the welcome we got when we stopped for a cocktail was exceptional. So much so that we decided to return this year for a few days.This was a good decision. In fact we wished we had booked for longer but we had to move on to Chania after 4 days,

The apartments are good clean basic accommodation. They are not luxurious but are perfectly adequate for a relaxing holiday. They have fantastic sea views and the best sunset views in Sissi The pool area is lovely and never gets too busy. Sun beds are always available. The taverna serves great food and excellent cocktails. We had breakfast as part of our package and it was a fantastic start to the day. I would recommend it highly. However what raises Anixi above the ordinary is the exceptional, genuine friendliness of the staff. Eleni and the barman Jack were very friendly and helpful. Hector the dog also deserves a mention. All in all a brilliant place to stay. We will be back

At Anixi Apartments, Vassilis and Eleni make you feel right at home. We haven been coming here for 7 years now and every time we get the same feeling of "Home away from Home".

We fell in love not only with Crete and the lovely fishermen's village of Sissi, but also with Anixi Apartments from day 1. Anixi is the best place for couples who like to enjoy a romantic holiday and wish to stay away from the All Inclusive Resorts. All studio's are accessible through pitoresque stairs and have excellent sea view. They are thoroughly cleaned at least twice a week.

The bar serves snacks, small meals, delicious ice-cream and you can choose from over 80 cocktails, with different specials every night, and they also show important sports matches (e.g. football, rugby, Formula 1 etc).

We will be going back again as soon as possible but no later than next year for sure !

Wonderful family business run by Vasilis and Eleni with crazy bartender Jack K and cleaning lady Tasia K (security by Hector) the apartments complex has 20 rooms all have seaview, the balcony's doesn't have the nasty plastic chairs or tables but very nice wooden ones. inside is everything available from toiletpaper to cutlery.
We have been coming here for 7 years and still not bored.
Eleni along with Tasia makes the most delicious meals and Vassilis and crazy bartender Jack K entertain you during the evening with "dangerous" cocktails but very tasty.
The rooms are cleaned every two days, the view is formidable,at night you wil see the most beautiful sunset.
You are not bothered by cars or buses that are still driving along, occasionally a passing motorbike. the pool is kept clean by vassilis (i saw him vacuming it in the night when everybody sleeps)
We hate to have to leave it but know that we will return.
It is a perfect place for romantic couples, newlyweds, not really suitable for very young children but there are other accomodations for them in sisi.

Great place with great staff, beautiful food, cold beers and a killer sea view with biblical sunsets. Rooms are clean with sea-facing balconies to sleep by the sound of the lapping waves. The owners and bar-staff are genuinely friendly which always helps... you are on holiday after all !!! Stay away from bland chains and village killing all-inclusives, the personal touch wins every time!!
A personal shout out to Jack and Hector... or Jacktor as knew them!!
Really enjoyed this little place.. and we'll be back!!

we visited anixi bar every day during our stay. we were staying at the vasia beach hotel next door which was all inclusive but we wish we would have booked to stay at the Anixi apartments.
the food is great, the service is excellent and the view over the ocean is stunning. perfect way to unwind and relax. if we go back to crete, we will definitely stay here - you can see why people return every year.

The title says it all, this was my 9th year at Anixi, and you can bet the 10th is already booked. Every year is an adventure with Vasili, Eleni, Jack the Barman and Dasia, they always make us feel welcome, and my family love it, It has such an amazing atmosphere.
They are all friendly and helpful, the food and service is always consistently high and even when you fancy eating at the harbour, they will tell you the best places to go to.
The pool bar is chilled and relaxing, where you can just sit back and relax with a nice chilled drink, play some pool(billiards), listen to the music, maybe watch a little sport but more importantly, front row seats to the best view of the sunset from all over Sissi.
The rooms are cozy, with a nice quiet and relaxing feeling.The views are always amazing from the balconies, and a year hasn't gone by without leaving with some sort of holiday blues.
Amazing people, amazing times and amazing memories.
