well what can i say ,cardiac hill and i am only 40, you get dropped off at the bottom of the hill then your luggage is taken up,and you have to walk 200 metres up the hill.we found the apartments clean but basic,staff friendly, but if you expect to sleep on a night forget it ,there are lots of cockerals that crow all day and night and dogs barking constantly.the owner did offer to move us but we stuck it out,even though i did have to stop my three teenage boys buying a catapolt.the food was awful,over priced and burnt.they have a greek night once a week but its 16 euros each far too expensive.we hired a car for the week which was excellent so we only slept at the mythos and travelled the full length of crete for the week i wouldnot reccomend these apartments for anyone.

Don't know how these apartments got bad reviews, we found them to be very clean (the maid came 6 days a week), bedding and towels changed every third day, apartments modern and plenty big enough. Panos the owner and other staff very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble, food and drinks cheapest in the resort. The 'hill' was easy to walk up and down, maybe the complainers should question their own 'fitness'. Is it not suitable for people with walking difficulties (but this is pointed out in the brochure and on the internet). There are things to do for children in the resort if you walked up or down the main street. The beach was great and would recommend Gregory's Bar, for a small price of 6 Euros to hire 2 sun loungers and umbrella (for a whole day) you can use their lovely pool on the beach. Their prices for food and drinks also very good. Would also recommend eating at any of taverners in the old village of Platanias, didn't have one bad meal and the views are spectacular. Great holiday, apartment and resort.

We have just got back from staying at the Mythos apartments. The hill isn't as bad as some people make out and the rooms were lovely and clean. Panos the owner is a great bloke who made us feel very welcome and was always happy to help! The beach isn't too far and there are plenty of tavernas with pool and games for kids. It's very friendly and there were always plenty of sunbeds available. The food is good there..but for somthing special try the many tavernas along the same road the Mythos is on they are better than eating at the bottom of the hill although it was still nice down there. We usually go to a different country each year...but we are going back next year (earlier if I can afford it) as we loved it so much. If you can't cope with a bit of a hill then this isn't for you...but if you don't mind an uphill walk now and again then go for it!

The hill you get use too ,everything else was horrible.
Where do i start ,we were charged 3 different prices for the same two drinks,charged 15 euro for two burgers that should of been 9 and when we pointed this out all hell broke loose.
The apartment was dirty especially the bathroom ,the toilet seat was cracked and had not been cleaned for a long time ,until we pointed it out.
the sheets were full of holes or patched up and were only changed twice in two weeks.
The owner ,who was supposed to be the best host ever was quite the opposite and was only interested in making money,
This hotel was on a busy walk way and yet attracted no passing trade ( i wonder why)
We would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone and i will be writing to thompson, to air my views.
A HOTEL TO AVOID .
