This is a really fab hotel. The manager and his family who own it were exceedingly helpful and accommodating, lending a hand with tourist information and providing good conversation . Though the rooms weren't massive, they were comfortable (as rooms can be at 35 degrees C) and came with a decent sized kitchen and clean bathroom. There is a pool, which is dredged for pesky bugs every day and a well lit bar.

The food on offer was tasty and prepared quickly. In addition the hotel is definitely in a good spot, some 5 minute walk from the beach, with a local butcher and baker nearby (as well as a mini-mart). If you are going to Ag Palag, then try and see if you can get a room at Hotel Amazonas!

The apartments is run by a friendly family and is situated in a quiet area of the hill side which is about 3 minutes walk to the beach. It was a little difficult for me and my friend to find the entrance (few steps down from side of Amazona resrtanrant bar, which is standing along the street, and go behind the building through the gate to the apartments). Although we arrived early enough time, the owner found us looking for the entrance standing in front of the restaurant bar and guided us to the room. The restaurant bar is run by the owner's daughter and her Swiss husband who speaks English and German (also Greek and possibly more?). There is a small pool is in between those two buildings, and a nice garden in front of the apartments. There is no reception and the notice in the room was asking us to visit the restaurant bar if necessary. We had booked a studio but the owner let us stay in an apartment for the whole one week stay without any extra fee so we could have one room each! I would like to recommend this place for people who prefer to have a quiet place.

We stayed here in Amazonas apparements for a week at the end of June 08 and the place really was fantastic.

The rooms are basic but clean and had absolutely everything we would need for a stay there . The appartments are located about 200 meters from the beach which was brilliant and the hotels own pool is clean and very nice.

The owners too were really friendly people and really made the effort to make us feel at home. Maria's cooking is excellent - the Moussaka is defintately not to be missed! and Felix's cocktails are not to bad either! Although really close to the beach the place is set far enough back that it's quiet.

We had an absolutely fantastic time in Agia Palagia and I really would throughly recommend these appartments as somewere to stay.

Agia Palagia itself has a nice beach (but it did get busy at the weekend as the locals from Heraklion go there - mind you this is always a good sign I guess !) There;s about 20 -30 small tavernas right on the edge of the beach with decent food and watching the sun go down over the sea with a beer or two is a must!

We didn't see anything about the amazonas appartments on the internet before we went so were determined to write a review for this when we got back to show how nice the place is!

Room Tip: Les chambres 16 et 1 sont les plus calmes, mais en général, elles le sont toutes.
