“excellent service, great view , nice pool”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

stayed for 4 nights at the stone suit, no view but nice little balcony, the room is basic but well maintained and clean, the staff is great, extremely friendly. the highlight was the sea water pool which has great view over the sea.
the only downside in my stay was the breakfast which was very basic. one type of cereal, mild cafe and not so tasty pastries.
the location otself is far from the beach, renting a car is advised.

Really enjoyed the stay in the apartment in this hotel. Big rooms with kitchen, balcony - terases with great view on teh See. Good aer. By the car 5 min to the sea, but much more enjoyed the big pool with salted water. Quiet place with not so much neighbours, so we really enjoyed our stay like a couple.
Very good kitchen - realy good breakfasts. Can stay for houres. Nice and friendly stuff. Good music in the backround. Good fitness room (we used every day) - some of the pieces not working well. Consierge very helpfull.

Room Tip: like more the apartmens in the base.

Everything its great at Happy Cretan!!!
We stay 7 beautiful nights and we were the happiest tourists. The Chef, Mr.Giannis, its the best - he cooked excellent. In every evening he surprised us with a very tasty traditional Greek food. Also, many thanks to Mrs. Manias, Aspa, Dimitris and all the staff, because they managed to do our stay super! (a 5*vacation). The location is very quiet and has a splendid view to the sea.
The pool is very large, the superior suite with sea view is quite large, very clean, we had 2 balcony and free parking +free WIFI.
You guys "are the best" ;)

Room Tip: Choose the Superior Suite with Sea View (2 adults) and you'll never regret it!

Demetrios and Aspa Absolutely Outstanding members of staff who do everything to ensure that your stay at The Happy Cretan will be truly memorable. We love you guys!
If you like peace and quiet away from mass Tourism Agia Pelagia is the place. Totally unspoilt Crete as it should be. Authentic Tavernas serving real Greek food. No Burgers No Fish and Chips No bars showing football ! Oh Joy Oh Bliss!
Fabulous views Cretan sunsets 3 small beaches close by and a lovely small town Agia Pelagia with shops Tavernas and a supermarket.
Yes you do need a car or taxis to go up and down the steep hill 6 euros each way .
Our apartments were spotlessly clean, the hotel food lovely, lovely sea water pool and exceptional staff.

After an extensive search in Internet, we finally chose Happy Cretan for a stay of one week in July. We have been very happy, the location is really wonderful, quiet like few places in Crete and a beatiful setting, just overlooking the sea from above. The only drawback is that you have to take your car to go anywhere else, also to the beach. The closest beaches are Agia Pelagia and to Mononafti, both very nice sea but tiny ones and not very clean (seems to be standard in Crete not to remove rubbish left on the beaches). But better ones are not so far away with the car.
The staff at Happy Cretan is extremely friendly and supportive, also with the kids. Our 4-old twins loved the small swimming pool, and the large one is very good, too. Every day there was something new and different for breakfast.
We booked a renewed apartment, without kitchen, and everything was nice and clean.
Definitely a place to recommend.
