We simply love this place! The family is really friendly, the location of the hotel is amazing. It's an ideal place for families with children, and for couples too.
It's only ~20 mins from the airport, nearly in the center of the island. Lygaria beach is very close to the hotel, it's beautiful (with a large rock looks like a monkey), and not full of people.
The food, made by the family using their own ingredients (olives, spices, etc.) is one of the best we've tasted in Crete.
It was the third time we were here (after 20 and 15 years), and we will come back for sure.

We have had a great holiday ....this family run place is something else ...nothing was trouble the food was Greek with an Italian edge ... My Nefew loved the pizza cooked in wood oven ... Where the cooket sunday roast, Greek moussaka, steaks and grill chicken ... The pull was clean and we spend most of the time drinking and swimming ... The near by beach was perfect but we always came back for lunch or dinner ...nothing was to much trouble ....we will defenatly go back

A little further from the typical noisy beaches full of plastic and pop music - there lies the place for those who need to party, but also - meet real people:)! First of all, after a walk of 15 minutes down the slope, you encounter the most perfect bay ("french beach") to swim and snorkle, with free bed chairs and life underneath the surface of crystallic, warm sea... Secondly - the food - we had the "breakfast and supper" option, which was a bullseye, since Mrs Soula cooks fantastic and Spiros prepares some of the food in a genuine wooden stove. What's more - all 2 weeks we bought olive oil, wine and raki (the spirit) - all three made by Spiros at home from his own products! So it was bread and olives and olive oil and tzatziki, washed down with the unpretentious wine (specific;). Heaven. Thirdly - the view and the breeze. Enjoyed from the cosy terrace of the property, or from our balcony - a feast for the senses. Even if we saw a bug in the garden - how a subequatorial country could live without them? The nature in Crete has one of the biggest endemic flora (yes:), so the bush-like terrain soon becomes really interesting. Fourthly - the car rental - we made some inquiries in Heraklio and at the end - took the SpirosandSoula offer:) It was maybe 10 euro more, but safe and with all insurance. And believe me - those roads are sometimes a bit like Corsica. Travelled to the furthest east, the south and a bit west with no problem. We also recommend a scooter (50cc, no licence).
Should I say more? Enjoy incredible hospitality from the Spiros and Soula Family!

My group of 4 stayed two nights at Spiros-Soula and wished we could have stayed much longer. From the moment we arrived the staff treated us like part of the family - they were laid back, very friendly and extremely helpful. The restaurant at the hotel has really good food at a shockingly reasonable price - it makes you never want to venture out to other parts of Crete! The rooms are clean and quaint with beautiful views and the hotel premises is simply gorgeous. I would highly recommend staying here!!!

We also had a cockroach on first day in our room. We've killed it and it was the last one.
The surrounding area was peacefull and beautifull. Food was tasty but meals was too small for us. We are talking about meals from B&B not those ordered the bar.
The hotel crew was fantastic and we spend romantic moments there.
One more thing : if you want to go there you must buy something for mosquitos - at nights there were many of them. Anyway go there and you will enjoy!!

I stayed at Spiros-Soula Apartments last summer with my friends. We had a beautiful view to the see, the room was comfortable and tidy.We loved the swimming pool and the bar is great as well. It is the best place to relax. :) I have traveled a lot in my life, but this was the best holiday I ever had. I am going to visit there this summer again.

My husband & I stayed @ Spiros-Soula the last 2 weeks in June. Having booked independantly we did not know what to expect as we only had a few reviews to go by. However, we were so pleased we chose to stay here. From the moment Jainnis collected us from the airport to taking us back 2 weeks later, we felt relaxed in these lovely family run apartments, typical cretan. Spiros must be complimented on his dedication to keeping the gardens looking beautful (his English is so much better than our Greek - always eager to learn new words and encouraging us to speak Greek!)
We can certainly recommend the home cooking prepared by Soula and Jainnis - delicious! The veiws from the Spiros-Soula are second to none - set high above the 3 bays of Made, Ligaria and Aghia Pelaghia. Although it is quite a way to these bays Jainnis, Jorgos or Spiros were always there to take us and other guests for a few euros in their mini bus. It is an ideal base for anyone wanting to tour the surrouding area. We hope to have another holiday here, maybe in a few years!
