We stayed at Spiros-Soula for our first 2 nights of our holiday in Crete. We arrived in the middle of the night and had no trouble finding the place with the directions given. We were glad to be out of the city and woke up to beautiful surroundings. We were given excellent suggestions for swimming and hiking ideas and the food was great. We could have spent more time here if we were not otherwise booked in other areas of Crete. No complaints!

We originally booked the Spiros-Soula Hotel for 1 night as a stop over on our trip throughout Crete. Once we found our way we were pleasantly surprised how beautiful the hotel and the location was. It was away from any busy roads, had a great view from the room and the pool/ lounge area was wonderful. The whole Spiros-Soula family was so friendly and took really good care of us and made us feel truly welcome. We were sad to leave the next morning and wished we could have stayed longer (if we hadn't prebooked other hotels we would have). The room was clean, the bathroom and shower was huge compared to other hotels we've stayed in, and our stay was relaxing. The breakfast was 5 Euro and it was cooked to order by Mrs. Spiros-Soula. The greek yoghurt was the best! Highly recommend this hotel for a realxing vacation.

Room Tip: don't use google maps to find your way to the hotel, it is too confusing. make sure to follow d...

The hotel located away from the noise and crowness of the big cities hotels in Crete. It is the perfect place for quite, worm, and with great hospitality - relaxing vacation spot. Within few hundred meter downhill we found amazing beachs (Made and Ligaria) with turquoise and clean water, while from the balcony of the room we had the entire area just in from of us. The Spiros-Soula family (Jianis, Jiorgas, Agnes and the perents) are friendly, worm, and helpfull with any request we had (food, place, ride, etc). The hotel is well maintained, clean and with great herb garden to use (we actually picked for the tea). Room equipped with some kitchen staff and refrigirator. Food in the bar was great, and we got some taste of Crete tradishinal plates on top of great Pizza!

Thank you - We will be back.

Room Tip: The upper floor rooms will gives you spctacular view, while the pool level will give you the easy ac...

We spent in this place wonderful holidays.Two weeks in October with sun, blue sky and over 30 degree. We wanted to relax in a quiet and beautiful place and exactly this we got in Spiros-Soula Apartments.The owners' family creates unique atmosphere in this place. Everybody is very friendly and helpful. We had wonderful evenings sitting next to the pool, drinking some nice cocktails and talking about everyday life in Greece and not only... I have to mention the extaordinary food which is served in taverna. Everything fresh and handmade from local ingredients, especially dolmades made by Mrs. Soula. You have to try it, when you will be there! What was important for us is the distance to airport, you can get there within 15minutes, so you don't loose time for a long transfer. Apartments are located just in the middle of Crete so you have the best opportunity to see both, the West and the East part of the island.
For sure next year I will come back there to see the rest of the island and to meet the owners.

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.

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!
