i have been to kato gouves once before and enjoyed it very much, so we decided to return and stay at pella appartments this time, and what a brilliant choice it was, from day one the whole family made us feel very welcome, even after they had been working very very hard through the summer months , they still had time for us and always had a smile, we got to know ellani and stavros really well and they have had difficult times but they have hopefully got through that, and they will do anything for you if you just ask (politely). the food was great in their restuaraunt ,the appartments were clean and good value for the cost of the holiday, the complex was always clean and all the staff work very very hard. we will definetly return nxt year for longer holiday, this is not a lively nightclubbing place ,it is a lovely quiet chilled place where eveyone is friendly and make you feel welcome, the cost off eating out has not changed in 4 years due to the financial climate in greece, but they still make you feel welcome and always have time to chat with you, and the food is excellent eveywhere we ate out !! if you want a friendly clean quiet resort to stay try pella appartments, overall holiday was PERFECT ...thankyou ellana stavros and all the family including mikey the dog lol. see you very soon ..

We stayed at Pella apartments directly facing the unfinished buildings. We sat on the balcony every evening and did NOT see any bats or rats whatsoever!!

yes there are a lot of planes due to it being a large island airport but can honestly say it was not a problem

we found the apartments very spacious and the staff extremely friendly. cleaning staff gave you clean towels and sheets if you asked for them.

The staff especially Elenis and Stavros went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy

We stayed here 21 to 28 sept

Once again, we had a fantastic time at Pella. Eleni, Dimitri and the rest of the family were as friendly and helpful as always. Nothing was too much trouble. If you needed anything extra you only had to ask and it was done immediately. The apartments were immaculate and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. The bed linen and towels etc.. were pristine and changed regularly. The pool was kept very clean and the area around the pool was always clean, tidy and inviting. The Apartments have a very picturesque setting, you can sit in the Taverna or on your balcony and watch the beautiful sunset. Having stayed at many places over the years we can honestly say without hesitation that Pella Apartments is the only place we will stay in Crete. We have never had any problems of any kind. A HUGE thank you to everyone for making this holiday unforgettable. We admire and appreciate all the hard work you put into making each and every guest feel like they are in paradise.

Room Tip: Every room is great. Each apartment has everything you could need or want

I support the oppinion of "greecelovers".
There is air corridor above the appartment: every 10 minutes an airplane!! Terrible noisy!!!
The unfinished buildings are full of bats, so at night is not advisable to go out on the balcony or open the windows. Among the appartman builings many rats running around. The apartment for 4 person has a small wardrobe where two people can only scanty clothes fit. Cutlery, plates are only for 3 people. Not enough place of the room or the balcony to sit down for 4 people together at the same time. So little space!!!!!
The shower drain blockaged. They were unwilling to solve, so we could not take a bath. Hot water is not guaranteed ! The trash cans are emptied only ones per a week. Constant stench was in the apartment!!! A lot of catchy ran on floor. The two bed linen was replaced after 3 days, the others did not. Replace the towels completely rhapsodic .
Elena, the manager were very unfriendly with my kids. They would not let them use the pool because she were afraid of the guests retired to the poolside apartments ( why did not they gave it to us?) Elena shouted with us on the yard, because of kids (3 and 6 years old). IT IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Good room is not in GOUVES, because of airplanes noisy.

I write to refute in their entirety the points made by this reviewer.Following complaints about noist, unruly behaviour from the children, and general lack of parental control, other guests had to be re-located. I had no direct contact with the children, but had to speak firmly to the parents about the children's dangerous behaviour in and around the swimming-pool.This was a hazard for them and other guests. We have always welcomed families with children, as reviews over the years will confirm. Although checkout time is 12 noon, I gave this family 4 extra hours in the appartment without them having to ask, and without levying the normal supplement.
The appartment where this family stayed is situated in the garden area, with lawn and playground. We certainly have no rodents in our buildings, which are regularly inspected by Health and Safety professionals in line with normal European guidelines.
These clients made no complaints during their stay.
We take pride in the our standards of cleanliness and hospitality, and can only express our amazement at this review.

Just returned from a week at the Pella Apartments, what a fantastic place. We were on a late flight meaning we did not get to Gouves till after midnight, there to greet us was Eleni and Stavros. With smiling faces and a greeting as if we were long last relatives we new then this was the place to be. After putting our cases in the room we were invited to have a drink, nothing was too much trouble even when I cheekily asked if they had another room with a sea view and sure enough Eleni went about her business and found one. The location cannot be bettered from sitting in the Taverna itself to the front of the building you have a fantastic view of the sea. Sit in the comfy chairs watch the world go by and just look out at see whilst enjoying a snack, meal (see our restaurant review) or just a drink, always followed by the complimentary shot before bed. The rooms are basic, DON'T BE PUT OFF. you have everything you need, balcony, kitchen, bathroom, table and chairs beds. If you want anything changing, towels, bedding, just ask, don't moan. The swimming pool is quiet and clean in a secluded part of the complex, an ideal sun trap. From the Pella walk either way and you are central to shops tavernas and plenty of car, scooter, quad hire, and its not expensive. This is definitely not an 18 - 30 resort with discos, although we found one, its a place to relax soak up the sun on the handy beaches and enjoy Creton life, it is good. For a family run business including the very handy supermarket attached you must congratulate them for such friendliness. Thank you Eleni, Stavros and Mickey, you'll have to visit to find out who Mickey is and its definitely worth going. WE'LL BE BACK.

Room Tip: All room appear similar with easy access

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Pella. This was our 5th visit and every heat it never fails to impress. It is in a great location and handy for everything you need with a fantastic beach within a short walking distance. The family are all very friendly and can't do enough for you. I would strongly recommend staying here to anyone thinking of going to Crete.
