We Cannot Say How Amazed We were By The Welocme We Recieved By This Family !!.
They are so caring and nothing to much trouble.They make sure you are fully happy with your room and have everything you needed.
The food was FANTASTIC , and drink prices are Excellent.
I would say everyone should try a taste of real greek hospitality.!!
Thanks for a great holiday and we will see you September .

just returned from a brilliant holiday spent at Sweet Memory Apartments. It was our first time in Crete and we were welcomed by Yan and his parents, the hospitality shown to us was outstanding the apartments were spotless thanks to Tanya, and great value. the apartments are central to all the beaches and shops.And you can look forward to Yan's fabulous buffet. we will most certainly return to stay with Yan and his family.

My friend and I enjoyed our stay at SMA. Its run by a warm, welcoming family. They do great food every night, catered mainly but with some homely touches. Yannis is approachable & around most of the time.
It's situated by the sea & agree that's it isnot a beach. Gouves is not as nice as say Ag. Nik, but we had what we wanted in a sunshine spot. There is access to a pool but it's certainly not next door. It's in another hotel, 200 yards down the road. The apartment was nice, clean with dated decor. We paid for a two bedroom but ended up sharing as there was a delay in the booking. We weren't offered a refund of the difference. Nice views of Dia & the ocean. We intended to cook but ended up eating out & picnicking. The self catering facilities were quite basic, with a portable hob, plastic plates, odd cutlery & one knife.
We enjoyed it very much, we would recommend it.

Location: the apartment is right by the sea. However separated by a busy road, and there isn't really a beach. There were a few nice beaches close by and a few nice places to eat.
Apartment: pretty average, had 2 single beds rather than a double, have to pay extra for air con.
The staff: not around very often and not as helpful as previous reviews have said. However put on a pretty good meal for all the guests one night while we were staying.

Apartment: Perfectly nice given the very low cost. Good standard of cleanliness and a nice hot shower (provided you get in once the sun has had chance to power the water heaters for a few hours!). Bed was firm but not unreasonable and the air conditioning controller is reasonably priced compared to reviews I've seen of other hotels.

People: English definitely is not the owners' strongest point, but it never really became a barrier. They are both very friendly and welcoming and the home cooked food on our final night was delicious.

Location: Located extremely close to the pebble beach (i.e. over the road). You can borrow sunbeds for free and if you wade for a few metres over the pebbles you eventually get to sand. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. 'Two Friends' (?) next door is well worth a visit if not just for the incredibly friendly proprietor. You absolutely must visit Mylos Taverna nearby, as it is by far the best restaurant we ate in all week. (Don't bother with the house Cretan wine though...)

My 17 year old son and I shared a spacious,clean.modern appartment at Sweet Memory for 2 weeks in August,it was lovely. The family that own and run these appartments,Michael,Koula,and their son Yannis,are genuinely friendly and kind people.When my son became unwell,Koula even cooked him her homemade chicken soup! I would highly reccomend that you stay here and nowhere else !! Lovely people,and now,friends.... . .as Arnie says.." I'll be BACK ! "
