We arrived late at night at the Sweet Memory Apartments to a very warm welcome. Yannis, the manager instantly made us feel at home. He and his family were very hospitable, friendly and delightful people. The apartments are located directly across the road from the sea, which is perfect for dining al fresco. Even though we came out of season (mid April) we really really enjoyed our stay here. We would definitely come back again later in the year when the season is in full swing. Overall, it is a really fantastic place, with great people, great food and a great atmosphere.

Room Tip: Wherever you stay its nice, plus you have access to several rooftops to subathe.

We enjoyed our time at Sweet Memory. Yanni and his wonderful parents are very welcoming and the accommodation was basic but more than adequate. The apartments are situated on a main road opposite the sea which is a huge plus whilst sipping a nice cuppa in the morning :) We went slightly out of season (beginning/mid April) which was extremely peaceful and relaxing. I definitely recommend Sweet Memory and plan on visiting again in the near future.

Despite arriving late and to discover our accommodation was cancelled by our tour operator, the manager, Yannis handled it smoothly ! He offered us a drink whilst he got a room ready for us. Straight away we knew we would have a fantastic stay here. Honestly, the hospitality is incredible. Yannis and his family make you SO welcome and it really feels like visiting family on holiday. The home cooked FRESH food is made by the wonderful Mamma and Yannis makes THE best mussell risotto and a tomato pasta! The room was more than ample for our family, cleaned daily and fresh towels too! We hated leaving and would DEFINATELY recommend this little gem to our friends. We are planning a return visit. We already miss Sweet Memory and the wonderful Yannis (NO PROBLEM, SIMPLES, EASY PEASY), Mamma and staff. You will not be disappointed visiting here. σας ευχαριστώ για μια υπέροχη στιγμή !!!!The Temples

We stayed here for 2 weeks in September. We have stayed in many places in Greece over the years and Sweet Memory Apartments are by far the best we have stayed in. We turned up late at night, to a very warm welcome from Yanni, who made us feel at home straight away, he showed us to our room, which was very clean and invited us for drink on him, which we did and he introduced us to some of the other guests, which was nice as they turned out to be lovely people and from then on the holiday just got better and better.......................the apartment was cleaned regularly and very spacious, the food on offer was lovely and fresh every night, mamma even adding her specail meals from time to time, cooking the best Moussaka we have ever had!!
We were made to feel part of the family and meet some great people (this place seems to attract the best people), who we are keeping in touch with and hope to meet at Sweet Memories next year.
So a big thank you to Yanni and his mum and dad for a fantastic holiday. See you all next year.

From the first minute we arrived to the last nothing was to much trouble for Yannis or his parents making you feel really special.The apartment was perfect for the short time spent in it!! & was cleaned with fresh towels/linen every day,there was enough food on offer for a good breakfast & the selection of food for evening meal was very good plenty of variety & being buffet style numerous visits were allowed!! All in all a very nice weeks holiday made better by the wonderful people would highly recommend!

Well what can we say. We arrived just after midnight and the Manager Yannis showed us to our room, asked if we would like to join him and other guests for a night cap this of course was free. Infact we had several drinks that Yanni wuld not allow us to pay for. Back to the room No23 which i must say was large with a good open plan living area,which would accommodation another two guests, kitchen table and chairs lovely kitchen preparation area equipt with all you need for self catering.Kettle, toaster, 2 hob burner,full size CLEAN fridge, nice quality pots anyway enough of that because when you see the buffet they put on each evening there is no way you will want to self cater. The food was so delicious i am not even going to bother describing the choice and taste just believe me when i say its truely greek authentic and delicious. i am probably the worst when it comes to food because i love to cook and eat out and the food really was exquiste thanks Mama Koula(Yannis's Mum). The main bedroom is separate to living area which was nice to have a shut off room. Single beds, but matresses clean and firm. Excellent white linen changed regularly. Bathroom good size with shower and again a lovely clean shower curtain and a shower with power to it.
Oh year evening meal cost 10 euros and included starter salads at least 5 choices and a choice of at least 8 main meals also fresh fruit and cakes, believe me the price of 10 euros really is cracking value.
We ate out each luchtime and paid a minimum of 26 euros and that was usually a greek salad and gyros or pizza and 2 beers. This family was an absolute wonderful family to have shared our experience of Crete with. Nothing was ever a problem.
The location was great right on the beach front, having breakfast each morning looking out to sea was unforgetable.
You could walk a couple of minutes each way and find a nice sandy beach. Overall the resort is small, but lovely to be able to walk the coast line to other resorts which if you like to walk is lovely.
You will not be dissapointed if you book this lovely greek family run hotel.
Transfer times to airport 15 mins which is a bonus.
Once again thanks to the lovely family for a remarkable stay and for letting us in on a true piece of greek hospitality.
