The apartments are basic but have everything you would need and expect. If you ask for a quiet room you will be positioned on the back as we were and have a good night`s sleep. The beach is a short level walk away and nice and quiet. Christina is a delightful lady with good English. Plenty of very good family-run... More

First visited 12 years ago. Went back last year, pool.had been extended. Apartments basic but clean and staff couldn't be more helpful. Excellent breakfasts and snacks at poolbar Returned this year. Central position in village, shops and tavernas close.and convenient and short walk to beach. Easy short bus journey to Rethymnon. Will happily go back. Many visitors are returnees.

We have just come home from Crete and cannot wait to go back. Christina apartments are basic but functional. We had everything we needed. No problems with the shower or hot water. Nikos and Kostas cannot do enough for you and make you feel like family. We were welcomed by Chris at the bar and enjoyed complementary drinks on arrival.... More

The staff couldn't be faulted - very friendly and helpful. Nikos provided me with a hand drawn map and advice on local walks to nearby villages. The location is good for getting to both sides of the island by car or taking trips. There's also plenty of shops and restaurants nearby as well as being very close to the stunning... More

Guests return year after year and although it was our first year we will definitely be back!! Brothers Kostos and Nikos and Christina are the most amazing hosts to all their guests. Mama and papas BBQ night served the... More

This is one of the best holidays I have had and that is mainly the friendliness of the place. I agree with the realistic review you get what you pay for. It is not perfect but well worth the visit and would probably stay again. I saw spirits being poured into named bottles but this was his Raki and was... More
