Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic holiday in great apartments, Manos and George cannot do enough for you, all the family and people that work there really do make it.
It’s right on the sea front with an amazing beach 5mins walk, centre of town is 40min walk but 10min cheap taxi ride. Olga Taverna is 5 min walk and is great food. Would stay again, thanks again to all the staff, owners and family.

We went very early in the season so it was very quiet. Our apartment was spotlessly clean with a stunning view that I would never tire of. It's out of the way so a car is pretty essential unless you want a long walk or just intend staying at the resort/pool all the time.

I went in April - and had an excellent stay in these lovely, clean, scenic apartments.
Service was excellent. 1hr from the Airport, the manager and his wife & family were hugely welcoming, very likeable and their service was excellent.
We went pre-season and enjoyed the whole place to ourselves. Stunning views, peaceful area and off the beaten track.
We ventured to Agios (busy busy place), Elounda which is a gorgeous Cretan port, a bus trip away 2.5 Euros single, taxi was 14 Euros - single. Its well worth a visit for the fantastic open restaurants and array of nice shops around this small town, with a beach and harbour.
We were self catering at Havania, but shopped in Agios (no shops nearby Havania). Our apartment (Room 1) had everything needed to make meals, snacks, filter coffee. Views were excellent from the front (sea view) and side (olive garden) windows. Our veranda got sun all day/night. Bed was v comfortable, decoration was lovely. Shower, bathroom all 100% functional. Free wi-fi (it worked), free use of TV in room.
Pool and outside area was so pretty and very well kept. Quality loungers too, and a gorgeous area to sunbathe next to the sea. Lovely beach was minutes walk away. A real taste of Crete was what we came away with. We had no complaints and recommend to anyone seeking a high standard of service and venue in this area to book Havania (1st floor apartment!).

We arrived at 03.30 in the morning to find reception closed and the lobby in complete darkness fumbled about trying to find light switch to no avail sat there outside for 3.5 hours no answer on hotel number just ringing out when daylight finally came went once more to lobby to find a notice board with our room numbers on great idea if you haven't got 24 hour reception but without any lighting at all in lobby rather hard to find, travelling with mum 68 years no apology from owners just blaming travel company not bad apartments but after that start wouldn't bother going back

Stayed here 2 weeks with family and friends 5 rooms. I have been going to agios nicoloas for 17 yrs every year and stayed at a number of different apartments these are by far the best self catering I have stayed at. The reasons. Firstly this is a totally family run hotel/ apartments Katrina and George , manolis and Patricia are outstanding such lovely genuine people. Their son Joseph turned my 12 yr old son Greek fishing, kayaking setting fish traps and camping out. The facilities at the apartments are bar. To when you are finished drinking. Pool cleaned daily. Rooms cleaned and attended to daily.

They do Bbq nights and pork in wood fired ovens plus breakfast and food throughout the day and evening all at great value. All cooked by the family.
You have the best if both pool and beach straight off the pontoon into the sea.

I can not speak more highly of Havania Apartments. I will be booking to return within the next few weeks. Only been home 12 hours and missing the apartments and family already.
See you next year guys love to you all

Three days was just not enough for this outstanding place. The family who own it could not be more attentive, hardworking or friendly if they tried. Home cooked food, clean and spacious rooms, all topped off with the most spectacular views! Heaven on Earth and extremely highly recommended for everyone who appreciates peace and tranquility.

We had a wonderful time at Havania Apartments. The apartments, although basic, were cleaned every day along with clean sheets and towels. The sea and mountain views from the apartments were fantastic. There was a bar and restaurant in site which served excellent meals. (Try the pork cooked in the wood oven, absolutely delicious.) The swimming pool was well maintained and you could also swim off the pontoon. The owners were friendly and helpful. All in all, really good value.
The walk into Aghios Nikolaos is a good 30 minutes but there is a bus stop very close and there are regular buses which takes you into town.
Looking forward to going again.

We were misleaded by quite nice reviews about these apartments while looking for a place to stay in Elounda region. When we arrived we were surprised by quite shabby place. All the things here seems to be old or broken. Jacuzzi not working, extra bed for child - broken. Waiting for a meals takes hours as only one old lady working at the kitchen. We could not even cancel the booking and leave earlier from this shabby place as owner requested all stay cancellation fee. At the pictures you can see nice sea shore but beware not for safe use for children - it is steep and deep directly to the see steps.
Place good for budget travellers but not for those who look at least for minimum comfort and esthetic place for vacation. Same price we lived in Lofos village on the other side of Island, and we were surprised how clean nice and lovely place can be while charging same money for night for apartment.

We had to leave our booked accommodation as it was so awful and found this lovely hotel. It is family run and bright clean and cheerful. Our room was at the front and the view was fabulous. We were only there for a week but wished it was longer, other guests return every year and we definitely will
The owner is called George and we feel as if we've made a friend.
