A beautiful small family-run hotel with great sea views, nice appartements, a quiet clean pool, small kids playground, table tennis and a quiet small beach just across the road. If you need more action, a busier sandy beach is only a short walk away. Should you not want to prepare your own breakfast the arrangement is that you can take...

We stayed at Iliostasi Apartments for 11 nights & would echo the compliments of previous reviews. We were there in peak season (early August) and have never had a more enjoyable and relaxing stay anywhere. Our daughters (18, 15 & 14) thought it was perfect. Pool plus wifi = all smiles & led to parental relaxation... The location is right...

Our hopes were initially dashed on arrival when we were told our room was not available for 5 days due to over booking and that an alternative'superior' 4 star accommodation had been arranged. Far from superior and not suitable for our girls of 11 and 12 we chose to spend one night there only - to be be fair to...

Excellent for quiet family stays. This apartment hotel is on the edge of Hersonissos, away from busy main street but still close enough to number of taverns in walking distance. There was lovely small sandy beach just across the street, almost deserted, sometimes we're only ones there. Bigger sandy beach was 5 minutes by walk. For those who don't appreciate...

I have just returned from the most tranquil week at these fabulous apartments. This was my second vist to the beautiful island of crete & it was a much needed time to think. Iliostasi's fabulous location really does lend to this with being less than a 2 minute walk to a secluded beach & being on such a peaceful area....

We had an amazing two week holiday thanks to the hospitality and generosity of Yiannis, Maria and their children who made us feel part of their family. They were really helpful when our 10 year old daughter became ill phoning the doctor for us and asking regularly how she was feeling. Their children included ours in games etc and were...

We stayed in this lovely little hotel with our family of 5. The place is perfect. Sea is near with the very good sandy beach near by, the citys noise can be heard but it does not bother.

We've just come back from a 6 day amazing stay at iliostasi apartments. Loved the traditional style of the apartment, had everything we needed. The pool was well kept and was pretty quiet during our stay. The beach was just 5 mins walk away and handy supermarket just 10mins walk. We also visited stalis beach which was about a 20min...

The couple who run the Iliostasi are indeed very welcoming and friendly and the location is excellent. We enjoyed many evenings strolling along the beach opposite the apartments which may as well be private as it was always quite when we would visit. There are many great places to eat although I would avoid the main strip if possible and...
