A friendly family hotel with a very nice and friendly staff. Maria's cooking was excellent and the portions over the size I was used to have in my previous holidays around Crete island. A place I positive recommend it to everyone.

when I read some of the reviews I wonder whether the reviewers have actually been to the same place! We have stayed at the Ideal nine times in 5 years and many of the guests we meet at least annually beat that by a mile - which says something! The apartments are clean, comfortable and traditional with TV, wifi, hairdryers... More

Returned for a third visit and was welcomed back like an old friend (even at 3.30 am). The rooms are well stocked with crockery and cutlery and it would be very easy to cook and eat in but the restaurant is so good that it would be foolish to miss the food there. We saw lots of people returning from... More

We were greeted very early morning which was friendly as always in Greece. Our room was really nice, comfortable and clean, waking up the next morning things began to unveil themselves. By 8am all the sunbeds around the pool we're reserved with towels but not a person in sight until well after 10am. The pool is quite small and has... More
