Rooms were clean, breakfast was good and the service extended longer than official times were. Flexible and gentle are key words. Its a peaceful place /hotel/apartments to...

Another excellent stay at our favorite place in Crete. Great location, fantastic people and very friendly atmosphere. The hotel and rooms are nice and clean, the grounds great and possibly the best pool in Crete! We will definitely be back.

Stayed here for a couple of nights on my last visit to Crete. This was the second time I stayed with the hotel and found it even better than before after staying at other places in Crete. Hotel facilities are very nice and well maintained, very friendly and helpful hosts, (clean) appartments feature everything one needs (good beds, seating, balcony,...

If you want to escape from the crowds at the coastline, Areti is the place to go! We spent half a week at a resort just by Platanias, we enjoyed it a lot - but it was pure mindfulness to arrive Areti late in the evening after four days of resorting. It is quiet, charming, clean, picture perfect and the...

Stayed here for a total of 4 nights at the beginning of October and was very satisfied with my stay. Hotel itself is nicely set up next so some mountains but with sea view. My "Studio" was fully equipped and spacious and (sufficiently, when not spotlessly) clean. Breakfast and pool area very nice, minor drawback was WLAN did not work...

We came back from our vacation about few weeks ago, and we loved everything about our stay. Very welcomed atmosphere made us miss that place same day we left. The staff is very caring and helpful. Every morning we were enjoying delicious breakfast, which could satisfy any appetite (that include very picky eaters kids!). Moreover, they have the best Greek...

My fiancee and I decided to escape to Crete and had just three days to decide the place. We were very lucky. We stayed at Areti Hotel in a studio with a nice sea view. Even when it is not in the beach, it only takes 20 minutes to get Kalami and other little villages where you can enjoy the...
