“Absolutely fantastic!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

This is the second time I've been to Crete in 30 years. I should have come here first for the fantastic hospitality shown to myself and my family by Costas the owner and Lefteris the Bar Manager.
Nothing is too much trouble for these guys. They speak great English and really look after you. The rooms are so clean and the maids have the finishing touch by creating fantastic sculptures of swans, flowers and butterflies with the towels on your bed!

Costas doesn't employ a gardner. He is so passionate about his grounds and garden he does it all by himself. You will see him most days with his wheelbarrow, weeding the borders, cutting the lawn and looking after his plants for our pleasure.

Costas and Lefteris (everybody calls him Lefty) put on a Greek BBQ night every week. Make sure you go to it. The food and entertainment are well worth the 'All you can eat' adult price of €17.

If your by the pool (which is very clean and we'll maintained) and you come to the bar for refreshment, Lefty will send you straight back to your sunbeds, take your order and serve you personally. He doesn't do it for a tip! He does it because he wants to make you feel special and he really wants you to relax and enjoy yourself. In fact it's quite hard to tip him as you have to be so persistent to make him take it!

Lefty is so knowledgable about everything! If your not sure what you want for your evening meal in the town, he will tell you the best restaurants for fish, or the best place for something traditional.

Greeks are very much family orientated which still translates to your families. You will be so well looked after at the Merabello!

I found it a very positive experience at the Merabello and I was struggling to find a negative to balance it up, but I couldn't !

Thanks for taking the trouble to read this!

Room Tip: Room 10 was good as we had an extra large balcony which was sun-drenched in the evening.

Second time we have visited these spots.
With three children its hard to keep them busy and happy.
Mirobello is fab for us all.
The pool is always clean and sunbeds are always available.
The villa no 4 was just right clean,comforttable.we ate out most of the time as prices around the town were great not too expensive.
This is truly a most relaxing holiday,as Leftie says you are a guest not a customer!
Would love to be back so pretty and relaxing.
Keep up the good work.

Well we booked this holiday only 6 weeks before we travelled and wasn't really sure what to expect. Omg we were so chuffed with everything and everyone at the apartments despite the 5 hour flight delay with small planet. Leftaris and Costa the owner are so lovely and they made our holiday. They are both very knowledgable about West Crete. If you want to hire a car speak to Lefteris rather than go through Olympic, we had a weekend special which was supposed to be for 3days, we got the car at 9am on the Monday and had to return it for 7pm on the weds, this was 2 & half days not the 3 we were told, our fault we didn't question it at the time, but be aware. There is a fabulous BBQ and Greek night on a Saturday night for 17€ which we thought was very good value. The apartments themselves are spacious and spotless, we couldn't fault anything, they are a credit to Costas. The pool area and garden is perfectly kept and a lovely relaxing place to be. If you can't be bothered to go out Lefteris is a cracking cook and aims to please every time, we spent a few enjoyable evenings a rouge the pool bar chatting and relaxing with him, what a smashing guy. The resort is quite lively with something for everyone how ever old you are, the lively resort is downhill from the apartment and the old village is uphill, we spent most of our evenings there in the most charming taverna manolis, and greeted by the most charming host yannis. The food is to die for, as is the raki following your meal! I cannot fault these apartments, thank you Costa and Lefty, we will be back :-) xxxx

Room Tip: All rooms in the main building have pool and sea views, can't go wrong which ever room you get.

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Mirabello Apartments. The room had the best views that over looked the pool /bar and sea views room 7. The Mirabello Apartments are looked after by Kosta who takes in pride in all the rooms and even sees to the cleaning on change over day. This holiday was made even better by meeting Lefteris (Lefty) to friends.This guy is the life and soul to the party especially on BBQ night. I give the apartments 10/10 for cleaning , location and management.The bar I also give 10/10 and cant really but a price on Lefty and his entertainment.

Room Tip: Room 7 best views and gets the sun late afternoon

The Mirabello apartments has to be one of the most welcoming places you will ever visit. Everyone is very friendly and nothing is to much trouble. The place is spotless and clean and very well maintained. Don't expect to much with regards to the cooking facilities within the apartments as these are basic, but all work well. Both the food at the pool bar and the local restaurants are very good and who wants to cook on holiday so the cooking facilities shouldn't cause any difficulties.
The way the place is run by Costas and Leftie makes everyone's holiday special with a real family feel through out the resort. Its well worth doing the Saturday barbecue night as this is a super night which allows everyone to get to know everyone and get a taste of the local food and traditional dancing.
The views are nice from the apartments and its only a couple of minutes walk down the hill to both the beach and restaurants.
We cant wait to revisit in the future.

Having stayed here for a week in mid July my wife and I cannot praise these apartments enough. As you walk through the door you are greeted with a really good sized room leading onto large balcony with great views of the pool lawned gardens and onwards to the sea ..Stunning. Rooms well equipped kettle- coffee maker- fridge etc beds really comfy bathroom perfectly adequate and always plenty of hot water and spotlessly clean. Lovely pool area with more than enough beds for guests around pool and the lawn. Made to feel very welcome by all the staff who try their best to make your stay enjoyable. Resort has plenty to do with a really frequent bus service into Chania which as many people who love Crete as we do will tell you is a beautiful town to spend time visiting. Beach is lovely wide stretch of sand with warm shallow sea ideal for children. We only ate at three restaurants for the week our favourite being Raki Restaurant just 400 yards away food was lovely here with copious amounts of raki being served gratis byYannis who is a really nice and friendly lad always got a smile on his face . All in all we had a great break in nice resort staying in great apts what more can you ask for ?. Already booked again for 2 weeks next year .

Room Tip: We had room 4 but all other rooms have same views so no problem.

Just returned from a fantastic week at the Mirabello Apartments. spotlessly clean apartments with a beautiful view of the gardens/pool and the sea. We enjoyed the fantastic hospitality that is offered in this resort. We were looked after by Lefteris, the bar manager and Costa the owner. The restaurants in the old town are super and they welcome you with open arms food and raki ( lots of it ). The best one for us was taverna Horiatiki Gonia, Horiatiko same name nearly but different taverna ( next door to one another )and Olivi all in the old town .We had a fantastic time and we will visit again. Thank to all that helped Jack and I have the perfect week.

Room Tip: room 1 lookes over the pool with a view of the sea
