“Great holiday - we'll be back”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We stayed at the Evevine in June this year and had a great time. The apartments are tucked away off the main road which is great. It only takes two minutes before you hit the main road, where you'll find lots of bars and restaurants.

The room we had was big, and ok, we didn't have a great view but it didn't bother us. Our view was of rough ground which had friendly goats grazing on it! The room had excellent air con (NOT CHARGED!!!) and also a safe (AGAIN NO CHARGE!!!). Big plus points as nothing worse than arriving and forking out an extra €70 for those type of things.

The pool area is excellent, never really busy so we go our sun loungers each day, about 10 feet from the covered pool bar. We got the know the bar men really well with Vasilis sorting us out during the day and Mihalis in the evening. Both great guys, full of chat and friendly to everyone there. They really made the stay great with regular supplies of ice cold beer. They chill their beer glasses - nice touch to keep'em cool! Also know to thrown a few cheeky shots our way too (don't tell Eveline!).

It has a great family atmosphere and they also run Scuba diving from their too. So you'll see the Scuba team around late afternoon.

The area does have plenty of bars and restaurants. We walked into Rethmynon a few times. It is about 5 miles so be warned! Though plenty of shops on the way to get bottles of water.

When you're there make sure to go up to the main road and turn right. Walk for about 10-15 minutes and you'll get to Remember Bar. Great food and a cool bar where (another) Mihalis will keep you entertained.

All in all an excellent stay. We do love Crete and are back there next week to Old Hersonnisos for our second trip in 10 weeks! When you find a great thing why change it??!

We'll also go back to Eveline next year and book direct as it means the apartments keep the money and don't pay out commission.

So to Vasiilis and Mihalis...make sure the fridge is well stocked up as we'll be back...

Just returned from another fabulous holiday at Evelin Apartments.
The bar and pool in the garden area are fantastic, just like being in your own back garden with your own personal barman (Vasilis during the day and Mihalis at night.......both fabulous guys!!!!!!!). The staff and owners treat you more like family than guests, nothing is too much trouble for them.
The rooms are spacious and light, the beds are comfy, and are cleaned every day with bedding and towels changed every three days. A nice touch, on arrival, is that bottled water, tea, coffee and milk are provided so that you can make a drink whilst unpacking.
It is perfectly situated close to shops and tavernas with easy access to Rethymnon, having Lidl next door is a bonus.
Cannot wait to return next year!!!

I have not stayed in these apartments as I live close by, but I know many people who have and who rate it highly and come back year after year. For me, I love going to the pool bar, where I sit, drink excellent coffee, have friendly conversation with the owners and staff and always feel very welcome. As I work from home, Evelin is my 2nd office. I am sure it would be the perfect small, friendly hotel to stay in and highly recommend it for families and couples a like.

We stayed here in late august courtesy of Thompson holidays - we were in a ground floor double room on the corner. The room was very clean, well maintained and with plenty of space. The wardrobe was also spacious but inaccessible to anyone under about 6 foot! The beds were OK and we didnt need or use the air con. The downside of thsi room was that it got the sun at lunchtime (no parasols) so eating out was no fun and in the evening it was almsot in darkness when other rooms were still enjoying full sun. Try and get a room over the entrance. We started going down the beach for an aperativo. The staff were very freindly and the bar and grass by the pool execellent. The hotel was close enough to the town and the supermarket or you could go up the hill to the village. The other let down was the patch of wasteland behind the room and just before the motorway. Why cant someone move the tractor which, judging by other reviews, has been there forever.
The little town (street) or Platanias has some good restaurants and bars but not much else. The beaches are very good - pay for the hotel beaches. We did a lot of walking (into rethymnon on the first day by the beach) and also the gorges (try the one above platanias - get a taxi and walk down - very cool and picturesque).

The buses drove us mad in the end - incomprehensible timekeeping

Altogether a good holiday and hotel - not top of the range but more than acceptable.

We have stayed at many places on many Greek islands and although they have all been lovely, none have been as lovely as this one. The rooms are spacious and clean. The view of the mountains is magnificent, and we loved the grassed sunbathing area which is much nicer than sitting in rows around a pool. Pool is also lovely, but, most importantly, the family are outstanding.
We will now be visiting at least once a year and are about to book for next June.
Lovely restaurants in the area - we particularly liked Finikas and Vergina 2 but that's just a personal choice - they are all lovely. A visit to White Lady is a must for a fun packed night and the Sky Bar is also brilliant.
Also, Rethymon itself is just down the road.
The perfect place.
