Reviewed 28 July 2013

We stayed here for a few days whilst we were on holiday, lovely quiet apartments tucked away behind the Panormos Beach hotel. A short walk down to the lovely sandy beach (the hill down to the beach is a bit of a killer coming back though!). Nowhere is far away in Panormos. There is a large supermarket round the corner, and the harbour is a little further on from the supermarket. The taverna on the beach does lovely food, as do most of the tavernas in the village and round the harbour.
The rooms are spacious, and the flower decked balconies look out over a lovely pool, which was cleaned daily. Drinks from the bar are the cheapest I've seen anywhere - we didn't bother getting beers or wine from the supermarket to keep in the room as it was almost as cheap to get them from the bar. And where else do you see fresh orange juice for a euro? The owners are very friendly and accommodating.
The only small gripe we had was that when we arrived we said we wanted to stay for three nights, (which actually turned into four because we liked it so much) but during this time the room was not cleaned or the bins were not emptied which is very unusual. I wouldn't have expected clean linen or towels, but I do expect bins to be emptied, if not daily at least every other day. Apart from this oversight, we had a wonderful stay, and would happily return.

Stayed here for our first holiday together in 2011.
Ive been brought up on trips to Greece and always in lovely little villages with real Greek charm....im not really the "resort" type as such.
Panormos was perfect! Beautiful, quiet, with good ammenities and tavernas coming out of your ears!
We chose to stay at Konaki as it suited us best. Lovely gardens, pool, good price, self catering.
We were not disappointed at all. It was all we wanted. The gardens and pool and a treat and the studio was basic but well equipt and right for the price. It was kept clean and we had all we needed.
The only downside was our arrival night. We had daft flights that got us in at 1am! The owner Nikos had been really helpful and emailed prior, he'd left a little map taped to the door at reception which lead to our room and the key was in the door. No problems there, found it no bother and fell into bed. However about an hour later we were awoken by Nikos himself coming into the room. It turns out another guest had arrived they werent expecting. He assumed it was me and let her in our room! An honest mistake and he did apologise but meant a bit of a broken night when we were already exhausted.
Other than that the perfect first holiday :)
We had a lovely time!!

If you go you MUST try one of Marias iced coffees....theyre amazing! And make sure you go up to the roof garden to watch the sunset. Beautiful.

The outdoor of the hotel is very nice, the swimming pool is a good thing and the place is quiet. The indoor of the room is a little bit less nice. The room is quite big, but the furnitures are very old. The kitchen part is also old, and the bathroom not very well designed (the bathroom is all wet when you take a shower).
The owners are nice, but they don't accept credit cards...

Have stayed here twice now. Well kept, beautiful place in the centre of the village. Peaceful even in high season. Good size pool given overall size of hotel area. Highly recommended.

I was driving around Crete on a motorcycle for almost two weeks in September and happened to stay one night in Panormo also. Konaki was of the best standard during my trip! In this kind of place you could easily stay for longer time away from tourist crowds, in peace. Hosts were really kind, the yard and swimming pool as well as the room itself were beautiful and clean.

I have made 25...30 trips to Greece from Finland and this one is a place where I can not find any faults or negative points!

An absolutely wonderfull place to stay, welcoming, clean and well run. Hidden away in the side streets away from the tourists hustle and bustle. Room was well equipped with the basics, fresh linen and cleaned regularly. The ownwers should be very proud of this establishment with its lovely clean pool on your door step surrounded by an amazing display of plants. We used it as a base for driving the hire car to places we wanted to go can recommend most of the local tavernas for fresh local food at reasonable prices. I think I may have to break my rule of visiting a place more than once for this one.

At Konaki apartments in Panormo, you discover the true warm and welcoming Crete. The privately owned bungalows and studio's, are hidden away in a side street, just around the corner from the Panormo local supermarket (we found only one supermarket in town, so you just cannot miss it!), the restaurants and the beach. Although the beach is beautiful, you will find the lovely swimmingpool, in front of your bungalow doorstep, all to yourself! We stayed in Konaki three times and feel very much welcomed by the Greek couple who runs the place. They make perfect swimmingpool drinks, for prices you never see anywhere else! I mean, can you name one place in Europe where you only pay 1 Euro for a fresh orange juice or frappe? Since their son made sure Konaki is wired to the WIFI, they are now the proud owners of a website as well and you can make use of their free internet. These people deserve it to be mentioned on Tripadvisor. If you are looking for a calm, quiet hideout, go here!!!! The crowds didn't discover this one yet...And don't think twice about the price; 30 Euro's for a 3 people studio, with either stunning seaside views, garden view, or a beautiful patio in front of your doorstep. We absolutely enjoy sitting on the patio, sipping icy cold Greek wine and nibbling away at some mezes, bought around the corner. Absolute BLISS!!!!! Although we do hope the place is not crowded when we go there next time ;0) Enjoy!!
