“Fantastic accomodation in the west of Crete”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

Olive Tree Apartments is situated in Kaliviani, a small and characteristic village in the very north-west of Crete, the less turistic part yet. It's a perfect place to stay if you want to relax and also if you desire to discover some of the most beautiful beaches of the island!!! For this, of course, you have to have a car....
When we arrived Costas welcome us with a cold drink, a nice and friendly smile and all the information we needed about the area around...he's the perfect host!
We stayed in a beautiful and romantic apartment, balconies with olive trees, sea and sunset view...daily cleaning and free Wi-Fi made it perfect!
We love Greece and this place perfectly represents the hospitality and kindness that this amazing country and its people can offer!!!

First the positive stuff
- beautiful place in true greek countryside
- really good value for money (large rooms, beautiful views, impeccable service etc.)
- and good location with an easy reach to beautiful beaches and spots in Crete.

HOWEVER to live here, you really need a car to do anything at all, go to the supermarket or the beach for example. That's the reason why this hotel is NOT for the lazy tourist who wants everything to be easy to reach. Unfortunately, we are lazy tourists and this hotel did not suit us.

There is no better place to stay if you want to visit the west coast of Crete: really profesional service, very warm welcome, very functional and fully equipped apartments and wonderful location close to the Balos Beach. We will definitely come back again.

Olive tree apartments are very well situated, just outside the small village of Kaliviani and within very easy reach of all the beautiful beaches of west Crete. We stayed in the studio which has two patios : one with a lovely olive groves and sea view and the other with a pool view. The studio itself is clean, the kitchenette is well-equipped. The pool and the small area for sun-bathing are very nice. Free Wi-Fi is a big plus. The staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed being in the area, not too touristic yet within easy reach of beaches, small coves, shops in Kissamos are only ten minutes away by car.

If you are looking for good, self catering accommodation with a touch of Greek quirkiness, then this is the place for you. We stayed here twice, once in an apartment and once in a studio. Both were good although the studio had a lovely view and was cooler. Costas, the manager, could not be more helpful and is able to offer lots of useful advice about the area. Kaliviani is an idyllic place yet within easy reach (by car) of several beautiful places-Elafonissi, Falasarna, Gramvoussa..... there are also two exceptional places to eat in the village: Kaliviani Traditional Hotel food only available to residents at the moment due to illness, but should be back to normal in a couple of months) and The Gramvoussa. We will will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We preferred Studio 3.

We stayed here for 4 nights in July 2011.
Costas was very welcoming helpful and informative during our stay.
Apartment and studio were very clean and well appointed and the breakfast was wonderful. It is so peaceful, the swimming pool is really well looked after and a good base for exploring the area. The bbq was a lovely evening, food great and such good value for money too.
We were touring and didn't want to leave, we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent

Olive Tree Apartments is a quiet place with spacious, fully equipped rooms, swimming pool in the garden and beautiful nature around. The manager Costas is very friendly, ready to help with anything. It's a great location for those who want to relax or explore the western Crete with all the lovely beaches (Falasarna, Balos,..). It's one of the best places we've visited in Crete.
