Reviewed 22 October 2013

My husband and myself stayed at Mirabella apartments in October for 2 weeks. It was our second stay here (the first one was in May last year). We have been traveling for over 50 years and never before had we spent our precious vacation time in the same place twice. Mirabella has the best of both worlds: absolute homely Greek hospitality and precise/efficient west European management. There is another feature that both of us liked - each apartment has its own entrance, therefore you can mingle with other guests near the pool or at the bar, or (if you feel you need a bit of solitude) you can live there for weeks enjoying just each others' company. The location is just 20 meters from the sea and at night you are floating to sleep listening to the waves' lullaby. Well needless to say that we booked our third holiday (next September) when we were leaving for home. Well done, Mikhalis, Koula and Elizabeth.

Svetlana thank you so much for this lovely review, your second for the Mirabella Apartments. We are so pleased that you and Mikhail enjoyed yourselves so much on your first visit to us that you have now joined our returning friends group. We are looking forward to seeing you for your third visit in September 2014 when you can fall asleep listening to the waves gently lapping against the shore :-)

I know that you have travelled extensively throughout the world and that until now you have never returned to the same location twice. So to not only return to Crete but to return to the Mirabella Apartments is for us a massive vote of confidence in our hospitality, service and location.

As I have said in previous responses returning guests are the biggest compliment any hotelier can receive. For all our returning friends we thank you very much for making the Mirabella Apartments your home in Crete.

We stayed at Mirabella for 9 days. Having had a hectic few months in demanding jobs, our aim was to find a place that did not feel like a resort, that allowed us to relax and in that respect Mirabella ticks the boxes. It has an intimate feel to it with friendly staff as well as guests.

The first room we stayed in had very nice views of the Mirabello bay. However when a room became available that had breath-taking views of the sea, we asked to be moved and our request was granted without fuss. Elizabeth, the manager, was very helpful and was available to provide valuable tips each time we asked. Havania beach is 5 minutes away and is a stunning beach. There are lots of Tavernas nearby serving good Greek food and access into town is easy from Mirabella apartments. Overall, we enjoyed our holiday so much that we are going to be returning in the future.

Thank you very much for your lovely review. The reservation that you made was originally for one of our two "One Bedroom Apartments" which are located in the first building. The bedding in this Apartment consists of single beds. When a Studio with a double bed became available on the ground floor of the second building we were happy to move you. We are very pleased that you liked both rooms very much and we look forward to your return.

As a true beachfront location, guests can access Havania Beach within 1 minute from a pathway at the side of the snack bar that we created this year. Alternatively guests can walk along the main road and be on the beach within a few minutes.

As mentioned in previous reviews the atmosphere at the Mirabella Apartments is very relaxing and guests of all nationalities mingle together at the pool or at the snack bar enjoying the views.

4th time back to the Mirabella and I got engaged! Thank you to all the help from Elizabeth, Koula and all the girls for putting all of my wishes into action, nothing was a problem. Upon arrival Elizabeth had been good enough to provide Champagne, Chocolates, Flowers and swans made into a heart from towels, all ready for my proposal just as requested.

I really can't speak highly enough for this place and all of it's staff, as for the view, it's mesmerising, constantly changing and absolutely beautiful, you could be anywhere in the world. We like it so much, we'll be back in April!

What can I say Simon.... except it was an absolute pleasure to help you get everything right for your proposal to Rachael. For those people who haven't guessed the outcome, she said YES!! We are now looking forward to helping you arrange your Wedding which will be held in Agios Nikolaos with your Reception at the Mirabella Apartments. As locations go, this is certainly a fantastic backdrop for your Wedding Photographs.

We look forward to your return in April when we can go through the arrangements and recommendations for photographers, florists, bakers etc.

Happy Wedding Gown shopping, Rachael :-)

Just got back from a week at the Mirabella apartments and I can only add to the high praise previously given. We had a fantastic time. It was our first time in Crete so I have no comparison but it gave us a base for a lovely, relaxing holiday. We had a first floor balcony and as often mentioned, the view of the sea is really special. The apartments are basic but really clean and comfortable with everything you need We really enjoyed waking up to the sound of the sea and having coffee on our balcony in the morning. We did not use the small pool during our stay but walked 2 mins to Havania Beach which was great and had a nice little Beach bar. Elizabeth and all the staff were really friendly and helpful during our stay and Elizabeth pointed out some even nicer beaches we'd look to try on our next trip. We really thank them all very much.

Both Agios and Elounda are lovely resorts. We mainly walked to Agios and the 30 minute walk was really nothing with some nice bars and tavernas enroute. It was great weather all week, the people are really friendly and we're already planning a 2 week trip for next year. All in all, a really lovely stay

Mark, thank you so much for your lovely review and it was a pleasure to meet you and Louise. All rooms at the Mirabella Apartments have stunning views of Mirabello Bay and the distant mountains that lead towards Sitia. The views together with the relaxing atmosphere all lend to a wonderful location where guests can truly enjoy their holiday. For people who have never visited Crete before, there is something for everyone on this beautiful island.

We look forward to seeing you again when we can recommend new places for you to visit.

A beautiful view and surroundings make this place very special. I love the sea which I could see from my very spacious balcony. Also, the walk up to the apartments was filled with a fantastic garden containing fruit trees and gorgeous flowers. I really enjoyed reading by the pool and smelling the jasmine.

Breakfast was excellent, too! Eating near the pool under the trees was a wonderful experience. The rooms were spacious and mine was very clean. My parents said there was some dust under their bed and their were a few small ants around, but overall it was okay.

The price was very good and well worth the accommodation provided.

Many thanks for your review and we are very pleased that you and your Parents enjoyed your stay with us and we totally agree that the view is beautiful. The garden has many fruit trees that produce fruit all year round and some guests enjoy picking a lemon for their G&T!

We are sorry that there were a few ants and some dust in your Parents bedroom as we do try to ensure the rooms are as clean as possible. If guests make us aware of a cleaning issue we will rectify this as quickly as possible.

We believe our rates are always very good and we are currently offering an Early Booking Discount on reservations received before 28/2/2014.

After reading the wonderful reviews we were certainly not disappointed! Elizabeth, Koula and family were all so friendly and the whole holiday was a complete rest which was just what we needed. The views were to die for and the breakfast sitting under the olive trees overlooking the sea was a wonderful start to each day. Lovely walk into Agious Nikolaos about 3km but not strenuous so we managed it each day (sometimes twice!!). We used the local bus which was really good - what a wonderful place to wait for a bus overlooking the beach at Havania!! Apartments were really clean with regular linen and towel changes. Met some lovely people also staying at the Mirabella and really enjoyed the friendly relaxing atmosphere. Thank you for making us so welcome.

Thank you for such a lovely review and it was a pleasure to meet you all. You 'girls of a certain age" and your husbands certainly put me to shame with your boundless energy by walking to and from town most days {I will use the excuse that I have had a very busy summer :-)} The walk to Agios Nikolaos is along a well lit and paved area where guests can stop along the way and partake in a meal or a drink. I think the record for a returning walk is 8 hours!!

This year the bus company increased the buses running to and from Agios Nikoalos / Elounda from once per hour to twice and extended the times they ran until 9.30pm. Bus time tables are available in Reception and the fare is 1.7 per person.

Many of the guests you met have booked to return next September, maybe we will see you all then.

The location near the beautiful Havania beach is amazing, nice small pool with a sort of Jacuzzi corner. The apartment we had was decent, but not as nice and comfy as the other rooms. Free parking. Bikes available for free, a couple were in a decent condition and another couple in not as good condition. The bathroom in the older apartments is a bit old and not as nice. None of the facilities listed in the Booking.com website were available. It says fitness centre, tennis court, wind surf, canoeing etc is available at this accommodation. None of that is available, it is a lie. Maybe you have to go somewhere else and look for that in the area.

Many thanks for your review and we are very sorry to learn that there was misleading information on one of the many sites we are listed on. When I saw your review on booking.com I checked all the details that were listed against us and amended those which we do not have. Unfortunately it would appear that details have been accredited to our accommodation from a 3rd party, which we were unaware of. I would have replied to you previously to thank you for informing us that a 3rd party site needed to be reviewed however as you had made your review anonymously I was unable to do this. We apologise for the upset this must have caused you for your one night stay in August. However please note that it is never our intention to lie to guests and hope that previous and future guests know this. Reviews on tripadvisor from previous guests all indicate that we do our utmost to give guests our best service.

On some of the 3rd party site we are listed on we have been asked to provide a list of facilities and attractions within a 3km radius of the Mirabella Apartments, which we have done. Certainly within 3kms there is a fitness centre, tennis courts and canoeing. We do offer wind surfing and Stand Up Paddle Surfing and boards are stored at the Mirabella Apartments or can be brought to the apartments when required. We also have boards at another local beach.

The other facilities offered at the Mirabella Apartments include:
Table Tennis
Pool Table
Book Exchange / Library
Bicycles - free of charge
Ticket Sales for trips to Spinalonga and Santorini
Access to Havania Beach
Access to children's playground
Car parking

We can also arrange at a different location:
diving lessons
tennis lessons, court and equipment hire
We can have hire cars, mopeds and motorbike delivered to the Apartments for guests , usually within 15 minutes of being requested. Please note that scooter and motorbike hire, guests must hold the appropriate licence.

We can also arrange for a Beauty Therapist to visit your room for massage, waxing, facials, manicure and pedicure treatments. Appointments are required.

The accommodation at the Mirabella Apartments is split between two buildings. Building 1 had two x One Bedroom Apartments which are on the ground floor level. However due to the layout of our grounds, the ground floor of building 1 is practically level with the first floor level of building 2.

Building 2 comprises of double and triple Studios and apartments for 4 and 5 guests. The ground floor level has our 15m swimming pool and Jacuzzi, sun loungers and the snack bar.

All accommodation is air conditioned and has a sea view and each room either has a courtyard, terrace or balcony. A safety deposit box is also located within each room.

For any guests who would like to contact us before their visit, please email us through our official website.
