Myself and my partner stayed here is October 2013. The apartment was clean and spacious with a wonderful sea view. The atmosphere was very relaxing and peaceful. Havania beach is next door and Agios Nikolaos is about a 35 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride away (the bus stop is just outside of the apartments). There are several bars and restauranst on the way into town. Elizabeth, the hotel manager was very helpul and provided us with lots of local information. One day we hired kayaks from the nearby Mirabello Hotel and on another occasion we travelled on the bus to Elounda where we caught a water taxi over to Spinalonga Island (a former leper colony).

Many thanks for your lovely review and we are very pleased you had a relaxing holiday with us. Thankfully during your stay the weather was warm and sunny but it was unfortunate that you did not get to see the night time electric storms that we normally experience in October. The lightening is truly amazing.

The accommodation at the Mirabella Apartments all have wonderful sea views and the Studios on the ground floor, where you stayed, are slightly larger that those on the first floor.
For guests who wish to participate in water sports during your stay we can either recommend or arrange diving, stand up paddle surf, kayak rental etc. We can also arrange tennis lessons, racquet and court rental.

The cosmopolitan town of Agios Nikolaos offers a very good selection of bars, restaurants and tavernas to suit all budgets.

Mirabella Apartments are situated in an ideal location for the photography that we wanted to do. Our room was spotlessly clean, with a wonderful sea view. I only wished we could have stayed longer than 3 days, I definitely want to return one day

Thank you so much for your lovely review of your time spent with us at the Mirabella Apartments. We are so pleased that you managed to get the photographs that you wanted. Regardless of the time of day, from the early morning golden sun rises to the evenings when the distant mountains change in colour to many shades of iridescent pink, the views from the Apartments are very beautiful.

We also hope that you will return to us in the future and that you will be able to extend your stay for longer.

Thank you very much Audrey for your lovely review and recommendation. Although you had visited the Mirabella Apartments many times previously, this was your first visit since I started working here. It was a pleasure to meet you and Ian and we are looking forward to seeing you again next year.

I know that you have stayed in many of our Studios and Apartments but that you prefer the larger Studios on the ground floor as they offer direct access to the swimming pool and sun loungers. All accommodation at the Mirabella Apartments offer great views and the location is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday.

Recommendations work both ways and I like to visit the restaurants and tavernas that guests tell me about. I in turn can then pass on the recommendation from personal experience.

Sep 2013 What can I say another chilled out holiday. After a bad start which included my car being smash into on the way to the airport. When we arrived when we were greeted with a nice cold beer by the lovely Cleo. Nothing was to much trouble Elizabeth was brilliant helping me contact the insurance company on Skype so I could sort everything out. Thank you Elizabeth. Once that was all sorted I enjoyed a very relaxing hoilday with my son Ash. We tried some lonely new restaurants recommend by Elizabeth and the food was lovely and a big thank to everyone you always made to feel like part of the family and the Mriabell apartments feels like my second home in the sun (like they say I I'll be back lol......)

Dear Jules and Ash, you are definitely part of the Mirabella family. We would like to thank you for your continued support and loyalty to us and we always look forward to your visits.

Your holiday did not start in a relaxing way as you were involved in a traffic accident before you reached Manchester Airport. We were pleased to help you contact the insurance company and get the "ball rolling" and we hope that you like your new car.

As returning friends I like to recommend different places for you to visit and I am very pleased that I could introduce you to new restaurants and tavernas this visit. I will undertake some dining out research before the start of next season so that I can recommend new places for you and other guests.

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 :-)
