We've just got back from our second visit in 2 years to this fantastic hotel. I wondered if I was looking back with rose tinted specticals, I wasn't. Once again I was made to feel like a long lost freind. Great food and cocktails along with some good hearted banter with Andreas, who understands both the English language and the dry sense of humour we seem to have. As usual Evita was just the sweetest and helpful person you could meet. What's so good about them is the fact that being nice and helpful is not an act of duty, they're just nice people. The showers have been upgraded during the winter and are cleaned every day except Sundey. The nearest beach which is around 10min walk has been cleaned up sinse my last visit and the sunbeds and parasols too. All in all a wise choice for both couples or couples with young children.

Room Tip: The rear rooms face the garden and are quieter. The front face the pool where you can the pool and s...

Today our taxi dropped us off at the wrong hotel and we were lucky enough discover these amazing apartments with the most caring, lovely, kind owners who despite the fact we weren't staying there helped us get to our hotel. The apartments look amazing. The pool was beautiful and the food looked and smelled devine:) Wish we were staying there and will certainly be booking here for our next stay on crete. Book it. You're in for a treat :) thankyou ella :)

All of the positive reviews of Lefka Apartments are accurate - it is a real find. We just enjoyed ten fabulous days there Evita and Andreas along with Sarah and Nico made our holiday really special. The good was delicious and great value. The pool was large and clean and the kids spent many happy hours splashing around whilst we lounged sipping lovely drinks from the bar.

The apartment was compact with a well stocked kitchenette. The bathroom was small but modern and well appointed. The apartment was spotless and cleaned daily. Outstanding quiet air conditioning kept us cool even on the hottest days.

Cannot recommend Lefka enough - bliss!

Four of us stayed here in June (I apologise to anyone who has missed out by not reading this before booking somewhere else).
We has the most amazing time in Chania and Lefka apartments Andreas, Evita and Sarah really made this experience. We arrived late at night and were really hungry, despite getting ready to turn in for the night, Andreas the owner said it was no trouble to knock us up some food in the kitchen. Nothing was too much for these kind people from the word go and they never wanted anything in return. The bus station in to Chania is just by the apartments, there is a local supermarket just over the road and a lovely café a 5minute walk up the road. You can walk into town if you are feeling energetic its about 30mins by foot. We just hoped on the cheap local bus. Tickets can be purchased at the bar slightly cheaper.
The rooms are clean and very authentic, and there was a little treat of a bottle of wine in our room on arrival. Evita is an amazing cook and kept bringing out treats for us to try. Sarah their reliable bar staff is very nice she speaks many languages and is currently learning Russian too.
Andreas makes the best cocktails -a definite must try before leaving. He also recommended some lovely places to eat and whilst I could eat Greek every day of the week, we all fancied something different so Andreas drove us to an amazing Lebanese restaurant for our last night. The food was amazing and Andreas again would except nothing in return.
These people work so hard, they have a young family yet work all day and night, yet are so happy and kind.
Next time in Chania we ill not hesitate to stay again!

I have visited many Greek islands Corfu, Rhodes, Kos etc but this was may first time to Crete & booked this room directly with the owners (they don't use agents) & I think you really see the difference in quality because, although this is budget accommodation, it sets a brilliants standard. There is a busy road to the front of the site but a high plastic fence & great planting means you don't see it & yes you hear the road but the chicadas drown out any noise most of the time. As they don't use agents for booking we emailed the owners who replied really quickly & booking with them was no problems.

The true benefits of these apartments are: the staff so friendly, helpful & generous; the comfort it's immaculately clean & the beds are comfortably; the location it's not next to the beach, a short 5/10 minute walk to the closest beach or a 15 minute walk to the nicer beach but the local bus is really easy & less than a £1 a trip to Chania, very handy having a big supermarket right opposite; great air-con that's quiet enough & good double glazing meaning a quiet nights sleep; a nice even mix of nationalities stayed when we were there so there was no bias to English/German etc.

There are loads of little extra surprises that makes this, by far, the best self-catering accommodation I've ever used in almost 20 years of visiting Greece....things like free wine red wine & olive oil in the room on arrival, free drink from Sarah on booking in, free beers from Andreas & Evita making little treats we were given when sitting at the pool bar yum. Andreas would't take no for answer when giving us a lift to the bus station, to get our bus to the airport on our final day, nor would he accept money for breaking his pan, which just sums up how fantastic their customer service is!

We had a great relaxed week & would definitely recommend. They truly deserve such a high rating excellent value for money.

We spent a week at Lefka apartments and honestly could not ask for anything more. The whole feel of the place is about relaxation and comfort.

On arrival, we were delighted with how clean and comfortable everywhere was. The apartment and the surrounding grounds were really lovely.

The self catering accommodation was filled with helpful gadgets to make life easy. You could actually cook in them!!

Andreas, Evita and Sarah could not do enough to help us, and anyone else; always ready to give advice or provide everyone with food and drinks.

We couldn't ask for anything more and will definitely return.

Our first visit to these apartments and what a pleasure it was to stay there.The moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Andreas and Evita and served a delicious meal freshly cooked even at 10.00pm.

The whole complex is just perfect from the lovely pool to the modern well equipped and spotless apartments which have everything you need including free air conditioning.

The cleaners do an excellent job and sheets and towels are great quality.

The food served at the lovely pool bar is delicious and there are books,games and free wifi and also a laptop for use if you need it.

During the day you are looked after by Sarah who is absolutely brilliant and will help you out with booking taxis,restaurants etc.

She is also an excellent cook and speaks fluent English.

Andreas and Evita are also available to help you with anything you need.

There is a good range of snacks and Greek dishes available all day.

The location of the apartments is very good and is 10 minutes taxi ride form Chania centre.

There is a busy road outside but the apartments but that did not bother us as there is a wall and shrubbery screening the apartments.We were located at the front facing the pool and it was perfect.
Rooms at the rear face a lovely garden and have no road noise.

There is a very large supermarket across the road stocking everything you need at good prices.

the beach is 10 minutes away but you will find it very hard to leave the pool area.

There were a mixture of nationalities in the sixteen apartments.A lot of these were repeat visitors and it is not hard to see why.

I would highly recommend these apartments and will definitely be back.

5 stars to the owners.

Room Tip: Rooms at the font have pool view and a little road noise. Rooms at the rear face the garden.
