Short notice, great price flight + accom deal so modest expectations. What a pleasant surprise this was! Extraordinary views (all appartments have sea views but islands & mountains topped it off). Simple but great 'family-run' place with warm, friendly people & useful food/supplies shop onsite. Quiet , seawater pool (10 yards from our door) & plenty of sunbeds.
20 min stroll to Elounda with some very good bars & Tavernas (particularly good choice of fresh seafood). Excellent, cheap buses & Plaka (3.5km) well worth a visit for great food. We also visited Sitia (2 hours via Agios Nicolaos bus station) & while Sitia wasn't as pleasant as Elounda, the views from the bus were spectacular.
Can't speak too highly of Kavos Bay - if you're looking for a quiet break with lovely, warm hospitality this is hard to beat. UK could take a lead from Crete when it comes to how to treat visitors - welcoming & generous without subservience, you'll feel among friends. Weather was superb so pay up for the optional aircon - some reviewers think €50 a bit steep for 1 week's coolness but since you have it running for about 18 hrs a day I think it's fair enough.
We loved this place & will return.
