“Wonderfull Holiday”
Reviewed 22 July 2007

Had a wonderfull time, the apartments are basic, but kept very clean by the hard working Poppy, our room was cleaned 3 times during a 7 day stay. The bar staff a very friendly and helpfull and bend over backwards to correct any problems you may have.

The only issue was the steps especialy if you are placed in the top rooms, so if you have walking or breathing difficulties then this is not the place for you. The local municipal beach is a short walk (10" approx) from the apartments with 2 reasonable tavernas nearby along with a small supermarket. The town of Agios Nikolaos is a 30" walk along a busy road or the bar staff will order you a taxi. The cost of a taxi into town is 6 Euros

The weather apart..our family had in the main a good holiday, 2 dayds sunshine and 5 days torrential rain (which i must say is not the norm)sti ll didnt dampen what is a beautiful part of the world.
the appartments are everything that has been written about them, clean, spacious,and adequate for what we wanted, although we were taken by surprise that on a self catering holiday you had to hire kettle, tv controls and the aircon which is advertised but not the fact that you have to hire it!!
the place is out of the way but not so much that you are stranded, and the staff and locals are very friendly.
my complaints would be around the fact that the pool was closed for 4 out of the 7 days we were there as it was not clean there is not a lot to entertain children and the fact that the one source that did entertain was closed for 4 days was not good.
there should be more notice given about the fact that the resort is not very good if you have trouble with stairs, i consider myself fairly fit and i had trouble with them especially getting the luggage up to the rooms.
i dont know about the mozzie's but i came bacdk bitten to death by something, and this is the first time ever in 25 years of travelling abroad that that has happened!!!!
all in all though the appartments are ideal as a base to explore what is a beautiful place and for the price we paid i would recommend a visit..............but in a better time of the year when there is defo no chance of RAIN!!!!

  • Liked — Location to some amazing places
  • Disliked — what ever it was that was biting me (i dont think they were mozzies!)
  • Tips/Secrets — dont expect the ritz, but do expect comfortable and ideal base for exploring

I could not recommend more strongly a stay at the Ledra Maleme appartments. This was our third visit there, and it just gets better and better. They are a small, family run establishment, Nikos and his wife Anastasia, her parents Maria and George, and Pavlos. The staff are friendly, welcoming and good fun. The rooms are basic, but kept clean and in excellent condition. There is a pool, bar, and restaurant, something for everyone. Definately not for party-goers and revellers, this is a quiet place, but is lots to do, be it chilling by the pool or sight-seeing in the beautiful surrounding areas. Maleme is smallish, but has everything you need, plentiful tavernas and 2 large supermarkets. Once you've been I can guarantee you will want to go back!!

We had a great time at Ledra. We went there on honeymoon and t was the best two weeks ever. The apartments are spotless and although we were at the very top and had to climb the stairs the views are amazing !!!!!

The town is fantastic with lots to do and plenty of shopping and there are some fantastic shops and the food is wonderfull. You must visit Kri Kri and they will give you a wonderful greeting, (you may leave a bit wobbly though)

Lucie, Kosta, Lisa and Poppy made the stay even more worth while they are the best hosts and staff ever and we have made some very good friends. Tears were flowing when we left.

We are returning next year and we can't wait !!!!!

  • Liked — clean and spacious with great staff

Returned last night from the Ledra apartments and it is pretty much what everyone else has written. Be prepared to pay the extra 40 for air con which surprised us. Unlke the others we didnt stay in the complex to eat or drink at all and decided to visit other places within Chania and Maleme instead. The Greek family were over and at night it was very noisy. We had room 49 which was directly next door to the family apartment - NOT a good idea!!!! Location is excellent and we were at the beach most days visiting the Mythos cafe bar which had great food and service (it's on the very end). I can recommend the Traffic restaurant on the main strip in Maleme - say hello to Bridgette. Overall a great relaxing 'shut down' holiday. Libra should consider the impact the Greek owners and their families and children are having on current and future holiday makers. This is my second time to Crete and would prefer Maleme to Platanias. Next time I am going to stay in Chania- you cannot beat it!!!

Not long back from an excellent stay at the Ledra apartments. We booked last minute, and did not know what to expect. From the outside, the apartments are beautiful, in lovely surroundings with a nice pool and small pool bar & restaurant. Our apartment was fairly basic, but that is Greece, and we hadnt paid through the nose so we were happy. It was very clean. All staff at the apartments were great. The thing we liked the most was how relaxing it was there, and the fact that it was small enough to get to know all the guests while we were there. Everyone was so friendly. There is not much to Maleme, but as others have said, Platanias and Xania are close by and within easy reach. There is a beautiful beach 'Gorgona' at Platanais, which can be reached by bus. Its fairly busy, but really good. The beach at Maleme is stoney, and we didnt bother with it. Down at the waterfront there are a few good tavernas and bars. It is a quiet resort, but that is what we were looking for, and that is what we got. It is worth hiring a car to visit the more westerly points of the island for amazing beaches, but watch out on the mountain roads - they are scary as hell!!
Overall, we loved our holiday. Even if we had paid full price we would have been happy. It was the best place we had stayed in a few years, and we would recommend it if you are looking for a nice relaxing break.

  • Liked — The pool & restaurant area........so relaxing & chilled out.

we had a great holiday staying at the ledra appts.
the rooms are basic but cleen with all you need. one ctach is that it says it comes with aircon , this is correct but you have to pat an extra 40 euros a week.
this was the only complaint.

it is a very safe area for kids, the pool and pool bar were great and 5min walk to the beach
the restaurant and bar price was cheaper than many other places out side the hotel which encouraged you to stay in you hotel.
{ not to far to stager back to the room}

the resort in very quiet which we liked but might not be good for every one but a bus every half hour took you to a very busy town with hundreads of bars ect onlt 10 mins away up to midnight.

not compaint appart from the aircon which we did pay for
