This is the sort of hotel where you can just go down to the bar and have a good time with whoever is there. Everyone we met there was friendly and accommodating, Especially the owners, Minas, Jenny, Maria and Stefan, as well as any other family members that popped up to help from time to time. It is them that made this holiday that much better, and looked after us when we were too drunk to look after ourselves.
Also, this place is a short walk from the strip with countless bars, clubs and restaurants (only a handful we managed to try) but still far enough away to be quiet on a night time.
In short, I would definitely visit again. Thanks!!

Well it's been 2 years since our last visit, and we had as fabulous time as before. Minas, Jenny and Maria couldn't be more accommodating, and the guests were all really friendly, including everyone sitting at the bar into their conversations. The weekly barbecue was the best value for money anywhere, for 10 euros we were treated to all the usual BBQ food, bottle of wine per couple, lashings and lashings of Raki, which I really think was lighter fuel :). Then the festivities! Minas dancing on the pool table with a bevvy of beauties all suitably adorned with fancy hats. The apartments are basic, this is Greece after all, but what they lack in luxury, the family more than make up for with their hospitality We were there the 2nd last week of the season so Maria had a "cook off" of all the stock left in her freezer and fed the remaining guests free one night, pizza, chips, sausage, burgers, meatballs, not many hoteliers would do this! All good wishes for Stephan to make a speedy recovery, the son of the family, we missed his wit behind the bar this year, but look forward to seeing him fully fit next time we are there. The best way to book this is flight direct and then book direct with the Apartment as Thomas Cook don't seem to be able to find that it exists. I believe Easyjet holidays will be using it next year, but alas they don't fly to Heraklion from Glasgow.

We return here as often as possible for the same reasons as many others. If you haven't been before, you may be disappointed by the lack of sink plugs, having to buy your own toilet paper, the balcony light that doesn't work, electric sockets in the most inconvenient places, bathroom floors that get wet everytime you shower, lots of stairs, no lifts, noise from the street, temperamental kettles and utility furniture. If this kind of stuff bothers you, then you shouldn't bother to come. This place is 'all inclusive' in the best sense. The welcome, the hospitality, the silly jokes, the sarcasm and insults,the local information, the kindness, the company, knowledge and holiday friendships of returning guests is all included. The barbecue and raki run is a little optional extra. This is an old fashioned style holiday where you can just relax and enjoy yourself. It's the people that make it special for us. Even Thomas Cook has given up trying to flog you overpriced and overrated trips. Never saw a rep the entire time we were there. Once again we are indebted to the other guests and family at Minas apartments for a great holiday. Thank you.
