“A small and quiet set of apartments , basic accommodation, pool area and bar reasonable”

Well set apart from the village with a good vantage point, I'm sure some of the apartments have really good views, the one we were in was on the ground floor so the view was a little obstructed. The climb back from the village was very steep and the footpaths uneven, not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties, we were aware of this and it has been mentioned by other reviews, but it is not to be underestimated. The main reason I Mention it was because on arrival very late at night we were dropped off at the bottom of the lane with the driver indicating that the apartments were somewhere up there as he pointed up hill and up a dark lane. We struggled for quite some distance to haul the cases up a very steep incline this was not how we really wanted the holiday to begin and although we are reasonably fit and able bodied it was a struggle. To be fair to the apartment owners on this issue this was the fault of Thomas Cook, the driver is supposed to ring the apartments to let us know they were dropping us off but we were told they had failed to do this, from previous mentions of this in reviews it is not the first time this has happened. On our departure we were given a lift , from the owner, with our cases to us collection point, which we were very grateful for. The apartment was very small, the balcony was extremely small, you could just about fit two chairs and small table on it. The room Was very basic and although just about adequate could have been better maintained. We had asked for a double bed but had two single beds pushed together. The best thing about the apartments was the pool was a reasonable size, compared to others we saw in the area, none of them were large, and the bar and pool area were quite nice. In general people staying there seemed to enjoying the quiet lounging in the pool area. This was not really what we wanted to spend a lot of time doing so we tended to go out more. The owners and Barman were very helpful and happy to give directions or information when asked. If I was honest the standard of the accommodation was more basic than I expected for rating it had in the brochure and the price we paid but it was okayish for a week.

“First class clean apartments with stunning views, excellent holiday !!”

Just returned from a really lovely holiday staying at the Dirades Apartments in Piskopiano Crete. We were greeted with a smile on arrival by Eleni the owner, she made us feel most welcome along with George the barman. Eleni works so hard to make sure everything works so well to keep every guest happy, nothing is too much trouble, she always has her smile.
The apartments are situated on a hillside which is a five minute walk up quite a steep hill from the main part of the village, where there are many tavernas, restaurants and bars, its a lovely quiet resort, a really relaxing place.
Our room was basic and very clean, did not spend long it it anyway. Once outside there are well kept colourful gardens, a lovely clean pool with plenty of space around to relax, enough sunloungers to keep everyone happy, a pool bar with a good selection of daytime snacks to choose from. If that's not enough then there is the view, its stunning, as is the backdrop of the mountain behind floodlit at night.
The whole place is just really well run, peaceful and relaxing !
We had a wonderful stay, we will definately be returning to Dirades Apartments, Piskopiano, !!!!!!!
