I just loved the Despina Apartments. We stayed in Kato Gouves in July 2015 and & fell in love with the little place so decided to try different accommodation & we weren't disappointed.
Small family run apartments, in a brilliant location. Quiet, chilled out & relaxing - just as I like it.
We had a fabulous apartment , nice & spacious and it was cleaned daily. I love the proximity to the beach & the walks you can take each day. Kato Gouves has some wonderful tavernas and restaurants. The bar area is lovely too.
The little Cretan shop down the road is so cute.
Will be going back next year for certain.
Thanks for an awesome week.

We stayed at Despina apt in August 2016. Our apartment consisted of 2 rooms: 1 with one bed, dining table, small kitchenette with a fridge and hot plate, and a bedroom
The rooms are basic, the "kitchen" has everything you might need for cooking breakfast (or lunch, or supper).
The pool was nice and clean when we were there, even though it was close to the end of summer. Always plenty of sunbeds.
Wifi was not always working properly in the room, but on the balcony it was always fine
The family that runs the Apts are terribly nice )))... Always helpful and ready to answer questions
The beach is not far, we were normally going to the one next to the Island restaurant.

The bathroom.. Well.. the bathroom is typical of the apts in Crete. Or Santorini.. Always water on the floor... ))).. BUt, you get what you pay for. It is a very good value for the money you pay )))

Stayed here for 2 weeks the apartments are run by a Mother and her 3 sons a lovely family friendly staff apartment was serviced every day. And all the Family speak English so if you need anything they are only to happy to help.The apartments have a Cocktail bar and the sons serve up a wide range of Cocktails and beer's next door to the apartments is the car Hire Company we hired a car for the day for 40 euro's and the Family that run it will help you and give you advice on the local driving conditions.there are plenty Taverna's handy to the Despina we think the best is George's he and his wife serve up First Class food and cant do enough for you.The Beach is nearby and 2 sun loungers and parasol will cost you 6 euro's a day bargain.Further afield try the 2 Friends tavern for food on a par with Georges I would say these 2 serve up the best food in Gouves. In the main part of Gouves there are plenty of bars and Taverns the one we used for the past 2 year's is theWembley sports bar run by two great guy's Zeus and Ninos they will make you feel at home.

Room Tip: we had room 13 over the Bar when you get back from the beach in the afternoon you get the Sun on the balcony lovely size balcony.

Worst room I have ever stayed in. Dirty, dark and dingy. The bathroom was dirty, the shower didn't hang on the wall, you had to try to have a shower whilst holding it. Water was cold. Kitchen sink was dirty and smelly. If you wanted aircon that would cost you 5 euros a day. The worst thing was at night when I went to bed. Extreme itching and bitten to pieces. Dont think they were mossie bites as they didn't itch for days afterwards as mossie bites usually do. Only stayed for 2 nights, had to pay out an extra £300 to find better accommodation. There are a couple of restaurants close by and a really good bar opposite called Maria and Yannis bar but the rest are about a 20 minute walk away. Nothing close by was open for breakfast. The guys that run the place were very nice but I don't think they could have done anything to address the issues that we had with it. Would NOT recommend.
