10/10 Exceptional

Amazing place!
Love this place! The apartments are clean and functional and the air con works perfect. The resort is nice and small and there is always room around the pool. Andreas and his family are very attentive and eager to help if they can - they printed all our covid paperwork for our return trip without charge. Great location 15 minutes from Chania old town by bus (number 21 bus). Beach is a stone's throw away too.

Second visit, just as good.
Second year coming here and just as good. We have a different apartment this time but it is equally well equipped. Aircon works well and there is a nice area out the front of the apartment with tables and chairs. Service is great as usual, and the pool is perfect!

Quiet, Comfortable, Nice and Small
Wow, what a place. Tucked out of the way but just 5 minutes walk from an amazing beach, within 2 minutes of a bus stop (take bus 21 to get in to Chania) and supermarkets right outside the complex. We took the Maisonette apartment, which has a bedroom, bathroom (with shower) and balcony upstairs, kitchenette (with Hob, Grill and Oven and Fridge), 2 sofas/beds and TV downstairs. Outside is a small seating area. Fully working Air Conditioning both upstairs and downstairs. The pool is not too big but very deep and warm. Small bar where you can buy a range of drinks and snacks - at reasonable prices. Andreas and his Wife are excellent! Cleaners cleaned every day. I cannot fault this place and look forward to visiting again.

we were made most welcome
We had a great 8 night stay. The staff were very friendly, it’s in a great location and we were lucky to have an apartment with 2 balconies, one for the morning sun and one for the afternoon. The place was cleaned to a very high standard.

Great place to stay!
We love this place! The family atmosphere is fun and relaxing and you are minutes away from a couple of beaches or a quick ride into the city center.

Quiet and comfortable
Great little family run apartment hotel. We felt comfortable and safe there. Our little kitchen was great for breakfast and to make morning coffee. There was a nice eating area, patio and living room. We only put our feet in the pool but it was nice too. The host was so nice and welcoming and offered great advice on the area. We walked to the old city each day.
