The apartments and studio are basic but have everything you need for a nice holiday, we cooked using the small table top hobs, it worked well! The place is well kept and clean and the garden area and pool are lovely, there is also a small covered children’s play area with outdoor toys. We stayed for 10 days in a studio room with a big safe balcony on first floor. It had 3 beds and just enough room for a cot, the apartments are more spacious. The snack bar is useful and there is a small supermarket a few minutes away. The property is 5 minutes walk from the beach and 8 minutes walk from the bigger supermarket and another beach, both beaches had quite a rough sea when we stayed in September.You can easily walk to the bakery and nearby Tavernas and bars. Overall this is a lovely, friendly family run place that I recommend.
Ok where do I start. Location 5 out 5. 100 steps to the beach, small quiet location next to 2 stunning tavernas who serve amazing food, Sofia at scorpios and the taverna next to that. All steps from Andreas aptmts. Gouves is 20 mins from the airport, which by the way is only 30 euros in a taxi so dont bother waiting hours for an overpriced transfer. Heres the nitty gritty, excellent snack bar, good little pool, friendly staff. But it is budget 2 star our room stank for 3 days we used the pool communal toilet until then chlorinated our rooms pics. If you want big standard basic room just somewhere ro lay your head but great location this is it. Ps if your travelling with on the beach check and double check your transfer pick up points.
we had a fantastic family holiday... from the moment we arrived we were well looked after... Our resort was family run and they were the nicest people you could wish to meet... always friendly,helpful,chatty and extremely hard working.
we had a 1 bedroom apartment and 2 beds in the lounge/kitchen area..really happy with the size and was cleaned on a regular basis and given fresh towels.
the pool was a nice size and the beach was only 50mtrs down the road.
Lovely restaurants nearby with friendly staff...
we caught the bus to Heraklion and had a lovely day, so we went back one evening for a meal...perfect.
i would highly recommend coming on holiday here, we loved it!!
Andreas apartments or “villa Andreas” is a quiet and peaceful set of rooms near the beach with a cheap and friendly bar/ snack bar at the front. The furniture is old fashioned but sturdy and quirky and there is a real sense of relaxation from the quiet and clean pool/ sunbathing area to the friendly staff and fancy drink toppers. The air con is €50 for the week but worthwhile as it works very well and helps cool down on an evening. There is daily room service (excluding sundays) and the caretakers are also very friendly and useful. Overall a very clean, friendly and relaxing experience.
Myself the hubby & 3 kids where here in September couldn't fault it one bit very clean all family run whom are all extremely friendly & welcoming, foods great facilities great 2min walk from the beach bars shops, an were booked up to return next year :-) ...only thing i would suggest is door signs if you didn't want your room cleaned on that day or for a bit of privacy..found it impossible to get baby for a nap with cleaners coming in an if you say no thanks just clean towels they don't listen lol also if we had arrived back from somewhere and they where in the room we had to hang around outside for ages till we could get in our room an with 3 children it wasn't ideal, so a wee do not disturb door sign would be ideal id see the point if they had been stripping beds everyday but they wernt.(only a suggestion like)
