We were the only people staying at the apartments and Costas was a generous host - he was always in reception when we went out and came back from trips. The beaches and archeology are wonderful - I would recommend staying.

Cannot go wrong with this place and we keep coming back for more! We feel very at home in the villa as it has all the comforts you could need. The village is full of lovely people, especially Yiorgo at Koxilia Taverna and Dimitri at Dimitri's Taverna. And hardly a cloud in the sky. We'll be back!

Restaurants and bars - plenty of choice within a short walk. Supermarket within walking distance and also Lidl near the petrol station on the approach to Sitia (car required). Only very minor comment would be the lack of a shower screen or curtain made it slightly awkward having a shower without drowning the floor but this was a minor detail and we would still rate this apartment as excellent!
