I’ve never seen so many stars!

  • 5 of 5

One of the winning features of this apartment is the roof top terrace. It’s the perfect place to admire the beauty and drama of the mountains, the sea and starry sky at night- look out for Mars and Jupiter too!

We had an amazing holiday here and really didn’t want it to end.

The resort is so well looked after and the staff, Aretti and Antony, were lovely, always happy to help. The apartment is perfect - it has everything you need.

We decided to hire a car in the end which was the right decision. We’ve never been put off by walking everywhere but this resort is very secluded and there isn’t even a mini-market in walking distance (unless you want a long walk!) You can hire bikes and they run a taxi service but we really enjoyed the freedom of having the car and exploring different beaches - our favourite was Kale Nero - quiet and amazing for snorkelling.

Makrygialos is a lovely little town and we stayed two weeks and wasn’t able to do it all! We’d recommend Mina’s fish Place at the end of the harbour - best fish ever! You can’t come here and not go to the Dragon’s cave (we went twice) - it is worth the walk from Lagada bay - those lamb ‘chomps’ are to die for!

Best apartment on the complex - thank you Stephen and Michelle, we thoroughly enjoyed our escape to Crete and would definitely come again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your great review. We love the roof terrace too, great for sunbathing during the day, BBQs in the evenings and star gazing at night. We are always happy to hear our guests have enjoyed their stay at our little 'home from home'. We look forward to welcoming you back to Makrygialos and our apartment on your next visit to Crete. Best wishes Michelle & Stephen

Great apartment and resort. Ideal base for exploring this part of Crete.

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped lovely apartment in a great resort. Beaches nearby are excellent and the town of Makrygialos has plenty of choice for tavernas on the beach. The harbour is also very nice whilst there are great mountain/gorge walks. Would thoroughly recommend this resort.

Fabulous apartment and complex.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in this superb complex. The staff were outstandingly helpful. The apartment was of the highest quality in every way. The front and back balconies and roof terrace outstanding. Lots of extras to make our stay just perfect. The view from the roof terrace in the evening over the sea and mountains was a delight. The pool area and gardens were exquisite and we often had them all to ourselves. We enjoyed our visits to some of the local villages and walks. We loved the gorge walk near the monastery - tough going but worth the effort - and seeing the goats was a bonus. Makry Gialos was quiet and pleasant during the week, but busy at weekends. In summary we had a wonderful week here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our apartment and explored the surrounding areas, we like the gorge walks also - especially when we see the goats; often in the caves for the shade. We look forward to welcoming you back anytime. Best wishes.

Wow what a roof terrace !

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything, with seating areas on front and back balconies and roof terrace. Comfortable bedroom, plenty of storage. Large sea facing balcony and the only apartment with an awning for shade. The owners provide pool towels and a collection of parasols & cool bags for the beach. The best feature is the private roof terrace with fabulous views of sea and mountains, comfortable furnishings, electric BBQ and fridge. Also there is a good range of plastic tableware for the outdoor lifestyle. Would highly recommend - we will definitely return.

All you need!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived pretty late but Areti waited to greet us to show us to our apartment! Waking the next day after a comfortable sleep the view was just beautiful! Apartment is very clean, well maintained, compact and has everything you need and more! We stayed in occasionally and cooked our own meals with some lovely wine from local shops. We hired a car and took off to explore the island! The beach was also a hit with soft sand and clear shallow waters with little fishes darting around your feet. Owners had left a handbook with recommended restaurants which was extremely helpful! We would almost certainly go back and would definitely recommend! Could have so easily stayed another week. Owners were also very good with all correspondence whilst we were booking etc. Many thanks, we had a superb holiday!

Lagada Resort is situated in South East Crete, 2km outside the quaint and beautiful village of Makrygialos, with panoramic sea views and wonderful mountain backdrop. Short walk to the unspoilt beach of Lagada and a further 10 minutes walk to the nearest beach taverna in the adjacent bay of Diaskari. The resort is south west facing and you will experience stunning sunsets from your balcony or private roof terrace. Makrygialos means ‘long beach’ which is blue flag accredited and perfect for young children. Although quiet & peaceful you will find a variety of bars and tavernas serving freshly caught fish and local specialities.

Also in the village there are a number of supermarkets and patisserie with a delicious range of bread and cakes. The area is especially suited to couples and families who are looking for a relaxing time.

The surrounding area is perfect for walks, mountain-biking, fishing or just relaxing on the many beaches this unspoilt area of Crete has to offer.
