A warm welcome is always guaranteed from Eva and Harry. Eva cooks lovely Cretan food and will share her cooking knowledge if you ask. It's a peaceful location but not far from amenities. Karaoke nights are fun and brings the guests together for good food and a fun night. It's great to meet people from different countries. The area is hilly so if you have walking difficulties a car is advisable. I had a lovely massage from George who Eva booked for me, he comes to the apartments. Maria looks after the rooms which are always clean and refreshing. I love this place and feel at home especially when I travel alone. Eva will advise you on places to visit if your not sure where to go, she has a great knowledge and love of her island, so is always happy to help.
We visited in September 2021 and immensely enjoyed our personalized experience at the Evalia Apartments. The owner of the hotel is dedicated to making each visit a unique and unforgettable experience for each guest. Thanks to her, we enjoyed daily homemade delicious local cuisine, sightseeing recommendations that gave us the most authentic and historic opportunities to see all that the island had to offer. The hotel offered scenic views of the Aegean sea from almost all locations with a relaxing pool and bar atmosphere that added to the romantic ambiance. We cannot wait to return.
When you stay at Evalias it is like you are staying in Evas home and you are a very welcome guest. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her team. Very impressed and would stay again. You are slightly out of the way, but only a €8 taxi fare to the centre where there is a lot happening. The walk to the beach is very nice but takes around 10-15 minutes, the walk back is slightly longer as it is up hill, but still very pleasant. We didn’t eat here, but the food looked amazing. It’s a great place to stay and feel at home.
Where else can you eat an authentic Greek meal, make friends from all over the world and then have a Greek dancing and karaoke party? Nowhere! Eva, Harry and Maria are able to make eveyone feel welcome and comfortable. The meals served at Evalia are better than most other places in the area. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable. There is a beautiful pool and the beach is within walking distance. If you have any questions about where to go or get the best whatever, Eva knows!
Amazing people! Eva and her husband Harry are really hospital, lively and warm people. They would go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and happy. We felt home during our 15 day stay. Because of the hospitality of the owners, guests connect with each other also very easily. We had one of our best holidays ever! Hotel and rooms are very clean. Our room has been cleaned and beds were made every single day. Each time we opened the door we were faced with the nice clean and fresh smell. Employees are also very friendly and helpful. We're even asked several times if we needed anything else for the room. Rooms are equipped with a kitchenette and appliances. There is a fridge, electric cooking plate, coffee machine, boiler, pan set and fork, knife, etc. There is also a TV in the rooms. Pool is nice and the pool area is relaxed. It's nice to sit there to have breakfast/lunch/dinner. I do recommend to eat here at least several times to taste real Greek food and also enjoy nice drinks later in the evening.…
If you are searching for a place to relax and feel like staying in your second home this is definitely the one and only location to go to. The hotel is clean and offers amazing views (you should also go upstairs and check out the stunning views from the rooftop terrace from where you can see the ocean and the hills)🥰. You directly notice that the owners Eva and Harry and also the employees put all their heart's blood into the hotel and its guests. Breakfast is very rich and tasty and you should also try the delicious homemade dinner prepared by Eva 😋. We would highly recommend to hire a car so that you can easily discover the nice beaches around, 5 minutes away Hersonissos which is a lively place with many restaurants (try Rustico with its amazing terrace view and fantastic food), bars and shops, old town of Hersonissos and of course other places such as mountains, monasteries, island Spinalonga etc. etc. Driving distance to Heraklion airport is only 25 minutes. We will for sure get back to that lovely place next year. The only thing that we are a bit worried about is that more people will find out about this insider tip 😉.…
I booked this place with no big expectations. I wanted something for us in a decent price range. Oh well if I had known what a great experience it was going to be ! We were 3 and I tend to be very very picky when it comes to hotels (mostly on how clean it is). We arrived earlier than we thought and I was thinking we couldn't get the room yet but it was no problem. The room was ready so Eva welcomed us and even let us choose between two rooms (how sweet ). From the moment we met her we knew the stay was goin to be very enjoyable. She is so far the most welcoming and sweet person we've seen her. She is so genuine ! She even made efforts to communicate with our mother who doesn't speak English. The lady working there was also very sweet (and she makes delicious Frappucinos !). Our only regret is to not have tried eating at the restaurant one night. But we will next time we get to come to Creete because we won't be looking at other hotels, this is the one. At Evalia everything is made to make you feel as comfortable as you would be at home ! …
Eva is an amazing host! Super nice, and always willing to help. I suggest you have at least one lunch or dinner at Evalia, because the food is well cooked, tasty, and not like the standard not-as-tasty restaurants. I was equally happy with the breakfast! Location is very quiet and nice, and although it's a bit away from the centre, you have a bus just by a few minutes walk. Totally recommended!
We had the best time! My wife Amanda and I went to Evalia’s to get married this past September. Eva, went over the top and exceeded our expectations. The hospitality and care she and the staff gave us was 10/10. The rooms are clean, comfortable and with amazing views of the sea. With breakfast in the morning and the bar at night, we cannot wait to head back to Evalia’s. Thank you!
These apartments are situated between sea and mountain views, and every aspect is different. Eva and her staff are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The food is homemade and delicious. The apartments are clean and well kept and very comfortable. Hersonissoss is only a short taxi ride away with lots of shops Tavernas and bars. Once again I would say if you need any advice just ask Eva, she knows her Island well. I can't wait to go back again.
