We stayed here just one night whilst backpacking round Western Crete and wish we could have stayed longer. We received a very friendly welcome and were shown to a spotlessly clean room with small kitchen area which we didn't use but it would have been perfectly adequate for basic cooking had we been staying longer.There was a balcony with table...

Very clean room, a lot of facilities. Very nice and helpful staff. There was a tasty bagels in the room. The hotel is in the distance from the tavernas so the place is very quite. Only one bad thing was mosquito in the room at night.

Stayed 9 nights in April and we felt immediately attached to this community. Mirko and Dara make perfect hosts. Their hard work ensures place is kept spotless but they still find time for a chat or to help out where necessary. We had a good sized room on top floor with a sunny (morning) balcony. Basic cooking stove but very... More

It was our first time in Sougia / Hotel Aretousa. Mirko and his wife are very helpful, the rooms are super clean and will be cleaned daily. We had a room with a small kitchen which is good for preparing breakfast or small dishes. It is 3 minutes to the beach, and to restaurants and cafes. Each room has a... More

June in the Aretousa is like visiting my family abroad! Sun and exemplary service - comfort, space and the best beach in Crete! Mirko and Dara are wonderful hosts - nothing is too much trouble! The raki is fiery and the sun sublime! Thanks!

We liked our stay at Aretousa a lot - Mirko and Dara, who were taking care of the guests, were great! The accomodation is all you need for a beach vacation - clean beds, balcony, kitchenette facilities..It is approx. 3-5 mins walk from the long sandy beach and the area is very quiet. The taverns and mini-markets are also 3... More

We stayed at Aretousa Studios for a couple of nights because we hiked along Samaria Gorge. It was in a great location - only a short walk to the beach, seaside restaurant strip and bus stop. Our room and bathroom were quite small - but it was really great value. Dara, the host was very friendly and helpful.

No more no less than expected. Aretousa is not a seaside resort, but having stayed in such hotels I prefer this. If you do not mind to walk some 400 m. to the beach you can have the advantage of not being exausted by the tavernas music and noise, which are companions to the near sea appartments. The business is... More
