Lovely welcome. The facilities were perfect. The service were top class. The staff is very friendly, smiling and helpful. The reception (Maria) arranged a trip to a wine yard for us which our travel agency didn't managed to do. The hygiene is perfect, a+. The food, super delicious. The place and the staff should have 10 stars out of 5. I will bring my son next time we come here. It is highly recommended from us. Louise and Emma, Denmark.

We have just returned from a very relaxing week at these apartments. We stayed in the maisonette annex adjacent to the hotel and it had a large terrace with sunloungers and a great view of the bay. Everyone who works at the hotel were very friendly and breakfast was great. Lovely room service. It was very clean and comfortable. Really short walk to all of the localy taverans and bars. Would happily recommend and would love to return.

Amazing place with great employees. On a 5 minute from the beach and all the cute restaurants at that beach. Placement is really amazing, overlooking the whole bay. Check in was very subtle, and got offered a drink on the house while waiting for our room to be cleaned and prepared. Rooms were very clean, cleaned everyday. We had a room which was 2 steps away from the beautiful, overlooking restaurant named Bostani. Great Greek dishes, great ambience and amazing employees!! Stefanos, Jorgos and all the amazing waiters and bar personnel. Stefanos prepared us amazing cocktails whilst Jorgos remembered our special wishes so we didn’t have to tell them again. Overall the whole place is just very nice. If we ever come back to Crete, we most certainly will go back to Irida Apartments! Spijk & Irene

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this property a couple of weeks ago, and we were beyond impressed with the experience overall. The property itself is well-maintained and the public spaces are immaculate. Two pools to enjoy (the lower is child-free, I believe), an excellent restaurant, and easy proximity to beaches at Agia Pelagia or Ligaria (the latter is a little longer of a walk but well worth it to avoid the crowds of Agia Pelagia). The room we had was simple but well done with an ample balcony space. A/C worked well, fridge and kitchenette came very much in handy, and it didn't feel cramped for two people. Note that some rooms don't have quite as ideal of a location to try to see if you can book 25 or something near there. What really set this place apart was the stellar service we received from the moment we arrived. Checkin was a breeze, and every single employee was genuinely happy to provide us with whatever we needed. Truthfully, we didn't have high expectations when it came to things like poolside bar drinks, but the cocktails, especially those done by the immensely talented and helpful Stefanos, were *delicious*. He takes time to craft something for you, and it's not the same as the cheap, watered-down iterations you'll find at larger chain establishments. He, along with other members of the team, did everything they could to ensure we had a lovely stay, and we would return in a heartbeat because of it. In all, this is an affordable, well-situated, lovely place to spend a handful of days. It isn't all-out luxury, but the quality of service and ingredients used in food and beverage put it in a class above its ranking. Highly recommend, especially for couples.

Great hotel with a nice atmosphere. The staff is really nice and are willing to help with everting so you get an unforgettable holiday. Food and drinks was nice, and the bar personal really seemed to enjoy their job. Only minus was a lot of children’s families, but even there you could go to the other pool. The little town Agia Peligia was nice and had a lot of restaurants at the promenade. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which goes straight to Heraklion centrum. I can recommend walking 1 km to Ligaria beach which is less crowded and cheaper for beach chairs. All in all a very pleasant stay in Crete. Can 10/10 recommend. See you again 🇩🇰

Stayed August 2021 and not disappointed. Most of the staff are really friendly and helpful, the feel is a lovely atmosphere - nice and relaxed, the rooms are tidy and well looked after and the restaurant serves great food... Just a few niggles - the rooms are actually quite small (Side Sea View) as we couldn't really open out our luggage, the service is a little slow at dinner (maybe a staff issue) and the menu a little limited. But overall a lovely stay and the tester - yes we'd go back!

An amazing gem near to the beach... The whole staff was very friendly and attentive. Also, it worths to taste the Bostani new restaurant which is in the hotel, a nice suggestion for your dinner with Cretan atmosphere and tastes. We have booked a nice seeview apartment, the cleaningness was spotless and the design very romantic and pleasant. We are looking forward to coming back as soon as possible, and maybe for a second time for 2021..Thanks a lot for the hospitality
