Featuring an outdoor swimming pool and snack bar, Kleanthi Apartments offers apartments with a balcony. It is located 500 metres from the nearest beach in Kato Gouves in Crete. Free Wi-Fi is offered in public areas. All apartments feature a kitchenette with dining area, fridge and electric kettle. The bathroom comes with a shower. This hotel is a favorite with returning guests, so it's definitely doing something right. The main selling point seems to be its location. Just a ten-minute walk from the center of Gouves, it's not right in the heart of the action but it's close enough. The apartments themselves are what you'd expect from a budget Greek hotel - simple and comfy. Kleanthi Apartments is 18 km from the city of Heraklion with its Archeological Museum and the archaeological site of Knossos. Guests can visit the lively town of Limenas Chersonisou, 9 km away. Heraklion International Airport is 15 km away.

Kieanthi and Nikos make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive . The accommodation consists of 14 studios/apartments built over 3 stories and they have been refurbished recently to a very good standard. Our apartment was 304 on the top floor .It had superb views . overlooking olive groves in one direction and towards the sea from the other.It is about 15 minutes walk to the beach,restaurants shops etc,and there is a bus stop 5 minutes away. In one direction you have Heraklion and in the other Hersonisos,Malia,Analipsi etc..The bedding and towels are regularly changed and the rooms kept spotless by the always cheerful Vespina..The pool area is surrounded by a hedge of flowers and the sunbeds are padded and comfortable.The bar is fairly well stocked and Kleanthi is always available to provide home cooked food .Very often she will come out with a few extras as she always cooks for Nikos and her 3 lovely granddaughters..The barbeque nights are a must....We stayed for a month ,mid May til mid June and it was all that we had hoped it would be .Quiet ,relaxing ,friendly and very Greek..We met some lovely people there,many of them return time after time and we can see why.....Would we return if we go back to Gouves?......DEFINATELY...Efharisto Kleanthi and Nikos..

Kleanthi and Nikos made us feel very welcome in their apartment. It has everything you need for a quiet, relaxing beach holiday. Freshly decorated for 2022! Spotlessly clean and comfortable, and nothing is too much trouble for the owners. The local beach at Kato is only a short walk away. Food is available throughout the day, freshly cooked by Kleanthi at extremely reasonable prices, and there is also a pool if you're in need of a dip to cool down. I would suggest that most of the people that stay here are couples, who go back time and time again. Nikos cooks up a great BBQ, so much food and very tasty, where the residents can meet up for an enjoyable evening. There is room to park a car if you decide to hire one and aircon is also available upon request. The fact the most of the visitors to the apartments are on repeat visits, says it all!

Once again we had the great fortune to stay with Nikos and mama for the complete month of May 2022. You would think after that time we would have been keen to get home. Not a bit of it In fact like a few ppl that booked flights and had the flights cancelled at last moment our return flight took off on time As always we were treated royally and fully enjoyed our time with them and we are looking forward to August when we can return to them again The prices are exceptional and good food is available at anytime. Thanks to Nikos and the whole family for a great holiday Yammas

Have just returned from another stay in Gouves. This was I think our 10th time staying at Kleanthi in 7 years...people say is that not a bit boring,going to the same place time after time? We used to think the same, however what we now know about Kleanthis and Gouves is as follows- it is only about 15 minutes from the Airport..no long transfers..about €25 in a taxi. 30 minutes after landing sometimes you can be sitting in one of the many lovely Tavernas in Gouves drinking your favourite tipple whilst reviewing the Menu for Lunch or Dinner. So long as you speak to the Taverna / Restaurant/ Bar / Cafe owners or Staff you will be made most welcome. Learn a few Greek words which will make them smile as you attempt to pronounce them, they will respond accordingly. Nikos and Kleanthi who run the apartments are the most obliging and lovely people you will find, when we leave it is always like saying goodbye to family, they are indeed our family in the sun. Should you wish to, you can laze round the Pool all day, the Beach is about 20 minutes walk away, hire a car and use Gouves as your base, hop on the excellent local bus service to Heraklion or Hersonnisos, only a few Euros, get blooteredevery night and sleep all day...in Crete you do what you wish, when you wish. The food is amazing...Kleanthi herself makes probably the best Meat Balls in the world...just part of her repertoire...Nikos does a mean BBQ a couple of times a week...watch out fir the Raki though! Many great Tavernas within walking distance, all offering great food and drink options to suit all pockets and tastes. The Apartments have everything you may need to Self Cater should that be your preference, Rooms include Bedroom,Kitchen area, Kettle, Toaster, Hob, Shower Room, some recently renovated. All very clean, think Towels changed every 2 days. During our visits we often bump into other returning Guests...we cannot all be wrong! We try to keep the place secret so we can get a Room when needed but we know the hard times Crete, Nikos and Kleanthi have been through the last few years so are pleased to publicise and share our tranquil hideaway with you and hope you too enjoy Gouves and will consider staying at these lovely Apartments.

This place is an absolute gem! Our 3rd visit and it just gets better. Lovely new, modern bathrooms since our last visit. What makes it so special are the owners - Nikos and Kleanthi. Nothing is too much trouble. A welcome barbeque for all the guests, a Greek night with delicious food, cooked by Kleanthi - a wonderful way to get to know the other guests. It has a secluded pool and pool bar with plenty of sunbeds. Lots of returning guests so they must be doing something right! Oh and Nikos will also pick you up from the airport! Do yourself a favour and book a holiday here. You'll feel like family.

Stayed in an apartment for 3 facing the sea on the top floor. With such amazing sunsets from the balcony. The apartment was so modern with an amazing bathroom with a double headed shower head. They must have been recently modernised. Swimming pool at the back with very comfy padded sunloungers in a beautiful garden surrounding. Pool bar with a fab selection of drinks and food available throughout the day made and served by the wonderful Kleanthi. Nikos her son runs the apartments and with himself and his family, they make you feel so welcome and part of the family. They also host a BBQ night which the food is amazing and so tasty. A must for all.... Would highly recommend the Kleanthi Apartments and Studios to anyone and will definitely be returning. Thank you and best wishes Nikos and all the family

Had a lovely stay at Kleanthi apartments for 2 weeks in September. The apartments are spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Free wifi throughout. The apartments have a really nice, small pool out back and a few sun loungers to relax on. The food is very impressive if ordering at the pool bar. The family are very friendly and helpful, especially Nikos and his mother Kleanthi, it was always nice to chat and to pass the time of day. I'll certainly return if i'm in Gouves again.

It's the lovely warm welcome that you remember about your stay at the Kleanthi Apartments. Kleanthi and Nikos are the perfect hosts and cannot do enough for you during your stay. They really make you feel like part of the family. The apartments are light, bright and airy, recently renovated and are spotlessly clean. They are set a little way away from the main resort area however the beach and tavernas and shops are only a short walk away and it's very peaceful and relaxing. I would definitely stay again.

Just returned from the Kleanthi which was booked after reading all the good reviews and I have to say we weren’t disappointed. From the start Kleo and Nikos were great hosts, helpful, warm and friendly especially during uncertain times. The whole place was absolutely spotless, the apartment was cleaned every other day with regular towel and sheet changes. Although the apartments were quiet due to the current climate they still managed to put on two BBQ nights which were brilliant, lots of lovely food, drinks and laughter. We wanted to relaxing holiday and that’s exactly what we got. We can understand why people return every year and would certainly like to visit again sometime in the future.
