Wonderful home from home plane to stay. Great communication from our host. Room and all facilities were delightful. Giannis was a fantastic host. Local knowledge and suggestions and sorted out any minor challenge very quickly. His referrals made our week in Crete even more special.

It was fantastic. Yanni is a great host, makes you feel very comfortable and takes care of all your concerns with a smile. Marias food was superbe and his father showed our daughter their goats and chickens and gave us grapes from their garden. The rooms are clean and really cool designed and furnished. The pool is awesome. Really big and has a separated part for small childrens. Also the breakfast was reat: you can choose between four different meals and on top Coffee, Juice, Toast and changing sweets like cakes, Croissants... To sum it up: i can highly recommend a stay at this lovely hotel. We'll bei coming back for sure!

Staying at Elia Suites and Residenses by Adonis. Formerly known as Adonis Apartments. I have stayed here before and am happy to report that the wonderful Anthonis, Maria and Yannis offer the same warm family welcome as always. With Yannis taking the helm now there is only one major change. The major redesign of the apartments. And what a change. I was aware that he was planning to modernise, but to do so while still retaining a stunning Greek feel is amazing. It looks fantastic. Bravo Yannis!! This is without a doubt the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. And I am no spring chicken! Will be back again and again....

Absolutely amazing time here for the 2nd year running. If you're looking for somewhere that gives a warm welcome with amazing hospitality and a feeling that you're at home then this is the place to stay. These are family run apartments and that is what draws us back every year. Maria, Adonis and Yannis are amazing and do their upmost to make you feel welcome to make sure your stay is as pleasant as possible. Nothing is too much bother and they really can't do enough for you. Rooms are immaculately clean, with amzing views of Gouves. Pool area is clean and there are always plenty of sunbeds. Although Gouves is a small place there are plenty of bars and restaurants just a 5 minute walk away including the lovely sandy beach. Can't wait to come back here next year as we know that we will have another amazing holiday!!

This is the best place I've ever stayed in Greece. The rooms were spacious and clean with balcony areas both at the rear and front. The pool area was extremely well maintained but the highlight of our stay was meeting Maria and her family who couldn't do enough to make our stay as pleasant as possible. She is also an amazing chef and cooks the best omelettes ever. Will definitely be returning here, so friendly and relaxing.

Recently stayed at Adonis Apartments for a 2 week family holiday & absolutely loved it! Apartments are spacious 1 bedroomed & spotlessly clean. Great location in Gouves, although it is a quiet resort... supermarket, bars & shops within 5 minute walk of the apartments. We travelled as a family/group all adults & everyone loved it. The bar/restaurant area at the apartments opens from 9am until 6pm serving a selection of food & drinks which is really handy if you are having a lazy day by the pool. The most important thing about these apartments are the family themselves! Atonis, Maria & Yiannis are super helpful, very friendly & really can't do enough for you. I feel like I've known them for years! Absolutely lovely people along with all the other guests (many repeaters) who were all equally as nice. It was like one BIG extended family by the end of our stay. Thanks again for making our stay perfect. Date of stay: June 2019

We visited Adonis apartments in June, stayed for 7 nights. Stayed here as the pool area looked quiet and with plenty of space, we had walked past the apartments on a previous visit to Gouves. Rooms are clean and with refurbished bathrooms, small kitchen too. Pool area is great, no fighting for sunbeds at any time of day. The only reason I could not give this review 5* is because of the noise from the nearby road. Don't let this put you off, its not constant noise. In my opinion, Adonis apartments would suit families with small kids and couples. The owners Maria and Adonis are really nice people and make you very welcome. Their son son even run us up to the airport on departure :-) We said we'd return, and we will, sometime. Gouves is a lovely quiet laid back small place with some terrific restaurants and a number of small beaches. You can catch a bus (100m from apartments) to the larger towns of Hersonnisos and Malia for shopping and buzzing nightlife. To sum up..........a lovely relaxing holiday

We stayed here for a week in September. We arrived at about 10.30pm and night and we rang the buzzer and we were greeted by one of the owners called Adonis. He was so warm and friendly. We were taken straight to our apartment and shown the place. Lovely and clean, simple and just perfect for a chill out. 10 minutes later there was a knock on the door and he gave us fresh grapes off his vine. The next day we met Maria his wife and she was equally as nice and helpful. The pool was close to our apartment and was clean and great for cooling down. From this location you are a 15 minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes to the nearest restaurant. There are 2 supermarkets about 10 minutes walk. The pool was never busy and there was always enough sun beds. Great wee find and we will be back👍

We happened on these apartments by chance we had been invited to a wedding and at short notice needed somewhere to stay, as it was high season and the bank holiday the flights were very expensive so we were on a budget! I booked the Adonis with no great expectations as it was very inexpensive and thought well we just need somewhere to crash!!! What a little gem this place is! Whilst yes the apartment is basic and the aircon leaves a lot to be desired these are small problems when you have such a welcome and helpful hosts, nothing is too much trouble even going to the point of taking us to the wedding venue and dropping us at the airport and printing off the boarding passes!! The place is spotless and the whole place is quiet friendly and welcoming, for anyone wanting a quiet friendly and relaxing break you couldn’t do better than the Adonis!
