We visited twice in 2019 and we were back again in june 2022. We loved it so much we've already booked for October 2022 and this time we are coming with some family members to show them this amazing place. From the initial welcome to the day we left we were made to feel special. Olga, Dimitri, Natalie, Nikola and the cleaners were all so friendly and helpful. Apartments , surrounding areas, garden, swimming pool were all spotless, clean and tidy. Natalie does a great breakfast! Nikola who works the bar in the evenings is an interesting man and it was great to welcome him and get to know him a bit more. It was close to our favourite restaurant, Paradise and our favourite bar, Maria Yannis and lots of other bars and restaurants close by. We cant wait to return in October and show our family this incredible place. Dimitri and Olga, thanks so much for our incredible holiday... see you again in a few months x

We have just returned home from 19 days in Villa Marie Kelly, as always the apartments are spotless and very spacious, Natalie is a fantastic cook and is always ready for a chat. Nikola is there to look after you in the bar in an evening and we spent many an hour getting to know this genuinely lovely man. There is so much to do in Crete, there are many bars and tavernas around the complex. I would recommend staying here to anyone who wants to visit Gouves, you will not find such a relaxed atmosphere and you will want to return time again. Thanks you to Olga and Demitri for making us feel so welcome, we have already booked again for next year. x

We really loved our stay in these very clean and convenient apartments with small bar area and great pool- would recommend it to anyone but when planning your budget you need to allow 50 euro per room for aircon and 15 euros to use the safe Plus tourists tax . We didn’t eat in the hotel but drinks and snacks very reasonably priced and the beer was ice cold ! The location is great - short transfer from local airport - shops, beach,cafes and eateries all close by

This was our 2nd visit to Villa Marie Kelly and again it was amazing. We stayed in a studio apartment on a self catering basis and it had everything we needed, we did pay extra for the air conditioning and it was worth every penny. We had breakfast a couple of times at the hotel made by the amazing Natalie and was tasty and just what you needed to get you started in the morning. There are plenty of sun loungers around the pool area and no need to get up before the sun to get one. The bar is by the pool and was handy during the day for a cold drink or in the evening for mor drinks. There are a number of restaurants and bars in the area that we tried and never had a bad experience. There was a friendly atmosphere at this hotel and even though we only got back last night and have already booked for next year

We stayed at Marie Kelly in May 2022. First time back since the pandemic. the rooms and facilities were cleaned to a high standard every day. The swimming pool is cold but beautifully clean and clear. Loads of sun beds available to use. The bar is run in the day time by the wonderful Natalie. She is bubbly friendly and a tremendous cook. Really lovely lady. Evening is run by new barman Nikos who is really nice and quick to get the drinks ready. He stays open until the last guest goes to bed (us on one occasion lol). The owners of this family run apartments are Olga and Demetri they are so welcoming and hospitable. The service they provided were second two none. We have already booked for September this year and can’t wait to go back and see our friends again. Surrounding the Marie Kelly you will find everything you need. Supermarket a big bar called Central’s that is brilliant and lots of tavernas. We frequented Scorpio’s taverna lots of times wonderful food and atmosphere, it is run by Sophia and Yanni who are so friendly and welcoming. The beach is nearby really clean and Sandy with a lifeguard present. Totally recommend the Marie Kelly and Gouves Ares.
