We have just returned from ourania apartments in gouves Crete . We were greeted by one of the staff and the security guard who helped us to our rooms , it was a very late arrival and they helped us with giving information of where we could get some food . The apartments were very spacious and the cleaning throughout the 2 weeks was excellent . The grounds were kept in tip top condition and the pool cleaned every evening . All staff were attentive , friendly , polite and helpful . The food from the pool bar was reasonably priced and of good quality .which served food up to 10 pm .The pool table token was €1 which closed at 12 to avoid disturbing people that may have settled up . The bar closed at 1 am and had a good selection of drinks . There were two sports screens on in the bar area . Pool side toilets were always clean . Courtesy showers were spacious and clean and in new area of the apartments . Plenty of sun loungers and space to relax . Trees and umbrellas gave lovely shade . Short 5-10 minute walk to the sea front with restaurants and bars . We went in a group of 7 and we all had a lovely time . The area and apartments felt safe for families .

We stayed at the Ourania apartments from the 7th August for 11 nights.
We were 2 families of 4. (We stayed in room 106 with our 2 sons, 14yrs and 12yrs).

We were absolutely thrilled to bits to find apartments that offer so much!
The apartments are typically Greek in design.
Basic but extremely spacious. The cleaners change both bins and towels regularly.

Aircon for the bedroom and living area is a must! It’s heaven walking into a cooled apartment when it’s so hot outside!

There are plenty of sun beds to go around.
Both directly around the pool, (with parasols), and covering the surrounding grass area amongst the trees.

A short walk from the apartment, in varying directions, are supermarkets and taverna’s.
We ate somewhere different most nights, but visited Milo’s twice.
(The food and setting was just perfect!)

What really makes the apartments though, are the bar service and staff!!
The bar provides breakfast, lunch and evening meals, should you wish.
We ate from the bar a couple of evenings following 2 long day trips out.
We also enjoyed many breakfasts and lunches from the bar.
The food is delicious, reasonable and plentiful!

During the day you can even buy ice creams/lollies/crisps/nuts/chocolate etc.

The pool table is a great asset!
Children and adults, alike, enjoyed many games. Either during the day to get a break from the sun, or during the evening.
Tokens are purchased from the bar and respectfully left on the side of the pool table to signify who’s turn was next.

The bar staff changed from day shift to night shift.
They are friendly but respectful. They became very familiar with any regular orders, and were attentive but not too overbearing.

One thing to note was how loud the Cicadas are!!
Sounds silly, but because the apartments are surrounded by olive trees etc, they are SO loud!!
We were used to hearing them in Greece, but it did take us a few days to get used to them!!

Overall, we all had a fabulous holiday and felt extremely lucky to have found the Ourania apartments.

We had a really nice apartment with its own little garden. We stayed bed and breakfast, the breakfast was cooked to order by staff who were lovely. There were plenty of sun beds available and we were always able to get one when we wanted. There was also a grassed areas where we could relax in the shade of the trees, away from the heat of the sun. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the resort was well cared for with well tended gardens.
We rarely go to the same place twice but we’re we to go to Gouves we would definitely stay at the Ourania.

After seeing such good reviews we booked. Not impressed ,yes it was clean and we knew it was typical greek that's fine but omg the aeroplanes were relentless we counted one morning between 5am and 7am 19 and they fly low . The apartment was a shared stairway so our terrace was not that private had to go out the front door to use it when we actually could as no shade canopy or umbrella so it was full sun most the day.The apartment was so dark as just had small windows very cave like . The living room was massive but pointless as only a very uncomfortable cement bench thing with old cusion on it not even a back cusion . Had to put lights on or open the door to get any light . Bedroom massive but again dark aircon was poor and if you want to use both aircons bedroom and lounge you had to pay for another one. Bathroom was flooded even time used and soap suds just came back up the drain in the middle Needs updating . Breakfast was 9-12 only don't be early ! If you have trips booked your missing it . You choose from menu cooked breakfast was good but we can get this here . No fruit to go with yougart I bought my own everyday no pastry or anything greek. Pool was packed at one point you couldn't see the water for inflatables loungers were uncomfortable saggy and old even our umbrella was broken , moved to grass and shade of trees but the ants were murder my drink was full of ants as no tables or anything to put drinks on. Didn't use the pool again.

Room tip: Buses were good
