This is a lovely apartment complex. We booked a two bedroom apartment for 2 adults and 2 kids aged 6 and 9; it was really spacious and spotlessly clean. The photos show the property as it really is. The pool was great and our kids spent a lot of time in there! Staff friendly and helpful. It was quiet too. Location-wise it is very central, but i would say that a hire car is necessary if you want to get around the island. We flew to Chania and it was less than an hour's drive to the apartment. Heraklion would be convenient enough too. You can walk to the beach and there are a number of tavernas within walking distance; i'd especially recommend one called 'Eleven' which is right on the beach. Great for couples and families looking to relax-not for those wanting to party as it is away from nightlife (which suited us just fine).
