Let the toils of life pass you by and the healing begins in this friendly resort. The charming staff can't do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Located on the coast along a quiet road, this oasis of Cretan magic and hospitality will make you want to return time and again!

The Golden Bay apartments exceed all of my wishes. After a 15...
