Lovely Greek family run hotel next to the beach - very un-touristy spot and quite at night. Perfect for unwinding for some days, Close to bus stop to Heraklion. Would visit again. Location: directly at the beach next to 2 other small hotels. Does not feel very touristy and is very quite at night. Hotel is abt 7 min walk from the road where you can catch the bus to Heraklion and the airport. Taxi from airport ca EUR 22. Rooms: very spacious rooms with nice modern touches and very good beds. Rooms have balcony w possible to dry swimsuits as well as a fridge. Restaurant: there is a terrace just in front of the hotel on the beach. Lovely place to sit and have breakfast and look at the sea. Breakfast is very nice with some Greek specialties. Beach: just in from of the hotel with chairs and umbrellas for free for guests. Beach can be a bit windy.

Not far from the airport, very close to the hotel private beach.. perfect, for few days. Rooms are big enough, and clean. Good bedding. Due to covid, rooms are cleaned every 2 or 3 days, but if you need a new towel, don't hesitate to ask them. The management even left me the room till the afternoon of the day of my departure. The staff are welcoming. Always smiling and attentive. Good customer relations. Good value for money,wether in terms of the room, the restaurant and the drinks. If one thing is missing is "rosé wine"

We rented the room with a panoramic view at the top and right away felt like at home. Christo was warm and welcoming as well as Vasili. The food at the restaurant on the beach was simple but very tasty. They grow their own vegetables so it's all very fresh. Our room was very clean, we had trouble with the air conditioning so we ended up in another room that was just as clean and spacious. We spent three days there because we liked the location and the staff so much.

Very friendly owner and staff. A pleasure to talk to Xristos, Vasilis and the crew. Great location, you can reach Heraklyon by bus, but you need a car if you want to visit this beautiful and interesting island. Glad to be back in Greece after 34 years and again to find friendly and nice people. Hope to go back and spend more time at Aptera. Good food and is not bad at all to have the meals on the terrace by the beach.
