Fabulous holiday in a beautiful place!
We travelled as a family of 5 to this lovely spacious apartment, having booked expecting our older son to come too - there would have been space for him! We put two kids in the twin bedded room, and the third on a mattress on the floor in between. The older one would have had to sleep on a sofa bed in the lounge. Only the 2 bathrooms are a bit small, but really that is of little consequence.
The apartment was clean and well equipped (proper fridge, freezer, cooker etc, and a good selection of cooking equipment). We had a problem on the last day of our stay when the door of the washing machine wouldn't open, with our washing stuck inside, but both the agent and Pon (the owner) were really helpful, and got it sorted out quickly and with as little hassle as you could expect. We also had a lovely welcome pack of a few essentials when we arrived, and Pon phoned not long after we arrived to check that everything was ok which was a nice touch.
The view from the back balcony is over the pool, an olive grove, the small town of Almyrida and then out to sea - fabulous! The apartment is one of about 7 sharing the pool, (it is the best of all of them we thought) and even though at times during our holiday it was quite busy (obviously it was school holidays), it never felt frustrating. The only thing which was a bit annoying was that there are no 'general' sun loungers at the pool, so the ones from the apartment need to be carried down the stairs for use by the pool. However, lots of days we left them there and brought them back later on. The view from the front is also fine and quiet, and catches the sun later in the evening which is nice.
The apartment is about 5 minutes walk to the town and the beach. Almyrida is lovely and pretty unspoilt. It has a butcher, several small supermarkets, a baker and lots of tavernas, but is not at all noisy or crowded. If you want clubs, discos and exciting nightlife you need to look somewhere else! You don't need a car to stay here, but we hired one for a few days in order to see some other parts of Crete, which we really enjoyed.
All in all, this was a great place to be and a wonderful holiday. My only reservation about this review is hoping that so many other people don't want to go there that we can't get in next year!
Great apartment with fantastic views and pool
We had a fantastic stay in Pon’s lovely apartment (number 5) which is in a lovely quiet spot but still handy for the beautiful sandy beach. The apartment, pool and garden area were all clean, tidy and well kept. The Wi-fi was reliable and the speed really good. We enjoyed soaking up the sun on the spacious balcony with the pool pretty much at the bottom of the steps for a cool off dip. Shared between six apartments the pool was rarely busy. Almyrida is a smallish but for us a nicely sized location with plenty of good restaurants. We especially enjoyed Dimitris and Erotokritos. A must for any diver is the elephant cave dive which I did with Omega divers which was amazing. All in all we had a lovely time and would definitely like to return in the not too distant future.
Clean tidy and very spacious
Lovely veiws with sandy beaches in a lively bay
Supper Family hioliday
We had a wonderfull relaxing holiday in Pon Logan’s Apartment.
The apartment was super clean, well equipped and very comfortable with beautiful views of Sea from the back balcony and a Mountain view from the front balcony to enjoy over the bay.
The private exclusive Balconies with all out door entertainment furniture’s are great.
Our children, aged 13 and 14, spent a lot of time in the pool and my husband and I enjoyed the beach and many tavernas just a 5 to 10 minute walk away from the Apartment.
The location of the apparent is perfect, not too far from the beach and not too close to the main road.
The pool was quiet most of the time, and the grounds of the small complex were well kept and quiet.
People who are looking to spend nice time in a nice town with children, this apartment is a good option.
The owner was very helpful, providing all the information we needed to prepare for the trip.
The location is suitable for bus trips to Chania or car trips to many of the local points of interest. All in all, a great family holiday, and we would definitely go again.
Thank you for a super holiday
PEACE AND QUIET
Spotlessly clean, really comfy bed, very spacious apartment in a fabulous location, just minutes from beach by Tsunami bar, tavernas and shops. Great views too. Only problem was how to avoid the World Cup!
Lovely Holiday in Almyrida 10/6/18 to 19/6/2018
A lovely 2 bedroom apartment with plenty of room both inside and outside. The apartment is spotlessly clean and well maintained. There's is a swimming pool which has easy access from your own apartment.We spent most evenings sitting outside on the spacious balcony enjoying the beautiful views of the blue sea and the mountains. It is a short walk from the apartment to the town where there are many shops and tavernas. We ate at several restaurants and enjoyed our meal each
time. The local people we met were friendly and helpful. We hired a car and visited the many lovely beaches in the area. We would definitely return to this lovely apartment in Almyrida.
