Christina the owner couldn't have done any more for us. We stayed for 2 nights It's at the top of the village and a 15 minute walk down to the beach or the centre. Our room was modern, spotlessly clean, with the most comfortable bed we have slept in for a long while. The breakfast, at 5 euros each was...

We were staying in the hotel only one night, but I can say I'd definitely come back. Room was nice and clean, cold drinks in the fridge, everything you'd find in 4* hotel. Breakfast really rich and tasty. Even our 3 years old son was enjoying it. Owners very nice and helpful.

The key points of this small b&b are: the sea view if you reserve a top floor room, the abundant breakfast whit some homemade dishes, and the friendly and very helpful owners who take very good care of you during you stay. This sweet family worth your stop here.

A very clean and comfortable small hotel. A little out of town, and uphill all the way. probably a walkable distance normally, but I was still suffering from walking the Samaria Gorge a couple of days before. Breakfast was enormous. I'd like to know how the owners keep their figures. One really big plus for we British was the electric...

We would highly recommend Avra Hotel. The greeting from Kristina & Michalis was warm and informative. The hotel was spotlessly clean. The room was spacious, beautifully and thoughtfully appointed, and the water stayed in the shower. Breakfast was amazing! A delectable feast is brought to your table. It was difficult to know where to start as it all looked so...

We had a wonderful stay in Avra. Located in charming Agia Galini on a hillside, it's a good location to explore beaches of the southern Crete. Hotel is small, charming, with a super friendly owners. Breakfast is so huge that we couldn't finish it.

Fantastic place, new rooms everyday cleaned. Near to many beautiful beaches such as agio pavlo, agiofarago, preveli and matala. But on top the kindness of the owners of the hotel.. Like to be at home! Fantastic and huge breakfast homemade and a wonderful simile to start the day.

We are staying at this hotel for six nights with one night to go. It is a very pretty small, family run hotel. Many rooms have sea views. The owners are a kind, hardworking couple who have made this an excellent choice for the traveller. The location is perfect as it is in between the beach and town and close...

Very Good value for price. Continental breakfast served on tray, various and greedy. Room (tidied up everyday! fresh towels, linen and body cleansers... not common in Crete) with a small balcony and a nice sea view. Owned by a super-gentle young couple. Go indeed!

We stayed here for only 1 night during our travels round Crete. The location is great, up a hill just outside the main village, so was only a 10 minute walk in (harder work coming back up the hill!) Our room was basic but clean, and the bathroom could be updated, and the balconies were not private (the rooms all...
