Not luxurious but then nobody ever said it was. We stayed in high season 2015, Ourania Apartments was friendly and welcoming, the owners and staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and overall it was a very pleasant and relaxing holiday. So much so that we thought of returning this year. The grounds of the...

Like others we were dropped on the main road and pointed down a shabby road! We walked with our suitcases down this 'road' wondering how far? On a hot day this wasn't ideal! But eventually we got there & checked in. Our apartment was small not a lot of storage space but was nice & clean, plenty of equipment in...

Very peaceful two weeks spent here. Equipment was good, towels and linen changed very regularly, beds were reasonably comfortable. About 10 minute leisurely walk to beach and nearest bars. About 25 minutes walk to main shopping street. Nice to see well looked after, neutered cats relaxing around the apartments

Being a lover of Greece and normally holidaying in Corfu we thought we would try Crete. Loved the Ourania, nice, clean apartments with friendly staff. Pool was a decent size with a good choice of bar food. Good location to taverna's and beach.

Ourania is a lovely complex of apartments. Its always incredibly clean and the staff are always great, nothing is too much trouble. Its a short 5 minute walk to the nearest bus stop and about a 10 minute walk to the seafront, 15/20 minute walk to the shopping centre. We always go in October and its nice and quiet, the...

A fantastic location for a family holiday. The apartments are immaculate, the swimming pool environment is safe for children and the staff are fantastic. We have booked for 2017 and that will be our third trip to Ourania.

Lovely clean spacious apartments, in fact the cleanest we have came across in Greece. Kostas was always on hand making sure everyone was happy. The bar served food during the daytime with large portions at very reasonable prices. The full english breakfast was particularly good. It was a ten minute walk to the nearest supermarket, and some excellent tavernas for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There’s a lot to be said for a small, peaceful hotel. If you’re looking to really chill out, you won’t get much peace at a bustling mega hotel. So that’s where the Ourania Apartments come in.You won’t find a huge resort packed with guests, but that’s its charm. What you do get is pin-drop peace and quiet, along with a bit of good old fashioned Greek hospitality. ... more   less
