Guests with laptops may make advantage of the free wireless internet access that is available in public areas of the hotel. Also available are other facilities, including the hotel’s restaurant, bar and snack bar. Free parasols and sun loungers are available on the beach.
I booked the hotel because of the mainly positive reviews on booking.com, and I am happy that they were right.
Nice willing to help staff
The poorest breakfast I've ever seen! Everything is too old in the rooms. Hard to find, surrounded by dark and unpleasant streets.
The location of the hotel is really good!but thats not enough.....
The room was really dirty,the toilet really old an dirty!the reception really rude, I went to tell them that there was no hot water for the last 2 days and the guy was serfing in the internet and he didnt even look at me, but he finally realised I was standing there he told me I am sorry I can not do anything.???????
The location is fine: directly on the beach and not far from the main shopping street of Amoudara.
The room had a strange musty smell as we moved in. There was no curtain in the shower.
I loved to stay at Aptera Beach. I had a reserve for 3 days but I extended it for 5 in the second day. Very peaceful, 10 meters from the sea and very good breakfast (the tables are placed right in front of the beach. My room hadn't air conditioned but it wasn't really necessary because the isolation is good. The rooms are big and the staff is very very gentle. By the way, ask them for advice regarding your stay in Crete. They told me about awesome beaches (Vai, Preveli, ...)
