Stayed a couple of nights at the Nanakis Beach apartments at the end of a holiday in Crete.
The apartments are situated in a lovely location, the grounds and pool are attractively designed and the apartments are comfortable. The owner and his staff are very friendly and helpful. The whole area is kept clean and tidy.
It is quite a long walk into the village where there are a number of restaurants and two small supermarkets. A car is almost a necessity. The pool area has attractive modern furniture, sadly the sunbeds are not very comfortable if using them for any length of time, they really need some sort of cover/mattress. I did find our spacious ground floor apartment rather dark, though that probably helped keep it cool and the addition of a toaster in the kitchenette would have been useful.

Room Tip: First floor apartments with sea views are probably the best

Kalispera!
we would like to thank you for taking the time to review our apartments and for helping us improve.
We have added a toaster to all our apartments and the sunbeds have a foam matress now.
Thank you very much

Stayed at Nanakis Beach for a week in mid may. The hotel and surrounding area was perfect for relaxation with an amazing sea view. The employees at the hotel were very welcoming and friendly. On our first day the owner guided us to the nearest restaurant and super marked, and he made sure to pop by now and then to make sure everything was in order. The hotel and grounds are lovely, clean and well kept. The pool was a treat with the fresh breeze from the sea and comfortable sun beds.

There is no sand beach connected to Nanakis Beach Hotel, but the nearest beach with free sun beds is only a short walk away.

We stayed here for three nights from 7 Oct. Firstly we arrived by cab arriving by Mr O'Leary at 9.50 so opted to get a taxi. Nanakis kindly ordered this at a cost of 22 Euro do we arrived late is at the apartments. Ok....first point.....if your arriving late definitely get a cab. Stavros is quiet remote and in the pitch black would be difficult to find.
The apartments are superb.....spacious, high quality, well maintained but they are a distance from Stavros. Arriving at 22.00 in a cab youngsve no chance of sorting anything out by way of provisions that night. Suggest the delightful owners offer a welcome pack of bread, milk, jam, orange jiuice, wine, for late arrivals at a cost. Anyway we arrived and were welcomed by the owner who showed us the apartment and gave us a welcoming raki.......just the job ! though a wovone good pack would have been equally as welcome at cost.
Next day the owners kindly and generous wife took us to the locsl minimarket to stock up on bread, jam, of, etc which was great. After that it was wonderful.....hired a car from the airport and we got our independence !
Our three days were great....the apartments were superb quality and great value. The pool delightful and the owners very helpful. Remember it was late in the season so restaurants were slowing down and very quiet. Beware...we stayed three nights and that was enough in terms of local choice at 10 October. Any longer we would have needed to drive further afield as restaurants in Stavros were VERY quiet.
Loved the apartments.....top notch and the owners were very helpful. Definitely recommend. Ensure you get a car though !
One suggestion......maybe good for the owners to supply daily bread themselves if apsrtments order the night before. We ended up driving each morning to get fresh bread....which was excellent...to the local Stavros minimarket. I'm sure most other apartments would do the same.......so a bulk order would help the tourists each driving to Stavros on the morning for bread. Tourists happy, mini market happy, one journey by owners for a small additional price for a small profit....got to make sense !
Overall.....this is a great place to enjoy a vacation....the aosrtments are brilliant, staff great, owners really nice and just make sure you have a car from the get go. Loved this place...highly recommend !

Room Tip: Get a full on sea view apartment....lovely views

We have just returned from staying here in mid-Aug, as a family of 4 (2 children: a girl aged 11 and a boy aged 9). The apartments were lovely, very clean, spacious, well laid out with everything we needed and cleaned every day. We had breakfast every morning on our balcony looking out at the sea.

The staff were all wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, they were always on hand for advice on places to go or maybe a raki! We loved the pool, which was clean and had lovely sea views. We also found we could walk to a small beach just 5 mins away across the rocks.

It is in a very quiet location, but that is what we were looking for, so perfect for us. We could walk to a few tavernas in 15-30 mins. A mini market was a short drive away, bigger supermarkets only 15 min drive.

It was the most relaxing, peaceful, lovely place to stay and suited us perfectly as a family holiday. We would definitely recommend it!

Room Tip: We had a sea view room and it was fantastic!

I stayed at this gorgeous apartment in June and it was perfect.

The apartments are very spacious, well equipped and offer everything that you need for a wonderful visit to Crete.

The owners are fantastic hosts. They offered me advice for the best places to visit and were always available if I needed information. In fact when I first arrived and asked where the supermarket was, instead of giving me directions the owner leapt in his van and showed me.

The location is beautiful with stunning sunsets and incredibly peaceful. All you hear at night is the sea gently lapping the rocks.

Highly recommended for a perfect escape to a part of Crete that's still not very touristy.
