“Oasis of calm in the chaos of vacation makers”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2015

The sound of the sea with was only 30 metres away, the warm breeze drifting into an apartment of Cretan charm and utility. Surrounded with palms and the scent of Oleander flowers. The apartment was always supplied with fresh towels and linen. Mired only by the minor noise from neighbourhood hotels and basic kitchen facilities, overall it was great value for money and excellent for a base for small families.

“Lovely stay at Maravel Apartments - Highly Recommended”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2013

We arrived at around 12.30am to find Polychronis waiting up for us with the keys to the apartment. He was very helpful from the point of booking, responding quickly to all emails. His house is directly opposite the apartment, keeping him on hand for emergencies, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the holiday. The apartment was exactly as described. The modest kitchen and lounge space is open plan, leading on to a pretty balcony, with views of the nearby sea. This is literally a stone throw away from the door and we slept listening to the sounds of the waves. The view from the bedroom window is beautiful. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment which had a comfortable double bed (two singles, joined with a proper mattress connector). The location is great, just a couple of minutes walk to the main road (Adelianos Campos) where you will find a long strip of bars, restaurants and shops to chose from on foot. Just a 10 minute drive away is the pretty town of Rethymnon, which is well worth a visit, especially the old town, with plenty of choice and things to see. Some recommendations for food include Thalassografia, which is just beneath the Fortezza and boasts beautiful views of the sea. The salmon pasta was stunning. Everything was great value and lovely service. Zizzi's was also very good for local Cretan dishes (great value also) and can be found on the old road near Adelianos Campos. Although the harbour in Rethymnon is very pretty, watch out for restaurants touting for customers. We had a bad experience at 'Palazzo', after being practically forced to sit down and then goaded in to having the fish of the day (after asking for another fish dish), we were given a rather large bill at the end and at no point were told that the fish would cost almost 30 euros! A real rip off and bit of a scam. Anyway, back to the apartment. I would describe it as basic, if what you are looking for is a luxury hotel room but we found it to be charming and traditional. You have everything you need to cook (sharp knife was a little blunt but that's nit picking) and cleaners come in every 3 days or so to change the towels and linens. So there is no need to buy toilet rolls (we made that mistake on the second day) or bin bags, as these are also replaced. Some cleaning fluid would be handy, so guests can wipe surfaces and bathroom (as cleaners don't seem to do this). There was a good hair dryer and iron provided as well. The apartment does have a small tv but we didn't turn it on once! Must be a sign of a good holiday. We hired a car so that we could get about and see a bit more of Crete. This is handy but not essential if you're happy to stay local. There are buses running regularly to Rethymnon from the main road by the apartment. We ventured out to Agios Pelagios beach and Bali (both on the same road that travels to the apartment from Heraklion airport) but to be honest, we preferred the beach by the apartment! Much less crowded and beautiful at sunset. The local doughnut seller is amusing too. We were also able to use the facilities of the hotel next door (pool and bar) and this was perfect. We also had a little visitor every few days, a little ginger and white cat, who was extremely friendly. He seems to love human company and would sit for as long as possible (purring loudly) if you gave him a little attention. The only thing you will want to shoo away is the mosquitoes! Take some repellent and make use of the plug ins in the apartment. You can pick up the sachets from the local supermarket for less than 2 euros. All in all, we had a really lovely time and were sad to leave! I would highly recommend the apartments to anyone and would very happily go again.

We had a rest together with my husband from 5 to 19 June. Very convenient location the apartment. From Rethymnon 10 minutes by bus towards Ираклиона.Западный Crete is very interesting. Many beautiful beaches. Rethymno town is small and very beautiful. Directly next to the apartments are many tavernas. Close to a bus stop and supermarket. A lot of souvenir shops. Good, clean beach, with sun beds. Near pool. The apartments themselves are wonderful. There is everything necessary, kitchen, washing machine, air conditioning, TV. To the sea is 70 meters. Apartments with sea view. Also in the apartment comes with a bedroom, living room, shower room, terrace. It is very cosy. Suitable for both young couples and for families or groups of friends. I would like to master. Very nice, friendly person. Thanks to him and his wife for so graciously hosted us. Next time we daughter:)

“Second time to the apartment and not the last”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2012

We stayed here when our children were 10 and 13 and stayed again this year which was 5 years later. Thank fully our experience was every bit as good as the first time around. It's often a gamble trying to re create a holiday. We were not disappointed. The owner and his wife live nearby and make you very welcome. The apartments are functional, simple and clean, and superbly located between the nearby hotel pool and the sea. The pool is excellent and the sea and quite beach is 30 seconds from the apartment. We will be back again soon. Thank you Mr and Mrs Maravelakis for a lovely time. I'd like to have stayed to water the lawns. What a lovely job.

“Marvelous Maravel apartments”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2012

My family (2 adults & 3 chld.) stayed in two one-room apartments in Maravel Apartments complex in July-August 2012. During our vacations we were provided with all necessary service and facilities to feel comfortable: regular cleaning of the apartment, changing of bed-linen and towels twice a week. We appreciated the location of the apartments having the seashore and a large swimming pool just a few steps away from our place and a variety of souvenir shops and taverns situated nearby. Maravel Apartment is located in an easy-to-reach place not far from a number of different historical and natural sites that make your vacations more exciting. Above all we were moved with the hospitality of the owner Mr. Polychronis and his wife Ms. Ioanna. They really surrounded us with care and attention and were always there to meet all our needs. Mr. Polychronis is a man with rich life experience, a person you can always talk to and at the same time he is very delicate and never steps into your personal space. We had wonderful vacations and recommend this place to everyone who is looking both for seaside recreation and touristic exploration of Crete.

“Peaceful paradise”

Reviewed 2 May 2012

We had an excellent time as the location was ideal for us. The nearness of the sea (40m), the friendliness of the proprietors, the short distance to the main town of Rethymno and its night life, the shops in the immediate area made it a wonderful holiday.
