booked the last room available and wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else. George and staff were so friendly and accommodating. Rooms where spacious and clean. Loved the quirky little signs around the gardens :) wouldn't change a thing. Definitely worth a visit

First we have been at Karo Zakros 2 years ago and always wanted to come back to that amazing/ wild place. I was looking for a place to stay and usually very skeptical to the apartments. In general: great location of the apartment, great view at the bay, parking, balcony. George is friendly and helpful, always ready to support with...

The owners George and his wife left no stone unturned to make this a wonderful place to stay. They are perfectionists. The rooms are spotlessly clean, crisp new sheets every day, and delicious home made cake being left in the fridge. Stunning views of the sea from our balcony as well as the gorgeous vineyard and garden at the front...

We liked everything! We arrived quite late (after 9 P.M.) but the host was waiting for us. He showed our appartments, explained everything very particularly. We had a tea making facilities in the room - it was really nice (kettle, cups, even tea/coffee and the sugar!). We liked the shower - perfect shower comparing it with other places in Crete....

I wanted to come to Kato Zakros to hike the Gorge of the Dead and found this place to stay after not being thrilled with Airbnb choices in the area. What a fortunate find. I originally booked for two nights. By the time I drove up the driveway I decided to book for four nights. By the next morning I...

Was so delightfully surprised that George provided a washing machine and iron with ironing board, and at no charge, so very kind of him. The location was very close to the Palace and Gorge of the Dead, the taverna Akrogiali was quite close with excellent food.

Modern, bright, very clean apartments with helpful and friendly owners. Large, private balconies with wonderful views of the bay and the mountains. Stayed for 14 days at the start of September. Will stay there again next year.

Stayed at KZP Apartments in May/June 2014. Close to the Minoan Palace ruins, and the bay. A luxurious double bed 'open plan' apartment all to myself! The view from the large, very private balcony was beautiful.....the bay slightly to the right, and a view of the stunning Kato Zakros Gorge to the left - the best of everything. Just a...

From the moment you begin your descent down to Kato Zakros Bay you will be struck by its awesome natural beauty. Mountains jutting into the clearest blue water, a perfect view of the ancient Minoan Palace ruins, and a warm welcome from owners Giorgos and Haroula Platanakis as you begin a perfect "get away" holiday at their wonderful hotel.

This hotel has a good view and good facilities. Probably the best in town. I arrived late, which I told the owner in advance, but I was even later than expected. The owner did accommodate my arrival time, which I appreciated. Had a bit of explaining to do in the morning when I checked out though. He said I was...

“I had Apartment 5, which I loved. Apartments 1 and 7 also looked as big as mine. The rest looked smaller from the outside (with fewer windows). All apartments are sea-facing. Very quiet when I was there.”
