Had a fantastic holiday here. It is quite remote and if you don't like walking you would need a car. We enjoy walking and it was great to be off the beaten track just a few miles away from busy Heraklion. The Mavrakis family were amazing hosts and made us feel very welcome. The apartments ARE basic but very clean... More

We stayed here for 3 days and were family of two adults and two children. Very good value. Rooms are simple but adequate. Great pool, free parking, wifi and the pool area has open service for most of the day in case you feel like just lounging and enjoying the incredible view of Agia Pelagia. The beaches at the foot...

This hotel is managed by the nicest people on this side of the galaxy. They are professional, yet friends and available to cater to your needs. Food is particularly good and it adds a lot to the culinary Crete experience. It's a place that stands apart from stereotypes in this popular tourist destination.

We stayed at Spiros Soula from 3rd 10th August 2016. When we arrived we were taken to a clean and tidy room although very basic in appearance. The views and location are spectacular which is a very good selling point for this accommodation. The breakfast was fresh but basic but the evening meals were very delicious. The overall room service... More

My family of 8 stayed at Spiros-Soula for 6 nights, and it was one of the best experiences. We were greeted warmly by Dominica who showed us our rooms and provided us with water.
