5 nights with friends
We loved our stay at Ourania Apartments. Service was great, staff were super friendly and helpful. The apartments we stayed in were slightly older but still fine. We had a lovely big balcony which was amazing. I think there are also newer apartments in the same complex which look much more modern which would be ideal for our next stay. The apartments are only a short walk from the beach and restaurants so location was perfect! Couldnt have been happier in terms of value for money - couldnt believe how little we paid for 5 nights! I would recommend!

Would recommend to a friend!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ourania Apartments. The complex is very picturesque with a beautiful pool, the staff are lovely and extremely hospitable, the location is perfect (being less than 5 minuets from the beach and wonderful restaurants), and we especially loved the wild cats that roamed the area. The apartments themselves, although are very basic and fairly bare, are kept very clean and bedsheets and towels are replaced regularly, and have all the basic necessities for comfortable living. There is no real faulting Ourania — although I would say for future guests — be wary of hidden fees for things that seemed to be advertised as included but in fact come at a cost i.e air conditioning, safe, etc.

Great family spot. Big rooms for Europe
It was perfect for a family of 5. The price was right. The staff was always there when we needed anything. Plus they had security at night, but you didn’t feel as if you needed it.

Room was a bit on the small size in the living area with only 2 ring elec hob for cooking (studio appts very cramped) but an ideal base when only really using room for sleeping. Rest of complex was good inc bar/catering, staff excellent and reasonable choice of bars and eating places within 15 mins walk (as was the beach). Pool area was big enough for us when going out of season
