    We went out of season, reason being work from April until November. It was just what we were looking for quiet, peaceful. A few bars for drinks, cocktails and a few places to eat. Most others were closed, but really did not matter to us. Ideal base for visiting Vai beach and other places of interest.

    Beautiful place to stay, relaxed but with a good choice of places to walk, eat and take in the sun. Try The Green Beach, it has a small restaurant down partly on the beach. A lovely quiet place to read a book in peace with crystal clear sea.

    Makrygialos is absolutely lovely.

    Makrygialos is absolutely lovely. The main beach is great and is perfect for children. We ate out every lunch and dinner time. Fantastic selection of restaurants. Found them very reasonable; you can eat cheaply or spend more if you wish. You can walk around Makrygialos very easily and everything you need is there. You won't find nightclubs or noisy bars! It is very much a family holiday environment. You need a car to get there or a taxi and definitely if you want to do some sightseeing.

    Lovely peaceful place with a safe clean beach and plenty of places to eat. I don't think that there is a more friendly place in Crete and I am only sorry that it took us so long to find it. We are going to try and visit every year for as long as we are able to.

    It's a beautiful village by the sea.

    It's a beautiful village by the sea. The beach is shallow and safe, so great for swimmers and non swimmers alike. There doesn't seem to be a lot of hotels, (a selfish but good point) although there were plenty of tavernas catering for all tastes. There seemed to be enough people about to make the resort seem busy but not overcrowded. I have been to Elafonisi and Balos beaches which are more beautiful but the facilities and clean beach means that I would rather stay at Makry Gialos. We swam every day that We were there. Parking can be a bit of a problem as the car parks aren't large or well signposted and one is up a very steep hill. We had great food at the Faros taverna and at the Cavern bar. A very special mention to Ian and Sharon at the Cavern bar for great (UK) food and the warmest of welcomes. We actually watched Queen Elizabeth the II funeral in the bar, as it was the nearest we could get to being there. Most of the beach is covered with sunbeds although you only have to buy a drink to use them. I have been to resorts that charge up to 10 euros a day for two sunbeds and a parasol! I am loving the thought of spending more time there next year. The biggest problem for me were the fumes emitted by the Chrissi island boat drifting across the beach between 10.30 and 11.15 in the morning when it left its mooring.

    Makry Gialos gave us the impression of a bit shabby place.

    Makry Gialos gave us the impression of a bit shabby place. If you leave the location of the appartment , you come onto the main road where ( if you turn right into the 'village' ) some little shops can be found. Best to stay near the location of big blue appartments....... We had an evening dinner in a restaurant near our accomodation which was ok. There is also a fish restaurant on the end of the small boulevard.

    Impeccable employees works in this hotel, so genteel and informative with the smile, ready to help you at any time you want it. My room was great, with comfy pillows and mattress. Sunset was amazing from my private balcony. Breakfast was also tasty with many choices. You can also enjoyed the Greek specialties and pizza made in traditional ovens. Unique experience. Reasonable prices for summer. Overall was all excellent and I would love to repeated again next summer.

    Apartment was absolutely lovely and clean with an amazing large balcony facing the beach. Hosts supplied everything you could possibly need plus they threw in a large basket of fruit, olive oil and local pastries. The apartment is in walking distance to the main restaurants and even has a good taverna within 50meters. We have been traveling around Crete for 3 weeks and this was our nicest stay by far. We loved it!!

    This is a very good accommodation in the center of Makry Gialos. We were given instructions how to enter, it was easy. Inside everything is perfect, well-arranged, clean, every necessary thing is there. The sea, a supermarket, cafes and eateries are 100 m away or less. Heartily recommended both for short stays or for vacations.

    Beautiful pool area to rest in the sun or the shade after a busy morning on the beach. Food at the restaurant was delicious, drinks were tasty and the waiters very genteel and friendly. Would strongly recommend this hotel if you want Greek facilities, peaceful haven, friendly staff and clean room's and a relaxing pool area.

    The location is excellent, 79 steps and you are on the beach. A lot of Crete apartments are quite rustic. This apartment is modern with all the facilities you would need to dine at home. Decorated in keeping the a sea side apartment. The outdoor shower was fantastic, ideal for a cool shower on return from the beach

    The location, the food, the large elevated room with exceptional sea views and above all the genuine warm Greek welcome. This is our third stay as we go elsewhere in Greece and although we enjoy the experience, none of them come close Artemis. Efcharitoume Kiria Despina kat team.

    The hosts were very friendly, and the apartment is clean, huge, with a living room and a bedroom with a very size bed and a single bed. A big balcone surrounding all the flat and with a wonderful view of Makry Gialos.

    Situated on a hill behind Makry Gialos it was picturesque, exceptionally quiet, an excellent swimming pool with the water temperature providing refreshment without being cold. Helen was great, also her colleague Sue.

    The hotel was located in a very nice spot and had beautiful views. It was probably an OK hotel in the 90s, but has been badly neglected since then.
