Featuring a pool with separate children’s section, Helios Studios & Apartments offers self-catering accommodations with Libyan Sea views. Appartments owned and manage by a friendly family. The appartment is clean and quite recently renovated. It has some basic amenities. The location isn't that attractive but you can travel around to visit beautiful beaches and areas.
A small seafront village, with a lovely beach. Tavernas along seafront selling delicious meals. Supermarket, baker, chemist, everthing you need, but not too commercialised. I`m being selfish, but I hope it stays the way it is xxx
we absolutely loved spilia tou drakou taverna just outside the village (best to go by car, but walking from lagada bay resort wasn't too long either) they have their own garden and everything is organic and fresh, and very good value for the money.

The room assigned was so spacious; a family room just for the 2 of us! All the staff were so welcoming and the hospitality was perfect. Nothing was too much for them. As for the hotel itself, it was just beautiful. The grounds were well kept, food was delicious, service was great. I couldn't say a bad word. We spent every morning at the beach as it was literally down the stairs, and there you are. Bliss. I want to say thank you to everyone, and we will be back!

The hosts were amazing! Truly hospitable, friendly and helpful. Upon arrival they offered us wine, fruits, juice - what a nice welcome :) they attended all our needs immediately. They had sun umbrellas in each room that you could use in the beach which is right next to the hotel. The location was also very nice. It's very close to Makris Gialos but situated in a calmer beach - 5 minutes walking to Makris Gialos. Loved our stay and would recommend the hotel.

1. Such sincere hospitality - it is very rare now (!); 2. Interesting and easy conversations with the hosts and other guests in the evenings with a glass of wine; 3. No crowds of tourists around, very quiet; 4. Snorkeling just below the rock on which the hotel placed; 5. Moon over Lybian sea; 6. ... summarizing, everything! Ευχαριστώ Ελένη!

The toaster - even if it only did one slice at a time. Much appreciated. Nice beach 200yds, also nudist beach a mile away just at end/beyond green beach east of Makry Gialos. Shops and baker in easy walking distance. Nice countryside to explore inland with a car or maybe walk the pefki gorge on foot if fit. Apartment was clean and decent.

Well organized small hospitality structure, with a dozen or so of apartments. The one I used was very well equipped, quite new and perfectly clean. The position is convenient for the beaches of Makry Gialos and surrounded by good restaurants, if you do not want working in your own kitchen. Nice and courteous proprietary.

The architecture and landscape were really beautiful. The cottage was really harmonious, a great eye for details. The reception was really welcoming and nice. The village of Makry Gialos had a few nice cafes at the beach and a laidback atmosphere.

It is a great location. Next to the beach and very close to taverns, another beach (sandy), while in a calm neighborhood. The host was very nice. Apartment was fully equipped. We enjoyed our stay in Makry Gialos very much!

Nice terrace with a garden view, quiet room, friendly staff, swimming pool with a bar so you can have cool drinks while on a sunbed. Resort is bit remote and less crowdy then most other places in Crete.

This is best place for family vacation. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Apartments have all needed modern equipment and facilities and is very cosy. The nearby beach hasn't facilities, however it is clean and there aren't much people around. For well developed beach you can reach nearby settlement of Makri Gialos (1km). Parking is good. The price is fair value for money. Going to stay there in future:)

The place was perfect! Great location, 100metres from the beach, and a beach that feels private. Our place was perfect with a balcony with a view to both the sea and mountains. And spot clean. Elpida, Nikos and Xenia were super host 💙. Such hospitality! I

Situated right over the harbour with a spectacular view of the bay. The host could not be more helpful or friendly and took our large family group with 8 kids under his wing. Highly recommended for solo travelers or family groups alike.
