    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.

    A beautiful establishment managed by a welcoming family. It’s an ideal choice for families that wish to spend their vacations on the stunning side of Crete at the area of Lasithi. Numerous amenities and tavernas are available nearby. Owners are eager to provide all necessary hints and tips about local beaches and places to visit. The infrastructure is ideal either for enjoying time at the pool or in the beach. We enjoyed our staying!

    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!!

    I recently stayed at this lovely hotel and was thoroughly impressed with the amenities. The kitchen facilities were top-notch, allowing for convenient meal prep. Moreover, the breathtaking sea view from my room was a true highlight, offering a tranquil and picturesque backdrop. The hotel's garden was a peaceful oasis, perfect for a morning stroll or evening relaxation. Strongly recommended to everyone.

    Family owned charming little hotel. Very clean and well maintained. A few steps away from the village, a lot of great beaches and hikes within 30 minutes. Hosts are amazing and very friendly. Great pool. We definitely loved our stay at this hotel. If you want a vacation away from the crowds and the big city, this nice little town is the place, and Helios Studios has it all.

    I’ve stayed here two years ago and came back again this summer. This place is a dream. Surrounded by nature, tranquil gardens, gorgeous rooms, and in a perfect location. The owner Emma is so lovely and helped us with our stay, also with great recommendations. Definitely the best place to stay in the area - and the best place I’ve ever stayed in Crete!

    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

    I think it's the best hotel you can stay in the neighborhoud. The beach of the hotel is very private, very cosy. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Yannis is a fantastic host. If you want to spend some time on the beach without the usual crowd and have a calm, relaxing vacation, this place is for you.

    We loved the hotel. The food was outstanding, the staff smile and are helpful, the sea and beach are great, and our room is marvellous. When there was a problem, it was attended to immediately. If you like walking, do the Pefki Gorge. You walk there directly from the hotel.

    I felt like royalty at Ionio Star. The cleanliness of the hotel was impeccable and the beach with its Blue Flag status was divine. The 24-hour reception was a great convenience, and the beach volley and small harbour facilities kept me entertained throughout my stay.

    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.

    A great family hotel in a quaint town away from the mainstream within walking distance from some great restaurants. The beach is meters away, with a pool fed from the Mediterranean.
