    The apartment is part of a familiar hotel ruled by a lovely greek couple, Maria and his husband, who were extremely friendly and welcoming. The apartment was really comfortable and clean, with a beautiful view and placed in the outskirts of Kissamos: a rural, not-so-big town which has however a very cute center and a lively atmosphere. I would totally recommend this place to anyone looking for an authentic and comfortable place in the heart of Crete.

    The furnitures are dated: it seems to be returned in the '70s.

    The position of the hotel is fantastic: very near to Balos and Falasarna Beaches and with a terrific view on the bay of Kissamos (two balconies with a view)! The rooms are equipped of a small kitchen that it can be useful. The owners are very kind and gentle!

    This is my second time in Delfini and it is always great . All the rooms have spectacular view . The place is a bit out of kissamos but it is 5 min drive or 20 min walk to the town . If you like calm place far from the patries and tourists this is the place . The owner Dimitris is a warm old men and his housekkeper Maria will do everything to meet your needs and make you feel at home . Love this place

    In apartment n.15 the bed in main bedroom were quite noisy.

    The place is clean, great location for visiting this part of the island (beaches nearby Falassarna, Balos). We liked the verandas where you can have breakfast. The kitchen is small, but just enough to prepare breakfast, dinners, maybe cook some simple meal. The big bonus is that they cleaned the apartment almost every day (wipe the floor, make the beds, even changed towels).

    It was a bit more expensive then other places we went before in Crete, considering that breakfast was not included.

    The position of the property out of Kissamos was very good and in line on what we were looking for. From our room we could see the sunrise and in a short time we could also reach Kissamos for dinner. The owner was very gentle and friendly.

    good location, but urgently needs to renovate
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • One-Bedroom Apartment with Sea View
    • Stayed 4 nights

    Furniture is shabby and often not comfortable. Two beds standing together mean double bed, but actually the construction of the beds does not allow to link them together. So, there is a 10 sm gap between the beds anyway. The bath is tiny and designed only for sitting, and there are no curtains. I have never thought how uncomfortable is taking shower in such type of bath. The fridge has not been defrosted for ages, so there is a very thick layer of ice inside. We did not need this part of the fridge, but anyway we could not even if we would like to. In fact, it shows overall condition of the apartments.

    Very convenient location, close to the Ballos beach (we went there twice by car), other beaches are also reachable. Great sea view from the upper rooms. Parking is available, the road is right downstairs.

    The location is amazing! This place is for those who prefer the non-touristy experience. It overlooks the ocean and is quiet and quaint. Easy distance to any part of the west coast and even Rethimno, along the national road. It's 10mins from ancient Phalassarna (with the most beautiful beach). At the port (2mins walk away) you can book cruises to Gramvousa and Balos Bay. Extraordinary! [You should hire a car to travel around, that way you can enjoy a stay in such a beautiful place whilst still doing lots of activities]

    The apartments were more basic than what we expected. You do get an outside table and a fully functioning kitchen however. It was also very clean :)

    The owners of the hotel and the hotel staff (Maria!) were exceptionally welcoming and generous. It was a very safe and quiet residence with great proximity to Balos beach, which was by far the highlight of our trip. The breakfast was simple but delicious, perhaps a little expensive but just what we needed. I would definitely go back again.

    I loved Delfini apartments.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    Delfini is in a great location if you want to use it as a base to explore the region. However, you need a car if you want to stay there. It is only a couple of mins to drive to Kissamos town but there is not a lot around the apartments themselves - only a couple of tavernas nearby which limited evening dining options. There are a couple of small beaches next to Delfini - great for a morning swim, but not beaches you would want to spend all day at.

    I loved Delfini apartments. A really great location for peace and quiet, lovely views and well positioned for exploring the far west of Crete. Our apartment was spacious and well equipped. Some reviewers have commented that the apartments are dated but I think that's part of the charm - retro, old school holiday apartments with a really warm welcome from Manolis and Maria. Maria brought us coffee, fresh oranges and even cooked stuffed tomatoes and left them in our room for us, the most delicious I tasted while in Crete.

    Maria, the maid, is the best maid you can imagine, she is like a mother to you. You have an amazing sea view, and by walking 100 m downstairs you will find Delfini Beach, two coves where you are often the only one. By car you'll need 1min to the ferry to balos beach and about 5 min to the beginning of the gravel road to Balos beach. You'll need about 1 hour by car to Elafonisi and about 10-15 min to Falasarana Beach, 3-5 mins by car to Kissamos.
