Athena Hotel
Ranked #23 of 47 Hotels in Georgioupolis
Reviewed 18 August 2017 via mobile

We booked a holiday to Crete very last minute and managed to book 7/14 nights at Athena after it was recommended to us by someone else. I am very glad we booked! The rooms have everything you need and there is a great pool that was nice and quiet whilst we were there. A short walk to the centre with lots of restarts and to the beautiful beach which goes on for miles. Vasilis and his family were very accommodating both before our arrival and during our stay. We stayed at two other hotels in the area during our stay and this was our favourite. I would definitely stay again if in Crete.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled as a couple

Got a perfect 2 floor apartment. Clean rooms. Cleaning 6 days a week. Nice pool area but we did not try. Few minutes walk to the town square. Very friendly staff. And a cozy cat greeting us welcome on the terrace every day.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive on traffic noise, choose room away from the road.

Tripadvisor is all about reviewing places you have visited and giving info to help others make a decision, the good the bad and the ugly.
Here at the Athena there is no bad or ugly and I'm not sure i want to tell everyone about the good , i want to keep it to us.
Oh go on then i will tell you.
Its Perfect in our opinion.
Very welcoming Family and staff, they are the perfect hosts .
The whole place is shining, clean and well looked after.
From what we saw all the rooms are very spacious, plenty of storage and all seem to have good sized terrace or balconies with plenty of room to eat or just sit and relax .
Free wifi, Aircon, safes, fridge, hair dryer (on request), tv, kettle, coffee machine, two ring cooker, toaster and all the pots, pans , plates, glasses and cutlery you need.
Indoor table and chairs, outdoor table and chairs.
Outdoors there is the pool and a baby pool, showers, sunbeds and parasols with the mountain back drop one way.
You can purchase breakfast, teas , coffee , soft drinks etc.
Rooms cleaned 6 days a week, regularly changing the bedding and towels.

Location is at the end of town so no crowds walking passed at night but you can be in the centre of town in 10 mins stroll, you can be on the beach in a 10 min stroll.
Supermarket 100 yards away which personally we found to be the best one in town.
As for the bakery which is 100 yards away that was dangerous, we just had to go in every day for something, we can recommend the breakfast, the pastries, the cookies, the biscuits , the cheese pies, the sandwiches, the chocolates, the ice cream, the croissants and the many different breads.
Your first restaurant is less than 100 yards away and the furthest 15 mins away , thats if you go straight there and not via the bakery or any other shops and tavernas on the way.
Athena gave us everything we wanted and we cannot thank the Papadakis family enough for a wonderful holiday, we will be back, dont let anyone have our room.
If you want a taxi to or from the airport then contact Athena, the local taxi they put us in touch were perfect, on time and friendly.

We had a ground floor room at the front of the first block as you enter the (small) complex. The apartment was roomy with a spacious kitchen and a separate bedroom. We had three windows plus a roll down shutter on the doors to the terrace - though it was hot we managed without the air conditioning.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay - the beach is a 7-minute walk away and there is a good supermarket about 5 minutes away. Seven or eight minutes of casual strolling and you reach the main square. So ideally placed...

The owner is a lovely lady who is always happy to have a chat. When the resort was plunged into darkness due to a power cut (and it was raining heavily!) she met us at almost midnight as we splashed our way back to the apartment with a torch to make sure we got into the apartment without any mishap.

The front apartments are close to the road so there is a bit of traffic noise but it didn't bother us - some local wine and a glass of raki and we slept like babies!

We've been to the resort three times, every time staying in a different apartment; we'd check out the Athena for our next visit. We were very happy.

The hotel was very clean, the accommodation was comfortable, great pool, great view from our balcony looking out over the fields and the sea beyond. Behind (in the 2nd bedroom) we had a view of the mountains. Overall very nice.

Room Tip: We had a 2 bedroom apartment, sea/pool view in the double room and mountains from the twin room.
