Hiona Apartments - Hotel Info

Hiona Apartments is on the north west coast of Crete. It's a short walk from the beach, in a popular area close to the centre of Elounda. You can take a short drive to Agios Nikolaos, or a day trip to the island's capital of Heraklion.
The hotel has Wi-Fi in public areas, and outside there's a pool area with an outdoor swimming pool and views out to sea. There's also a bar serving drinks and snacks.
The surrounding area of Elounda is a favourite with families as well as couples and groups looking for a peaceful getaway, with the option to explore more lively areas too. Elounda is by the sea with coastal roads and mountain views, as well as spots to gaze out to sea and take photos. There's a fishing harbour and plenty of bars and restaurants by the waterfront, as well as traditional tavernas and a popular beach. You can look out to the historic Spinalonga Island while you're sunbathing by the sea, or take a short boat ride out to visit it. There are also family-friendly attractions within easy reach including a water park and a nature park.

The most beautiful holiday. Hiona is fabulous such a lovely quiet location but only a short walk to the town. The staff are amazing, do friendly and helpful. Very clean appartment, great pool, bar and food. Couldn't wish for more, booked our next visit on the 2nd day we were there!

The towels and sheets only being changed twice throughout a 2 week stay, when twice a week is usually the norm, let this otherwise excellent place down. The general cleaning was only every other day too, rather than every day. Our patio area was never cleaned once and we had the same bath mat for the entire 2 weeks. Everything else was fine, and the staff were so friendly and welcoming it almost seems like treason to be finding fault with them, but this one thing really does need to be put right. The pool and bar area were very good with excellent value for money, tasty snacks, and reasonably priced drinks. The service was also very good and the location of the apartments was superb with lovely views from the pool area out to sea, though it was hit and miss if you had a view from your room - we didn't. They also provided on site entertainment which was decent enough, including a barbecue on one night. The resort of Elounda is excellent, definitely one of the best places in Greece we've been to. I've never known such a selection of tavernas with such stunning locations and nearly always a high standard of food. Plenty of things to do nearby also, with Ag Nic, Plaka and the former leper colony of Spinalonga all within easy reach, not to mention a selection of trips available on a land train - "The Happy Train". I'd definitely go back to Elounda, and if they could sort their room cleaning regime out, I'd also have no hesitation in saying at Hiona once again as everything else about it was very good.

A lovely place with excellent service and an honest welcome.The location is simply awesome, on the causeway to the island and near to the town.Walking along the pathway was a pleasure in both directions - 10 minutes to town ,5 to the taverna in the ancient remains of a preceeding municipality...2000 years ago.(And the remains are there to be seen just under the water). Hiona is popular with locals and with people staying elsewhere ...but quiet and comfortable. The family running the appartments are a fixture and it is by no means a business....it is an extension of their home. I highly recommend it .

I stayed at the Hiona apartments with my Husband in July 2012. It was our first time in Crete and i'm so glad we chose to stay at Hiona. Stunning location, on the Causeway. Stunning views. Apartments are basic, but it's Greece. Our apartment was clean and spacious. We didn't have any complaints at all. The pool and bar area were clean and tidy. We only sampled the food at the apartments once but it was good. Manos's cocktails are well worth a try. We are planning on going back there next year if possible. The staff are all very friendly. I did not want to come home. I would highly reccomend these apartments.

Pool kept lovely and clean by the owners overall Brill place but not suitable for children.
