The nearest beach is across the road, 300 metres away.
Property comprises six buildings coloured in earthy shades of cream and beige. Balconies are generously sized with either concrete or iron frontages and shaded canopies. The imposing main block sits on the edge of the pool with floor to ceiling windows.
Property type: Aparthotel

The modern reception and lobby is bright and airy with red and cream leather sofas and quirky artwork. Upstairs is an attractive, brightly coloured bar with directors’ chairs and marble tables and a small terrace overlooking the pool.
The taverna, which is also open to the public, is plain and traditionally furnished with wooden seating and old style dressers.
Narrow pathways with clear signposts are bordered with low hedges, trees and flowering bushes. Grounds are compact with limited sunbed space and inbuilt thatched parasols. The pool has metal steps only and a children’s section with metal separator on all sides.
The brightly coloured pool bar occupies 1 side of the pool with plastic furnishings and bistro tables that extend into the sunbed area. The taverna on the other side of the accommodation blocks has a spacious seating terrace with children’s playground adjacent.
Area Type: Golden Bay Hotel is located across the road from the sea and a small river, a 5 minute walk from the closest beach and taverna, in a quiet position. The centre of either Gouves or Kokkini Hani are a 20 minute walk away and Gournes, 10 to 15 minutes. The Crete Aquarium is 300 metres from the property.
