The Dream Apartments are pretty new, there are four blocks of apartments no more than three storeys high terraced on a hill, there is a pool and bar. The bar tenders are very friendly. The pool is small but very nice and clean.

The accomodation is basic, they cleaned the rooms most days, some days didn't change towels :D

All the people in the apartments are Irish so if you like that then you should be happy.

The prices for the tours that were offered by the tour operator/rep were pretty high, you can get better prices down in the resort.

There was supposed to be a BBQ during the week but they cancelled it because of low numbers, which was disappointing.

I would recommend getting an insect repellent device for your apartment they plug into a power socket and cost about 4, I got a few bites the first night but after this was installed didn't get any more.

The apartments are at the edge of the Koutoulofari village which is very picturesque, has a few mini-markets a lot of restaurants and some nice taverns.

The resort/beach of Hersonissos is over a kilometer away down a steep hill, 15 minutes walk down to the town and over 20 minutes back up the hill, taxi is 5 from resort.

There are lots of places that hire bikes/scooters/quads/cars/jeeps so you could always rent from these so that you can get to/from beach/resort/siteseeing. Do haggle for a good rate! I didn't rent but did enquire and the first price sounded expensive 100 for three days quadding, but I'm sure they would have dropped the price considerably especially since it was early in the season and demand wasn't too high.

Herkalion is worth a visit for Shopping, there is also a Museum there for the archelogical finds at the Palace of Knossos, didn't visit the Museum but did visit the ruins of the Palace at Knossos, it was pretty big, most of it is 're-constructed' not very interesting.

:? I know I am too late to help out but incase anyone else would like to know about the dream apartments I stayed there in Sept.

We were unlucky in that our room was on route to the pool and the 24 hour bar. Every barperson in Crete seemed to come back after finishing work at 6 to have a few drinks so it was always noisy. Not all the apartments are like this though. We found it very hard to get clean towels from the cleaning lady as she kept telling us that the laundry had broken. When we asked for toilet roll you would swear that we had 2 heads. :evil: The dream apartments don't have a restaurant. You can order breakfast if you are up early enough or pizza or a toasted sandwich and thats the extent of the menu. However just around the corner are some gorgeous restaurants and some small supermarkets so this won't bother you too much. We hired a quad bike around the corner from a lovely man in Fenomenon. We used this to get to Star Beach and down to the town. It is only a 10 minute walk down the hill to the town centre but its a steep hill back home. Taxis to and from the apartments are only 5 euro and 4 people can travel in the taxi for this. There is great shopping in Hersonnosis and the bars and Clubs I would recommend are Players, Amnesia, Temple Bar, Cameo, New York and Shenanigans - had a ball in Crete. :lol: Can't wait to go back but to be honest think I'll be giving the Dream Apartments a miss next time apart from a visit to the 24 hour bar now and then. :wink:
The Greek people are lovely - can't wait till next time........

I stayed in the Dream aptmts in July 2003. We had booked through Budget Travel and they had told us that the apartments were divided into 2 blocks (old and new). They promised us one of the new apartments with air con but when we arrived they gave us an old one which aint that great. :lol: But we managed to charm some nice Irish boys into swapping with us so we ended up with a lovely 2 story apartment with air con :lol: They could do with changing towels more often though and actually supplying some loo roll as we hardly ever got any.
Pool is small but nice and everyone seems to know each other. The Irish girls working in the bar are great fun. Apartments are about 15 mins walk from centre and 15 mins from beach also. Beach aint that great as it's small but Star beach is good..lots or bars, pools and watersports. Players is one of the best bars there altho it's small and there is a few good karaoke bars up the main strip. It's mainly Irish and Scandinavians there and a few Scots. If ye fancy a change, Malia the English resort is good fun too and it has a few Irish pubs.
Don't book daytrips with the reps as they are cheaper down the town. The boat trip out to the islands of Spingalonga is good, great for a tan :lol:

I really thought that it was obvious, clear, natural - what ever - that toilet paper just as washing-up liquid, washing powder and so on are not included if you stay in an apartment.
In a hotel? Yes, toilet paper included.
In an apartment? Nope, not included.
But you can be glad if you have some toiletpaper when you arrive, that's a nice gesture from the cleaning lady in my opinion.

Good God, don't you know / learn anything in Ireland? I learned that on like my first holiday staying in an apartment, when I was five or something....

Very glad we weren't staying in the apartments the same time as cranky tinatoon. :evil: Dont know what kind of apartments you have usually stayed in (since you were 5!) but we have always been given toilet roll in every apartment we have ever stayed in.
