Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Peaceful village-style setting and pretty gardens
  • Free parking and free bike rentals
  • Children's outdoor play area (shared with another hotel)
  • Good-sized pool has loungers and views of the sea
  • Simple rooms feature kitchenettes
  • Family-run property has a low-key vibe
  • Pool bar serves drinks and snacks
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Pebble beach is not particularly attractive and can be difficult to access
  • It's a long walk to Agios Nikolaos
  • Some guests have complained of noise in rooms near the pool bar 
  • Some rooms are small and mattresses are hard
  • Lots of stairs may be an issue for some

Bottom Line

A family-run apartment hotel built around a pool, with a pool bar and surrounded by pretty gardens, this village-style property is close to a pebble beach, with sea access (that's a bit difficult thanks to the rocky shore). A short drive from Agios Nikolaos’ cafes, restaurants, beaches and nightlife, its peaceful location makse Mirabella Apartments a popular budget option with older couples and families who seek a casual home base while spending time at the beach or sightseeing nearby. Most rooms have good views over Mirabello Bay, but some rooms close to the bar can be noisy and mattresses are quite hard. A small children's play area is shared with a neighboring hotel.

Scene

Older couples and families looking for peaceful, no-frills rooms frequent this hotel.

This friendly, family-run hotel built around a good-sized pool, with an embedded hot tub, and a pool bar serving drinks and snacks, makes a comfortable base for older couples and families who spend their days at the beach, around the pool, or sightseeing nearby -- then spend evenings enjoying the laid-back cafes, restaurants, and nightlife surrounding Agios Nikolaos' legendary 'bottomless' lake. Most rooms have balconies with lovely sea views and kitchenettes, which offer a budget alternative to the hotel's small restaurant.

Location

Minutes from Agios Nikolaos' pretty café-surrounded lake, this property overlooks Mirabello Bay.

Overlooking Mirabello Bay and half-an-hour’s ride from Heraklion’s international Airport, the Mirabella Apartments are an easy drive from the shops, bars, beaches, restaurants, and legendary lake of Agios Nikolaos.  

A short drive from several large water parks, Mirabella Apartments is also a short drive from Elounda, the pretty resort were boats leave for Spinalonga, the eponymous island featured in Victoria Hislop’s bestselling novel. Other attractions within a 20 to 25 minutes' drive include lively Mecca Malia and the fabled Minoan remains of Knossos. 

Rooms

Some cramped, some more spacious, many rooms here include small balconies or courtyards, sea views, and kitchenettes.

Clean, with pleasant garden, pool, or sea views, Mirabella Apartments' air-conditioned studios and apartments (fitting between two and five guests) have electric kettles, toasters, fridges, and basic cooking equipment. Light and airy, most apartments also have separate living room areas with tables and chairs.

Apartments away from the pool and pool bar are less noisy, particularly in high season. Best views are offered by the apartments looking out over the pool and Mirabello Bay.

Features

Pool with pool bar, internet corner, small shop, and pebble beach

Mirabella Apartments' best feature is the good-sized pool with embedded hot tub, surrounded by sun loungers that have views over Mirabello Bay just below.  

There is also a pool bar restaurant serving drinks and basic meals, a mini- market selling souvenirs and snacks, pool and ping pong tables, and an internet corner with several computers. A playground area shared with a neighboring hotel has swings and slides, and there is also a tatty pebble beach where guests can take stand-up paddle board lessons, but access would be difficult for young children.
