Not disappointed at all
8 years ago
We were certainly not disappointed with Zygos. Yes, the accommodation is basic but perfectly serviceable; it has a 2* rating after all. The noise from the adjacent complex can be very loud, but rarely after 11.30pm, and only in certain rooms.

We travel to be tourists - out and about all day, and back to the Hotel for a last drink before bed. To that end, Zygos suited us perfectly. Eva and Yianni cannot do enough to make you happy. We landed in Room 8 on our first night and were deafened by the nearby disco. (Other people had Room 8 and were not at all bothered, I should add!) We spoke to Eva and she moved us at once; after that, we slept soundly.

We would certainly recommend Zygos Apartments. I would also offer the following tips:

1. Buy the air-conditioning (7 Euros a day) - it gets VERY hot in Sissi! Factor this in to your holiday budget.
2. Take a plug-in insect-o-cutor, not a repellent. Just zap the little blighters and be done with it! (Check out Amazon for some good deals on these.)

3. Please feed the local cats. For a town full of restaurants, there is not a single rat or mouse to be seen. The local cats keep the town completely free of vermin, but no one else really looks after them. Our little family on the balcony ate well on cheap spam from the local supermarket.

4. Malia Cars or Mevis Cars offer good deals on car hire, but read the small print on all of the deals from them and other traders. Don't leave yourselves exposed on insurance.

5. Buy a four-way socket extension from the local supermarket (6 Euro) if you don't have one. The fridge is always on, and you can use the adaptor to charge your camera batteries throughout the day while you are out.

6. Get the Rough Guide to Crete if you want to be out and about. We never had a dull day in two weeks. There is plenty to see and do either by bus or car.

7. Make the walk to Boufos Beach (east of Sissi, about 30 minutes, sometimes called Kalimera Kriti beach). It's fantastic sea swimming and the beach is pure sand. Bed and parasol hire is expensive (11 Euros) but it's worth every cent.

Go to Zygos. We met some lovely people there and we can be as fussy as anyone when we feel we've been let down, but that was certainly NOT the case at Eva's and Yianni's.
