At the heart of Cretan hospitality, you will find a generous exchange of stories, traditionally told around the dinner table by both hosts and guests. For over 40 years, the owners, staff and many repeat guests of Agapi Beach, have been sharing their stories with each other, and enriching each other’s lives with those little anecdotes, insights, ‘firsts’, recipes, tips and jokes that make us all feel like part of a great extended Cretan family. The best part of this is that guests can rely on exceptional cuisine, superb facilities and faultless service, because in Crete, we keep the finest for our family, and that means you.
