We stumbled upon this great value hotel and we cannot fault anything, truely fantastic stay. A charming, cosy and very personal hotel. It made a short stay in Crete completely relaxing. The swimming pool in the courtyard garden is like an oasis. When you step out on to the idyllic little streets in the centre of Panormos there are several... More

We enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing stay at Villa Kynthia. Breakfast is served in the beautiful and private courtyard beneath flowers and lime trees and we couldn't get enough of the delicious feta pie. The owner, and Maria in particular, were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We stayed in Nefeli, although smaller than the other rooms it was lovely and perfectly... More

4 of us stayed here for 8 nights. One couple in Pandora, we stayed in Artemis. From start to finish, it was a wonderful holiday. We thought the rooms were great and the location could not be beated. It is minutes away from the beach and the restaurants. The service was second to none. Special thanks go to Maria and... More

We stayed a few nights in the beautiful Villa which is in a great little seaside village/port within an hour or so's drive of Knossos and some of the other Crete tourist hotspots. Maria was fantastic - very kind and helpful from the first minute and always busy! We also had some good advice from the owner including restaurants in... More

We were looking for a relaxing holiday as we are expecting our first baby in October. Villa Kynthia nearly fulfilled our criteria. Located in an unspoilt village everything was really easy as there were a wide variety of affordable and great quality restaurants just a few steps away, in addition just a few meters away was an excellent supermarket. Villa... More

We had a very nice holiday here despite my wife's having problems with arthritis in her knee. The staff could not be more helpful. A lovely courtyard in which we spent many hours just hanging out and taking the sun. The location is within 25m on the flat of two good tavernas and 150m downhill to two good seafood tavernas....

Peaceful, comfortable little villa that has ticked all the boxes. Our second visit to Villa Kynthia and the high standards are still there. Lovely breakfasts with home made jams and marmalades made by Maria who looks after her guests with great care, and always with a smile on her face. Our room was clean and comfortable again. Karina made us... More

We spend a relaxing week at Villa Kynthia. As other guests have mentioned it is a quiet hotel despite being in the centre of the village. The breakfasts were superb and Maria was very helpful. Even in October there were plenty of tavernas to choose from.

Karina greeted us with a glass of wine and a smile. Just what we needed after arriving at the villa at around midnight. We sat in the charming courtyard surrounded by lemon and pine trees and the beautiful bougainvillea flowers that seep over the walls. We then went to bed and started a new day with a breakfast spread provided... More

Villa Kynthia is a perfect oasis of calm. We stayed in Pandora which has a small terrace - perfect for reading a book if you don't want to be by the pool. Maria is cheery, helpful and welcoming, and provides a delicious breakfast - try the local yoghurt & honey, fresh orange juice and home-made preserves.The rooms are all individually... More
