Imagine a little hotel and taverna, right in the middle of nowhere, after crossing the deserted mountains of Sfakia, where goats are constantly playing their lives, right on the edge of the cliffs...You receive a warm welcome by Pavlos, an amazing guy who lives there all the year round. You have a raki, you swim in the warm waters of... More

We stayed by Akrogiali's Rooms in September 2014, for 4 days. It is fabulous place for people who are looking for quiet, close to beach place. Pavlos and his family are extraordinary friendly. You will really feel that they care about your staying. Mother's Moussaka is the best I've ever tried. The only one minus is that to the closer... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and had the best vacation. What makes this place so unique is Pavlos, the friendly, funny and amazing owner of this place. He remembers the names of the everyone and gives you personal care. The food is great and the vibe is very relaxing in the restaurant. We will come back again. We miss... More

After just spending three days in lykos my greek beauty and me felt so relaxed as if we had spent two weeks in the most expensive spa in the world! Pavlos (probably the happiest person in the world), was an incredible host. Together with his mother (that cookes very nice and very tasty greek dishes, using exclusively local and even... More

It's over 20 years since we first walked past this spot, and there was nothing here. The beach hasn't changed - a little rocky, and then clear, deep open ocean. Perfectly child safe, but not the soft sand that children & their parents might be looking for. Now, there's a couple of hotel/tavernas, and a working hillside farm. We picked... More

I think it's all a big big conspiracy, everything is designed such that you don't want to leave the place and stay there forever. Pavlos and Kostas brothers make you feel at home from the moment you set foot on their boat. Their mom cooks delicious local food with home grown ingredients. The dog sleeps peacefully at a windy location... More

Just returned from 9 days in the most wonderful taverna Akrogiali in Lykos bay run by the Manousadakis family. Met lots of people who return year after year because it is so special. The reason for this is not only the wonderful location on the south west coast of Crete where you arrive on foot or by boat, but also... More

We had a great time at Taverna Akrogiali. Pavlos is a perfect host, and he really makes all of his guests feel welcome. This is a real family run place, with Pavlos' father preparing fresh lamb, yogurt, and cheese, and Pavlos making fresh honey. The food is delicious. Make sure you bring enough cash for your stay, there is no... More
