What a horrible place! What a horrible man! We were transferred there by our travel agent. It is an old, run down, badly maintained shack of a place managed (owned?) by a miserable man who curses in English all day, who talks bad to his guests, pushes people around, is really very bad with old folks, and has an especial...

You only need to go once and then you are hooked for life. Antonis Pavlakis, the owner, is a cross between the literal characters of Miller's "Katsimbalis" and Kazantzakis' "Zorba". You haven't met a Cretan Greek (in that order please) unless you have met Antonis Pavlakis. His kindness, his restless spirit, his sense of hospitality, have inspired many (one book... More

A perfect place for anyone to stay who is looking for a beachside apartment with swimming pool and genuine Cretan hospitality. Andonis Pavlakis has looked after us for many years and we always look forward to the next visit. His apartments are homely, clean and spacious and his bar area is a great place to sit with a raki (or... More

If you are wanting to experience a bit of the real Crete this is the place to stay. The owner Andonis Pavlakis is an excellent host and nothing is too much trouble for this man. He treats you as if you were a member of his family with his boundless generosity, devoting his time to ensuring his guests have a... More

This was the first year that we stayed at Pavlakis Beach. Everything was nice and we enjoyed very much our stay. The beach right in front of the villa was clean and wonderful. The villa itself was big enough, equipped with all facilities and the view in front of it was relaxing. Mr. Andonis, the owner was very hospital and... More

My Sister, Mother and myself visited Pavlakis Beach Apartments in September 2011. The apartments themselves are a little tired but this is more than made up for by having a wonderful beach front position and the genuine, generous host in Andonis. Nothing is too much trouble. He looked after us as if we were family. On our Mother's Birthday he... More

A little gem. We have stayed at these apartments many times during the last 12 years The majority of Andonis Pavlakis' guests return regularly. (We've met some from USA, Canada, Australia & NZ.) His hospitality is sincere and genuine. Again this year he took us to new parts of western Crete and secret tavernas where very few tourist venure. He... More
