Came here for evening meal having wandered past a few times on our 2 week villa stay. In fairness probably a 3.5 star rather than a 4 star but gave benefit of doubt. Lovely setting but couldn't quite fit us by the beach-side deck but second choice table was fine. Ordered 3 lamb kleftikos but told 10 minutes later only... More

My girlfriend, son and I stumbled across this gem while looking for something to eat by our nearby hotel. Unfortunately, places like Stavros are so rare to find in 2015. Proper home cooked meals made with fresh vegetables, quality ingredients and a pinch of greek love. Nice people. Amazing food. Great prices. Draft Mythos. What more could you ask? I... More

When i first arrived on Crete I was thinking that I had chosen the wrong place because it just felt like I was far far far away from Xania. But when I rented a car and then drove into Xania I was really thankful not to be in the midst of all the super touristy over commercialized areas. The process... More

We have just returned from a lovely break here. It was our wedding anniversary and the owners made it very special for us. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. The bathroom is a bit basic but that aside, we wouldn't hesitate in going back. The owners are absolutely wonderful and do all they can to make you feel at... More

As a young couple leading very busy professional lives, we couldn't recommend this hidden gem in Crete enough. Our accommodation was basic but perfectly adequate, cleaned daily. The only downside of our room was the fairly pricey pay-per-day AC which did the job but was old and noisy during the night. The real highlight of the stay has to be... More

We stayed, 2 friends, for a week in July and couldn't believe our luck. Having lived in rural Greece we wanted a more traditional place to stay but close enough to visit beautiful Old Chania. Lefteris ( based in the UK) had assured me by email that this was a small family run place with normal Greek life going on... More

I had stayed there 10 years ago and returned to familiar place to confirm that it was a well kept secret of the area! away from the tourist attractions of Platanias and in a quiet zone where the sea is not shallow as in other places along the coast. The restaurant is a few paces from the beach and Despina's... More

This is the ideal location for a relaxing time by the beach! Or by the pool if you prefer, especially if you have children. The rooms are good sized and airy and have all the facilities should you decide not to taste the amazing food of the taverna and prepare a quick meal yourself. I stayed there in July 2014... More

Firstly the photos shown on their website do not correspond to the majority of the rooms, this is very deceptive as one expects to find a bright, clean airy apartment, but the one we stayed in was quite the opposite. We paid for two weeks in advance, which I think, explains the staff's unwelcoming and indifferent attitude. The two redeeming... More

The Self-Catering Apartment booking was made by a couple (husband and wife) and a third person, friend of the couple sheared the second bedroom. I have to mention here that neither of the people in the group made any complain about anything during or after their stay. One week after her check-in (check in 3rd July) and 2 days before... More
