This is a traditional, family run hotel that is welcoming, friendly and most anxious to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of its guests. My wife arrived a week before me to work on a project and she was already like one of the family by the time I arrived. They offer only B&B, but the breakfast is excellent and there... More

This was by no means five star accommodation - but if you want to experience the essence of Greece, then you need to stay at the Villea Village. Vasilis and his staff make you part of their family. On the night we arrived we were invited to join with them and enjoy Greek hospitality and Raki near the pool at... More

As so often happens with great holiday experiences, Villea Village was recommended to us by friends who have come back many times. On arrival we were immediately made to feel welcome by the excellent staff who took time to find out what kind of activities we liked and were always ready to make knowledgeable and interesting recommendations for things to...

The people and their hospitality and level of friendliness in Crete far surpasses that of anywhere in Britain, they're so calm and relaxed it's like an instant massage effectively. I feel choked to say it but I'm gonna genuinely miss this place. I'm seriously thinking of coming back soon. I can't begin to mention how spot on a honeymoon we... More

Villea Village is a little far from the regular tourist hot spots in Crete...approx 120 Kms from the airport. However, the journey and stay is absolutely worth it. I suggest you hire a car and drive rather than take a taxi or bus, you will not regret it. The resort is about 500 mtrs from the popular beach in Makry... More

I have just returned from a short break to Villea Village and had a great time. The staff were very helpful, especially with their local knowledge of places to see and eat out. We only stayed for 3 nights but the accommodation was all you could ask for, basic but clean, comfy and tidy. The pool is very well kept... More

We have just returned following our first visit to Villea Village as Royal Resorts points owners. Stayed for 2 weeks mid September and were very impressed with what we experienced. This is a traditional Creek property so do not expect up to date accommodation, everything is clean and comfortable whilst being very basic. The staff are the selling point,they could... More

The owners of this hotel have created a welcoming experience for visitors of all ages. It might not be 5 star accommodation but the atmosphere certainly was. There is much to see and do in the area, all in the hotel will advise, be it history, food or nature. Wi-fi free near office not in rooms the access was good.... More

This was our second visit to Villea Village and found it to be as wonderful as last year, we will be returning again! As stated by other reviewers, the rooms are basic but they are clean and comfortable. The pool is great, the beach is great and there are plenty of local tavernas to choose from. We hired a car...

We were there at same time as JDC399 and concur with his comments. Our Unit was spacious but primitive. Serious need of updating, both the rooms and the facilities. The bed was so hard we had to put spare blankets and bedspread under the sheet to soften the blow, but the room was clean. TV in rooms is only Greek... More
