This hotel, I would immediately took at least two stars, still wonder how this hotel could have earned four stars and such an assessment. Dirt, without basic hygiene and hotel toilet facilities, kitchen, storage space, etc. Old and scruffy hotel beach without options available for how to Crete and its surrounding environs and other accommodation belongs.

We were three friends in a villa. The villa is basically divided into 2. The upper floor, which is also the ground floor, it's the parents' room. It has a terrace overlooking the sea, large shower, and a comfortable double bed. The lower floor is the floor that has a kitchen, a shower, two sofas which are also the beds,... More

The apartments are set in landscaped gardens on the hill overlooking the bay and so have fantastic views. It is about a 20 minute walk into the town but worth getting a cab back as it is all uphill. Good bits: The staff are so friendly and helpful - especially Maria who manages the complex Food at the snack bar... More

Good villas with friendly staff, located on mountain, perfect see view, 10 min to hersonissos.Two floors, private pool. It's a good idea to ask staff for car renting - price would be cheeper. A lot of mosquitos (common for Crete may be). As hersonisos doesn't have good beaches, the closest one is in Malia (by bus/car quad). Villas has it's... More

Golden Villa is about 30 minutes drive from the Heraklion airport. Our Aegean flight from Athens was massively delayed. We arrived after 1:00 am. It costs €50 to take the taxi from the airport to Hersonissos where Golden Villa is located. With good luck Budget rent a car happened to be open and Dimitri hooked us up with a great... More

We liked everything about our villa. the view is breathtaking, and... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Very nice place to stay with children, because of quiet and calm atmosphere. Our suggestion - to rent a car, to walk to the beach you need 15 min.The continental breakfast is OK, you can have a dinner 12 Euro per person. Monday and Friday evenings sometimes life Greek music.
