Stayed at the Golden Villas in a villa with a private pool. Accommodation was dated but we didn't have a problem with this. To have a villa with a private pool for the price we paid I thought was amazing value for money. Our villa was at the very top of the complex so walking back up to it was... More

We just returned home from 2 weeks touring Crete. Golden Villas is a perfect touring base for the East. We didn't book this till last minute and got a great price. Cleaning was sparcd but the friendliness of the staff made up for it, if you are out and about you will hardly notice. If you have trouble with stairs... More

By the moment we entered the villa we were disappointed. The interior was impractical, the cleanliness unsatisfactory and there was also dampness on the walls. The pool was not so private, as the neighbours were just two steps away and we also doubt if it was cleaned. Another big minus was the parking, being always full and totally inconvenient, unless...

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. If you do not... More

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
