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

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.

Lots of travelers will say that a... More

Restaurants much better at Koutolofari/Emmanuel villages (half an hours walk away), than at Herssonisos seafront, (also half an hour’s walk away),. Car hire recommended. Long steep walk with bags from reception to villas. (Can drive half way). Very pleasant and quiet spot. Lovely view. Private pools very small, 8 ms by 8 but do the job. Some watersports at Herssonisos... More
