We came here in August 2014 and as soon as we got there we were blown away by the view. Let's start with location: it's right up a steep hill and your transfer coach won't take you to the door, but about 400m downhill. But never fear, the coach driver should phone the hotel who will send a car down... More

Been comming here for 5 years in a row, such a fantastic place. I think I've said all I can about it in previous reviews, so this time a few tips about the area. If you want a fairly decent beach then there is one either end of hersonissos, to the right as you go down is Star beach with... More

We returned last night from what was our perfect holiday. The view is spectacular! You couldn't have picked a nicer spot. The bar and pool area, along with all the rooms have fantastic panoramic views across the sea. The location was perfect for a relaxing holiday. Out the way of the busier town below and with just 20 rooms, the... More

Just back from a week at these apartments (and I mean literally - landed at Manchester last night). I am pretty sure most people reading these reviews should know about the lofty location by now, but it really is a climb up various flights of stairs and hills. But at the top there are the most marvellous views, clean and... More

Stayed here late August, the views are fantastic. Brilliant sea views - i think all rooms have a sea view - room are typically Greek basic but very clean and looked after, everything worked no problem, room safe included, a/c extra but worth it. This was a maisonette style room with a gallery bedroom which was great and different, however... More

The accommodation is very well maintained with nice gardens and amazing views. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location for exploring the old villages of piskopiano, koutouloufari, and old hersonissos is perfect , you will find more interesting bars and tavernas than you can possible fit into one holiday in these villages with everything from high end dining...

We were at the Driades apartments the last week in July/first week in August and could not have wished for a better family holiday. The apartments are well situated in close proximity to 3 small lovely villages or a 20 minute walk to Hersonissos all having superb authentic restaurants reasonably priced. Yes, the apartments are on a hill as previous... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the Driades, which has wonderful views down to Hersionissos, being one of the highest accommodations on the hill. About 15/20 minute walk down & a lit bit longer going back up but if you don't want to walk the taxi price is very reasonable; we walked it every day. The service is excellent but... More
