I have been staying here since I was 9 years old - I'm 20 now and would not stay anywhere else. George is a wonderful man - great cook and very friendly. His father is also lovely. The apartments are basic, but very clean and comfortable. The pool is spotless, and I feel very at home every time I stay... More

My first time staying at Villa Ritsa and it definitely will not be the last. There is nowhere else I would stay in Crete. The owners are very warm people and treat you like family, it's very basic, very simple but very clean. I would recommend this place to anyone, it's not too far from the beach either and a... More

Been coming here since 2003 and always enjoyed it. George, the owner, is a lovely man and very happy and helpful. Great pool area that gets the sun all day. We had downstairs rooms with a nice little area at the back with a table and chairs. Highly recommended.

Stayed for one week at Villa Ritsa in a ground floor studio. Rooms very basic and had a little terrace, both kept spotlessly clean with a change of towels once during the week and bins emptied every day. We had been looking forward to a nice chill out relaxing holiday by the pool. Unfortunately there is a very busy, very... More

We have just returned from a last minute holiday at Villa Rista. What a fantastic place. We were met by George who was a brilliant host, very friendly and always there if you needed him. The one bedroom apartment was a fantastic size, just what you expect in Greece basic but very very clean. The pool area ( that caught... More

We stayed at the Villa Rista recently, l must admit was not expecting much as it was only a 2* but was pleasantly surprised. George the owner was very accommodating and was there to make your stay comfortable. We stayed in a studio which was basic, clean and had a small terrace. If you prefer a balcony go for the... More

I booked last minute for a 4 night stay and all I needed was a place to sleep on a night. I like to get out and about so just wanted somewhere close to the beach and with a few bars and restaurants. The 2* rating did concern me at first however after checking the reviews, saying how clean the... More
