“The place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

It is located at a magical place with sand dunes right below leading to a shallow water sandy beach. The location is amazing and there is not much else to do but relax. The beach is excellent for small kids since the water is shallow and sandy. Rooms are clean spacious with breathtaking views. There are bikes available with no charge for short rides around.
Tips: snorkeling on the reefs, climbing the east sand dune right before sunset, cover your skin with natural cosmetic clay (is like the one sold in cosmetic stores) that you can find on the far east side of the gulf where there is fresh water coming from the rocks, night swimming.
Negatives: the taverna is not what one would expect in Crete.. it is below average for the local standards but there are other options around. It can get very windy but this is what south Crete is like anyway..

Room Tip: All rooms have good view. Try the ones that are in two levels.

We have been many times to this complex. Nice clean studios with super view of the sea, a fantastic beach where you can have privacy in August and a very nice taverna to eat and relax with perfect view of the sea shore and dunes! Excellent value for money very kind owners daily cleaning.

we absolutely loved our stay. it is a calm place with incredible views and plenty of options for excursions for nature-loving people. very good local food at the beachside restaurant. the beach is absolutely amazing. the whole team was so lovely too. it was a superb stay - our first time - and I understand why people are coming back year after year. tip:you can rent your car directly with them.

Room Tip: apartments on the first floor have a better view. i add a pic taken from our balcony:)

Many thanks to our hosts who were extremely helpful and friendly.
Very nice rooms, beautiful olive trees, gorgeous sea view and perfect sandy beach for small kids especially. The only problem we faced was long way from Heraklion and sometimes wind which can be not too comfortable on the sand beach. But crystall clear sea and perfect accomodation is worth everything :-)
Car rental service is also very comfortable.

Excellent and friendly service together with the extraordinary location makes this the perfect holiday destination for us. The olive trees are beautiful and let the buildings look smaller, which adds to feeling at home.
A good addition is the car rental service that the family started this year.

We highly appreciated our stay: the friendly atmosphère, the beauty of the place, the surrounding, the beach, the appartment, for calm and resourcing holidays
We think that the name of the place "paradiso" is perfectly adequate

Beautiful view on the sea side from the spadeful balcony which make the apartment larger and open to the sky : to stand in early morning, for breakfast and at night to look at the stars. ..

We like this friendly place with its olive trees and the well situated appartments so much. This is why we have been coming back every year for five years now.
The food in the restaurant is excellent.
