Very clean room in a quiet place in Koukounaries forest, 5 minutes walk to Koukounaries beach. The lady who ownes the hotel is very friendly and did her best for us to have a relaxing holiday. A minus is that there is no pool in the hotel but the owner mas made an agreement with a near by hotel so we were almost covered with it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We stayed in a very well presented apartment suite. The rooms were well furnished and (mostly) tastefully decorated, if a bit cluttered for my taste. This is very spacious and three adults or a family with kids can stay there. It is not however without its problems. The blinds on the doors and windows appeared to be made of tinfoil and were wholly inadequate. Being woken by the sun at six in the morning is completely unacceptable for accomondation in this price range. The kitchen was lavishly equipped, but the ventilator above the oven wasn't working, meaning the appartment was left smelling of whatever we had just cooked. Again, this is unacceptable for accomondation aimed at the higher end of the market. Some of the fixtures were also in poor condition. The grounds had some nice touches, particularly a barbeque and a tree-house for the kids, though I would personally prefer rather less concrete but on the whole it has a satisfying ambiance.

Have stayed at Villa Driades for 5 nights in July of 2012 with my family and counldn't have asked for more. The hotel is inside the forest, the rooms are lovely and clean (we stayed at the Maisonettes). The location is excellent, good value for money and is located close to the lovely beaches of Koukounaries, Banana, Agia Eleni etc and about 15 minutes from the center of the island by car. I couldn't have asked for more and surely wil stay again there!!!

This was our 3rd visit to Koukounaries and Villa Driades was the best accommodation that we have found in the area. Villa Driades is located 50 meters or so off of the path/track that leads off of the main road of Koukounaries, down the side of the Mandraki Village hotel. It is situated after the Koukounaries camping site but is not as far down the path as the Myrtia and the (now defunct) Amalia Apartments. As the path/track is not lit it is essential to bring a decent torch! The apartments and grounds were very well maintained and the "new" block that we stayed in (in a studio with jacuzzi bath) seemed just that - everything from the exterior to the interior was in an excellent state of repair. Our apartment was on the ground floor and we had a spacious and pleasant patio area which we often used have drinks and/or dinner. The apartments are set in 2 acres of grounds so they're peaceful and feel quite secluded. There are a lot of photos on the Villa Driades website and they are all good re3presentations of the accommodation.

The apartments were cleaned daily (the cleaner even did our washing up which was a bonus!) and sheets/towels were changed three times a week. The owners (Maria & George) were very friendly and met us upon arrival and showed us the facilities. There was even a bottle of chilled champagne as a welcome gift which was appreciated. The price that we paid included use of the safe and air conditioning and wireless internet, all of which functioned perfectly.
The location was ideal - close to the beaches, restaurants and shops. The locals were all very friendly and welcoming. A restaurant we would recommend is 'Infinity Blue' which is a bus ride away (bus stop 15) as the views are excellent and the service was very welcoming indeed.
We would definitely return back to Villa Driades.
