Had a great time here. Villa was very spacious with good air con that was needed. Pool was lovely. Staff were very friendly, we had a late flight and they let us stay in the villa all day on our last day, which was a nice touch. Main things to do are in Kolymbari which is a 25 minute walk. However, also some restaurants and supermarkets closer by if you don't fancy the walk. It's not party central but more than fine if you want a nice relaxing break. Nice and peaceful and highly recommended. (also I'm not sure a few of the reviews for these villas are actually referring to these villas. Especially the one reviewing a hotel as these are self-catering villas!)
My wife and I just went back from 14 very nice day on Selini Villa. It is our second time to be there and for sure we will come there again! Things are getting betther with the new owner. Every thing is nice and clean! Getting cleaned every day. The staff is very sweet and very friendly they do there very best to give u a pleasant stay! We can only recomand it very warm!.....Thanks to them all for give us 14 nice day there!
Positives were, very clean, pool area great, no reserving sun beds. Negatives, staff attitude need training and to smile. Food, very limited and poor quality little or no thought to breakfast, and although I eat meat very little for vegetarians. Repetitive boring hospital canteen food Staff. Although friendly no where near enough of them. One person on a busy bar means queues and you have to keep the same glass all night as no one to collect or clean them. Drinks. Worst all inclusive drinks ever, little or no alcohol in them limited to two cocktail choices per day or pay 5 euros if you want a different choice, we ended up walking up the road to a bar to get a decent drink. Beach. Unloved pebbly beach huge drop off at the waters edge, very rough seas as windy red flags out daily no one went there Manager. Complained to manager who was not interested and said I was entitled to my opinion. well I paid over £1600 for a week there and vote with my feet. Never going back and would not recommend it to anyone else…
My wife and I just came home from 14 nice day in Selini Villas. We had a very nice time there and want to thank the friendly gadener Vasilly who came every day with a big smile and some fruit and also a special thanks to the very sweet and helpsom Nancy from Selini Suite. We did really enjoy the 14 days there. Using the pool very much every day, really relaxing. We did had the rented car all 14 days, so we was a lot around, but best was the pool because of the very warm and nice weather. Ones again thanks to these 2 people there was so nice and sweet. WIFI could have been bether,,,,,,,,very bad signal.
Beautiful Villa, so much better than we imagined for what we paid for it. There were four of us but would sleep more. 3 bedrooms, 1 upstairs with 2 balcony's and en-suit shower room and 2 lower ground floor large double bedrooms with shower/WC. Large kitchen with full utilities and large lounge with big TV, every room was fully air conditioned. Outside: Large pool and pool table, also table tennis table. BBQ and large seating area seating up to 10 people. 6 large sun loungers. Simply could not fault it in any way shape or form. Beautiful. One advisory: Car is a neccesity.
What a great place, we really enjoyed our week in this super villa in beautiful surroundings. It was spotlessly clean and had everything you need. The bonus is Vassily the Gardener and handyman who is an absolute gem bringing gifts of freshly picked fruits and nuts every day with a welcoming smile. Would definitely come back to this place. We had a hire car and were glad off this but if you like cycling there are bikes available. Nothing was too much trouble for the Selini staff. Loved it.
Large villa, very clean and well maintained. Easy to find once collected keys from Selini Suites just up the road. Welcomed with complimentary bottle of wine and fresh fruit. Had read about friendly helpful gardener/handyman - he was an absolute joy. We found out he's from Albania and his daughter is one of the cleaners. He would bring us fresh figs and found water polo ball for us to use in the pool. He's always smiling and helped us when our A/C needed bit of attention - he rang the linked Selini Suites and got the repair man to us within an hour. This was our first visit to Crete and we are very pleased to pick this area. Saw lots of local traditional life. You must have hire car to get around but would recommend you take bus into Chania. Parking in Chania is not easy and the bus is cheap and convenient. The bus stop is just few yards down the lane on main road by the blue church. Chania is absolutely beautiful and a must if you stay here. Washing machine very useful with airer on balcony with pegs. Dishwasher came with tabs. Glad I took my own hairdryer as one provided did not work well. Don't bother taking your own iron as one provided with ironing board worked well. No mirrors in bedrooms so take you own - easier for drying hair etc is someone using bathroom. …
We have just stayed here for a week and cannot fault these villas. Well maintained gardens and pool cleaned daily. Gardener always has a smile on his face and brings fresh fruit from the gardens. Cleaners also very friendly and welcoming. Shops and restaurants all within walking distance but recommend hiring a car to see more of the island. Also only 45 mins from Chania airport by car. You collect the keys from the Selini Hotel just up the road. If you want privacy and some peaceful time to relax then these villas are highly recommended. Thank you for helping to make our holiday most enjoyable.
Recently had our family 10 day holiday the Selini Villas. Chose the villa to suit our needs (4 teenage girls 13-15) but wanted the all inclusive option. The Selini Suites hotel was a ten minute walk away, or 2 minutes on the free mountain bikes provided at the villa. We were initially concerned about the distance but soon came to enjoy walk and using the bikes. The facilities at the villa were excellent, very clean, 2 bathrooms, washing machine, gorgeous private pool, lounge area, 3 bedrooms. Only downside we can possibly mention is the lack of mirrors (only fitted in bathrooms), a huge issue for teenagers!! Vasili the gardener was a fantastic help, he brought our kids inflatables for the pool that had been left behind, he cleaned down the pool area every morning and brought us fresh figs off the nearby trees, an real gentleman - can't sing his praises enough. The facilities at the hotel were great too. The staff extremely helpful and friendly, food was excellent with plenty of choice - even for the fussiest of teenagers! Hotel is very clean and tidy, pretty quiet though with entertainment one night a week only, so don't go expecting to do the conga round the pool every night with the holiday reps. Joking aside the place was nice and chilled out, family friendly - which suited us perfectly. Definitely worth getting the bus from directly outside the hotel door. Recommend a boat trip from Kolombari, and shopping trips to Plantanias / Chania. Buses are cheap and all have air con.…
We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa with swimming pool. There are 8x villas in this location, which is 1Km from the centre of Kolymbari fishing village. The villa is very modern with all amenities (air con, heating, etc.) with plenty of room for 6x people. The free Wi-Fi is intermittent, but always managed to connect when on the roof terrace ! The pool was very nice with a garden area around it with loungers. The villas are a little remote in terms of access to a beach or village, so would recommend a car. There are free bicycles to use. The handyman responsible for the villas was very nice and checked that everything was okay every time he saw us in the morning or evening. Make sure you eat in Kolymbari, in one of the restaurants overlooking the bay/small harbour; all are great,
