We all loved it here, it suited all of us, and none of us wanted to leave. The villa was great - the small pool and good sized garden area gave my children just enough space to use up some energy. The villa was well laid out and the thoughtful touches just fabulous. We arrived late and they had been... More

Paradise Island Villas was recommended to me, I was looking for a short break with a friend to celebrate the beginning of my retirement. From the moment we arrived I knew it was going to be special.

The location for our honeymoon, with my wife only finding out the day we flew! A perfect week and we were so SO sad to leave. Such friendly staff, and they really cannot to enough.

Paradise villas in amazing! Once you get there you won't want to leave - the service is superb. The villa was beautiful, and who doesn't like having their own private pool! I would highly recommend staying here and I will definitely be visiting again.

We have just returned from from a week at Paradise Island Villas with our 1 year old, and 2 year old, and it's the kind of place where it's just as enjoyable for the adults as the kids.

What a super holiday. We were upgraded on arrival. The villa was lovely, our children 3 and 5 years loved our pool and garden. The spiral staircase was a little concerning at first but we then saw the fitted stair gates plus a bed guard too and pool toys and children's plates cups etc provided too. Eleni and Paul were...

My wife son and I are 3 weeks from returning to the place we call Paradise. Reading the travel Magizines I hear that many are canceling reservations for concern that their vacation will be affected by the news. I categorically disagree as the people of Crete want nothing more than to have visitors. What's extraordinary is their hospitality. My son... More

This is great hotel made up of villas ranging 1-bed to 3-bed each with their own little pool (although not heated and pretty cold). There is a large communal pool though which is great next to the reception, restaurant and bar. There are great sea views (the beach is about a ten minute walk south of the hotel). The staff...
