We had a three bedroom, three bathroom villa with private pool everything about it was excellent with extra touches including sandwiches, fruit and drinks in our villa on arrival as we arrived late and the owners thought we would be hungry. Eleni and Pol were so helpful and very welcoming. I would definitely book here again.

With 2 boys of 7 and 9, finding somewhere that we can all enjoy is difficult but Paradise Island Villas was perfection from start to finish. As previous reviews have said the outstanding customer service is what makes the stay unique and makes the holiday a holiday. Having your own individual space and pool but being able to join others... More

Eleni and Pol are superb hosts, warm and welcoming and all the staff were so friendly and efficient. The villas are spotless, the garden and small pool perfect for relaxing during the day and cooling off.

From start to finish this was a perfect holiday. We travelled with family as a group of 15 spanning three generations. Eleni and Pol were the best hosts I have come across, so friendly, so welcoming and so helpful in every way possible. Michael, Babis and Stelios, the waiting staff during the day and evening, were amazing - friendly, professional,... More

Eleni and Pol are fabulous hosts - nothing is too small for them or any of their staff. The villa was excellent with the benefit of our own pool and garden but it was also good to have a choice of 2 other pools. The service and food is also top class and we could have spent the full week... More

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.
