Arolithos Traditional Cretan Village is really a very special case. It is a hotel at the form of an old village of Crete. Constructed at the form of an old village it travels us back to the past times. The rooms are very standard but with the necessary services. There is a magnificent swimming pool with a breathtaking view over the city of Heraklion and the valley.

We were taken to this place for Greek Easter Sunday lunch from the cruise ship Aegean Odyssey. We enjoyed an excellent lunch with plenty of wine and some splendid entertainment. The atmosphere was very pleasant and welcoming.

We visited the place on the day of the Orthodox Easter. It was the best thing we did. We attended the Easter day sermon at the picturesque chapel that exists within the grounds of the resort. The bell was ringing and the people were chanting uplifting our spirit regardless our personal beliefs. After that it was Perhaps 2 o'clock and we went for the Traditional Easter lunch . The food and the service was excellent plenty to drink and Eat. It was a set price They had a Traditional Cretan band playing and after a couple drinks almost everybody was dancing. Just a remark Perhaps for next year. Been Easter day lunch l would've LOVED to have red eggs to crack!!!!!!!!!

We had a room quite near to the road, but it had the most amazing view over both the city and the surrounding mountains. We sat on the balcony most evenings watching the sunset. The 'village' is on the side of a hill and has many steps but you soon get used to them. It was probably the most attractive village we saw on our holiday. Our room was big with a nice bathroom. Beds were comfy which is rare in Greece! The taverna or the café were open every day for food which is good, basic fare but well cooked and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommend. We'll certainly be back.
