Thought twice about writing this review because this is the kind of place you want to remain unspoiled and to keep for yourself. The rooms are basic but have all the necessities. We had two rooms and a balcony to ourselves right next to a waterfall and fell asleep to the sound of the waterfall. The place is right on a beautiful beach but there are no chairs or shade but the hotel does have umbrellas you can borrow. And after the beach you can shower in the waterfall. Food is good and reasonably priced so you don't have to go anywhere if you don't want to. The owner Adonis makes you feel like you are a special guest. So if you want peace and quiet and rest in a beautiful setting then this is the place.

My partner and I visit frequently Crete. This is our favorite Taverna in Crete, and we end up eating there every day when we stay in Crete. Maria makes amazing traditional Cretan food. It is diverse, fresh, healthy and absolutely delicious. Everyone can find here dishes for their taste. Whether you are a carnivore, a vegan, a vegetarian, a sea food freak, this is your place. Besides, Maria and her son Adonis are so nice. They are generous and friendly, and they will do whatever they can to make you feel great and enjoy your experience. And if this is not enough, their place is located on one of the nicest beaches in southern Crete. You can enjoy a beautiful walk, swim, or simply watch the sunset from the Taverna's balcony. Thank you Maria and Adonis, Alix and Yonatan

Victor Hugo wrote in the Les Miserables novel: "a sight greater than the sea is sky, greater than the sky is the human soul". Strict harsh and mesmerizing beauty of southern Crete, where time slows down and even stops and eternity speaks to you. Also say, Crete can not drive the young, you may not have time to see the rest of the world. Blessed are those true Crete lovers, who have not yet been to Ligres. Ligres - is something magical! space and time there take another meaning. You can walk through a long beach, swim... being absolutely one watching sunset and sunrise! And if there are starlight moments in the world, then it is precisely them. There must be at least one night spend, and a better place than Villa Maria simply does not exist! Many thanks to the hospitable owners Maria and Andonis, who designed and built this Villa with their own hands, and their hard selfless work thanks to which, having been once, you will come back again and again. Paradise exists only in Heaven, but on Earth there are places that are very close to Paradise and Ligres with its Villa Maria is definitely one of such places. Complete zen state of mind.

Villa Maria, at Ligres Beach, is the kind of experience one fantasizes about - a beautiful, secluded beach, a family-run resort with fantastic food, and almost no one else around to clutter the experience. We stayed for several days in a very clean, comfortable room, for a very economical price. I would recommend the sea view for sure! The pristine beach with deep, clear waters was steps away, and we were given recommendations for other amazing beaches as well. Besides the locale, there is a very comfortable veranda where meals are served. Without exception, we had the best food at Villa Maria on our entire trip! Tony and his family worked tirelessly to meet everyone's every need. It was a fantasy trip and we hope to return soon!

Stayed here for two weeks end of June start of July and Antonis and his family couldn’t have looked after me any better , great food great location friendly staff , accommodation is clean and well maintained and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and will definitely return again , I hiked and walked and found Villa Maria the ideal base in which to explore the surrounding area , mostly unspoilt and not touched by mainstream tourism this is the ideal place to get away from it all, 10 out of 10 without a doubt
