The location is superb- away from the crowds, overseeing the bay of Chersonisos. Staff is very friendly and always helpful, supporting you to make the best of your day. Maria is the super star! The breakfast has variety and always some Cretan specialties. The semi-private pool (we actually shared with one with the neighbours) is so clean and large enough... More

I booked a last minute holiday to Crete and the Golden Villas. What a very pleasant surprise I had. My apartment was very spacious, spotless and very comfortable with 2 balconies overlooking Hersonissos and the sea. I must point out that you must take time and make the effort to get to know the staff. Yannis and his team Nico,... More

If beautiful sea views in a quiet setting with your own private balcony, terrace and swimming pool are important features for you then I highly recommend Golden Villas. Friendly staff. Great value for the level of space and facilities. You could easily spend your whole time relaxing watching the sea, sunbathing or taking a dip in your pool. Will come... More

Stayed at the Golden Villas in a villa with a private pool. Accommodation was dated but we didn't have a problem with this. To have a villa with a private pool for the price we paid I thought was amazing value for money. Our villa was at the very top of the complex so walking back up to it was... More

We just returned home from 2 weeks touring Crete. Golden Villas is a perfect touring base for the East. We didn't book this till last minute and got a great price. Cleaning was sparcd but the friendliness of the staff made up for it, if you are out and about you will hardly notice. If you have trouble with stairs... More

By the moment we entered the villa we were disappointed. The interior was impractical, the cleanliness unsatisfactory and there was also dampness on the walls. The pool was not so private, as the neighbours were just two steps away and we also doubt if it was cleaned. Another big minus was the parking, being always full and totally inconvenient, unless...

This hotel, I would immediately took at least two stars, still wonder how this hotel could have earned four stars and such an assessment. Dirt, without basic hygiene and hotel toilet facilities, kitchen, storage space, etc. Old and scruffy hotel beach without options available for how to Crete and its surrounding environs and other accommodation belongs. If you do not... More
