Excellent location as it is 5-10 mins walk from the village centre with romantic restaurants, shops and giftshops. Hotel grounds are very nice with fruit trees and flowers. When you enter via the main gates, to the left is the clean pool and bar area and after short walk you arrive to the reception and rooms. We arrived late, almost midnight, due to delayed flights. I sent emails to the owner to inform him about our possible arrivals. He would always reply fast and assuring us, that he will wait for us. When we arrived, he was waiting at us at the reception and processed the paperwork fast, gave us basic information and showed us to our room. Efcharisto! The room is not large but enough for 2 people. It had kitchen area with complimentary coffee and water, utensils and plates. Bathroom was clean and nice, room had 2 beds and furniture. We liked it as it was clean, no smells whatsoever. Room service cleaned every day. It was a very relaxing and quiet place, away from the main road and anything noisy. Everybody was polite and nice. Parking was just outside the main gates on the little street in front of the villa. We liked the room and the little romantic village centre.

Lovely surroundings very peaceful away from the main town but plenty of tavernas with in walking distance no more than 10 minute walk. Nikos is very helpful nothing is to much bother if you have a problem. Would recommend hiring some transporter if you like to explore crete in all its glory.

Just returned from a 14 night stay here with my wife (July 2019). The room was a self catering studio with a complementary pod coffee maker which went down a treat. Nice balcony to sit outside whenever you like with facilities to dry your washing as needed. There is a pool but we did not use it as it was a quiet part of the season and the bar was never opened - we probably would have done otherwise. The room was cleaned and the bed was made to a high standard everyday that we were there. There is also an air conditioner in the room which was fantastic. The room had a TV but we never used it. Nikos, said hello every day and made sure we were always happy. Just 5 minutes walk away you have the village of Old Hersonissos with plenty of places to eat and drink and there's a greek night of entertainment in the square every Monday evening - don't forget to book a table at one of the excellent tavernas. Also perhaps bring a water pistol to clear out all the irritating onlookers who stand in the way of all else to video the greek dancers ;). You're also within easy reach to the port of Hersonnissos which is the main resort (about 30 minutes walk downhill - we were never intrepid enough to walk back - 7 Euros in a taxi) and other lovely local villages such as Piskopiano and Koutoulousari (sp?) where you will find some gems like the local museum of Rural Life. If you hire a car/quadbike/scooter you can also visit the wider area of Crete nearby easily, such as Knossos, Heralklion, Elounda, Agios Nikolaos, Spinalonga etc. We had a wonderful holiday here and that was not least down to the warm hospitality of Nikos and his team of friendly staff. Highly recommended!

We booked a studio here for 18 nights. We were not disappointed. Spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom and shower were immaculate. Beds had very comfortable mattresses and pillows. Sheets were changed every 3 days and towels changed every two days but if you need them changed sooner just ask. The windows have net screens which prevent insects coming in, as a result we slept with the window wide open. Fresh air in the room at night made it very comfortable. The kitchen area has everything you need for a self catering holiday. Nikos (the owner) is very kind, friendly and helpful. The pool area is lovely, well maintained and very clean. We had the pool to ourselves quite often. It's only a few minutes walk to Old Hersonossis and a good base to explore other parts of the island. Nikos helped us with organising transfers to and from the airport and ferry port. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone. If you are looking for peace and tranquillity with many amenities available close by then this is the place for you. Local restaurants worth a visit Sofas, Zachos, Myrtios and Harakas all very good. It's Greek night in the village on a Monday night I would advise reserving a table it gets exceptionally busy. We will definitely be back.

This was the best holiday me and my boyfriend could have ever wished for. Was quiet and relaxing and the location was fab! Just round the corner from old hersonissos square where theres loads of restaurants, bakerys and basically anything you would need! The people at Villa Medusa were lovely and let us leave our bags with them all day whilst we waited for our flight. The food in the nearby square was INSANE and i recommend eating at any of those restaurants! The walk to the beach was just under an hour but the walk was so scenic and peaceful it was worth it and we ended up getting taxis back most days as it was cheap enough to. It was the best holiday ever and whenever we are looking to book another one this is how good we want it to be!!!! Perfect week.
