“Peace and complete relaxation”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Paradisos is perfect. Andreas and Katerina are so welcoming and kind: we always find oil and wine in our apartment - and this year the fridge was full of grapes! There is genuine regard for all visitors here; Katerina says guests become friends and she loves to see them return. Judging by the number of familiar faces we've seen here over the years, her thoughtfulness and care are greatly appreciated. Sitting in the taverna (a stone's throw from the studios), looking out over the huge sandy beach and listening to the waves, we always feel unbelievably lucky to have found this place.

We stayed for almost two weeks in Paradisos. The owners greeted us warmly, and provided some special items that we had previously asked for through Email. We immediately felt relaxed, and were delighted when we saw our room and the view of the sea from its upstairs balcony.
The room was modern, though with traditional ceiling and woodwork. It was well-appointed and lacked nothing. (The shower was the best we've had in over fifteen years of visiting Crete!)
Everything was beautifully clean, and the room was serviced regularly and to a high standard throughout our stay.
All the rooms are close to the sea. The beach and sea were the best we have experienced. It was handy to have a nearby taverna, serving excellent traditional food, and also to have the free use of bicycles for early morning rides down to the harbour for coffee. It was a wrench to leave and we were very appreciative of all that Andreas and Katerina did to help our stay be so memorable.
Thoroughly recommended !

My wife and I have been around Crete a lot as well as other countries but lately we come back again and again to this place (>5 times). It is the best combination of excellent accommodation, great long sandy beach, being away from the crowds and at the same time not too far (30 min drive) from the ferry boat in Sfakia to other places (Samaria gorge, Gavdos, etc). Taverna above the beach is very good and convenient, don't have to go anywhere unless you want to explore more. Will definitely come next summer too.

Lovely clean family run apartments, the owners are wonderful people. Our apartment had a big kitchen, a veranda and two rooms, each with its own private shower/bathroom. The location is wonderfully peaceful, the beach literally a few steps away, just beyond the garden. Many of the people we met here had been coming to this same place for years. The fabulous nearby taverna has a fantastic sea view and serves home cooked local food.

Great place to be. Great people to be with, helpful, real people. Great beach, big, quiet, unique. Big rooms, clean, fully equiped. Great view to the sea from our balcony (especially the front ones) and from the tavern where you can eat well cooked traditional food. It combines the authentic hospitality of the people with the professional service of a hotel.
Many thanks to Katerina and Andreas, the owners of the place for everything and for the valuable information that helped us to explore the place.

Room Tip: if you are lucky enough to find a room in the first floor you will have better view to the sea

If you are looking for relax and a wonderful sea... you have to come here. Apartments are very confortable and clean. They are very close to the sea and the beach is fantastic! there is also a very good taverna where you can taste cretan dishes.

TThe family who own the apartments do all they can to make your stay wonderful. Their (also family owned) taverna on the dunes above the beach is now a really good restaurant and the food is nearly all local and always freshlly cooked (the wine and raki are also amazing).
There are a range of apartments but we like to have a big balcony and also a lovely view (about 270 degrees) so like the slightly larger ones which are also the most private. All are well maintained and the linen and towels are changed very regularly. Bicycles are available to borrow and there is also a general use washing machine.
We'd almost rather not tell anyone about Paradisos and keep it to ourselves (as we have for about 10 years) and the few English families who make the journey over the mountains to the beautiful south coast of Crete - well away from the big hotels and crowds of the north coast.

Room Tip: All have a seaview of some sort but we love those facing westwards which means we can have a lovely...
