Cretan Villa Hotel & Apartments
Ranked #3 of 24 Hotels in Ierapetra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Ierapetra isn't known for tourists. It is working town and therefore architecturally its not anything to write home about. So finding the Cretan Villa was a steal. It has a beautiful courtyard and clean comfortable rooms. Its well worth the money and the owner was so friendly and helpful we didn't need a guidebook to find the best places to eat and see.

excellent hotel just 200 metres from the town center of ierapetra and so close to all the local amenities. although close to the centre the hotel is situated in a quite street that is fit for a tranquiill night sleep. building is a traditional cretan villa refurbished in a very modern way with fast internet connection, sattelite tv etc. hotel has a nice inside garden with tables and chairs and shadow for relaxation. hotel staff are very helpful in giving you guidance over the local attraction and tourism sites. rooms very spacious and fresh naturally but you can also use the aircondition facilities of the room.
It is a nice base to have in case you are travelling to eastern crete. Ierapetra is a nice town as well with many nice beaches within the town (200 metres from the hotel) but also outside the town in a radious of 10 kilometres in case you want to find a deserted beach. Nightlife and food is also good with most bars and restaruants clustered around the seaside avenue. A must go is the chrissi island. boat trips daily from ierapetra to there. each trip is about 40 mins.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our three nights stay here. The room was peaceful and clean. The hotel is just a a couple of minutes walk from the beachfront but it exudes cool and calm. The little courtyard was a pleasant place to sit with a complimentary coffee from Manos, the friendly owner. He didn't rate my map of Crete so promptly gave me his own. And he gave my husband a row for working too much! Lovely place, thanks, Manos, for all your help. We'll be back.

Our family of three stayed in a triple room which was comfortable and well furnished. Great location, very well presented small hotel. The owner helpful with any queries. Our room was close to lots of good restaurants and beaches . It is reasonably priced for the location and we will come again if we have the pleasure of visiting Ierapetra again.

The room was small and poorly furnished. Door didn't close very well. The bathroom was small and not very clean, and generally the whole room wasn't very clean either. The hotel is in the city center, which means that when you open the window you see the street, the neighbours yards and balconies, in short it's really cramped. The owner is irritating and not very helpful, even to a Greek, let alone the foreigners.

A friendly little hotel in a pretty part of town away from the main tourist area and a few steps from the central beach of Ierapetra. Our room was cosy and clean. Free wireless Internet.
Manos was very friendly and he recommended us the most excellent eating places and beaches that was the highlight and ending of our great week in Crete. Highly recommended for travellers seeking authenticity - less for luxury seekers.

If you choose Cretan Villa, it's great to be really in the middle of Iarapetra and in a very nice, clean, friendly and caracteristic hotel. But what is really amazing is to enjoy the real Crete, thanks to the quick suggestion and tips you can get from the owner, Manos. When we (my wife and I) travel for holidays, we like to be involved in the local life and understand it, feel it? We like to visit beaches mostly known only to local people? We like to eat in caracteristic restaurants, together with greek people and not in restaurants built for touirists, sometimes enjoiyng local live music in a friendly enviroment and pay the rigth (low) price? That's definitly 'Cretan Villa' in Ierapetra! We are thinking to come back again in Crete, hoping to do it asap!
