On arrival, my husband and I were openly welcomed by Kostas, Maria, Bill and also the wonderful guests we meet, who have truly become good friends. The 'Fat Frog' bar area has quirky little touches and the adjacent pool is beautifully lit as night falls. Ok, the rooms are basic - but our needs were catered for. After all you get what you pay for!

The surrounding area, especially the new town was beautiful and had plenty of restaurants and tavernas on offer. We hired a scooter which was worth every penny as exploring the island is a must. Kostas has good contacts and kindly arranged our transport. The BBQ night is not to be missed, good quality food which was generously provided. This also provided the perfect opportunity to mingle with guests and the host's and to really get to know people.

Maria makes a lovely full English at a good price too. And my husband highly recommended the coffee. Thanks guys for your hospitality and friendship. We miss you and the place already! Best wishes - until we meet again.

Only have good things to say.
Kostas and Maria are excellent hosts and are more than willing to help with any requests you may have.
Accomodation is basic but clean and well located to explore what Hersonissos has to offer.
We had a great time here and will be returning again.

We have been travelling abroad for some 25 years but never had hosts so willing to make your stay a memorable one Kostas & Maria will give fair reviews on places to eat and visit help with car bike hire so you are getting quality rentals and insurance cover; My view on the rooms is if you are expecting the hilton you will be let down but for me and my wife they were perfect good hot shower with plenty of power, fridge 2 rings sink and kettle good bed and Sophia the maid works hard to keep us sparkling; The pool good to cool off which is what you need all clean and good loungers the bar is managed by Maria and Kostas by day (Maria makes a quality english) leave room for the odd fruit salad with yougurt and honey and chicken wraps evenings after 5pm a gentleman named Bill takes on bar duties where he will encourage you to have a drink or three with the odd raki thrown in Bill you rock man, Air conditioning available at extra cost well worth it ;You will also be mad to miss the BBQ which is one good evening to mingle and make more friends as this will happen here; We feel we got what we paid for plus; We made some more friend Kostas Maria Bill Sophia you are the dream team keep up the good work
All the very best till we see you again thank you for the best holiday ever Ian & Sandra

My wife and I took a break from the usual holiday formats and opted to go 'off-piste' with friends. The main reason for chosing Papadakis Villas after the very reasonable cost was the T/A reviews. Whilst always a little sceptical of the some of the glowing reports I read, it really lived up to its positive billing. The location is ideal - close enough to the main shopping area and restaurants in Koutelafari without being overwhelmed by either. Kostas was spot-on with his recommendations on the latter and Maria was instrumental in refuelling us the following morning with her delicious breakfasts! On the occaisions we returned to the Fat Frog after dinner, the legendary Bill was always on hand to keep things on the lively side (aided by the Raki!). Thank you Bill! A thoroughly relaxing hassle-free holiday with genuine hosts. Testament to that was the barbecue on the Wednesday evening in which we mixed openly with their friends and family. The very friendly environment also encouraged more interaction with the guests and we certainly left Papdakis Villas with fond memories and many new friends. Thank you Kostas and Maria - see you both again soon.
Yamas!

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at papadakis for two weeks! When we arrived Maria met with us in the bar for a free beer explained abit about the apartments and the area which I thought was great as she was very knowledgable! We were taken to our room which was in the courtyard area the room was exactly what we wanted basic but clean to a high standard. The location is great as you can get to the beach easily the best beach is the one to the left, ask Kostas he will explain its easy to find.

We stayed for the free food BBQ night which was amazing loads of food and shots of Raki which were supplied by Bill the best bar man in Crete! If you stop for a cocktail at the bar and it's not on the menu just ask and Bill will make it! Bill also supplies some entertainment after a few Rakis which Is worth sticking around for!! Also the maid came in our room neally every other day emptied the toilet bin and twice a week changed the bedding which I thought was very good for what we paid!

Whilst we were at papadakis we had light bulb which went out in our room we spoke with Bill & Kosta and it was changed that day no problem.

We checked the reviews on here before we went an thought this is too good to be true and we were glad to find out all the positive reviews were spot on! We will return here again I hope in the near future.

Also we met some great people on
holiday from the UK again you know who you are. Tom & Lisa :)
