We stayed at Papadakis Villas is September our initial reaction was that the pool was small and the rooms basic but this was not important. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the apartments and complex. Costas, Maria, Yiannas and Alexandros were superb. Their hospitality was second to none and they did their up most to ensure all the guests met each other and that we all had a good time. We will definitely be going back. Thanks once again

Just returned from a 2 week holiday in the Papadakis villas. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday mainly due to the warm welcome and hospitality shown by the owners Kostas and Maria. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Yiannis is the best barman you will ever find. His English is excellent and he looks after all guests so well. The nearby villages of Koutouloufari, Piskopiano and Old Hersonnisos are beautiful, not-to-be-missed and are reached by a 10 minute walk uphill from the apartments. We like to go to a different holiday destination each year but we will definitely be back here! Thnks Kostas, Maria, Yiannis and Alehandro.

Best holiday! Classy,clean, comfortable.Great location. Went alone and well looked after. Lovely owners and staff - warm,smart,welcoming people with no pretensions.
Yannis runs a brilliant bar - great music (important to me), works hard to make it happen and keep everybody happy. Witty too.Hurrah for raki fuelled life affirming laughs, is what i say! This monkey's gone to heaven.
Good memories, good people. Many thanks and love to all.....x

Just got back from one of the nicest holidays ive had. We arrived late and were welcomed by the always happy Yannis who showed us to our room.

The location was perfect with some amazing restaurants just a short walk up the hill. Kosta and Maria were always friendly and helpful.

We were treated to a lovely meal of Souvlaki during our stay, and copious ammounts of Raki (which resulted in a couple of rough days!)

The appartments were lovely, basic but everything that we needed was there! The pool area had sun all day. Yannis and Alehandro made our holiday with their non stop entertainment, and friendly banter!

Overall it was an amazing holiday and I would highly recommend it!!!

This is a small complex of 17 rooms with a authentic feel, Yes the rooms are basic but are clean and have all you need for your stay. The Location is Excellent 10 mins walk down the hill and you are on the beach and harbour and 10 mins up the hill and you are in the old town, the best traditional Greek restaurants are here.
The Owners Kostas and Maria could not have been more helpful during our stay, it was like staying with family, getting guests together at night with free food and plenty of Raki.
Yannis who serves at the bar is the best barman, we have come across on all our travels, So witty, funny, and makes sure all the guests are happy.
To sum it up, we went for a chilled Holiday and that's what we got and we could not have wished for anything more from our experience at the Papadakis villas, we made some new great friends, are will be back as soon as we can to meet them again.
Luv and miss you all. You to Alex X

Just returned from a fabulous holiday couldnt of wished for more!!

First impressions of the hotel were not great if im honest the pool area looked too small and the rooms very basic however within 24hrs we had completely changed our minds are were very impressed. The rooms are basic but typical for Greece and more than adequate for our needs- just room to sleep in at night. The pool area is small only 12 sun beds however we never failed to get sunbed even when not going to pool area at 1-2.

The location of the hotel is great we preferred to go up to the villages- more traditional greek restaurants and better value for money- would recommend galinis food was excellent as was service

The service at the hotel is best we have experienced. The first night there we were all so tired and Yannis kindy ordered us a take away from down town. Third night there all guests were treated to free food- souvaki, toasted bread and tszaki and that was delicious. Staff are so helpful and welcoming we were disappointed to have to leave.

Would definately return to this resort and this hotel!

We arrived at 6am and called Kosta who arrived within minutes and showed us to our apartment and told us we would sort everything out later and to have a nice sleep, which we chose not to do but explore the surrounding area instead. The location is excellent with the old village up the hill, where we found some of the best restaurants and the sights and sounds of Hersonissos down the hill but what really made our holiday was the staff, Yannis, Maria, Kostas and Alehandro, we really cannot thank them enough, they recommended George for our car hire and lots of places for us to explore and see, this really was the best holiday both of us have ever had, we have already recommended to everyone we can and will deifnately be back next year, it was like leaving old friends when we left - we miss you all............ xx

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Halfway between the center of hersonisos, famous for the busy nightlife, and the traditional village of Koutouloufari is our property. It is placed in an ideal location that gives access to both directions and meanwhile it's peaceful with nice views to the mountain and the beach.The small amount of rooms(17 rooms) along with our commitment to our guest's pleasure makes this place ideal for people who like to meet people on their holidays and have the feeling of living in a small Greek community.Our pool area is set next to a pool bar that provides cold drinks and homemade food based on our local culture, using Cretan products and vegetables from our own garden. The hotel was built 28 years ago and it's been passed from the parents to the children to continue the traditional family business.Almost every week we cook complimentary food for our guests to join and share our Greek philosophy.All ages are welcome but our statistics say that couples often prefer staying with us ... more   less
