Villa Vicky Apartments

Reviewed September 13, 2012

just back from a wonderful stay, predominantly in the delightful villa vicky (5 nights), but partly also across the road in the super neighbouring nicholas villas (3 nights). we were given the very warmest of welcomes at villa vicky, in spite of our last minute booking (we were lucky to get even 5 nights in our first choice at this busy time). the apartments were clean, well equipped and well-serviced. attentive help was on hand when required. the gardens were beautiful, the pool clean and well-maintained, but the main thing to note was the remarkably friendly, calm and fun atmosphere around the place, driven by all the staff, but especially by manos, the wonderful bar-tender who got everyone talking together round the bar area and where little impromptu international soirees developed regularly. we met people who have been coming back to villa vicky for many years, sometimes more than once a year...that says it all. there is something quite magical and unusually relaxing and welcoming about the place. many thanks to the gracious and conscientious patrons and their family and once again, to manos, bar-tender of the century, all of whom helped to make this a very special stay.
we hired our motorbikes from "euroriver" just a few kms away in stalis and would highly recommend their machines and services (also hired from them last year). villa vicky is a good base for adventuring around the eastern side of crete. great spot for eating out to all tastes and budgets or simple self-catering eg our greek-style meals on the balcony after a couple of g&ts (well -stocked "select" supermarket minutes away

We arrived home from Villa Vicky Hersonissos a month ago and after 2 hours in our own house we wanted to go back.
The place is actually a beautiful garden with exotic fruit (that you can eat) everywhere and everything is tidy and clean. The owners, their family and their staff makes a great effort for your holiday to be the best it can possibly be, the rooms are surprisingly spacious, and there is very good cleaning six days a week with heaps of clean towels. Airconditioning works well, even though it costs you 86 EURO extra for two weeks and there is only one in the room. The bar and pool area are small but excellent and there is always a spare sunbed. The staff in the bar were absolutely fantastic with us, and especially our kids, and they even had a go-home present for my youngest (5 years old). The food they serve in the bar is very good and it is not expensive (but why do the crete restaurants have to serve fries with everything!!, LOL).
If you walk 10 minutes up the hill from the hotel you go into a very nice, small village with small shops and very good restaurants that serve everything from Chinese to traditional Meze. 5 minutes walk from the hotel in the other direction brings you to the beach area and if you can bare to walk 10 minutes more in the heat you can find small private beaches and even your own lagune. The beaches are very nice (not as nice as in Cyprus though) with both sand and stones.
The best part for us though, a family with small kids was that outside the Star Beach Hotel (obs; big party hotel at night) at the beach there is a FREE Waterworld area with plenty of slides in multiple pools that kids can play with. There are also waterslides for the elder kids (15 EUROS for a day), bungyjumping, parachuting, bananas etc. The Star Beach outside dining area also has the best lunch menu in Hersonissos as far we could tell :-)
Going into the city (5 minutes walk from the hotel) there are plenty of restaurants (we fell in love with No Name 10 minutes from the hotel) and shops, but the shops remind me of Thailand with plenty of fake branded clothing and cheap souvenires. Not much to buy.
All in all I can recommend Villa Vicky as a quiet and very nice hotel. We would wish there were more families with kids there because the Hotel is so intimate that kids get to know eachother very quick, but that is not Villa Vickys fault.
Anyway, we will most definetly be back next year :-)

Room Tip: Chose a room on the second floor. They all have very nice views :-)

The hotel is well-located, very close to the center of Hersonissos but it is a quite place to relax. The place is extremely beautiful with nice gardens, many corners to sit and drink your coffee and a small fountain. People of the hotel are excellent providing great hospitality!

The rooms and the whole hotel were very clean!

Room Tip: Choose the backside rooms. They are more quite and they have nice view to the garden.
