“Can't wait to return”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Wonderful relaxing week for family with 16 year old. Very clean and well presented complex, beds made daily by maid and linen change half way through week. Lovely pools although not very large, plenty of sun-loungers and small play are with see-saw, swings and slide for little ones. Koutouloufari is a fantastic little village with plenty of good restaurants and quite bars, stunningly beautiful in the evening with the subdued lighting and an exceptionally friendly atmosphere. Little to occupy in the daytime apart from lounging by the pools but plenty to do if walk down through the olive groves to Hersonissos. We found the best way to come back up the hill is to walk up Agiou Vasiliou.

Nice location in the centre of Koutouloufari. Spacious, clean apartments. Swimmingpool was a little small, but I went to the beach. Reception and Barstaff very friendly and professional. I have had a wonderfull time in this appartment. Its not luxury, but it has everything I needed for a good stay. My apartment had a balcony with seevieuw.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Astra for 10 nights in July 2013. We had two apartments right next to the pool,opposite Reception, which were a good size, with a balcony, and were cleaned every day. The family owners are all very friendly.The food/drinks/ice cream/milkshakes etc are all very good (we had 2x 15 year olds with us). Eating out is a great experience in the village, with lots of excellent restaurants sited on the main street and around the ancient interesting winding narrow streets. We tried a different one every night, including Patrickos, Sunset, The Rooftop, and the Oniro. The local Greek specialities are very good, and we enjoyed the local 'village wine' for about 8 Euros a litre, and draught beer around 2 Euros.Meals are not cheap nowadays, allow about 15-20 Euros per head with drinks. The mountain backdrop and views out to sea are lovely.Of all the resorts we went though on the Jet2 transfer, this was definitely the best. A trip to Star Beach is worth a go for the flumes etc., or walk down to town and take the local bus (luxury coach) to Stallis Beach. A walk along to Piscopiano and Old Hersonissos (both very quaint with bars/restaurants). Wherever we went though it was always nice to come 'back home' to the Astra and Koutouloufari! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms by the top pool are very well located, or if you don't mind stairs up, top fl...

I stayed here with my family, 4 adults and 4 children in June for a week.We had two rooms both excellent, lovely and clean and a good size. All the staff are lovely and really helpful, we had breakfast every morning and the food was delicious, the children loved the milk shakes and tried all the flavours. We spent most of our time round the swimming pool, there are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. The apartments are in the centre of Koutouloufari within easy reach of many restaurants, we ate out each evening and enjoyed every meal. We walked into Hersonissos and also to Piskopiano and Old Hersonissos.
Our only complaint was that we had not booked for 2 weeks, we will definitely be returning as we were made to feel so welcome and had such a great time.
Highly recommended!!!

I stayed here for a week with my boyfriend at the beginning of July and cannot recommend the place enough.

The room was a nice size. Bathroom was the smallest I have had staying in Greece but it was adequate as you don't spend much time in there. We stayed above the bar and didn't struggle to sleep at all. The staff were absolutely lovely and always cheerful.

We ate at the bar a few times and the food was delicious and a very reasonable price. There are two pools both with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas

The apartments are right in the middle of Koutouloufari and you can walk to Piskopiana and Old Hersonisoss or down the hill into Hersonisoss and the port. Its about 20-25 minutes to walk down. The walk up is manageable. I'm not a great one for fitness and I managed it 3 times although the 3rd time was a struggle.
