Villa Iokasti
Ranked #7 of 13 Hotels in Koutouloufari
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Was recommended to eat here by our timeshare as the best place to eat in Koutouloufari and was not disappointed. Unlike most restaurants in the village, which offer mainland Greek dishes, this was a modern take on traditional Cretean cuisine. They also offered delicious wine from the family vineyard and a home made cherry brandy. Hostess was charming and her husband is the chef. Very welcoming, despite this being their last day open at the end of the season.

Thankyou for for a fabulous holiday Katie and Dimitris.

Villa Iokasti was very difficult to find as there was no signs with street names but the village, Koutouloufari, is a very nice place with lots of restaurants with sea view and you can go shopping for hours. Villa Iokasti is a nice place with 15-20 apartments, some with sea view. The apartments are comfortable and if you need anythingh you just ask the very frienly staff. There is a nice and clean pool with sunbeds. We had a relaxing time by the pool. The restaurant also had sea view and we had dinner at the restaurant three times during the week and it was very deliciously. All week we were served by Catie, who took very good care of us. She is very nice and friendly, she helped us with tickets and when we had trouble with our rented car, she phoned the company and arranged another car for us. Don´t rent your car by a cheap company, ask Catie, she will recommend af good company. We had a very good holiday and we would like to come back some day.

me and my 2 sisters staied at lokasti at the end of july for 5 days. the hospitalty was so great ! seems like thay have been whaiting just for us!
the location is perfect, very close to hersonissos (last than 10min up the hill) and yet far enough from all the noise of the main road and beach (hersonissos is fool of tourist in that time and we wanted to sleep good at night..)
we rented a car and travel around crete for 5 days and it was a graet place to come back every evening.

only one minus, the aircon was in one room only, so if you sleep in the other roon no aircon at all. ( we took a room for four people)

Room Tip: we took a room for 4 pepole, the room inculeded every thing we nedeed - refrigerator , a littel oven...
