This was our third stay at Iokasti, every arrival is a sort of homecoming.
The owners (Katie & Dimitris) always do their utmost to make you feel at home, and trust me, you do.
The appartments are well sized and equipped (depends on what you expect, of course).
The pool area is well kept. The location in the village is good.
The food is wonderful, modern but traditional meals of high quality, served by friendly staff, in a lovely atmosfear.
Would I recomend Iokasti to friends? Damn sure!
Will we go again?
Hell Yeah!

IOCASTI is the best place to stay in Koutouloufari. The warm welcome and the great hospitality of the owners Katie and Dimitris is unique. Together with their friendly staff, they make you feel like at home and ensure that your stay at Iocasti will remain unforgettable. The restaurant offers excellent and typical greek food based on biological products. Dimitris as chef is creating specialities with original cretan taste. Katie and Dimitris are the best hosts you can find in Crete, a place to recommend at any time of the season. We look forward to come back very soon. Rose-Marie & Mario from Switzerland

Iokasti Hotel is a small, cosy hotel in Koutouloufari with a beatiful view at the harbour of Hersonisos.

I can't comment on the hotel's accommodations as we did not stay there, but the food and service we had in the hotel's restaurant was easily the best we'd experienced in Koutouloufari. We ate there on three separate occasions during our two week stay and I'm happy to report that the food was consistently excellent and the staff was superb. If you get a chance, you have to try the grilled vegetable starter and the home-made cheese cake! Wow!!!

We have visited Villa Iokasti for numerous years now and each time we go we do not want to leave.
Firstly Koutouloufari is a beautiful Cretan village where you can experience a slow, relaxed pace, with some good tavernas and restaurants, and Iokasti, of all the hotels and apartments in the vicinity is by far and away the best place.
Katy, Dimitri, Eleni and Tanja made us feel so welcome....like part of an extended family.
Te lazy days by the pool are so tranquil and relaxing just listening to the sounds of the crickets and the tranquil music coming from the verande...or having a nice cold Mythos or some great food from the kitchen.....you must try the Osso Buco if its one the menu, and Dimitris green beanc and stuffed tomatoes are heaven.
This place is a brilliant base for families and couples who are looking for a stress, hassle free holiday in the perfect setting.
Everytime we have been the other guests have always been very friendly and I know they get a lot of repeat business from other families similar to our own.
Over the years we have met some really nice people (not necessarily British) who have helped make Iokasti into a perfect destination.
Cant wait for next year!!

When we first arrived they made us feel so welcome. It's a small place with a big heart. Kathy, Dimitri and Tanja are some of the people that works there, and they make it hard for you to feel homesick. I really love this hotel and I would really recommend this lovely place to everyone; families with young kids or teenagers, first time travellers or anyone who wants a safe, reliable and familiar hotel. / Johanna, Thomas, Agneta, Jesper and Felix.

Our stay at Iokasti Village was just like coming home. Katie, Tanja and Dimitri did everything to make our days pleasant.
I had the pleasure to visit several times the kitchen where I could see how typical greek dishes are prepared. All meals are made from biological vegetables and meat.
My daughter had a good time at the swimming pool with her new made friends.
I really like to return one day
