I don’t often write reviews online, yet I had such an amazing time in Villa Alexander last summer that I decided to share it with you. I stayed in the hotel with three of my friends for a week in June 2014. The room was fantastic, very clean, very spacious and in a good price considering its size. We had a great balcony with an amazing view. I have to say that it was better than what we expected from the pictures. We really enjoyed the swimming pool that was in a decent size, as well as the shared barbeque that we used two evenings. Villa Alexander was located in Akrotiri, which was a great place to be as there are lots of beaches and nice restaurants (tavernas), bars and coffeeshops nearby. The closest beach was 900 metres away from the hotel, which sounded too much when we first arrived but it wasn’t that bad in the end. We could use the car that the owner had arranged for us but we preferred to walk most of the times and that was lovely…not too far at all. The car that we rent helped us to visit the centre of Chania that was 10-15 minutes from Akrotiri. We also had the chance to go on small trips outside Chania and visit Rethymnos for a day. I am more than happy to recommend Villa Alexander to any of you, as we had a great time there.
