The villa was very conveniently situated about 10 minutes walk from the beaches in Chernosossis and 15 minutes from Koutouloufari where there's a huge choice of restaurants. The villa itself was very modern with good facilities for 6 people. Given the time of year, we paid for pool heating which meant that we were able to enjoy the pool during the entire holiday even when the weather cooled down. The last week in October was very much the end of the holiday season in Crete so there were less facilities open than in the summer but the sea was warm enough to swim in. I think we would find Crete too crowded in the summer but in October it was an excellent chance to see the sites and enjoy the beaches in relative calm. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending the villa as a place to stay and would also recommend Crete in October for families who like mixing beach fun with sightseeing.

The staff were all really helpful and did everything possible to ensure my family had a great holiday. The rooms were cleaned every day with new towels and bottles of drinking water provided. The free buffet breakfast had everything you need from continental to full English and was served in a lovely location by the pool. There were always empty sunbeds around the well maintained pool area and the snack-bar that provided everything from toasties to pasta and meat dishes. My only issue with the area was the number of quad-bikes hired out to young lads who spoiled the walk out on an evening and made crossing the road dangerous. However I would defiantly return to this hotel and would recommend it for couples and families of all ages.
