Arolithos Traditional Cretan Village is really a very special case. It is a hotel at the form of an old village of Crete. Constructed at the form of an old village it travels us back to the past times. The rooms are very standard but with the necessary services. There is a magnificent swimming pool with a breathtaking view over the city of Heraklion and the valley.

We had a room quite near to the road, but it had the most amazing view over both the city and the surrounding mountains. We sat on the balcony most evenings watching the sunset. The 'village' is on the side of a hill and has many steps but you soon get used to them. It was

This is the only place you can find the traditional with the hotel, the place hosts weddings and most of days has one to "explore" how the Cretan people celebrate the weddings.The owners make their best to satisfy your needs.

How do I get from the airport to the hotel? Is taking a taxi the only option?
Thanks for your response! We just did the route today and discovered that it's definitely possible to take a bus. Take a bus from the airport to Heraklion city centre and go to main bus station by the ferry port. You may need to walk from the city centre to the station... about 10 to 15 minutes, most of it downhill and then East along the waterfront. It's a nice walk. From the bus station, take a bus to the property (towards Tilios). Keep in mind that the LAST bus leaves pretty early in the day, at 2:30 pm. I hope this helps other people considering taking a bus to the property.

"Bottom rooms near to the road are quieter if there is a wedding or party on in the village as the party area is at the top of the resort."
"Room with a sea view from high above!"
"Quieter rooms are at the lower end of the village. Rooms nearer to reception are better for people with walking difficulties."
"Rooms off the "village square" are quieter"
"Don't count on the local bus service located across the street from the hotel."
