We come here every year because the atmosphere is so special and the welcome is so warm. The hotel is beautiful with simple yet spotless rooms and a tranquil patio area covered by a grapevine. The whole place is full of beautiful rustic artefacts which the owner,Manos, has collected from all over the island. Manos is the perfect host and...

In Ierapetra we probably had the best time of our wonderful holiday in Crete. The town is quite quiet, with a large pedestrian area, good food, history and views. We stayed at Cretan Villas Hotel between Oct 13 and 16 and we are completely satisfied. The apartments are located in a beautiful stone house which looks old style yet recently...

We stayed at the Cretan Villa Hotel for 2 weeks. Our room - the double with the balcony over the hotel entrance - was spacious and confortable. There were sufficient sockets in the room to meet our needs. The bathroom was compact, but perfectly usable. The air conditioning worked well, and additional blankets (for cooler nights) are available on request....

We stayed at Cretan Villa just for one night at the beginning of October. The location is quiet(it has one side next to a pedestrian street), very cosy maybe because of the traditional aspect of the interior. The host is very welcoming and will help you with advices for a larger area than Ierapetra.

Central, very comfortable, close to all attractions, beaches, shops, autostation. Ideal for those who don't like hotel conditions and prefer feel like at home) or for family rest. Very vivid. The main character is welcoming Manos, he will help with anything you need, even the most perverse traveler. Highly recommend.

If you want an easy-going vacation (not too many people, good food, good beaches), Ierapetra is an excellent hub. We stayed at one of the Akrolithos apartments for 6 nights. Manolis, the manager of the apartments, is an excellent professional and a nice fellow. He provides unique advice (the best tips ever) about sightseeing, F-O-O-D, and beaches (esp. the ones...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cretan Villa and we would unreservedly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Ierapetra, the magnificent beaches of South Crete, or Chryssi island. It is ideally located at the centre of the town with easy access to the beach, restaurants, cafes and bars. Despite its central location, it is in a pedestrian zone...
