The pleasure at coming back to Golden Villas was immense. Just driving up to it was so pleasing. And it never disappointed. All the positive points in my previous Dec 6th,2012 review are still true and if anything---its better. I stayed a total of about 11 days and enjoyed every one of them. My villa was close to the small... More

The location is superb- away from the crowds, overseeing the bay of Chersonisos. Staff is very friendly and always helpful, supporting you to make the best of your day. Maria is the super star! The breakfast has variety and always some Cretan specialties. The semi-private pool (we actually shared with one with the neighbours) is so clean and large enough... More

I booked a last minute holiday to Crete and the Golden Villas. What a very pleasant surprise I had. My apartment was very spacious, spotless and very comfortable with 2 balconies overlooking Hersonissos and the sea. I must point out that you must take time and make the effort to get to know the staff. Yannis and his team Nico,... More

If beautiful sea views in a quiet setting with your own private balcony, terrace and swimming pool are important features for you then I highly recommend Golden Villas. Friendly staff. Great value for the level of space and facilities. You could easily spend your whole time relaxing watching the sea, sunbathing or taking a dip in your pool. Will come... More

Stayed at the Golden Villas in a villa with a private pool. Accommodation was dated but we didn't have a problem with this. To have a villa with a private pool for the price we paid I thought was amazing value for money. Our villa was at the very top of the complex so walking back up to it was... More

“Not a very big difference between villas with shared and private pool. With private pool, you still see your neighbours pool, as there is no wall or fence.”
