“Absolutely Fantastic!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2007

We have been to The Radamanthys three years in a row now and we are going again this year. the staff are absolutely fantastic, the accommadation was fantastic. We dont want to go anywhere else!!!!! The first year my partner ended up in hospital with chest pains and i was left on my own with my two children, well Stefanos and Pagona really looked after me and my children. The second year i had an allergic reaction to the sun and my knees got badly burnt well Stefanos called the Dr straight away when he saw i coulndt walk because they were so swollen, even though he gave me the nickname "chicken knees". Then last year we missed our flight but when we finally got there we were made very welcome even though the jokes were on us!!!! so why would we go anywhere else? At least we had eventful holidays and we all still laugh about it now. It makes you wonder what will happen this year!!!!! CANT WAIT!!! hahahahaha. You remember us dont you Stellios, and Pagona. We will see you soon.

Crete is a fabulous place to go on holiday! and the Radamanthys apts are an great base for your holiday. The apartment was clean and tidy ( yes even under the bed!) with a great view of the sea and pool. Pagona and the rest of the staff were brilliant, great fun and certainly added to our holiday in more ways than one! We met so many great people by socialising at the bar and exploring the island in our little hire car (which we highly recommend!). BBQ nights are fab and so much food its obscene.

There is a super market and some nice restraunts near by and the main town of rethmynon is only short bus trip away. Everyone is complaining about the hill but its what makes the great views!

All in all - great holiday for the money. Its self catering apts not a maid serviced hotel but thats the way we like it.

Arrived at 3am. Was very tired and just wanted a drink and something to eat. The apartments looked like they were in the middle of nowhere, and there was nobody about to give us a drink or any food. They did leave some bottled water though!
When we woke in the morning, WOW what a view it was beautiful and we were not that far from the sea or the supermarket, and a handfull of Tavernas. I was worried about the hill everyone talked about and yes it was very steep but its not that long, and you do get used to it. If the hill wasnt there then the views would be nowhere near as good. We had the best apartment on the complex (C4) although they are all very basic. absolutely fantastic views of the sea and the swimming pool area. The apartments are basic and as others have said they are clean on the surface until you look under the beds!!!!!!!!!!! ( Loads of dust and cobwebs). They do bring you clean towels and empty the bins twice a week, but they should also clean the bathroom, as when 4 people are sharing the bathroom it ends up looking a right mess, and the cleaner didn't bother to clean it. The water in the shower would not go down the plug hole either, we always had to wait 10 minutes before the next shower. Pagona is fantastic very level headed but also very funny and entertaining, she makes sure you stay safe if you are drunk. She made the holiday really! If i can give any advice make sure you take tea bags, milk and sugar (if arriving late/early hours) as they do not supply you with anything. Wear comfortable shoes or flip flops for the hill. But really enjoyed it, go for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Liked — The pool and bar area
  • Disliked — The hill and the basic accomodation
  • Tips/Secrets — Take your own Tea etc... If arriving late at night

We stayed at these apts for 2 weeks in July 2006. We were in a room near the bar and entrance and due to the noise of people congregating in this area didn't get a lot of sleep. If you want a relaxing holiday this is not the place to go. We met a lot of nice people though. Pagona is lovely, we had a personal incident and Pagona went out of her way to help us. The apartment itself was Ok, it was clean where you could see(not under the beds or sofa beds - at least 1 inch of dust here). The hill wasn't a problem because we had a car! We weren't far from the nice beach which was good. Personally we wouldn't stay at this place again.

We arrived at Radamanthys at 12 o'clock at night and the first person we met was Pagona. We were told to dump our bags and come back to bar for welcome drink....we ended up there for 2 weeks!!! Well thats how it seemed! Honestly, if you want a fun holiday you wont regret this place. Pagona is the life and soul of the place and she makes everyone feel welcome. She really is the best and she made our holiday the best ever. There was myself, my husband and my 2 children who are 13 and 15 and they had the time of their lives. They met loads of other teenages and they were all safe in the complex. Just a word of warning....Pagona likes to work nights (because she likes to drink and she likes everyone to drink with her) but occasionally she has to work daytime. If that happens beware when your lying at the pool because if she gets bored she is likely to throw some ice-cubes (or anything else she gets her hands on) at you to get your attention so you go drink with her at the bar. She couldn't get us to move but she managed to persuade my son!!! The bbq nights are great fun. Everyone joins in and you might even be persuaded to try some belly dancing or dancing with fire (mind the sockets Pagona!!!). However I have to say you certainly wont dance when you climb the hill to the apartments. A wee lie down is in order....trust me!! Some said it got easier but not for me!!! There are a couple of resturants and supermarkets at the bottom of THAT hill or you could get taxi into Rethmanon but to be honest we were happy to stay at apartments most of the time. The beach is only a short walk too and its quite nice but watch the under current. If the red flag is out DONT go in. My son did and ended up getting rescued by life guard and being taken to hospital. Not the best day of our holidays but thankfully he was ok. Just be careful and watch the flag. We will certainly be going back to Radamanthys. We all loved this holiday. It was full of fun, we met great people and Pagona will make sure you have time of your lives....You wil never regret meeting this woman. Oh and if she asks you to stay up and watch the sunrise....say no or she will want you to watch it rise every morning!!! (only joking Pagona, it was, or should I say THEY were, some of the best nights of holiday) da ran da ran..................


  • Liked — Pagona (she serves a mean drink!!!)
  • Disliked — The hill to get up to it!!!
  • Tips/Secrets — Just be prepared to chill out and enjoy your holiday...

We have just returned from a week at the Radamanthy Apartments. We were A little unsure of what to expect as we had not been on holiday abroard for 15 years and only costing a thousand pounds in a main school holiday we thought we might be letting ourselves in for it. We arrived early morning in the dark and went straight to bed but what a surprise we had when we surfaced at about 9 o'clock. The apartment itself was clean and well equipped. There was also bottles of cold water from A mistry benefactor. Venturing out on to the balcony we were blown away by the view of the coast and the snow capped mountains. The appartments have a lovely family atmosphere with 18 rooms, its own pool and well stocked and generous bar. All the staff do their upmost to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, especially a lovely young lady by the name of Pegona who really does bring a new meaning to the word nightlife. There are several tavernas and local stores within easy walking distance although the walk back UP the hill is not for the faint hearted. There is also an almost deserted beach about 6 to 700 metres away or in the other direction some lovely walks up into the hills. Being half way along the island you are perfectly situated to explore all the wonders Crete has to offer [which are far to many to mention in this review]. Sufice to say that to end this I will just say WE CANT WAIT TO GO BACK.
