What a great holiday. The villa was great, as was the weather and the staff were even better.
Nothing was too much trouble for Pol and Eleni, who were warm & welcoming from the moment we arrived. The children (especially our youngest) were spoilt the whole time.
Unfortunately I had a accident whilst in Crete, and needed to go to hospital. Even this was no trouble for the Paradise Island staff who met us at the hospital, helped with the insurance and arranged for me to see another doctor.
Highly recommended!

The villas are very nice and comfortable. Eleni and Pol are very helpful. Everything on site is perfect for lovers, but food could be improved for breakfast and restaurant. Location is not the best in Crete but Pol has nice seafood restaurant to suggest.

From the moment you arrive at Paradise Villas you receive a warm welcome, thanks to Eleni, Paul and all the team you can guarantee nothing is too much trouble. Our villa was furnished to a high standard and having the flexibility to self-cater or order room service made life easy, especially as we were travelling with two small children. The resort facilities enable you to stay in complete privacy, lounging around your own pool or by making use of the two larger pools on site (they are never busy), there is also a fitness room, tennis courts and a children's playground. You will really need a hire car to venture out and reach all the best beaches but we managed with local cabs.
We dined in the restaurant most nights and enjoyed every evening - we will return knowing we will be well looked after in great surroundings.

Room Tip: Book a hire car to get around.

I have never reviewed on Trip Advisor before but felt I had to because we had such a good time! We were travelling as a large group (2 adults, four 16 year old girls and two 13 year old boys). We also had someone with food allergies - so not and easy group to cater for! The staff could not have been more helpful, getting the balance right between friendly and not over bearing. I thought the food was lovely, the villas were good, with surround sound TV that the children loved and DVDs that could be borrowed too. There were great extra touches like inflatable rings for the pool provided, things like that are really a great bonus. Eleni and Paul gave us some great suggestions for days out and restaurants to eat at which were fantastic.The cleaning staff were also excellent. All in all a great time was had by all! Thank you.

We travel often and are never surprised to find things less than they should be. This was our first trip EVER where our every expectation was not only met they were each far exceeded.

We reviewed many places and kept coming back to PIV. That said, the reviews seemed too good to be true. We booked remaining skeptical. Wow, this experience goes on record for quality and fond memorability. From time of booking to time of departure, everything was easy, 5 star, high value, and stress free. At PIV, they mean full service. They are at your disposal for whatever you need –comfort, advise, great food and drinks, directions, or to be left completely alone.

We ate amazing food, drank excellent wine, and enjoyed a beautiful, clean and spacious villa with that really private garden and pool. Kitchen appliances and dishware were good, clean and appropriate for those of us loving to cook. Housekeeping services were provided at our preferred schedule by a friendly and thorough staff. Wifi reached everywhere.

Eleni, Paul, Stellios, Effy, and everyone else (including the greek bbq master, taxi drivers and car rental dude) was just amazing.

We searched for any critique to provide and had none. Struggling to find something… we can only say there was a wee bit too much chlorine in the pool; although it did not stop us from swimming every day.

Two suggestions: 1) Book this place if you want a great holiday. 2) If you are really nice, they might give you one of their homegrown bananas.

We have just returned from our second trip to PIV and if it's possible, this stay was even better than last year. Paul and Eleni go above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome and relaxed and nothing seems too much trouble. We love exploring Crete and so we hire a car and travel around discovering the island. Coming back to the peace of PIV and entering our spotlessly clean villa for a cold beer and a swim is a perfect way to end the day. We are already planning another visit.

My review is a year late. The only negative thing that I could possibly say about Paradise Island Villas was we could not stay longer. In a perfect world, I would never leave. The people of PIV stole my heart, and I cannot wait to see them again. PIV is a magical place, and the staff are wizards.
