“Great place!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We have just returned from a week here and it is a lovely resort. It is out of the way but that suited us perfectly. Taxis were 10 Euros to anywhere nearby and there is their own bus service which is free and runs all day but not after 1930. The staff were all very friendly and helpful particularly the bar staff. We didnt take any of the catering options but did eat in both the buffet restaurant and the A La Carte restaurant. The buffet was fine, there is something for everyone but the a la carte restaurant was lovely and very reasonably priced. We are trial members with Diamond Resorts and this was our first experience of them. Lisa, the rep was lovely and although we lost most of a day with them trying to upgrade us to full membership, she was great company! The fact we were members meant we got 15% discount on all food and drinks which made quite a difference across the week. Our room (1 bed) was lovely with an ocean view suite - thanks to some other contributors who suggested asking for an ocean view room and an extra mattress pad - both of which we got! The site is clean and well kept and the 'animation' (activities) around the pool weren't as intrusive as I expected - in fact they were fine and its nice for those who want to take part, if you dont, they dont push it. I would definitely recommend this place as a relaxing and recharging break!

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view and an extra mattress pad.

The resort is excellent. We arrived there threw our RCI share time, got a nice unit with a wonderful panoramic balcony. We had there a package deal of HB meals, buffet stile, so it fulfilled all our vacation expectations.

Room Tip: We were there on the middle of June so there is a camp just under the Village complex and it was ver...

Up on the hillside is a gem of a place for a family vacation in Greece. The rooms large enough for our family of 4. The kids slept on the twin beds/couches and we had the bedroom and there was lots of room. We bought a few supplies from the market down the hill and had a few lunches and one dinner in our room on the terrace. The shuttle easy to use. We rented a car in town for 3 days and it was much cheaper than the hotel and very easy to do. We drove to Chania, Eulonda, and other places very easily. The town is busy so having this hillside get away in the middle of the island was wonderful . Dimitris the hotel manager is so nice and checked in each day to learn our travel plans and give us ideas. Highly recommend this timeshare hotel.

The resort is excellent, the facilities and service are very good. Crete was the last place I visited and we were a bit tired; nevertheless, we had a wonderful relaxing time. The restaurants and events are very good. The resort has everything (e.g., market, restaurants, several ppols, etc) at very good price and convenient buses to town. The last day, late at night I forgot my camera at the rental car. All my pictures from my trip to Greece and I didn't have time to ask for it because of my early flight. Anyhow, Andrea from the resort was kind enough to go back to the place and retrieve it. The resort contacted me and they sent the camera back to me. Unbeliebable! I am so happy and thankful.

We have just arrived back from Village Heights having spent probably one of the best weeks holidays we have experienced. It is situated in the foot hills above Hersonissos with easy access to some spectacular small villages with an abundance of friendly tavernas serving great food. The complex is immaculately clean with well tendered gardens and no signs of litter. The units are well equipped with modern and recently installed cooker, fridge, oven micro wave. They are stunningly clean, comfortable and attractive with a first class decorative finish. The pools and common areas are magnificently cared for. The food in the restaurants was excellent and the staff from the cleaners to the manager were fantastic. We came back rested and utterly delighted with our stay. We cannot recommend it too highly.

Room Tip: Try and get a first floor apartment with a sea view

Really enjoyed our time share exchange here. The views from our unit -- and it looked like from most units -- was breathtaking. While not on water, expansive view of ocean and mountains. We had a car and the resort was a great location for exploring the island -- easy access to historical sites, villages, beach towns. While excursions were available, we did most of our site seeing on our own -- staff extremely helpful in assisting us plan our own itineraries. Resort itself was immaculate -- very clean and well landscaped. On-site restaurants were fine (we had several meals there), but we really enjoyed going off-site for dinners; plenty of good options nearby, particularly in small villages. Units were spacious, extremely clean and very well equipped and maintained. Unlike most time shares, daily maid service -- so thorough that made washed tile floors daily! Highly recommend this resort.

Arrived very late at night, buggy transported all luggage and ourselves to the villa. First introductory holiday with Diamond Resorts and very impressed with the resort and facilities, our holiday advisor Lisa was absolutley brilliant and gave us lots of information on the island and the local area. The bus shuttle service into the town was invaluable and always arrived exactly on time, able to drop us off to explore and eat out at the local tavernas in the 3 nearby villages, which were well worth a trip to for more local experiences. The facilities at the resort were excellent, pool lovely, plenty of sunbeds and the grounds well maintained and with beautiful planting making it very colourful and interesting. The villa was well appointed but lacked a few basic items, very good housekeeeping service, feedback to our advisor was well received and we are sure that this feedback is used in a positive way to improve equipment for the guests. The Cretian people were lovely, welcoming and hospitable where ever we went and went out of their way to make us feel valued guests. The resort was busy but never seemed to be overcrowded, staff were always available to answer any queries and give assistance when required. Although at this time we were unable to proceed with the full membership of Diamond Resorts due to personal circumstances the reps working within this company at the resort were professional , courteous and respectful at all times. This company sells itself with it's first class product and does not need to pursue hard sales to get members interested. Again many thanks to our advisor Lisa, "You are a Diamond"!!
