“Chilled out haven = Papadakis Villas”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

We have just returned from a wonderful 10 days at Papadakis Villas.......and we want to get on the next flight back!
What a gem of a place run by the friendliest people. Kostas, Maria & Stavros really make this place something special. From chilled out days by the pool, to meeting new friends at the weekly bbq, to fun nights in the fat frog bar with plenty of Raki! If you are on holiday to relax and live the Greek dream......you have to come here.......Simple!
We will be back.....Kath & Rob xx

Reviewed 14 May 2014

Room very basic. Had a kitchen area, dinning table and fridge. No curtains up at windows just voiles so had to put a blanket over curtain pole as it was far too light on a morning. Shower was terrible, it was tiny, leaked all over and most of the time the water was freezing since the solar panel was not switched on. Bathroom sink was blocked and water would not drain. Staff were no where to be seen for assistance and one member was unhelpful when asking about transfer to airport details, quite abrupt and disinterested. Worst hotel I have stayed in but Crete was great.

Just booked my third trip to Papadakis Villas and can't wait to get back there again to holiday with old friends and meet new ones. We keep coming back because this place is fantastic from the moment you walk in you are treated as friends not guests. Kostas and Maria are just the best hosts and know how to look after people. Everyone seems to return which says everything.

Stay for 1 week in September with my boyfriend, the welcome was great, Billy checked us in and gave us a free drink, before going to the room.
The room was a good size, adequate for 2 people. We had to have the aircon as we arrived in a heatwave.
Met some really nice people, on the free bbq night who we kept in touch with.
Sunbeds are plenty and pool was warm, drinks until the early hours and reasonably priced, had breakfast there everyday too.
Really good situation, down the hill to hersonisos, to good bus routes to ag nik, gouges, analipsi and anisaras, which were all places we went to visit very inexpensively.
Piskopiano and Koutolafari are up the hill where we ate most nights, didn't' have a bad meal all week.
Would not hesitate to return, although we were out of our room when it was time to leave, they have shower facilities to use. it was a superb week, thank you kostas, Maria and Billy

We first visited papadakis apartments in may 2013, I had previously not been to Crete or Greece, so didn't know what to expect.
The apartment was very clean, very basic, but adequate for our needs, I had been through the mill emotionally and just needed somewhere to unwind, this place ticked all the boxes. Kostas and maria were fantastic hosts, as was billy the barman, the free barbeque was an added bonus and as it fell on my 60th birthday they made me a 'cake' (2 strawberries and a peach with a candle in)
It was these little things that made my time there more enjoyable. As for the pool I can't comment as I never use them, I can't swim and am frightened of water on my face! The cleaner came in most days, but on the days she didn't if our bins needed emptying we emptied it, simples!
SEE YOU ALL AGAIN, 20TH MAY!!!

Room Tip: I had a ground floor room and it was lovely to have the bit of shade from the midday sun

Papadakis Villas is a great place to stay. The location is ideal! With quick access to the busy harbour and also to the calm villages of Koutouloufari and Piskopiano where you can find many traditional restaurants and bars.
Our room was very clean with comfortable beds and equipped with en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, internet connection, t.v. and fully equipped kitchenette.
The owners were very friendly and accommodating and they recommended the best places to visit in Crete!
Breakfast was delicious with a nice variety of tasty food and coffee. The pool and pool area were very nice and clean. The “Fat Frog” is a beautiful cafe-bar next to the pool offering cool beer, tasty food and fantastic cocktails.
They also organize special nights. We really enjoyed the barbeque nights with Cretan music and dance.
We definitely recommend Papadakis Villas, spacious clean rooms, great location, friendly service and value for money!

"We stayed at Papadakis Villas and we are very happy for our choice. The rooms were so clean and spacious, the stuff was quite friendly. The location was very comfortable because everything we needed was very close and ofcourse the price was good. In general,Papadakis Villas is a very value for money choice if you ever be in Crete! Thanks for the great hospitality

The hotel was built 28 years ago and it's been passed from the parents to the children to continue the traditional family business.Almost every week we cook complimentary food for our guests to join and share our Greek philosophy.All ages are welcome but our statistics say that couples often prefer staying with us ... more   less
