Reviewed 11 June 2014

I booked last minute for a 4 night stay and all I needed was a place to sleep on a night. I like to get out and about so just wanted somewhere close to the beach and with a few bars and restaurants. The 2* rating did concern me at first however after checking the reviews, saying how clean the apartments were I took a risk. Very glad I did! Had a lovely stay at the Villa Ritsa, friendly, clean and most importantly for me as a female travelling alone, I felt very safe there. I have returned home happy, relaxed and planning to make a return trip later in the year.

we stayed as a family of 4(2 teenage kids) and we absolutely loved this place.First people to stay here travelling with jet 2 holidays on 27.5.14.For the 1st few days we were the only people there as its the beginning of the season and we had the pool all to ourselves.The pool is a gem as is the owner George.An amazing man who is so friendly and will do anything for you.If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Stalis then look no further.
The place is really clean and the maid works so hard.Beds changed mid week and towels on a daily basis.
Bar snacks are good and cheap(our kids loved georges chips).
Greeted with such a warm welcome and that feeling continued for the whole week.
Keep it up George and see you in the future.

the rating of 2 stars to this place is nothing less than a crime.
The room was spotless, the owners were welcoming and so willing to help with tips and recomendations for the trip.
free wi-fi, a kiddy pool and a regular one, so close to the boardwalk yet quiet and peacefull.
HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!

p.s - George you're the best! (Las Israelitas)

We read the reviews, all good and liked the price for Villa Ritsa. Our first time in Crete, we arrived with a warm welcoming from Owners George and his Father. We were taken to our rooms, shown all the facilities and even told about public transport use and where the nearest beach etc was. Room basic but absolutely spotless, swimming pool was crystal clear with many loungers. We actually spent a lot of time at the pool, which is rare for us. Nothing is too much trouble, George goes out of his way to help and if you have any questions about the local area or need anything. During the week we rented a car for 2days. Little more expensive than we wanted to pay but managed to go to Heraklion city centre, Ag Nik, Malia and Mahoas for a traditional Cretan night, all lovely. We also hired quad bikes as everyone seems to have quads or scooters, thoroughly enjoyed this and cheep enough at €18 for the day.
The hotel had free wifi, reasonably priced drinks and very cheap snack bar food. The pool and pool area really made it for us and the pics do not do it justice. We will definitely return to the Villa Ritsa and am recommending it to family/friends. Great location as only 3 mins walk to beach. Do not be put off by its closeness to the main road as it is still quiet especially at night and there are an abundance of underpasses for convenience crossing it.

As always, I love this place. Nothing ever a bother for the owners. Pool fantastically clean and sparkling. Plenty of sun loungers and lots of cold beer in the chiller!

Lovely flowers and shrubs dotted around the place.

Apartment spotless as ever and everything immaculate.

Highly recommended.
