“Friendly, welcoming and fabulous”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Ok it's been a long time coming we know. We spent two weeks at the adonis in September 2013-what a fabulous place. We were made to feel very welcome and by the time we came home we felt like part of a really big family. Met some fabulous people - you all know who you are - and had a great time! Ben we will no doubt see you again later in the year - Chris can keep you company at the bar once again!!! A great place to stay - no wonder most of the folks we met were 'repeaters'.

Just back from a wonderful break in Crete, been before to a posh resort which was fine but compared to the Adonis very boring, we met some lovely people, ate some wonderful food, my husband actually drank red wine...something he has never done in hs life....the staf were friendly thoughtful and always helpful...even though we were the last people in the apartments before it closed for the season, nothing was too much trouble, many thanks to Nikos for the pastries....time to start the diet again...and thanks to Ben and his wife and their lovely little girl...we hope to be back in the future........

Room Tip: didnt visit the other rooms, ours was looking out over the pool and towads the sea and was lovely

Stayed last week in September/ first week October, had a fabulous time, accommodation had everything required for self catering. The owner and barman were fantastic people couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable. Lashings of hot water, clean towels, clean sheets changed regularly.
If you want true Greece stay here. As for comments left by Shaun and Sarah go with the elastic band brigade: all inclusive, you may be satisfied then and pay the price. If you cant get along with people on holiday I suggest you try Spinalonga!! Once again thanks to Nikos and family for being welcoming and fantastic hosts and to Ben for being the Carlsberg barman of the month and year and year and year!!! All the best for the future, Colin and Joan, Yorkshire

Are you sure you didn't stay last year when we were there Shaun and Sarah. Drinking, smoking inactive blobs. LOL. Well, if that's how you describe good, honest, hard working people enjoying a well deserved break, then the Adonis definitely wasn't for you. Sadly couldn't make it this year, but can't wait to go next year. :) X

Well after returning from the Adonis studios after my second holiday here in the last two years wot can I say the apartment was clean it is basic but you only need it to shower and sleep in. The pool is a good size there is a pool bar and ben the barman makes good greek salads plus on a Thursday the BBQ is not to be missed . The village of koutouloufari is a nice place to go for a meal or just to have a walk a round. Nikos Ben and Aurela all helped the holiday go well plus all the new friends I made they along with the friends I made last year made it a great holiday. Thanks again Nikos and Ben I will back.

Room Tip: Rooms with a pool or sea view

Have in the past reviewed the Adonis Studios so really nothing more to add to the past reviews and the 99% of them that have followed but in answer to a review by Shaun & Sarah who had complaints about shower curtain and plugs not working and Believe it or not Single Beds well yes these things are possibly correct It is the Greek Isles, and shower curtains are in most studios a luxury why would you need them anyway, single beds in the heat of Crete in summer time WHY would you want them and as an after thought about things that could be fixed did they ever ask the totally efficient Ben to see to these things ??????? As for the remarks about fellow guests well myself and wife were there, along with old friends, and some new friends made on this trip and can only object strongly about these remarks,To call fellow guests who I may say they never once tried to engage with,in such terms makes me think that such people should book into a private villa where they can enveloped in their own company. We have been visiting these studios for the past 5 years and the reason we return is for the camaraderie with all guests ( mostly) old or new We are returning next year twice actually and be sure to meet up with old friends, meet new friends to wallow around the pool and hang around the bar and generally enjoy ourselves as far as I know this is what 2 weeks in the sun is for when you visit this great little spot.

Room Tip: For us rooms overlooking the pool have the best views but to be fair apart from the views they are w...

Me and my other half have just returned from our holiday at Adonis studios and we had to write a review! Whilst we were searching the best places to visit in October my parents suggested the Adonis where they had stayed just a couple of months before. I am so glad we chose to give the canaries a miss and headed to Koutouloufari because we had the most amazing time and the weather was decent too! The apartments are traditional Greek self catering apartments and are lovely and homely. Everything is kept very clean including the pool and bar area and you see the maid frequently during your stay who is very nice. But it was the lovely Ben and Nikos and their families who made our stay so special. Ben manages the apartments and is always on hand to help, when we first arrived the hot water wasn't working but this was sorted out straight away. Ben is always about at the bar for a chat and to pour your favourite drink. We really cant fault Ben at all and him and his family are such lovely people. Nikos the owner made such a fuss of us and visited us many times throughout our stay, Nikos is a wonderful person and he went out of his way to spoil us and make sure our stay was brilliant. Nikos also has a lovely family and we had a great time getting to know them all, we very much enjoyed chatting with Nikos`s dad who is a prime example of just how lovely the Greeks are! The village of Koutouloufari is gorgeous and has so many different restaurants and bars to choose from including some lovely shops. After the village ends it leads in to two others which are also good places to visit and its around a 30 minute walk to the third village from Koutouloufari. We visited hersonissos also which is around a ten minute walk at the bottom of the hill, this is MUCH more lively and I can imagine is very busy in the summer. So if you like peace and quiet you're much more suited staying in Koutouloufari and the nearby villages or even getting a cab to sissi which is around 30 euros. For a really good meal with a great atmosphere then head to the alchemist in the village,this was one of our favourite nights out! I think my other half's favourite night must have been the BBQ night though that Ben hosts at the Adonis , and we were all stuffed by the end of the night. I'm a vegetarian and I didn't expect much more than a Greek salad but they knew in advance and got a restaurant up the road to prepare me a massive tray of stuffed vine leaves which were amazing! Nikos also comes round at the end with some treats from the best bakery in Greece. We are going to book next month to visit again as soon as the season begins and we are so sad to be home. Please ignore the bad reviews, we met so many lovely people and we really enjoyed the company of the other guests. Thank you so much for making our holiday the best! Lots of love Charlotte and Chris x
