Astra Village Apartments
Ranked #8 of 13 Hotels in Koutouloufari
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We stayed at the Astra Village for 10 days in September. It was the most enjoyable holiday my partner and I have had in Crete/Greece. The apartment was clean, spacious and whilst overlooking the Main Street it was slightly set back which made for great people watching! (apt 95). The staff were friendly at the Astra as were the staff in the village of Koutouloufari at all the bars and restaurants. The Alchemist bar is worth a visit (great cocktails) and the bars on that street were all good. Food was good at Kostas Tavern in Piskopiano and Patrickas. The holiday was made even better by the great people we met and friends we made whilst we there, I would definitely return for another holiday.

We stayed here in 2011 and the rooms and area around hotel are kept really really clean. We had a downstairs room next to pool which we felt was a little insecure so requested another and were moved very quickly and owner was very friendly. Rooms are well equipped for Greece and pleasant. Only downside is pool is very small - not a swimming pool

First time in Crete and first time in these apartments. The family that run the apartments and cafe bar are lovely and can't do enough for you, they and their staff make your stay a very pleasant one. Lovely pool areas, games for the kids. Car park is fun but convenient. Lovely places to eat in close proximity. Watch this space we're coming back. Truly lovely stay, thankyou.

I visited the Astra Village Apartments with my wife, for 10 days from August 13th 2013. The location was excellent and right in the heart of the traditional village of Koutouloufari. The accommodation was basic but very clean and the maid service was first class. The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis mainly during the afternoon period. The accommodation has 45 apartments so does not get too over crowded by the two pool areas. there are also plenty of sunbeds available. The management team were very friendly and approachable and young Cristian could not be more helpful, supportive and knowlegeable. The food available in the dining area was first class and there are also plenty of other restaurants available in the village to cater for all tastes. The Astra Village was value for money and represents great value.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view as the apartments on the left side have poor balcony views.

I visited the Astra Village Apartments with my wife, 15 year old son and in-laws for two weeks from August 9th 2013.
Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised the location was excellent right in the heart of the traditional village of Koutouloufari. The accommodation was basic in true Greek stye but freshly decorated and very clean, maid service was first class rooms cleaned daily.
The accommodation complex was very quite with none of the hustle and bustle of larger resort complexes, the management team were excellent and very approachable attending to our every need, Kostas and his team in the bar/bistro were knowledgeable and pleasant and would assist when required.
I would certainly return to the Astra Village value for money was beyond my expectation for the price I paid.
I have traveled widely in Greece and in Crete in particular and paid far more for considerably less.
Astra Apartments represent great value for money.

Room Tip: The rooms from 91 are on the cooler side of the complex only getting the sun in the evening and bene...

Although w would like to reiterate all the positive comments re: friendly and helpful staff and the superb standard of apartment we would just like to make some comments for beach lovers.

Although The Astra Village is situated in a lovely position a number of traditional Greek villages for beach lovers without a car is not so ideal. The nearest beach well over 1km away. The Star Beach though ideal for young families and 18 to 30 age group does not represent most peoples idea of a idylic Greek beach. We had to hire a car which adds to the cost of an holiday if on a budget.
