Asterias Village Resort
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Koutouloufari
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This was our first visit to Koutouloufari and The Asterias Village. The whole place was very nice, the staff were extremely helpful and it was a great holiday overall.
It is quite hilly and some of the apartment locations may be a problem for some people, but the whole place was spotlessly clean and the pool area had plenty sun beds and plenty of room for everybody.
We had a late departure and we were able to stay in our room until 1830, which was great.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here, and Costas and Giannis in reception, and the manager Antonis, deserve a special mention.
Also Daniel,in the pool bar in the evenings, was great company and many an hour passed as he kept the drinks coming. Cheers

We arrived on a Tuesday for 1 week, and by the Friday we used the internet in reception to book another visit to Asterias Village, in September, for 11 nights. It is a wonderful complex in a wonderful location, between two very pretty villages. The whole complex is outstanding, with a beautiful pool and two restaurants. The staff are excellent, very friendly, helpful and efficient. We had a one bedroomed apartment near the top of the complex, which was extremely large, with a huge balcony, and a view to die for, overlooking Hersonissis and the sea. The sunrise was beautiful.(There are other types of rooms available) The ladies who cleaned the rooms were lovely, and kept everything spotless. The bathroom was large compared to others we have had in Greek islands. There was always plentiful hot water, and towels changed as often as you wanted. There are loads of restaurants and bars,( thankfully no English or Irish) in the villages, where the food is excellent. The food is also very good in Asterias, particularly the Oliva restaurant which is at the top of the complex on the main street. There is a shuttle bus three times a day to the town, which is free. Taxis are also reasonable. I would highly recommend Asterias Village for a holiday, and can't wait for September.

Room Tip: If you are of the elderly brigade like us, I would recommend a room near the road if possible.

The location here is very good, just between the two villags of Koutouloufari and Piskopiano (which merge into one another). Lots of good tavernas in both villages which we used every night as we were staying on a Self Catering basis. We had breakfast on some days at the hotel which was nice with different things offered on differnt days. The restaurant at the hotel was very good.

The town of Hersonissos was a fairly easy walk down the hill - but we took a taxi back up as it was so steep (6 euros). From the town you can catch buses to Iraklion or the other way to Malia and Agios Nikolaos.

We were on the top floor of the hotel so the view was spectacular. It was very convenient for the village. However as it was up another flight of steps from the steps everyone mentioned it may not be very convenient if you have a small child in a buggy and want to spend most days by the pool (down at the bottom). There is an interesting rock formation behind the hotel which makes a great backdrop

The room (a studio) was spacious, but the bathroom was a bit cramped. The staff were friendly and helpful.

It was a shame that the Greek night wasn't on because it was early in the season, and neither was the jacuzzi.

Room Tip: A room at the top is handy if you want to spend a lot of time out and about the villages

My girlfriend and I fell inlove with this area right away! Super friendly and over the top helpful staff if you need anything or have questions about what to do or see they will go out of there way to tell you everything and even arrange it for you no problem. Upgrade to the morning breakfast its absolutely worth it! The rooms are gorgeous and so are the views! I will definitely be going back here!

Arrived here on the Saturday night and was welcomed by a lovely man in the reception who made us very welcome. Was very friendly and literally showed us to our room which was right above the reception and over looking the pool. What a view we had of the pool the village hersoniss and the sea.
Our room was just perfect for our stay. What was missing was a microwave but other than that it was brilliant.
The stairs provided us with our daily excerise but would not be for one with knee problems or height fears.
In the bar area Manelaos and Daniel were brilliant. Daniel was
exceptionally good alwaya with a smile on his face very friendly and knowledgeable. Even though he started at 16:00 and worked until 02:00 we had an enjoyable time with him sometimes keeping him going until 03:00.
The reception staff were excellenf as well and got to meet the owner and the manager antonis. Brilliant people and always willing to help.
Overall the place was kept well clean and maintained. A small church is present on site which complemented the village.
Thank you to all the staff from the owner to the manager bar staff and cleaners for an excellent place and making our stay wonderful

Yes it does have steep steps but that soon becomes part and parcel and well worth the hike. What a lovely place staff very friendly and will do anything to help. great shuttle bus to town every day three times a day. Food in restaurant was lovely and very welcoming when you have traveled all day. we be pricing up to return this year cant wait....
Highly recommend trying the restaurant and wandering into the neighboring villages...

Room Tip: Our maisonette was great nice and cool and great balcony to watch the world go by...

I visited with family a few weeks ago and stayed on a self catering basis. The resort is excellent with great facilities, faultless staff, lovely views, clean and safe environment. The only downside is the stairs which were a problem for us as we had a buggy to take up and down from room to pool, room to restaurants etc. Having said this I would still highly recommend and definitely visit again. It's just a shame they don't have any 2 bedroom apartments.
