Villa Ilos Customer Reviews

Jacqueline Clements, 08-Aug-2017

Lovely villa, and having the pool was fantastic. We loved the setting - totally private despite the neighbouring hotel, surrounded by olive trees, butterflies flying about and the constant chirruping of cicadas! The location was great, bakery and mini market around the corner and beach was 10 mins walk away. We didn't hire a car and didn't need to as could catch the bus to nearby Platanias or Chania or walk along the path alongside the bakery down to the many hotel restaurants or bars which lay along the coast. The little land train was also excellent, would recommend. Helen, the rep, was very helpful and gave suggestions for excursions and maps, also on our last day when we had 12 hours between leaving villa and catching flight, explained that we were able to use the facilities of a local hotel (Hotel Marika in Platanias), this was a great way to spend the last day, the hotel was great, water sports nearby on the beach and excellent restaurant. Would definitely book again.
