We last stayed here 3 years ago, I loved it then & it hasn’t changed it’s still as lovely. We were welcomed by the lovely owner Froso & we were so pleased to see her again. We stayed in the double room. The rooms are very clean. The house which was Frosos mums house is so beautiful. The views over the mountains are fabulous. You must stop for Frosos amazing breakfast, it just keeps coming & is delicious. We shall go back again.

A high quality, clean and comfortable place to stay near the centre of this interesting hillside town. Zaros is famous for its waters and offers excellent hillside hiking. It is also handy to the ruins at Gortys, which should not be missed. The manager is friendly and helpful and the breakfasts will keep you going until dinner (even after trekking through ruins and hills!). Recommended.

We were staying for one night as it was close to Agia Marina Donkey Rescue Sanctuary for my elderly Mother. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by the staff even though our rooms weren't quite ready. When we were shown our rooms we were delighted by what we had. My Mother had the double room which had the net curtain over the bed and the exposed stone walls, it made her trip. The breakfast was a delight - a proper Cretan breakfast which filled the table and we were allowed to take away what we didn't eat for a snack later in the day. Well worth a stay.

Hi, the breakfast here was amazing. Lots of pastries and pies, and they kept on coming for 6 euros. We thought it was finished and needed to drive on and there was still more to come - goodness knows what! The room was good - a double and single bed. But I asked for a spare sheet as I sleep really hot at the moment, and never got it. Zaros is a wonderful town. We had a great walk up part of the gorge behind the lake. Stunning. An excellent organic food family taverna, Vegera, where we had the same as everyone else, eating what we were given. Lovely and very reasonable price.

Gorgeous room with high standard bathroom set in tranquil village of Zaros. Couldn't have expected more and owner was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely with home made pastries and jam. Wonderful experience and an insight to traditional Greek life. Wished we had stayed longer

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the delightful Haraklia rooms, our room was spotless & so lovely with an onsuite modern bathroom . The rooms are situated just slightly outside of the main part of the town but this isn't a problem. The rooms of which there are 6 are situated in a lovely building with family photos & cretan furniture around out the back is a lovely courtyard surrounded by olive, lemon & Orange trees. Do make sure you book the breakfast with Froso as you will be stuffed until lunchtime. Homemade pastries, local eggs & fruit will just keep coming out. Delicious!

Friendly staff, excellantly equipped and clean rooms. The breakfast is amazing, it is also so large you can eat the leftovers for lunch. Zaros itself is fantastic, warm and welcoming. The ultimate Greek mountain location a true home from home.

On our week trip in southern Crete we wanted to stay for couple of days in the mountain village of Zaros. It is a small traditional village where you can experience the real Greek way of life. If you want to save some money and get the hight quality we recommend Hariklia rent rooms. Their location is on the edge of Zaros facing to the massive mountains. We had room number 1 with small terrase and street view. The room was very tidy and clean. Bathroom was new.there was a quite big fridge in the corner of the room too. We really liked the stony wall which enhances the rural look of the room. We spent a lot of time sitting outside drinking retsina and observing the life going on, just like locals do. If you want more privacy you can sit at the back garden, which is full of orange trees and hanging vines. Froso is a lady taking care of the whole place a she does the excellent job. We will not forget her Greek breakfast. The whole table was fulfilled with traditional pastries, sweet and savoury, yogurt and honey, fruits, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. She kept bringing the plates till we were really full. She also gave us tiro pitta on our drive to Chersonissos. That was very kind from her. When you fancy a refreshing glass of Fredo coffee you can stay in Hariklia. You don't need to go to the fancy cafes. It is so delicious, served with localy produced sesame biscuits which you have to try! We will definitely return to this place when we have a drive across Crete again. There would be no point staying in big hotels which pretend to be traditional cretan.
