The moment we stepped out of our cab and entered the wonderfulness that is Paradise Island, we were in heaven. Paradise, heaven and all things divine. Eleni and the staff were incredible - warm, friendly and genuine, they were extraordinarily helpful and went the extra mile on all fronts. This is a family-run business and it makes all the difference. The food at every meal was fresh and delicious, the cocktails were yummy, the villas, pools and gardens were immaculate and we were surrounded by genuinely lovely staff - it was perfection. We can't wait to return.

The rooms might be slightly dated, but this really pales into insignificance when one looks at everything one receives and experiences the service and smiles of the hospitality team. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is good and the hotel seems to make a point not to nickel and dime the customers. For example, bottles of water, beers, wine and cocktails are all very reasonably priced and there is a reasonable (and perfectly acceptable) fee for room service. The amount of space one gets in the villas is very generous. The gardens are very well cared for and when one sees how dry the surrounding countryside is you realise how much work must go on behind the scenes to keep the grass in your private garden perfectly green and soft. The place is very child friendly. The team can even install a fence for around your villa’s private pool (EUR70 for the duration of your stay - bargain). The hotel amenities are the very lovely Korres shampoos, conditioner and shower gel. The beach is a bit of a walk away, but to be frank, it’s no great loss and the views more than make up for it (you can see the sea from the hotel). The hotel is under the flight path (so it is not as quiet as one would hope given the location), but we didn’t find it much of an issue. All in all good value for money, great service and really fantastic if you have small children. Highly recommend.

We cannot recommend Paradise island enough, the staff are truly magnificent and really go there extra mile to make you feel so welcome. The service at the resort is impeccable, no task was too much and they really can’t do enough for you. We were staying at the villas with a 5 month old baby and I have to say this was the perfect place for babies. Everything you need for young children was provided, from pool toys and floats to baby monitors and sterilising machines, they have everything to make your stay as easy as possible. The resort is so quiet even at capacity and always felt like we had the place to ourselves. The food at the restaurant was delicious and the staff again were amazing. The location of the villas is set up a hill about 10 minute walk to the beach. The local villages are a short taxi ride away and have lovely restaurants, not to be missed. If you are looking for a relaxing, chilled holiday with outstanding service this is the place for you. Paradise island was a home away from home and we look forward to seeing our Greek family again one day soon.

Paradise Island Villas was exactly as the name suggests... Paradise. The staff are the most friendly and helpful we have come across and made us so welcome throughout our stay. This was the ideal place to spend our honeymoon and we would definitely come back here again if and when we come back to Crete.

Paradise Island Villas is a fantastic setting for a holiday for families with small children. The hotel and villas are lovely, the staff amazing and they have really thought about how to take the stresses and strains out of travelling with tots. They will provide stair gates, cots, pool fences, toys, pool inflatables. They even lent my daughter a baby doll and buggy, which she loved. Even when it’s fully occupied, it feels spacious and uncompromised as each villa has a private pool and there are two decent sized hotel pools, which are never busy. The team really take time to get to know the kids, making them relax and feel part of the fun. Big mention to Mike, Babis and Zak by the pool who went above and beyond every single day.

We have just returned from an amazing stay at Paradise Island Villas for our honeymoon. Wow! We arrived and were greeted as though we were old friends, with a cold towel and cool drink which was perfect in the hot sun. Eleni told us that we had been upgraded to one of the two bed Paradise villas and when Pol showed us to our villa (Apollo) there were special extra touches such as rose petals leading up the winding staircase and on the bed, candles, chocolates and champagne which was so thoughtful and a lovely start to our honeymoon. It made everything even more special! The villas are luxurious, chic, tastefully decorated and spacious. Very well equipped too - Eleni and Pol have thought of everything! The hotel itself is located in a peaceful gated complex with stunning views. The location is great - easy walking distance to the beach and there is a bus stop nearby to travel to the centre of Hersonissos (€1 .60 per person each way) or to Malia. Alternatively, Eleni and Pol can arrange car hire for you. The food and drinks are simply delicious and all the staff are second to none - friendly and attentive, nothing is too much trouble. Babis, the waiter, even taught us some Greek. Eleni has great local knowledge and can give excellent recommendations for places to go and things to see. Overall, 5 star service! I would 100% recommend Paradise Island Villas to anyone visiting Crete and thinking of staying. I would also highly recommend the Greek BBQ night! Outstanding food and we were so full after! Thank you Eleni, Pol and the team for making our honeymoon so special and perfect. It really was like being in Paradise. We hope to see you again in the future.

We’ve just returned from a week at Paradise villas where we stayed with our family of 13 over three villas. The villas are very well equipped and luxurious and it seems they have thought of everything that anyone could need. We had some young children in the party and they were provided with pool fences etc. The staff are so friendly and really do work hard to make your experience very special. They go above and beyond and make you feel so welcome. The food is amazing, the setting is beautiful and I wouldn’t hesitate to return. One of the best places I have visited. Thank you so much for an amazing week!

Incredible 2 weeks away at P.I. Villas. Eleni & Pol looked after us to the highest of standards, nothing was too much trouble. From finding us amazing guides to take us around the Palace of Knossos, to booking sail boat trips, tennis lessons, water slide parks, delicious restaurants, beach days and tending to a poorly ear with a Dr's appointment. The villa complex is in a quiet space away from the hustle and bustle, with a perfect private swimming pool for our two children 6 & 8 years as well as being able to enjoy not cooking for two weeks with their wonderful restaurant up in the main area. In this Covid era we are living, they upheld their protocols to the highest, allowing all of my family to relax deeply after these last 18mths. We would return for sure, Crete and Paradise Island Villas is a wonderful combination.

We have just spent a week at Paradise Island Villas which we booked based on the great reviews we read on the web and to celebrate multiple Birthdays across our family of 8 adults and 5 children aged 7 years, down to 2. The resort is lovely!, We stayed in 3 of the villas, the 3 bed and 2 of the 2 beds and each was immaculate really well equipped and luxurious, with their own gardens and mini pools, it gave each family the chance to spend time together in the communal pools but then to chill out in their own space, when needed. The management team, Eleni and Paul, to the restaurant team Michael and Babis couldn't have been more attentive and helpful and they each made us all feel very welcome and relaxed, The food is great and the service and setting were exemplary. We all loved our stay and am sure we'll be back, either together or as individual families.. Our thanks to them all at Paradise for making it a lovely holiday!
