When finding this hotel I first thought it was a skam as there was old pictures on google about the previous hotel and also on google maps there was picture of the old hotel but it has been now totally renewed!

I want to thank the great staff at Paralos Venus! They made the vacation feel like vacation. Absolutely lovely, friendly and very personal staff, my special thanks to the restaurant manager, she was the best. The staff made us feel so welcomed since day one. We had an upgrade toa room with our own pool, we got a welcome drinks and also a free of charge ride from the airport to the hotel, which turned out to be such an relief as we were super tired of the flights! Thanks to George for arranging that!

Staff really had an effort as one day when I had a migrine and felt dizzy in the restraunt the most helpful waitress wanted to escort me to my room and she brought all the food we oredered to our room and checked on me that I feel better. And she did that the next morning too. What a loevly people the greek people!

About the room. It was on spot. Totally brand new, full of nice details. There could have been few more softer pillows and some plants in the room and the room terrace to make it more welcome and not so empty. Vleaners did amaizing job every day with the cleaning. No complains about that.

Restaurant and breakfast had the most amaizing food and so good options, especially on breakfast! The lunch menu was good but there wasnt a lot of choises. And it was a bit more difficult as there wasnt a lot of vegetarian options. But they had vegan options at breakfast and veganmilks which I think is progress as I havent seen a lot of it in Greece. Restaurant was nice even though the views at the moment are still to the parking lot the restraunt vould be on the top floor to avoid visitors seiing the prking lot and the empty fields.

You can see that the hotel has just been opened and it has been upgraded to a luxury hotel as some thing are still unorganized and for example breakfast waiting times were a bit long but again the STAFF made us feel special.

Pool area was very nice and very aestehetic! So beautiful and well designed. No bad comments about that! Gym is good but it is pretty hot to workout there during the day as it is an outdoor gym and unless it ks windy, it can be pretty hot.

As a totally relaxation holiday this was a great choise and we totally felt relaxed and speacial guests. It was wprth the money. Analipsi area and the village is not that special, quite full with big resorts and not really that intresting and beautiful. But it was essy to rent a car and go to the east coast and we spent most of the time at the hotel relaxing by the pool so we did not expect anything special from the area. There was pharmacy and markets and nice restraunts near by.

THANK YOU!

The location for us was perfect: 2 minutes away from the beach and within 1 minute you can find a supermarket, car-rental and a sports café (try to pass Yiannis Club Café without being ‘spotted’ by Yiannis ).

Analipsi is much more quiet than Hersonissos but if you want the night life a taxi will take you there within 10 minutes / 10 euro. For food, bars, watersports and shops and a small scenic center Analipsi offered more than enough for us to stay in ‘our little 1 KM comfort zone’

But what made our Venus Mare vacation memory one that lasts into our minds till us 5 (49, 51, 20, 18, 15) are grey and old? The staff made us feel special, treated us like guests and not as ‘milk cows’. Didn’t matter if you were a big spender or kept your bucks in your pocket. I have never seen a nicer staff in all the travelling I did around the globe than e.g. Larry and Rena. They bend over backwards to make your staff at Venus Mare unforgettable and in a way Larry can do that too when he does the sirtaki.

The rooms are clean, basic but have good air conditioning, and the beds were very nice, which I think is one of the most important aspects considering you have to sleep there for a fortnight. On Crete you only stay in your appartment to sleep, shower or dress up to go out so I for one rather spend my bucks on something else than a pimped room!

Most rooms have Pool / sea view from the balcony where there’s always a nice breeze to cool your sun burned skin while enjoying your coffee, beer or wine to top of your 100% ‘vacation mode’.
You can get a Wi-Fi adapter in each room for a very reasonable price, can do your wash downstairs in the central building and (if there’s room) on the day of departure extend your room for a small fee so you can still relax at the pool before being picked-up by the airport transfer bus.

If it wasn’t for my wife’s philosophy that life is too short to return to the same place every vacation and we’re trying to see as much of the world as possible Venus Mare would definitely be a place I would be returning to for many years!

Picturesque,small complex with excellent apartments and pool.Always spotlessly clean.Very attentive,hard working staff.Breakfast was the same daily but suited us fine-what better than eating on the terrace overlooking the pool every morning! Fresh towels every other day and bedding changed mid stay.Charge for safety deposit box-11euros per week.Couldn`t operate the air con but wasn`t a problem-we just opened the windows!

Room tip: We had a side view balcony on the first floor-views of the pool from there and bedroom window.Definitely choose first floor for views.
