Stella and Ylias created a little paradise on the hillside of kato zakros, facing the beautiful secluded bay with it's taverns, the palace and the entrance into the gorge of the dead. Rarely I have found a place so peaceful and energizing at the same time. The only bad thing was that I couldn't stay longer. It's one of these...

This was the nicest place we stayed in Crete. The grounds were beautiful with unique and fun sculptures. The units were tastefully appointed with much attention given to small details. One could hardly do better at home. Stella was helpful and full of good information and spoke English very well. The kitchen was well equipped and had basics like olive...

Kato Zakros is the best resort in a lovely remote corner of Crete. The drive from Heraklion airport takes about four hours unless you drive like a rally driver. This is about as far as you can get from Crete's airports so the tourist numbers are very small and manageable. The four tavernas offer excellent quality Cretan dishes, served with...

I stayed in four different places in Crete with my three kids (16, 16 and 10) and this is the place where we felt the most at ease. The decoration of the apartment is very nice, you have all the equipment you can imagine (even a bag to carry your stuff to the beach) and an amazing room service (house...

Terra Minoika is very nicely build in local stone, so it blends in in the surroundings. It is managed very professionally, it's well equipped and on a great location with very nice views over Kato Zakros and it's bay. If you like hiking this is a great place to go to. If the hike is not enough exercise for you...

This absolutely beautiful hotel is situated on a hill just above Kato Zakros. The hotel's buildings are traditionally built with local stone and the interior reminds the old traditional Cretan village homes with a taste of luxury! The hotel's staff is always there to help and advice you. Just perfect!

though the world has so many places we have not seen yet, we had to come back. Menawhile the fourth time, this place remains an extraordinary experience, getting nicer from time to time. Just the people remain the same. Honest, reliable, care-taking, engaged and heart-warming

We have stayed here many times and Stella provides consistently excellent service and accommodation. The views are unrivalled and the location is perfect. It is peaceful and relaxing - if you want loud music and drinking, please stay away and let the rest of us enjoy this beautiful and unspoilt bay of Kato Zakros in peace. This is a great...
