I have just returned from Paradise Island Villas in Crete and wish I was back there already! My husband and I took our nine-week-old son for our first family holiday and stayed for a week, 27 Sep - 4 Oct. Before we arrived I was apprehensive that it wouldn't be the right kind of resort for a family with a...

I endorse every positive thing written about these villas. I have nothing to add other than Eleni arranged an amazing trip in a rib to the secluded island of Deia? We are already planning our next visit.

We chose Paradise Island Villas as we wanted a relaxing break for this trip and that is exactly what we got.

We stayed at PIV for our honeymoon in September. We had a fantastic time and couldn't have asked for any more. Our villa was lovely and had the privacy of its own pool.

The level and warmth of service was outstanding, led by Eleni and Pol. Nothing was too much for any of the staff. The hotel and villas themselves are beautiful, spacious, well appointed and sit within a lovely, tranquil setting. We would not hesitate to return. Knossos Palace is a great place to visit if you're into culture.

We had a three bedroom, three bathroom villa with private pool everything about it was excellent with extra touches including sandwiches, fruit and drinks in our villa on arrival as we arrived late and the owners thought we would be hungry. Eleni and Pol were so helpful and very welcoming. I would definitely book here again.
