We have just returned from a week in Crete at the Villa Sonia. Overlooking the sea the views are wonderful. The apartments have absolutely everything you would need and are kept spotlessly clean. Despina the wonderful lady who looks after the guests deserves the highest praise, she even managed to hire my mother a wheel chair which made our holiday...

This apartment building is on the street facing a beautiful sandy beach and when you sit on your balcony it feels like the waves are right there. We had booked accommodation at the neighbor hotel Aris and they cancelled as I guess they had already closed for the season.Fortunately they spoke to Sonia who offered to take over the booking...

We stayed here for two weeks Sept/Oct and had a wonderful time. The apartments had everything we needed and were very comfortable. Loved the sea views ... It was a great location for us. We needed to rest this holiday due to recent family bereavement and illnesses so it helped us to be so close to everything. When we had...

These are great beach front apartments which have everything you need. Despina (Receptionist?) herself is very helpful from the first day. We stayed in one of the larger apartments which was very clean with modern fittings. Central located yet away from the main areas with the bars / clubs etc. A few reviews have mentioned the noise etc due to...

Dear Despina, It was you who welcomed us with a nice smile at Villa Sonia. You gave us all necessary information and space to let us settle down after our trip from the Netherlands. The small talk on the street with you and other people gave us a good look how life is in Crete. My wife is very happy...

As soon as we arrived at Chersonisos, we knew it was a wrong decision. It's the kind of place where you go for a booze-filled trip and it wasn't what we intended to do. Considering the type of destination, Villa Sonia is a quiet place with sound-proofing windows which is important because there's loud music until late. In fact, there's...

Dear Inês O, we are very sorry that Hersonissos did not fulfill your expectations. If only we knew about that, we could have suggested many places around Hersonissos that could have provided an alternative holiday experience. We wish you all the best. Sonia and Despina

The staff were extremely congenial and helpful.... The rooms looked on first glance to be fantastic as a small apartment. Unfortunately a few things stood out: 1. The bathroom has no set boundaries for the shower. The entire bathroom floods with water when showering 2. The walls were paper-thin, so if you aren't going to party until 4am, recommend not...

This year we wanted to try another place to stay in Chersonissos and decided to give Villa Sonia a try. We were not disappointed. The room was clean, the people very friendly and (maybe except for the WiFi reception) for us the location was excellent. Next time we try to stay here again for sure!
