Cute little hotel, bit remote

Posted Sep 20, 2017
Very nice hotel, we arrived late but the owner kindly left us a note and keys, room was up graded free of charge to a bigger sea view room due to our other room having a trchnical issue. Met the owner in the morning, very nice guy, very informative. The hotel was a bit remote with the only public bus station being a 30 minute walk away down a 60 road, the local town was very cute and had a shop near buy, the room was big and clean, bathroom a bit dated but definitely worth the price we paid!

Affordable perfection!

Posted Jul 2, 2017 on Hotels
We stayed at Villa Medusa last week and it was amazing value overall! Really close to the beach but still in a quiet area, great view of the sea, and a nice pool to cool off. The owner Nikos was so helpful and he even let us stay for the day after finding out our flight wasn't until the evening. Highly recommend this hotel!

Convenient hotel close to Chersonisou

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Room
Location: Perfect location, quite, nice, restaurants, bars, etc.
Experience was positive, I had a good time in this Hotel and the stuff was helpful. I was expecting a better room, website pictures reference did not correspond exactly and i was a surprise but it was great to have an amazing swimming pool and Chersonisos village just min away from the accomodation.

The hotel is nice.

Posted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: Calmness, comfort
Cons: To clean the apartment more often not only once a week.
Location: You can spend a fine evening in one of the taverns nearby and try delicious Greek food.
You can find everything in the apartment. The host is very friendly. Nikos is always ready to help. However, if you don't have a car, it will take a lot of time to get to the sea as it is rather far. The place is quiet. It's for the people who are tired of noisiness and wants a good rest and relaxation. Nearby you can find a bakery, a mini market. In the evening you can enjoy having dinner in one of the taverns which are not far from the hotel.

Quiet, relaxed, initially lost!

Posted Jun 22, 2014
Pros: Location good for NE Coast and Elounda Room was clean Bedding comfortable GOOD shower Lovely pool
Cons: Microwave would be helpful Pool bar not open
Location: Based in Old Hersonissos. No Malia type clubbing nearby. Mutliple family run tavernas - great food, Cretian wine lovely. And you must go to Elounda!
Our trip started in chaos following our flight out with easyjet. Arriving near midnight in Heraklion meant finding the hotel was more than a little challenging. Address not quite right, and post code off on the sat nav meant it took us 2 hours! Helpful hint here: Drive straight along the big road from Heraklion towards Agios Nikolaias and do not turn off until you arrive (approx 30km later) at temporary roundabout signposted for Hersonissos. This should be a left turn. Immediately after a little underpass take the righ hand turn. Then the next two lefts. After 2-300 yards you should see a big hedge with a sign in it (and I mean litterally in the hedge) saying Villa Medusa. It has white gate - you are there! The hotel itself was very clean - we had the room at the very top - doublebed, lovely bedding, aircon fantastic, two balconies - one sea view and the other garden/pool. Nikos thankfully provided a bottle of water for arrival on the first night - Cretian water is very chlorine flavoured from the taps - beware this will affect tea/coffee so best to use filter water for those! The pool was great. Unfortunately the pool bar was not open when we were there :( but, as the only holiday makers, there we did practically have a private pool so really can't complain! Kitchen facilities were a stove top and a fridge. Frying pan and large pot provided. No tea towel so may be best to pack one. Otherwise towels were provided.

Fantastic service great for relaxation

The location is different to on the map. It is actually right next to hersnossisos village. The area is super quiet and the village has everything you need. I would recommend hiring a scooter or a car. I did not but a taxi to new hersnossisos, on the coast, is only 6/7 euros. The owner Nikos is very friendly, helpful and nice. He helps you then leaves you - no awkwardness. The snack bar was closed as the villa was empty apart from me in the daytime, which is fair enough as I was on holiday alone.

Great stay at Villa Medusa

Posted Sep 20, 2011
The appartments are located up in the old village, away from the noisy and busy downtown Hersonissos, yet with all the necessary shops and tavernas. A pleasant villa, with a swimming pool surrounded by a lovely garden. The owner, Nikos, is very welcoming, helpful and generous. His warmth and kindness really made a difference to our holidays.

Amazing villa in the village

Posted Sep 11, 2017
The first day we arrived very late due to delay, and we informed Nikos which was kind enough to wait for us. The next day we woke up with an amazing view of the villages and the sea. We then went quickly in the pool -and gt a little tan. The villa is close to the old hersonissos village which has amazing restaurants!! Villa Medusa is very clean, everyday the bed was made, floor was cleaned, towels. It has a fridge for your food and water,(even ice) The showers are clean and new and nice and warm water. The beds sleep amazing, which is perfect after a long day exploring Crete. Nikos(the owner) is very very nice, superfriendly and makes a chat with you and everyone everyday. Which makes it a very special stay in villa medusa.. We will come back for sure. Jurrian & Nicole(Chile)

Villa Medusa en perle på Kreta

Posted Sep 11, 2017 on Hotels
Et helt igennem fantastisk sted. En sød rar og imødekommende vært, der gør ALT for sine gæster. Det mest rene og komfortable hotel med daglig rengøring af værelser, skift af linned og håndklæder og et super rent poolområde og bassin. Skøn beliggenhed i det gamle Hersonissos. Fred og ro og alligevel masser af små tavernaer. Et yderst venligt og imødekommende lokalsamfund hvor man føler sig velkommen. Vi kan på det varmeste anbefale Villa Medusa og vender helt sikkert tilbage hertil.
