      “Fabulous!” Our 7yr old said "wow" when we arrived at the apartment and stepped out onto the balcony - it is definitely worth a wow! It is also worth the drive from the airport, don't be put off by this, the route was easy, the roads are good and you end up in a beautiful part of the island, away from mass tourism and crowded beaches. The apartment is well equipped, the pools are fantastic and having the local bakery deliver bread and spinach pies to reception each morning at your request was an added bonus! We also made use of the organic vegetable stall down the road which kept our daughter happy with giant tomotoes and melon! Our favourite beach was "Green Beach", just down the road, a beautiful setting with a great taverna, friendly staff and excellent food at very good prices. We would also recommend visiting Sitia, for the lovely harbour, cafes and shops and a visit to Spinalonga is a must, especially if you've read "The Island". It was a joy to return to the apartment after our days out and relax on the balcony with a meal and glass of wine and we would thoroughly recommend the apartment to anyone due to its location, facilities and the value it offered. All communication with the owner Lisa was via email and her promptness and information made the whole process very easy - thankyou for this. The world's a big place with so many places to visit, but this is one we'd return to!

          “Had a perfect holiday!” We had a lovely 2 week stay here in the summer holidays. The apartment is very modern and clean. It was furnished to a high standard and had everything you needed. We did a mixture of sitting by the pool which was perfect for the days you didn't want to venture out and also hired a car to travel to beaches such as 'scramble cove'. The restaurants in Makrialos are really good. We'll definitely be back!

              “Five Star facilities in a beautiful location” Villa Lagada is a truely magical villa located off the beaten track. The standard and facilities at the villa were five star. We have never seen such a clear night sky so spent many evenings on the roof terrace looking at the stars. Everyone in Makrigialos was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We would recommend learning about the owls before staying - it may save a sleepness night!

                                “Well appointed villa in an excellent location with fabulous outdoor areas” Despite arriving at the villa at 2am we found it without trouble thanks to the directions provided. In the morning we woke to the view of the Libyan Sea and explored the villa and outdoor space - we weren't disappointed! The villa is very well equipped and comfortable and the outdoor space is fantastic. The area is peaceful but it's very easy and quick to get into Makrigialos where you'll find a great selection restaurants and a fabulous beach. There are lots of other places to explore also from secluded beaches to hill top villages, gorge walks and islands.

It was an absolute joy to return to Villa Danae again this year. All was just as I remembered but now with the added bonus of a solar cover over the pool which has really increased the water temperature. The new gazebo is an excellent idea for shade as are the facilities for babies. It seems to me that all is needed now is for the parents to bring along the baby's clothes. I spotted everything from kitchenware, bedding, towels, toys, games and a spacious looking playpen, paddling pool, the list is endless. Well done to Kay and Steve Wright! They really have thought of everything it seems to me! Very impressed with all the facilities as before. Oh there is wi-fi too now! Weather was superb too! We arrived in a heat wave and so it went on for almost two weeks! Looking forward to my next visit already!

There was everything you could need in there. Theres a front terrace over looking the pool, back terrace and a roof top terrace, with lovely views of the sea from back and roof terrace. The pool is a good size for the 20 properties, there were always enough sun loungers no matter what time you went out to sunbathe. There's a mini market just outside the complex, restaurants nearby too, as well as restaurants and few bars at the harbour. Beaches near by, about 10 mins walk or the beach near the harbour is about 20 to 25 mins walk down an incline. Green beach is lovely and has a limited number of sunbeds but lovely food at the beach bar there. Highly rated on reviews. €6 for 2 sunloungers & shades. The beach in front of sunwing €7 for 2 beds & 1 shade, There's a beach bar there, self service, pre prepared food, salads, sandwiches etc drinks, and a basic snack bar at one end. Beaches near the harbour had free beds if u ate at their beach bar. Food and drinks tend to slightly more expensive.see more

Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday, loved the apartment and Makrygialos. Apartment is so comfortable and felt at home really quickly. Lagada resort is well maintained and run. Reception staff always on hand if needed. Even though it was peak summer holidays both pools were quiet enough to always get a sunbed. Many times we had pool to ourselves. The terrace is the best feature of this apartment so nice to be able to sit outside in comfort. Loved Makrygialos and village feel, very unspoilt and friendly. Local butchers was brilliant.

                                                                                  Wonderful stay at Lagada Beach Resort

                                                                                  We have just returned from a wonderful two weeks at Lagada Beach Resort. Simon’s penthouse apartment was everything we expected it to be. There is a fantastic view from the main balcony and the roof terrace, beautiful to wake up to in the morning and the roof is perfect for star gazing at night. We had great use of the pools and they were never overly busy. The beach is about a five minute walk away and was perfect for an early morning or evening walk. If you scramble over the hill at the end of the beach and onto the next one, there is the most perfect little taverna serving beautiful food at the end. The walk into town takes about 30 minutes and is best done in the evening as it is quite hot in the heat of the day. The town had a great selection of restaurants and most are at a really reasonable price. I would say this is the most unspoilt part of the island and my highlight was going up into the hills to the Vreiko Cave which was such an adventure. We stopped off at a lovely taverna in Peifki on the way back which was owned by a lovely German couple who served really delicious rustic food and we had grapes from their garden to end the meal. We also loved our trip to Sitia and went to see a local football match while we were there. Again great restaurants here to. A go on the crazy sofa at George’s Watersports on Makry Gialos Beach was great fun for the kids. The staff at Lagada Beach were extremely friends and very helpful, we loved going to the little cafe on site, great for breakfast. The kids thoughly enjoyed the movie night which was laid on one evening at the cafe. All in all we had an amazing two week stay and have made some wonderful memories. If you are looking for unspoilt Crete, this is definitely the place to go.see more

                                                                                  Perfect relaxing holiday in a fabulous location

                                                                                  We were a family of 7 and stayed at villa Estia for two weeks. From the moment we arrived we were able to relax. As we arrived at 1am we had arranged for Areti from Lagada resort to purchase some basic food items and these were waiting for us. The villa has everything and more you could wish for and many days were spent lying around the pool area and eating al fresco around the BBQ and seating areas. Great communication from Martin and Sue prior to our arrival and they made several suggestions about places to visit and dine out. The Pepper Tree (Taverna Piperia)) in Pefki is well worth the visit especially on a Sunday evening when there's traditional live music and dancing. We can also advise a trip to Stavrochori, visit the middle restaurant in the square for the best meze we've ever had (don't eat before you go) Gusto's in town is also well worth the visit, but only open in the evening. The sunsets from the villa are amazing, not to mention the fabulously clear skies at night for star gazing from the roof terrace. Makriyialos has plenty of little tavernas to visit and the beach is very safe. If you want to get away from the crowds we can recommend the beaches a little further east and only a short drive away. A visit to The butcher in town is a must and do buy some traditional Cretan bread to make Dakos (rusks soaked in chopped tomatoes and feta or local Cretan cheese on top) We can also recommend the local honey drizzled over it all. We booked a semi private cruise with Nautilus cruises which took us to Chrissi Island for the day. The lunch on board was tremendous as too was the snorkelling off the boat. All in all it was a superb holiday and we made some lasting memories that we shall cherish forever.see more

Apartment was small but comfortable and the swimming pools and snack bar were great. Wonderful part of the world. Only real improvement needed was a better internet connection. Perfect for families.
