Lovely villa with beautiful surroundings and perfect location

My boyfriend and I had a weeks stay at Villas Nine Muses mid June last year (2019) and this was our first time in Crete. We stayed in the beautiful villa ‘Irida’. Our villa had a double bedroom, a twin room, a bathroom per floor and a kitchen/ dining and living room area. There was a generous sized pool, accompanied with lots of sun loungers and a shaded terrace area. There are stunning views of the mountains and scenery surrounding the villa. It was cleaned immaculately every day by very friendly maids and the pool and garden were also maintained daily. I think our villa had been refurbished but still remained lots of character. We knew upon arrival that the air conditioning had a fee of €50 per bedroom unit but putting it into perspective it works out to be around €7 per day which seemed reasonable by us and you'll be thankful after coming inside from the scorching heat. We booked through a travel agent and our package included a hire car. The complex is about 20/25 minutes away from Heraklion airport. The roads were easy to navigate- with a little help from Google Maps. Crete is a big Island with lots of potential for exploring and discovery. The location is fantastic. We ventured out a few times to find a quieter sandy beach (20 minute drive away) and had the best day at AcquaPlus Waterpark (10 minute drive). Even though we drove to find a beach there are other beaches in walking distance. If you go down the hill from the complex there is a main strip with more ‘commercial’ and touristy bars/pubs/clubs along the seafront going towards Malia- which isn’t what we particularly come to Greece for! If you love pure, traditional greek culture and food, walking 15 minutes up from the complex you are warmly greeted to a village with greek tavernas, independent shops and supermarkets. Everyone we met were ALL so friendly and welcoming. We highly recommend tarverna ‘Patriko’, the food there was amazing!!! I think it’s important to mention that even though the villa has steps going up to the road, the walk up is very steep and the roads are bendy and narrow and may be a problem to some. Bring a torch for walking back at night and wear comfortable shoes… We were a little bit apprehensive about the noise complaints left on other reviews but we personally had it really lucky and had some very respectful guests beside us. Overall, our stay was a perfect balance of everything we wanted and we personally couldn’t fault our time in beautiful Hersonissos! A big big thank you to all of the villa staff!

Stayed in Villa Aktea mid June. Staff wonderful, Vasso the manager was great sorting our transfer back to airport after Thomsons cock up! Maria took care of our villa and we again thank her. Villa is perfectly situated for walking to busy Hersonissos or for walking to old hersonissos for Monday Greek nights, book Sofas if you want a table and get there before 7pm. Scorpio beach the best place for beach 10 euros for sunbed but beach towel and iced water supplied, also lovely food. Don't miss Palmero beach restaurant, Costas could not have made our 40th anniversary any better, thank you to him, lovely spot overlooking the sea and wonderful food. Back to the villa, spacious and retains its Greek feel. Downstairs bathroom could do with shower curtain as everything gets soaked and move the washing machine out into the kitchen (plug sockets in bathrooms made us nervous) Kiddies pool too deep for our 2 year old grand daughter to stand in (think it is a converted jacuzzi) main pool is also quite deep (I'm 5'5" and had to stand on tip toe) lovely though, fantastic barbecue area and spent lovely evenings on the well lit patio - a fantastic holiday.
Not suitable for families, sadly

The accommodation is decent 3 star stuff. Could do with a bit of TLC but actually not bad. We have plenty of outdoor space and the pool, though small, is actually great for a family of four. We were asked to pay e50 per AC Unit, not per property... E150 for a week's AC is a joke. The units look pretty knackered too... As it happens we can get by with one. The only problem with this place and the reason we wouldn't return is that many of the other properties onsite and in particular the surrounding properties are rented out to groups of teenagers and early 20 Yr olds, they keep very different hours, are super noisy all night and make the place unsuitable for families. It's a shame as the location is pretty good and they'd probably be able to justify spending a bit more on the grounds if it was going to be seen by more people during daylight hours. So, if you're 21 this is the place for you. If you're a family group , there's better hotels and apartment villages around town.
Lovely accommodation- not exclusively for families!!

We stayed here for 2 weeks in August. Our party consisted of me and my husband and our 10 yr old son. Pros- Lovely spacious villa Nice pool area Plenty of sun beds Away from town centre Not far from supermarket Daily cleaning service for villa and pool area 15 min walk from beautiful traditional villages 10 min walk from main resort Cons- On a steep hill - good exercise for us, but those with mobility issues would struggle Biggest issue was that the owners accept bookings from younger same sex groups (boys) which surprised us as we believed it was a family oriented complex. We had 8 guys in the villa next to us who were doing what you would expect guys in their early twenties to be doing - drinking throughout the day, playing their music very loudly etc. Although they did quieten down when asked to do so, I was disappointed that I had to ask - I was on holiday to relax
