The Nicolas Villas hotel is located in the Aghia Pelaghia resort, and since 2009 it proposes an all-inclusive option. A little far from the sea, it has the advantage of being cheap, practical and well-kept. Its apartments are perfect for families, especially if a lot of room is needed.

    Location 3.35 /10

    Nicolas Villas is located in the Aghia Pelagia village, some 16 mi from Heraklion airport. The hotel has its own shuttle service that does approximately seven three-minute trips to the beach every day. There is also a water sports club nearby.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The hotel includes 93 rooms, some are double rooms and some are family rooms with a separate children's corner (with a partition). 80% of the rooms have a sea view. As for the bathrooms, they are clean and new but only have a narrow shower. The furniture offers a dubious mixture of grey tones and wood. All rooms have a balcony with plastic furniture. Some rooms are communicating, which is quite useful for families, but it can also be a bit of a nuisance in terms of soundproofing if they are randomly distributed. The rooms are equipped with a fridge and sometimes a small kitchen area, which is more of a waste of space than anything else, especially now that the hotel has an all-inclusive option. Each room has individual air-conditioning, but hair-dryers must be asked for at the reception desk.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The hotel was built between 2004 and 2006 and includes Greek architectural elements, with white-washed walls. It has a 1,080 sq ft freshwater swimming-pool, with a pool-side bar that plays music all day long. Parasols and deck-chairs are also available. Nicolas Villas does not offer many sports facilities, in fact, table-tennis is the only sport proposed.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    There is an indoor restaurant here: the setting is rather rudimentary, and the layout of the tables is not particularly well thought out. However, big bay windows enable you to catch a distant glimpse of the sea. Buffet meals are served here three times a day, with new island specialties every day. The restaurant also offers picnic baskets for guests who go off on excursions. if you're feeling thirsty, the poolside bar serves beers, wines and local spirits, such as the famous ouzo and raki, and with the all-inclusive option you can drink as many of these as you can handle until 11:00pm. Snacks, coffee and cakes are served at various times of the day.

    To know

    The hotel opted for the-all inclusive option in 2009, and its particularity is mainly to offer as many local beverages as you can drink. Its guests are mainly French, but there are quite a lot of Germans as well and the staff are very friendly.

      The Aetovigla, "eagle observatory" in Greek, is the ideal place for watching these birds in flight over the mountains of Crete. This ecotourism complex proposes a genuine escape into nature, far from mass tourism and luxury hotels that don't always equate with tranquillity. Here there is nothing better for relaxing than going for a walk in the mountains or meeting the locals in the small neighbouring villages. This is where you find authentic Crete.
