Mike and family - UK

“Absolutely fantastic. Without doubt the best holiday I and the family have ever had, and we have had some good holidays. We will never forget Pavlakis Beach and we will always remember Antonios. We will certainly be back!”

Danny and family - UK

“A great holiday – more than we expected and yes Andonis is a generous host and we hope to go again in the near future! Thank-you for all your help.”

Kath and Murry - UK

“Just a quick note to say thank-you for arranging everything for our holiday. We had a fantastic time and have recommended your self and Andonis to our friends. The apartments were everything we could have wished for and we would love to return to Crete and Pavlakis Beach soon!”

Pam and Adrian - UK

“Pavlakis – an idyllic, amazing place with exceptional hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble for our host – Andoni Pavlakis, who treats his guests like family. Many of Andonis’s guests return year after year, a testament in itself.”

Marilyn Abraham - New Zealand

“I've been traveling to Crete from New Zealand for a number of years now, & I have met many friendly Cretan people, but none have been more hospitable & friendly than Antonios Pavlakis. I discovered Antonios & his very comfortable apartments as a result of finding his web site on the internet.  The web site stressed Antonios’ hospitality, but my friends & I were blown away by his welcome on arrival & the attention we received from him throughout our stay at his hotel complex.  Now no visit to Crete is complete without staying at Pavlakis Beach, discovering more of the ‘real Crete’.  All those I’ve brought with me on subsequent visits have declared that staying with Antonios has been the highlight of their trip. No matter what comes up he can deal with it. Take my word for it. Nothing is too much for Antonios –‘the host with the most’.”

Mike and Jacky G - UK

“We first found The Pavlakis Beach Apartments and our host Andonis in 1996.  If like us you want to experience the true hospitality of Crete then look no further!

A little poem penned by Jacky – and yes her little piece of heaven just happens to be Pavlakis Beach!”

My Little Piece of Heaven

My little piece of heaven
The place I long to be
Has a view of the island of Theodori
Set in a clear blue sea

My little piece of heaven
Has an ambience I can't explain
You go there once for a holiday
But you go back again and again.

Of course it's not quite perfect
It has been known to rain
And then there are the mosquitoes
I've just been bitten again

My little piece of heaven
I leave it with a tear
But my memories keep me warm through the cold
Cause I know I'll be back next year

So where is this heaven on earth you ask?
Where the welcomes so warm and so true
Well it's MY little piece of heaven

So forget it I'm not telling you.

Cheryl P - Toronto Canada

“My stay at Pavlakis Beach was absolutely, without a doubt, one of the most enjoyable places I have ever stayed. I spent 3 fabulous weeks there enjoying the magnificent beach, spectacular sunsets and I even witnessed the hatching sea turtles and helped them out to sea. Andoni (the owner) went above and beyond the call of duty for us, making sure I ate, slept and toured the island well! I felt like I was staying with relatives. By the time I left, I was so relaxed and 'a part' of the Pavlakis Beach way of life, I could have stayed forever.”

My rating: 10 out of 10
Changes: Not a thing
Recommend: YES

Kristal and Bryan Jackson

“In June of 2007, Bryan and I spent our honeymoon at Pavlakis Beach. It was a first to Europe for the both of us. Words cannot possibly describe what an amazing experience we shared. From the beauty of this Island and its breathtaking landscape, to the kind and hospitable people who make you feel right at home. If you’re looking for a relaxing day at the beach, sipping a refreshing beverage pool side, or perhaps hiking the Samaria Gorge, The Island of Crete is the place to go! Antonios made sure that we experienced the Island of Crete in all its splendors. I can say one thing for sure… you won’t want to leave!”

“The food is GREAT - went to Crete and put on 20 pounds in 2 weeks!!!!”
