We try to go to Crete every summer and we try to stay the longest at AGIOS PAVLOS hotel. First Crete is paradise but the South of the island is still very wild, peaceful and magical. Agios Pavlos Hotel is your main option for sleep and food. The owner and his family are incredible, everything feels like another time, a slow, fun, far away gateway time… I hope this hidden heaven does not develop too much, the beaches around are deserted and stunning, thumbs up for the fabulous welcome and the fabulous people, from the hotel and visiting the hotel. They have two buildings to stay at. The older one (closer to beach & restaurant) is been refreshed and is very nice, the new building, on top of the mountain is a bit of center but fantastic. Cant go wrong either way. Prices very decent, half on the north part of Crete.
