Charming, charming, charming. We simply fell in love with the place. It is quaint and quirky with wonderful places to eat and drink. However, what really impresses is the sincerity of the Cretan people, they are warm and friendly and not pushy even when propping. I would say that of all the many countries we have visited, these are the most genuine people we have met.

It's my fourth time in this lovely mountainside village and I wouldn't hesitate going back again. The selection of good restaurants for such a small village is excellent. There's always a wind blowing, so no matter how hot it is down by the beaches, it's nice to come back in the evening to the hillside resort and relax and watch the beautiful sunset over the Mediterranean sea.

This resort is up in the hills and therefore is quite a climb from Hersonissos! It takes around 15-20 minutes to walk down into the town centre. The village has many bars and restaurants to choose from with a bewildering choice of foods. There is even a Chinese restaurant in the centre of the village! There is a good variety of shops, including a jewellery maker and art shop as well as souvenir shops that sell typical Cretan products. There are a few shops that sell clothing and footwear as well as bags and costume jewellery. You don't have to go into town at all as Koutouloufari has it all. It's a pleasant walk from the resort through the small village of Piskopiano next door and on to Old Hersonissos, where you can while away your time over a Greek coffee in the square.

Koutouloufari is a lovely village merging with Halloumi and a little further old Hersonisos. An abundance of wonderful taverns and shops - not a bad meal experienced and most reasonably priced. Can highly recommend Aposperido, Aphrodite and Bejing to Bali to name just a few. 30 minute stroll downhill to Hersonisos if more a more lively night out is sought and only €7 for a taxi back up to the villages.

It is a lovely resort but I have the feeling that it's losing a bit of its character; been overcrowded with restaurants and bars. It is not as commercialised as nearby Hersonissos. It's position is great to access both Heraklion and Agios Nikolaos.

Koutouloufari is a lovely village with lots of places to eat and drink. There's plenty of Greek tavernas to chose from plus places to get pizza's etc. There is also a very good Chinese/Cantonese restaurant. The views from the village are beautiful. Its about 10 minute walk down to beach. You can also walk into the 2 neighbouring villages of Piskipiano and old Herssonis which are worth a visit.

The village of Koutouloufari is an unspoilt village of little winding streets of old quaint buildings in which bars and restaurants and decent shops have been built. You would be spoiled for choice for where to eat and everywhere we ate was good with free bread and usually a pudding to share and a glass or small bottle of free raki to finish! Everyone was really welcoming and friendly. The only thing is that there are no footpaths anywhere and you spend a lot of time dodging the traffic!

Nice resort very pretty, more of an eating village than a party village, so perfect is you're going for peace and quiet, then if you want to party head down to Hersonissos, very busy place especially in the evening. One place to eat is Pegasus, this place looks quiet and hardly anyone goes but it's a shame as the food is delish, and the staff are fab. Cheapest place to shop for anything is Stalis, everything is like half the price of Hersonissos, so worth traveling too, also has a beautiful beach there, also if you have children, head to star beach, fantastic for any age! Another place to visit that is so much fun is the aquarium near Hersonissos port, only small but a brill afternoon out. Happy holidays, will visit again!

Returning visitor, this was our 18th time which could tell you something. We love the village, the people, the tavernas and restaurants. We bump into other returning visitors most times we go and made some lovely friends. The view over Hersonissos is my favourite, we have travelled a fair amount but the view always makes me stop, love it. It's a real home from home to us now. Shops are a little more expensive than in Hersonisss, downhill walk takes about 20 minutes, recommend a taxi back which costs 7 euros, great Greek nights on Mondays in old Hersonissos, not too much for kids to do but star beach only a short taxi ride away with all sorts of amusements. Trips can be easily arranged in the village. not for people wanting nightlife, clubs etc but there's always a good mixture of age groups, we are recently retired and prefer to go the beginning and end of season.

This was our second visit to Koutouloufari. It is a great holiday resort for families, couples and singles, older and young alike. Not suitable for partying teenagers as there are no clubs (Malia and Hersonissou in easy reach for them). Plenty of bars and restaurants serving good food, traditional and European menus. In fact you can eat at a different restaurant every night and more at very reasonable prices, typically 30 Euros for two including drinks. Staff in restaurants and shops very very friendly recognising you from previous visits. Don't be afraid to talk to them and look in their shops as they don't expect you to buy every time and are very eager to offer you their homemade Raki even at 9am. Don't offend them, accept it, it is good. <br /> <br /> The village does not offer attractions for children, although children are made very welcome in the restaurants. The beach is about a 1km downhill (takes about 15 minutes to walk to and 25 minutes to walk back!). Taxis are plentiful to and from Hersonissou for beach and bars costing about 7 Euros. The villages of Old Hersonissou and Piskopiano are also worth visiting, only a lovely short walk away from Koutouloufari. We have used the public buses to Heraklion and Agios Nikolaos, which is an excellent service and very reasonable prices. We will be returning.

Plenty of very good restaurants in Koutouloufari, Piskapiano and Old Hersonissos. Koutouloufari is situated on a hill and approximately 800 metres from the sea and a good climb on the way back. Not for the faint hearted.

Lovely village with some old, narrow, cobbled streets. Excellent bars and tavernas and lovely, classy shops. People incredibly friendly and helpful. nothing too expensive. You could eat as cheaply or as expensively as you wanted. Ate in 8 different restaurants over a week (7 dinners, one lunch) and everywhere was brilliant. Only downside is that the beaches are terrible! But if you don't mind this and are happy to confine your sea swimming to day trips/boat trips (because the water on that coastline is gorgeous to swim in) then Koutouloufari is for you.

Village is lovely, loads of places to eat and drink, but that is about all. You do need to go down the hill into Hersonnissoss for anything else. A couple of small supermarkets/corner shops, with corner shop prices! Not to sure about Koutouloufari being described as traditional though, it is very much geared up for tourism. We hired a car one day and went up into the hills towards the plateau where the villages were very traditional, nothing much to do up there though, so all in all I would recommend Koutouloufari and the Astra Apartments.<br />

Visited Koutouloufari twice a year for the past 8 years. Lots of great restaurants, gift shops and a couple of supermarkets. Fantastic views over the bay. Scooters can be hired and trips organised. Not a place for the less mobile, very hilly in places. Great atmosphere. Not too much for kids to do but most accommodation have pools and a 7 euro taxi ride takes you into Hersonissos or a walk down the hill, where there's plenty to keep everybody entertained. No atm machine or pharmacy which can be a nuisance if unaware of it.
