"I first went to Sougia in 1985 and there was almost nothing. I have come back a few times since and although I regret that the village has grown some I will come again because of the great sense of space that I get there"
"My job is really high pressure and this place was the perfect balance. Wish I could fly in at the weekends!"
"During the week that we spent in Sougia I sometimes regretted that there was not more to do (I can't walk well because of a bad knee and don't like to spend the whole day on the beach) but then I realized that I can't have it both ways and that if there were more shops and entertaining things to do the peace of the place would be gone. I might come back but next time I'll bring some books with me"
"I have been to quite a few places on the north and south coast of Crete and I find the prices in Sougia, especially the restaurants, really good value."
"It is really easy to meet people here because Sougia is small and friendly."
"What I appreciated in Sougia were the sympathetic Greeks who were holidaying here. I didn't want to be surrounded by foreigners only whilst being in Greece."
" I have been to Crete a number of times but this is the first time I come to Sougia. What was REALLY noticeable were the waiters in the restaurants: they seemed far less stressed than in most other places although they seemed to work just as hard and their friendliness was not put up (or faked) for the job."
