Staff very friendly and accommodating. Awesome breakfast! Comfortable beds and very clean room! Perfect locations for walking everywhere.
Wish we could’ve stayed longer!
I am very pleased with the stay at the hotel, the hotel is located right by the sea with beautiful fine sand. Nice rooms, I was upgraded and appreciated the lovely views from my room. The hotel is fine with modern architecture, yet it is an absolutely stunning saff that really makes the hotel atmosphere - and for that reason I and many guests return again and again to this hotel.
Didn't like that the front rows of sunbeds were at an additional cost. I pay for the hotel stay, just to have access to the beach and the sea. Most of the guests now lay on the free beds, and peopel lived (cheaper ???) elsewhere hired beds in front. Some were families of 6 people, they shared 2 beds - but had many things around. It is just fine to lie in the back row of the beach too :-) , I still think the hotel guests should get the best deals/sunbeds.
Truly - nothing!
Too long list - staff very arrogant would not let us see the manager. We booked a superior room and they ried to give us a standard room, had to pay more for upgrade, although they did not charge this when we checked out, (one day early - could not stay the full 3 days) NOT a 5* hotel! They need to check the Galaxy Heraklion - that's what a 5 * hotel is supposed to be- No excuses about Greece being different - the hotel is a fraud!
Excellent location , very nice room well equipped , large with nice design public spaces . Unfortunately we didn't succeed to visit spa area , in order to have a full view of the services. The breakfast was quite good but not enough for 5 star level.
We had an unpleasant experience regarding the service of the breakfast , that was up to 09:00 am , instead of 09:30 ( although 09:30 is also very early for the W/E ) as it was written in the elevator . They advised us that thay had rescheduled the timing , due to an early morning program of a german group . We asked if we can have the breakfast in our room and their reply was that relative service was not available for low season period . It is unacceptable for a 5 star hotel , either to depend the time of the service on a group program or to offer lower services without giving clear notice of the status.
Nice hotel, very comfortable, nice sized room with a comfortable bed. Nice leasure areas around the hotel and very helpful staff. Good location
