Stayed here for 1 week with a friend, we had low expectations because the rate was very low. But we were treated like royalty, the family who runs the hotel was super kind to us, so helpful, and they provided 5 star service - really, I can say this as a Hotelschool student specialized in 5 star hotels. There were so many little touches, for example: one day we woke up and sat on our balcony chatting. Suddenly there was a knock on our door, and the lady in charge(so sorry I forgot your name) brought us fresh cake and traditional greek breakfast with a big smile; for free! Just because she saw from outside that we were awake.
Also, we got a bigger room than booked (bedroom + living room!, super clean) and we had an amazing stay. Booked through Crete Holidays (super cheap and reliable! Nothing went wrong!!!).
Thank you so much, we will be back and I recommended this to all of my friends and family.
P.s. if you go here, a must-visit is restaurant Eleven (right next to the hotel)!! Best host, great food for a super low price, overlooking the sea.
