Please judge for yourself

We booked our two week stay through a well known online accommodations booking site.
In short we got what was shown in our documents.

What we further encountered is highlighted below.

The pros.
They serve a good breakfast, reasonable room with terrace, daily room cleaning and adequate change of towels and bedding, easy access to beach, ten minutes walk to the main road for the bus stop, nearby the hotel are many restaurants. We enjoyed the lovely meals at the camping restaurant, a mere five minutes walk. The hotel premises are well designed, a nice restaurant where breakfast is served.

The cons.
Maintenance of the rooms is poor and the furniture is very basic.
The hotel also offers accommodation to large groups which resulted for us, especially at breakfast time and in the evening in a lot of noise and sometimes in a shortage of the mini croissants on the standard breakfast menu.
It was impossible to avoid the crowd.
When we arrived we were told by Mr Nicolas with great emphasis to pay cash at our departure which surprised us slightly since we noticed this earlier on the booking details from our online booking site. Meals had to be ordered in advance. To our surprise he told us we would get 10 percent discount and possibly 12. This he repeated twice. Something not to forget.
Two days before our departure we asked Mr. Nicolas to tell us which amount we had to bring and what discount would apply. Hell broke loose. The discount information had never been given to us. Hotel prices cannot be changed etc etc. My wife and I merely told him we both heard him speak at the time of arrival.
The day before our departure we requested and received a proper receipt and paid him the amount as shown on the booking papers.

The room was small. The bathroom was tiny. It was impossible to open wide the bathroom door because of the toilet bowl. The bed was uncomfortable.
We paid for 4 nights but left after one and lost our money. We didn't want to ruin our vacation

A lovely hotel set in beautiful gardens located just a short but pleasant walk along the seafront from the fishing village of Agia Galini. Our room was spotless and cleaned every day. The laundry was simply lovely. The owner, Mr Kolas is the perfect host and nothing is too much trouble to him. He is a perfect example of Cretan kind and caring people who go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable. If you are looking for a quiet comfortable retreat to be a base for your holiday then look no further
