We liked the breakfast and dinner buffets in the restaurant, which has many interesting local food options as well as a few classics. The pool was very nice and open until about 8:30. Wi-fi worked great.

The staff is most helpful, the rooms well, yet simply appointed and clean, the restaurant "Per Se" has an excellent chef with inventive dishes, the servers know the art of serving, but with the remarkable hospitality Cretans display - will stay there in a heartbeat again.

Our second time at the Galaxy at the end of a longer stay in Crete. On check-in we were upgraded to a superior room overlooking the pool at no extra charge. The hotel is well placed on the edge of the centre with quick access to the national road. Rooms, facilities including the pool and food are very good. However... More

Very classy reception, lovely swimming pool, fantastic breakfast, and excellently appointed room. Hotel is on a main bus route into Heraklion, although it is only about 15 minutes walk. Open top bus tour stops right outside. What really made the hotel for us were the staff who were, without exception delightful. Every hotel should have staff like this.

This was the last leg of a 2 week trip with my family and it was the best hotel experience of our trip. They have the best employees and all were great. Everyone was... More

Very clean, modern hotel with helpful staff, especially in the Business Center. Superb restaurant and facilities. We stayed two nights. A welcome respite from more Spartan accommodations, but you wouldn't want to have your laundry done there unless traveling on a generous expense account.

We were only here for one night, but we were treated so well that I felt obligated to submit a review. The hotel is elegant. The staff is so helpful and kind. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever experienced in a hotel. Don't miss the restaurant. The food was amazing. The free breakfast was the best and most... More
