Very pleasant stay, warm welcome, high quality service, fantastic rooms and well organised villas. Delicious breakfast, ideal for singles or couples in need to spend some quiet time away from city. The owner Constantinos is very kind and professional.

We spent a great week at Samonas in August 2015. The location is fantastic, up in the hills, with amazing views right across to the coast. The accommodation was spacious and well equipped, with good air conditioning. The pool is great and was rarely busy, and the little gym was an added bonus. A real highlight was the breakfast -...

The village hotel consists of beautiful apartments of which each is situated in its own newly built traditional-style stone house, the complex is set like a small village, very charming. I think that all of them have 2 levels, private terrace and some even have their own roof terrace. The hotel also has a nice mini market in the style... More

Stayed here for a day during my 1st ever visit to Crete. Though the hotel is a bit hard to find, once you check in, it's all worth the pain! It's one of the best hotels that I have had stayed in my lifetime. There is a character in every unit in the hotel. Everything is eco-friendly and support the... More

Wonderful and peaceful views of both mountains and distant sea. Several terraces for each maisonette. Tranquil place. The maisonettes have all thinkable appliances. Owner Konstantinos has carefully thought about every detail, be it the traditional decoration in the rooms, the music and books collection, walks in the mountains, ever varying and equally delightful breakfasts, the welcoming country flags for every...

Where to start? We stayed three nights at Samonas and just dreaded leaving. Konstantinos, on site most of the time was beyond customer focused. From the prompt and complete email responses; to the personal greeting; to the full tour of the property; to the creative and varied breakfasts; to the shop with food and wine supplies … everything was well...

The villas are simply beautiful, the swimming pool a gem, the blooming flowers taken care of, the vistas viewed from the terraces - breathtaking: all is fantastic. But, if you happen to travel with a small child or a disabled person, beware of possible difficulties: whole settlement (and the villas inside) is spread throughout several levels linked by sometimes steep...

Samonas is isolated in a small town of the same name. The owner is the best of hosts. He cooked great breakfasts each day that are served in the individual rooms or courtyards. The units are amazingly large and beautifully decorated in a traditional Cretan style. Our week there was totally relaxing. We did not want to leave.
