We spent excellent time on September, 16-26 in Amoudara, Crete, at the CASRTO hotel. Everything was OK. You only ought to ask for the room looking at the pool (very pleasant) as the streets are not quiet. The staff is friendly. The rooms were cleaned every day. The air-condition, TV, free WiFi etc. worked. The breakfast jams were marvelous with... More

as I live in a region with long and rather cold winters,I usually prefer beach holidays with warm foreseeable weather and warm water;so taking into account this years events which affected also holiday resorts,I excluded risky places and my choice narrowed down to Spain and Greece;as the prices in Spain are slightly above those of Greece,I finally decided to chose...

Goes to the top of I would expect from a 3 star hotel. We had spacious "family" apartment with 2 rooms, 2 balconies and a bathroom. One of the rooms is just for sleep while the other had a wardrobe, an electric stove all the necessary utensils (spoons, forks, knives, plates, frying pans and so on), a normal sized fridge... More

Basicly, you get what you pay for. We chose HB option and when I first was the breakfast I was amazed - it had everything I wanted wanted to eat :P My enthusiasm was tempered when we got to our first dinner. Not once was I able to eat everything - I just didn't like it. As for the rooms,... More

We stayed at the hotell for 9 days. During those days we only got towels when we came, only 2 bars of soap, and the bed was made but we never got new bedshits. We even put our towels on the floor and the cleaning ladies just folded that dirty towel and put it on the bed. When we checked... More

You can say that aircon is "working" if the only thing that works is the "On" light. There is no hot water at all (morning and night). The water pipes are making a symphony after someone uses the toilet. The bed is a hard springbox and pillows are flat and yellowish (see the picture). Soundproofing is pretty bad. You can... More

I could really say my side of story , but its really a waste of time ....anyway if you face problems with hotel facilities like turning on and of your climatization , its better to speak with reception and we can effort to help you. Well it seems some people really should choose luxury hotels with 30 Euros when they... More

Terrible room service , our towels & sheets were not changed at all & we also had to ask for more loo paper. The promised ' wifi ' only worked in reception & the restaurant. Also very surprised at there being a charge for air-con . ..the restaurant staff in the evenings were surly & quite rude at times .... More

Hardly any service been kept awake most nights by other guests shouting and laughing till 3/4in the morning most nights with no consideration about disturbing other guests sleep or care from staff Staff only seem interested in the Greek guests with very little other language spoken. Not often staff available on the front desk

Cheap and basic. Quite cheap but definitely very basic. I found hair in the bath, a big hole in the sheets, and poor (I mean poor) breakfast. Other than that, the family running the place is sweet and helpful.
