I recently stayed at this hotel for two days and my stay was excellent. Location is SUPERB. 10 minutes from HER airport and a nice 10 minute (safe way) to downtown Herkalion. This hotel is a very contemporary hotel in Crete. The rooms are extremely clean, well-appointed, and even have your name printed on the TV screen as you enter the room. What I absolutely loved about this property (can't wait for this to come the States) is that you have to enter your key into a slot just inside the door for all of your amenities to work in your room. This is a big energy saver because you can't leave the lights or TV, if you take your key with you. Kudos to Galaxy for this. The toiletries were firs class. The bed was very comfortable and relaxing.
The salt water pool was very refreshing and different for a hotel. The front desk was extremely pleasant, nice, and helpful. The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast, which I must say was the BEST in all of the hotels I stayed at in Europe. The gym was one of the better ones in Europe also.
I was very happy and satisfied with my stay here and would recommend it to anyone staying in Herkalion, Crete.
