“Relaxing week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Just come back from a lovely week away. Firstly can I say the staff are absolutely fantastic. So friendly and accommodating, nothing is too much trouble. The accommodation, for us, was perfect as it was right next to the pool which was great as we could go in and out to our hearts content! Inside is quite basic and rustic, dare I say a little tired. Could do with an update and maybe a few additions such as a toaster. Maids come in every other day and change the towels and make the beds. They give it a flick round but could be a bit more thorough, there were lots of my hairs left on the bathroom floor! Fabulous restaurants right on the doorstep, you are spoilt for choice. Overall, a lovely relaxing week.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool.

Stayed at Galaxy Villas in mid July for 7 nights, after a cruise onboard Costa Classica. We've stayed in loads of Greek accommodation over the past 20 years and this ranks right at the top (or close). We were upgraded to a two level villa (number 8) at no extra cost which made the holiday. Staff are very attentive and can't do enough for you. All areas are clean, especially around the pool and bar area. Our room was really spacious and if you've stayed in Greek accommodation before you'll know that Galaxy really is one of the best. Two minor negatives - 1) bar prices are on the high side and 2) rooms are cleaned every other day when bins in bathroom should really be emptied every day. Seen better housekeeping in other places.

Just returned from our stay at the Galaxy Villa's and cannot think of a more enjoyable stay in the past. Everything was exactly as we expected - perfect. Demitris, Yiannis and Thomas couldn't have been more friendlier or helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them - if they can get it for you or do something for you, they will.
Very spacious, comfortable and clean apartments in a beautiful setting.
Would definitely go back and stay again.

The staff would probably give you their first born child. They are so nice and patient (especially with a group of 52 college students studying abroad). The beds were the most comfy I came across in Greece and their kitchen food was awesome! I recommend attending their Saturday BBQ.

Room Tip: There are lots of stairs for the rooms that are farther away. The rooms closest to the pool/lobby co...

We have just returned from a lovely stay at Galaxy Villas. The room was great, lovely atmosphere, staff very friendly and went the extra mile to make our stay very relaxing. Our room was away from the pool area, with a sea view, this was great, as it gave us the peace and quite we needed when the pool was busy.

The only thing I wish I had known before we went, was that the air conditioning cost an extra 5Euro's per night, which was a big part of our limited spending money, would have been good to know that it was an added extra - this was not on the website, so was a surprise.

Other that than, it was great. We cooked in our apartment on several occasions, as well as eating out in lots of the tavernas in the village. We were made to feel very welcomed.

Room Tip: Ask for a Sea View/Garden view, quieter and have a lovely view

We returned recently from a relaxing stay at this hotel
On our arrival we were offered a lovely apartment with a large bedroom small but adequate kitchenette and nice lounge away from the main building and terrace overlooking the sea which was always very quiet
The gardens are beautifully maintained and very pretty although the pool is quite small and can get busy Our rooms were kept clean with frequent changes of towels and bedding
There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and we preferred to eat in the smaller local ones than go into Hersonissos - we particularly enjoyed Davids at the far end of the village a traditional small mezze taverna and Alchemy for traditional Greek homecooking but our most memorable meal was recommended by Dimitri who worked very hard to ensure that guests had a good stay-we caught a local bus into Heraklion and found the port area where we ate fresh fish caught that morning with the locals at a fraction of the cost of the tourist restaurants
