“Simply perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2010

We spend 10 days in the Galaxy Villas Hotel and it was incredible! I don't know where to start...
- We had a standard villa, 2 1/2 rooms with two balkonies (morning and evening sun ;-))
- The rooms where clean and really nice equipped
- The staff was really friendly and helpfully
- The Village Koutouloufari is really small and nice, very nice restaurants along and just a great view to chersonissos
- Also Koutouloufari is really quiet, for us it was perfect. So it was great to relax during the day and at the evenings we could easely reach chersonissos to make party (20minutes by foot, 5 minutes by taxi (7euro)).
- Also they had 4 little cats at the hotel itself what was great, because we love cats ;-)

If I come back to crete, I will defenitely go back to this hotel!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2008

We were transferred to this accommodation only a few days before travelling and having read the reviews were concerned as to what the property was going to be like. We need not have worried - our room was plenty big enough for the 2 of us - probably more space than we have had on any other greek holiday. There was a small balcony/terrace to our room which being shaded gave us the opportunity to sit outside without getting burned. Beautiful gardens.
We never had a problem getting a sunbed, and the pool was always clean.

Stayed June 2008

we stayed in this hotel in july for 1 week.Great location in a quiet and picturesque village in short distance of hersonissos.The hotel is superb with nice view to hersonissos.The pool might be up to 3 m. deep but is always crystal clear and there is also a pool for children.Rooms are definetely clean and comfortable and our room 44 had great view to hersonissos.The staff was very polite and helpfull.Overall impression superb though there wasn't enough parking space.

  • Liked — comfort and cleaness

We stayed at this dump in august 08, the swimming pool is a complete death trap dont go here if you have children as the swimming pool has so many dept variations .The rooms are as basic as they come, if you are self catering forget about it the cooker in the "apartment" has a mind of its own.
There is absolutely no facielities at this dump for young children .

I have travelled a lot but i have never seen such a place.
The staff are ignorant one day as my wife was talking to the guy in reception in mid conversation he turned away and started talking in greek to some other guy..

  • Liked — i only had to stay for 2 weeks
  • Disliked — it is gruppy the rooms are very basic

The apartments are situated in the beautiful village of Koutouloufari which made our holiday as the apartments didn't! We found them shabby - cupboards damp and smelly, shower head not fixed to wall, kitchen stained. All in all the apartments are in desperate need of a refurb. We didn't let it spoil our holiday and I can't fault where they are situated but don't expect A class superior apartments.

  • Liked — Where it was situated

These "villas" are nothing more or less than some basic bungalows... Old furniture, ugly bathroom,...it couldn't impress us at all.
However, I would give a 4 star rating for the service, especially for front office manager Stuart. He welcomed us with a big smile, and tried to do the best to solve our problems. Why not 5 stars ??? Cause he is messing around with some other staff... OK, a private life is none of my businness, but please keep private life and professional work separated: I was not interested in his shags, but he enjoyed telling around his love life.
The village of Koutouloufari is well located: you enjoy the beauty of a nice greek village and you are only a 5 minutes drive away from Hersonnissos if you want to party.
