It was a last minute booking for us. When we arrived, we were greeted, told to leave our bags at the door, grab a table water side and enjoy a complimentary drink. That was a great start. The room was large, with a large bathroom/shower, very comfortable bed and beautiful balcony overlooking the water with sound of the surf. Although the rooms are over the canopy that covers the promenade where most of the water front restaurants are located, there were no noise issues and any chatter was drowned out by the surf. The hotel also provides free parking within walking distance of the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel

I have been in many hotels in Sfakia and this one was recently renovated. I have to say that is very cosy, fresh and the staff is friendly although in one incident they could have helped us but they didn’t. The other couple that was accompanied by us had a problem with the tv and it seemed to us that the hotel didn’t bother at all!

The recently renovated rooms provided us the most comfortable stay! Soft mattresses, perfectly clean room, amazing and relaxing shower and the peace and quite of the village in combination with the sound of the waves contributed to our perfect night sleep! We had no delay in our check in and we were treated by the always smiling family and staff kindly! We will definitely visit again!

The Samaria Hotel is centrally located in Sfakia basically at the waterfront with beautiful views over the small bay. The Samaria and Livikon Hotel belong to the same family and actually share the same rooms. The rooms have been completely and nicely refurbished in spring 2019 and the balcony rooms offer fantastic views. We had a room with 4 beds which was absolutely fine for our family with kids. The restaurant of both Samaria and Livikon Hotel has a very nice seafront terrasse and offers delicous food . Thanks to the entire team for a memorable stay in Sfakia.

We didn’t stay in the hotel but had lunch at their seafront restaurant after a wonderful drive across Crete. The setting overlooking the tiny bay was perfect,the food was delicious,and best of all the service from the friendly and charming waiters made it a lovely experience. Would certainly visit here again!
