This place is all about positive staff. Many thanks to Vicky, Sophia, Nasos(Aphanasiy) and the rest. Vicky is the lovely receptionist and she will provide you with the information you need to know about Crete. Sophia and Nasos will make your evenings wonderful at the bar. Nasos makes the best cocktails with Hendrix Gin.

The room was clean and the staff were quite friendly and helpful however we encountered a few problems such as a broken air-conditioning and cleaning staff member who threw our bags across the room. The food was okay with some choice available however drinks or even water is not included with dinner and Wifi is 15 euros inside your room.

I've just come back from a week long girls holiday (6 of us aged 18/19) and we stayed at this amazing hotel. I'd heard lots of good things about before arriving and it really lived up to expectations. I'll write quite in depth about everything but I'll put subheadings and I'll be happy to answer any specific questions anyone may... More

This was a nice break from the common deals in Europe. Instead of the small overpriced room you would likely find in Paris or Germany, this place was affordable, spacious, right near the beach and even came with a nice breakfast spread. The hotel staff was also VERY friendly and were quick to carry our heavy bag to our room.... More

Me and my friend spent a wonderful week in the late august in the Philoxenia hotel. It was totally amazing. The location of the hotel is really good, everything in the walking distance: beach, shops, bars and clubs. Despite that the main street is very close, there was pretty quiet at the nights. The hotel has a parking and a... More
