My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a cheap getaway in September and couldn't have asked for more. We thought it was basic but an ideal base. The rooms were clean, the pool was a little on the small side but very clean and had a sea view. There is quite a steep hill to walk up but if you're reasonably fit then it's not a problem! Obviously I wouldn't recommend for the less able bodied. The pool bar did nice snacks which weren't expensive and the owner and his wife were friendly. Sfakaki beach is also really nice and there were never many people on it which was good.
The only bad thing I'd have to say which isn't anything to do with the hotel is the woman who owns the little shop where you can buy bus tickets from was rude and looked constantly annoyed.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel it's a great little place especially if you're on a budget or just looking for a base to explore the rest of Crete.

Stayed: September 2013, traveled as a couple

Just back from 2 weeks here.
It is amazing value for money.
Smallish complex of apartments all with sea views. All immaculate and with free wifi available.
Whilst temperatures were over 30C with use of blinds and windows didn't need aircon as evening wind from the mountains blew through the room.
Breakfast, whilst late was fresh cooked and first class.
The pool was very clean and always a delight.
Yes there is a hill from the beach, but no worse than most seaside towns.
Local beach very clean not bad surf at times othertimes still, and with loggerhead turtle nests.
Good range of local eating places. Excellent and regular bus to local town.

My partner and I stayed a week in July 2013. Clean and well equipped apartment with lovely views of the sea and Mount Idi in the distance. A short walk from the sea, tavernas and amenities. Staff friendly and helpful and will definitely stay there again. I prefer this location as it is not part of the typical tourist strips found in places like nearby Platanias that is the same the world over. It is perfect for day trips to Knossos and Heraklion to the east, Rethimnon a few kilometres to the west, beautiful beaches of Prevelli and Plakias on the south coast and to explore lovely villages, Arkadi monastery and the outstanding natural beauty of Crete a short drive away. The manager Mariduthi was always an excellent source of information and her suggestions helped a great deal to experience this lovely island and its people.

We stayed for a week in early september. Had a 1 bed apartment (B3) with great views of the sea and pool from a large balcony. Apartment was well equipped (fridge, 2 hobs) with 2 sofas and twin beds. Very quiet apartment, we usually had the pool to ourselves for most of the day. Katerina, the bar lady is good fun. She seemed to work from 2pm - 8/9pm most days and when she wasn't around it was deserted, so you need to purchase your own food and drink.

The hill is steep but only about 200m so it's not too bad. There are 2 supermarkets (turn right at the bottom of the hill, the first one you get to is small, the larger one is just past the Shell station). In the village (left at the bottom of the hill and under the bridge) there are a couple of tavernas. We liked pantelis the best - good food and atmosphere. We also got excellent take away delivered to the apartments (from sky park - leaflets in reception)

Overall, we'd stay here again. Very relaxing and great scenery but not really any nightlife / other people, unless you travel to one of the larger villages or into rethymno

I stayed in Radamanthy's in July - August 2011 for ten days. Actually it was a very nice stay. Me and my partner were seeking for a quiet place to spent the holidays. Radamanthy's offers great sea view, ideal to relax while enjoying a drink from the bar. Katerina, the barwoman, is very friendly and pleasant.

Our apartment (C4) was very clean, both when we arrived and during our stay, as the chambermaid was very scholastic. We needed the AC (which was charged 7 Euros per day) only once. In addition we found the kitchenette very well equipped, enabling us to prepare quick meals, which we enjoyed on the balcony in front of the great sea view!

We didn't need a car, as the bus is very frequent and takes you to Rethymno in approximately 15' and to Adelianos Kampos, where a lot of restaurants, bars and shops, in 5'. There is also a bus station for Heraklion and Chania. Also, the beach is 5 minutes walk, but we prefered to swim in the pool, in front of the sea view!

The location, though, is excellent to explore the whole island of Crete.

In the region we found a supermarket and a few tavernas offering delicious traditional meals at reasonable prices.

Ηaving read the reviews here, we were worried about the hill but eventually our stay was very pleasant. I recommend Radamanthy's for a quiet and relaxing vacation.
