Great & Large bed, Nice breakfast buffet, Super nice Pool (really big), very nice garden, Friendly & Helpful Staff.
Just a matter of taste.. style is a bit ‘rustique’ ... but still comfy..,
All very good/excellent. Sofia is the best. We have recommended you to family and friends and are hoping to see you all next year. The Viotto’s
We found the beds very hard!!!
Excellent location, suitable for walking and also for running. The hotel is close to beaches, local shops, taverns, restaurants, gift greek shops. Malia's old town is very picturesque with a pleasant atmosphere. Many car rentals/quad bikes. We appreciated the free double-sided transfer. Room – spacious, clean, beautiful views (second floor, pool/garden, very recommended). Fine cleaning service, fresh towels and two small bottles of water every day. Pool – nice & clean, deep. Quiet pool area. Breakfast – tried only once but quite sufficient who do not require special diets. Relaxing garden, privacy, hammock. Many supermarkets in short walking distance (Ria, Stefi market). Super Market Xalkiadakis is 1 km from the hotel, offering fresh fruits, lactose-free & gluten-free products and some organic food. Enjoyed delicious dining in Avli & Drossia restaurant, various taverns to visit. During the whole stay, we were taken care of by a wonderful receptionist Sofia, who has always been smiling, professional and willing to help. Thanks to you we enjoyed the stay very much. Ευχαριστώ
Hard bed mattresses (fixed by thin foam toppers). Big thanks to Sofia!!! The hotel is relatively quiet, although it took a while to get used to the constant sound of cicadas. The neighboring hotel/resort played loud music until midnight a few evenings (August). Closing the shower door is sometimes a challenge. Wi-Fi could be improved. Furniture is somewhat older but it is sufficient. Impossibility to lock the main door. A 13-inch laptop can not fit into the safety deposit box. The last fact does not apply to the Socrates hotel directly, but it is always sad to see on the beautiful islands like Crete that waste is still not sorted especially plastic.
Transfer from airport is great. Staff super nice and helpful with info. Breakfast included all you need. Great pool area. Clean. Quiet. Not packed with guests. Could go on and on...
The beds were a little uncomfortable for me. Furnishing a bit outdated. Two-bedroom apt did not have sufficient living room area.
We liked everything! All the staff is not only very nice but very efficient too! And the delicious hostess at the reception with her beautiful smile made everything to make our stay an amazing experience! We will definitely come back!
