Wonderful relaxing experience
Incredibly accommodating host. The room was wonderful and bed was really comfortable. The amenities were also great and included a cafe if any last minute items were needed. Guests were also able to request breakfast which was a great way to start the day.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Beautiful location and rooms.
Built from local farm building. Used local materials and traditional furnishings. Our unit included the remains of a stone oven and a well, which added to the traditional feel. Rooms are elaborately decorated with local objects. Service was excellent and the breakfasts were foody Cretan. Very peaceful location is reached by a narrow set of hairpin curves.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Complete and total disaster
I booked the accommodations in May or June 2014. In fact I made an error in the original booking, and had to rebook with the assistance of a hotels.com associate. Then ONE DAY prior to arrival I get an email from Lodging Operations (which works for both Expedia and hotels.com) that my reservation has been cancelled as the hotel has oversold the reservations. The owner/manager - who I was directed to talk to - claimed he informed hotels.com that the reservation cannot be accepted as early as June, but they ignored to inform me. This does not make much sense since the reservation had to be rebooked. On the other hand, the hotels.com employee who was "trying to help me" was NO help at all - he said either that we can cancel the reservation and hotels.com team will rebook us - without ever giving even a hint of any details - or that we deal with the Samonas owner/manager who was offering an alternative - essentially forcing us to deal directly with the Samonas manager. With family in the air I had little options given the total lack of support from hotels.com and took alternative accommodation arranged by the Samonas owner, at a completely different location, and without air conditioning and wifi. While we made it through, we were heavily overcharged since what we paid for Samonas was not returned and/or prorated. I will be calling hotels.com (whom I already emailed but no response so far) demanding corrective actions. As it stands, this was a total fiasco and a ripoff.
