Nice Hotel with good veiwsPosted Aug 31, 2014
We had a very pleasant stay, the staff were very good, the rooms and the site were all clean & tidy. It was place for people of any age to stay, it was certainly our experience there were families with babies, young children, teenagers, and adults from 18 to 80 and nobody, was out of place or uncomfortable. It was aprox 15 mins to the beach downhill, or into the town of Chersonisos which was very busy. Heraklion is only a 40 mins bus journey and at €3.00 each way is well worth doing. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from within 5 mins walk of the hotel offering some very good choices of menus. We were well looked after and would happily stay at Galaxy Villas again.

Lovely hotel with wonderful views of the sea.Posted Aug 13, 2014
Excellent! We had a great time sightseeing and swimming. Lots of restaurants nearby and a well stocked mini market across the road.

relaxed hotel in nice gardensPosted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: Staff Gardens Peace and quiet
Cons: Some people found the beds a bit hard but they didn't bother us.
Location: We hired a car. Visited Knossos and Heraklion. Also went to Spinalonga (as in The Island), Vau beach and the plateau inland. Excursions available.
We had a great break at Galaxy Villas in late Sept/early October. Dimitri couldn't have been more helpful. There was a slight misunderstanding about what we had booked but he arranged an upgrade for us into a larger apartment which suited us beautifully. We had a lovely sea view. The apartments are simply furnished but had everything you needed. Before we moved the shower in our first villa was rather small. However our new villa had 2 bathrooms and was generally more spacious. The villas are arranged to afford privacy to each unit. There was a nice pool with free sun loungers. You do need to take your own pool towels - cheap ones available at the supermarket across the road. The supermarket offered essentials but not a great range. Again more choice was available in Hersonissos as well as better prices Koutouloufari has an excellent range of eating places within very easy walking distance. There was no night life in terms of clubs etc so this probably wouldn't suit the young. However Hersonnisos (approx 25 mins walk) offered a wider range of shops and night life if needed However it was much more crowded even at the end of the season. We really liked the village and found everyone very helpful and friendly. Our favourite eating places were The Alchemist (thanks for the free Raki when we left) and the Dutch cafe (great apple pie and pancakes)

Fantastic, highly recommened!!Posted Sep 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
Set up the hill next to brilliant restaurants and shops, this hotel is excellent. The service was very good with the staff always happy to help & friendly. I had a studio apartment & found it to be really spacious & clean, not the comfiest of beds but a small price to pay for such a great hotel set in a lovely location just a short walk from the main strip of shops which is more touristy (thugh a tough little walk back up in such heat).

Lovely hotelPosted Sep 5, 2013
Pros: Location in Koutoulafari, opposite a lovely bakery/supermarket and 2 mins walk to bars and restuarants.
Cons: Decorate rooms, repair any broken furniture
Location: As above, can't beat it. Beautiful village, lovely people.
Great staff, brilliant location. We were lucky enough to have the apartment closest to the pool which was wonderful. Apartment typically greek, fairly basic, stone floors but comfy beds. TV doesnt work, but who wants to watch tv on holiday!

One of the worst hotel we had in GreecePosted Aug 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
No parking available. I was asked to park my car in a field nearby but it was really complicated to get in and it was full anyway. I ended up parking my car about two streets away from the hotel. Too many stairways to get to our room, which was a nightmare with heavy luggages. The beds are really not comfortable (too hard and thin). The pool is great though. The breakfast was good. The hotel was very hard to find (a good thing I had a GPS).

Lovely admosphere and great place to stay :-)Posted May 11, 2013
I felt welcome from the minute I walked in till the moment I left. Both George and Thomas was really friendly and helpful with everything i needed. My room was amazing with a sea view and in a very quite part of the villas, which I really enjoyed, sound of birds in the morning and enjoying a cup of coffee watching the sunrise was beautiful. My room was clean, spacious and well looked after and I cannot fault it at all. The swimming area, bar and reception had a stunning view and the admosphere was great. Breakfast was also good and on the two days that I had to leave early to go for excursions a breakfast pack was given to take with me. Koutouloufari is a beautiful village with lots of restaurants and shops and close to the beach and local busses, just a 10 - 15 minute walk and everyone was so friendly. It was also a bonus that I was able to experience a Greek Easter on my last night at the villas. I loved my stay and will definately return to Galaxy Villas and will recommend it to all my friends and family :-)

Quiet villa in a small village..Posted Apr 9, 2013
Ideal location if you enjoy being away from the beach. The hotel is about 30 km away from the airport, so if taking a taxi, it will be around 35 euro to the hotel. We enjoyed the area around the hotel. Sports bar right next door and some good places to eat down the road. The bed was the only downfall to this hotel. It was extremely hard and uncomfortable. George made our stay enjoyable and very helpful with planning things to do. Breakfast was a nice spread of Greek culinary.

lovely villas in koutouloufariPosted Jul 19, 2012
Pros: Staff, view, atmosphere
Cons: beds were not very comfortable
Location: PERFECT. Private but close to the many restaurants and shops in Koutouloufari.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience at Galaxy Villas. George is simply fantastic! He goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable! The view is fantastic! Will certainly stay in Galaxy again when I return.
