    I was very impressed by the staff- the front desk staff was excellent and went out of their way to assist me- always courteous and smiling. The same can be said of the room service staff and the maid who ckeaned my room- always helpful -courteous and smiling. I would also like to compliment you on your breakfast buffet. Thank you for a very nice experience for someone who spent over 150 nights in hotels last year.

    Excellent dinner menu, presentation and food fit for a 5* hotel.

    Breakfast very disappointing for a 5* hotel. Staff had to spend a lot of time in and out of the kitchen, due to a small supply of cooked food available at any given time.Many times we were waiting for a fresh batch of food. Day to day variety of food again not up to 5* standard. Replacement toiletries for the bathroom had to be requested from the housekeeper, as they were not always replenished.

    Beautiful hotel. Rooms were very clean and well designed. Pool was large and there were plenty of pool chairs. Breakfast was superb, extremely large buffet with almost too many options to choose from!

    Modern, comfortable and friendly hotel. We were coming back from Santorini by boat and had an overnight stay in Iraklion before our flight the next day. The hotel is ideally located just 5mins from the port and 10 mins from the airport. Close to the main shopping area. Also has a very nice pool area to relax. If you intend exploring the whole island from one base, Iraklion is actually the place to be as you are no more than 1 1/2 hours drive in any direction. In this case, I think that the Galaxy hotel would be a very good choice.

    Good

    It was just outside the hubbub of Heraklion, but close enough to it for when we wanted to enjoy it!

    For such a luxury hotel with such an abundant and delicious breakfast, it was annoying to have to ask for hot milk to go with my coffee every morning! Hotels with lesser stars have hot milk "on tap" ... Also our room was a little cramped...but I guess we got a special offer on the price and so were given a room to match...

    The friendliness of the staff. The design of the leisure areas. The hospitality all excellent.

    The room and balcony were a little small but the leisure facilities more than made up for this.
