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.

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.

2/10 Poor

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 associate. Then ONE DAY prior to arrival I get an email from Lodging Operations (which works for both Expedia and 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 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 employee who was "trying to help me" was NO help at all - he said either that we can cancel the reservation and 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 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 (whom I already emailed but no response so far) demanding corrective actions. As it stands, this was a total fiasco and a ripoff.

Slice of heaven
Went to recharge batteries - pre Easter. And this place really worked. Had it all to ourselves. The views from our balcony were stunning. The breakfasts legendary - fresh yoghurt, honey, fruit, spinach pies, cheese and walnuts, eggs, fresh coffee, avocados with honey, fresh orange juice. And that happened every day. After a refreshing dip in the plunge pool looking at the snow capped mountains, The host is an absolute star - makes brilliant quince jam - available from the little honesty shop on site. He also bought my mum ingredients to make the jelly she loved. A great spot for spring flower hunting. Dont miss the monumental 3000 yr old olive tree down the road too.

8/10 Very good

Something different but excellent
At first I was a little freaked out when we were driving from the Chania airport to the hotel. It seemed so far. I got especially concerned as we drove up --what I later dubbed-Goat mountain.But when we got there-and up the stone stairs with all the beautiful flowers and trees and into our amazing room complete with fireplace and a great balcony overlooking the valley-I knew I had made the right decision. Yes the hotel is out of the way, yes it does take about 20 minutes to get up the mountain, yes you are about 40 minutes from Chania's town center but the time goes by fast (once you know where you are going) and the ride is half the fun, The owner of the hotel created this little piece of paradise with nothing but utter devotion. It seems that there is nothing he hasn't though of--our room even had a washing machine and soap for goodness sake!

Traumhaftes Haus, traumhafte Lage,
hervorragend und sehr liebevoll restauriertes Haus in idyllischem Bergdorf. Der Eigentümer sorgt für einen sehr persönlichen und umfassenden Service. So ist im Hause ein kleiner Supermarkt mit allerlei Spezialitäten und Köstlichkeiten eingerichtet, so dass man sich auch selbst versorgen kann, Allerdings lockt einen das "Adlernest", gleich um die Ecke, ebenfalls mit köstlichem Mahl. Das Frühstück im Samonas ist umwerfend und wer das verpasst ist selber schuld.
