Radamanthys Apartments
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Sfakaki
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2016

We arrived late in the evening, as well as the lighting in the village (Sfakaki) almost there, then we threw in a vacant lot in the dark and said: "Go there, the bus is not driven to the hotel." I was raised with the bags and suitcase on a very steep hill in the dark and thought as if to get safe and unharmed. A good start, but it was only the beginning. The smell in the room was just awful - damp and mustiness, and soon found out why the shower is literally right on the floor with wooden flooring, which is constantly wet because no time to dry out. Holder for the soul does not correspond to the size of a watering can shower))) Fasten only in the position that the jet shoots up))) Sink with mold and plumbing with a touch of lime, toilet with reddish streaks - not clean. Mirror splashed all toothpaste from former guests. Liquid hand soap in an attractive container - all in the photo. The floors are not washed either with us or are likely to have. Dust on the ceiling and all over the place. Sea view rooms have a pair, the rest or the basement or on the wall. The sound from the electric panel shrill buzzing as of transformer station - sleep the first two nights was very hard, and then used to))) A surprising number, but the air conditioning in the room did not work, as you do not pay rent for them - 6 euros per day! Go to the sea too far and uncomfortable (still the same unlit slope). We visited all the taverns in the neighborhood: there is nothing to suggest.

Dear Sir,

I'm sorry for your slanderous comments. You know very well that the photos you post as well as your comments do not reflect reality. They are manufactured and intended to discredit our hotel.

I am also sorry that you illegally and secretly hosted for several days people in your apartment, without having informed the reception.

As soon as it became apparent, we contacted your travel agent (ANEX TRAVEL), denouncing this action and we simply precisely followed their instructions.

It is clear that the evllution of this incident dissatisfied you and you left threatening to discredit our hotel.
I was hoping there was more responsibility and honesty from you.

I hope you were more responsible and honest.

We stayed here for 10 nights earlier in September. The apartments are comfortable and very clean and are looked after by brilliant staff who looked after us well. Thank you sandy for the yummy club sandwiches!The pool is great and just the right size, the views are spectacular and yes there is a hill but unless you have mobility issues its fine to walk up and down. Go for a pedicure at the bottom of the hill and there are some good tavernas nearby for dinner. Have a great time you'll be well looked after!

My partner and I are just back from a wonderful 9 day holiday staying at Radamanthys apartments. The apartment was very clean as was the rest of the complex.
The staff were brilliant and couldnt do enough for you, even phoning the transfer company a few times to ensure that we were being picked up outside the apartments even though we had been dropped off at the bottom of the hill when we arrived.
They offer clothes washing facilities for a very reasonable €5 per load.
Air con is a reasonable €7 per day and well worth it
I would definitely stay here again if/when we visit Crete again.

Room Tip: dont be put off by the hill to get to the apartment

Firstly let me address the Hill, yes it's steep and yes it's quite long.

The hotel it's self is gorgeous, the people are amazing, if not a little short on the ground. They will bend over backwards to help you and get to know you, so your holiday is a good as it can be, the pools a lot larger than it looks which surprised me, yes it's no Olympic pool but to just cool down in you can fit a fair few people in it and it's about 2m deep at one end so the kids leave you alone. Great views of the sea from the pool and it's relatively close to a supermarket although the closest one is the most expensive, if you turn right at the bottom of the hill you'll walk about 10 mins but that supermarket is far cheaper. If you want the city the bus tickets are purchased in the supermarket and the stop is left under the bridge by a cafe with huge coffee and snacks sign. There's parking if you hire a car, plenty of it, just don't hire from car auto, the car just wanted to die, as soon as it found the hill I feared it might! It's very secluded sfakaki so the beach is quite quiet if you stay away from the main hotel down there, but if you head to Thalassi he will happily invite you to his beach :) and for dinner and a drink and whatever you want basically! I do recommend dinner there if you don't want to cook, his food is the best on the island and he will treat you and treat you even more when you go back :) lovely guy as well!

The room in the hotel is spacious and very comfortable, especially the bed! Air con will cost you €7 a night but it's a fair price the Island Is so so hot! The safe €12 but you don't need to worry about that, there really isn't crime on Crete! I left about €400 out one day and the money was tucked away for me and the staff came to tell me where it was as soon as I came back

If you like a drink, head to the bar, after a night or two you'll know why and that's the best point to end on!

Go and enjoy it won't let you down
