We booked a double room online with breakfast via e-bookers, but on arrival were given a twin room and told breakfast was only available if you booked direct with the hotel. The owner said it happens all the time - maybe I'm being cynical, but I guess he hasn't done anything because he can then charge more... We also asked about changing our room for a double and he went through an elaborate process of checking his computer before politely informing us there were none left, but we went on line and checked the hotel's website, and guess what? Yep, double rooms available... We didn't complain further because there would have been very little point - instead we paid for just one breakfast there (which was very good) and spent our time and money elsewhere. The place was pleasant, airy and shaded, rooms were okay but no sea view and there's very little to do in Vagia - we walked up the hill to the church, walked to the Temple of Aphaia from where we caught the bus to the main town and ate every evening at the village's one restaurant doing any trade, down on the beach (very nice - see separate review).
