While the breakfast was really nice, and the place could provide an escape from life, it's extremely hard to find, treacherous narrow roads where a 4x4 is required, we almost slid down the mountain on the wet muddy roads. With a GPS and Google Maps it's still a near-death experience getting there. No hot water for our entire stay - freezing cold showers.
There is nothing in the area, no restaurants or bars or entertainment, so they charge crazy prices for drinks. Hosts don't speak English (only Italian and Greek). The only "window" in the rooms is a 30x30cm (1 square foot) wide glass brick in the wall. It's very dark inside during day and night time. No toiletries are provided (no shampoo, no body wash).
Our booking was non-refundable, else we would certainly go somewhere else. They accept Only Cash. The photos are much better than reality. Only the King Suite has a bathtub, all others only shower. This was the most expensive hotel of our trip, and also the worst of all. They didn't offer any discount for the hot water problem, but still asked us for good reviews. There are many better places to stay in the area, this place should be avoided.

It is just like staying in a castle! ! ! It is a place inspired from a fairytale! Appropriate to relax and free your mind from stress. The breakfast was very tastefull, the staff and the owners always welcome, willing and smiling. Very nice enviroment and nice view. You can see another way of cretan life.

We had a great time in Crete and we need to thank the family owners and running the Palazzo for that. We felt like at home, the building is beautiful, the environment quiet and peaceful, nice swimming pool and amazing proper breakfast!
Always a smile and good advices about the island, places and restaurants!

The place is built in the middle of nowhere but is only 15 minutes from the beach by car.
Luxury to all of the equipment, from the mattresses till the chandeliers and a really lovely pool and surroundings until the last detail.
Absolutely quiet and relaxing place if you choose to, as the owners arrange the music at your taste. They are so friendly and helpful that it feels like home. The breakfast was also different, with Cretan homemade delicacies served at your table.
Our only problem was that our room was very small (around 10m2) as we were given only the bedroom of a suite, but it was ok for one night. Be sure to ask for a bigger one though if you want to stay longer.

Room Tip: Ask for a spacious room
