“Dissapointing to say the least”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

From the outside the villa looks imposing, but bedrooms are small .Pillows totally inadequate. Air conditioning was efficient. On arrival (late evening) we were met with a flooded kitchen floor. Contacted housekeeper who advised that it was probably a defrosting fridge to blame, and that there was a mop outside that I could use to clean up - just what I needed after a long journey...He blamed the flood on him not having enough time between guests to prepare for us - by my estimate he had the best part of 12 hours!! Housekeeping continued to disappoint - could not access the safe; immersion heater had been left on by previous guests causing the heater to fail, thus tripping out the electrics. We were out when this happened, resulting in fridge/freezer defrosting! When the electric kettle failed, housekeeping tried to blame us!! The lane to the front of the villa is very busy with lorries, diggers, vans etc. using it to access building work further down the lane. Huge dust clouds were caused by this traffic, and since the pool is at the front of the villa we found ourselves covered in dust whilst sunbathing. Very noisy in the lane from 07.30 every morning and again during the afternoon. Bath water took hours to drain, so we could not use it - did not bother to contact housekeeper - afraid we would be blamed for that as well!! Gorgeous views did help, but we felt rather let down. The poolside plastic chairs and sunbeds had no cushions. As regular villa renters, we found this to be one of the poorer ones.

Management Response
10 Nov 2013
We are so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay in Villa Daymer - this must have been disappointing for you. We are surprised as we have had so many excellent reviews from people who have stayed there before and enjoyed both the villa and it's beautiful location.
Our housekeepers normally respond quickly to visitors and deal with any problems efficiently. We will share your review with them and ensure that this doesn't happen for future visitors.
We weren't aware that any building work was to be carried out near the villa but it is unfortunate that the construction vehicles had to use the road past the villa. We understand the work was not extensive and should now be completed but we're sorry that this intruded on your holiday. The lane past the villa isn't surfaced but we haven't pressed for this as it normally discourages traffic and ensures that the villa retains an element of seclusion.
Villa Daymer has been enjoyed by many visitors and we have recognised that it is now due for refurbishment -this is planned and will be completed before the next season and we are confident that our usual standards will be retained. However we regret that there were some facilites that were not up to standard at the time of your visit and thank you for your feed back which we find invaluable in helping us to maintain and improve the experience for future visitors.

“Amazing holiday”
Reviewed 30 November 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Villa Daymer is situated in a perfect location and provided a great base camp for our time in Crete. With easy access to shops, restaurants, beautiful beaches and short drive away from chania and which is amazing for shopping and not too far from the airport. The villa itself is big enough for the whole family with a pool and games room for the kids and all the cooking facilities you'll need with a comfortable living area, and balcony overlooking the bay and olive trees where having a bbq watching the sunset is a must do and ideal for a night away from dining out.

This place has it all, great holiday. we'll be back

We stayed at the Villa from August 28th to September 11th, a party of 7 adults and 1 child.
The villa was really well equipped and clean.The views are fantastic from every window.
We had long lazy days by the pool, and ate in the villa some nights, making use of the BBQ and the fabulous terrace. The village was really nice and the restaurants all had good menus and very reasonably priced. We enjoyed Almyrida for the shallow water for our 2 year old and again some nice restaurants.Chania is an easy car ride away, although you can get a local bus. The lake and Georgiopulos are worth a visit as well, but in saying that it will be hard for anyone to pull themselves away from the Villa. Chris was very helpful from our initial enquiry right through until we went.
Cant wait for a return visit.

We had a very ejoyable holiday. The facilities and location were very good with easy access to the local facilities and beaches. The views from the villa balcony across Souda Bay were quite stunning.
