"Incredible Location & Value!"
We had an incredible stay at the "On Top of the World". We travelled 4 people (two couples in the early 30's) and rented the top villa for one week. The location in the moutains is truly exceptionnal… More
Thanks very much for this review and the constructive input which we do take on board. Point by point:
Great that you enjoyed our food – it may seem expensive by Cretan (but not Northern European) standards, but we take a great deal of time and effort to prepare very special meals, using the best ingredients, tailor and serve them with personal and intimate attention to our guests.
We hope we make clear in all our marketing that there is a sofa bed in the East room of the Rooftop apartment. This is the best (and most expensive) sofa bed we could find, is a full size 160*200cm, has a full metal frame, sprung base and latex mattress. Most guests have found it fine, but we are going to install a luxury overmattress for use when the room is to be used as a bedroom.
As for drinks at the pool, we have changed our stock of beers to focus on speciality Greek microbrewery products, which are not easily for guests to find. As to charging for them, we have a dilemma. Our guiding principle is to create the atmosphere of “staying amongst friends”. This has to be balanced against the high costs of running and maintaining such a property, with the exceptionally high standards of quality, cleanliness and attention which we offer. This effectively amounts to a personalised service to typically to only a single party of 2-4 guests. And we do hope you enjoyed the mezes and cheesecake with wine which we provide free for our guests.
We provide detailed directions for exactly the reason that Panokosmos is off the beaten track - about which our guests frequently compliment us. It certainly is necessary to have them with you, or to have a satnav, to find us!
Thank you again for your feedback, and we do hope to welcome you to Panokosmos again in the future.

Great to have you at Panokosmos, and we enjoyed looking after you, especially given how much you appreciated the food we prepare! Peace and tranquility, rest and relaxation in a spectacular setting – we are on the top of one of the foothills - is what Panokosmos offers, and like you, we think the drive up is part of the experience – locals say it has the best views in the Apokoronas region.
We love to help our guests get the most out of their stay, and to pay special attention to looking after them – so glad you think we succeeded!

“Thank you for your comments. We’re so sorry that you didn’t enjoy your holiday. The property is marketed as suitable for 2 Adults and 2 Children with a large master bedroom with king sized bed (we were unaware that the mattress was soiled, it has now been industrially cleaned April 2015), an interconnecting door leads to a generous twin bedded room. The living accommodation is compact, however, with the extensive terrace with dining table and chairs (new for 2015 and not plastic) together with sun loungers I believe there is more than ample inside and outside space.
With respect to the ‘surprising amount of traffic’ and noise, this can be attributed to the owner next door having his Name Day party during the week that you were visiting, so it was noisy until late on the day, as he was celebrating in traditional Cretan style. It was family and friends attending the Name Day Celebration and is a once a year occurrence. The house is in a very quiet location.
I would dispute the suggestion that the property was dirty, our maid is conscientious, and does an excellent job.
The cooker has been relocated to a more suitable position for 2015.
The house is of traditional stone (18” thick walls) and is kept cool by keeping the shutters closed during the heat of the day, there is a large ceiling fan in the master bedroom plus two additional floor standing fans. I understand the request for a replacement for a broken fan was dealt with extremely quickly.
