The entertainment was daily and ranged from belly dancing to DJ's , musical performers, etc. The staff were very courteous and hospitable. Yes the majority... More

I have just returned from a week at the hotel with friends and we all agreed that we could not have chosen a better hotel to suit our needs. The location is superb, right on the beach front and in a prime position to access nearby shops, restaurants, water sports and also Rethymno. The hotel guests are predominantly German but... More

Stayed in this family run hotel last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our coach arrived at 2.30 a.m. and following a quick checkin, we were invited to the dining room for tea, cheese, and small snack ; an unexpected welcome idea. I travelled alone, and was given a room on 3rd floor as requested, with a south facing balcony.... More

I have just got back from this Hotel. God, where do I start. Well It was full of Germans, not that I have anything against the Germans because I don't but I found them very intimidating, unfriendly and pushy. If your a fussy eater then you won't like the food, I thought there was very little choice and hardly ate... More

We have just arrived home after a week at this lovely hotel. After reading some of the reviews we did not know what to expect but could not find any fault. We had paid for a sea view which we got and the room was kept very clean and fresh towels everyday and beds changed every other day. Perhaps the... More

We went there to lay a wreath in memory of him & the crew,... More
