I put 1 just to show how different the experience is comparing to high ratings provided by TripAdvisor. In reality I would put 3. This is the 5* hotel, but in reality they barely perform on 4*. They have completely fail to manager full booking on all dimensions. I will talk just facts: 1) “-“ Accommodation: We arrived at 10... More

We had a week here in Crete, half board, with a sea view bungalow. The food was very good both for dinner and breakfast. The choice of restaurants was excellent and the staff in them very good. Children well catered for. Hire a car to see the area.

This hotel is not built like the Kremlin in Moscow, nor like a street in Amsterdam and it definitely not the fanciest hotel you can visit, like the hotels in Turkey, for an example. The rooms are very simple as well. But, an its a big "but" - its the best resort hotel in Crete: Its has about five open... More

We stayed at the resort for a week in mid April and had a lovely holiday. We arrived after 9.30pm and after a speedy check in we were told to go to the restaurant for our dinner. Then the hotel porter took us to our room, made certain we had everything we wanted and left us to enjoy our complimentary... More

Spent a week here in May. What can I say? Beautiful location, spa, room and food. Very attentive and polite staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Booked through Broadway Travel and all went perfectly. Fully inclusive with drinks with meals. Local wine and beer to high standard. Not much to see locally but wasn't a problem with onsite pools, beach... More

We decided to go to Pilot Beach Resort as it was on offer from Travelzoo. We wanted to go on the Samaria Gorge walk so this part of Crete suited us well. We were on half board basis and found the food to be of a very good standard. Trays were replaced when they were getting low. Plenty choice of... More
