Overall the experience was nice: the hotel provides lots of entertainments for both kids and adults, the food was good, the pools are huge and the staff were nice. There are few major cons to this hotel: 1. Very far from the airport (about 2.5 hours with the airport transportation) 2. The rooms are certainly not 5 star class (old... More

Visited here as a walk-in booking and they saw us coming judging by the extortionate overnight rates! Recommended to us by a local, we had a very small 'maisonette' of average standard in decor and cleanliness, looking straight out onto the beach. The resort was spread out and getting anywhere (apart from the beach) was quite a trek as the... More

Nice clean and tidy rooms, great territory for the kids, pools, aqua park with slides. Very very good food at the restaurants, friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend for the vacation with kids! Don't forget to go to Georgopoulis to taverna Arkadi for dinner! and take a train from the hotel to visit lake Kournas!

Very important point: the complexe is huge, and the bigest and newest part is separated from the beahc by a tunnel. We were first set in rooms 4000's at the very end of the complexe. Don't expect to see the beach from there. Upon our disappointment (versus the reservation made), the hotel manager changed us to beach view rooms (2222).... More

On the shore of the Mediterranean just outside a traditional village - what better place to stay for a conference/vacation? And then there were the buffets for breakfast lunch and dinner - with a bounty of delicious Greek influenced dishes, the beautiful ground, the comfortable rooms, the friendly staff, the numerous activities and entertainment. It's hard to pick only a... More

We just returned from a week stay in the resort. Our room was the junior suite in the south part of the hotel. The hotel has some areas that are different in their atmosphere - ours was the quiet one with a relatively small and intimate swimming pool and close to the forest and thus a more relaxing atmosphere. There... More

Love this place for a summer vacation, great beach, lovely pools, nice spa treatments, food very good with a big choice. Staff very friendly & accommodating. Good location, entertainment pretty good. We had 2 bungalows on first floor with nice views. Overall a very clean hotel with a great holiday experience for the family.

Fantastic set up,great beach, lovely pools, amazing main buffet restaurant. Alternative eateries a little disappointing. A nice village about 20mins walk. Rethymnon worth a visit by air conditioned bus. Room clean and spacious and comfortable with a very quiet fridge! The only downside was a mass influx of french guests on an all inclusive basis, not available to other guests.

We stayed at Pilot for 1 week in July in a family apartment. The room was very spacious, with big entrance, room for kids, room for parents, wide balcony and nice bathroom. Beach is very wide, sun umbrella have plenty of room and always available. Food was very good, especially at Greek restaurant. Huge choice of any dish, maybe grilled... More
