Everything was great: food, room, staff,... The bus to Chania stops just outside of the hotel. Wifi was not included in all in formule for a week you have to pay € 15. That is something that should be free in all in.

No stomach problems whatsoever. - The animator from the mini-club, Gosia, is doing an amazing job, our daughter enjoyed a lot going to the mini-club activities, including... More

Very convenient to take a trip to Chania city or other places om the way: Gerani, Platanias, Agi Marina etc. The bus stops conveniently just outside of the hotel's main entrance. There are many small cafes and tavernas if someone wants... More
