The hotel itself had all the modern facilities required and the rooms were large, clean and inviting and we paid extra for a balcony overlooking the pool and water and it was well worth the additional expense. The staff were extremely friendly and... More

The hotel is compact, lovely pool, bars and buffet-style restaurant. It's approx. €12-15 into Chania, which is great for food... More

There was free air conditioning/heating in the room. If the weather had been good it would have been a perfect place to spend a week. The reception staff went... More

The little added extras such as the bowl of fruit to the coffee machine were greatly appreciated as was the refrigerator.The kids especially liked the towel animals that housekeeping made, every day there was a different creation,not...
