I gave this place 5 stars and that is particularly because of some of the staff. The place is nice, interestingly designed, comfortable, original, clean, all the basics are there but it's so much more. The food at the restaurant is AMAZING. Sabrina, the lady who runs the spa is fantastic and Xanthe, who took us on our tour and... More

We stayed for a week in this hotel just before the winter close-down. It was a great time. Make sure to choose the room you want because there are a lo of different rooms. Bigger/smaller, with a balcony or private terrace, less or more luxure, quiet or more lively. In the spa, we had the massage twice just because it... More

Wa stayed 2 nights in the room called "thalia house" which disapointed us a lot for many reasons : first, the room has no windows, during the morning the smell coming from the bathroom is quite annoying. And the main trouble : no soundproofing at all with the room above us making our wake up very early ! It is... More

The hotel used to be a lovely old Cretan village and the owners have done a magnificent job restoring it but also providing a touch of glamour that made our stay unforgettable. All the small houses are made of stone with wood work at the details. The bed ..at least at our suite..was designed for royals!!! We loved the small... More

There was a small pool (slightly chlorinated too much), but great place to chill out and cool off. They serve great snacks and drinks and excellent food in the restaurant. Kiki and her mum... More
