Beautiful setting in a cove amidst the background of mountains. The villas offer a private pool and vast outdoor space with a view looking out over the cove. Incredible service and the restaurants all offer great food. The buffet is a little chaotic and the stand out restaurant is above the pool. Cocktails in the contemporary bar, looking out across...

Leave your troubles (and your brain) at the front door of this superb hotel and let them take care of you for a week. That's what if felt like for me, my husband and 17 year old daughter. The views, facilities and the ambiance were fantastic but a special mention to the wonderful staff who were always super courteous and... More

Ok so the bad points: -extremely slow internet (this seems to be a widespread problem in Greece) -some confusion when ordering coffee with the staff -towels on sunbeds is essential at busy times to secure a spot And the good points: -stunning location and buildings -amazing family room - very spacious with our own plunge pool -superb buffet for both...

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at this hotel where we received the very best of service from all the friendly welcoming staff. The choice of food for breakfast and dinner was incredible and of a high standard. As the dining room became very busy during our stay, the management responded quickly by extending the opening times in... More

Booked through a Secret Escapes deal and can only say we felt we'd landed on our feet with this one!! Deluxe sea view room with private infinity pool was glorious (as long as you don't mind that the bathroom is very open plan...not for the shy!) We're usually a bit anti buffet dining and had planned to eat a la... More

Visited May 2014. Windy for two days then gorgeous weather. Spent every day on the beach and snorkelling. The hotel is stunning and it lives up to the 5 stars. The staff are all polite and very helpful. In 7 days we didn't encounter any issues whatsoever. Our room was a standard deluxe which is probably mid range for the... More

Just returned from nice week here. Lovely setting but very windy so just be prepared for that. Very clean and nice food but the service in the evening was a bit chaotic and took ages for our drinks to come. Overall had a lovely time. The spa was nice but think its a bit cheeky they charge €24 to use... More

We stayed here for a week in April 2014, (unable to choose the correct month to put on the review) the weather was still very warm and the whole of this hotel is truly 5 star. We had a villa with a private pool, it's not heated but once you are in it is fantastic and you are not overlooked.... More

I would rate this property higher if it were not for the food. We tried the buffet restaurant - mediocre and crowded and the Taverna. The latter offered expensive and mediocre versions of "Greek" food. A starter of octopus was of low quality, small - 2 pieces, and served lukewarm. Another dish - lamb burgers were small and accompanied by... More

Truly 5 star hotel with private infinity pools in a jaw-dropping setting! Attentive staff, fantastic food, highly recommend! After a late flight our private taxi transfer from Iraklion airport was very welcome. Upon arriving at the resort, check in was efficient & we were soon whizzed to our room by golf buggy. We had booked a deluxe room with individual... More
