We wanted somewhere to get away from our busy lives, no noisy clubs,masses of people,somewhere with peace and quiet, and a bit of indulgence. We were met by the manager and his friendly staff on our evening arrival,bags were taken to our room... More

I stayed here with my husband at the beginning of June for 1 week. The hotel is very well run, clean, comfortable, peaceful and relaxing - for adults only, no children allowed, just the occasional cat! We had a suite comprising of bedroom, bathroom and lounge. Our patio had chairs, a table and 2 sunbeds. This led on to a... More

This is a superbly run hotel in a fantastic location. We travelled with Thomson on a 14 night package in June. The majority of guests were German, with a sprinkling of other nationalities. The hotel appears to be owned by Blue GR, who also own Candia Park locally, but is branded under the 'Sensimar' umbrella - a German marque for... More

We stayed here in May having booked a suite and were not disappointed. Staff were welcoming, the suite consisted of lounge and bedroom each with a balcony overlooking pool and sea views. The food was excellent and we ate outside every mealtime enjoying beautiful views. We enjoyed the small beach and used the sun beds dotted around rather than those... More

This hotel is amazing. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. The rooms and public areas are spotless. No matter how late we arrived at the pool there was always sunbeds available. The WiFi is better in public areas but sporadic in bedroom. No big issue for us though. The views from our room were absolutely stunning. I have been... More

This was a last minute booking and we were overall pleased with the hotel but we have stayed in 4* hotels in Crete that were on a par if not better. The location is beautiful but the hotel grounds require you to be able to cope with all the steps and slopes. The bed was the most uncomfortable we have... More
