We stayed here in July this year. I'll start with the good stuff, sorry thing. The room itself was nice with good views. That's where it ends. The rest of the experience is a bad one! Its all inclusive buffet restaurant is no better than a 3 star hotel. Then there are other restaurants you can go to, but you... More

It has taken me a long time to write this review having stayed here in September. We booked this as a last minute holiday for a much needed break. There is still very little positive I can say about this hotel. It lacks any kind of atmosphere in my opinion. The "beach area" was a little jetty with a small... More

Beware! This is definitely a couples hotel! We were a party of 4 female friends and we were made to constantly feel ' the odd ones out'! Despite emailing and phoning the hotel and travel company advising them that we were 4 friends wanting 2 TWIN rooms and assured we would have TWIN rooms we arrived to double beds! The... More

We had for a long time fancied crete as a holiday destination and looked long and hard for a resort that suited us. At check in we were upgraded to a prestige room, which was large and bright with modern floral fabrics and a huge shared terrace. The facilities were average, a tiny TV (with limited English speaking channels) a... More

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of October and it was everything and more that we had hoped for. The hotel was spotless, not at all stuffy yet everything was just as it should be for a five star hotel. The food was great with an amazing choice. We especially enjoyed the fresh fruit and freshly squeezed orange... More

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel special. We arrived after midnight and were welcomed with a glass of champagne, then found delicious platters of food waiting in our room. The hotel is in a beautiful location and is designed to look like a hillside village, with steps and sloping paths leading through the grounds. It may... More

We booked this hotel on the following: Tripadvisor recommendations, the fact it had tennis courts, a sauna and it was on the water. We didn't realize that the most of the guests would be with tour groups. Thus, if you were not, you felt a little left out. It was almost like the hotel just assumed everyone was with a... More

Having read so many good reviews of this hotel we were confident that we were going to enjoy our stay. Most of what we read was accurate and we found the whole experience exceeded our expectations. Some tips were valid and others not so, but generally they enhanced our stay. I'll start with the small "niggles" and get those out... More

Silent, romantic Hotel with best Service and comfort and a great view to the sea. The employees are very friendly and professional. The Hotel restaurant is excellent, there are two others to choice. We booked half board - unfortunately are the drinks then a little bit expensive.

Went here with the ideal of having a laid back holiday with good service and good food thrown in. Hotel delivered on all accounts. For a change we went all inclusive and although not a cheap option, reckon that it was worth it. Food in the self service restaurant was excellent and it was nice to come in at lunch... More
