I would recommend this spa because the facials are very good... My only complaint is they try to sell you a package ( which is unnecessary ) ESP if you're just visiting. Therefore, if people are on holiday, they need to be aware of this. I just wanted to book a facial and they were quite insisted that I sign... More

Although it was the last week of the season and the weather was chilly, the hotel was warm in every sense, friendly and cozy. Comfort, nice view, great breakfast and a real state of the art thalasso spa

We spent a day here to make a bit of a change from our villa holiday in Heraklion. A fee of €40 a head buys you everything you can eat, drink and use from 9am to 6pm. Terrific value indeed. Great service from guest relations lady Vefa, two beautiful pools and a beach for sunbathing, a fabulous buffet restaurant, pool... More

While we did not stay here, I felt a short comment worth bringing up. Our TUI bus picked us up at another hotel first, and it stopped here to pick up a large group of Germans. The porters were very helpful to bring the luggage to the bus and when everyone was loaded up, they held up a very nice... More

My husband and I booked through TUI for this resort based on the reviews, and we had a really great time (about a week). The majority (perhaps every one!) of the guests is German-speaking (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) so we joked that it was almost as though we had not left Germany. This was not a problem for us, as... More

The hotel is indeed a multifunctional luxurious resort. Lots of sport facilities/wellness arangements/places to relax. The beach is beautiful. Our hotel balcony was overlooking the beach and sea. Nice location very close to Heraklion and kazanzakis airport.
