A car is therefore very useful.We were on an all in package but there was only a limited variation of drinks and... More

Hello, we stayed in this hotel for my last trip to Crete. I remember a poor quality of hotel, no hot water, always the same menu-no bad eggs, the alcohol drunk! lack of staff, absolutely not suitable for children, the beach there are only concrete blocks, the pool and 'dirty and full of drunks at all hours! not recommend

I stayed in the Blue Star Hotel on June 2012. I must admit I was most amazed. The service, the location, the facilities, the sea view & twin pool, the food... Everything was beyond my expectations. My good impression begun by the moment I arrived. The girl at the reception desk was helpful, organized and personable. The room was clean;... More
