This hotel is used as a resort by Jet Tours. The hotel itself comprises many small buildings (ground floor + 1). I stayed in an obviously very recently refurbished room which was very nice, with separate rooms for parents and children and a very nice shower, a TV in each room (though we didn't watch Tv during our stay) and...

Hotel has 5* - I would rank this hotel at max 3* Why? 1. The hotel has entertainment team speaking only in FRENCH - if you do not speak French you will not understand NOTHING. I asked several Times so that they speak English... ZERO reaction.... because 70%of guests are eldery French people. 2. There is no GYM, no Sauna... More

Great place to rest and enjoy Crete. Peaceful place with amazing food, great pools, nice beach and lovely staff. Car rental is available and not expensive. The place feels remote but is very close to the city center with car. The only disadvantage is that there is no decent spa.

Spent two weeks with my family in one of the newly built bungalows on the 'outskirts' of the hotel. The rooms were modestly furnished but it was more a case of elegant minimalism rather than cheap blandness. Everything including the surroundings and pool areas was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The food was varied and plentiful with frequent afternoon extras... More

We (2 adults, 2 children) have just returned from Crete having spent one excellent "all inclusive" week at the Thomas Cook Village Hotel at Ostria Beach near Ierapetra. After enduring our extended flight itinerary from Lyon to Heraklion (via Nantes.!!) we arrived wearily at the hotel in the wee small hours of Sunday morning to be greeted to an inviting... More

The hotel occupies a large area with swimming pools next to the beach. Excellent food chef comes at lunch and dinner to check with all right. Delicious food, very excellent service, everything we asked for we got. In... More

We've spent one week in this hotel in June. While the hotel from the outside resembles Greek town, the inside doesn't live up to promise. The rooms are old-fashioned and furniture worn, definitely not deserving 4 stars. There is no kettle inside the room. Majority of the food is bland and the breakfasts are really poor with scrambled eggs made... More

Great family vacation, yet can be also great for couples and friend. it is not a noisy village, yet more quiet and relaxed. Food is great and versatile, from Greek to french, all in high quality and great presentation. Special nights (Galla, Greek) are great atmosphere. The animation team helps a lot and has a long list of activities, such... More
