We love Greece, but had never been to Crete before and we weren't disappointed. This hotel was wonderful, with friendly staff and excellent facilities. It was very central, with plenty to see and do nearby, and we enjoyed some excellent sightseeing too.The food was lovely, with too much choice! The room was comfortable with excellent air con. All in all... More

To be clear, I've not been on an all inclusive holiday before, and it really isn't (sorry wasn't) my thing - I like to try local produce and get in amongst the local vibe. I also had nightmares before going that it would be super cheesy and you would be fighting for dinner. I have to eat my words. This... More

Picked primarily because of its location and rating. well within anyone's walking distance to the town centre. The coach passed, and stopped off at, many hotels along the way but our hotel had the best location by far. The Hotel overlooks the beach with spectacular views from the rooms facing the front. There is a private section for each hotel... More

I would just like to say it is difficult to judge the hotel as it was end of season and it was closing the day we left. However that's what I need to judge it on and as such it wasn't great. Parts of the hotel closed, no entertainment, bar shut, restaurant shut. Staff carried on and had great service,... More

The hotel was excellent, situated in an ideal location,food was very good, staff were friendly. beach facilities were good. But I was disgusted by Thomsons taking advantage of the poor facilities of Heraklion airport, by offering the service of bypassing the long queues for a charge of £40 per person, talk about money grabbing !!!!

We spent a week here in late October we had a double seaview room on the 6th floor which was a side sea view. We were upgraded to Mythica guests which was lovely as there were so many complimentary extras all of which we enjoyed. Strictly speaking we should have had a deluxe double full sea view but when we... More
