We stayed at the hotel for two weeks at the beginning of June this year. on an all inclusive basis. The hotel, situated on the main road, a short walk away from the main town was a perfect location for us. The lovely beach just across the road with more than an adequate number of good sunbeds was again a... More

We booked half board for two weeks in May 2015, weather during our stay was great apart fro two days when we had thunder storms, Our room was on the third floor where we had a side view of the sea. The room had plenty of space for clothes, and was a good size, did enjoy the toweling dressing gown... More

We booked for 11 nights at this hotel and were very disappointed. The size of the sunbathing areas very small as were the pools. The brochure makes them look really big and spacious so if you like the pool rather than the beach then this hotel is not for you. For a superior room it didn't have any drawer space.... More

Once again Vassilis, the head waiter of the a la carte restaurant and his staff made us so welcome. The food here is fantastic as is the food in the main restaurant. We love this... More

Initial first impressions on entering the hotel was WOW the entrance lobby and reception are superb. Our room 424 had an amazing view of the sea but was a little dated and could do with upgrading. Rusty chairs on balcony marked my shorts and stain hasn't come out. Blanket on bed didn't look great on first impression. The maid for... More

We had a very nice holiday here. There were many good aspects and we chose it primarily because of its proximity to gorgeous Rethymnon town, an easy walk of 20 minutes. The beach was kept spotless throughout our stay and the free sunloungers were a real bonus. They were essential because of the small pools at the hotel which we... More
