Great room, friendly staff and food as expected. Nothing to be disappointed in at all, we had a good time and will be happy to return. Sasha the photographer was excellent, we opted into getting a few pro photographs taken whilst there. Roula at the beach bar and Remi at the evening bar were excellent.

I went with a girlfriend looking for a relaxing week with good food and wine. We had a lovely week and would be happy to go again, but with lower expectations, which means overall I thought it quite expensive for what it was. Thankfully we'd booked a garden bungalow room (which was fine) with a beach view so we had... More

When we arrived the room we were in had a broken balcony door, but a quick call to reception and we were moved! We stayed in a sea view suite with access to private pool. The room was nice and the view amazing There are a lot of steps on the resort which made it a bit of a hike... More

Beautiful Hotel on slope down to sea. Rooms set as in a Greek Village in many blocks. Around 50 steps and 200 yds from Main building to sea. Beach has no sand, but is all grit. 2 of the 4 Restaurants are restricted to Villas around private pools. Worth taking all inc as drinks are expensive. Excellent service.

Arrived late on 4th August at Knossos Palace with my wife and 15 year old daughter. Swift check in and was taken to the room on a caddy.

The hotel is rated 4/5 star. Meal times were "interesting!" My lady friend and I watched with surprise as some of the guests filled their rucksacks and hand bags with food in full view of the staff, with no one saying anything to them. At dinner some of the guests arrived in swim shorts and vests and if the head... More
