We stayed at this hotel between 21 to 28 October 2014. We were very impressed when we arrived and saw sprawling hotel set in the hillside, it looked like a village. We were dropped off at reception and after checking in we were driven in a golf buggy to our rooms overlooking one of the pools and the sea. We... More

We were 3 couples + 2 small kids for three nights and never will be back. The service was just terrible. The reception staff was very unfriendly. Room cleaning - very basic, need to change towels by yourself at reception, floor remain with sand... The food was average minus. The main course was very poor. Sausages? Not a five star... More

The food variety is good althoug repeats itself all the time. The Greek theme was very nicely done more like... More

Nice food and drinks, free beer! (all inclusive) Nice pools, fun water slides! remote location, a car is a must if you wanna tour the area. Ask for a room close to the pool and lobby, the hotel is huge! We had a lot of fun at Fodele Beach & Water Park Resort...

I spent 4 nights at the hotel on the first week of September 2014 (1.9-5.9) with my spouse. We had a great time, the food was great, so were the drinks and the facilities of the hotel. I have to say that the variety of the food was incredible, even though throughout the days it repeated it self a bit,... More

Were in this resort few years ago, and impressions are very nice! My favorite zone was aqua park and beach in evening :) Nice food, polite service and essential atmosphere. The ideal place for families with children.

As invited with some good friends in Crete, I was lucky to spend some few days at this "paradise". Beautiful situated at the north coast of Crete, on a hillside, with a very nice beach just nearby. Very nice service everywhere! All meals were excellent with much variety, nice pools, you'll find everything at this hotel, also for children. A... More
