We went two weeks in August (2015). Very nice hotel with really friendly people all of them trying to make this the best holiday ever. Nearest town is called Sisi, about 30 minutes walk from the hotel. It's a lovely small town with a port and the view in the evening is amazing. Nothing to complain about the food and... More

The service was impeccable. All the hotel staff were excellent. The cleanliness was going on twice a day. The room was almost in front of the beach. The room did not seem new, but it was stylish. I suggest to visit this hotel and enjoy the beach, the water sports, activities for children and teenagers and the great food.

The hotel is good, with good quality of food for an all-inclusive restaurant, and most of the staff is very friendly. There are though several points that certainly need improvement. Firstly, the quality of paper glasses is awful, if you do not drink the water in 5 minutes then it tastes like paper, i.e. It dissolves. I believe this cannot... More

This is a wonderful hotel, we were traelling as a couple and there were a lot of families, normally i get bothered by too many kids but here you have plenty of privacy. Everything is included but beware-the drinks are very very strong and drinking free cocktails by the beach all day can tempt you not to even leave the... More

Excellent choice for family vacations. The food was great, both in terms of quality and variety. You should also try the 'a-la-carte restaurant for its service and recipes.The staff was very friendly and highly professional. The entertainment team was fantastic.

less than a km away as the crows fly from the third minoan palatial site of Malia, this Grecotel is situated in a natural bay protected by an islet, and it is surrounded by nature. Perfect for a family with kids or a relaxing holiday, it's still a drive of few minutes away from historical and natural wonders. One of... More
