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

We like a walk after dinner but there is nowhere to walk around here. First impressions were great, it's an old hotel but it has been refurbished to a... More

Location: 40 km from airport, takes 50 minutes to get there, though depending on the number of other hotels' tourists the bus takes. On our departure day it took us almost 2 (!) hours to... More
