We stayed there for 5 nights. It is really nice hotel and our bungalow with garden view was excellent. I can recommend to take bungalows as they are much better located than normal rooms.

We stayed here for 14 nights from 23rd July. We stayed in room 155. Our room was clean and cool. The room had been refurbished and was even better than we had anticipated. All the extras one would normally pay a local surcharge are included. The public areas too are of a high standard and it is clear that improvements... More

We were very impressed with the overall lay-out of the complex - pools, food and drink places, proximity to the beach, availability of sun beds and parasols. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room (with a sea view) was comfortable and clean.

At the very first sight, it is a huge building with squashed rooms with a tiny terrace. The hotel is composed by 4 huge 2 floored buildings (80% of the rooms) and two lines of parterre bungalows. The parterre bungalow are renewed and nice but we were staying in the buildings. The apartment blocks are very old and bad maintained,... More

We (couple 22 & 25 years old) spent the last week of August in this great hotel. It is located between Malia and Stalida. The region around the hotel is rather quiet with supermarkets, a pharmacy, car rentals,... as well a few cosy restaurants and bars very closed by. Malia, famous for its extensive nightlife, is within walking distance (or... More

I booked the hotel for my British friends. I posted a photo from the beach during sunset. I never stayed there, but I use this beach very often, and it was one reason to book the hotel for my friends which finally had a lovely stay during July without a single problem. So the review is from them, and concerning... More
