Great upgrade renovations of Superior Rooms to De-luxe rooms for 2014 is something to be desired. Having stayed at this hotel before the change is really inspiring. The hotel has really gone to town in making the rooms into 4 star plus. I understand more rooms are being upgraded this winter ready for the 2015 season. We have already booked... More

This hotel was great about a 15 minute walk from malia centre but loads of bars just outside. It was right on the beach with its own private beach. You do have to pay for sun loungers :-( we just put our towels on the sand. Food was good, buffet style and always something different they really work hard on... More

Except a few small things like we haven't been told that we have to pay for air condition and for a fridge. Everything was very good. Swimming pool was placed around 70 meters from a beach. Separate loungers for hotel residents, without occasional sellers.

...for all the usual reasons, and maybe a few less comment able ones. This is a well managed enterprise. The managers know what their guests want I.e. they know their audience, and they know how to deliver. The resort was built a few decades ago, but you wouldn't know it, since the owners have clearly ploughed back considerable capital to... More

The hotel is wonderful! This is the ideal place for vacation with children. We stayed in two rooms’ superior apartment with the sea view. The apartment was over our expectations! The staff is very friendly and helpful! I would very much recommend the hotel to the families with children. Although there is no children entertainment, but it is possible for... More

Congratulations to Kostas and his staff for making an excellent holiday for my wife and myself and sister and brother in law. A family run hotel treating their guests as part of their family. Nothing too much or nothing too small. Food excellent served by waiters and waitress wanting you to receive the best service. Rooms cleaned daily by friendly... More
