By booking our stay on Crete we trusted (!and trapped!) the representative hotel website offering elite vacation. We believed, booked and arrived. Arriving at the hotel, we were very surprised to find what we didn’t want to find…’elite holidays’ was exposed as a bold statement: The same area locates three blocks of different price categories, but all one design.

Overview: This was my 4th experience in this Hotel. Unfortunately, there are some significant aspects required for the urgent action to take place compared to the experience in previous years. As last time, we booked Bronze Suite for the period from mid-July to early August in 2014. Note: this is a review to update on the changes in the Hotel.... More

We stayed there in September and though I had been there on a conference many years ago, the resort has totally changed and was totally renovated although the place itself has kept its cretan charm. We spent most of our time in their beautiful Taverna by the sea which was heavenly! The sea was very warm, the food idyllic, and... More

The location of the hotel is perfect for the best vacation. A good time to visit would be right around the end of summer because it is the one of the few places which doesn't have dangerous waves making it unable to swim. The beach is by far the worst amenity of the hotel especially if you prefer sandy beaches,... More

We are currently staying at the Ruby red and it definitely isn't a 5 star hotel! The room is average- the bathroom smells of mold (there are no vents) and it made me want to throw up every time I entered the room. We asked to move to a better building and upgrading to a different room- willing to pay... More
