This hotel is perfect for a week of relaxing in the sun. Can not fault the hotel, the views and weather were fantastic. We paid £460 for 1 week including flights from Edinburgh -which, after staying here, I found to be a fantastic price and more than value-for-money. Pools: Happily the hotel has 3 (beautiful) pools - 2 of which... More

My wife and I stayed in room 218 for a week 05/06 and found this hotel to be just as advertised, beautiful views, from both the pools and from our balcony. Hotel is very clean and the staff are the best I have encountered in any hotel I have stayed in. They couldn't be more courteous and attentive, wanting to... More

I was very excited to go to this hotel after viewing the website. Beware, I am sure there are rooms on the complex that look like the pictures on the website but our was certainly not one of them. I have had better 3 star rooms in Spain. The main pool was 100 steps from our room and the main... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Staff were so friendly. Especially Giannis and Emmanuela at the main bar! Recommend for sure. Rooms clean, spa is great, view is absolutely incredible. I would have paid double just for the view.

On the 4th of June, 2015, my girlfriend and I have decided to go on vacation at Crete. Two weeks before the stay we have called the hotel to ask some questions and to check that our reservation has arrived and that there is no issues in our order. The staff who answered were very patient on the phone. The... More

The hotel has lovely staff and good sized clean rooms with balconies overlooking the sea. There are two main pools, one for families and and a quiet pool perfect for relaxing in a more peaceful setting. There are a lot of steps so not ideal for anyone with mobility problems. The food is okay, there's plenty of it and a... More

The resort was a very pleasant surprise for us. We stayed from 5 to 12 June 2015. Reception - the first impression was a little confusing as we arrived very late at night and the receptionist seemed too tired to give us all the information we needed. We never met him again, though, and the ladies who work there are... More
