After researching Crete for many months online I came across this little gem! We didn't want an all singing all dancing huge complex for our summer holiday but instead somewhere stylish but still kid friendly with traditional Cretan food. We were not disappointed! definitely #1 in Agia Pelagia! Dimitri and Aspa offer the most exceptional service happy to help in... More

We booked this hotel due to the recommendations on TA as we were looking for a base in this area. On arriving at the hotel we were not disappointed the hotel has an elevated position with lovely views. We were greeted in reception and offered a drink, then shown to our rooms which was a nice touch. We were upgraded... More

The view from the room was nice too. Dmitri & Aspa were very warm & welcoming & helped us plan our days. I would definitely... More

I can definitely see why this hotel is rated no1 on TA for this area. Good points: 1. staff are very helpful and pleasant, without being OTT. 2. Pool area is outstanding with great view over the bay. Restaurant is nice, we ate every night having booked half board and enjoyed the food we were given...mostly Greek dishes, no choices,... More

The staff were outstanding, Dimitris who was running the place was unbelievably helpful and all were so pleasant. Pool, gym and facilities were really good. Location was good with fantastic outlook to the sea. (we had a car so 2 minute drive to village). Extremely good value for money. Our two daughters, 18 and 13, who are not easily satisfied,... More

They will put you up in the "ghetto house" which is the only one without a view. Otherwise the staff is very sweet. Leaving with a somewhat bitter feeling ........................................................................................

We have just returned after a week at happy cretan & had the most amazing week!!!! Relaxation, sun, good food & drinks, perfect. Upon arrival (11.30pm) we were handed a cold mythos by Dimitri which was much appreciated after a long day of travelling along with some delicious supper. We stayed in a stone suite (234) which was perfect, very... More
