We have spent 1 week in this resort located directly in the middle of Stalis, Crete. The hotel is very close to the main road that has a lot of shopping and restaurants to offer. So it will never be boring. Rooms are very good, nothing to complain at all. Room service was perfect. Even if you choose to stay... More

We were concerned that returning to this wonderful hotel might not live up to our expectations, we shouldn't have worried.....it was even better than the first visit. Staff this time seemed even more friendlier, more attentive and happier! Food was great before, now brilliant, I think there was more variety this time round and most meals included Greek specialities (why... More

This hotel is classified as 9 of 57 Speciality Resorts.I visited the number 1 in this category and I can tell you there is no comparison with that accommodation.This is a 5 star HOTEL not a block of basic apartments.I believe TripAdvisor should re-categorise this property. It is quite simply a great place to stay.Nothing negative to say about the... More

This is a fabulous hotel. Can't understand why it is not listed under Hotels on TripAdvisor. Speciality accommodation is definitely not the correct category. This is rightly a 5 star property. My only change to the hotel would be to include classic Greek dishes every night on the menu. The staff are wonderful. The location is perfect. The superior room... More

A really excellent hotel, we were very pleased with our decision to stay here. The complex was spotless, food excellent (especially considering it was all inclusive) and the gym was the best my husband had ever seen in a resort. They also had the small things covered including English Breakfast tea bags! The staff were very friendly (particularly Maria), and... More

We arrived shortly after 1am. I am not sure why but we didn't anticipate the most welcome of greetings however, the receptionist was indeed very friendly and concierge helped us with luggage to the room. We booked a suite and requested sight of the sea and a balcony with afternoon sunshine. Room 607 provided both of these. The room layout... More

Just returned from a very relaxing week's stay here - in short it was excellent. It started well when we arrived early, and after having no sleep due to a 4am flight I dreaded having to wait a while until a room became available, but we were met with ice tea and chilled face towels to freshen up, then taken...
