Excellent facilities, welcoming staff and exceptionally clean everywhere. The food was fresh, with excellent choices for everyone. The bar serves amazing cocktails that are definitely a cut above the usual holiday cocktail. I would especially recommend the wild berry jar!! A family run business where everyone clearly works hard and takes real pride in making sure you have a great... More

We stayed here from 5th till 12th June inclusive, based on previous TA reviews, and we didn't regret it. It's in a quiet village (Gouves) between Heraklion and Malia, set about 500m back from the coast - so it's relatively peaceful. That said, it is on the flight path for planes coming into Heraklion, by day, which didn't bother us,... More

Perfect place to stay. Such good value. The place is spotless, staff are incredibly friendly. Rooms lovely with nice balconies. Mythos served in frozen glasses at the pool bar. Really close to seafront. Only issue is that the beds are very hard.

Stayed there since 26.08.11 to 09.09.2011. Overall impression: the hotel is clean and cosy. It consists of 5-6 two-storeyed dwellings, which are located in the nice garden. The hotel has a view at the sea. The majority of guests are from France. The guests are people of a middle age, however you can meet there young couples and old ones.... More

This hotel is very clean inside and out. Staff are excellent. Lovely pool. Set in beautiful gardens. The room we had was large and spotless and had a large balcony. Where the hotel fails is with the food. Hot dishes were always cold or luke warm. Most dishes were over cooked and the meat or fish was dry. Reasonable selection... More

We stayed at this hotel in June 2008 for 10 days. Rooms: the rooms are nice and clean but ours was loud. There were construction works right under our window but only for the first 2 or 3 days so we didn't switch rooms. Also, there are many mosquitos in Greece so you can't let the window open during the... More
