The hotel itself is really lovely, rooms were clean and spacious would have benefited from more electrical sockets there were only two and quite high off the ground. There was a fridge in the room along with a sofa a big spacious balcony. We stayed half board, breakfasts were ok but the same on offer everyday, dinners were lovely always... More

We were a party of four and arrived late on Sunday 30th Aug to a warm welcome, only to be told our rooms had been 'flooded' and we would have to spend the first two nights in a sister hotel next door. Two of us were moved the next morning, at which point the hotel staff made it clear the... More

2weeks beginning of June. Room excellent,spacious and clean. Pool and bar area perfect. staff very good, attentive without being intrusive. Only downside was the food. Limited main dishes, protein poor and the cooked vegetables were terrible, appeared to be soaked in vinegar. Breakfast was either scrambled or boiled eggs, sometimes a bit ham or sausage. Plenty salad. Good points, bread... More

We booked this holiday after reading quite a few reviews on different hotels on Tripadvisor. We can say we had chosen this hotel based to a large extent on the reviews that we’d read here. We took a late flight to Heraklion so we arrived quite late at the hotel. The staff were happy and polite, even well after midnight,... More

A lovely hotel, very clean and with amazing gardens. A great pool and bar with excellent cocktails and the restaurant serves really good buffet-style meals with a great range of choices. The staff are very welcoming and it makes a perfect base for a great holiday. It's a 20 minute drive from the airport or Heraklion centre.

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
