Our 1st visit to Crete and we were a family of 7 (including mum who had walking difficulty) Stayed for 5 nights at this place after staying at the other end of the island (Koutouloufari- Sunrise Apartments) for our first 5 nights.
The good points...
Very central to everything.
The people that worked in the bar and the snack bar and the cleaners were all really nice.
Some great restaurants around and the snack bar does wonderful crepes.
The NOT so good points.
On arrival was given a great big studio for 3 of us and a tiny pokey room for the other 4 of us..View from room was 2 big air con units!!!
When we went to ask to be moved and was told no rooms left and if we cancelled we would get no money back, was told that people only sleep in their rooms on holiday so why not just stay in that room !!!!
Room was miraculously found after we said that we could not stop in that room. A room on the ground floor that was 3 times the size of the one offered initially.
Cost of air con 8 euros per night for apartment and 7 euros for a studio so 75 euros for the 5 nights in total !!! Overpriced in my opinion.
Free Wifi only in the bar and pool area not in the rooms.
Beach is dangerous as massive slippy rocks on entering NOT suitable for kids, we had a hire car and went out each day to other beaches and mountains.
Met a few people who had been told that their room had a problem to be fixed and they had to stay somewhere else for a couple of days....! I am sure this was a lie.
The west of Crete is stunning and a car is needed to see the real some beautiful places, but we would not stay here again it had no charm or atmosphere at all.
