It is located at a magical place with sand dunes right below leading to a shallow water sandy beach. The location is amazing and there is not much else to do but relax. The beach is excellent for small kids since the water is shallow and sandy. Rooms are clean spacious with breathtaking views. There are bikes available with no charge for short rides around.
Tips: snorkeling on the reefs, climbing the east sand dune right before sunset, cover your skin with natural cosmetic clay (is like the one sold in cosmetic stores) that you can find on the far east side of the gulf where there is fresh water coming from the rocks, night swimming.
Negatives: the taverna is not what one would expect in Crete.. it is below average for the local standards but there are other options around. It can get very windy but this is what south Crete is like anyway..
