The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, bedding/towels changed every 2-3 days a bonus, onsite restaurant is excellent value with a good choice of traditional meals, pool snack bar does very basic snacks during the day.
Studio was as to be expected but very clean and well equiped and had a shower cubicle although very small bathroom. We booked a balcony and on arrival were quite shocked to be led to a studio that was not even on the ground floor it was down below in the basement .... we nick named them the dungeons. There are 4 on lower ground level and they all share a very tiny pation area which never gets any sun apart from a brief half hour at the end of the day which made drying the wet towels etc very difficult. We complained and asked to be moved but were informed the hotel was full and all the studios were on the lower level. We got used to it as it is really only somewhere to sleep but it was far from ideal. The pool area was always full with sunloungers and there was not really much space to spread out this didnt bother us as we always go to the beach.
The resort is very quiet and the beaches with sunloungers on are mucky they dont seem to clean them. There is just one road with very little there the ambrosia taverna is excellent and well worth the visit. We explored the local area and there are lots of busier places in the vacinity. We enjoyed our holiday but will not be returning especially after the horrific departure lounge at crete airport, way to busy boiling hot and distinct lack of ladies loos (hubby said the mens floor was awash).
