From the moment we made contact with Nikos in relation to staying in the hotel, the service was superb. We travelled in April, before the school holidays - it is a very child/family friendly place and that wasn't something we necessarily wanted, going purely for relaxation and rest. There were a few families there with children but all remarkably well behaved and actually quite precocious and entertaining - as opposed to being a noisy army running riot everywhere!
The hotel is located outside the city of Chania easily reached by taxi or bus. In the area, I thought the restaurant in the hotel was the best. We didn't wander far.
Our room was on the ground floor, overlooking the sea and the pool. Air conditioning, wifi, kitchen, FANTASTIC shower in the bathroom with gorgeous complimentary toiletries. We had a small patio area and the entire complex was beautifully maintained - gardens, amazing cacti, restaurant area, public toilets - everything.
The hotel has sunloungers on the beach as well - and no charge either!
Cannot recommend this hotel and the staff enough - it was a superb relaxing break and I will go back - although I will make sure it's out of (school holiday) season. Thanks to all the staff there - just brilliant.
