Perched on a rocky peninsular, this hotel has the best views ever. It is surrouned on 3 sides by water with a labyrinth of little pathways guiding you to clifftop and beachside sunbathing areas.
I don't know how to described the location of the hotel, except "its fabulous!"
Great food. Great staff. Great restaurant and, a hotel that happily provides for vegetarians without having to ask.
We have just got back from this hotel and would go back tomorrow.
It overlooks the main town and at 5pm each evening you can sit and watch the cruise ships arrive.
Be aware though, that this hotel is not for the unfit. It does sit on a hilltop and if you want to walk down to the beach, it is a steep slope.
The hotel sits about 40 minutes walk from the main town. It is walkable and we did it 4 times in the week, there and back. Very tiring if hot!
If you don't want to walk, get reception to call you a cab for a little over 5 euro. You can also use the local bus service but they only run about once an hour.
One warning. The main pool is very deep, even in the shallow area its more than 4 foot deep
To spread your wings further afield to perhaps Elounde, a taxi will cost you 10 euro.
So in all, this is a fab hotel and is worth every penny. You can if you want, dine at the sister hotel, the Minos beach if arranged with reception.
