This hotel was great! Spent 4 nights here of our 2 week Greece trip. Right next to the ocean!! They dont have a beach due to the rocky nature of the area but have created a nice deck with safe access to the ocean. Beautiful views, beautiful sunsets!!! The bed is ok-on the hard side, but not as bad as other hotels we stayed at. There is plenty of room in 1 king size studio. Friendly staff. We wish the receptionist took the time to tell us more about the areas around us as all of other hotels did that we stayed at after this place. Because of that, we missed out on some of the beautiful things on the west side of Crete! We did come here to relax and we accomplished that!!! There were tons of families here and it seemed like a perfect place to bring kids (kids were well behaved and that was never an issue for us without children). The restaurant at this place has good Dakos but that is about it. Service is horrible (the worst we had in all of Greece). We ate there 2 nights because of the beautiful sunsets and even when they were not busy, we had bad service. Our second dinner there we reserved a table on the deck-beauiful- but after we were sat, we remained there for 30 minutes before someone noticed us there (only noticed us because they put someone at the table near us) and then 30 minutes later were we given menus to look at. The first night there it took them 45 minutes to find our check and they gave us 3 different ones before they finally found ours. There is an Italian Restaurant across the street and a 1 minute walk away that was our 2nd favorite meal!!! Great salads, pizza and pasta!!!!!
