Found the hotel to be nice and exceptionally friendly, very clean and in great location with fab views over Elounda Bay. Didn't use the hotel restaurant or bar, but the breakfast gave a good choice, if not fab quality. Buffet breakfast of cold (cheeses, hams, tinned fruit, yoghurt) & hot (usual attempt at 'full English', toast) plus cakes & drinks. Room design means they're not huge, with a strangely shaped bathroom, but you do get a fridge, hair dryer & tv. Free wi-fi also. From what we could see all rooms have a balcony. Air-con is charged extra, 6 euros a day & safety deposit box a couple of euros a day extra on top. We choose this mainly for its location, close enough to the centre without being in the middle, which is exactly what it is. Lovely to walk into town along the waterfront. As already mentioned, you are not dropped off right outside the hotel as the coach has no access so you have to walk a couple of hundred yards with your case, worth baring in mind. Also mentioned is the hotel being strangely noisy as if the walls are really thin, the people above us playing musical chairs every morning didn't help!!! The resort is one of the friendliest we have been to but drinking anything other than local beer and wine is expensive.
