2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2009

We spent 12 days in this hotel and we wished we leave after the 1rst night. It is located next to the beach but clubs are even closer, so if you enjoy sleeping at night you can forget this hotel. The conditions are ok for 2 stars, still, we paied for a double bed room and we received a single person room. We discovered after our friends arrived, so you can guess how happy we were. About the breakfast, sometimes the coffe was good and the bread fresh.

hi,
as i said one of my best trip we had nothing to complain of!
the site is very nice,romantic and clean (room and village)
the personal was very nice regarding the reception, the rstaurant,the bar and the animation team....

the site:
for once not this big building full of room towards the sea,just little houses 2 floors maximum all over the garden.full of flowers and palms.
the gardens is incredibly cured the colors of the flowers are amazing,the grass is cut every second day and not burn (amazing with such a sun)everything is very clean.an amazing job perfectly done.
the rooms:
sweet and praticles with air condition,tv,fridge and space for your clothes.
the only thing is the bathroom which is not the most beautifull one a bit small but as always very clean.
little terrasse with sun the all afternoon.

reception:
always very kind and helpfull,would speak also at least good english and italian...

the restaurant:
the buffet was always very good and always different choices ready for every taste!!!
if something was over it would be replace in the next minute,and always fresh.
the waitress were doing a very good job preparing the tables and taking away your finished plates.

the bar(pool/inside):
always very friendly and usually fast (depends who serve you)not lots of choice in the cocktails but what do you want it's an all inclusive service...anyway was always good!
they even serve somthing snack between the meals time like cakes and sandwichs...

the animation team:
always very nice and very friendly,doing lot's of diferrent activities during the day from10h to 18h and then a perfomances in an amphitheater.would make participate everyone could speak different languages (italian,english,german,french,russian ect...)
the performance in the evening was always entertaining and the public would also participate during the show...
i have to say that for only 5 people they do a very good job!


the beach:
nothing special the sand is not very nice the water is but full of stone so you really need plastic shoes to go a bit futher,a bit of algue but not everywhere,but you can go to chrissis island and there you will find one of the most amazing beach and water ever!!definitly worth to go.(this island is at the south so you need 1h30 with bus to go to the other side of creta and 45min of boat to the island).

the end:
well as i said everythimng was very nice just for the italian people try to not go with the "phone and go" we got just troubles and got no help and no understanding for this tour operator!this is an advice!!!!

The hotel is situated 5m from the beach and 1minute walk from the main promenade.
Clean and very friendly staff. Don't expect too much - but it's clean and the triple rooms are quite OK. we had reservation for a 2 bedded room, but the shower wasn't working so they gave us a 3 bedded room, no extra charge.
Ask for a room with sea view - it's super, big balcony to enjoy a drink after beach.
four young couples mainly.
