We went to this hotel with mixed reviews but with an open mind, when we arrived after delayed flights and delayed travel we were dreading it. We were in a garden room old Crete style I loved it, ground floor big terrace.
The grounds were tidy and hotel clean, we did have stormy weather at the start but finally after 3 days it was beautiful.
Food was a good variety of salads nice dishes on offer for food, only criticism it could have been hotter, but didn't ruin it for myself or hubby. People complained about food on reviews and I don't know why, all I can say you must be really fussy.
Staff, well every member we encountered were great, polite and friendly, Vasalis, you are wonderful, lovely mature, and great to chat with , Damien great to have a Brit to have a laugh with, great guy. Elvis great bar entertainer what can I say haha.
To all other staff who's names I cant remember, thank you, you guys work really hard.
Management had no problems, got me a taxi straight away when I needed one, polite and friendly.
Location great on the beach, and how can I forget the main attraction, Gianni's Bar next door to Hotel, Family run the best people in the world, amazing food, we loved the place and we are going back next year just wish it was longer than 2 weeks.
This is an honest review on my part, it may not be a perfect hotel, not many English, didn't bother us, great beach.
Only bad points is, paying for safe 35 Euros for 2 wks. Sunbeds should be free on beach but there not, but not enough beds round pools. And all inclusive finishing at 10 when entertainment starts at 9.30, come on you guys play fair at least make it until 11pm. But this did not ruin our holiday .
