We are stayied at this hotel last month (October) please believe the previous reviews that it is not 5* this is are 2/3 star very basic and not what you would expect. There are much better hotels in Crete if you enjoy staying somewhere nice.
The location is isolated with lovely views but there is nowhere to go for a stroll in the evening apart from up and down the stairs Or hills to the pool and back. You could take a taxi into the village at a cost of €20 each way where there are some lnice bars and restaurants. I would also recommend a room from 500 upwards the walk up the hill would be too much for some.
The rooms are grim and basic with hard mattresses with just a sheet over it. There are no little extras you would expect from a 5* hotel, shampoo and body was is from a dispenser over the bath.
Some of the staff seemnice but there are some who are just rude.
The restaurant is free for all and noisy,and whilst there is a variety of food on offer the queues can be long and not enough waiting staff.
There is nowhere to have a quiet drink in the evening as the main bar is the only bar !
Think twice before you book this if you are looking for quality you won't find it here I promise you. The nicest meal we had was the A La Carte.
if you are looking for a cheap holiday in basic accommodation then this is the place for you.
