Worst aperolspritz ever
Aug 2021 • Couples
We had stopped by to finish our lunch (which was fine by the way) and share a couple of drinks. Unfortunately after trying 2 times we and apparently they gave up to receive/provide appropriate Aperolspritz.
They just simply didn't understand what does it mean to have bubbles in the drink. What made it even worst is the attitude which was obnoxious and cynical at the same time.
Sorry to waste such a good location especially at times when all clients should be appreciated.

It can be a lot better with just a little effort

Good: swimming pool is great, comfortable sunbeds and gazebos, drinks are good, staff is polite. Great location with pool and beach, lots of parking available.
Not so good: the food is below average, toilets need a refurb badly and there’s no music.

Not worth a penny
Aug 2021 • Couples
Wannabe Beachclub with NO music!!! Extremly pricey for no service. Waiters came once in about 4 hours. Food sucked. Toilettes are disgusting and dirty. The slide isnt working, in the pool where the slide leads is no water lol - in the highseason. Beachway is broken - I hurted my feet. Pooledges are extremely dirty. Do yourself a favor and do not go there. Waste of money!!!
A whole lot of children which isnt normal for real Beachclubs.

nice but pricy beach bar, not wow at all.

👁️ Palms and turquoise sea💙
🖐️ 🤨Slow service, very hot sand♨️, stones in the water-bring rocky-sand-shoes
🚽😧 Toilets are recommendable only in the morning, when not visited by other people
💰 Low cost 15 Euro set of sunbeds option and luxury 40-55 Euro double beds, gazebos etc. Food is self served for low cost.
👍There is an offer for all personas on the beach and at the pool- family, couples, groups, celebrators, etc. Low cost prices include water and towels, which u may not get if u don't insist
❌Water slides are not in operation- great disappointment for the kids
👂 Good music by a DJ, from time to time African style- lovely, not heard at the beach
👅 Food- both snacks and restaurant- tasty, the best from all tried options at other beach bars
🍹 Cocktails are average with ready made additions for time saving purposes
In general- nice but pricy beach bar, not wow at all.

It so wants to be cool, but….

Very wannabe beach club, the beach is pretty gravelly, the pool is ok. Sun beds are quite comfortable. Lunch was ok but the whole thing isn’t glamorous or cool, you’re better off at a local beach with a nice taverna

A polished turd.
Jul 2021 • Family
The cabana was amazing value for money. €85 for 7 of us, 4 beds and a sofa area + Prosecco, fruit and water. The pools were really nice too and the bar area.
It’s just such a shame that with a few changes this place could easily be 5*.
Problems include; terrible slow service, very bad watered down alcoholic drinks, no food served past 6pm and the most disgusting toilets we encountered in the whole of Greece.
Urgh. So annoying when places have such great potential but don’t just change the small things that make the big difference.

A must visit place
Jun 2021 • Couples
Very pleasent beach club, with great staff making sure your stay is as pleasent as possible. Food and drinks are pricy, but if you go for wine by the bottle it is fair prices they become more fair …

A must visit place, when you are tired of beaches and want to relax to good music

Don't bother
Jul 2021 • Couples
We gave this beach a go based on the website's slick look. It does not deliver what it says. It is also way more tired than than the pictures portray. The bathroom are filthy, dark, majority of lights don't work so you're in darkness (doesn't take a genius to change a bulb or many bulbs in this instance). The staff are alright, just not a switched on service. We ordered food from the beach guy who omitted to inform us that we would need to go to the bar to pay and pick up the food. We therefore were waiting for ages for something that was never going to come. The beach menu is somewhat basic and doesn't offer much greek choice so we reluctantly ordered the ever boring club sandwich. It is to date the worst club sandwich we have ever had, soggy bread, with some coleslaw inside for some strange reason. They charge €15 for beach sunbeds, which in itself is not outrageous by European standards but it is also not exactly the most luxurious beach club you'll find. The beach area is nice and spacious, sunbeds are comfortable. That's about the only nice thing I have to say. You will find far better beach clubs such as Cabana Beach, East of Chania and they don't charge for beds if you order drinks or food and food is way better there. Or try a more rustic experience on one of the south coast beaches for clear blue water in secluded coves.

AVOID at all costs!
Jul 2021
Don’t let the professional photos fool you! This place is a dump. Filthy bathrooms, no toilet paper, paper towels or hand soap, no lights in any but one of the women’s stalls. A room with open door on the steps down to the showers and toilet looked like it had been open for years with broken supplies, leaves, dirt piled up. The pool had tons of bugs and dirt in it. When we were taken to our 100 euro cabana, we had to pick up trash that was all around it rather than look at it all day. The bar area physically, has never been finished with old raw chipboard as facade. When I complained with some strength to the manager about the conditions of the property, he told me that I had to understand it was their first day open since COVID. I told him that was certainly no excuse for the horrid conditions, that they had all year to clean it up and shouldn’t have opened if they weren’t ready. He continued to defend and argue and I told him that I was sorry, not only was it just pain unacceptable but that I just spent 10 days at Stella Island and kind of had a standard to hold up against this. He told me, “then go back to Stella Island”! About 15 mins later he came to us all humble and apologetic and agreed it was not good and gave us an upgrade on the Prosecco we were supposed to get and some free food. BUT, a few hours later I went to the bathroom/shower again and the only thing that had been done is a jug of soap was put on the counter and rolls of toilet paper were placed on top of the dispensers. Used dirty TP on the floor now because no one there to empty the cans. The ONLY thing good about this place was the music. AVOID!!!

Beach club day
Sep 2020
We had great day at Baja. We hired the canopies which worked out approx 30 euro each between 6 but you got a bottle of water and prosecco provided, as well a plate of fruit. There were also cheaper sun bed options available. The pool area was very busy so if you are not a fan of this I would suggest getting beds toward the back near the beach like we did. Food was great and well priced. Good music playing. Only downside was toilets didnt feel the cleanest and most of them didnt lock.
