My standards have gone up so much since I have stayed at this hotel it is definitely 5 stars. The place is beautiful and is located in the perfect location looking over the sea. It has a great waterpark ,plenty of activities that the team put on for us. Shows and entertainment every night. The waiting staff were very attentive and caring always made sure we had everything we wanted. The hotel room itself was amazing ,always clean and staff always wanting to help. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you want to come to Greece. Would come back again :)

Feels like a private beach, being cleaned daily, sand beach is pleasant, water is clean but not clear (dark) water temperature is warm at afternoons.
Always use sun screener to protect your skin, wear a hat and sunglasses!

I was fortunate enough to attend a 3 day conference here , which was excellent. My wife joined me too fo an extended stay on the island.

The sea view upgrade was worthwhile, with fabulous shower room and plenty of space- we were in room 733, but those in the block below (800’s) appeared to get more of the main hotel building than beach view.

As the whole site is built on a quite steep hillside there are plenty of steps to climb throughout the day to help burn off the calories from the surprisingly good all-inclusive buffet.

Book ahead for a table in the a la carte restaurants or you might not get in.

The sand is rather dirty. Beach service non-existing. You have to carry your own towels from the rooms and can change them only once a day. Awful area.

Is a nice place to visit if you are staying in Heraklion. You can reach this place without a car (but i do not recomand it, it is more accesible if you have a car), you can take the Rethymno bus from Heraklion central bus station. From the place where the bus leaves you in Fodele village, you have to walk a bit, at first it might seem that the road goes nowhere, but you will reach it if you keep walk. The beach itself is nice, it has free sunbeds, a few close by tavernas and some nearby sea sports activities, in an up-close resort. It's a nice place, but i don't recomand it as a special trip, but is nice if you are passing by.

Looking for an unspoilt, quiet, easy to find beach? This is the one you want! We stumbled upon it by accident and it's the best accident ever. Fodele is a minute or two off the national hwy, there's parking outside Plaitis Taverna (see review for more specifics) and make your way onto the blissful sands of this glorious beach.

The beach itself is also fed by a small estuary, which is great fun to explore for kids of all ages, there are sun-beds there, some small shops for refreshments, and of course a toilet via the Taverna - treat yourself to one of their frappe's!

Best beach we found, can't wait to go back!

Everyday the beach and ocean was different. It is kind of windy and in October the sun is to the south, so always behind you, but a lovely beach with beautiful views. My son saw lot of fish when snorkeling.
