Beach resort which accommodates mainly foreign tourists, so if you're after something more authentically Greek I would stay in Agia Marina. The hotel offers free wifi and we booked half board which means breakfast only. Breakfast was excellent with a variety of traditional foods and other food catering for foreigners. Preference is given to full board clients with rooms with... More

Great beach, average rooms and food. Our reservation was half board dinner was less than expected, staff was helpful. We rented a car which is a good idea to reach attractions since hotel is a little bit Fare from Chania town.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for 10 days from the 31 August. There were 3 buildings in this hotel; the main building where the beach was located, another building located near the 'activities pool' and another building on the hill (which was apparently a new build 5* building) located near the relaxation pool. Having read the reviews... More

My wife and I with our two small children arrived at this hotel for what we hoped would be an amazing two weeks in Crete. At the check in desk, after presenting out booking confirmation, to our horror we were informed that our reservation had been cancelled due to the travel operator going into administration. We had paid in full... More

The hotel was just awful. We received a room in the backyard and what should have been "garden view" was in fact "neighbors view" as the only view we had was to other rooms (see my attached photos). We had half board which was a big mistake. The difference is about E13/day only for dinner - they don't even give... More

I was here with my family. The hotel has a very good location. We had a maisonette room, on the pool side. The room was big enough and very clean. The food is excellent. Everybody can find something to eat. My 15 month old baby was never hungry. In every our you can get some food. The frappe, coctails were... More

On arrival on Saturday, there was a small problem about our room but it was sorted by the manager in an excellent manner. The service, location and food is brilliant, especially the Greek breakfast. The staff are helpful above and beyond the call of duty. (A lady at reception sorted out email issues from my iPad) I would recommend 100%... More
