Dear Tuijax, Thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Crete and for taking the time to write this comment! What gives us great pleasure and satisfaction is positive people and comments which of course we share with everybody. Kolymbari is indeed a beautiful area to explore with different aspects and views, as it combines sea and mountain. We are more than happy to read that you enjoyed your lovely suite, our Cretan and buffet breakfast. We try very hard in order to offer to our guests a variety and quality of food products. Thank you also for your kind words regarding our pool bar, our pool areas and the Italian restaurant. Regarding your comment on our activities, we are glad to read that your son enjoyed mini soccer activity because our priority is not just adults but “little” guests too. Furthermore, we are very pleased to read so nice words about our concierge staff which is dedicated and passionate. We place great value on your opinion and we hope to welcome you again during your next visit to Greece! Yours sincerely, Konstantina Ais Administration Executive

Dear Natasha, Thank you for staying with us and for sharing with us your holiday feedback! We are very pleased to read that you enjoyed our premises and our food. Here at Avra Imperial we consider all guests comments to be of utmost importance. Regarding your comment on noisy room, after your initial complaint we gave you immediately another room. Actually, you have shown three rooms in order to choose the most appropriate for you and finally you chose a room which was according to your expectation and satisfaction as you have informed us. Furthermore, we have to inform you that Avra Imperial is a hotel for families and couples, so we do our utmost for both of them. Our hotel is well designed and there are many chill out zones within the hotel where all guests can relax with or without the presence of children. For instance, there are many a la carte restaurants where guests can have a perfect meal. To be more precise, we have our Italian restaurant “Al Fresco”, our Asian restaurant “Blue Dong”, our Cretan restaurant “Xatheri”etc. In addition, there is a cozy lounge bar “Le bar” where you can enjoy magic music nights. Our Apivita spa area is also outstanding where guests can truly relax and choose a unique treatment. Regarding your comment on our reception staff, let me assure you that they always try to give the best impression to our guests and to fulfill their wishes. We always receive exceptional comments on our reception staff and we would not accept your personal unfair and disrespect comments about it. Our staff is dedicated, very friendly and tries to offer to our guests Greek hospitality. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have felt regarding the issue of late check out, due to lack of communication between the cleaning lady who missed the correct room number. Hopefully, we will have the chance to welcome you back in the future in order, not only to meet, but if possible to exceed your expectations! Yours sincerely, Konstantina Ais Administration Executive
