Hotel is very cosy and perfect for couples. It is not far from the beach and the bus stop to Heraklion is on the other side of the hotel. Staff is friendly and manager Maria is a blessing to the soul-she fulfilled all our desires in no time. Barman Yanis was amazing-so patient woth our countless orders of beer! Rooms are cleaned daily and A/C is also there. Food is good and you can get several variations every evening. Hotel is keeping all regulations during pandemic. We had an amazing time!
