The hotel needs a really good re furb - the professional pics on their site are probably from 15 years ago. All amenities are so old fashioned and basic. We couldn't even get an iron sent up to the room -... More

In early summer 2014 we have spent one week in this hotel, which we have chosen as being appropriate for family holidays. Unfortunately the first impression was really bad, since we were given accomodation in Crete Village and not Club Calimera, for which we have payed! After argueing for two days with the personnel and requesting our rights, we were... More

The staff were absolutely amazing. By this I thank them once again! Hotel was the anniversary of 25 years, but is completely renovated and therefore perfectly fine. After last year's holiday...

Booked this one for the kids club but entertainers spoke mainly German and some Russian. He is only 3 1/2 and did his best to join in but I felt slightly let down that... More

Just got back today very tired as what was said to be the transfer time of 1hr 30 mins turned out to be 4 hours as we picked up from all around the island before getting to the airport. The hotel itself was ok though not 5 star possibly 3/4. The setting is very nice, food good, but when it... More
