First visited this hotel in 2005 and was really looking forward to returning as we had fond memories of it. Have to say, our second visit wasn't anywhere as good as our first. We had two identical rooms which were good. The restaurants and bars were as good as we remembered but it didn't have the staff attentiveness that we...

Visited on a 4 day break for a "girls catch up" and had a wonderful break. Restaurants fantastic - both food and service. We especially loved the Mediterranean restaurant because the meals were excellent and loved the entertainment. Rooms, spa , bars and beach area all equally good. Also visited Spinalonga which was so interesting.

We traveled as a family at the end of the season, i.e. mid-October. We stayed in the Ambassador suite, which (as described) is a bungalow-like building with 2 bathrooms, separate living and sleeping area, an outdoor garden space and (in our case) direct view of the sea and one of the small private beaches. The entire hotel complex probably dates...
