Terrible, un-edible expensive food at hotel's restaurants. Rather slow service at the beach bars. Dreadful funicular lift with no proper air-con,... More

Like in the brochure - we had a villa mit private pool. Amazing view over the bay and to the island Spinalonga.Liked the facilities like the lounge bar in the evening. Blue Door Restaurant had great food and mega friendly service. I hope I am able to be back soon.
