All-inclusive cocktails were not so excellent but not poor quality and we enjoyed cocktail Blue Star Special. (Cześć Ria i Elena!) Desserts were the best. Location was excellent for us. We... More

Hotel is really nice! With enough clean territory and friendly staff. Our room was not so big but it was clean and conformable to stay in. The most perfect was the food - everything is so testy and fresh. The only small minus is the beach with the stones but could be managed with special booths. The best place to... More

Bad points- its a long way out of town with nothing much to do except swim and sunbathe- the entertainment suddenly stopped whilst we were there. A car is therefore very useful.We were on an all in package but there was only a limited variation of drinks and... More

Hello, we stayed in this hotel for my last trip to Crete. I remember a poor quality of hotel, no hot water, always the same menu-no bad eggs, the alcohol drunk! lack of staff, absolutely not suitable for children, the beach there are only concrete blocks, the pool and 'dirty and full of drunks at all hours! not recommend

Management response:

In response to this review, it has to be noticed that this review refers to a stay during 2011. Meanwhile many things have changed and one of these, is the management team, although the situation mentioned on this review is far enough from truth. As anyone could notice, 2012 clients' reviews have nothing to do with the situation described on... More
