the location was amazing, with Plakias and Damnoni beaches so close and its own wee cove its paradise. price seemed just a tad steep but for august it was to be expected for a weeks stay. breakfast was plentiful and the facilities are fantastic for a get away. really made my partners first time to Greece special.

Location is fantastic:quiet beautiful sea breeze and excellent snorkelling/scuba in clear waters. Even in August was easy enough to find some deck chairs. Reception staff all helpful+polite. Spa centre is very pleasant and relaxing. Waiting staff are, generally, not welcoming. They seem irritated to serve and are quite grumpy. I read reviews beforehand about exactly that and just assumed the... More

Great potential but not applied. The view is great, amazing, but you might as well bring a tent, or pay for a hotel ranked not mor than *** stars. Even less. The rooms are outdated (80's). The tv is the size of a shoe box, the bathroom stinks of piss. There is a kitchenette but without anything. I mean anything!... More

Be aware- the 3 pools (one big pool which is beautiful) are with salty water- a big disappointment for us.. The room size is o.k but the t.v is a small and old one.. It was funny to see it.. The bath room is with no windows.. A bit smelly.. The kitchenette is a sink and a tiny fridge.. No... More

The nature, sea view erc are excellent there but the hotel is poor maintained unfortunately !!! A child playground is in very bad shape and in general the place needs a brave upgrade to systems , clean, decorations, food quality etc. Hope next time it will be better

We went there with the belief it is 4-star hotel. We came there at about 3 in the morning and they offered us some snacks in the restaurant. The place looked terrible especially at night. The ceiling is covered with some grey cover. In the morning when we saw the place it looked much better and when you sit outside... More

This hotel is set in a very special location on the edge of the Libian sea. It is peaceful, enclosed by rocks and no doubt the best place to stay on the south coast of Crete. It is a paradise for hiking/walking. The options are numerous with organised walks by local guides, walks to local beaches, in both directions, over... More

We recently booked a last minute break at this resort and we have to say it was fantastic. This has to be the first resort I have ever been to where the experience was better than the brochure. From the moment we checked in all our cares and stress were left behind. The various places to spread out and sunbathe... More

Only one thing stops this getting 5 stars - the thump of the disco every night. But SO many positives more than make up for this - the pools, the food, the narrow inlet from the sea - clear and deep - once a hiding place for pirates. The spa was great - the massage excellent. All the staff were... More
