One was the shower was not powerful and one of the cleaners put the shower head down which I did not like and also the beds were not comptorbale. Tony at the bar was excellent and wore 2 socks over his ears. Whenever one of my favourite songs came... More

After some confusion with tripadvisor/booking.com reservations (see my review of Aldemar Cretan Village), we ended up here and could not have been happier. I think this is the place I intended to book. This is a small property that is family owned and run. They will make you feel like family. The owner picked us up in her personal vehicle... More

I like this place becuase its not in the middle of the noise, its on top of the hill, only about 300-400 meters away from the beach. Its not the best place for people who want to be all day on the beach and who want to have everything in the next 20-30 meters... But if you are looking for... More

If you want a quite, restful, well run hotel, this is perfect. It is situated about 10 minutes walk or less from the beach. There are two supermarkets and a lovely restaurant just a few minute's away. It is family run between Connie, George and Mary who made so welcome that we felt like one of the family. Or the... More

I travelled as a family with 2 children. I contacted the hotel prior to going to enquire about the way to get there from the airport. They kindly arranged a taxi pickup who was waiting promptly with my name on a board and we arrived in about 20mins. My room was fantastic, pretty new by the looks of it. Spacious,... More

My mother and her friend went on holidays here and they only speak Russian. The only one on the property who spoke Russian was Ira. A rude and hostile woman. Not only they take money for air-conditiong from tourists (€ 47 per week) - absurd! But tried to blame some child's scribbling on a table in the room and asked... More

We stayed at this hotel June 2014, the hotel is small and is run by a family and the service feels personal, most of the staff are happy to help and willing to go that little extra. The hotel is clean and has everything you need, bar, pool etc, rooms do not come with Air-con as standard but can be... More
