The hotel lies about 25 minutes drive from Heraklion, It does lie beneath the airport flight path but the planes are not particularly or disruptive. The facilities at the hotel are good, with the more expensive rooms having access to private pools. Of the two main pools, the B pool is much nicer than the A pool, even though the... More

I really wish I had taken into account more of the negative reviews for this resort prior to booking it - if I can help any potential guests with my feedback that's what it's for, not recriminations. We booked a discounted rate through Secret Escapes, and if we had paid the full price of almost £3k for this week's holiday,... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks at this hotel. Initial impressions were very good, lovely grounds and settings, excellent staff and our room was spacious but in places a little tired ( mainly in the bathroom) but clean. We did feel that the pillows were very uncomfortable but that could be said for many hotels. The toiletries, robes and... More

We stayed at the hotel for the first week of September. The service and attention to detail was 5* the staff were so friendly, they could not do enough for us. We had emailed ahead and requested an upgrade and we were delighted with the sea view room they made available for us and on our wedding anniversary they gave... More

Now sitting in the reception area waiting to be picked up to go home - we have had a splendid stay @ this very nice Hotel. We stayed in a VIP bungalow with direct access to our own shared pool - although use was for 8/10 rooms - most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. The only... More

We were looking for the perfect hotel and pretty much found it in this hotel. We wanted something special for our 25th wedding anniversary and booked a swim up suite which was just amazing. I think this is the first holiday I've been on where I relaxed instantly. Food: We had the dine around option for food which allows you... More

This was a hotel that was booked at the last minute so the fact that it was still available for the dates we wanted left us thinking maybe it wasn't a good 5 star however it was excellent. I have never been to a hotel that is as clean. The hotel grounds were unbelievably well manicured to the point that... More

30/8/16-13/9/16 Settle in, you'll be here a while.... Upon our late arrival to the hotel we were greeted by some very friendly faces at reception, had a fuss-free check-in and were then driven by buggy to our digs for the fortnight. Room 856 (bungalow terrace) was the perfect location overlooking the Kalypso Bar, one of the main pools and, being... More

Hi, my wife and I stayed here for 10 nights all inclusive September 2016 for our honeymoon.

Read the review on this hotel just before our holidays and got the same "upgrade" treatment - to the room with semi-private pool. I don't think it was any upgrade, just to make us feel better. There are several such pools in the hotel. Arrived at 9 pm, as we missed the dinner time they said we will have complimentary... More
