This was our first time in Crete. Our school breaks up early so we avoided the normal school holiday crowds, which made a difference as the hotel got noticeable busier towards the end of our holiday (July 8th to July 22nd). ROOMS: So let's be honest, it's a 4-star hotel, not a 5-star. This is mainly because the rooms are... More

Having researched this hotel on Trip Advisor, we expected it to be good, and we were not disappointed. Arriving at the hotel at 0130 hours, our check-in was very quick, and we were transported to our sea view bungalow by golf buggy. Reception staff were always friendly during our holiday ( a great first impression for the hotel ). Our... More

When it is in Crete! we had a garden bungalow which was spacious with a shaded patio, table and chairs BUT there was an upstairs. I usually ask for a top floor being a light sleeper but I didn't ask this time ... The grounds are well laid out. There's plenty of space and therefore it is a peaceful location.... More

We have selected vip room with sea view but the day we arrived ours was not ready so we were offered another vip room without view just for first night and for the rest of our stay to have Villa which we agreed on. For 5* hotel and vip room we would expect much better equipment. Transfers inside the resort... More
