Wow! Firstly the staff: literally made our stay as perfect as it could be, they couldn’t do enough. Extremely friendly and you bond a family like relationship with them. Definitely would come back just for this. The hotel itself is stunning- modern, the fact it’s adults only is definitely a plus. The food is absolutely scrumptious. Walking location to shops/restaurants and the beach is literally a step out the hotel. If you want a romantic break away with your partner this is the place for you.

We booked our trip to Crete knowing that there would be precautions at the hotel due to covid, however our expectations were exceeded! All staff consistently wore PPE throughout our 1 week stay, as well as visitors being required to wear masks around parts of the hotel and an online system to reduce contact also. We felt extremely safe the whole trip, we cannot fault them on the way they handled the situation. We had an amazing week an Insula Alba, with a great range of food and drinks available on the all inclusive menu. As well as this, the staff are incredible and so friendly - always happy to help with anything. A few that stood out to us were Manos and Zoe at the pool bar during the day - great service from them both and lovely to chat to, made our daytimes even better! At the pool bar in the evening Kostas was a great host, made us laugh a lot and very enjoyable company whilst having a drink. Melipo was also lovely and was perfect during our dinner we booked in the Culinarium (definitely recommend booking this during your stay, great experience and included once on all inclusive) and on Friday night behind the bar - lots of fun! Lastly Louisa was lovely, and looked after us during all of our meal times. We also wanted to mention the entertainment reps Sam and Kat were both lovely and super friendly! They hosted a range of activities/themed nights throughout the week, with no pressure to join in but the option was nice. Both lovely to chat to, we really enjoyed meeting them during our stay. Overall great hotel, amazing range of cocktails (not all on all inclusive but at a good reduced rate) and variety of food everyday. Lovely relaxed atmosphere round the pool all day, and lots of nice beds to choose from! Thank you to all staff for making this the best trip possible during these times, we definitely hope to visit again in the future when things are more normal too. Wishing you all the best!

We stayed at the hotel for a week having chosen here after having 2 other bookings with TUI cancelled (our initial booking was to Parga which TUI decided not to fly to and then to Kefalonia where the chosen hotel decided to close before choosing Crete). In all of this, I have to say, TUI have done a great job keeping us informed of changes and providing us with a variety of options. The hotel is clean and modern and has a relaxed feel to it. The pool area is comfortable and well maintained and we never had an issue getting a sun-bed in our chosen area. The staff at the reception, the restaurant and the pool bar were all excellent and have adapted well to the “new normal” that Covid has brought. That said I do think,at times, one additional staff member at the pool bar would have improved the wait times. We were at the hotel on an all inclusive basis but ate out a couple of nights in the village of Analipsi where you will find a good selection of local tavernas. I would also recommend heading up to Old Hersonissos for dinner in the town square. Food at the Insular Blue was generally good at breakfast, lunch and dinner but my preference is definitely for an a la carte rather than buffet style restaurant. The all inclusive is also quite limited if cocktails are your thing - beer, wines and spirits have enough variety though. This was my first visit to Crete and everyone we came in to contact with was helpful and pleasant but I think there are other areas of Greece I would like to visit before returning.
