We booked last minute and got this place 'dumped' on us by Teletext Holidays. The accommodation is in building blocks with most rooms being exactly the same. The rooms were sparse and the bathroom was in dire need of some TLC. The A/C only works with the magnetic key fob on your room key ring. Planes for the airport fly... More

Fantastic International hotel, amazing animation team made all the activities really fun, both in the daytime and evening. Lovely freshly prepared food, lots of options and beautiful fresh fruit and cakes at snack times (if you are all inclusive) Friendly staff. Amazing location right on the beach. Restaurants close by with a greater variety a 10 minute walk away. Bus... More

Pretty good value for money. We took the half board deal, even most of the visitors had all inclusive. The all inclusive is good choice if you do not plan to travel and like to drink during the day. The hotel facilities are not luxury but defiantly OK. The stuff was very friendly and the animation team always suggested good... More

This hotel contains five buildings. Not very crowdy. But rating four stars is not good.Small main restaurant, good food but not very much to try (not like in Tunisia or Egipt). Staff friendly but slow. All inclusive is not what se are used to. Free drinks only in the main building, at the pools you have to pay. Drinks are... More

Hotel is located in Gouves about 17 km from Heraklion. It's near the beach. Very nice area with pubs, shops and restaurants you can choose from especially if you like long walks on the sea front. The room was quite large, it had one large bed and a suspended bed and that was a real delight for my daughter. We... More

Room was clean, personnel very friendly, animation every night, food very fresh and taverns and bars around not overcrowded in the high season in August. Sea also very clean though preponderantly windy and with waves. Not suited for people looking for silence but very good supportable by people able to sleep with closed window if necessary to sleep from 21:00... More

We payed for all inclusive, yet when we asked for drinks most of them (including fresh fruit juices, Bailey's and cocktails whether they are child or adult cocktails) were blocked behind a pay wall. It felt like the pool area and dining room were too small to house the sheer amount of people here and just like the drinks, there... More
