The hotel is realy nice, for a standard 4 star hotel in Crete. Good food if you go all inclusive, nice pool and the staf is nice as well. Very close to the beach, sandy beach..... but here you have to be very carefull. The beach is public, like almost everywere in crete.... and the lifeguards are not well prepared.... More

A good place to stay, in front of nice sandy beach. Room was spacey with balcony to the west. We enjoyed wonderful sunsets. There was not that must entertainment any more in September. Buffet meals had daily varieties in main courses, and tasted good. We stayed there with a group and had a pleasant time.

Stayed 7 days at this hotel early Sept. 2012, hotel was nice. Room was clean and comfortable with new furniture, with flat screen TV! Far enough away from the nightlife not to bother you, but also close enough for you to jump on a local bus and get to Hersonsinos which is 15 minutes away and very lively if you... More

We have had a 'sea view' room, but just between our balcony and sea was an animation place, so each evening we had loud perfomace in place.

I loved everything about this hotel its swimming pool, restaurant and of course lovely sandy beach). The staff were really helpful and friendly! Location is so convenient as we could catch a bus to explore the island. Our room was cleaned everyday. We had side sea view so could enjoy very beautiful sunset). October,2011

Well … maybe not the most luxurious place to go but Crete is a beautiful place … It’s a nice hotel, clean and with the view straight to the beach (or at least this is how my room was). Yes, maybe if you want to have something fancy you need to look further more but if you just want to... More
