My girlfriend and I took a break after a tough 2020 in September 2020. It was the first time we’ve been on a TUI magic life break (we have previously been on TUI holidays but not this specific package) and it was brilliant. The hotel was clean, the facilities were fantastic and the food was great. A top choice of foods and even though the staff would serve us the food we wante, they were patient and always happy to help. The bar staff were great but there was one stand out individual. Yiannis, who works on the outside pool bar, is the main man! He served us drink after drink and always interesting to talk to. His ability to speak German, English and Greek fluently and switch between as needed was impressive and he worked very hard. The sports team there were also great, we had great classes at Spin (indoor cycling), aqua Spin and Bodyweight Conditioning. It was a relaxing holiday on the lovely island of Crete. I would absolutely go back!

We’ve had an amazing holiday and we were so happy to be able to travel to this beautiful island during this strange period. The covid adaptions were well done, staff wearing masks and all activities adapted to the rules. Some highlights: we rented a car and went to a waterfall. At the resort we really enjoyed the archery classes and especially Erol from the entertainment team really made us feel welcome. Then, my girlfriend and I had a special romantic private dinner at the beach, this was perfectly arranged by Candia Maris. Nikos was our host during the dinner and we had a lot of fun, enjoyed the amazing food that was served (the buffet is great, but this was definately fine dining!!) and it was just very special. For the rest: room was great, very close to the beach. Only thing I didn’t really like the music nearby the pool in the morning, there was quite some noice from the indoor cycling classes) Overall: I would really like to go back!

Our first time to Crete and this was a great introduction. Our ground floor room overlooked the relax pool and was quiet during the day but did suffer from noise until midnight from the amphitheatre. A pleasant room, the bathroom lacked a fan and steamed up badly when showering. The bed was too soft for us and the TV was also small which didn't matter much as the only English channel was CNN. The beach had plenty of beds(sand very soft) and it was rocky underfoot when entering the sea. All 3 outdoor pools were well maintained and suitably cold. We found the covid 19 measures taken very good. All staff wore masks and gloves ,plates and all food was served individually so guests only touched their own utensils. Food was varied and plentiful with always something to take your fancy. Wednesday night is an outdoor barbecue. We visited both speciality restaurants where the service and food were excellent. A sensible queuing system operated at the bars and again the staff were good. We booked 2 trips through the tui rep , to Santorini (full day) and a half day to Rethymno, both good value. This hotel is close to Heraklion and its many shops and is only a short hop from the airport. Mainly frequented by Germans we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it if you are looking for a peaceful adults only holiday.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your positive review and for letting us host you to our place. Your opinion and personal experience is very important to us as it will help us to understand better our guest's needs and expectations. We are very pleased that you admired our hotel services, the Gastronomy, and your room. Thank you for appreciating the efforts that are made by our team during the Covid-19 crisis. It would have been nice if you had spoken to us on the spot and so that we would have had the chance to eliminate the reason for your dissatisfaction regarding the bathroom fan and the noise at you room. Allow us to inform you that our hotel has a central ventilation which operates 24 hours. We are very happy to transfer your kind words to all our staff and we hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you again in the future. Until then, we wish you all the best.

I regretfully finished my package of spa treatments yesterday. The girls have looked after me so well! Maria and Hara are a credit to the spa, they both have magic hands! The spa is well run, reception staff are polite and the rooms have a relaxing ambience. All the necessary regulations are adhered to - the treatment tables were laid in front of me so I knew that the towels were freshly laundered and the single use tables coverings etc were exactly that - new and unused. I wouldn't hesotate to go back.
