Just got back from here last night after a weeks all inclusive holiday. If you are somebody who will complain about plastic cups by the pool...don't come. If you are somebody who cares mostly about the colours in the room and the material of shower curtains...don't come. Other than those issues which people sometimes mention (which I personally don't care... More

A beautiful setting, with very friendly multi-lingual staff. The grounds are pretty, and the sea views from the restaurant, bar and swimming pool are lovely. Pleasure to eat the range of Greek specialties, and to find cocktails for all-inclusive freshly made. Outstanding value for money. Not the place if you want burgers, pizza and hot-dogs or nightclubbing (thank goodness!). Evening... More

Lovely family feel hotel. All staff are friendly and courteous and nothing is too much trouble. The Maitre D was especially nice. Food from the buffet was varied enough during our 6 night stay and was of excellent quality. Dimitri's oven baked (roast) pork with sauce (gravy) was amazing. The A La Carte was special and the Cretan white wine... More

Magnificent hotel on the seaside, best food ever, excellent service from staff, highly recommended!!! Equipped with a swimming pool for babies and a swimming pool for adults, for those who do not love to swim in the sea which resides just in front of the hotel. We really enjoyed these vacations and will most probably go back!

The bungalow with garden view was a disappointment as it looked totally different from the site. Yet, the garden and sea views from the bar and restaurant are terrific. The staff does all to please and help, but animation is too loud and imposing. Lying in a beach chair next to the pool you do not need screaming guys wearing... More

A travel agent who did not know our preferences booked us into this hotel for more than a week. It's the kind of place that would be best for families with young children, or on a budget, as there are places to swim, a beach, activities, an eating hall- so no need to go elsewhere. But the feeling is kind... More
