We had a fantastic stay at this hotel and would strongly recommend it. It is right on a very long stretch of sandy beach with amazing views. The hotel is modern, clean and a super design. All the fittings are good quality including the sun loungers and chairs. Rooms are very nice, most overlook the pool and a few face the sea.
The restaurant is buffet style and you have a lovely view of the sea if you sit outside. We ate in the hotel every night and it is only 10E for a fine selection of food including soup, salads, main courses, desserts and an ice cream bar.
It is a relatively small hotel, which promoted a friendly feel. The staff were all fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. It attracts a cosmopolitan mix of guests from all countries and most spoke excellent English. Many of the guests are regular visitors, which is always a good sign.
Right outside the hotel is a bus stop, supermarket and a good range of tavernas (the best tavernas are one street back from the main drag). The local busses are air-conditioned coaches and we found this the best way to travel. We usually hire a car on holiday but did not need one here. We went to Chania (1.6 E) which has a pretty venetian harbour, Elafonisi beach (17E return) which we would highly recommend for its crystal clear turquoise water and Kissamos port (10E return) where we took a boat trip to Gramvousa island and Balos beach for the day (22E). All the busses stop outside the hotel.
If you are looking for a relaxing beach holiday in a superb friendly hotel….then this is for you.
