Very good place to escape the crowds and to have high quality and silent vacation. Suites very well to those, who do not require to be in the middle of action and to live close to loud bars and restaurants.
Rooms are spacious, good looking and well equipped, not worn out. The staff is really friendly and you can always get the help if you need it.
All rooms, restaurant, bar area face to excellent views towards mountains, valley and Bali village, which is located on the cliffs over the sea shore.
Filion is not located directly on the beach, but this is compensated by the excellent and really pleasant hotel amenities as well as convenient every hour transfer to hotel's beach area, which has a good restaurant with the amazing view over the bay form the top of the cliff.
If you take a lunch in a hotel bar (which actually is a huge terrace over the valley), you will enjoy how fast the food is served and you will be fully satisfied about the price and quality of meal. We liked that the breakfast and dinner food choices were varied and not repeated daily. Prices for wine didn't bite and some of white wines were really good.
We liked the overal location of hotel, because Bali is in middle of island and if you rent a car, you will be able to enjoy other excellent beaches of Crete.
Overall this is really a good place to visit for retreat and in case we visit the Crete once more, I suppose we will choose the Filion again.
