Booked this holiday through Olympic Holidays. After a last minute flight change by the tour operator we arrived late at night (no food left out for us sadly) and our holiday began. At first we weren't very impressed especially after reading many reviews about food being left in your room no matter how late you arrived. So sadly the first night we went to bed hungry and tired. In the morning however the full beauty of the place revealed itself and in a better frame of mind we realised that we had chosen a lovely hotel. To be fair to the staff they seemed a little surprised when we arrived so assume that the tour operator hadn't told them of the last minute changes. The hotel covers quite an area and is more like a small village with two/three storey accommodation dotted around. We were at the top of a very steep slope overlooking the outdoor entertainment area and a beautiful view of the sea. So first tip if you have trouble walking make sure you tell your booking agent. We booked the all inclusive option and wasn't disappointed. With two fussy teenagers and myself a vegetarian we still found plenty to eat and have to say the cakes/desserts are really too nice. The location of the hotel is a little bit of a distance from anywhere so we hired a car. We also took the bus trip into Rethymnon (you can purchase your tickets in the shop on site) and the bus stop is only across the road from the hotel. All in all we had a lovely time thanks to all the staff at the hotel who work really hard, are very friendly and keep the hotel clean and tidy. Also have to mention the Animation Team who manage to entertain all ages and always look happy.
