Very disappointing. We just got back from our vacation in Greece. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights at the Poseidon villa. Accommodations are okay. The bathrooms are not very well planned as the doors placement was not thought through very carefully. They should also fix their loose hardware and maybe add hooks for the bathrobes as there is no place to hang them. But these are just minor things. The major negative aspect of the resort is the tiny peace of sand they have for the beach. We traveled with a 16-months-old baby and found it quite unpleasant to literally argue for a place under the umbrella by the water. A lot of the guests 'book' their beach chairs early in the morning with the towels. This practice should not be allowed. Most importantly, the tiny beach should be reserved for kids as the other chairs are all on the cliff with no access to the water. Paying $900 for one night at the villa and arguing for a beach chair under the shade just does not go together... I believe there are 6 or 7 umbrellas on the beach and the resort accommodates hundreds of people. So if you are traveling with kids, do not bother unless you are willing to get up early and 'reserve' your spot by the water.
In short, the hotel is too expensive for what it is. Go to Elounda instead.
