“Wonderful service, good facilities, nicely designed hotel”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Our stay at the domes had a great start. Due to our flight we were only scheduled to arrive around 23:00. We were told we could still have dinner, it turned out they kept one of the restaurants open longer for us, the beach side restaurant and the food was great (try the fresh fish!)
The reception at the hotel was always very friendly, and ready to help out.
We liked our room a lot, it was very spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated. Upon arrival there was complementary fruit and wine.
The resort did not feel like a big resort, this was due to the smart design. In April the gardens were stunning!
The facilities look great, due to the time of the year the pools were too cold, but the spa was excellent.
The breakfast buffet had a good selection. As the domes is a child friendly resort indeed there are lot of children running around, but as a couple we quite enjoyed this (and the staff were ready to offer us a table at the more quiet patio). The only improvement I would suggest is to have more fresh fruit at the breakfast buffet.
We explored the towns in the area, finding lots of restaurants and interesting sites, very easy to do with a rental car.
In all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider coming back.
Many thanks to the staff for a great stay.

This hotel really is excellent and I'd be happy to recommend it. The setting is beautiful with wonderful views across the bay (make sure you go for a sea view room) and the staff are simply first rate. Nothing is too much trouble and they work very hard to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel is very well set up for children of all ages and we were very impressed with the childcare. What is more, it's also very flexible in that you can pick and choose your mornings / afternoons that suit you. There's plenty to do at the hotel including waterskiing or hiring a small speed boat to do a cruise of the bay (highly recommended!) and the beach is very nice and private. A lovely hotel and it is a class above other kid friendly options out there.

When we arrived at Domes we were immediately greeted by extremely friendly and helpful Staff, who took our luggage inside. The receptionist was also very nice and while we were checking we were invited to sit on a terrace with some delicious Cocktails. We stayed in a beautiful Villa with our own lovely pool for a week. The service was great, as was the food (amazing kids buffet). The beach was very nice and, as we went in October, the water was still lovely and warm.
All in all one of the best holidays ever. :))

We travelled to this lovely hotel last October and stayed for one week. We decided to take a late autumn break and found this hotel to be the perfect place to go to relax. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel most welcome. We were greeted by Gallina who was delightful and most caring and attentive throughout our stay. All the staff, without exception were wonderful and went about their daily tasks in a very friendly yet professional way - nothing was ever too much trouble for any of them.

The hotel is extremely comfortable and the building, rooms and surrounding gardens are very well cared for and tended to.

The food was excellent and both at breakfast and during dinner we were entertained by the very talented pianist. This was very relaxing.

There were many little "treats" which added to our stay. Champagne on arrival. Fruit and wine in our room and canapes and champagne in our room the night before our departure - little things, I know, but all add up to a lovely holiday.

Thank you everyone !!

As everyone else has already mentioned this hotel is amazing.
My jaw dropped from the moment we arrived. It's design is beautiful and the accommodation luxurious.
The hotel staff cannot do enough for you, you cannot fail to be impressed. All staff were incredibly friendly and attentive and couldn't do more for us. Special mention to Marena for whom nothing was too much trouble.
Food served at both breakfast and dinner was fantastic with great choices. We could not fault this hotel, yes the drinks are expensive but they always are in 5 star hotels.
There were lots of nice touches, presents when you leave and complimentary water each day…..
We will definitely return!

We came for our honeymoon in late October, and were struck right away with the beauty of Domes! We rented a car to drive from the airport and took a wrong turn trying to get there so the drive was a bit longer than expected. When we finally arrived around 10pm the staff was very helpful and courteous. The honeymoon suite was AMAZING, our own little bungalow with rose petals on the bed and in the giant jacuzzi tub. We also had our own outdoor mini-pool and a balcony overlooking the water. Every morning we would have breakfast sent to our room and enjoyed it in bath robes in our balcony! As part of the honeymoon package we had the "Thermal Experience" in the amazing spa at Domes. It was a series of steam rooms and showers and we came back completely relaxed and peaceful. The community pool was beautiful as well. I cannot say enough good things about this place, HIGHLY recommend!

Room Tip: gotta have a balcony!

Early October, wonderful weather, the beach and sea were so inviting we really didn't use our secluded pool with the suite. The food was exceptionally good with a lot of local produce. We thought the staff had a good balance of being very helpful without being intrusive. The views over Spinalonga were lovely and it was a worthwhile boat trip to visit. There weren't too many children on the beach they seemed to be having a good time elsewhere. Our room was decorated in a quirky style and had a Moorish feel to it. It isn't a very big hotel so we went out by Taxi a few times to try other restaurants but ended up enjoying the hotel food more (a rare event) a good experience overall and we both would like to go back next year.

Room Tip: The rooms at the lower end of the hotel were more convenient
