We booked this resort for a week while we were in Crete for a friends wedding. We booked a standard room which was perfect for us. It was clean, lovely interior design and a really comfortable massive bed!
The resort is really well designed on a cliff face with different levels of pools, bars and restaurants. The private beach is small but all you need and the clear turquiose water is great for snorkling.
The staff at reception, bars and especially the main restaurant are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble and the food in the main restaurant (buffet) is of a good standard and there is ample choice.
Only things to note are that this is very much a couples hotel, if you're not there as part of a couple you will soon be very aware of all the couples around you! If you are in a couple this would make a really romantic retreat.
The resort is slightly out of town so you can't just walk to the nearest bar or restaurant in the evening. We found ourselves mostly using the bars at the resort which proved to be very expensive.
Over all it was a great experience and I'd definetley go back, perhaps only as a couple next time though!
