We stayed, me and my wife, in this hotel in September/october 2012, in a superior room with sea view. The view was amazing but the room was very small. In our room (462) the AC was not enough, it was about 27 degrees in the morning but thanks to Apostolos in the front desk we could change to room 17 with better AC but not so good view.
Overall it was a very nice hotel with a cosy buffet restaurant, nice beaches with a nice coulered water that we have not seen in Crete before and a lot of sunbeds
but Robinson dominated to much, the official language was german.
The staff in the restaurant were very nice and did their best to make breakfast and dinner a good memory.
We had read the novel about the lepra colony on Spinalonga and we wanted to go there from Plaka as in the book so early one morning we took the local bus to Plaka (1,60 Euro per person)
and then the boat over to Spinalonga. We really recommend to do it this way and early in the morning it is not so hot and you are there before the big boats from Elounda and Agios Nicolaus arrives.
We also took the local bus to Agius Nicolaus for just to see it but returnd very quickly to the sun bed in the hotel, as it was very hot.
Overall it was a nice but not 5 star because of the small superios rooms.
