The hotel is just on the outskirts of the town of Elounda and is in a beautiful position overlooking the bay towards Elounda Island. We were fortunate enough to be given a sea view room of which I am thankful. The rooms were a little on the basic side but were perfectly comfortable. The safe cost 3Euros per day which I would say is an essential for passports etc and air con is a little more at 6Euros per day. We stayed from May 22nd June 5th. The first week we didnt need aircon but toward the end of the second week it was a must.
We stayed half board, and the food was fine, pretty much as epected when a restaurant is buffet style. We sat outside in the morning for breakfast but stayed in doors of an evening as we were not sure if we were allowed to venture outside as the outside area becomes the Blue Sea restaurant from lunch time for external paying custom. It didnt spoil our stay though.
The pool was good and offered a welcomed dip when it became too hot! Just a note though, I fell when walking round the pool in bare feet. It had become quite greasy under foot. No matter, I just shook it off.
The staff were very friendly, especially Aanka and Beglo in the restaurant and Monika up in the skybar. The hotel is family run and has a lovely down to earth feel about it.
We would definately stay again and would recommend it to couples. Beautiful location and very good value for money!
