This review would be better but for two things. We made the mistake of booking half board, and the evening meals were very mediocre, served in the indoor dining area and gave no choice. We ate in once, and never again. Book bed and breakfast if you want a nice dinner. Secondly, we arrived after an horrific journey where the plane got re-routed to Chania, and endured a five hour journey by coach with no drinks available. We arrived at 2.40 in the morning, tired and dehydrated, and when we asked for a drink the man at reception told us to go and find a shop open! He did not offer us the air conditioning control, and watched us struggle with the lift doors. Eventually, after she returned to insist, he sold my daughter a bottle of water. So we survived the night. It must be said that the other staff, particularly the waiting and bar staff, were charming. The location of the hotel is beautiful.
