My wife and I honeymooned in August 2012 and were hoping for a quiet and peaceful week in comfortable surroundings. We were not disappointed. I had e mailed in advance to request a quiet room and we were allocated room 16 which was perfect. A good size room, comfortable bed, clean bathroom with a beautiful view, and 2 balconies. The included air conditioning was welcome as was the fridge to keep our water chilled. The bottle of wine and basket of fruit in arrival was also a lovely touch. The hotel itself was clean and the staff very friendly. The buffet breakfast and evening meal were always hot and well cooked but could be a bit repetitive. Veal in one form or another every evening! That said, the salad bar was always well stocked with fresh food and we only had one night the whole week when we weren't impressed with dinner. Provided you go expecting reasonable buffet standard food, you won't be disappointed. The pool area and sunbeds was kept clean and tidy despite the constant sea breeze which did help to make the heat bearable but could play havoc if you tried to read a paper! The hotel is on a hill and about 30 mins walk down a back road into elounda itself. We walked in on an evening then it was 7 euros for a taxi back. The are 2 supermarkets within 5 mins of the hotel and the local bus stop is on the main road above the hotel. All in all I would definitely return if I wanted a quiet holiday but if we took the kids I think I would want to be nearer a bit more action to keep them entertained.
