We booked a quiet executive room and found ourselves overlooking the pool on the top floor in a spacious room with a small balcony. Everything was comfortable; a kettle was provided on request, as was an electric adaptor. Service was always very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was highly varied, including Cretan specialities that changed every morning. My favourite custard pies luckily came up twice in our week! There were three different timings on the boiled eggs, plus fried eggs and other variations. Fresh fruit, pastries, cereals were also in abundance. We had dinner twice in the hotel. It was more expensive than prices prevailing in town, especially for the wine, but the food was beautifully served and tasty. Appetizer portions were on the small side, main courses were sufficient. Grilled vegetables made a wonderful appetizer. We liked the location of the hotel about 1 km away from the center--it meant we got to walk off some of that breakfast each morning! We would happily return to this hotel if we were staying in Heraklion again.
