Just come back from 10 nights here. Beautiful hotel- very friendly staff-very clean. We went with our 2 grown up children and we all had a relaxing and stress-free holiday. We always got a sun bed with no problem and spent some time at the quiet pool near the bungalows. The beach is on the doorstep and is clean, with plenty of sunbeds. We all enjoyed the food, although we did feel that the vegetarian items could be labelled as we found sometimes that it was not obvious and sometimes we accidentally took food that contained meat. The Cretan section of the restaurant was a lovely touch and we always tried things from there. We tried both the Italian Restaurant and the Taverna as a change from restaurant meals and enjoyed both. The only problem in the taverna is that is no vegetarian option, but the really lovely waitress soon came up with a solution so everyone was happy. As someone else mentioned the portions at the taverna are huge!!! We were unable to finish anything!
The entertainment staff work really hard and there is no pressure to join in if you don't want to.
Our only disappointment on the holiday and this is no fault of the hotel is that the trips we went on were not very good value for money, and did not stick to the advertised programmes. The guide was very poor and unfriendly and unfortunately we had the same one on the trip to Spinalonga and Knossos. If you go to Knossos it is easier to get a taxi and buy a guide book! Best value is the land train- but again it did not follow the advertised route!
We had a really wonderful holiday but if you are the sort of British person who complains about foreigners and foreign food in the hotel this would not suit you, as most of the time we were the only British guests. Personally I have no problem with this and certainly young people have no problem mixing at all.
All in all a hotel to return to. Shame the airport is so chaotic though!!!
