This was our first time to Crete. We were looking for a good value place to stay that was safe and fun for the kids. After much searching we found this hotel Mike and thought the reviews were fantastic.
The stay itself certainly lived up to reviews that we had read. It is a lovely family run business with Manos running the pool bar and Sophia running the restaurant.
The day we were due to fly I had an email from Manos checking our flight details so that he could make sure he was looking out for us. On arrival (it was late 2am) we put the cases in the room and went downstairs to get a bottle of wine so that we could relax on the balcony - Manos gave us this and some water as a complimentary drink to welcome us - a really nice touch.
The next day we wandered up to the hotel (we were staying in the appartments a few minutes down the road) for breakfast - Sophia straight away knew which room we were in and checked that we were happy with everything.
From then on everything from the pool, lunches at the pool bar and dinner at the restaurant was fantastic. We have 2 young children who made friends with Sophia's daughter Freida - Sophia has a table set up at the front of the restaurant where the young kids can paint, draw, play games - it is fantastic and makes for a lovely relaxed evening meal!
As a rule on holiday we like to try new places to eat, and we did do some of this over the 2 weeks, but we ended up spending the majority of our nights at Mike's restaurant as the food was great quality with fantastic service.
As you can tell we loved the holiday, and will definitely be back some day! The personal service is what really makes the difference at this place!
