“talking about finding a gem of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

location 5 mins to the beach and tavern, fall out your bed/apartment, fantastic party bar, super swimming pool and a friendly family who can't do enough to help, after my fantastic experience of all that. I am at a loss to understand some of the comments that I have read.
The Bottom line is, if you want value for money, good fun, relaxing and have a family who will give good guidance and go that bit extra to make your holiday an enjoyable experience. This is what blue dreams offers, and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

We arrived very late at night - Litsa and Katherina came out and welcomed us. We were tired and hungry and nothing was too much trouble for this family - they cooked us a fabulous meal and made us feel very welcome. The prices are reasonable - and the food is excellent - never had a bad meal - and George catches most of the fresh fish. Whatever the previous reviews - believe them or not - but things are not like that here. It is a warm, lovely family led business. When we booked it, we expected the "sea views" to be by telescope - but this could not be further from the truth - you are right on the sea - 30sec walk and you can hear the sea. It is a beautiful, relaxed place with a beautiful pool,. There are exceptional tavernas within walking distance. Blue Dreams made our holiday very special. Simon & Jenny.

Room Tip: Rent a vehicle and explore the island - the most beautiful place we have ever visited - there is a s...

We have stayed with George and Litsa on many occasions, and we love them and the hospitality they provide.
Clean and quiet just what we want from our holiday.

Yes it's a bit of a trek into Rethymnon - but it is worth the effort. If you hire a car, Georgiopolous is a must! A stunning beach location.

George and Litsa are fantastic hosts and fab cooks, I have never had a bad meal with them ( we've been 5 times so far!)

I understand how people feel about paying for the extras, small family ran business don't make the money like the huge all inclusive resorts do, but they are still bound by the same rules and regulations. Remember that this is their business, it supports their family and it's only open during the summer season - we took that into account and was more than happy to pay for a fan!

As for previous comments about Litsa being nasty, we have never met anyone less nasty- ever!! If you treat people with kindness and
respect, it's how you are treated in return.

We can't wait to go back.

Travel date was late sept 2012
Weather was fine whole holiday.
Booked as package holiday

It was a cheap one week holiday and I new this area as we stayed rethmymnon area before
expectations were not high. Those low expectations were met, The owner and family are nice
I have no complaints about them. Location is POOR, rooms have tired fixtures and fittings seat
covers were awful, flaking off all over the place painted PVC i think. WC was faulty and you
heard running water all night, I could probably have fixed it but Why the hell should we!, So
All we did was Close the ill fitting toilet door. Beds were not comfy at all but all that
aside we made good use of our car out almost every evening. Days were spent by the pool sunbathing/listening to music and relaxing. 1st day at hotel and I must say I dont think
pool water quality was very good very cloudy water veiw distance under-water was terrible
it cleared though a day or so later. There is enough simple stuff at this hotel to warrant
a poor rating overall so thats what it gets Return? NO better places to sorry hope to read
that this place improves one day. I took a lot of pictures here and the owner was always
looking worried about it made me feel a bit defensive about it tbh not good impression to
give a guest it realy. Poor but did not let it ruin another fine Crete holiday.

Rock OUT For NOW

Room Tip: We Found The high floor room we were in quite all probably the same tho

Just got back from a week at Blue Dreams. Very enjoyable but beware of Litsa and her daughters who will try to sell you a half board package. Litsa says 95% upgade but we only knew of one couple who did. Plenty of excellent tavernas nearby. Dont use what you find in the fridge. There is about 5€ worth of items for which you will be charged 10€. It is supposed to be self catering but there are only 2 electric rings but no kettle(10€ extra) or toaster (extra charge). You only get 1 toilet roll. You will be hasselled into attending the bbq in Sundays for an extra 14€ per person but DONT as its dreadful! The attitude of the family will be awful if you resist their money grabbing efforts but dont let it put you off. The rooms are basic but clean and offer a value for money holiday.

We went as a family of six we were made very welcome and we had a wonderful week at the Blue Dreams. Litsa George Katrina and Natassha were fantastic hosts very warm friendly and nothing was too much effort for hem. We stayed half board we had a comfortable clean room with a fridge and supplies in on our arrival and the food was excellent. We had fun in the evenings with the quiz night karaoke and we enjoyed a traditional greek night with food wine and dancing an a fantastic BBQ. We went on day trips on safari and to the water park. A brilliant week all round and we would definitely go again. Thank you to Litsa George Katrina and Natassha lovely people xxxxx
