Stayed here first two weeks of July and had a great time. I wasn't worried at all about the hotel having read the reviews before we left, but it still came as a wee bit of a shock how far we were from the main resort . However, it really is only a 10 to 15 min walk to the centre. It's a bit dark coming back to the hotel at night, but we never felt uncomfortable or threatened. The hotel itself is lovely - not too big, a beautifully kept pool with plenty of sunloungers for all (although people still get up through the night to book theirs - unbelievable!!!!) and friendly, helpful staff . The apartment was really nice with a balcony, which was lovely to sit out on if you wanted a change from the "pool scene". However, the lack of storage space was a bit of a problem - 2 VERY small drawers in the bedroom and one built in cupboard. Not really enough when there's three of you and you are staying for a fortnight. I also agree with another reviewer about the noise at night - if you have a poolside room you have to listen to a "singer" one night and a bingo caller another - this goes on until after 11.30 which can be really annoying. So the advice is, if you want peace and quiet in the evening - get a room away from the pool area. However, overall this hotel gets a big thumbs up from us - we really enjoyed our stay here and would certainly recommend it to anyone travelling to Crete.
