A very late review, as we stayed for a week in May 2012. Me and my partner both of us in our 20's, enjoyed our holiday here. It was late may so was just at the beggining of the summer season. Weather was good, warm but not overly hot so we both enjoyed the early summer weather. The hotel pool was great but chilly, but really nice way to keep refreshed from sunbathing. Bar staff were very hospitital and friendly, reception staff were just the typical 'reception staff' , however the resturant manager and his team were FAB! so sad we had to leave as the resturant manager was very friendly and we made our holiday as he welcomed us in every evening and morning, making a conversation every time.
We stayed in a sea view villa, so we had a small garden to ourselves aswell which was so nice. The minor downside to our stay was bed was hard, air condiioning didnt work and bathroom was dated HOWEVER none of this mattered as we had a great base and the room did everything we wanted it to even tho it was dated. We are a couple that making a complaint would have actually runied our holiday so nothing was too bad so left it go and enjoyed just being on holiday :)
The hotel is 5/10 minute walk away from the town, which includes bar/clubs but also small shops and a minimarket which we brought bread ect to make sandwhiches for our days out as we were half board.
Even tho its a short walk away from the town and the next town over is Malia, we never heard any loud music or interrupting drunks. You would never know the next town over is the hot spot for young people to party,party and party!
Great place to stay, beaches not far from this hotel, although we went on a few boat trips to more scenic and small beaches without the crowds.
