Are you looking for a top hotel in a perfect location? Then you have to look somewhere else.
What you get here is a simple hotel. Very simple.
Rooms - clean, but be aware of the so-called garden view, it is in fact a view into the neighboring apartments. Upgrade to sea view costs 10 euros per day, we were happy to pay.
Food - nothing special, sometimes very good, but the feeling is that it is always the same. After 3 or 4 days, it gets boring to see and eat the same stuff. Breakfast was my highlight, deserts were good also.
If you go on a daily trip, do not count on the lunch bag you get from the hotel - water and juice are ok, but I would advise against the chicken and the sandwiches. And do not dare to comeback earlier and eat for lunch, they will not let you; or they take away your next meal.
We went out to eat a few times and that was really great. Not far, there is a great restaurant - Veranda - they have amazing sea food (and much more).
Drinks - we had All Inclusive, meaning drinks from 11 am to 11 pm - soft drinks, juices, beer, wine, raki, ouzo, coffee and tea. Nothing fancy.
Location - ok. Very close to one small beach, where sunbeds cost 3 euros per day. There are a lot of other good beaches not far away. And if you rent a car, you can drive to some other great ones. Do it! Do not just stay on the beach in front of the hotel.
Personnel - most of them are nice, but sometimes can become unfriendly. Especially the ladies at the reception. The staff in the restaurant and at the bar are really friendly.
All in all, I know for sure that I will not come back to this hotel. Crete is an amazing place, I really enjoyed it here, will definitely return to see the rest (10 days weren't enough), but will look for different places to stay. Maybe also in Cherssonissos, but certainly not at the Evelyn Beach.
