My Husband, 4 year old son and I stayed at the Grand Hotel at the end of June / beginning of July on an All Inclusive basis and had a fantastic time.
We were greeted by the receptionist and told that we had been upgraded, thus spending 2 weeks staying in room 104 which was large with modern facilities. What the room lacked in privacy, it made up for in location as we were close to the amenities, most importantly being the pool bar !!
The hotel is set on a hillside with great views of the resort. We shared our time between the Fun Pool and the Main Pool which were both non stop fun and getting busy as we entered into peak season.
We really enjoyed the food in the buffet restaurant which was high standard and a good choice. Also tried the Aegean and Pizza restaurant which made a pleasant change. The staff were so friendly and helpful, they just couldn't do enough for you. My son took a particular shine to George the restaurant supervisor who must have had a sore hand after 2 weeks of " High Fives ". Whilst the majority of guests were Eastern European I found no favouritism towards them from the staff and every nationality was respectful of each other
The animation team worked hard and I enjoyed the daytime activities but the evening shows were quite corny. It would have been nice to see more variety and maybe some acts from outside of the hotel.
I was disappointed that most of the children in the Kids Club were Polish as were 2 members of staff which made communication difficult for my son. We still took him there each day but sat with him whilst he painted.
Being a keep fit fan, the Gym facilities were limited and could have done with some mats and free weights. No big deal though as made a good reason for me not to exercise and get a cocktail instead.
We were only 10 minutes walk from Stalis which is a pleasant resort, nice beach with plenty of bars and restaurants. If you fancy a change from the hotel, try Marias for a typical greek meal.
We also hired a car venturing to Spinalonga, Knossos and several resorts.
A wonderful holiday made so special by the staff and all of the friends that we made.
