We needed a relaxing holiday. We got moer than we expected. We booked this hotel with a last minute deal of Neckerman. Neckerman gave this hotel 3.5 stars which I think it's fair. We paid EUR 1,080 for two of us during 3-10 Sep. This price included Transavia flights, transfer to/from the hotel and 7 nights with all inclusive. On the same day we checked the price of Transavia flight to Crete on the same day was EUR 495 for each !! So we almost got the hotel for free. The first room we got, the toilet just kept flushing. When we told the reception, she changed the room for us right away. The room is simple and very clean. It is old but everything works. My room has a fresh paint. They tried to keep the room in good condition at their best ability. I can see from different bathroom tiles. We got the room in the main building, next to the Star beach. When we closed the doors we could not hear the music from Star beach.There was only one night (Monday night) that they had music until 11:30 pm. But we arrived the room just a few minutes before they stopped. We were in the room only in the night because we were busy enjoyed doing stuff outside. There were trees between us and Star beach. We could not see them and they could not see us.The pillows were really thin. The matras is hard. The foods were very good. There were mainly Crete local foods which we like very much. We are not someone who went to Greece and expected Chinese or Indian foods. There were fish, mixed seafood, lamb, beef, pork and chicken, potato and rice cooked in different way everday. There were pasta with meat saus everyday. There are 4-5 kinds of starndard deserts like chocolate mouse. castard, panna cotta, ice cream, etc everyday. At least 1 or 2 local Cretan deserts. There was the same Greece salad everyday. The feta cheese is really tasty. I went sight seeing one day and had to buy my own lunch. I paid about EUR 40 for two for a fragtion of the lunch I got from the hotel, The drinks were local brands as indicated in the brochure. I found nothing wrong with that. I like to try local things. They also provided Belgium beers. But I preferred local one. The bars were open till 11 pm. The cake served at 4 pm was not good. The hotel is direct in front of the sea. One of the best location of the whole village. The beach is in front of the hotel. In front of the hotel is a bit rocky but on the right side is a sand beach. If you have teen or yong children, they will love it as it 's next to the Star beach. There 2 big pools in front of the sea. We did not check the 3rd one because we found the two in front of the beach are great. There are shops, restuarants and bars in front of the hotels and all the way to the pier which is the downtown. Instead of walking from the front of the hotel, you may want to try to walk a long the beach to the pier. There are many cozy bars along the way. The staff were veyr polite. There are no waiters or waitress as all self service besdie the pool bar where ou have to pay if you want cocktails. The cocktails in the hotel is not so good. Yo better try the bars outside. I tried different bars everyday. We did not meet any rude German. There are many Russians. Not one of them were rude. Most of them were very good looking. They really made a lot of efforts to look good at dinner time. Not just this hotel but in the downtown too. You will found many signs in Russian Conclusion. This is a good hotel. We were happy with what we got. I think the bad reviews are not fair. I don't understand what did people who gave bad reviews expected from their money.
