had a lovely two weeks at beginning of june here, but there were a few areas youshould be aware of if you fancy a trip here! the write up says 3 adult only pools, well no there was only 3 pools for general use (unless you have paid for one of the private villa appartments at a huge expense!) so no - the indoor pool was out of order and the other two were full of children! the rooms were nice but the air conditioning not very 'cool' and the fridge (free) not overly cool either! resort nice and clean. staff helpful and frienly in the main. the canteen - sorry resterant was good with big choice of food but HOT phew!! like the other lady says in here review - shame about the rude russians and germans ... we went all inclusive but wouldn't again because we went on 4 day trips so missed nearly all meals. men have to weat long trousers at eve' meal which we felt rather unecessary as it was harly a la carte dining! beach gritty shingle and sand mix so hard on feet but lovely when further in to water. only one bar to go to in eve so not enough variety. the entertainment great for families but not really for couples. had a great hol and would love to go back to crete!
