We have just returned from a week here! From the moment we arrived the staff were fantastic! The guy on reception took our details and then took us to the restaurant where there was a meal waiting for us.This was a welcome surprise at 3.00 in the morning! The room was not we had asked for (sea view) but facing Sockrates supermarket. Room 165, Nevertheless it was immaculate and a nice balcony and couldn’t see the point of changing. The lovely double shower cubicle is great. Shower was powerful. The bed was the best I have ever slept on! Safety deposit box and air conditioning were free. The air conditioning made very little noise.
The food is great and something for everyone. There is a lovely girl in the restaurant called Stefania. She never stopped smiling and works incredibly hard. We were going on a trip to Knossos and she made sure we got a quick coffee and croissant before we left for the day!
Seve is our favourite though. She really took care of us! Especially down at the small pool!
If you want to go on a trip, go and see Eleni or Irma on reception and they will book it for you! Much cheaper than the reps! We did the Spinalonga and Knossos trips and both had tour guides!
We found only two negative things! The sun beds at the small pool were a bit broken and tatty! Not enough of them either.
The Greek night we signed up for was €15 each! From the moment we arrived there seemed to be a competition to see which member of staff could sign up the most people. We were half board and the food was a buffet style just like we would have had on any other evening in the restaurant! When we went there was a bottle of wine on each table , which we thought was part of your ticket price. No they then took that away and you had to pay for your drinks! I know the musicians and dancers have to be paid,but we at least expected a complimentary drink for our ticket price! It was nice, but we were a bit bored after an hour! It was the same dancing with just different costume changes!
Overall though this is an excellent hotel and the staff are what makes it so!
