We arrived at 6am. The rep took us to our rooms because the family who run the hotel were in bed. The keys were in the door waiting for us. Our rooms were basic but had everything needed. The rooms were cleaned 5 out of the 7 days we were there. The reception area was open from 7:30 am till midnight which is ideal for most family holidays.
The daughter was only to willing to help and gave lots of great advice about where to catch buses and ideas of places to visit. The mother was friendly and could understand the things you wanted but her English wasn't as good as her daughters. However, my Greek is non existent.
As another reviewer said if you learn a little Greek it will go a long way. Please and Thankyou goes far in most countries you visit.
The pool was a great part of the hotel. All of us enjoyed sitting around it and we all enjoyed the pool snacks provided at reasonable prices. (Many of the salad ingredients were grown by the owner.)
There is a bus stop to Malia a few hundred metres from the hotel and the main Beach road is only 5 minutes walk away with lots of traditional food outlets all along the front over looking the sea.,
If you are looking for a lively resort and a top hotel you won't find this staying here. But if you want quiet, relaxing and simple accomodation this is the place for you.
