When I was reading reviews I was a little bit nervous before trip. On place I was extremly surprised how great was the hotel.
But let's start from the beginning:
FOOD: Enough for everybody,after anything has finished they put another portion,food was delicious,everyday something knew,everyone find something.Maybe children between 1-2 years will have problems but it dependes on parents. My daughter eat food from home and fruits and vegetables in Hotel and it was great.
A lot of food,beverages,beer and wine in all incl.One thing I'd love to change was soft drinks-they've made something like soda and it wasn't tasty,the same with juice.Everything else great
HOTEL:It's tipically greek,so do not expect Marriott or Regency Palace,it's traditional,quite clean,well hotel was very clean but cleaners should go on classes:how to clean rooms!But you could get used to it.We've still had a lot of sand in room.
Rooms good equiped,spacious,tv very small but it was ok,fridge without mini bar what was great,very dark bathroom but for a week it wasn't so important.
ACTIVITIES:we have very small daughter but people with 3 yo children should have a lot of free time becauce ladies are doing great job:organaizing a lot of play for young and old,fun in pool,stretching on graas and many more.
BEACH:my favorite beach on Creete. Nice sand,not deep,nice waves,sunchairs for all 6 EUR all day.
POOL:not for us,not to many space around,pool for babies to deep for my daughter.Not enough sunchairs around,you should reserve them in early morning what is frustraiting.
If I should complain on something I would only for to deep babies pool,poor room cleaning.
Everything else and especially food was great.
STaff was very helpfull.
Thank to hotel for this stay.
