So we LOVED this place! We stayed in a VIP 2 bedroom Suite with its own private gym and heated pool. I kid you not, the private gym was a riot! The heated pool wasn't as heated as we might have like it, but it was great to have! The public pool was absolutely huge and a great poolside restaurant. The private beach was fun as well for a change. The restaurants were amazing. We weren't great fans of “Amirandes” for dinner buffet but the complementary breakfast buffet had a tremendous selection. “Blue Monkey” had Asian dining and even my teenage son loved it and wanted to return again. My favorite was the "Minotaur" with unbelievable Italian food and a fabulous Picasso collection. We were going to go again but were talked into going to "Xasteria" by the head waiter and we were so happy that we did, it was a true authentic Cretan experience.
However, the best part of the entire experience was the fabulous service. Everyone we met was so friendly, accommodating and helped to make our trip something we will never forget. We have had great service before, but this was one of the best. Our room was not ready when we arrived and they brought us to one of the bar areas, provided drinks, appetizers, constantly checked on us and brought us to the room as soon as it was ready.
