    Good comfort of the rooms

    I have asked 2 inter-connecting rooms They did not notice our request so the 1rst night we were a little far from my children.The food is not good at this hotel (dinner buffet and beach restaurant) Moreover it is expensive.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Very close to beach; pool is nice; B/F is awesome; hotel staff is very helpful; free internet; car rental available at hotel with free parking.

    No music at the pool during the day; no activities in the evening at the hotel; the hotel itself is very nice but we were bored and ended up renting a car and touring around; the hotel beach is ok (nothing special), ... in crete there are so many other beaches that are a lot nicer and a lot more picturesque to visit ...

  • Family with children

    Surprisingly nice. Everything like brand new. Clean, luxurious. Great location near Heraklion, but like being far away in a great beach resort hotel. Great beach front restaurant, very nice rooms, great views. Great fitness facilites.

    Room service closes at 10 p.m.

    Genuinely very disappointing - rooms not cleaned properly-sunloungers at pool without comfort matress so unbearable to lie on - poor catering service - apalling location - no facilities in the hotel and not a feeling at all that you were staying in hotel - lacked atmosphere - Would never stay there again- I travel frequently and that had to have been the worst ever -

  • Family with children
    9.2

    We were made to feel we were the most important guests there - the staff were extremely friendly, efficient and accommodating. We were travelling with a 9mth old and the hotel catered fully to our needs.

    The buffet and restaurant options. We did not choose the HB option and there was only one alternative eaterie as the other restaurant had not yet opened. One evening we chose to try the buffet and found this very overpriced and pretty average. A week of buffet meals would have driven us insane.

  • Couple
    9.2

    I liked our room and especially the balcony with see side view. Hotel staff was very kind. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel placed on the beach.

  • Couple
    5.4

    Staff (not helpful and severly understaffed), noisy location, and the dinning options were very poor (buffet only and the quality of the food was unacceptable despite being expersive relative to Greece).
