    Great relaxation
    Right on the beach with lovely view. Bedding was amazing and so many great choices at breakfast, but skip the scrambled eggs. I had a great massage. Far from any nightlife or shopping. Wish we had arranged to stay more days. Loved the kittens and dog 'Casper' on the premises.

    Stylish, clean and a warm welcome
    Too short - we didn't get into the hotel until about 10:30pm, since our ferry was late. Then an early morning, too early to enjoy the free breakfast spread. Very stylish hotel and great location with ocean views - gorgeous, but given our short stay, only could see the place at night. Very well lit, nice, friendly & accommodating staff, spacious rooms. Would definitely recommend to others.

    It is a nice hotel but if you do not have a car not much you can do. I think it is pricy for the services offered.

    Potential to be a 5 star property
    Not quite a 5 star property,but has some strong positives. We were in a suite, which has a very large shower with body spray and a large adjoining outdoor shower/garden area. bathtub has jacuzzi jets and a large window to private garden. luxury travertine tile in bathroom. Negatives--bathroom had an open drain under the toilet that smelled a bit. "heated pool" wasn't really (we have a pool at home and are very good at temperature estimates). There was no waiter to bring you drinks at the swimming pools. We had a late check-in and a security guard was rustled up to show us our room. He begrudgingly did this and did nothing more than unlocking the door for us. He did not point out any of the room amenities to us-even those that are unique, like the outdoor shower or hidden toiletries and toilet paper. 2 holes in the tile above the tub had wrinkled pieces of paper taped over them (which made them more obvious. these should have been properly patched and repaired.) They have a restaurant with a Michelin star called Swell. Unfortunately, the night we went, there was a very loud and disruptive young boy of approx 4 years old ruining the very expensive dinners of the rest of the diners. A lot of high end restaurants now have a minimum age of 7 or 8 for their diners. I strongly suggest they do this.

    Knossos was good, but not outstanding.
    3 1/2 to 4 star by western standards. Swell restaurant was great one night, but food made me sick the next. Room was small but comfortable. Great bed! Beaches were full of seaweed and rough waves. Pools were clean, but paint came off onto our skin, painting parts of my daughter blue! Overall was good, but not great value for money. Good for families, but deepish swimming pools. Minimum 80cm deep. Also, nowhere near Knossos palace.
