4/10 Fair

Customer service is horrible. AC was not working in our room and we asked many times to fix it but no one ever came. Cannot give u a glass of water, u have to buy your own bottle everytime. Very disappointing experience overall considering the price paid. We bought 3 rooms together 6 months before the dste but were all separated.

Fantastic hotel
The hotel was lovely. Never a problem getting a sunbed. Food was good quality and choice the only thing that is not the hotels fault is it is in the direct flight path although after a few days you don’t notice so much

Great location. The hotel is right on the beach even though the beach is no the best if Crete. Food quality and range is very good. The staff are excellent and really go out of their way to connect with guests.

Resort was very busy.. too many people and not enough loungers. Also get to the pool at 10am there is no where to sit. Pictures make it look bigger than it is. Towels were being put out at the pool from 7am would not have been an issue if there was spare.

Amazingly Relaxing Hotel
We stayed here for a full week and it was a really wonderful trip. Hotel was exceptionally clean and staff were very friendly and welcoming. The beach was fantastic with crystal clear waters and plenty of loungers and parasols. We even got a wee bottle of wine in our room on arrival which was a nice touch. Only minor niggles were the pools were all a bit too cold to use (including the shared pool behind our room) and the service was a bit slow at lunch and for drinks at night. Still would highly recommend staying here and totally loved that it was adults only. We paid a bit extra for a late checkout as we had a very late flight and this was 100% worth it as it basically gave us another full day of relaxing by the pool and on the beach.
