8/10 Very good

Crete is beautiful!
The hotel is run well and has all the facilities that a family would need ie kids club, swimming pools, tennis, beach, games room, car hire desk etc. The food is excellent which we enjoyed thoroughly. The only negative is there is no wifi in the rooms but only near the lobby. Also the rooms are basic and would be more welcoming if they were dressed up a bit by improving the furnishings. Having said that, they were perfectly adequate and very clean. Rooms were cleaned daily by the lovely cleaning lady and towels and sheets were changed daily too. The staff is very helpful, particularly the young lady running the exercise classes and the kids club, who was fantastic.

Gorgeous relaxing hotel close to the beach!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel, so much that we preferred to stay in the resort than leave to sight see!! Relaxing, clean, beautiful tranquil views, lovely food which we enjoyed all inclusively! My husband would have preferred a more English breakfast but we were in crete lol!

Good hotel but misleading website......
We stayed for 2 weeks in August 2014 (2 adults, 2 children 9 & 6) - we arrive late at night & had a lovely welcome, plenty of food saved for us & bags taken to room. Room very disapointing! Expected what the website showed for a family room but got bunk beds & a small room - although it was cleaned very well every day with fresh towels (lots of ants). Hardly any English people in this hotel at all - also NO ENTERTAINMENT AT NIGHT - huge disappointment & would not have booked if known this! Kids disco very good but rest of entertainment non-existant! Activities through day were also badly organised and animation team poor for adults - but, kids mini club through day was very good. Beach is shingle/pepple but clean & beach bar good. Queue a lot at bat day and night - usually only 1 person serving. Plenty of sunbeds by pool & beach all day long - no need to reserve with towels which was great. Food very good but no snacks available through day - just leftovers from restaurant on end of bar. Hotel in middle of nowhere but 20 min bus ride to good sandy beach & nice resort. Long transfer from airport (1hr 30mins in a taxi). Very windy somedays. Overall good holiday but wouldn't have booked if known about no entertainment, long transfer and rubbish room!!

Lovely relaxing holiday.
Lovely relaxing holiday. Great pool, not too busy even in August and lovely to have choice of private beach area with sun loungers. Staff very friendly and attentive. Grounds well maintained. Standard rooms basic but cleaned daily and adequate. Not within walking distance of local town or village so car/taxi required for change of scene or busier, typically Greek evening wandering round shops or choosing taverna for dinner. We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage children. We were the only Brits staying at the hotel at the time which was fine for our week and we enjoyed spending time as a family but the children may have found 2 weeks too long without being able to easily communicate with other children their own age.

Great hotel
We stayed for 6 days and it was the best family holiday we have had in a long time. The staff were lovely and managed to arrange a birthday cake for my son's birthday. We went all inclusive and it was great not worrying about food. The kids especially had a great time in kids club. We intend to go back next year.highly recommended

6/10 Good

Die Zimmer waren sauber und wurden jeden Tag gereinigt, allerdings war Schimmel in den Schränken vorhanden, sodass wir die Kleidung dort nicht aufbewahren konnten. Es wäre nicht notwendig und umweltschonender, wenn die Handtücher nicht jeden Tag gewechselt würden. Die Hygiene im Speisebereich lässt sehr zu wünschen übrig. Die Platzdeckchen sind ekelhaft mit Flecken übersät und zum Reinigen der Tische wird immer wieder der gleiche Lappen verwendet. Die Gewürze am Tisch sind verklebt und auch sonst am Büffet ist alles sehr unhygienisch. Die Lage des Hotels ist fantastisch, direkt am langen Strand. Viele gute Tavernen sind zu Fuß erreichbar. Das Hotel ist fast komplett mit osteuropäischen Urlaubern besetzt, was aber nicht störend war. Grundsätzlich ein sehr schönes Hotel, dass aber eine grundlegende Sanierung notwendig hätte und mehr Engagement vom Management nötig wäre.
