Highly recommended and good value
We are a couple with one 14-year-old daughter and we stayed for two nights. The room was spacious and the layout provided our daughter with a little privacy. The manager/owner and the staff were very polite and accommodating. The location is ideal for Heraklion airport, Heraklion centre, beach and local restaurants.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Close proximity to beach. Generous room size and comfortable bed but my en suite facility was small and in need of some repairs and updating. Having said that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would be very happy to return in the future. Very good value.
