    Great setting in the beach . Rooms were dated , half board option was restricted to dinner buffet only so not worth going half board . No entertainment in the evening even in peak season. One night they had Greek night which was 65op. WiFi is dreadful so bring your own

    Perfect place for a family holiday

    The setting is exquisite and it is a perfect venue for a one week holiday with more than enough to do. The beaches and sea are fabulous, food in the buffet and lunch time restaurants is really excellent. There is a sushi restaurant that offered super expensive food that wasn’t very good, but otherwise great. They messed up one of our room bookings (forgot about one of our sons) but eventually sorted it all out. Strongly recommend for family holiday - we were 7 and it worked well for everyone

  • 4.0.Fair

    Nice beach and pool. Queen bed is actually 2 singles pushed together. So if you are sleeping in the middle 9f two mattresses it gets very uncomfortable. So not a good night sleep at all

    The hotel caters to all your needs. Good facilities and water sports available. Very close to the quaint town of Elounta and Spinalonga island. The negative is as it is a 5* hotel extras can be expensive. I enjoyed my holiday in this tranquil, picturesque place.

    Relaxing Hotel

    A very good hotel. Good staff and a very calm vibe. A little lost in the 80s in terms of style and appeals to an older crowd or those wanting to totally relax. Not crowded when we went and made us slow down. Service caters for you doing nothing at all but relaxing. A few niggles re plastic in the seas of the coves, the half board food being a little monotonous and water sports not being able to do sailing lessons for our family together but nothing major
