Lovely clean hotel and all very friendly staff

First anniversary stay
Trip was for our first anniversary which we were after some time to relax. We definitely got this here! Hotel staff were lovely and upgraded us with surprise gifts which awaited our return from Samaria Gorge! Only room downside were two beds rather than a double but beds were comfy still!

Ok hotel - for 3 stars!
to be honest I expected a little more for 5 star rating - genuinely in my eyes this is a 3 to a 3.5 star max. Especially when you have to pay extra for everything - including a safe!! The distance from the airport etc should have been made a little more obvious - its not that easy to get to. In my view, it was expensive for what it was. Please be aware that you even have to pay for the beds on the beach every single day you go. Towels you have also hire out. We paid a 2000 for 7 days and I feel it wasn't worth that much. Also the pool - not enough beds as people take them early. Noise - room 101 - at 8 am every morning - lots and lot of noise from the kitchen below.

Perfect Hotel for Clubbers
Checked in at midnight into a nice suite - until the aircon leaked water all over the bed. Front desk moved us into a room on the main road - about 200 meters from a club that rocked until 6:00am. If you are on the exterior of the property plan your day (and night) accordingly - probably won't be getting much sleep.
