John, gb7 night trip
Good 6.0
A very mixed bag .
Its too long to write about, I will be as objective as possible, everyone wants different things. Room cleaning, whilst the room was cleaned well, there were things missed and not replenished most days. The food was average, some good things but on the whole nothing to shout about. Most of the entertainment was in French which is fine if you are French. Not withstanding that, the entertainment was awful, we went twice, the first everning was "humour", well, it would have insulted a 5 year old, we stayed 15 minutes. The second evening, Cabaret, the music and singing were from a CD and the acting to the scores was, I cant quite think of the word, we stayed 20 mins. After that we just didnt bother. There is a club there which caters for the guests, when these activities start the whole of the main swimming pool, snack bar and pool ares are blasted with clubbing music, so you have to vacate the area to find the salt water pool or go down the sea. This noise took over the whole area and at best for 10 people, while the rest of us went away or put up with it. Beaches are tiny and crammed. If sitting by the salt water pool, very nice, if you want the loo or a drink, then you have to go up ordown 2 floors. We had a sea view room,but also faced another huge hotel. Whilst on the balcony we were ofter blasted with music from this hotel and the opposite. Most staff were not interactive. $45 euros stolen from room, no one in reception was at all interested, almost called us liars.

Would go back!
We were spoilt with a new sea view room which was very spacious. All inclusive meals were not mind blowing but the food was very good with a huge variety for every pallet, this was however only available during meal times so if you have kids do not expect snacks and ice cream all day. The staff, cleanliness and facilities in this hotel cannot be faulted. There are a lot of steps as this is built into a cliff not a problem for us but wouldn’t recommend to those with walking difficulties. Choice of pools were great and the beach although you have to pay for beds and umbrellas (which in my eyes should be included for those staying at the resort) was lovely especially with the bar and superb staff. We had a fantastic visit to Peninsula and would definitely go back.

Lovely hotel with two stunning beaches
Excellent friendly staff, two secluded beaches each side of the hotel and a superb all inclusive range of food and drinks made for a memorable time in Crete.

Beautiful resort and surroundings
Beautiful and clean resort, but getting here from the airport or ferry port is quite difficult if you don't have GPS. The beach is very small, but clean. All inclusive (breaking, lunch, and dinner) had many selections. Rooms are kinda small but very clean. I will be coming back again.

The hotel was very comfortable and staff were very flexible and helpful. We were upgraded as soon as we arrived. Loved the food and the pools but would have liked more musical and possibly other events rather than participative experiences because of language barriers.

Overall happy with the stay.
This Resort is very family friendly and the food is great. I came to this resort to relax after much island hopping and I end up relaxing the way I planned. The all inclusive food was great. the pools were nice and clean. I wish the free wifi was stronger and the room wifi was included in the all inclusive deal.
