Good hotel could be great…
Good hotel, could be great but service lets it down. From waiting to be seated to being served…getting restaurant staff attention was very frustrating. Staff literally avoid eye contact or defer to someone else when you do make contact & then you are waiting again! We found it really strange as it was the majority of staff (with a couple of exceptions.. Manos always reliable & pleasant). It is shame as it is a nice hotel, with good amenities and lovely setting but I wouldn’t return due to the poor service. At this standard of hotel it should be exceptional!

Fantastic staff, great service in all areas of the hotel. Wonderful breakfast options. Could make more of the beach and pool facilities, which have great location but spoiled by assuming guests need music and a DJ from midday to create 'ambience'. In the evening only would be better,

Luxury stay.
Fabulous new hotel in southern Crete. Lovely beach. We will definatly go back again. The grounds and sunloungers were lovely and luxurious and our room was very comfortable. The only down side was the resturant for dinner, we didnt really like the chioces.

4/10 Fair

Firstly I want to say that we love to travel but very seldom leave reviews. We aren’t tremendously fussy but we spent 10 days here and felt we must share our experience. The 1st thing to note is that the two swimming pools are freezing, almost no one used them the whole time we were there. The med (which was by no means warm) felt like a hot tub by comparison. The 2nd is that the rooms are already falling apart. Ours had plaster spread across the ceiling and above the toilet from a bodge fix as well as a dressing gown hanger that was falling off the wall with screws protruding out. Additionally the door didn’t close properly and during the windy nights kept us up for hours until we figured out that we could stuff tissue paper between the gap to stop the constant thudding. There is no casting on the TV and the screen mirroring did not function on iPhone (12) and there was no access to Netflix or any other streaming platform. The cost of the food and drink was also extremely high. 4 euros for a bottle of water is criminal in 28 C heat and the price of an aperol spritz went from 8 euros to 10 midway through our stay. When we asked why, the waiters said they did not know and that they thought it was odd also. The food was also strangely inconsistent. Identical meals were twice unrecognisable the second time we ordered them (the sepia dish especially), again when we politely asked why no explanation was given. Lastly they were fixing the drains near our room, it stank.

Amazing suites, wonderful location on the beach, extremely friendly and helpful staff! The hotel is just open and maybe still working some things out but if something is wrong they will make it right 10x over and make sure you’re happy! Highly recommend, would stay here again!

6/10 Good

The location is nice and the the hotel is new, with a beautiful design and a lot of potential, but it definitely needs improvements. The facility and the personnel are not completely organized and prepared to manage a partially or fully booked resort. The parking inside the resort is limited to a small number of cars and most of the days is full. Customers that don’t find a spot inside need to park outside the property, which is quite disappointing. The management is aware of the parking issue and they keep apologizing about it, but they should have thought about it when they developed the resort! Similarly to the parking issue, the beach has the same problem. The resort has direct access to the beach, but there are not enough umbrellas/beds matching with the number of customers in the facility. Sometimes beds are all taken and you can’t stay at the beach and need to move to the pool.The pool by the beach is usually full of people too, so you may not be able to find a spot there either. The breakfast is the other dark side of the resort, they serve it from 7:30 to 10:30, but if you arrive at 9:00, several food options are gone already and they don’t replace them. People going to breakfast at 10:00, are left with leftovers and way less options than early birds. In a resort of this category, all customers should have all the food options available during the entire time breakfast is served.

Outstanding experience
One of the best hotels I have stayed so far in Greece. Modern, stylish rooms and the services were outstanding! The free bottle of wine and Greek traditional sweets were the cherry on top. Great experience, I will deffo visit again.
