8/10 Very good

Pros The hotel itself was very nice. We had a room for 4 (2 kids). We had our own terrace on 1st floor. This was an all inclusive hotel, i never do all inclusive but the food was good. Breakfast and lunch was very rich in number of choices. The drinks were typical "all inclusive" type, somewhat watered down, however, you can purchase cocktails for an additional fee. Lots of families and old couples as patrons. Cons The only disappointing thing was the beach (hotel does not own that, only services it). Huge waves almost constantly that precluded anyone for going in water above knees (lifeguard enforced). The beach is sandy but sand looks very muddy, not like the other beaches on Crete. Good thing is we had a car and we went exploring other beaches that are very close by. Those were better for us because they had food/drink service at the beach (one thing i enjoy tremendously in Greece).

great stay great value for money we would go back.
We arrived by taxi €30 15 min journey.. Booking in was friendly quick, and we were taken to our room. All good, the room was as expected clean and pleasant with a balcony & sea view, towels were changed daily, pool towels also provided. Food was plentiful and varied, the staff work incredibly hard providing clean dining area with self serve wine, beer & soft drinks. The Pool area was lively , the beach just over the road also with beds and shade was great. Entertainment staff were really friendly. We spent 5 days here and found EVERY member of staff helpful and really friendly. We paid an excellent price and would on balance say that it was a fabulous place to stay . Just for the record with the information given by reception we walked to the bus stop 15 mins and took the bus back to the airport for €2.25 each !! amazing.

Great family getaway.
Great place for a family. We had a good time and so did our son. Lots of things to do for both us and him. The only thing we were unhappy about was we put in some laundry and they promised it would be done in a day and it took over 2 days and a bit of a struggle to get it. To be fair it is an external service provider but if they offer the service they should manage it and customer expectations better.

Mein Mann und ich verbrachten 6 Tage in diesem herrlichen Hotel. Wir waren von der Freundlichkeit des Personals, vom gesamten Service und von der guten und reichhaltigen Küche begeistert. Wir können das Hotel nur warm weiterempfehlen. Macht weiter so! Wir sehen uns bestimmt wieder! Liebe Grüße aus Bosnien.
