A taste of luxury without the luxury price tag
I was very impressed with my stay. The facilities (hotel, gym & spa) were exceptional & there was plenty of variety at breakfast and lunch (i didn’t sample the food options in the evening). The staff were very friendly & couldn't be more helpful. The pool was always clean but despite the pictures on the website it's difficult to do full lengths & is more of a cool down type of pool. There is frequent themed nights & whilst I was there there was traditional Greek dancing & singers on. The only thing I could fault was the mattress was very hard so took me a few nights to get used to it & get a good night's sleep. I also used the voucher for the a la carte restaurant within the hotel called Elia. The 6 course meal was absolute perfection & the menu contained some of the best food I have ever eaten so you must visit there if you stay. Very luxurious, well worth the money.

The private pool in our room was phenomenal, yet the towel services for the resort were obscure. Also, the large resort pool chairs were always “held” by patrons who never removed their towels which was frustrating as someone who came in after them.

The hotel is in a very nice location. One of the swimming pool where we sun bathe most of the time has a nice view of the mountains. The food and drinks are excellent, hats off to the chefs and kitchen staff. Majority of the staff were really friendly especially the bartenders and the waiters. Will recommend this hotel to my fAmily and friends. Crete is a stunning island.

Third visit
My daughter and I stay for 4 days each year. We arrive late in the evening, the night manager is always helpful and there is a snack for us in the room. Food is good with wide choice of dishes. Theme nights are fun. The only fault is a lot of people smoke and smoking areas are close to the restaurant, and although the rooms are none smoking they smoke on the balcony.

Great room, very clean, great shower, great food, very good service, friendly staff, nice pool, beautiful hotel. Close to the beach (2 mins walk). There are a few restaurants near the hotel but no nightlife. For nightlife you need a short cab ride to Malia or Hersonissos.
