We just came back from a fantastic vacation in this hotel. I will be using a lot of superlatives in my reviews but if you browse my other reviews you will see that that is not always the case. If we go back to Crete, we will definitely consider this hotel first!
Every member of the staff was very welcoming and the level of service we received was unprecedented for a hotel in this category. The answer was yes to every request that we made.
This is a family-oriented hotel in a somewhat remote location. This means that it's super cozy and quiet. Perfect for families. It's right there on the beach and there is never a fight to book sun beds either at the beach or by the pool early in the morning. This was an extremely welcome change from us. There are no annoying pool workouts or loud music.
The room was large, much larger than the ones we had gotten in the past for even more money. The beds were comfortable and the AC was working perfectly. We had sea view from the patio and it was so nice to sit there. Believe it or not, you can take photos of the Milky Way straight from the hotel. (With the right equipment of course)!
The food selection was somewhat small but the food was always varied and extremely tasty. It was real Greek home cooking! The kids loved the various pitas.
Please note that the hotel doesn't have a kids club, as a side effect of being relatively small. That said, the reception booked us a babysitter without any problems for a small charge and we were very happy with her.
Wi-Fi it was actually working and this was another very welcome change for us! Instagram was sufficiently fast.
There are numerous beaches that you can drive to in the area so that regardless of the direction of the wind you can find calm seas. Our three favorites were the iguana beach and the two adjacent ones (18 minutes driving time).
I could go on, but I hope that you see from my review that the high scores this hotel received from other reviewers are perfectly justified!
