We booked in december 2017 for this june under the impression it was an adults only holiday as it came up in the adult only search results.
The resort is built into the hillside which is incredibly steep and not advertised as is. Where ever we go we ask for floor level even if only two floors and make sure there are lifts due to back & spinal problems, however even though we requested this from the start on arrival we were given a room in the 400's and even after explaining we had requested a level floor room, were given a room in the 300's for the first night as there were no more rooms available. We were eventually given a room on the second floor the next day.

The room itself was ok and we were given a kettle in case i had to stay in my room because of being up a level! (not really the answer to an expensive holiday)
Our cleaner on the other hand colipio (i think thats how it's spelt) was a dream and a lovely person.

The Hotel consists of two pools, two bars, one snack bar and one main restaurant. There is no al a carte restaurant.

The pools are salt water. This is not a problem , the problem lies with babies and nappies. Nappies when wet through start to leak disposable substance and the pool bottom was becoming slimey. Sunbeds are hard to get unless you grab one around 7am.. some people will quite happily save beds and not use them for four or five hours or be over at the other pool!

The snack bar was basic and we only ate there once as food was not labeled for any allergies.

The main restaurant was basic food. Breakfast was part english, part continental and the same every day. This is also the only time you saw different cheeses.
The main dishes were basically the same every day apart from maybe one or two.
No foods were labeled for allergens and this made it difficult for myself personally to eat. Both my husband and i have never been ill on a holiday before but both of us suffered on this one. There is no structure to the restaurant. The entrance is opened and it is like a free for all, for seats and for food. There is no system and because the food is so close to the entrance people are constantly having to get untangled from one another.

The all inclusive word unfortunately does not exist. All inclusive should mean just that. But the bar shuts at 11pm and whilst some may say what are you complaining about, read on. Free drinks do not start untill 11.am and that includes water, tea and coffee. So you may have paid for all inclusive but there are times you will be paying for extras which is not what an all inclusive is about.

The bar man himself (Nicholas) was good though, friendly and observant. We could at least have a good laugh with him.

No entertainment for adults. The most entertaining thing we saw was other adults playing cards.

This was a very difficult holiday for us, we went to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and paid a lot of money for a room, pool and bland food.
We spent far too much on top eating out as did others simply because there is only so much of the same salad or soup you can eat.

Places highly recommended are The country house, Karavi, The white lion and Taverna mezes for good food.

Crete is a beautiful country and we would probably visit again but it wouldn't be at this hotel.

The hotel was clean but just a little tired. The cleaners were great and did an excellent job. The bar staff were brilliant fun and very entertaining as were the entertainment staff. The food was amazing, put on a stone as I had to try everything twice! Deserts to die for and salad and meat dishes beautiful. The pool with the slide was a bit of a worry, saw a few people slip on the stairs and somebody hurt themselves quite badly, although the reception staff claimed that it wasn’t an issue . Also, the children’s entertainment area has large steps going up a hillside which the children were running up and down, I saw a little boy go head first down them and still they weren’t cordoned off. A few concerns but on the whole nice hotel and met some amazing people from UK.

We came here for one week with 2 kids. It was a very nice holiday! The food was okay, the rooms are very nice but only the animation guy he was looking in his work time a soccer match.. The other 2 girls they are playing with the kids and adults, that was good. And what do this guy? Sitting and looking soccer? Sorry but i think it is not normal if we see the other 2 gils working and he is looking by the bar a soccer game for 1.5 hour.. We like the girls from the animation a lot. Working a lot. Respect! It was A nice holiday we enjoyed!

Never been in such a terrible hotel no mattress covers on beds. Ate out most of the time as food terrible. This is a all inclusive hotel but the range of drinks was not up to much so had to buy from local super market. Dirty rim around the children's swimming pool. This hotel as put me off Greece altogether. Certainly wouldn't recommend it.
