Visited on a 4 day break for a "girls catch up" and had a wonderful break. Restaurants fantastic - both food and service. We especially loved the Mediterranean restaurant because the meals were excellent and loved the entertainment. Rooms, spa , bars and beach area all equally good. Also visited Spinalonga which was so interesting.

We traveled as a family at the end of the season, i.e. mid-October. We stayed in the Ambassador suite, which (as described) is a bungalow-like building with 2 bathrooms, separate living and sleeping area, an outdoor garden space and (in our case) direct view of the sea and one of the small private beaches. The entire hotel complex probably dates... More

Lovely hotel with delightful staff. We visited with a 19 month old and the beach was great. Safe and gently shelving. The spa was very good and had spectacular views. Large outdoor pool but we found it too cold for the baby but this didn't matter because we went to the beach. We hope to return next year.
