This is a Heavenly hotel in paradise. As soon as you arive you feel relaxed, with the pleasing architecture and friendly welcome. The staff made us feel like Gods and Godesses in Mount Olpympus. The owner of the hotel, Mr. Kostas, is very pro active and dynamic. All staff are very attentive and kind. Everything you want from a hotel you will find here, and more. When we arrived late at night they had left a meal and 2 bottles of wine in our room. The swimming pool is fabulous , the best in any hotel we have been to. The sea view is great and the atmosphere is so calm and tranquil. The other guests sitting around the pool with us were very friendly as the happy atmosphere is contagious. There is a variety of entertainment including greek dancing and music, international music , tenors and latin music etc. We had alot of fun in the island bar which has a dj, Yanis, most nights and You can choose any music you want.Anthoula is there to mingle with the guests and ensure you have a good time, the godess of fun !, and Dimitri looks after your every need here and in the beach bar. The room is good and clean ,The view from the balcony excellent as we overlooked the pool, the sea, and the landscape.We found a very good deal with the Yield manager Kiaglas Lefteris so may be better to book direct with the hotel. George Klados , the operations manager introduced us to the hotel owner, Kostas Troulis and other members of staff who were all very friendly at the welcome cocktails event which was a very happy, intresting moment We would recommend the spa pool, there are several different jets, the water is warm and if you book, the pool is for your private use for almost one hour. The staff are excellent in particular Anthoula,who goes the extra mile, Pavlos, Yanis ,Irini, MIltos and Andreas, impossible too mention them all,Christos makes the best omletts !.
We have been to Crete 4 times but this was the best hotel and the best holiday we have had.The Hotel is in the middle of the island and if you have plans to visit places you are in the best location to go in any direction. We would recommend hiring a car as there are so many beautifull places to visit, including Knossos palace,Festos palace Malia palace balos beach,crissie island
elafonisi ,vai beach, matala prevelli, Heraklion museum, Rethymno, Chania, and monestaries to name but a few. Everything in this hotel is the optimum, pleasent, a heavenly hotel in paradise. We will definately be returning for two weeks for my birthday 30 June next year. I hope this review helps you, believe me this is the best option.
