Overall this is a great value for all inclusive. I cannot compare to others in Europe, but I found the food much better than all inclusives in the Caribbean, the views are great, and the location is amazing. Is the food better at restaurants in Crete? Absolutely, but this is still worth it even if you're planing to taking the cheap/easy bus into Chania old town for 1 meal per day as we did - it's the best of all situations. The only criticism I'd give is that the staff could be a bit more friendly and accommodating - the Bartenders were usually very good and friendly, and the Porter was top-notch, but most others were often nowhere to be seen and could be in a rush when you finally got to speak to them.
