  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Oct 2019. We arrived late evening and the man on the desk, was not very kind to us, very rude. Had to email a copy of booking to reception to prove who we was. The rest of reception staff was very good during our 2 weeks stay. Our room was located near the main road right at bottom of the steps. Lots & lots of steps, only suitable for anyone who is very fit 140 steps from top floor to our room. Was very fit at end of our 2 weeks. We had a excellent sea view from our room window. The area we stayed in was very modern, newer part of resort. New modern electrics with lots of USB points and wall mounted TV. so it was worth walking down all the steps to get to our room. We only took the transport occasionally. Restaurant - It is a bit disappointing when you first walk in, needs upgrading, redecorating. The staff in the restaurant did look after you, and food was very good standard. Some staff members did serve you most of the evening in different parts of resort, and they where very nice to us. Did try the Greek Restaurant & La Carte Restaurant as well. The Resort was good value for the price which we paid 42% off, but some areas like main restaurant are not 5 star. There was some entertainment, but we would have liked more entertainment most evenings and in the main hotel bar next to reception. Went down to the beach a few times, but it is a long walk down the hills in the heat, best to take the bus. local bus to Herakilion from the resort, it is in a remote area.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Rude reception staff including general manager, small dirty room not what we paid for or what is shown on the web site photos of a standard double room with sea view. We stayed a total of 10 hours and left for alternative accommodation at our expence .We have holidayed on Crete for the past 20 years 2 or 3 times a year and never experienced such rude staff or poor quality accommodation. Based on our brief stay at this hotel I would give it 2* max and that is being generous.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
stay here

Checkin was extremely rude, the food in the buffet was all cold and if you moved to get some you lost your table. The checkout was the only thing I would say was ok and that’s because we were getting out of there.
