This is a well run hotel and we were looked after from the minute we arrived. Gianni was the perfect host and made us feel very welcome. If you want 5 star luxury then pay for it, this is a brilliant budget hotel with as much raki as you can drink especially if Gianni and Stavros have their way lol....

2 weeks all inclusive, end of season. Outstanding location next to the beach, responsive and outgoing staff with plenty of local bars & shops nearby. The all-inclusive service shuts at 10Pm but the bar itself will stay open pretty much till the last people leave between 01:00-02:00 in the morning. The beach is the longest sandy beach in West Crete...

The food was ok but basic and breakfast was poor. The rooms are ok and they do get cleaned every day apart from a...

We arrived and were shown to our room 501 by a very pleasant young receptionist, thats where the positive experience ends!! The bed was rock hard and the bathroom looked like something from Eastern Europe or from the Borat movie! It was so dirty we were actually concerned about leaving our toothbrushes and that we could go down with Typhoid,...

Four of us, two couples, booked in at the beginning of September for 10 days. The rooms we were given in the main building had a few problems, very noisy air con in our room, and our friends toilet lid only partly opened due to poor fitting..

As someone who always tries to see the best in situations I have to say I am struggling to find a good word.
