We arrived at the hotel at around 11 am and we were not greated very well, no smile, no welcome, we felt like intruders because our plane arrived earlier than 14, their check-in time. Moving past the first impression, which was very bad, the hotel has nice ammenities: a nice pool where we could always find a chair and umbrella,...

We love this place. We came for our honeymoon and that hotel is very nice. Very clean inside and outside. Owners have two hotels and have international experience with services. Owners are very friendly. We came at 2:30am to reception because bus technical problem. Stuff in there made us a late dinner! It was nice. Rooms are simple but clean....

After some confusion with tripadvisor/booking.com reservations (see my review of Aldemar Cretan Village), we ended up here and could not have been happier. I think this is the place I intended to book. This is a small property that is family owned and run. They will make you feel like family. The owner picked us up in her personal vehicle...

I like this place becuase its not in the middle of the noise, its on top of the hill, only about 300-400 meters away from the beach. Its not the best place for people who want to be all day on the beach and who want to have everything in the next 20-30 meters... But if you are looking for...

If you want a quite, restful, well run hotel, this is perfect. It is situated about 10 minutes walk or less from the beach. There are two supermarkets and a lovely restaurant just a few minute's away. It is family run between Connie, George and Mary who made so welcome that we felt like one of the family. Or the...

I travelled as a family with 2 children. I contacted the hotel prior to going to enquire about the way to get there from the airport. They kindly arranged a taxi pickup who was waiting promptly with my name on a board and we arrived in about 20mins. My room was fantastic, pretty new by the looks of it. Spacious,...

My mother and her friend went on holidays here and they only speak Russian. The only one on the property who spoke Russian was Ira. A rude and hostile woman. Not only they take money for air-conditiong from tourists (€ 47 per week) - absurd! But tried to blame some child's scribbling on a table in the room and asked...
