If you're going to stay anywhere in Crete, it should be here. The views are stunning. We were all inclusive which provided decent food and a decent selection of drinks. It's a bus journey to the nearest town of Hersonissos but not a lot of money and is definitely worth the visit. The esplanade has quite the selection of bars...

Overall I had a good experience! You can have good banter with (most) of the staff. There is a quiet pool for adults to relax. A mini water park for the kids and a mixed pool. They offer free exercises and workshops. I loved the water aerobics. Spa looked nice, If I had a bit more money I would have...

We (family of 3) stayed here in July 2016 and enjoyed our stay. Even though we normally rather eat in small tavernas than all inclusive or half-board basis, this time we chose to eat at the hotel restaurant. The food was much better than regular buffet food, there really were plenty of choices, greek specialities as well. The dessert buffet...

I have never been to Greece before and this was our hotel of choice. I always use trip advisor to gauge whether the hotel is going to be right for us. We arrived in good time and we were taken on a little buggy to our room. Our room was beautiful clean with everything working correctly. We had a small...

My better half and I could not fault this beautiful place! The staff worked very hard and certainly earned every penny. As for those gurning that it was uphill, this is very visible when you look online and you could also contact the hotel to ask for a room further down. If you did not research this prior to your...

arrived after a thunderstorm, then weather cooler than would have liked. However it didn't rain and it was mostly sunny. This made us get out from around the pool. It's easy to walked into both Hersonissis and Stalis. I wouldn't recommended the former as its packed with no public beach. Stalis is a pleasant and pretty seaside walk and the...

We had an amazing time at the grand hotel. The facilities were clean and comfortable and all was well laid out. We spent a lot of time at the adults only pool, which was maintained peaceful and relaxed! The slides were a fun addition and there were plenty of activities. The food was beautiful and there was plenty of variety...
