This was one of the most pleasurable and enjoyable experiences that my mother and I have ever had. The hotel exudes tranquility and harmony and the staff are probably the most accommodating that I have ever encountered. Their genuine wish to please and to contribute to the holiday experience is touching and endearing yet remaining very professional. To name but a few, Giorgios and Maria from the dining room service along with the Mâitre d’hôtel also Giorgios were most welcoming and friendly. They made every guest feel at home and looked after. The waitress for the beach bar Eleni was always available and ready for orders from our room and the massage lady Aphrodite very charming. The room was fabulous and very comfortable. The maid service was quite incredible and very attentive. It is hard not to feel completely pampered and every wish catered for. Our maid Maria was amazing and always made sure not to intrude or to disturb yet always left our room in an impeccable state. The cleanliness in general was of a very high standard. The beach bar was lovely and the food delicious and the staff eager to please even with special orders not on the menu. Equally the food whether in the restaurant or à la carte was always fresh and delicious. We loved the healthy breakfast option at the beach restaurant too – our compliments to the omelette cook. The main theme was “nothing is impossible” and all the staff lived by this philiosophy including the reception staff and the lovely Ada who were always ready for a chat or a feedback. We will definitely return to this lovely hotel and look forward to our next Paralos Lifestyle experience – thank you everyone for your amazing attention to detail and kind service.

I was looking for a holiday that offered me total relaxation and this hotel delivered. The staff are superb. The food excellent. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the layout around all of the pools is very tranquil. Beach and sea fabulous. Highly recommend and only 20 mins max from Heraklion airport.

I literally have only good things to say about this hotel. On the day of arrival, they offered us free champagne and explained all the benefits of the hotel to us carefully. Our room was very nice but our balcony did not have such a nice view, which is why we asked if it would be possible to change rooms. They immediately looked for room availability and scheduled the room change for the next day for free! Our new room had a spectacular view. Now, on to the food: one word: delicious!! I never expected a buffet restaurant to amaze me but this one did. The food was amazing, and it varied from evening to evening. Moreover, we met the nicest waitress there is: Maria! (I personally worked 2 years as a waitress and so I know what I’m talking about). She made all dinner and breakfast experiences extremely pleasant. Apart from this buffet section, there is one more breakfast buffet section next to the sea which offers a more healthy selection of foods (also very very good). I almost forgot to mention that they cook most of the food in front of you. For instance, you can choose how you want your omelet made (eg the ingredients) or if you want a poached egg on a bed of avocado bread (super delicious)!! I also should mention that the hotel is gorgeous and very clean. You get beach towels that you can change daily. Finally, on our last day, we needed to leave the room at 12 but because our flight was at 19:35, they allowed us to use all the facilities (pool, beach etc) until we left and offered us towels and shower gels to shower before we changed from our beach clothes to our flight clothes. I almost forgot to mention: they have really cool fitness classes (HIIT, conditional training, yoga) and the instructor, Niko, is very nice! If you are wondering where to stay in Crete, definetly choose the Enorme Lifestyle Beach Resort! We can only recommend it with all our heart! Ana and Klinton
