Steinar and Anita are really warm and friendly people, and both Fanny who works in the reception and the cleaning lady are wonderful. The beach is right there by the hotel, and is lovely.

We spent one week in this nice hotel in mid-july,- quiet, relaxing, friendly and with the best service. The owners know how to make you feel comfortable, and Fanny in the reception answers any question you might ask about Crete. She is helping you with rental cars, taxis, where to go and what to see. The biggest surprise this holiday...
