A generally nice hotel, about 13 km from Agios Nikolaos, built on a hill slope with an amazing sea view. The physical environment is fantastic, with rich plantation and oxygen. The beach is private and the sea is absolutely perfect with crystal clear water. Our room was clean, very comfortable and we could enjoy our little garden! However, the hotel...

We had a lovely relaxing week at this hotel. The rooms are old fashioned but this isnt a problem as they are very clean, spacious and functional. the only thing missing for me was drawers to store clothes and I ended up mainly not unpacking. All the staff were friendly and created a great atmosphere. I did not book meals...

great locatio, in front of a most beautiful beach. Spacious rooms, all of them with sea view (or most of them). Big pool. Nicest view from the restaurant. Second restaurant on the beach. But: installations are very old, not renovated; the building looks its age (built in 1982, as far as I know). For 5 days no change of towels...

We stayed at this hotel in June and were most impressed by the quick efficient check in and friendly welcome. The room was very clean with a fantastic view of the beautiful Istron Bay from our two balconies !!! We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the delicious range of food served in the evening at the beach restaurant.

Overall. Incredible views offset by a hotel that is stuck in the past. Small changes in décor and management vision would turn this hotel into a place to return to. Until then, the view doesn’t outweigh the negatives and I won't be returning. Positives • Exceptional view • Friendly hardworking staff • Clean • Nice beach • Restaurant by the...

This hotel has a true Greek soul. Set in it's own stunning bay, it is typical Cretan hospitality. Some reviewers have said it is a little tired, but it has character and atmosphere and staff who have been there for years, making you feel part of their family. It is reasonably priced and a little away from the touristy areas,...
