Very close to the famous Balos Beach Oasi. Great landscape and incredible clean sea water... a bit windy! You can reach this place via boat of by walking downhill. The only problem is the huge ship approaching the coast. The incredible and wild landscape has been ruined by the huge boat approaching.

We stayed here for just a night in August, and I'm really glad it was just a night! The room was really horribly maintained, the shower curtain fell down just as we walked into the room, there was no toilet paper holder, and the beds weren't really comfortable at all. The pool area and beach was nice, though, but I...

Had an amazing stay in this hotel with friends when we visited Crete. The view was amazing. Our room was very spacious for 4 people and clean. The receptionist (forgot the name) was very nice and took us to show our room.

In early july 2016 I stayed here three nights with my husband, my seven year old and 9-month old sons and my mother. We stayed in a two bedroom suite. Another hotel would possibly call it an apartment. The rooms are quite basic - nothing fancy but the furniture looked whole - matching and proper. The bedrooms are spacious, and...

Wonderful hotel with great views and service! We stayed at Balos Beach for 7 days, and I can definitely say we received far more than a 3-star hotel treatment. We booked a Superior sea view studio, which was very spacious and comfortable for 2 persons. We had an enormous balcony with perfect view to the sea, we were able to...

Reception always very helpful and restaurant just ok, i mean prices are quite expensive (for example 14euro - late diner buffet style). Rest of the Hotel is great, for the...

This hotel is on the route to the famous Balos beach, we had a sea view apartment with s huge balcony. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were large. I loved this hotel but I felt rather sad that it lacked care and attention , the pool area is lovely overlooking the sea . The umbrellas were not...

We choose this hotel first because it's the best location to arrive the earliest possible in Balos beach but we eventually realised that this was not the only advantage of this hotel. All rooms have a very nice view on the sea. Rooms have a good quality bed and are quiet. The breakfast is also very good and there is...

We booked this hotel after a long hard day at Balos beach(long walk with lots of stairs in the scorching sun). It cost €57 and the accommodation were above average but not amazing. It was worth the money spent. The bed was firm but not as uncomfortable as some we've slept in our 1 week in Crete. The pool was...
