A small nice hotel just outside Agios Nikolaus which has seen better days. You could feel that the hotel has been affected by the economical crisis. The rates and restaurant prices were too high for what they offered and left a sour taste. The rooms were tiny as was the bathrooms again not what you would expect at that level...

Just a wonderful experience from start to finish. Exhausted new parents taking a break, and this place provided everything we needed - service, food, views, and weather to boot! What a place. We will be back for sure!

After staying at the best spas around the world, I can honestly say this is one of the best when it comes to the treatments, products and the staff (and I'm fussy). The first day here I woke up with a mosquito bite on my eye, which made my eye swell and close up. I went across to the Spa...

The hotel is in a really good position on the bay - lovely views from our room. The small private beach is safe, and the infinity pool is beautiful. We did not experience any difficulty finding sun beds as there are beds available on various levels round the bay. The staff were unfailingly attentive, and we enjoyed excellent service from...

We spent a week here mid September with another couple. The hotel was perfect for us. The layout of the complex is quite 'villagey' which meant we didn't have walk through an impersonal and public foyer every time we went anywhere.
