Great place, good ambience. Amazing food and service. Friendly and helpful staff. The spa treatments are reasonably priced and we 4 treatments that left us rejuvenated. The only drawback is that the evening activities are lacking, so an early night is quite the only option if you don't want to sit at the bar.

We spent two weeks here in October 2016. The location is great but isolated from main towns. There are Taxis available by booking at reception. The food and staff were 5 star and the location also. The room was European 3 star and the most annoying thing was little things like coffee and milk were not replaced on a daily...

Visited with my partner last year. Overall we had a great experience although there were a few hiccups- some more, some less significant. The hotel is very nice and clean, big rooms with patio/ balcony, we received a free bottle of wine and fruit basket on arrival and a glass of prosecco at reception when checking in- very nice surprise....

Fabulous room with great vista. Breakfast and dinner buffet second to none. Beach within 5 minutes walk and great inlet for swimming in the sea. So good, that we didn't even try the swimming pools. Would not recommend for the infirm as very hilly. Walk to Elounda about 20 minutes and well worth the visit. Would definitely visit again. And...
