Myself and my friend booked this trip for a get away from it all break and this hotel certainly delivered. It's a beautiful place to stay and looks even better than the brochure pics! From the minute we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the staff whom we found to offer outstanding service. The Greeks are naturally friendly and courteous...

This hotel was lovely with wonderful pools, bars, dining areas and staff. However, the letdown was the occasional lack of hot water during peak demand times AND, this was the big one for the loss of an "excellent" review, despite a wonderful range of choices and flavours, the "hot" food was never hot enough.

A little hectic at the airport in Crete, arrived late at night. The coach driver and Thomson Rep seem to have had a dispute, he spoke little English and seemed quite stressed. We arrived to a lovely war welcome, champagne, wet flannel and quick check in process. As it was past midnight we had missed our meal but was kindly...

What a beautiful hotel room overlooking the sea with open bathtub for just two loving ones....

Arrival - the airport toilets are horrid so go on the plane before you land. We booked return private taxi transfers (approx. 1 hour) via Thomson rather than getting the coach (approx. 2 hours+ apparently). After leaving the airport the taxi transfer passengers were pulled out of the larger queue and introduced to their driver, then ushered to a clean...

Crete is a beautiful place and I'd return every year if I could although maybe not here. Elounda is a long drag from the airport and this hotel is firmly on the outskirts.
