We have just returned from 2 weeks R&R at the Island and as always we had the most lovely break. The team have done so much since we were there in October, and have clearly been very busy all trhough the winter getting everything ready for the new season. It was great to have such superb food and Cretan wines...

I visited the island hotel last week. I was celebrating my anniversary. The hotel was beautiful and the staff were amazing. The rooms were very clean and well maintained with plenty towels and shampoo. There were some lovely taverns and bars near the hotel. The only downside was the evening entertainment. It was a bit boring but I am already...

We are not in the habit of going back to the same place again but we would go back to this hotel. The hotel is well laid out and is kept well looked after. The rooms are very comfortable, the only down side is possibly some of the balconies are very small - ours was ok (room 964). The staff...

Staff all go the extra mile. Ladies take a travel hairdryer the one in the room cuts out after less than 5 minutes needs time to reset then works again, frustrating when drying hair. If you like decaf coffee or tea take your own as they charge at breakfast for decaf drinks.

One of the best hotels I have stay in! Staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for you. Would highly recommend and will defiantly go back to the hotel. It was clean, food was great something different each night. Loads of activities and things to do within the hotel. Not loads in the surrounding area but it didn't cause us...

Very nice hotel and staff. Especially the staff is very friendly , not harassing or ignoring you. Just right😄. The food is good , varied, fresh and hygiene is also very good. The accomodation is clean, nothing is broken and the resort still looks like it was built recently. I would definitely recommend going here

We spent a week here 7th-14th May, and loved it. The hotel was fairly quiet when we arrived, but was filling up by the time we left. In fact, the only downside for us, was that the bars in the hotel were rather quiet in the evenings, but this was definitely becoming less so by the time we left. The...

Upon arrival we were greeted with smiles, helpful advice and shown straight to our room, advised that even though we arrived late in the evening, we were still provided with a lovely dinner in their stunning main restaurant. The main restaurant catered for all, buffet style themed nights, however there was always a western option for the non-adventurous. The food...
