    The hotel was excellent in every way. The staff was very professional and kind. We loved the view from the balconey (superior room). The pool restaurant had great service and really good food. On Thursday night they had "Greek night" - live singing and dancing - not to be missed. The hotel had a great atmosphere. Especially recommended for mature couples and couples with older children.

    Good quality, modern fittings. Interesting layout and attractive pool/bar/restaurant area.

    Although this is a 4 star hotel, the air conitioning - which is centrally provided - only operates in July and August, which I think is not acceptable for Crete in June. In fairness, I was given a fan, as my room seemed particularly warm and the busy location meant that leaving the patio door open at night wasn't an option, but it was too noisy and kept waking me up.The smoke alarm has built in coloured lights which flash every two seconds to show that the alarm is working properly!!! This also kept me awake - a real pity as the room was otherwise really comfortable.
