For the ones interested in this hotel i would say is quite good for a relaxing holiday. The hotel is clean but do not expect perfection..is rated as a 3* but i would say is quite at the limit. You have all you need ( bed, desk, fridge, toilet with shower ) but everything very simple. The worst thing was with the food. Breakfast really standard, same undrinkable juice - sometimes to much squash sometimes to much water...-same marmalade, salami, eggs only sometimes..etc. Best dinner we had in the last night, the rest is not that good. Of course you dont leave hungry but is not like a restaurant even if is organized as a buffet.
Location is perfect - there are few beaches - right and left from the hotel - few hundred meters ( i would advise to walk or rent a scooter to see them all as some that are further away towards end of Gouves are perfect ) and is 10 mins away from the village center. Few shops, few pubs but enough for a week.
I would say that is worthed to go for a cheaper holiday. You are close to Heraklion and Hersonissos, which is quite nice as well, if you want to walk / drive around.
Problem is that the hotel is located on the airplanes way to the Heraklion airport. Sometimes can be quite noisy as there is one every 10 mins but it doesnt keep you awake.
Most beaches have a very nice sand - specially the second one as you walk right from the hotel for 10 minutes - or if you walk 25-30 mins on the left ( towards Crete aquarium )is a smaller beach with great sand and further away from the crowded beaches.
Enjoy your holiday wherever you will decide to go.
