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...

The location of the village is serene and somewhat isolated (not necessarily a bad thing). The food is better than most half board (dinner) service is very good. The beach is questionable unless you like to dive straight in or if you a diver. There is a great snorkelling lagoon with lots of underwater activity, however if you like to...

Our experience showed that all the good reviews are well earned. We found the buffet restaurant best for our needs because we are not big eaters and could pick what we wanted.
