Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a swim up pool room. I’d rate rather good hotel. But you had to wake earlier to take sun beds otherwise they were out for all day. What was good that they added Aperol Sprits to the AI menu. Food was very good! Glasses and cups at the bar were very nice and branded. Barmen worked quickly. Room was really good one

Stunning Perfect holiday. We had 1 week which was not long enough. Hotel, staff and ambiance was unbelievable. Food was excellent every day, Staff always smiling and went above and beyond to ensure you have a perfect holiday. Special thanks go to Drita, Manos, Anna and Elena for making our stay truly memorable. In addition highly recommend visiting the Spa where you come out feeling incredibly relaxed and rejuvenated, special thanks to Maria and Marianne. We are now planning our next visit for 2024. Although very close to the airport and regular aircraft arriving do not let this hinder you from visiting this exquisite Hotel

First thing, the food is superb, we never ate the same meal twice and if we did it was by choice. The a la carte restaraunt is stunning. Everything in the hotel is spotless and the floors are cleaned approx 3 times a day. The bedrooms are lovely, we did have a room issue when we arrived but that was quickly sorted. The pool and private beach are beautiful and the poolside bar is clean and tidy and the staff fabulous. All the members of staff we met were polite and always smiley, nothing was too much trouble. My one gripe is, being an early riser (5am) it would be nice for the pool bar area to have a working coffee machine, there is one there, but no-one could get it working. When the bar closes at midnight there is nowhere to get a hot drink except your room, so that would also be nice for the guys who stay up late. Also, there are not enough tables in the evening outside and some of us had to sit on the edge of the restaraunt, but then they turn the lights off and you are in the dark, not good when playing cards. Other than that, we are booking again to return.

We decided to spend our honeymoon in this hotel and i have to say it was best choice. Immediately when we arrived to the hotel we felt relaxed atmosphere, saw smiling people and we felt very welcome. We really enjoyed amazing food, beautiful beach, great drinks...we had even beautiful decorated door and surprise in the room because of our honeymoon. Everything what you can wish for. But most important in this hotel is staff - always in good mood and very friendly. True star of the hotel is front office manager Pezanaki Fei..you cant have great hotel without great staff and thats what Fei is. She is true gem. So friendly, helpful and professional..After one week here we went to travel around island and then we came back to this hotel for final few days and actually it was like we returned home. Besides Fei we have to say big thank you to Manager Giorgos as he made our honeymoon unforgettable, to Manos, Drita, Alexandra etc. If you cant decide if you should go to this hotel - dont hesitate and book it..this is one of kind and we will definitely come back <3

A week that we will never forget. The resort is so clean, confortable, charming; is not too big so everything is close and “familiar”. Attention to details is on top level, and the food is awesome in both restaurants. The pool and the beach are excellent. Special thanks to: - Spa “healers” Maria and Mariana: we’ll always remember your relaxing massages! - All reception, bar, restaurants personnel: your kindness made our stay even more special. Eukaristó!

Wow. What an incredible establishment! Money well spent indeed. From the moment we stepped in, we were treated to amazing service. I’m certain that you will not find a hotel providing a level of service like that in Crete. The staff ensured we felt like home and were friendly and welcoming. A special shout out to Manos and Anna (Pool Bar) who really went the extra mile to brighten our days and make our stay even more pleasant. Service aside, the views are breath taking. Whether it was day or night, the views from the main/pool/blue bar overlooking infinity pool, sea, sunset and sunrise seemed so unreal. To top it off, the views of planes landing just a few miles away to the local airport was fascinating. The buffet food was amazing but the A La Carte took fine dining to a whole new level - we would highly recommend. The massage as also fantastic. My partner are 26 and 27 from the UK but sometimes felt like the the bar staff felt a bit patronised serving us and we slightly felt their “coldness”, there was also sometimes an issue with the language barrier with the staff serving drinks to the table. Nonetheless, this didn’t hamper our trip in anyway nor should it to anyone else planning to go. A solid 9.8/10 trip - see you again next year! P.S I’d also recommend checking out the Peskesi restaurant next door too as a bonus.
