Up on roof surprise was that the loungers were so comfortable and the pool so fresh. Pigeons and seagulls drop in to say hello from time to time. Food super at breakfast and charming and helpful...

This is something else.. I really liked the hotel. From the design to the food and service. Everything is perfect. The location is the best very close to the sea and city. The room service got a lot of options in the menu.

From the moment I walked in, I felt truly welcomed by the staff. It is a beautiful hotel, inside and out, walking distance from the ferry port and right behind Heraklion's bus station. I got there early in the morning, on the overnight ferry from Athens, but was lucky enough to have a room ready for me, around 09:00 AM....

Great place! Super luxurious. Queen size bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was beautiful & spotless. Front desk staff were high-class and very friendly. Free parking at the backside of the property. Breakfast was included and was delicious. Only gripe was the wifi - 2Mbps down, .23Mbps up.
