Based on a pretty steep hill (like so much of Crete), this isn’t the place to go if you have difficulty with steps - although there is a small ‘train’ which carries guests around the resort in case of knackered legs. We did hear rumours of the hotel putting people in the furthest away rooms when the place was half...

Flying into and out of Heraklion airport is painful. Going in we had to queue outside until passport control opened. Once through and into luggage collection, we queued and queued, and then luggage from two different flights was on the same belt, which took ages to come through. Coming back, the queues to get into the airport were horrendous, the...

Just arrived back from the Fodele Beach and had a fantastic time. We stayed for 4 days in a room overlooking the beach and sea (a superior room, but is worth the upgrade as normal rooms are quite a bit smaller) Really chilled, lovely beach with water sports available. Restaurant was great with different food available every night - the...

We are a family of 4. Our children are aged 8 and 5, there was absolutley nothing for them to do. The food was horrible, if the snack bar hadn't been there me and the children would have gone hungry the whole week!!! My husband on the other hand enjoyed the food. The pool was freezing, our legs were numb...

We got a great last minute deal to this hotel in the October half term. The weather was fantastic- hot and sunny every day. The hotel is a very good 3 star UK standard but do not go if you are expecting 5 Star luxury. Luckily we read the reports and knew what to expect. Location: On a hillside about...

Flight times really grim arrived about 4.30 in morning. Only one member of staff to check in about 20 people! Room really basic beds very uncomfortable and so low to ground?! View from room lovely and weather great. The food is ok but the organisation in the restaurant is non existant. The restaurant manager must of been the laziest member...

My boyfriend & I visited this hotel for a week in October, had a fantastic time, the rooms were exceptionally clean, the staff were exceptionally helpful & friendly & the food was fantastic, also near beach & lovely pool (although pool was verrrry cold!). I would definately recommend this hotel & would visit again.
