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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Absolutely amazed by the stuff, food service, view, offer- all of it. We had tried all delicious food what they have, fruit shakes, beers all was wonderful. The prices are ok. And as for sunbeds 15eur if you take sun umbrella and two beds, from...second raw. And if you take the first raw than it s 20eur all of it. We have had a lot of days at this bar and at the seaside what they have in front. For sure we are recommending them. And we say hi and loads of Greetings from Serbia.

I was on Holiday with my Kids and Grandkids looking for a friendly Beach Bar - finding one in Crete is hard due to allthe alliclusive hotels taking all the beaches. Anyway, found this treasure and over the our stay of 2 weeks, we went...5 times. The facilities on Beach were clean and comfortable - but what really made this place, were the staff - they were incredable, helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Coffee was good, Food was very tasty and we will be back again - thank you for making our Holiday with your smiles, service and just your awesomeness. The kids absolutely loved making their massive sand world :)More

Having explored the island we wanted to spend the final days of our holiday relaxing on the beach. This (sand) beach was a 15 min walk from our hotel in Malia and this bar's staff was very friendly. After spending a day here we kept...coming back because of the great service, the (red) beds were very comfortabel as well. Food-wise the baguettes were okay, nothing special but the gyros plate and waffle (with ice cream) were great!More

Red sunbeds -20 €, crowded, toilet without toilet paper and only the one for gents was open. Sparkling water & tzaziki missing, food was ok-ish but not various. The only positive things are the beach boys - very nice and smiley!

Today I visit the restaurant dolphin beach bar with my husband. First of all we waited for over 1 hour to get our food, the food came and It was absolutely awful. The pasta tasted like water with cream and the fries wasn’t cooked. After...we ate the food that we only ate because we were very hungry from waiting I told the owner that everything was so bad he didn’t even answer. He didn’t even say “sorry”. I have never in my life given any restaurant I bad review but this was next level!!More
