So I went to Crete with my family, end of May 2013.
As the hotel is/was not so popular and almost empty luckily we were given a room number right when we got there. We had two rooms, each for two people. For each room we were given only one card, which was the first thing that confused us, The second one was their "All Inclusive" which was all inclusive at all. All you could get was a beer and wine (mixed with water) and some non alcoholic beverages. For everything else you had to pay. Also Metaxa was included, but for "original" one you had to pay, because for all inclusive they were pouring it from some different bottle which didn't look like the original bottle. After that we all felt really bad and sick.
The beach - terrible. There were big stones everywhere. As I've seen in another hotels (was walking along the beach) their staff was cleaning the stones permanently. Also had a hard time in water - stones again. Without "sea schoes" it's almost impossible. Also the beach seemed to be "wild". In other hotel beach had a life guard, flags etc. while this was completely unsecured - if something happens to you while swimming no one will ever find out...
Another terrible thing - staff was angry all the time, I don't think I've seen them smile a lot. They weren't helpful and while asking them for help they turned around and didn't answer my question
For the beach volleyball - everything was "prepared" but again there were big stones so it was impossible to play without a shoes. And playing in shoes on sand is not so comfortable either.
Food was terrible. Everyday the same and if you want to try Greek you have to go to Tavern nearby. Salads with peas and carrot, one kind of meet and fish (everyday the same kind just cooked differently). And what have left from Breakfast we had for Lunch and so on. Food was without any papers saying what were we eating - it'll be a secret forever then :) So I always took something not even knowing what I am going to eat.
Rooms - quite big, with kichen, broken TV (in both rooms), old bed and old furniture which had that smell of old things. Towels were changed every two days. Beach towel was not given - everyone had to have their own.
I hope everyone should think more before going to this hotel - this wasn't my first time in Greece and from my earlier experience I have to say that Greece has better hotels than this in the same price category.
