The hotel itself is nice. The bungalows are situated in a beautiful garden. The rooms are clean and tidied up every day. However some of the rooms are very small; we occupied two rooms - one in the main building and one bungalow. Both rooms were really small with very limited space for clothes and personal things and no space for suitcases at all.
The food is reasonable. Dinner consists of one menu. We were safisfied, but those who are used to many courses buffet meals would be dissapointed. Breakfast is served in the main building, while dinner is served in the taverna on the beach.
The staff is polite and friendly, but do not expect any extra effort: one member of our family has walking problems after both knee-joint replacement. We repeatedly asked for changing the room on the first floor for any room on the ground floor (in order to avoid the stairs), but we were always politely refused. The reason was that the hotel was full. Yes, of course, it would mean to switch maybe several rooms, but it would not be impossible...
The beach is very nice and clean, the sunbeds are for free, but the access to the sea is steep - not suitable for little children and disabled persons.
The surroundings of the hotel is nothing special. We travelled through the whole Crete during the last two years and the southern coast east of Irapetra is the least interesting part with plastic greenhouses and reeds. In the village itself there is nothing except three small supermarkets and two car rentals (thanks God for them!).
Our final evaluation is mediocre and next time would definitely choose another place.
