This gem of a hotel was a total surprise - exceeding our every expectation and we can't recommend it highly enough..
The owner, Nikos, and his similarly proficiet team, are exceedingly well organized and attentive. The taxis were on strike in Crete for our entire stay - you would never know - a private airport transfer was organized too and from the airport (not so easy drawing upon contacts for a 4o room hotel!).
Our room faced the ocean and overlooked the pool - although not large in size, was very stylish and well equipped: top class toiletries, twice-daily towel change, fresh fruit every day ...and a fully equipped kitchenette including coffee-press.
The restaurant food was the best we experienced in our 2 week trip to Greece and easily the best value.
Ammos organized a private island tour for us one day - highlights included the superb guide (Rea), a trip to a well-know Crete ceramic artist, driving through the gorges to the south coast (standing-sands bay with beautiful sea etc) and a tour of Reythmeon - great day.
Even though we were without kids and there were many, many families - we have to say that it never felt unpleasantly out of control in terms of kid-noise!
The beach was very nice (although quite a few locals at the weekends), the water clear and the loungers comfortable (and religiously retained for guest use only).
We were able to use the gym in the Grecotel next door for 10 euros each - it was quite well equipped and generally not very busy.
Above all, it is the resort staff that make this place special - they are knowledgeable, efficient, authentic and genuinely pleased to have you as a guest. Go there!
