I booked the holiday July 2012 as we had been to other Atlantica hotels before in Cyprus and Rhodes and our expectations were greatly exceeded. This is a beautiful hotel in an ideal location .
The differences started before we got to the hotel with the completion of our registration forms on the coach When you arrive at the hotel there is no queuing just a cold drink ! We were escorted to our room by the guest relations manager the bags made there own way there .
We had booked a sea view room but were upgraded to a swim up room 148 excellent . The room was excellent it had a glass bathroom wall which took us by surprise but there is a curtain that can be drawn if required. The staff were excellent Stellios Eva Alexis Amelina and Melina to name a few all the staff were helpful and the manager could be seen regularly walking around and complex .
We had a problem with our hot water one evening a phone call to reception and within 10 minutes maintenance were there and it was resolved
The Holiday Rep suggested a walk to Chania saying it would take 45 mins I wouldn't recommend it . It took us over an hour and other than the first to bays you then had to walk inland and it wasn't the most scenic route.
The entertainment was low key as we expected....but who needs to play games during the day.
The resident Duo 2 of Diamonds were excellent Cassie has an amazing voice and Connor is an excellent guitarist . We particularly enjoyed the blankets on the beach event !
The food is excellent we only booked half board which was enough for us We did however do the beverage package nearly all the holiday there is a minimum of 3 days for this option.
There is a policy for removing towels from unattended sun beds before 10 am this was quite strictly enforced at the beginning of the holiday but a bit lax towards the end. May I suggest that this is enforced more rigorously as when the pool attendant was not there guests were selfishly putting there towels on beds and not returning for some hours. There are plenty of sun beds on the beach where towels are not removed
We really had a great time..so much in fact that I have already booked today for next June.
