First class hotel, excellent service from all managers and staff throughout our weeks stay.
Don't bother taking shampoo, shower gel, soap etc as they are supplied and are excellent quaility. Don't bother taking beach towels they are also supplied. Save the room in your case for Olive Oil, Metaxa, Greek Delight, Nougat and handbags!!!!! Chania is a shoppers paradise. Easily accessible by bus outside the hotel . Tickets purchased from the hotel for 1.50 each way. Almost a door to door service.
The hotel is the best we have ever stayed. Perfect facilities and the cleanliness in all rooms and public areas is second to none.
The food in the Deep Blue restaurant has so much choice you could not fail to be impressed. Such wonderful selections. Dinners are formal. Ladies dress to impress and gentleman need to note shorts are not permitted in the evening. Service at the tables by all staff for drinks and your room number for the charge then it's buffet all the way.
Breakfasts include bubbly if you so wished, and the food choices were incredible. The fresh fruit, dried fruit, Greek yoghourts, honey and nuts will be long remembered. Followed by either traditional English or smoked salmon scrambled eggs and croissants. The sweet yoghourt pie is a triumph and has left me trying to find the recipe. Pastries and cakes a plenty and they are all baked on site and so fresh and tasty.
The pool and the beach are incredible. Service at the Aqua bar and the beach bar is very attentive. Prices are high but you are paying for the location as well as the service on top of the drinks. It is cheaper at local bars naturally but you can't beat a cocktail around the pool.
We have never been to Crete before and feel like this 'Couples only' hotel has really made the best impression. It's a truly romantic Island paradise and we will definitely return.
We requested a sea view (room 708) it was a sea view but quite close to the road. The noise on the balcony but not thankfully in the room, was noticeable. If booking I would prefer a room opposite to the sea rather than side ways on. The air conditioning was wonderful making sleeping a dream. The super king sized bed was fabulous and sheets and towels are changed daily, though there is a green option card, if you want to be environmentally friendly and can last another day without a change.
We went on the Winery and Olive press tour. This was wonderful. Much better than we ever imagined. Expert guide and a small minibus so we experienced authentic Crete. Great lunch at the winery. Be sure to take a camera as the scenery was spectacular. 59 euros each but worth every cent.
The finale of our holiday was the black and white themed evening organised by Tash the entertainment rep in the lobby bar, lounge. Ladies this is a dressy affair and time to turn up the style. It coincided with our last night on holiday. The entertainment by D n A was sophisticated jazz, blues, popular music 'a la' Amy Winehouse, Michael Buble, Paloma Faith etc Not cheesy at all and appealed to a wide age group. They were only covering for a few weeks and returned to England this week. If managers from the hotel are reading this you need to contract them permanently as they suit the clientele and the vibe of the hotel perfectly. The managers were all introduced and we toasted them with champagne and mini petit fours. It was a perfect, perfect evening and it concluded with wonderful fireworks.
Hotel, staff, food and drinks, location on the beach and proximity to Chania, highly recommended. We can't wait to return. Lucky you if you have booked to go.
