Having read all the reviews of this hotel before booking, we were not disappointed with our choice. We booked a swim up room and it was amazing. The room was lovely, biggest bed I've ever slept in and the bathroom with whirlpool bath and separate shower room was just superb. The swim up room came with personal sunbeds opposite the room so there was always a guaranteed bed but having said that, there were always beds free around all the pools and on the beach(and that was peak August holiday time.) All the pools were lovely and there were never many people in them. The beach was just a few steps away and the sea was warm.
We were on half board basis and the food in the main restaurant was always varied, well cooked and presented with a huge amount of choice. I particularly liked the show cooking, always delicious. We ate well at breakfast and didn't eat again until the evening. We did buy the 'all inclusive' drinks upgrade package and this was well worth it and I would recommend doing that as it was cost effective.
The only thing that we could criticise was the evening entertainment. It is very low key which isn't a problem but there were limited places to relax and drink of an evening if you were fed up with the resident singers who appear most nights. However, there is a bowling centre a short walk away which was fun and taxis into Chania (very lively at night) cost about 10 euros.
Staff all amazing and were welcoming with lots remembering your room number and choice of drinks.
If you have the chance, spoil yourself in the spa which again was just fantastic..a treatment to remember in beautiful surroundings in the spa.
All in all, a fantastic holiday resort for couples who want a 5 star experience in luxurious surroundings but who want a quiet and relaxed holiday.
