My husband and I stayed at this hotel from 25 August 2013 to 1 September. The rooms were clean, the view was beautiful, the staff was kind and helpful. We enjoyed the food, not very divers but tasty and traditional. I enjoyed the Greek yoghurt, the salads and sweets and my husband liked the meat and the meals containing shrimps, calamaris and other specialities.
There is a beach right in front of the hotel, it's small but beautiful. We also enjoyed a delicious coffee at Votsalo, the bar near the beach. It has a few free sunbeds for customers, so you can buy yourself a drink, take a bath, enjoy the sun, take photographs and everything.
Almyros beach is 300 metres away from the hotel, is a nice sandy beach and at the end of it you can see Almyros river flowing intro the sea. We rented a car and visited Agios Nikolaos, the lake is gorgeous, you should see it too. You can also visit Gournia, the Palm Beach of Vai or Heraklion.
The pool is clean and there are animators that entertain both adults and children. There's a party near the pool every evening, starting 22.00 - 00.00. It's a bit loud, so avoid the rooms near the pool if you like to sleep early. Also, you should keep in mind that there are lots of stairs to climb, so if you don't feel like doing it ask for a room at a lower level. The rooms that are at the top have a better view. The complex is not very modern, is rather a mix between traditional and modern and the area is quite wild (vegetation and landscape).
