My partner and I have just returned from a week's holiday staying in Suite Andromeda.
We arrived via private transfer very late at night to find a welcome pack in our room consisting of a lovely bottle of red wine, with various cold meats and cheeses. The suite was a perfect size for the two of us, large flat screen tv, jacuzzi bath and probably the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. As it was dark we werent quite sure what view we would get from our balcony until the morning.
We awoke to find lovely sea and mountain views and headed off to breakfast. As others have mentioned the continental breakfast was ok, however I've yet to be bowled by french bread and pain au chocolat wherever I have been so that could just be me ! We did however opt for a cooked breakfast on 2 occasions which was well worth it.
The main pool area although appearing to be at full capacity, was very quiet, almost to the point of making you very conscious of enjoying yourself, which is where I agree with previous comments on the unfortunate lack of atmosphere around the pool and bar area which is a real shame, more so in the evening, as we would have liked to have stayed around the bar after our meal, but we would have always been the only couple.
With regards to the main pool view ( or lack of it) We did find the photos from another guest useful showing the other hotels and buildings as it did prepare us in advance. We weren't concerned about telegraph poles, however the pool photos on their website could be viewed as quite misleading as none show the main pool in daylight only the Villa pools.
We ate at Argo 4 nights and on all occasions had the most fantastic food we have ever eaten. We did venture out to eat in Elounda, Ag Nic, and Plaka however were very dissapointed and couldnt wait to get back to eat by the pool.
As all others have mentioned, the staff are fantastic, especailly Theodore at reception, nothing was too much trouble, exactly what you would expect from a resort of this standard.
