This sounds quirky, but as soon as we got out of the car, after driving from Chania and stopping at Knossos, we felt peace. Louise greeted us in a warm and welcoming style. She made our daughter instantly feel welcomed, but letting her know that the pool was awaiting her arrival. She had us escorted to our suite and was waiting there upon our arrival. We then strolled to the pool and bar to have a relaxing cocktail.
The décor is superb. There were many pieces of furniture that I would have liked to purchase; modern rooms mixed with antiques.
A private beach that you were driven to with a private taxi.
Anna and her daughter, the Inn Keepers, were so gracious and accommodating.
Dinner on the higher terrace was romantic, even with our 10 year old along.
We would definitely return to this hotel. Small, beautiful and very accommodating.
We were leaving very early on our last day in order to drive to Heraklion to catch our ferry to Paros. Louise made sure that there was a wake-up call and a butler to deliver piping hot coffee and fresh squeezed OJ. The rest of the breakfast was brought over the evening before and was placed in the refrigerator for our early morning wake-up and departure.
Everything that was arranged was arranged with a no fuss type of demeanor making one feel like they were very special and just simply deserved this superb treatment. Something like, "why drive to the private beach when I can simply call for a taxi to take you there whenever you are ready. When you are ready to return, just let Maria know to telephone a taxi back." This was arranged by Maria, who was at the reception desk.
While talking with Maria, we commented that it was a hot day and she immediately turned on the A/C. We were quite comfortable with the temperature, but she thought we wanted it cooler.
The morning breakfast buffet was prepared and presented quite eliguently.
You will not be disappointed. We had a garden suite; although not with a private pool or seaview, we were not disappointed.
