What a wonderful place!!!! The welcome was very friendly. The staff were always helpful and good fun. The food on half board was very varied and a very good standard. Sorry we didn't try the taverna as that looked very nice too.
The hotel was listed as 4 star. The main building and villas with private pools definitely lived up to this standard. The self catering apartments were probably 3 star but still fairly comfortable and still had wonderful views.
The hotel is on a hill with steep roads / paths to the main road and Elounda. There is a minibus at 10am and 3pm, also taxis for 5 euros from the village. (Beware a lot of these will only drive as far as reception, so you still have a steep walk to your room.) There is also a steep walk down to the main hotel and restaurant area. We enjoyed these walks as the scenery is beautiful, there are lots of plants and insects to watch and it helped us to keep the weight off. My 68 year old Mum found it very hard going.
We would definitely go back. Don't think my Mum would even though she loved the views.
Thank you to everyone for making our stay so memorable.
