We stayed at this hotel for one night in mid-October. On check in, make sure to ask for a non-smoking room (if you don't smoke!) - these rooms are all on the second floor. We had booked an executive sea-view room, and were upgraded to a VIP suite as it was a non-smoking room. The fixtures and fittings in the room were top-notch, with bathrobes, slippers and plush towels. The bed was one of the comfiest I have ever slept in! The swimming pool on the fifth floor is very small, but a nice location to sit and take in the views of the city. The gym is well-equipped. When we went out for dinner in the evening, the room was turned down, with chocolates on the pillow. The free bottle of water on arrival was also a nice touch. The hotel is in a great location for the port - literally a five minute walk from door to door. The hotel staff were friendly and attentive at all times. The breakfast was a huge feast. There were fruit, continental and cooked options, plus numerous baked goodies. For me, the breakfast catered a little too much for a sweet tooth, but there's no denying that it was a good spread. Heraklion itself is a commercial city, which lacks the character of Chania and Rethymno.
