I will start by saying that people should book 5 star accomadation and pay the price if that's what they expect, having said that, I honestly feel that Blue Dreams should be upgraded to at least a 3 star. This time around, family members joined us in the middle of our fortnight and they also wish to go back next year as they had such a wonderful time.
We were, literally, welcomed with open arms and made to feel like genuine friends and part of the Blue Dreams family. This time we took the half board option and we were so glad that we did as the food is fantastic and the portions cannot be compaired to anywhere else. We ate food that would be extremely expensive, or even, unavailable, in the UK such as Sea Bass and Sword fish, all included in the half board menu, and cooked to perfection everytime.
Our room was cleaned everyday and our linen was reguarly changed. No problems here at all. Yes the rooms are basic but so are all place in Crete and other Greek islands. This is what we expect. There are ample utensils to make tea and coffee, which is all we wanted, afterall, we don't go on holiday to cook, especially when such wonderful food is available on the premises. I will also say that my partner is obsessive about cleaning and could not fault the standards here, this time, or on our last visit. If the bad reviews were true, and the place was dirty and run by a horrible family then we would not choose to go there twice, and certainly not be planning to go again next year.
People say that Litsa is rude if you don't take the half board option or drink at the bar, well, all I can say is, how can she make conversation if you don't eat or drink there? On the contrary, she goes out of her way to be warm and welcoming to everyone, and it's up the individual if they want to accept that or not, but personally, I'd say it's their loss.
For a calm, relaxing holiday, with lots of fun and laughter mixed in, I recommend Blue Dreams with all my heart to couples, families and even people on their own. We befriended a lovely lady who was a single mother, and had been there several times with her children, always feeling safe, and surely that says a lot about this place.
It was truly heartbreaking to leave and we cannot wait to start thinking about our next visit next year. It is a holiday that's like home from home and don't desire to go anywhere else for our summer breaks.
Love to Litsa, George and all the family
