We have stayed 1 week in this hotel in the beginning of september with our 2 children (3 and 5).
Before our arrival I had my doubts about this hotel because of several bad reviews on this site. Now I'm glad we have listened to our touroperator because we have had a splendid holiday!
At arrival, the staff welcomed us very warm and friendly.
We stayed in a family duplex room. The room is practical and spacious. I loved our little terrace and the 3 sunbeds which belonged to our room. So when our youngest one did her afternoon sleep we still could relax in our backyard.
Our children loved the kids swimming pool with the 2 slides. For a kids pool it is relatively big and the depth is 85 cm. So even when they can't swim, they can stand right up and play in the water.
After a few days they discovered Grecoland. I was a bit afraid to leave them because they only speak Dutch, but the girls of Grecoland did everything to feel them welcome, especially Georgia.
For us, one of the highlights on a holiday are the meals. We stayed in half board, so we had breakfast and dinner in the hotel. Both were of a very high quality and really delicious. Occasionally we have eaten in the Barbarossa restaurant and the brasserie near the swimming pool. Over there you can eat fresh fish or greek specialities. We liked them both. Again the staff was very / extremely friendly.
Drinks at the restaurants and the bars are normally priced (you can't expect you will pay the same price in a 5 star hotel as in a local pub or restaurant).
And last but not least, at the beach and the beachbar we enjoyed the sunset with a nice cocktail.
Overall we loved the hotel. We stayed here with two small childeren but also couples can have a relaxed vacation. There's plenty of space and things to do separated from the kids area.
We will defintively come back to this hotel when we visit Crete again.
