“Sea holiday in Creta- wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

We are staying here now, I strongly recommend this hotel for a vacation at the sea. Very friendly and nice personnel, animators from Italy who are really nice, a lot of fun with children and with adults as well, very nice rooms, great service, nice food , when the maitre d' hotel saw that I did not eat meat, he came up and asked me if I am a vegetarian or want to have some special menu. Several restaurants and bars on the territory. Very nice, the food is tasty and there is a variety of fish, meat, vegetables, cheeses, fruit and deserts. Everything is fresh. Fitness club, water sports, wonderful spa.
Several swimming pools , the sea is very clean though now the water is a bit cold stil. Mini club for kids, stretching, volleyball, shows every night and a disco near the sea. The territory is very beautiful, a lot of flowers everywhere. Beautiful villas in a Greek style with red or blue balconies. MReally nice place for families as well as for couples because you can easily get privacy here. Hersonesus is very close, buses come often or taxi is 7 euro. I am very pleased and will definitely come back because it is a pleasure to stay here.

Our group of 34 persons from the Baltics visited this hotel from 2nd till 9th October. We are very pleased with the high level service in the hotel.

We have enjoyed the taste of greek food in the general restaurant, there was also possibility to visit some other restaurant free of charge once a week.

Special thanks to the animation team, the sport activities were great and funny!

There were evening shows every night, and we liked dances and a fairy tale a lot.

But some "Cabare shows" had immodest jokes so we would recommend to make some corrections there that the visitors of all ages would really enjoy the show (specially children and elderly people).

Room Tip: the rooms are designed in the style of "Cretan village", so you need to take this into con...

We spent here one week - two adults with 1-year old child. Honestly speaking - it is difficult to write all positives, because there were more than negatives. Definitely we can recommend to families with children - several pools, attractions, great animation team (for older and also for younger), beach belongs directly to hotel. Quiet (if you do not live close to amphiteater) and simply but stylish accommodation. All inclusive is good.
High share of Russian people, but we did not find them to be extraordinary rude - I think You can find idiot inside all nationalities. In children pool we did not face any conflict (e.g. parent taking toys from other child to his/her child).
Staff nice and helpful, understanding several languages (incl. Eng, Rus). Towels for free to the beach, everything on beach for free.
Few things to be an outstanding place for holiday with children:
1. The entrance to the sea is good very close to molo, but it is about 5 meters narrow. Along all resort's beach, the stones are inside. Shoes recommended, anyway it is not comfortable for anybody. (on the other hand, some neighbour resorts even do not have any sand beach)
2. The food in main restaurant is after two or three days like routine - grilled chicken, turkey, pork, chicken, turkey, pork. The second grill - perfect sainthfish. Pasta - very good, repeating after three days. Souvlaki, gyros only once in week. Missed beef. The cakes were outstanding. If you like fruits and vegetables, You will be satisfied. Food - and I must say - good food is everywhere.
3. Pool bar closing too early
4. As a golf player I must say - the minigolf is very poor

We have recently returned from this lovely hotel. Many, many positive features.
Idyllic setting, overlooking the crystal clear water.
Several pools- some more lively than others, so you can participate in all the activities on offer , if you wish, or you can chill out at a quieter pool.
Always plenty of food on offer. Three restaurants. The taverna, in particular, had lovely food, although it was very similar food on offer each week. ( The other restaurants are buffet service with a vast array of food on offer. You won't go hungry!)
The animation team are FABULOUS! So genuinely friendly. They worked really hard to keep us entertained and were so enthusiastic.
The rooms are fine. We had a small family room, and it is definitely small, but perfectly adequate for what we needed. ( The view over the sea from our balcony was amazing). You can pay more for a larger room.
I really can't recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff, in particular, are just so incredibly warm and friendly. We were all made to feel very welcome, and we will definitely return.
We have travelled to many hotels over the years, and I know you can't please all the people all of the time, but what this hotel has got is such a variety of activities, places to chill out, bars and eating places, that you don't feel that you are having a package holiday- you can tailor the holiday to what you want from it. Go for it!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view- even the smaller rooms have a sea view ( ours was 391)

We are well rested at this hotel in July 2011. I liked everything except the rocks into the sea. Because these children did not want to swim in the sea, but they are great fun on the water's Hill! Stones, water slides, the hotel grounds you can see in my little video.

If you buy special shoes for swimming in the sea, there are no problems.

We spent a week at the Cretan Village, in August.
Great beach, not sandy one, but it is nice though, and the water was very clear and warm. The beach is small but it was not a problem to find a seat.
The village is nice, all white with beautiful flowers
There is a lot ot pools, a great one for small children with toys, etc.
The animation team is amazing, great energy with a show every evening.
We had a room with sea view, nothing exceptionnal, a little old.
The food was good, not excellent, but the main restaurant was very crowded, I prefered to eat to other places. For the breakfast, there was a very bad organisation for creps, very long if you want one...
Note that a majority of clients (80%) are russian/ukrainian, with a lot of children. So if you want a quiet place maybe this is not the good place for a romantic stay.
