Our family stayed at this hotel in August, 2012. We enjoyed our 10-days stay. Of course, the rooms ask for renovation, the beach towels are to be changed, Spa is very primitive but service level is very high in reception, restaurants and so on. There are a lot of swimming pools. We stayed in Garden View bungalows. There was the separate small swimming pool in the backyard of one of our room. We liked the beach area because of sand. Animation level is not so bad. The food quality and the prices in the restaurants are very perfect.

We choose this hotel for one reason - sandy beach, not deep sea. It was a perfect for my child. We enjoyed animation activities and for first time my child was ready to stay with Julia ( animator) at the sea side without me. ( I could read a book!)
All pools were cold, even in SPA, but gardens, view and nice service was so good.
We had HB, but enjoyed lunch at the beach restaurant - Anna ( waitress) were so kind with us and always helped to pick up that, what we would like more.
It might be hard for families with baby prams, couse there are so many stairs.

My boyfriend and I had a great romantic holiday at Ikaros. The highlight of the property is the fantastic landscaping and wide array of pools - allowing us to choose if we wanted to be in a more social or secluded area. Although we were situated in the main building, our room was still very clean, modern and the design made a good use of the space. The stone work of the entire complex was unique and added lots of ambiance to the property. The location is also just far enough from the hectic Malia to create a serene atmosphere. We'd very happily go back again!

This luxury Hotel and Resort is a top spot for families - also with small children. The hotel manager is first in the morning and last in the evening: he is everywhere, he talks with everyone he helps if you have a problem -wathever it is - there is no problem for him. He is absolut fantastic.
The hotel is very clean, the staff is very friendly, its very relaxing. There are great pools incl. pools for small children, playground - and there is a wonderful beach: you can walk slowly in to the sea - it's not deep in the beginning.
The food is very good: in the great restaurant there is a large joice of everything and every day an other theme. A must is the "Souvlaki" at the Crete evening. Delicious!

Room Tip: For couples without children we recommend the Seafront Suites with private pool. For families the...

Very clean and beautiful hotel. We travelled with our 2 yr old son and went all inclusive. The staff were amazing throughout. From the much needed cold drink when we arrived at reception to the fastest ever check in, great room ( no 215), great pools and kids pools and playground, lovely sandy beach, drinks ready at our table when we ate ( they always remembered what we liked) and the onsite shop, relaxing spa, super fast service and excellent choice of food. Yes we didn't come across any Brits but everyone was so welcoming. Perfect!

This hotel in a resot with a long history and they know how to put the accent on this issue. Nice location, relaxing, in my opinion, cosy and welcoming. Location si good so you can reach different places. Renting a car is a good option as well if you don't want to book specific trips offered by the travel agencies. A must is a Santorini trip, which I recommend it because is a unique island and worth to be visited.
Rooms are clean, bathroom looks good, some of the rooms are equiped with a computer. Wi-fi is provided.

Room Tip: I believe the bangalows look more cosy and tidy
