My best friend and I stayed here for a week In June. Staff were great, room was nice and clean, pool area was very good. Had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, not to many kids running around, perfect place for couples, will be returning this year again.

If you want to feel really luxurious in Crete - this is your choice. This hotel is expensive. But hey you really are getting what you've paid for.

It's amazing how this hotel is built on the hill with endless stone-paved paths between bungalows. Here - a pool, there - a beach, over there - another pool, and here - a restaurant. Or bar. Or pool. Or fantastic view. Sea or mountains. Whatever you need.

Staff is great and really cheerful.

Despite the fact that you can see a lot of people during breakfast, you don't feel those crowds on the beach or at the pools. The area is so huge that the people just disappear there.

Also: it's super close to the lovely street with pubs and restaurants.

We've been upgraded to the bungalow with the big terrace and jaccuzi (thank you Mr. Manager). It was supposed to be a "garden-view-bungalow", but one look through the main door and you can see the blue horizon. It was awesome.

It's one of the hotels that makes you want to come back. And I really hope we will.

Maybe we would change one thing: adding more umbrellas at the pools would be a great idea, as not everybody want to have sunbaths everyday :)

But let's face it. This place is a heavenly resort.

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!
