“Not 5* , entertainment staff go home !!”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

We were at the seaside resort and spa one week ago for 8 day because of our anniversary the hotel
Is located on a cliff which its the second best thing there , and i think that u asking your self , so what is the first best thing at this hotel ,,,, !!! ! ?, the best thing is the ( food ) , alot of kind of food every thing just make a wish , the food was so fantastic and very delicious and everytime we ate at the seaside we would not want to think that the holiday going to finish some time , the rooms is under the standard , the pools so good , the snack bar pool side is great , The pizza at the oven out of the resturant is one of the teasty pizzas that i ate in my life , the entertainment staff are so poor they doesnt made a good program and every night put a big stereo music at the bar and don't do anything just sitting with the female guest's of the hotel and bla bla bla bla , i was at another hotel Ll inclusive and it wasn't like this hotel don't care about the people who really came to enjoy ...so replace them --- but as one who love to eat the money that i paid is worth the food i ate lol..
Enjoy.

This was our second visit to the Seaside and once again we were not disappointed. The food in the hotel was superb with a tremendous choice at every meal. The Greek sweets were particularly good. The only downside was the Chinese restaurant which was not up to the standard of our previous visit. The staff were all helpful and attentive, in particular the main bar staff and the waiters in the dining room. Our room was spacious and clean, while not being over luxurious. The views from all parts of the hotel are stunning. We will be back again soon and perhaps by this time the broadband will have improved.

I'm staying in this hotel for a one week vacation, the hotel has beautiful views to sea from everywhere, it is the largest hotel plus. Room was enough big, but not 5 star standart, the bed was broken and over staying time, it is not repaired. TV in room was old generation, not flat screen. But keep in mind that this is not a luxury 5-star hotel. The hotel area is tidy and beautiful with a lot of pools- lazy and active pool. Food was good and tasty and very tasty sweet cakes. All inclusive alcohol was not so good, wine and beer was ok,, but local spirits like wisky, brandy was not very good, but it is possible to purchase for additional cost of any import alcohol. The hotels beach was clean and beautiful. Overall i have nice rest at the hotel, the price what i paid for hotel complies with the quality.

The hotel is not too young, rooms are not modern, but clean. Towels are changing every day, mini bar every second day, air condition works properly.

Good points:
Amazing view from every part of the hotel.
Service, guys in restaurants and bars are very friendly and professional. The best girls in pool bar - Alexandra and Lobby bar - Go Go (she does the best coffee in the world!)
Excellent food! A LOT to choice - everyone can enjoy.
The hotel has rent a car point, good prices and helpful guy there.

Bad points:
The hotel is located away from Agia Pelagia, you can go there by foot (go to the stairs opposite the hotel and go up, there is the way, you don't have to go by main road - I don't know why ladies on the reception give false information that you have to go by the road... by the way they don't seem to be nice). Or you can go there by bus - 2.5E pp one way, this is ridiculous in the 5star hotel you have to pay for a bus.
The animation... very poor, they don't care about people, give you a ball and play water polo, no one count scores or anything, and three animations guys play darts in the same time... They don't take a part in their job. They drink all day and night
with guests - maybe it's allowed... but doesn't look good.
Drinks from 23pm to 1 am you have to pay. 5star hotel!
No playground for kids.


We recommend this hotel, but not like a 5star and not for this price.
But rent a car and go to see Crete, especially Balos Lagoon and The Dourakis Winery!

it was our 1st holiday together and it was amazing. we booked a superior double sea view room and the view was beautiful. we were in the centre of the complex, close to both pools and bars and less than 5 min walk from the beach. the animation staff were friendly but unobtrusive. we loved the set up of the quiet pool and the fun of the lively pool. the food was excellent and varied(the diet starts today) i would recommend this hotel to anyone but be aware as its built on the side of a cliff there are a lot of stairs and slopes.

Room Tip: we had room 229 centrally located but still quiet and after a walk round the complex we think we had...
