Lovely holiday from start to finish. Upon arrival we were greeted by the loveliest staff and explained the way to our room. Our room was a junior suite which was truly amazing. It was modern, the decor was beautiful, cleanliness absolutely spot on. Modern bathroom with a great shower, a living area and a spacious bed. Additional benefits included a smart TV, fridge, safe. Our room had two balcony areas which we were so shocked about! The staff had also left some complimentary snacks for us in the room such as fresh fruit, nuts and also a bottle of wine. This was a lovely touch. There are two pool areas which were both clean and had plenty of sunbeds. We managed to get a bed every time we went to the pool. Pool towels are also available and can be exchanged when required for new ones. One of the pools has a bar offering drinks and snacks/food. Bar near the reception is nice with welcoming and kind staff. There is also entertainment, we arrived on the night of live music and it was wonderful to sit back and enjoy whilst having a drink. We opted in for half board on this stay but did not use it as much. There is some choice and food was nice, however we did prefer to go out for our food. The hotel also offered various trips and excursions which they assisted with booking. We had a little issue with our trip (no fault of the hotel) however they were extremely helpful with assisting us to resolve this. The reception area was modern and someone was always around to help. Location of the hotel was decent- beach was 10 minute walk away, where you can find sunbeds and some lovely places for cocktails and food. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel in case you want to or need to get to places. Plenty of restaurants and bars and also shop across the street. We cannot recommend the Taverna enough- the food was delicious, portions were huge and the staff also offered complimentary desert and drinks to us which was a lovely touch!

Friendly and helpful staff, both in the hotel and restaurant. Soft beds and hot showers in the suites, which are kept lovely and clean. Good position for the beach and for visiting the sights. I would love to come back in the warmer weather for a swim.

The location of this hotel was pretty good, though we didn't get out and see much of Heraklion. The rooms are recently updated and very nicely appointed - comfortable beds and very clean! However, the shower opens into the main room, which was awkward for friends. It would be great for couples and families. We didn't get to use it because it was cool out, but the pool is gorgeous and looked very quiet and enjoyable. Breakfast was marginal at best.

Starting with positives, hotel is clean and well maintained throughout. Nice views from higher floors. Suite was okay, beds fine, shower very good, balcony small. Facilities were good and pool okay but very cold. Stayed bed breakfast and dinner! This is where the experience turns sour!!. Breakfast was akin to prison, not that I have experienced that but I'm guessing? For a four star establishment extremely poor. We have stayed in various 4* across Europe, Meliá, Barcelo, Labrandra to name a few and this was by FAR the worst!!! The dinner was also closer to 2* I would assume. It maybe that there is a restaurant "Petousis" adjacent to the accommodation? Trying to push extra business. However we tried their Al Carte one night and again extremely poor IMO, ended up not paying as could not eat it🤮. Last two days of stay the buffet was closed and they gave us meal vouchers for the restaurant with a half board menu. Which to our surprise was actually okay. Now if that was the half board experience I would not be writing this review. So to summarise, 4* facilities with prison food at the buffet, I'll let you decide!!!! My honest opinion is franchise margin based food quality with a public surface face🤔. Also would not return based on this, food is fundamental to your daily experience.

This hotel cannot be faulted! Situated in the popular sea - side resort of Ammoudara, Gazi , only 8 km from the international Airport of Heraklion. There are tourist shops and tavernas on the main thoroughfare, with the hotel entrance located in a side street leading direcly to a beautiful and huge sandy beach. The staff are highly trained and happy to help and the level of cleanliness is superb. Bedrooms are large and airy, with high ceilings. Aircon is efficient and not intrusive. The bedrooms have a funky feel with the stone hewn sink and huge mirror open to the room. Access to the very large shower (great power) is also from the bedroom. However, don't let this put you off, it gives a charming 'boutiquey' feel to the room, which is tastefully decorated. Food from the buffet style restaurant is fresh and varied. The Chef is fantasticand all the serving staff reflect the high standards instilled by the Manager. There is a Taverna attached to the hotel, should you wish to avail of it. The pool areas are immaculate. There are private pools for the suites and two large pools plus a children's pool for guests. The gym area is small but perfectly adequate. My husband and I will be returning to this gem!

lovely hotel, very comfortable everyone so helpful the cleaners, bar staff, reception, pool staff, manager everyone was just so great and friendly, only complaint we had was first night was given a lovely big room but balcony was opposite car park which had petrol fumes and cars in and out it was late but next day said to recetion and within a couple of hours given another rooom slightley smaller but just as lovely, but as we dont sit in bedroom but use balcony alot much better view, apart from that will return as so relaxing and also have good policy for sunbeds all have labels about leaving towels on sunbeds for too long, but we never had a problem as always plenty of beds around as it was october and fairly quiet, like I said will go again.

The staff, location and everything was lovely. You certainly feel like family when you stay there and the music evenings were worth going to. I was a solo traveller so felt very safe and comfortable being there. The management were always attentive and would come and chat. It was very close to the beach and shopping strip including buses. Everything was at your doorstep. The restaurant food was amazing. I have stayed there a couple of times now and would go back again and again. The rooms were very comfortable.

The best hotel I’ve stayed at. The staff are absolutely lovely and always attentive. Kostas cocktails are brilliant!! 🍸 Be sure to order lunch from the pool bar - best chicken salad ever! 🥗 All in all a lovely atmosphere and the location is great. Don’t forget to book excursions with the hotels - there’s so many to choose from :)
