Due to having to relocate we got to stay here for one night. All in all good. The family room was spacious, and with a good sized balcony, all inclusive was pretty comprehensive (I was a little let down by a cold cooked breakfast, even though the food was under heat lamps). The resort is nice and you are on a lovely sandy strip of beach. The main pool is spacious and many activities were still running. Particularly handy as there is a regular bus route from straight outside of the hotel in to Herakleion which enabled us to visit the museum and go out for dinner. Certainly more lively than our previous hotel but I expect the location has a lot to do with that.

Very good hotel for families. Superb employees. A shoutout to Sara from kidsclub! Food was good. In the all in buffet every other day some other theme. Ala carte restaurant nice option. Some point of improvement: keep the homeless dogs out of the hotel. Potential risk for kids.

Front desk personnel could care less about you. Rooms are like Motel 6 in the states. Rooms have a safe but it costs extra to use it. If we could leave we would but everything is booked. We regret coming to Crete.

Second year in an row and we only have kind words for this hotel! The staff is always smiling and willing to help us with our every need and the rooms are extra clean. At the restaurants even the pickiest will find something to eat as the variety and quality of the meals is excellent. Especially the children are never going to get bored, as the game in the pools is continuous and the animators give their best.

This hotel is located in the vicinity of a polluting industrial facility in Ammoudara, Crete. Smog from several tall blast furnaces was visible regularly, especially on the windy days. We were simply amazed by the mere existence of a hotel in such a place. How is this possible (allowed by the Greek authorities)? There is no point in writing about the decrepit look of this hotel. Major investments would be required to bring the facilities up to date. Our junior family suite was in fact a double room with a dwarf annex (ca. 2-3 sqm) hosting a very small improvised bunk bed. Very friendly employees did compensate these shortcomings to an extent. The all-inclusive food was good, although not typical of a real 5-star hotel. Same for the drinks. Not recommended, especially for families. Will surely not come back.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Allow us to mention that the hotel was built prior the electricity company (with allowance by the Geek authorities!) We thank you that you clearly emphasize the power station again, which is mentioned in so many prior reviews. One should be aware of the location to spend your holiday in this location!

Lovely facility. The lobby is spacious. The outdoor grounds are beautiful. The indoor bar was nice; I loved the self serve water spout. We were there off season so it was cold. No beach or pools for us. It rained the whole time. We did get to walk around a bit. They upgraded us to a balcony room with a view which was very nice. They had an ingenious expandable drying rack mounted to the wall of the balcony which would come in handy at a beach resort. Several traveling soccer teams were staying at the hotel while we were there. Ugh! Restless kids without enough chaperones trapped indoors by the rain. It was awful. When I complained to the front desk the poor clerk looked like she was bracing herself for an internet worthy Karen rant but that is not me. I simply asked if there was anything they could do to compensate us for all the kids running around. The kids were loud & rude; on 2 occasions I was almost knocked over. None of that was the hotel's fault but it colored out stay. Because I was reasonable, not demanding everything, management sent a bottle of wine & a fruit basked which quite thoughtful & appreciated. The food was your typical bland all inclusive / college cafeteria / cruise ship buffet fare. It was probably the worst stuff we ate during 2 weeks in Greece but it's family friendly. Your kids will eat it without complaint. It's not that is was bad but it was just boring, lots of carbs & other items that can survive being in a warming station for hours. I booked this off a tourism guide recommendation. It's in all the books but it wasn't the best place for us. We wanted something more authentic & in Iraklion proper. Honestly I couldn't really tell the difference between this & a Caribbean / Mexican all inclusive. If that is what you want, it's probably great but it was not a good fit for us. Given the slow time of year there was also nobody in the excursion office to ask questions of. It is a gated property. You have to be staying there to be allowed to pull your car in. The beach had chairs & little tiki huts but there was an ugly factory with 3 smoke stacks just up the beach. The sand was pebbles. Surf might be a tad rough for little kids.
