Please do not ignore the bad reviews of this hotel. It is just a basic hotel with basic rooms even though we paid for an upgrade. The hill is very steep and a lot of steps up to hotel. Would not recommend hotel to anyone. The only good thing about the hotel was the staff they were all very helpful...

This is the second year we have stayed at this hotel, and that is for a reason.The hotel ticks all the boxes you need on a 2 week "away from it all break".The location is superb with stunning views over Elounda Bay.
