It is places like this and the beautiful family who run it that makes you keep coming back to Crete. We have been coming for over 20 years and would love to come for another 20. The rooms are public areas are kept very clean and everyone is so friendly.

Spacious rooms, which are cleaned every other day, with fresh sheets an towels. Everything was very clean and staff were helpful. Its about 10 mins walk from the strip and beach, so really handy for everything. The 2 restaurants next to it were great, Stratos and Pagonas. Mr Gyros and Remember on the strip are also fantastic.
