After months of extensive research and careful consideration, we ultimately selected this hotel as the venue for my and my husband's wedding. I cannot express the happiness I feel as a result of that decision. Our wedding turned out to be a realization of all our dreams, with every single aspect being absolutely perfect. We secured this location a year in advance of our event, and the hotel maintained constant communication with us throughout the entire year to ensure that every detail was meticulously planned. We had everything we had ever envisioned, from the grand entrance on a jetski to our departure on a boat, the talented saxophonist, the top-notch DJ, and even a skilled face paint artist. The decorations were nothing short of incredible, and the hotel's team brought my vision to life based on the pictures I provided. Our guests were delighted with the hotel, and the rooms were fantastic, not to mention the exceptional food and top-tier hospitality. I want to give a special shout-out to Maria-Christina, who truly deserves recognition (perhaps even a promotion). It's been a long time since I've encountered such a dedicated, professional, and genuinely exceptional worker. The hotel should consider itself very fortunate to have you on their team. For anyone considering a destination wedding, I highly recommend contacting this hotel. They can share pictures from previous weddings to help you visualize your own dream celebration (you might even spot my pictures among them!). It was truly an amazing experience in every way, and I give it a five-star rating across the board.

Spectacular views of the peninsula made this hotel special. I enjoyed the food, there was plenty of choice but a bit limited if you are vegetarian. The variety of salads was great, The staff were pleasant and helpful. Pool sunbeds around the main pool were in short supply, the hotel could easily have put some more around this area. Also the main pool is quite deep all the way across it there is no real shallow end. There are no shops or bars close by so in that respect the hotel is quite isolated. We paid 600Euros for day trip to Santorini which looking back on it seems extortionate. On our last day the we had to check out of our room but the hotel did kindly give us another room to shower in before our flight, The entertainment is predominantly French but we didn't mind. Overall the hotel is lovely.

This resort is beautiful! When we first arrived, we were amazed at the beauty and the views. We stayed down near the saltwater pool, which was probably better than near near the main pool because of the noise from the pool and restaurant. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool facilities were nice and there were plenty of chairs near the salt water pool and down by the a la carte restaurant where you could jump in the sea. We spent a day a the public beach next door, which had restaurants and bars and stores and you could rent chaise lounges for the day for 10 euros per pair. It was lovely. The beach at the resort was more crowded and the food options were more limited and expensive. We paid for the all inclusive and the food was fine. It wasn’t outstanding and I could see getting sick of it if we were there all week. They do not label things, and so our food allergies made trying things problematic. It’s not hard to label the food, even without allergies you just want to know what you’re eating. The main problem we encountered that would prevent our return is that you cannot flush toilet paper. This appears to be the case all over the island but for four people sharing a bathroom, this gets gross pretty quickly. We were not bothered that the activities were in French. We anticipated that they would not be in English, since we weren’t in an English-speaking country. We were there to relax, not play or party. We were probably the only Americans there, but that was fine by us.

I’m a single mom with 2 teenagers that stayed at this resort. It was not advertised anywhere as a French speaking resort. Some of the staff speak English, but not many. All social activities/shows are in French. The entire time we were at the resort we only met 2 families that spoke English. The buffet did not have a lot of selection and some of the items were stale. You clear your own plates when finished eating and get your own cutlery. Self serve your own drinks. No servers around the pool. The 1 restaurant we are at included in the all inclusive package was terrible. I ended up sitting for 30-40 minutes waiting for our bowls to be cleared after dessert so I could sign for the wine that was not included. If you go down to the platform to jump in the water and lounge on the sun, this is extra, even a pop for the kids. I wished I had picked a different resort by the end of our first day. The only amazing part of our stay were the views.

Can not recommend this place enough. We had such a wonderful time and the staff was amazing. We got married there and they went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure everything was perfect. Not only was the staff amazing the resort was beautiful and the food was delicious. Special thanks to Maria-Christina, Ashok and Maria-Irini who were amazing. The wedding was beautiful but the fact that they gave us a beautifully decorated bridal suite for the night, made special shot bottles for us, took pics and videos they sent us later, and helped with everything that I couldn't have ever imagined needing help with was even better. Also one of my sisters had an issue with flights and had to miss a night and they gifted them all spa treatments! Thank you for everything you did! Love this place!❤️

This was our second time in hotel. Everything was even better than last time! Everyway very excellent hotel, and these facilities makes us certainly return again. We loved the three beaches for snorkeling and food was every day excellent and varied. Cleaning was also in super level, -everywhere was spotless. Even night entertaiment was now in good level, and not only french, but there was also international animation. There were also the best Greek night, with dancers and real band perfoming their show. Everything was just super fine, -there is Everything what you need for good holiday.

Generally enjoyable stay. We stayed in the Superior room with private pool. The room was large with a comfy bed and incredible view. The private pool and extended balcony were beautiful but need a deep clean. The food was tasty with a good variety at each meal. All staff we encountered were very kind and approachable. Be aware though, that this is a French resort. All activities are in French, including the singing and trivia nights. We know enough French to get Us through a basic conversation but couldn't enjoy the activities to the fullest. I was hoping for an inversive Greece experience, learn about where we are and the language, not French. The resort is approximately 30 minutes from Heraklion so be prepared to pay for a taxi to get to any excursion in town. There is a bus that comes to the resort 5 times a day; however, there is no information about where drop off is in Heraklion and I didn't feel like possibly getting stranded so we didn't take it during our stay. Overall it was a good stay, we enjoyed ourselves and got lots of sun. We are just not sure if we will come back to this exact resort again.

We stayed in a superior sea view and the room was comfortable, large and had the most staggering sea view from the balcony. The cleanliness was also very thorough. the food throughout the stay changed every day, except breakfast which is to be expected. the quality of the food was excellent for the price you pay and cannot complain. drinks were typically all-inclusive. The staff were mostly very good, except for the bar staff who didn't care about being polite. A particular mention to the animation team and the cleaners as they work tirelessly and make the whole experience much more enjoyable. there are 3 beaches, one concrete, all of which are very nice. beware, all of the beaches charge for sitting down on a sunbed, including the concrete beach operated by the hotel which is a disappointment. nice and close to the airport so not a long drive, the local village is a tourist trap not worth going to but the scenery is stunning.

So we visited in 2015, but I didn't leave a review! Maybe things have changed since then so don't just go by my review. We stayed in a sort of cave room, it was big, and comfy enough but very dark! and dated. The food was nice, I really enjoyed everything we ate. The drinks were ok, the usual all inclusive. We enjoyed a glass of wine before dinner sitting out on the terrace looking at the sea. The bar staff were miserable as sin. Now, the animation team, they were something else. Screaming and shouting, in French, and trying to force people up to dance, I love dancing but my husband doesn't! One of the animation team girls kept trying to get him up dancing, but when I said good luck as he won't even dance with me she said "but he might want to dance with me". Needless to say he didn't! (I wouldn't have minded if he did, I'd have been surprised but not upset at all. ) She then got me in the conga and said "oh you brits love the conga don't you". Quite off putting really. 0ne night they had a comedy show, even though it was in French it made us laugh. Karaoke was all French. Anyway, would I go back? The area is nice, and we liked the small beach even if it was pebbly, nice tavernas nearby. We liked the food. Probably wouldn't return, but who knows, I am forgiving.
