A travel agent who did not know our preferences booked us into this hotel for more than a week. It's the kind of place that would be best for families with young children, or on a budget, as there are places to swim, a beach, activities, an eating hall- so no need to go elsewhere. But the feeling is kind...

We stayed one night in this hotel. The grounds are very nice, it's right on a beach, and our bungalow was pleasant. However, it could have done with some refurbishing (plastic shower curtain? No) and the quality did not reflect its star rating. The food, a club-med style buffet, was adequate but uninspired. Breakfast was nice, with a big choice...

We had a large, clean spacious and modern bungalow. Excellent location in front of the beach and not so far from the city of Heraklion. All staff were extremely helpful and polite. Nice food, congratulations to the chef.

Full disclosure: Heraklion is not a beautiful city and there are quite a lot of factories in the nearby ports. Having said that, we found it a practical location for touring Knossos, Faistos and Gortyna.
