Just returned from a week in hotel with husband. Hotel right at top of village so views spectacular. We has a sea via suite. A bit disappointed in view as although we could see the sea it was obstructed by the roof of the front of hotel. Rooms spacious clean but basic. Kitchen facilities very limited but didn't bother us as never intended to cook. However if you are hoping to do any cooking there are not a lot of utensils etc. Bathroom had a really powerful shower but unfortunately instead of being at the end of the bath it was on the wall in the middle fading the shower curtain which involved a lot of effort to prevent the whole bathroom from being flooded. We ended up using it as a hand held as it was impossible to use with the ahowwe head on the wall. The pool area is lovely but spoiled by the usual habit of people putting their towels on the loungers first thing on morning and then selfishly leaving them all day regardless of whether they were using them or not. As a result of this we were only able to spend one day at pool as really can't be.bothered with this carry on. The breakfast was simple but adequate. Greek yoghurt was delicious on the watermelon. Only ate in hotel once as so many lovely restaurants in the nearby villages. The down side of this hotel is that it is situated at the top of a fairly steep hill and in addition there are a further 32 steps to negotiate which although we are fairly fit and used to a lot of walking in the heat and after a meal and few drinks we began to drraf them. A taxi from Hersonisos was €7 and eventually we caved in! The staff were very friendly and accommodating but as we didn't spend much time in the hotel we didn't get to first name terms. Nothing was too much bother. I would recommend this hotel if you want a relaxing atmosphere with great views and plenty of great restaurants nearby and are prepared to get up early to bag a lounger by the pool. Beware the hill and stairs !!

This is a lovely hotel high up on a mountain with amazing views. All the staff are very friendly, especially George, Nikita and Nicos who do everything possible to ensure you have a enjoyable stay.

The hotel is only around a half an hour drive from the airport, however, if you're arranging a coach transfer it will drop you off at the bottom of a small hill which you'll have to walk up to get to the hotel.

The rooms were very spacious with a bedroom, large bathroom with a powerful shower, a living room, air conditioning and kitchen facilities. The only issue I found with the room was that the single bed was quite lumpy and got rather uncomfortable to sleep on. However, extra quilts were provided that when put down on the bed sorted this issue perfectly.

The main area of the hotel had an adequate sized pool which at busy times during the day got quite crowded and sunbeds weren't available in the afternoon. This area is also where breakfast, lunch and dinner was served. The breakfast was a basic continental selection of pastries, fruit, ham, cheese, eggs and toast. The Greek yogurt that is provided at breakfast is a must try! It was very fresh and home made and paired very well with the watermelon. The lunch and dinner menu was very good. It had a good selection of Greek food as well as burgers, toasties and pizzas, a particular favourite of ours was the chicken gyros.

We would have liked to have rated this hotel 5 stars but the rooms were not consistent. We had two rooms, one had a powerful spa shower, the other had a mixer tap shower over the bath. One room had a flat screen TV, the other an old fashioned CRT. Rooms at the top of the hill had issues with water pressure, which meant showering during peak times in the evening is difficult due to lack of hot water. This a known problem, so I would have expected the owners to have put those rooms on a different feed from the rest of the hotel.

There are also phones in the room, but you can only call the reception from it. It's good that British customers can now use their mobile bundle in Europe, as there is no wi-fi in the rooms.

There is also not room service on Sundays, however if you need fresh towels, staff are more than happy to provide.

There are two villages on either side of the hotel, both are easy to walk to and have great selection of bars and restaurants. You can also walk down the hill to the main resort, though walking back up the hill is a real challenge in the heat.

We hired a car for 3 days to break up the holiday and visited the birth place of Zeus, olive oil production, Chania, Palace of Knossos and Heraklion.

Despite some issues with the hotel, we would definitely go back.

Stayed at amazone village suites for the first time. Loved it! Setting, pool, staff, location, food, accommodation really lovely. Staff cant do enough, only comment is please change the mattresses, they're like rock so slept badly. Also area not recommended for anyone with poor mobility as steep slopes. Thanks to George (the manager who seems to sleep under his desk!) And all the lovely staff

We stayed for a week in September and had a wonderful time. The staff are amazing, so helpful and welcoming, Nikos, George and Nikittaa and the young girls.

Our room, Junior Suite with Sea View, was huge!!! Spotlessly clean, lovely finishing touches, lovely views of the sea!.

We ate a few times in the hotel, food lovely, especially the very british sausage, egg and chips!!

We had lovely meals in the villages, we would recommend, Zachos in Old Hersonissos, Steki restaurant and Patriko.

The villages are so typically greek, lovely people.

The hotel is on a very steep hill, myself and my partner are fairly fit but in 39 degrees heat, even we struggled, therefore, if you have slight walking difficulties, please bear this in mind.

We hope to be back to this lovely hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Junior Suite was large with sea view

This was our second stay here and we had a fabulous holiday. The amazing, friendly staff make this place. They are so friendly and make everyone so welcome. The apartments are good, showers could do with some attention as the chrome was flaking off. Pool area is lovely, bar is great. My only criticism would be I think there should be a dish washer as it is more hygienic when catering for a lot of people. We will definitely consider returning.
