The room was spacious, however the air con was hit and miss, and the exit sign was annoying. There was only one door why do you need an exit sign? Wifi is expensive!

The hotel was lovely and the staff were very good. Especially the pool cafe and bar staff, they could not have been more attentive. Something needs to be done about getting your luggage up the long very steep driveway as the coach drops you at the bottom and there is nobody to help. The accommodation was fine but we had booked a superior bungalow and I was very very disappointed as it just looked like a standard double room you could get anywhere. The views were stunning though. It was a good holiday though.

Rooms and bathrooms were cleaned daily. We had a beautiful sea view from our rooms. We had 2 interconnecting rooms, one for us and one for our 2 teens. Both rooms had a mini fridge and a safe. Shampoo, body wash and hair dryer were all provided.
Beautiful location, hotel very well kept, with pomegranate trees, beautiful flowers growing outside the rooms. Restaurant has a beautiful view of Elounda and the ocean and mountains beyond.
The pool area was clean and plenty of sunbeds were available. There was also a ping pong and pool table. Lovely terrace, sofas provided an area to relax after dinner and enjoy a few drinks.
The staff were all very friendly and polite.
The hotel is about 2km from Elounda village. It took us about 45 minutes to walk to the beach in the village but that was probably because of the heat. It was 30 degrees. It cost 7euros for a taxi back. There are plenty of taxis available in the square.
We hired a car so we could see more of Crete, which I definitely recommend. It's difficult to get around without a car.
