A lovely hotel, in a scenic location with a view of the mountains. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly and approachable, very nice people who know their guests on first name basis. It is a nice retreat and is within 10 minute walking distance to the nice beach. This hotel is away from the toy town of Malia, which is full 16-19 year old party goers on quad bikes. The one thing that let this hotel down was again these exceptionally loud young ones, who were resident and took to shouting every night between 3am-5am.

This is a fab hotel in a perfect location - a few minutes walk to the beach and to shops and restaurants. The hotel is gorgeous. Huge and lovely rooms. It has a really nice pool area and bar. Highly recommended!

Terrible hotel. Owner is always with angry face and let himself to scream on guests. Room cleaning is disgusting, sometimes they don't change towels even if you left it on the floor. There is always a smell from toilet.
We arrived at our hotel late at night. It was after 22pm. We were all tired and we had booked an apartment with 2 rooms for 4 of us. We were welcomed at the reception and shown the map where we were and interesting sites near by. We were shown our apartment and were asked if we were happy with it. He sent 4 teas for us courtesy of the hotel. Whenever we had questions they were happy to answer and if they didn't have an answer they would find out for us and come back to us. Family oriented and quite resort. Family owned and all staff were very helpful.

Arrived from airport via hire car to the village. Hire car worth getting as you may wish to get food from supermarkets and sight see. Not imperative - but taxi to & from airport for family of five would have been a fifth of car hire anyway.
Our apartment was self catering (although they obviously do breakfast and other quality food offerings), clean & had air-con in bedrooms. Basic kitchenette was functional with full size fridge. Maid service with fresh sheets every 4 days, and towels every two. Rubbish removed and loo roll replaced. Floor mopped and beds made on towel change over.
Swimming pool clean, nice bar area, not too busy even when hotel was full.
The couple who ran the business were professional, kind, courteous and attentive. They were approachable and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Really can't thank them enough for their welcome.
We went on several trips as we like to alternate between pool days & sight seeing with our 3 kids.
Recommend Spinalonga, Lasithi Plateau (turn right at T junction as you approach plateau and grab coffee at flower laden taverna on left - two km from the cave of Zeus) worth a visit. Take trainers - it's a 1km plod up a rocky path. We also made it to the water park - Aquaplus - which was good to do - but go later (3pm) as there is only so long one can splash about for...
Lots of great restaurants in village - Piscopiano. Kostas; Litchnos; Patricko and Aposperida were our favourite - service and food grea
My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel for 10 days. Some reviews we read were negative and we had some hesitations in booking but thought to see for ourselves and glad we did. This is a family run business. The service of the hotel staff was of a high standard. The quality and quantity of the food was excellent. The facilities of the hotel were as described and the proximity to public transport enabled us to see other parts of the island. We will definitlely be returning to this hotel next year.
