Bland, Boring, Below Standards. NOT FIVE STAR!!!
It was supposed to be an experience of a lifetime. Two best friends visiting Crete. I did all the right research and chose Vasia Resort as it stated it was a 5 star resort. Nothing is further from the truth. Since my reviews are always objective here is the Pros and Cons Pros: 1. The lobby of the resort is gorgeous 2. They had us in a beautiful villa with a downstairs room overlooking our own mini pool and upstairs overlooking the balcony 3. The resort is situated in a nice village that you can walk around and see shops. There is a supermarket across the street. 4. I did enjoy the SPA facial. That was good. Cons: 1. I booked the resort only to learn afterwards that the 5 restaurants they boast on the Internet was not available in November as its their winter season. Huge disappointment 2. It was buffer style banquet and each day was the same food with no variety - The coffee and tea was always lukewarm - The foods were never hot - always lukewarm - The food was extremely bland - The bananas were frozen - The bacon tasted like rubber - No specials of the day. IE. Omlette or pancakes... 3. Cats were running around the entire resort. The resorts reasoning is that the customers feed them but it was awful. I have never been to a five star resort where cats were everywhere 4. Internet was so bad that I had to go work in the front lobby. I never figured out the Internet 5. The SPA. - Closed on Sundays - They do not used sheets on the massage tab
