Liked: Property conditions & facilities

Disappointed with our stay here, and very rarely give bad reviews. Setting of the hotel is beautiful and facilities are good but we were disappointed with the service particularly from the reception staff who were confrontational when we had a misunderstanding about our transfer. It set out stay off negatively and we felt the general service and quality of food (particularly the buffet) was far from 5*. We weren’t informed how services in the hotel worked upon arrival and all this ruined what could have been a lovely stay

Lovely resort. We visited during the summer (2021) when travelling began again, and were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the resort was. The food buffets at breakfast and dinner provided lots of options and changed each day (we were there for 10 days, and never tired of it). The staff were very friendly and always helpful. We had a room with a private pool (we saw that there were many of these rooms in the resort), and this was so nice: the pool was clean (as was our room, which was cleaned each day). The bar was nice, both outside (where the view over the water was great) and inside (when we needed air-conditioning). We will return next year.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not nearly what I was expecting
Was not impressed would the service. Multiple issues with communication about the resort leaving us missing out on opportunities and losing out on parts of our booking. I am not sure if there were so many issues due to covid, but I will not be back during our next trip to Elounda. The food in the restaurant was not good and the drinks were all lacking. We paid extra for a lobster dinner and highly regret it. Waited 20-30 minutes in between each course. It was one of the most frustrating meals I've had. The property is nice, but outdated . On a positive note, the views are great.

Great hotel
Great hotel - would highly recommend getting a room with a pool or sea view. Rooms (we had a superior bungalow with sharing pool) were large, nicely decorated and modern. Breakfast and dinner were varied and staff always friendly!
