Hotel was modern however has been built in the middle of no where! Pool was nice, but there are tiles around the outside so you will slip either into the stone recess or back into the pool. Cats freely wander into the dining room. Room was comfortable but could hear the traffic and the incoming planes.

Close to beach and great parking with wide, spacious location away from the congestion of Heraklion but very near the airport! The food was amazing!! Get the half-board and enjoy 5 star breakfast and dinner buffets. Immaculate and comfy beds. Will stay here again!

    Hard to find. Modern place with friendly staff.

    The hotel itself was great. Clean, spacious (for Greece), and modern. It had a great pool and a miderately sized restaurant. They also had a “living room” on the main floor where guests could socialize and use free WiFi ( note WiFi in your room is an extra charge). Our stay came with breakfast included and they had good variety for their buffet. It was a great value. The room was spacious and cute. There was free fruit as a welcome. There is a light outside of the rooms (as part of the hotel’s facade) which is on all night long. You have to use the black out curtains if you want it blocked off. A little annoying if you would like to wake up to natural light and not have to use the curtains. Otherwise, the room is modern and comfortable. The bathroom is surprisingly spacious. Note, the hotel can be tricky to find based on the address (since i think it’s only been there for 3 months). Google maps kept bringing us to the beach side even though it’s about 5 minutes from there. Luckily, the restaurant that maps kept directing us to had a friendly server who said this happens frequently and gave us directions. It would be nice to have the address updated. Only other issue is parking. Their lot is small and can’t really fit that many cars. You can park on the street, however this may be an issue when they continue to get more guests. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and professional. Would stay again.
