Good hotel, so-so restaurant
Location is reasonable, but we were in April and swimming was not an option. Overall we like the place and service. Breakfast was remarcably good but lunches and dinners were very mediocre - a typical mid-American food - instead of great Greek cousin served everywhere else on the island. Who in the world would travel to Crete to eat typical salmon or chicken dish from mid-West. The same was true about the conference dinner in the other restaurant of the property.
