Perfect stay for just the two of us. A lot of sun, workouts and good food. Don't miss the SPA when you are visiting the hotell. Absolutely recommend going if you're up to a quiet vacation at the hotell. Not to much activity outside. Love the activity plan they have at the hotell. You won't regret going ☀️

From the minute we arrived we were greeted with a traditional Cretan welcome of a drink. We were then shown to our room where we were greeted to a selection of foods and a...

This was a gorgeous hotel with a hot tub on the balcony - beautiful sea views and an amazing birds show at dusk each night. Not on the main drag but easy access by taxi to nearby village with lovely restaurants.
