Stayed here in September, 2016, after arriving in Heraklion with a plan to head westward. Luxury hotel experience at a budget motel price, with excellent service and friendly, outgoing staff. Was intended only as a stopover before heading onto greater things (Balos, Elafonissi), but found myself wanting to stay longer. Highly recommended!
