Myself and partner have just returned from another fantastic 2 weeks at this hotel in Crete. This was our third time at the hotel; since our last visit in 2019 the hotel has undergone some very tasteful changes which include completely redesigned swimming pool, sunbathing area and outdoor pool bar. Outdoor dining areas overlooking the pool and gardens have been added which enhance the all-inclusive dining experience. The food is exceptional, with international cuisine and à la carte dining. Our room was tastefully decorated in a contemporary style with a beautiful modern bathroom with a walk-in shower; we also had a balcony with a sea view. The staff at the hotel made our holiday very special, they are always willing to help, are courteous and very welcoming. The restaurant service was superb with Nasos the Maître d'hôtel and his team. The poolside bar was very popular during the day with Giorgio the barman keeping eveyone entertained during the day, and the lovely Olga a star in the evening. This hotel has everything you want in a holiday. Mo & Dave England Sent from my iPhone

We visited the the hotel at seasons peak (the first half of August) for 10 nights and had really great time. After arriving at 1-2am, the stuff welcomed us with late supper and cold beer/wine:) Despite fully booked hotel we felt no crowds at the restaurant, the pool or anywhere else during stay. Very nice renewed bungalow rooms with modern bathrooms, comfortable beds, a desk, air conditioning and a small terrace. The food was very tasty and quite varying day by day. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Our general experience was totally relaxing stay - one of hotels when you feel really comfortable and everything is "no problem". The hotel is situated in a quiet place of Malia near a small nice beach (2 minutes by feet, very warm water) and 15 minutes from the city center. Car rental and trips at the reception were very well priced - we can recommend the waterpark trip - nearby location, no queues to sliders, many attractions. If you want to really see Crete with no hurry, car rental is a must - there are really iconic places to see! Definitely one of our best holidays recently! At the end we would like to thank the staff for sending back my dive computer left at the hotel!

We visited the hotel end of October when the world was closed. As you can imagine the hotel was pretty empty which we quite liked. The customer service was great and everyone was pleasant and friendly. The chef even went the extra mile with the food knowing there was only a couple of guests they still put out all the dishes. The pool was a bit cold but time of year I guess. We had a hot tub room which was fab just make sure you don't over fill or your room will be flooded. The hot tub took up majority of the bedroom but we didn't care as it was a nice luxury to have. What ever you do don't go out on the balcony and close the door behind you as you cannot open it from the outside. We got stuck one day lucky someone was walking past for us to shout for help! Lol. I would go back again for a nice relaxing break. A small hotel not a large resort, with a little evening entertainment. Just right!

We booked a last minute holiday through love holidays at a great price to Kyknos, 7 nights all inclusive, we had a fabulous, relaxing week in the sun and cannot fault the hotel, we were greeted at reception, our bags were taken and sanitised, check in was easy, we had one of the rooms that hadn't been refurbished, but it was absolutely fine, clean and comfortable, the shower was great, it was also nice and quiet. Our 1st stop was lunch, this would normally be a buffet but due to Covid was plated by very friendly staff, lots of choice, large portions, the food was lovely and fresh, the seating area is outside overlooking the pool area, the staff were very attentive, bringing cutlery, drinks & clearing plates We relaxed by the pool, with cold beer from the bar We explored the local area, a short walk to a beautiful, long beach, with bars, restaurants and water sports, lots of sunbeds too Just up from the beach is a strip with lots of shops, bars, a pharmacy and car hire, a nice walk in the sunshine, stopping off for a drink and snack, the Gyros was fab We mostly ate at the hotel because the food was lovely and the service was great, meal times were good, didn't have to get up too early for breakfast, plenty of room at the pool, although I can imagine it is busy in the summer, we swam in the pool that was clean, if a bit cool in October The pool bar was brilliant, plenty of room to sit, it was sanitised regularly through the day, the bar staff were fun and friendly, Olga worked her socks off in the evenings, keeping the drinks flowing and the music playing We treated ourselves to full body massages at the hotel too We had a wonderful relaxing, fun week and will definitely return All the staff worked very hard and were friendly, they followed covid rules well, we felt totally safe
