Perfect name for the perfect retreat nestled in the mountain! Exceptionally clean and very helpful staff, great little touches made this the perfect getaway. Having a car would allow you to explore the island although we chose to relax by the pool which was very quiet. We had a room with the stone features although not a sea view, it...

First impressions were great, the staff are lovely and very friendly. The room was clean and tidy with lovely nespresso machine which was a nice touch. The location was very peaceful and quiet so it was a great spot to spend a couple of days relaxing. Unfortunately there were a couple of things that let the place down and as...

We were totally satisfied by the hotel services. Very nice suites with jacuzzi outside and a wonderful poolside area promise you the best relaxing stay! The only negative thing i can think is the location. There are not a lot to see in agia pelagia so you need to drive a little bit more to see more of cretan beauty.

A very peaceful and relaxing hotel. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff who strived to make the stay a memorable one. Ideally situated for exploring other parts of the island. A lovely appartment with beautiful views. It was so nice to have tea served in pretty little teapots and real filtered coffee at breakfast time. In general, great attention to detail....

This is a small. Amity run hotel, very relaxing, away from the bustle of life. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, making you feel very welcome. The rooms are comfortable, with air conditioning, and great views. About a mile down hill to Ag. Pelagia, with regular buses, and plenty of taxis to get you back again!...

We were looking for a hotel close to Heraklion for a couple of nights before setting off island hopping. Having been to Crete several times before we were looking for somewhere to unwind and the Happy Cretan fitted the bill perfectly. The staff were so wonderful and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fantastic with freshly squeezed orange...

Whilst we arrived a night we couldn't have been looked after. Greeted with drinks like we were long lost friends (first time!) Rooms are modern and enough (not huge) and views and pool are great. Looking forward to the massage and beauty treatment tomorrow.
