Kalimera, During this new season, many things have changed about the food. We propose only greek dishes to our customers because we have the strong will for you to discover and enjoy the simple but flavoured greek gastronomy. The all inclusive system starts from 10 a.m to 11 p.m to enjoy our local drinks. Our french speaking animation team propose...

We arrived a little frazzled having spent 2 extra hours on arrival trying to trace a missing case and the hotel staff could not have been more welcoming. They immediately called the airport to see if there was any more news on our case and then actually walked with us to our room, assuring us that they would continue to...

My partner and I stayed here for a week at the beginning of July. Had a fantastic time. The room was quite spacious, enough to set up a massage table which we both indulged in. The lady's details are in reception and she really knows what she is doing. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. We were getting little...

stayed here 5th-12th July 2015. Hotel was lovely & clean with welcoming staff. No entertainment, absolutely no atmosphere, food was dire, all inclusive drinks very weak. Most of the guests were Russian & German who don't interact at all. We had the quiet pool at the back to ourselves most days. Thankfully we found Davinas apts & taverna almost next...

We spend 10 days at gouves sea&mare in crete. It was so bad that I dont know where to start... We checked in just after 12am and there was no staff at the reception-just a security guy. He checked us in and took us to our room. Just after about 30min we realised that air-con in our room is leaking....

Dear guest, We want to take care about our guests, from years now (from 1979) and many things have changed meanwhile. For the season 2016, we have changed our Chef and totally upgrated our buffet into a greek style only : no italian, chinese or international buffet. Only greek food because we want our guests enjoy what we call here...

I don't like to be negative about things and so won't go out and out to be negative about our stay at this hotel, however this will be an honest review of our 7 days we just spent at the Gouves sea in Crete.

Although this hotel does have some plus points, I would have to say that if I could choose only one word to describe it - it would have to be "disappointing". If you visit this hotel's website you're presented with images that leave you feeling you're going to somewhere special. The superior double rooms look opulent and well decorated, the...
