Just came back from holiday in this beautiful resort. Overall we had a great experience with few comments.
1. Check in and check out smooth and easy.
2. Excellent breakfast.
3. Excellent evening meals at the main restaurant.
4. Beautiful beach with crystal clear water.
5. Overall very friendly staff special thanks for the welcoming lady at the main restaurant and the two waitresses at the beach restaurant all were great. ( sorry I cannot recall the names).
6. The beach restaurant is perfect for lunch; do not miss there tapas fantastic. The Cretan restaurant is superb with excellent friendly staff do not miss their moussaka.
7. 3 nice tennis courts that we used every morning.
8. Do not miss staying at the beach bar the evening time, just great with nice music and beautiful sea breeze.
1. Yes it is a beautiful resort but similar to so many resorts around the world with no special taste of Greece.
2. The main problem in this resort is that you are obliged to reserve the room with half board option so you do not have the freedom to have your evening meals at Elounda or Agios Nicoulaos were you can have a more authentic Greek experience.
3. The food at the fish restaurant,the only a la carte that we tried is rediclisouly overpriced with small portions although the ambiance is great.
4. The main pool , the rooms and the Gym are very modest for this type of resorts and this amount of money we paid with a maximum and being generous a 4 stars.
5. A bit far from town, I do not think it is walkable specially in hot weather. Either a bus or taxi with 6 euros to Elounda and 14 euros to Agios one way but there you will feel the real Greece.
Will I return? Yes if I do not obliged for the half board option.
