8/10 Very good

Generally a great place to stay
Staff and service were excellent, really child friendly. Terrace was big, pool was deep. Kids club was great, they never wanted to leave. My only negative comments would be our villa was dated and was certainly due new bathrooms as they were looking very tired.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is very secluded and beautifully set on the edge of the hill overlooking the sea. The perfect place to unwind. The grounds are beautifully maintained with lovely foliage. All staff were amazing and it was lovely to meet the owners in person.

10/10 Exceptional

The service was exceptional. The staff & in particular the manager couldn’t do enough for us. It a very quiet resort. The beach club is 10 minutes away but they do provide free shuttle service. The only criticism is a lack of atmosphere. Music would add to the ambience at the beach club but this is a minor issue compared to all the positives in particular the service.

Loved the shower and the view from the balcony. The sink wouldn't release and for the proce pf the rooms there should be more available for drinking than bottled water

Beautiful spot close to nice village.
The resort is beautiful and the staff is amazing. Elounda village is also very nice and a great way to get a sense of life on Crete off the resort.

We had a wonderful time.
The accommodation here is outstanding but what made it a really wonderful experience was all the staff. They could not do enough for you and it created a lovely atmosphere around the complex.

Lovely hotel with lovely hotel staff.
Having stayed at other hotels in Crete and on other Greek Islands I can honestly say this was the nicest, and had the friendliest helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble.
