This place is an absolute gem if you’re looking to relax and unwind. Despite it being an hour drive from Heraklion airport, it’s well worth the trip. The staff were second to none, from the main restaurant, to the beach bar, reception, buggy drivers and daily housekeeping. Everyone was friendly and genuinely very helpful. We stayed for a week and would definitely recommend. Several things to note:
Food - good breakfast buffet covering the standard continental range and local delicacies. Decent range of restaurants although pricy in comparison to restaurants in neighbouring towns (Plaka/ Elounda)
Private beach - great views and exceptional service from staff. Plenty of availability when it comes to sun loungers and has a water sports port you can book trips and experiences at directly.
Housekeeping - super!
Transport - the rooms are scattered along the hillside but getting to and from the room, beach, restaurant, pool is made easy with their golf buggy service.
Spa/ gym/ tennis courts - gym access doesn’t come at an extra cost but if you’re looking to use the spa, you’ll find it underground which is a shame given the natural light and fantastic views available. Spa staff aren’t as friendly as everyone else working across the hotel which is a shame so we cancelled our treatment. You also have to pay an extra free to use the sauna.
“Adults only” seems to be a loose rule as there were babies and toddlers.
