Gorgeous location in Agio Pelagia. It’s got breathtaking views, secluded, but not isolated, and a white and stone design. The staff are genuinely kind, responsive, and gave us a true 5 star experience.

8/10 Very good

The location and many pool options were great. Also the private sea access with bar facilities were a nice option. The all-inclusive is not really all inclusive as it is restricted to local spirits only, but the value for money overall is very good.

10/10 Exceptional

Stunning resort, built right on the side of the rocky hill with access to the deep blue sea. Everything is new and sparkling clean. The view from the room was breathtaking and the amenities provided were superb. We were greeted by a very friendly lady at the front desk who upgraded us from half board to all inclusive and sorted everything out for us (Thank you Anna!) All the staff have been amazing and always keen to help and treat us to something to drink or eat. Highly recommended if you want a peaceful retreat by the sea with your family.

4/10 Fair

We were given a standard double room even though we had booked a soperior double sea view room. After 3 days of our 12 day stay, we complained quite sternly and Sophia the manager upgraded us to a Junior Suite. This seems like a huge upgrade but in effect it was simply a bigger room. This "resort" is very spread out and is not easily accessible . There is no beach. The main pool is quite small and situated right outside the dining area. The salt water pool is accessed via a lift down 3 floors and then 56 steps down to the pool.There are no snack bars or even any type of drinks available at this pool. You have to go back to the main pool area if you want something to drink. The "deck" which is simply a big concrete area, is another 82 steps down - no lift. Becuase it is all concrete it is extremely hot down there. It has a small snack bar but the all inclusive does not apply here , so if you want a drink it is all the way back to the hotel - 130 steps and 3 floors in the lift. The Entertainment at night is simply rubbish!!! The animation team could not even keep a 3 year old entertained. The hotel is about 45 minutes away from Heraklion, so if you have children or teenagers there is simply nothing for them to do after 6pm. A simply dissappointing experience and definitely not a 4 star resort.
