6/10 Good

fan in the room did not work, despite notifying staff (it was not a very hot period though) foul odour from the drain pipe, they fixed it after a few days and in fairness fixed that sooner than I got to complain about it overall wear-and-tear of furniture and surfaces like in 3-star hotel breakfast like in 3-star hotel (no good dried sausage slices or cheeses, no juices) family complained that pool is not heated - it was the temperature for serious swimming, not casual splashing

4/10 Fair

Our view from the balcony was very nice. The biggest upset was at the time of booking was when we contacted an Expedia customer service agent to confirm if the room was in fact all inclusive (as it was advertised as an all inclusive hotel) the agent confirmed that this room was all inclusive but that he couldn’t book it through his system and that we had to do it ourselves online. Unfortunately when we checked in we were told our room doesn’t have the inclusive package. Very disappointing for the price we paid for 4 nights and the dated condition of the room and hotel.

8/10 Very good

The property is as advertised on Expedia. I recommend staying at the start or end of the tourist season. There are more room options available so you can get an upgrade and there are no crowds. We're considering coming back next year with the entire family. The only problem was the lack of 24/7 maintenance and administration during the slower months. Not a big deal for non-emergency requests. Otherwise, the property is clean, has amenities galore, and the area has amazing restaurants, and the view from our balcony garden to the sea is spectacular.

Great hotel
We recently enjoyed a fantastic week in Crete at Iolida. With 2 pools and also beach access makes for great choice especially with kids. There are plenty of restaurants to also eat at within walking distance. Staff at hotel also very friendly and willing to help.
