                              • Great location to get to resturants and the hotel is fairly central 10 mins into town straight down the road. The service is perfect and rooms are clean. Breakfast is excellent and the pool is excellent.

                              • Excellent location, comfortable hotel and reasonable prices. Very clean lovely staff and a nice bathroom. An excellent, expansive buffet breakfast and a good selection of wines was also available. The pool was luxurious.

                                The room was small.

                              • Good location and a perfect gem on a beautiful island. The whole stay was superb and service was great. The room was quite comfortable and breakfast was excellent.

                                A very mediocre hotel, finally, the food in the restaurant was not up to much notably our eggs in the morning were cold.

                              • In great location, the best in town and a high standard hotel in the centre of Heraklion. The prices were quite reasonable, service here was superb and staff were attentive friendly and informative, the room was spacious and well laid out and the bathroom was very well equipped. The breakfast was very good, the dinner was particularly creative and delicious, very nice pool and the facilities were very nice.

                                Day to day variety of food again not up to 5* standard.

                              • Location is a quiet suburb of Heraklion, the hotel is brand new, nice and clean, service is fantastic, professional friendly. Suites invite you to feel well and restaurant served first class food at reasonable rates.

                                Staff should learn to smile more and show more warmth.

                              • Convenient location for getting out of town to the airport, the absolutely best thing about the hotel is the human element and the staff is very helpful, professional and quick. Free internet is always nice and restaurant open for long hours. The swimming pool has a very good size.

                                Little place between bed, small rooms and the cocktails in the bar was also not as we expected for the price.

                              • The pool area is spectacular, the hotel is ideally located just 5mins from the port and the staff are very polite, professional, friendly and helpful. Rooms are modern and spotless, breakfast is great, facilities are excellent.

                                A little far from the city centre, the flashing light above the bed and the prices for drinks in the from the mini bar and the restaurant are unbelievable expensive.

                              • Nice pool deck area, perfect for touring Heraklion as is walking distance from the port and street signs are small and long. This hotel is fantastic and and finally, the prices are quite reasonable. Staff friendliness are exceptionally good, rooms are excellent and the breakfast had a very big selection to choose from.

                                Situation not that central, not near the old town and quality of food couldd not be better.

                                Only a small parking on the backside of the hotel.

                              • The outdoor pool area is lovely and relatively stiff price balanced off by top quality welcome and room. The service is great and the beds are large and comfortable.

                                Breakfast very disappointing for a 5* hotel.
