Arrived from airport via hire car to the village. Hire car worth getting as you may wish to get food from supermarkets and sight see. Not imperative - but taxi to & from airport for family of five would have been a fifth of car hire anyway.
Our apartment was self catering (although they obviously do breakfast and other quality food offerings), clean & had air-con in bedrooms. Basic kitchenette was functional with full size fridge. Maid service with fresh sheets every 4 days, and towels every two. Rubbish removed and loo roll replaced. Floor mopped and beds made on towel change over.
Swimming pool clean, nice bar area, not too busy even when hotel was full.
The couple who ran the business were professional, kind, courteous and attentive. They were approachable and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Really can't thank them enough for their welcome.
We went on several trips as we like to alternate between pool days & sight seeing with our 3 kids.
Recommend Spinalonga, Lasithi Plateau (turn right at T junction as you approach plateau and grab coffee at flower laden taverna on left - two km from the cave of Zeus) worth a visit. Take trainers - it's a 1km plod up a rocky path. We also made it to the water park - Aquaplus - which was good to do - but go later (3pm) as there is only so long one can splash about for...
Lots of great restaurants in village - Piscopiano. Kostas; Litchnos; Patricko and Aposperida were our favourite - service and food grea
Nous (2 adultes - 1 ado) avons passé 15 jours très agréables dans ce joli petit hôtel. Une mention spéciale pour le personnel, disponible et extrêmement sympathique. L'établissement est très bien tenu avec une très jolie vue côté mer. Bien que proche de Malia et des commodités, l'hôtel reste à l'écart du brouhaha de la ville.
Le petit déjeuner buffet est très varié et copieux et deux fois par semaine des diners à thème sont proposés (menu grec et BBQ). Contrairement aux "grands complexes" hôteliers, les chaises longues et les parasols autour de la piscine sont en nombre plus que suffisant. Nous recommandons cet hôtel sans aucune réserve.
