The property is located in a convenient area if visiting balos beach. The staff was super friendly and outgoing. The food options at hotel are terrible, however, it is located about 800 meters from Grambousa (best meal in crete). I would highly recommend going there for a dinner (might have to wait but have a beautiful outside garden bar). The air conditioner in our room was broken. For the price per night, think it is overrated and should be less.

Very convenient location if visiting Balos Lagoon. The restaurants near by the hotel are really good. The hotel facilities are very nice, but the service wasn’t great. It can be better and so is the food served for breakfast. Other than that great location.

not worth the price, everything inside the room is cheap and old (kitchen), far away from everything, the „private“ beach is a disaster... Stay downtown in Kissamos!

It could be better
We arrived to this hotel around 5pm after a long drive. The young lady in the reception either has little experience or little willingness to help..eg. unable to answer some questions regarding dinner menu ....lift her finger to help with our carry-on... Upon check-in our room, the room filled with urine smell, the bathroom area was wet, smelly and had some strand of ugly hairs... The hotel offered to move us to another room next day, not that night. We declined .. too trouble to move since we wanted to enjoy the Balos beach. Do not recommend.
