Walkable to a small village with great food. Car rental on-site was very handy. Just wake up and go. Room was clean and generally well maintained. Beach umbrellas + chairs + pools were all done right. Not overcrowded; there was always a seat available.
The food and drinks are beyond bad. We had one meal on the property and then wrote off our all-inclusive thing and ate every other meal in Analipsi, the village a 10 minute walk to the west. There are several great options there: marina, paradiesos, tritonas, pita land. The food is mainly chicken nuggets and pasta and piles of pre-cooked burgers. The "greek corner" is embarrassing and tastes awful. The "greek snack bar" serves freezer-burned mussels, salads without feta (?!?!?), pork medallions cooked until they're bricks, and other travesties. Drinks were laughably bad. The beer, labeled "Cretan beer", tastes like water and does not appear to have any alcohol, the wines, all on tap, are hilariously bad. Surly bartenders await your command to make the worst mixed drinks you've ever had. The nearest bar with drinks other than the tap drinks are at the main bar, a several minute walk from the beach. The beach isn't terrible, but the pictures make it look sandy. It's not -- it's a bunch of sand poured on top of rocks, and as soon as you get into the water you're likely to get some small scrapes. There's one small area to the east of the dock that has many fewer rocks, and the entire hotel swims there and ignores the rest of the beach. I could imagine staying here again: finding a cheap room, skipping the all-inclusive part, and just using it as a pretty well-run place to stay. But man, stay away from the food.
The beds were really comfortable and the water park was fantastic for the kids.
There wasn't a lot of service. Most of time it was self serve.
Entertainment team was absolutely great, the best what I have ever seen. We enjoyed all their shows during evenings and kids loved their minidisco.
Exceptionally clean, next level of worry-free all-inclusive, incredible choice and quality of food extremely friendly staff, lots of activities, when desired.
Excellent 5 star hotel, very clean, the water park was excellent, the food was excellent, the pools were excellent, very orgenised, great place for families. very recomended, will go there again.
