We had a one bedroom unit. We found everyone so helpful and friendly. Unit was quite basic but exceptionally clean and tidy. Beautiful pool and unusual smaller pool between the blocks of units. Only downside, there were no comfortable chairs inside the unit to use in the evenings, only the two sofa beds in the lounge area with cushions, which... More

Stayed here as family for week swap via RCI. The staff at this resort are really superb - polite, efficient and helpful. Site has 3 outdoor pools and a heated indoor pool, a spa and massage, and pools are well spaced out for the various apartment blocks. It is however only a couple of minutes to walk to a good,...

Location good if you like to be near the beach. Plenty of eating places round about if you choose not to eat in the resort. Great location for sightseeing in western and Southern Crete. The 1 bedroom apartment we had overlooked the pool and was spacious, but the upstairs bedroom had very low ceiling beams near the door. Both my... More

It had everything we needed. The staff at the resort were lovely, especially the restaurant staff, and particularly the manager, we was very obliging with... More

We had fun in spite of our accommodations. This "Diamond Resort" was, in my world-travelled opinion, a terrible place to stay. We stayed there on a friend's timeshare points, and the "resort" is overrun with sales agents trying to sell timeshares. Every 10 minutes someone in a light blue oxford shirt escorts a wide-eyed couple (or family) around the pool... More
