Amazing customer service! I would definitely recommend the hotel and island to all Greece travelers. Also, fantastic food!!! Vasilis, Myros, Klio- best bartenders/waiters at the resort! They made us feel like we were part of their family.

I travelled with my mum and my 7 year old son. We booked a private transfer which was great and took us about an hour from Heraklion airport. As we approached the hotel a porter came and took our cases, our check in was seamless and we were provided with plenty of information along with a welcome drink. Our sea...

First and foremost this hotel is fabulous. From start to finish this hotel could not offer you anymore.

What a lovely experience was the Cretan massage and facial at the Aegeos Spa. Lolita and her team looked after us extremely well and the two hour session was incredibly relaxing. Highly recommended and much needed. If the weather stays as bad as it is this afternoon, we'll be back for more treatments before the end of our holiday! More...

We had a ground floor family room 810. The room wasn't one of the refurbished ones, it was away from the main building in a quiet area with a view of the small kiddies pool, it was 2 mins to the beach and absolutely fine. There are better rooms but these will come with a higher price. The only negative...
