It was immaculate throughout (including our room and bathroom), and the service was always with a smile from staff throughout all areas of the hotel. Well located with bus stops, a large supermarket and several restaurants only...

We had a great holiday here, the room was great, very clean and tidy. The A/C proved invaluable on a hot sticky night. The overall impression was of a well run and professional hotel. The staff were warm and friendly and could not do enough for you. The reception staff were excellent, multi lingual and multi tasking and were always...

Me and three friends really enjoyed our stay; as a group of 4 girls aged 18 we were mainly concerned with nightlife, food, cleanliness etc. We seriously recommend this area of Hersonissos for very very cheap and fun nightlife. Malia is a 15euro taxi away, if you need a bit more! we loved the hotel, it was clean and comfy...
