We loved the hotel. Although it is simple and not new but very good. The room was clean, just a little bit noisy at night, and if there are people who smoke at the balcony above you will feel it. The staff is very friendly: the guys from the kitchen, from the bar and of course the animator Zara. My...

You do indeed get what you pay for. Good for your money, but needs some tlc in the rooms. The hotel is in a good location with a bus stop just outside with links to Malia and Heraklion, plus a pick up point for excursions. Food is cheap and cheerful. Different dishes each day with something for everyone, including kids....
