    Staff spoke very good german and was always approachable. We had in the vacation nothing at all, that be complained about or where we in support of the staff be. But questions about the way, supermarket, gas station, etc. Were all friendly and competent answered. Waiters were super nice. Also in the Kulinarium were 'original' greeks and happy for lunch on their guests. Here there was a nice selection of greek and mediterranean cuisine. Duration about 15 minutes depending on the number of guests. Great view over the sea. Simply a dream. With full board and all inclusive drinks.

    We had a car from/to the airport are available for hire. Duration up to the hotel about an hour, a little shorter. To the next place about 3 kilometer. we found not so exciting. It seemed, at least visually, nice restaurants to give. As we board and had booked, this came for us not in question. Hotel-owned beach was nice silent corners, where you can withdraw could. Enough beach chairs available. No 'in the middle of the night handtuchauflegen' necessary. Was probably the 'quality' sovereign guests. Everyone made his and 'beamed' peace and leaving.

    The sea was very warm. But pebble beach, rocky, in the water partly sea urchins. Strandschuhe are recommended, but it is also without. The pool was with respect to 'ass cold'. Was hardly anyone in it, i only right in the morning after the sport, if i totally heated was. Small fitness center available. Very clean with towels and always open, so not locked and at any time accessible. Beach chairs were all in order, apparently new, but without cushions, only towels.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    There was the main restaurant (breakfast and dinner), and the Kulinarium right on the beach. For breakfast you can even orange juice grind. Sunday sparkling wine. Otherwise there is the usual continental breakfast offerings like eggs in different consistencies, sweet things, hearty. Fruit (delicious the peaches and bananas), salads, meats, olives, sheep cheeses, etc.

Very nice hotel on the outskirts of agios n. Booked this Sensimar with TUI and to the service belongs, that you directly from the airport geshuttlet is. Transfer only about 45 minutes back, it even went with the taxi. Great! Grounds are well maintained and marked by native hedges, shrubs and trees (for example, olives). It goes from the main building over small paths down to the beach. Stunning views of the mirabello bay. Panorama included. The hotel isn't very large - a little more than 140 rooms. Breakfast and dinner in the main restaurant with a great view of ... the town and the bay. Lunch and sometimes dinner (advance) in the restaurant 'Kulinarium' on a slope at the beach. Nice pool area with olivenbäumchen and comfortable lounge chairs. Shade pavilions are also available, as well as a locker room and showers. Daily change the beach towels by the pool were/rescue float. Above the pool there is a terrace with comfortable seating in the lounge-style. Wonderful to relax. Drinks and snacks you can at the pool/main bar menu. Everything was clean and tidy. Wi-fi was only in the lobby area. To the guest structure: mixed (german, english, russian, and so on.). Staff is multi-lingual. Therefore, that no children in the Sensimar can be accommodated, age structure in 30-60 years. Many peace-seeking guests. read hotel review

    Staff is very friendly and helpful. On the lobby is fluent in english and german spoken. In the restaurants the employees are very polite (unobtrusive friendliness). Our room was cleaned every day. Bellboys came immediately after call. Very reliable. Since we did not have any complaints, we can also the dealing not evaluate.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    We were one week in Sensimar and daily with were new delicacies surprised. For a buffet offer the meals a high quality, the also constantly from the chefs will be reviewed. Breakfast: large choice of bread, bread rolls, crisp, pastries; coffee is on the table - and refilled; wide selection of teas and juices (sunday even ice cold sparkling wine and lachshäppchen); various egg dishes (chef, scrambled, fried eggs and omelettevarianten ), cold cuts, regional thyme-honey, jam, cold cuts, cheeses, international offer (sausages, greek specialities, tomato beans), and so on. ; you can have fresh juices even presses - nice atmosphere (maybe you could the cool area at the buffet somewhat quieter setting, you hummed very loud). Dinner: varied buffet - daily changing dishes like (daily two soups to choose from - very tasty), bread, salads, a large selection of warm and cold dishes, also live cooking (for example fried fish), individual salad buffet, tasty desserts and fruit. Food was international but it also always gave to regional dishes to choose from. Nice touch: one paid for the drinks in the evening in the bar, but it is on the room number (with signature). Thus one must not constantly with money herumklimpern. Over tips the staff of course. We found the prices for water (2,5 Euro per liter) ok. However, the wine more upscale (circa 20 Euro upwards per bottle).

    The hotel has a small beach in a small bay. Here there were several beach chairs and umbrellas. Also on the adjacent felsenplateaus you can sunbathe. The water is very clean. For larger beaches you have to leave the hotel. The pool area is as an alternative, the beach very recommendable. In the center of agios n. one can go to foot (a tour about 40 minutes) or at the reception a taxi, (immediately, 6 Euro for a tour). There is also a bus stop is located on the main street in about 300 meters distance. A supermarket could be found on the main road (right). About 10 minutes walk. Here there was next to souvenirs, drinks, food, daily necessities. The prices for most products are higher than in Germany. Price for a bottle of water is ok - about 0,60 Euro for a liter. In agio n. there are numerous taverns and cafes. In the centre are many little stores with souvenirs and some fashion shops. Interesting are the fur shops (typical greek?!). One can reach many olivenprodukte cheap buy. Quite nearby, you will find a olive farm. Sometimes, the Sensimar Hotel a visit this farm at. In agio n. there is a small harbor with excursion possibilities: semi-submarine (really nice tour: about 2 hours with many fish, sea turtle, earthquake gorges, 15 Euro). You can also after Spinalonga (island of forgotten) or Angel-trips book. A small bimmel course runs through the village. On wednesday will take place at the centre of a market. Many farmers offer their products (currently huge peaches, olivenprodukte and grapes). Prices are very moderate. There are also textiles and other. The 'inland-sea' is very small and surrounded by cafes and taverns. With a rental car you can of agios n. east explore. Plan this much time - it goes through gebirgiges terrain with many winding roads. Landscape is breathtaking. After Heraklion and knossos about 1 hour of running time - well signposted. Here you can even drive (guided tours in many languages also locally participate: entrance 6 Euro per person, leadership 10 Euro).

    Had a room in the bungalow. Nice view from the bungalow terrace. No plastic chairs on the terrace, but wood furniture. Room very spacious. Terra- farbendes ambience. Large mirror, flat-tv with 4 german channels (ZDF, ARD, RTL, ProSieben). Music system with radio and cd (unfortunately not iPod-able). Spacious closet with a safe (inclusive). Make-up table. Air conditioning to cool and heat (we had on the first day). Minibar (content not included). Bathroom with bathtub and a jacuzzi-function. Marble tiles and toilet. Bathrobe and slippers were with arrival on the room. Perhaps some guests cupboards than a little 'old' call. But they are not worn and fulfill the function fully. Be careful to the concept of the plant, which we the palace of king minos (knossos) - so the name minos palace - designed. Simple and rocky. Unfortunately no wireless internet - front desk in the room.

    The service in the restaurant is rather bad. The mood of most coworkers seems being bad, the monatsbeginn (salary? ☺ it was a bit better. Perhaps depends on with the years of crisis together, before we were Greece better. Room cleaning was decent. However, this from 7:30 a. m. and through the poorly sound-proofed room was a restful sleep no more to think. We had three complaints/problems of which two quickly solved (mattresses edition, doctor) and apparently ignored (wlan). Spoken primarily english, many of the staff you could get but also with german.

    We had a suite with shared pool and the price not adequate. The decor is plain and outdated, the bathroom too small. Toilet with plastic lid is a 4.5 * unworthy. The rooms are very clairaudient, the neighbors to the daily business listen and the finery service at the back of each möbelstückes in all neighboring rooms. The mattresses on the two sofas didn't seem welcoming. The terrace and the pool area of the suites, however, is appropriate nice with a great view.

    The pools made a clean impression, the sea and the beach were also very welcoming. The couches are partially restored. The beach is small, is due to the many liegeecken on the cliffs but extended and is absolutely not a drawback. There were enough beach chairs for all.

  • Gastronomy
    2.0

    Board one can save. Would restaurants in the more immediate vicinity give, we would recommend all meals outside of the hotel. The breakfast buffet is an impertinence, every day the same choice, some things bidaily varied and at the latest from the 4. day it is only still bored. Lunch in the Kulinarium is ok, however it took 30-45 minutes to get it served. Ok, in the holiday you should have time, but if you're hungry or rather in the sun than to sit in the restaurant, then you are just crusty. Keyword crusty, these are the servicekrägte in the Kulinarium almost all. Hardly a smile on their lips, obviously absolutely no pleasure in their work. The dinner was ok, at least what the selection is concerned. Tasty one didn't miss anything, somehow everything tastes the same. Desserts there was daily the same.

  • Location
    5.0

    The location is perfect! A nicer view there cannot be, the situation on the peninsula with views in all directions cannot be topped. For restaurants and shops to reach, however a hike. The nearest bars and restaurants are about 10-15 minutes away, the nearest shopping street about 30 minutes. With the taxi costs the drive to Agios Nikolaos 6 Euro.

    The transfer from the airport took about 45 minutes, the view from our room or in the restaurant to the right in front of you, the sea is amazing. Aghios nikolaos is 2.5 kilometer away and easily reachable by foot. The nearest supermarket is 10 minutes walk away, opposite the iberostar hotel mirabello.

    The breakfast buffet was plentiful and it was good start into the day. Highlights were the themed evenings like gala dinner (dress code black or white), sunset dinner and greek. Evening. But also on the 'normal' dinner was plenty of variety and something for everyone. So could one each evening a freshly prepared salad to their own taste together - highly recommended. The prices are moderate. Both the quality, as well as the selection of the food was excellent and could not have been better.

    We were there with our double room very pleased. The rooms were nicely arranged and there were enough shelf space and possibilities to store available. Only in the bathroom there is a point of criticism. The showers in the much to small bath needs some acrobatics.

    Next to different sports program (aerobics, yoga...) In the evening are still various entertainment possibilities, as for example a evening stroll to aghios nikolaos, or tv evening. Despite mostly german beach chairs manned were still enough beach chairs at the pool, beach and decks available. In the main season it could become however close.

To agios nicolaios about 2 kilometer. for a taxi 6 Euro, but with the bus about 300 metres from the hotel exit only a Euro. Many restaurants in agios, but with such a good meal in the hotel not so empfehlengswer.
