    1 restaurant for the whole hotel, too small, it is the people outside waiting for sometime to get a seat. The drinks are from the alleged Cola to the Wodka cheap and bad. You could drink beer and wine, not even the water was ok. The tablecloths were not changed and even if one as the first sat could it be that the tablecloth black stained. There are very often cups and glasses, and then the coffee and milk, as well as the wine is in the evening quickly and there will be a box with wine to rausdrücken set up. Kitchen is cold lukewarm, but that's the way it should in Crete be eaten. Food was rather unimaginative the breakfast is too little selection.

    Distance to the beach was ok just across the street then a small passage through. Airport is super with the line 6 to reach for 1,50 Euro. There are some good tavernas are all in the proximity and a few souvenirshops. The bus 6 after Heraklion drives directly before the hotel door way.

The hotel is a large and beautiful hotel plant. The hotel bar is highly recommended, it was often overtaxed, but always friendly. In the hotel you can free wi-fi, and computers and a tv, but always of children occupied. In this hotel are mostly young people around the 16 years and adults from 30 upwards. Young adults see you there rarely. Young people are in groups and very loud and rude. Mainly there were russians and Poland in the hotel, most of which do not have the best manners had. read hotel review

    The room was very nice, above average size and nicely decorated. There are rooms with balcony and terrace. The air conditioner worked quickly and a fridge we could also use. The television possessed ZDF and Viva at german programs. A safe we could for 10 Euro rent. The bathroom was always clean and the shower head had a relatively strong ray, unlike most hotels.

  • Location
    4.0

    The hotel is located in the unspektakulären Amoudara. Here there were mainly bars, restaurants and many small shops. There are three small discos, the senses is very popular in the place, but not much. The other two discos were almost empty. The three are a decent walk from the hotel directly next to each other. Dinner was generally very little offered in Amoudara. Right next to the hotel are a depot and a bus, which all 30 minutes to Heraklion drives. The journey costs €1.50 and takes about 20 minutes. There one can well shoppen to go, many people are traveling and the harbor is definitely worth a visit. The beach is about 5 minutes walk away from the hotel, this is however liable to pay the costs. For an umbrella and two beach chairs you pay 15 Euro. However a few yards away to the left, leads to the restaurant Golden Beach with a private beach, where you can free beach chairs. The staff there are very friendly and the drinks even to the couch. Directly besides it there is a wassersportgeschäft, here you can even surfing to learn. Otherwise it is possible jet ski drive, pedal boats and so something like banana boat.

    I have never had such a bad experience with a buffet as in this hotel! For such a large hotel area is the selection of food absolutely insufficient. Breakfast: there was only one sort of bread and rolls, the same dough is made. Indefinable, whether bread or wheat. There was only one sort of sausage, cheese and cereals. The best at the breakfast were the chocolate and lemon cakes. Lunch and dinner: the buffet was relatively large, but the main courses twice offered. In between was a label available, the food was mostly however indefinable. There was only one salad dressing, but the cucumbers bone and the tomatoes overly fleshy and zerrupft were. Even noodles with tomato sauce were inedible, as the pasta hopelessly overcooked and the sauce absolutely tasteless was, as you with plenty of water watered down was. Every meal was lukewarm to cold water stored and really everything was diluted with water: sauces, drinks... We were each day on the watermelon and ate us remember full. The desserts were also delicious, there are different variations of creams, ice cream, cake and oranges. On every table was a pot of water to drink, the water probably from the pool came: time with more chlorine, time with more water. In a week there was only once local cuisine : Gyros with pita. The Gyros consisted mainly of fat, you could but good food.

    Within a week there was a so-called cretan evening, but we didn't go there. The hotel guests have the beach chairs at the pool or in front of the sleeping reserved. Beach chairs were very uncomfortable and there were much too few umbrellas. The lifeguard cleared at regular intervals the garbage, which the guests left, on.

The hotel itself made a solid impression, even if the pool was a little small was. There is free wireless internet in the foyer, where you but as good as never came in, because it constantly most of them children, but also adult one besieged. To the beach one goes over a reasonably busy street (from the noise you get but nothing in the hotel). The chairs at the beach are against fee, at the pool without fee, it is there however also a little busy. The pool was but always clean, has a nonswimmer range, in which children good ... and then to on the other side down up to 3 metres water depth. In the hotel there were a large proportion of russian (nice) guests to visit. As in the summary to read, the hotel i would despite friendly staff unfortunately do not further-recommend.

    First room: too small, bed was directly from two walls left and right surrounded, so that one only from the foot of the bed was. After a downpour under water (1st floor), but a new one. The room was but only one day long a bit-aired, then there were however already again new guests... I was very surprised, as it really is wet and smelled musty. Closet has no shelf space-but only a hängefläche, what i didn't liked. Tv was available, but quite small. Refrigerator available, the us great services proven has! Bathroom is very small, in the shower with curtain you can hardly move. Toilet does not properly. Balcony was the whole day in the shade of trees directly outside, therefore could clothes sometimes not so dry. 2. rooms: bigger than the first, one came from both sides into the bed, but two singles pushed together beds. From the balcony partial view to the sea! Tv was still smaller than in the first room, refrigerator was also available and the closet was the same as in the first room, as was the bathroom. Air conditioning worked only in 2. rooms immaculate, but good services proven.

    Very decent and friendly staff, the effort, for his guests to take care of it. It by almost all the employees spoke english, german and of course greek spoken (other languages i didn't directly received). The rooms were cleaned daily, were always happy with it. Activities for children does not exist, other sport possibilities were rather not, the pool table was broken and you could only table tennis play, whereby each evening the ball was missing. A deduction due to not well-organized and handled dining.

  • Gastronomy

    Quality of the dishes: we enjoyed the food unfortunately not, although we were not picky. The drinks were all very strongly sweetened, tasted but also more after water than something else. The cleanliness and hygiene was not respected (everywhere very dirty tablecloths, cutlery was above with hands, dirty tablecloths were further use simply turned over). Tasty food was gone and not sufficiently cooked has been. There are cocktails in the house and at the pool, but they are only in small plastic cups served and tasted unfortunately not (very sweet); it was soft, as well as alcoholic cocktails three different variants. Meal times are 7:00 until 9:30 o'clock (with us, was after a week for the holiday season on 10 hours increased) in the morning, from 12:00 until 14:00 for lunch, and 18:30 until 21:00 o'clock in the evening. It is worthwhile but really, in the directly neighboring small restaurant to go, as the food is fantastic tastes, the prices were very affordable and the owner hospitality largely writes (for example, some languages, and presents its guests with great things).

    Distance to the beach: 200 meters. One goes over a reasonably busy street (from the noise you get but nothing in the hotel). Distance to the airport: 10 kilometer, you can on the beach the planes taking off see. I felt but didn't bother us. Restaurant and gift shops are directly next to the hotel to find, even with a walk in the road or down are some restaurants and small shops. Night life we couldn't find. Excursions were worthwhile, directly at the tour operator ask or offered appointment on the day after arrival notice.

Beach chairs at the beach and at the pool were in good condition. The showers also, whereas in the 2. the room holder for the shower head was broken. The shower was too small, since you are actually not in it could move.

Positive is the good greek very varied cuisine. The staff shortages (1 person/bar) completely overstrained The hotel is daily cleaned in the morning, but the nature of the guests (80% former soviet union and many children) is already at lunch many things decrepit. The tablecloths and always in the dining room... Are turned... Is very regrettable that the all inclusive guests a blue band also the children, which unfortunately without restriction alcoholic drinks To note is that these young people hardly through family be supervised. On the beach no offer... Drinks... Etc. Pp. Is also very narrow read hotel review
