We based on the prospektangaben and the information, the we found on the net, of course from the beginning a wonderful hotel. These expectations are in many respects still been exceeded. The hotel belongs to some of the most beautiful and best, which we had in greece. Exactly we know it is not, but it's probably about 200 rooms, so capacity for approximately 400 guests.

After the good reviews here we were unfortunately disappointed by this hotel and especially the area. (TUI-retort place). The size and the direct access to the beach, and the beautiful garden area are the only positive. Food, rooms and entertainment didn't convince us at all. I would recommend this hotel only very limited recommend it! …  read hotel review

A beautiful hotel plant, despite their age in top condition. We will definitely go back there again! All the staff were always tried hard to fulfill the wishes of the guests. Room (bungalow) was a good size and was in great condition, daily cleaning included towel service and you wanted. Food very varied, when the national courts in our opinion a bit too short. But there were at the buffet a special corner, where typical cretan/greek ingredients and spices were offered. The resort itself is gorgeous. Much lawns on which one everywhere one of the numerous existing pool chairs could ... use. Much shade by the great arrangement of trees and shrubs. A very quiet resort, a despite full allocation always a feeling of relaxation felt. Since the building only e+1 have, fits the area in the tree and strauchumgebung and is quite understated. Also at the beach were, at any time of day always free beach chairs and sonnenschirmplätze available. The beach itself is always clean and tidy. The overall impression is good, we can easily imagine this resort tantly to visit. read hotel review

    Exercise equipment i would swap, together safe from the early phase of the hotels. Otherwise, the beach was super, always enough pool chairs and umbrellas available.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    For the size of the area very sufficient capacity of the main restaurant, as well as the two specialty restaurants. Everything was always clean and well maintained. The food in the main restaurant in buffet form - okay in terms of taste. Could still a bit more country typical dishes stand.

  • Room
    6.0

    Everything you need. Functioning, sufficiently large refrigerator, safe, telephone, working air conditioning system, flat screen monitor. Tischmöbel from olive wood, not super modern but in great condition, beds as well. Everything was always clean (daily reinigug of the room and the bathroom), as well as to request hand and you wanted

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is located outside the ' haligali mile' and therefore very quiet and pleasant. Direct beach location. Who other than food to enjoy wants - within 5 - minute walk are several typical greek tavernas. Supermarket is also to foot in the proximity. After malia - walk circa 15-20 minutes. The old city center around the beautiful church (inside) was worth it to watch. In order to further way to heraklion to come, provided that no rental car available, is before the hotel a bus station. Drive to heraklion about 1 hour to the sensational price of 3.80 euro. Terminus in heraklion, right on the harbor, close to the old town, museums, and shopping malls. Otherwise, with a rental car, the location of the hotel good starting point for many excursions in the surrounding and further afield.

In the catalogs should be, the very katzenfreundlich and a cat-café betriebt. Does not mean, however, the cats. You took care of that. Is bad, some guests not on the indications and my, the cats in the restaurant or in the foyer feed to have. But still, it is not disturbing. Only for total katzengegner should demand a reference be appropriate. Otherwise just woohlfühl atmosphere. read hotel review

During our stay at the september 2013 the average age of the guests was roughly about 55 years, the guests came about 80% from german speaking countries (germany, austria, switzerland), about 10% from russia, about 10% from other countries (italy, france). read hotel review
  • Sport & Leisure
    6.0

    Free sports offered during our stay: O beach volleyball O table tennis O darts O stretching O aqua fitness O 'aqua zumba' O nordic walking O fitness on the beach (with free weights) There is a rather unobtrusive entertainment, the respective offered invites. A kids club was available, for lack of own children, the thereby had been, i can but nothing say. The sand - and partly rocky beach was clean, beach chairs and umbrellas were in sufficient number and free of charge. You must not therefore fight. Also showers (with there were foot showers too) and changing rooms on the beach. There is a main, as well as a mäanderartig landscaped ancillary pool. Everything was exceptional clean and well maintained. Showers, changing rooms and toilet facilities at the main pool available, the ancillary pool only toilets.

  • Service
    6.0

    The staff was very friendly, helpful and with partly quite sufficient, partly even perfect german mistake. The rooms are - as usual - once daily cleaned very carefully. Daily (!) Is in the morning, a physician in the hotel available. Whether the only during our stay so was (because the average age as higher), we do not know however. With complaints was polite handled, our request after a room change (because our original rooms in the main building obenhalb the bar and the pool was - see more under tips) as promptly as possible, the luggage even from the staff to the new room.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    There was a main restaurant, where the meals were eaten, also a specialty restaurant (which we however never visited), a - only over lunch open restaurant between a pool and the beach, a bar in the main building, as well as a smaller bar on the beach. The - in the main restaurant always in form of a buffet - offered dishes are impecable quality, quantity and variety, it means literally positive stress, itself choose to 'must'. Everything is spotlessly clean and hygienic flawless. The cuisine was - for our terms: fortunately! - essentially typical for the country, because dishes from home we can at home get. Particularly attractive is a 'cretan corner', where specially typical cretan dishes. Very attentive, we have classified, that it also heated plate gives, also small napkins, so that you the burns. The service is excellent, friendly, obliging, sometimes with the abservieren of the plates even too fast. Extremely welcoming atmosphere in this restaurant. - well, evenly hotelbedingt - somewhat high prices for beverages can relax at the end of stay perhaps a nice sum dehumanise. A 1 litre bottle of mineral water without carbonic acid during our stay 1.90 euros. The hotel is on the basis of a final bill worked. You pay for the services anywhere with cash (but only at the check out cash or credit card) and the question of the tip only then, if one for one ratio separate tips to leaf wants, but not expected.

  • Room
    5.0

    Rooms are for our terms absolutely sufficiently large, tv, air conditioning, minibar, kettle (with coffee and tea bags), and telephone were available. The counter - and possibilities hanging space for clothes are limited. Each room has a small balcony or a terrace with two seating, as well as beach chairs and a table. Bathroom and toilet are in a common room, the could be a little bit bigger. Storage space for toiletries are rather poor. Anyhow, the bathroom and toilet very clean.

  • Location
    6.0

    The beach is literally part of the hotel plant, in between there is no road to cross, it is completely within easy reach. From the airport one must drive on a transfer time of around an hour then, if you with the bus of the tour operator spent is, because other hotels were driven to. The hotel was located completely still outside of malia, the 'old' place was a bit more than a mile away, as well as the 'new' district, where it numerous entertainment, shopping and dining possibilities. In the immediate vicinity there were several smaller supermarkets and restaurants, but no activities for notedly night owls. Public buses are very rarely directly from the hotel, very often but in the 'old' malia.

  • Location
    3.0

    The direct beach location is very nice, beach chairs and umbrellas are enough available and since you to the hotel, also in vain. The only thing one could be disturbing, the stones in the sea. But there is a place, where one without problems without stones into the sea. The location is actually not at all. Malia, the you in about 20 minutes walk (not a nice way!) , is more than ugly! The place is only for englishmen to the party laid out and quite run down. It is a pure retorts tourist-place, with Greece nothing to do. Typical greek tavernas if you here in vain. There in the evening comfortably which drink is not at all! The shops are to 75% from luftmatratzenläden and car rentals.

    The pool area is very nice, there is enough deckchairs and umbrellas. The entertainment is rather bad, during the day one must itself care where, when and what is, the animators have a rather rarely invited. The evening entertainment but it was still much worse! But due to the bad situation was forced the every evening to look at as you otherwise only on the room would sit there. At our travel time (early september) were the local in Malia already largely empty and partly closed. We know that from other greek hotels much better (comparison hotel Neptune on Kos). The entire range of leisure and sports activities from 5 persons (three italians, a polish woman and a latvian) organised and carried out. These are also responsible for the kids care. That such a small number of people, the also only one season in the hotel no particularly good quality deliver is of course.

  • Service
    2.0

    The service in the main restaurant is rather uncoordinated, there were many waiters there but you still have to sometimes a while to wait until you were served! If you're lucky, one gets then a friendly waiters /-but often they are rather unfriendly! We had no language problems, some of them spoke german, most definitely english. The room cleaning was improvement worthy! We had our first kind of change rooms since it was dingy and dirty. The cleaning lady our problem didn't understand and burst simply without announcement in our room as we were moved. They made no effort to go until we were finished, but discussed frisky mood los. Customer service goes differently...

  • Gastronomy
    2.0

    We only used the main restaurant, since we had booked half board. The food and quality of the courses could around some be better, often the food is only lukewarm and not very tasty! In 10 days there was only once a greek dinner. Cleanliness and hygiene are in wide teiling in order. But what did doesn't work, the cats in the outdoor area around (particularly bad the space on the wall, look there you directly to the plate). The atmosphere in the interior resembles strongly of a cafeteria, the outdoor area was attractively decorated. The atmosphere during the meal is strongly from the public subject. For russian guests couldn't behave and the buffet deface the hotel cannot do anything.

    Size of the room (bungalow) is in order. Decor is run down and very simple! We were very disappointed of it and thought on the first day it would be a mistake. Then we have a different hotel, but it was just as equipped. Storage space for the clothes does not give it actually at all. The bathroom is no 4 star standard! There was only a bathtub with a separate shower. Much too small, too dark and too old! The air conditioning was much too loud noise, the tv is with 17' still very small in the distance, the beds are extremely hard.
