We had a super 10 days here at the start of October. We arrived very late evening and were really impressed that a cold meat and cheese platter with greek salad was brought to the room for us. The room was lovely. Huge bed, sofa area and bathroom. The balcony was my favourite.

We stayed here as a couple (w/o kids) Location: The hotel is located on a hill with great views to the village of Plaka and the bay with Spinalonga island. You can take taxi or bus to Elounda or Agious Nikolaus, but if you want to do some exploring I'd recommend a rental car.

We stayed for 10 days and found it a good place to chill out. However it is a big resort and trying to do too much for too many. It would be better split into several smaller resorts with different standards. The rooms are lovely, the staff great, the view amazing but the beach

Our family stayed in the Royal Blue Villa for a week. We absolutely loved it. It was a beautiful view looking at the nearby island of Spinalonga. All the staff were polite and never got anything wrong. There were 5 restaurants, all with great food, and a brilliant private beach.

We moved as our first rooms were too close to the road and had our view obscured by trees. We ended up on the same level as the Flame restaurant - can’t remember their numbers unfortunately - but they were excellent. They were also handy for the lift to the main hotel.

Hi , yes there is a cash machine in the reception area. We didn’t have pool towels in our room but we didn’t have a private pool. I’m sure they would be available if you had a private pool. There are also plenty of pool/ beach towels without restriction.

Our room had a private plunge pool. We were facing Spinalonga and had sun over the pool until late afternoon but our terrace was built in and we only had sun until around lunchtime. We moved to the public pools around lunchtime but these were never very busy and always had sun beds available. Hope that helps

"Depends on time of year, later go North as there is a lack of morning sun"
"#387 has a large infiniti pool"
"All rooms face the sea but if you can afford it opt for one with a pool in the 200 or 300 range."
"I do not think any room would be bad....all excellent."
"We upgraded to the Superior Bungalow and were lucky enough to have a sea view too!"
