    The hotel is beautiful, comfortable, and the service is impeccable. We had a really nice time there. The extras, such as watersports and spa/massages are on the pricey side but the quality is excellent.

    Very good

    The rooms are big, clean and pleasant. The breakfast and the food served at the beach bistro is very good. We had no problems during our stay.

    Very nice place! Good services, good food. For a Greece, one of the best.

    Other side services as car rental or taxi is horrible

    fantastic! Very beautiful resort, attention to detail, very tasteful decoration in our villa. Loved the sea water pool, so much nicer than the stink of chlorine. The beds and pillows were some of the most comfortable i've experienced in a hotel. We had dinner at Kafeneion, the setting was beautiful, the food tasty, and the staff very helpful and charming. The gym was well equipped, the spa looked great (no time to try it), all areas of the resort were lovely, and the breakfast was sumptuous. We are definitely going to be back :)

    nothing, it was all perfect

    Excellent service, and very helpful staff. Full amenities with no need to leave the resort unless you wish to explore the area. 3 minutes from Ag. Nikolaos center by car, and 10 minutes from Elouda.

    The private pool was rather private albeit affording a reasonable sea view; the pool was of respectable dimensions also. The service was helpful and willing. A complimentary expresso machine, dayly water bottle, chocolate treat, internet and cable tv in the room (but see below for the latter two) were nice. The "Bonaccia" seaside bar was good. The barman was GOOD, fast, accurate, and impeccably smart. Prices were appropriate (perhaps only here and at Kafenion restaurant). If you do go, try "Greek Elixir". Kafenion restaurant was good, perhaps a scant menu, but everything was perfect and plentiful; the very place was more than just satisfactory. I may have not used much but the reflexology treatment and reichi-inspired treatment acquired at Poseidon spa were exactly what I had needed. GOOD therapist. The place is suitably SILENT, and placed so as to allow only the sea to be heard constantly (mine was room 404, private pool suite).

    For a resort of this kind... Internet must always work, and do so well, in the room; this it did not, never. The cable tv should do likewise; break downs and poor signal were commonplace. Likewise, showers are to be made such as to allow bathromms to remain dry; not here. In bathrooms, the "Bidet", and the electricity outlet MUST both work. Room lighting must be central: the key pocket by the door SHOULD act as general phase, and removal of the key should switch off ALL and ANY appliances/lights: a walk about the large room was necessary, in alternative to resignation. The room's finish had an asssembled look, much of the solutions appeared to have been "concocted" on the spot: a makeover with little funding? Not good for over 600 E per night The floor at poolside, in the suite, was inadecuate: a rough stone base pave (great for driveways), largely responsible for the deterioration of chairs and loungers (which would dance and wobble, preventing much of the expected comfort) in the private terrace. The check in was inadecuate, at such prices, someone other than yourself MUST take your documents, fill in whatever forms be of requirement, and return you your credentials AT your room: I have been unabashedly required to do the papers myself and only then have been escorted to the room. The breakfast table was good, no mistale about it, but somewhat monotonous (I have stayed 7 nights). A bit overpriced, unlike Blue Bay Palace at Plaka (Elounta), and in need of some attention.

    Everything! as a couple on our honeymoon we received so many complimentary gestures from the hotel staff and management and that really made our 2 nights there so amazing. The hotel manager took us to our room when we arrived, The spa is amazing the dinner at the Minotaur restaurant along with a Sax player playing jazz was romantic and amazing, defiantly an experience my wife and i will not forget.

    everything was great

    Sehr freundliches Personal und sehr gepflegte Anlage

    Essensangebot ist überteuert und entspricht nicht der Qualität eines SLH, vor allem das HP Angebot! Taxi Transfer vom Hotel organisiert 105 Euro, besser im Internet buchen 65Euro!

    Sehr , sehr sauber. Erholung und Entspannung für die ganze Familie. Personal sehr nett und freundlich. Tolles Frühstück. Abendessen auch Spitze, aber sicherlich überteuert.

    Die Standard Zimmer sind zwar sehr sauber gehalten aber schon "heruntergekommen" und nicht 5 Sterne Wert. Ältere, teilweise mangelhafte Ausstattung und Möbel.
