Now approaching my fifth visit to this holiday destination. The whole staff are fantastic, warm and friendly. A super place for a holiday. With excellent entertainment. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff to make one's stay comfortable and enjoyable.

The Bar staff are a riot and soooo friendly.

The grounds are absolutely beautiful and kept very clean. The food here is fantastic, really had so much to choose from every day and night. The buffet was great and we also ate in the A la Carte restaurants too which was really lovely (one free visit per stay).

We stayed in a VIP Seafront bungalow on the first floor. The room itself was quite basic and not what I would call 4/5 star. Maybe a 3 star. But it was clean and we didn't spend too much time in there anyway. The view from the room was lovely though and we had our own semi private pool that only people staying in our small block had access to - it was nice and quiet and there were always free sunbeds. The pool was also right next to the bar which was great for regular trips for pina coladas!

There were also quite a range of activities to do at the beach - we did parasailing and the crazy sofa pulled along by a speedboat which was so fun.

There are also quite a range of excursions you can do. We went on a boat cruise and also did an overnight stay in Santorini which was amazing.

Overall, I would absolutely return again we had a really great time :)

This is a very busy family resort. Upon arrival we were told that the hotel was overbooked and we were given alternative accommodation in the sister 5 star hotel for the duration of the holiday. Therefore I cannot comment on the Cretan village accommodation however we were more than happy with the alternative. My aim was to give my kids a week by the pool / sea in the sun. The pools were great, the 70m slide very entertaining. The beach was fine pebbles and the edge of the sea was rocky. Most days the wind created choppy waves not ideal for small kids. On calm days the sea was perfect. Take water shoes and snorkels.The food was fine, the beach restaurant was really nice. The only thing that could be improved is coffee - very poor out of the machine. On a trip to the mountain villages we stopped in the taverna and had proper Greek coffee. I was not too impressed with the evening entertainment - very cheesy and one night totally inappropriate for a family resort. Just go for a walk along the beach or watch the sunset.

Very nice resort hotel with villas around the grounds. 2 pools and slide which entertained families. Nicely located with good access to the sea. Amazing food and excellent service. Evening entertainment. Approx 1.5 mile walk to town or car rental easy. Worth visiting Spinalonga and Agia Nicolaus - easily done in a day.

The hotel caters for 1000 when full so this is not a small boutique hotel. Other restaurants within the complex are worth a visit too.

I would recommend.

We were told by the agent that the paradise village part of the resort was more expensive as nicer and we could use all the facilities in the Amilia Mare side of the resort. However, whilst at the hotel the staff would not let us use the bigger and better Amilia Mare gym so we were stuck in the poorer Paradise Village gym. This is a nice hotel but it's a basic 4 star. It's a shame because I prefer good 4 star / 5 star and I'm prepared to pay for that. Issue like not having cutlery and water on the dining tables make meal times inconvenient. Also the restaurants aren't really restaurants in that there are no menus, it's just a buffet in a themed room. We didn't see many animation team activities either..

When booking a double bedroom I don't really expect two singles pushed together! Children were running around the bar after 9/10pm at night which was I felt inapprproate. Food was lovely and the resort was clean. Entertainment staff were very friendly and made the effort to get to know everyone at the resort. Perhaps we didn't do our research well enough but we wanted a couples only type holiday but this hotel clearly catered for children with clubs and entertainment and play areas all around the resort. So lovely for families but not ideal for couples.
