    The location is exquisite with luxury and relaxation on tap. The beach is very private with swimming and watersports readily available

  • 6.2

    we like location & beach, sea was on 5 *, massages & stuff in spa was good as well.

    Service very poor, nobody on arrival told us about brackfast area, or even facilities... lift to beach & restaraunts was terrible (hot without conditioner) and there is no other way... Spa was quite old & threadbare not for 5* hotel..

    Excellent place ! Much better than Elounda best hotels. Staff very helpful and kind. Very good cuisine. Beautiful design, quality facilities. Despite size of ca 250 rooms you feel like in a boutique hotel. Worth to come.

    Spa is rather dull: not to this hotel standard and undesftaffed.

    It was a relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

    The absence of sandy beach as well as the very windy weather was quite a disapointment - I think it should have been mentioned on hotel advertising and internet site. Private pool water were too cold to get into. The mattrasse, blanckets and pillows should have been of better qyuality (feders?) appropriate for such luxury hotel.

    Plenty of space and very nice staff.

    The funicular train,slow always had to wait. Greek restaurant. Very poor,worst meal I had in Greece the the three weeks this time.

    Absolutely loved the location in Elounda, the five minute walk to the Plaka village, where we had some of the most beautiful and fresh fish meals ever. The layout of the Hotel was truly amazing and the choice of the 4 restaurants was excellent. Breakfast was the highlight of the day. Staff were so accommodating & helpful in every way, from checking in to housemaids this is certainly a 6star experience and would recommend it to anyone wanting a truly magical experience.

    Location, friendly staff, good atmosphere

    - Paid wifi. -We have been charged for items from minibar, which we did not consumed. Based on our objection this bill have been cancelled, but caused delay of the chech out

    Very good

    The service was good. Beautiful surroundings and great with towles being provided at the beach. Food was excellent.

    The fact you had to book for the restaurants in the evening, which were often fully booked so you were left stranded with no where to eat (no restaurants nearby really - Unless you wanna go to the fishing village) And when we had booked and arrived at restaurants there were almost always empty (or at least plenty of tables available) from 7 until 9 so it didnt make sense at all. There is a VERY HOT lift to take you to the different levels of the hotel, there is only one and its always packed and took forever (about 15 min) each time we were waiting for it. There was no stairs so no other option to get to hotel room (unless you walk around the hotel on the roads)

    An absolutely wonderful hotel! The location is breathtaking overlooking the bay! The staff are extremely friendly, polite and always there to cater to your every need. The rooms are spotless and spacious. The hotel has three restaurants and a great bar where you can enjoy a drink in the evening overlooking the island of Spinalonga. Overall a great hotel! Would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a great relaxing holiday!

    Only one small complaint: free internet is offered only in the reception area and at the bar. If you wish to have internet in your room you have to pay for it (50 euros flatrate). Thats a bit annoying, I think such a luxury hotel should offer free internet to its guests everywhere on site.

    Подогреваемый бассейн и терраса в номере в мае -это да! Heating pool and terrace in the room -it's a must and wonderful!

    There is only one restaurant where we can have lunch and there was poor menu

    Horrible service. Poor food (except the restaurant Blue Door). Incredibly lazy staff.

  • 10.0

    This hotel/resort is amazing, one of the best I have stayed in ever and I have stayed in many all over the world! The staff are exceptional, so welcoming and helpful, they make you want to never ever leave. The entire resort is so exquisite, the furnishings and decor simply stunning, now as for the views, well they don't get much better than this, with Spinalonga island just across the bay. The sunsets here are simply stunning...what can I say, except cannot wait to come back soon.

  • 9.0

    peaceful, quiet, good place to relax

    1.The greek restaurant should have a cover for the raining days; 2.The rooms should have acoustic insulation; 3. Should have more variety of fruits at breakfast; L'orangerie restaurant is not good for the price, the service is uncoordinated and bad.

    The rooms were miles from the beach and you had to take a very hot gondala to reach the sandy and very windy beach. This involved queuing and waiting and if you left something in your room it was a half hour round trip. All the private pools in the suites do not have the correct aspect and were shaded by midday. Restaurants were poor and the people were not service orientated at the spa, restaurants or front desk.
