    The rooms of the hotel are very nice, spacious and elegant. The hotel was very big with many restaurants, pool bars, and beach bars!!! We stayed at 721 room which was excellent with pool and sea view. The clean lady came every day and the room was always clean and beautiful. Some rooms next to ours had private pool!!! We enjoyed our staying at this hotel very much. Breakfast is excellent and the staff of the hotel is helpful and kind!!! The first day of our staying they offered us for free a bottle of local wine and a basket of fresh fruits and as we saw this was an offer for every room... The beach is 5 meters away from the hotel. We believe that this is a truly 5 star hotel!!! Best location and value for money!!!

    This hotel is nice for pool lovers. Imperial rooms are nice decorated.

    Hotel bars were closing up early on the afternoon. You couldn't stay there and enjoy a drink. Spa facilities were not available on Sunday, so if you want to spend the weekend there just for that reason, you actually can't cause everything is closed.

    I enjoyed the tranquil environment of the hotel and the beautyful view from the balcony of my room on the 3rd floor (old section of the hotel).

    I didn't like the fact that the hotel is divided by a road into two separate sections, one old and one new (there is a footbridge connecting the two sections). The new one is located by the beach, but the rooms have no special view, whereas the old one is located around 200m from the beach but its rooms, especially the ones on the 2nd and 3rd floor, provide very nice view to the sea.

    Great room, cleanliness, terrific location, excellent staff. The hotel is truly top notch in every category.

    Well design hotel, the best in the area. Excellent room. Silent and big. We staid in the new bulding on seaside. Excellent breakfast on the see. Good service on the see. If you have a car, the hotel is quite close to Chania for a trip or a dinner in a beautiful historical city. Good organization of event in the evening inside the hotel. I would suggest to book a room with the swimming pool at the personal balcony.

    Almost all the nice services of the hotel were extra costs. Unfortunately for 3 days it was windy an we couldn't have a jump in the see, red flags. It seems quite usual in the area. The Hotel's swimming pools anyway were sufficient.

    Swimming pool

    Very noisy hotel, probably more suitable for families as kids running around. Hotel breakfast was below average and catered for bulk eating. This is by far not a five star hotel in every aspect, at best a four star. Considerably expensive relative to value we received.

    Hotel itself is very good, no question about it. Hotel staff was kind enough.

    There are sunbeds on the shore, looks nice, but just the sea is too rough.

    Honestly, we did not like a lot about this hotel which was way below expectations. Staff is friendly but not so organized. Food is good but twice more expensive than in best restaurants in Chania. Everything else was quite disappointing given the price.

    Overall a disappointing experience. Location is really bad between a noisy road and a low quality beach. Rooms with pool view in fact have a view on the parking lot. Published pictures do not really give an idea of how ugly the whole place and location are. The building we were in (huge) was completely empty and to find hotel staff you had to walk to the other building. In general not really a five star place. Very very expensive and several absurd rules: in a 5 star with breakfast included, an espresso should not come as an extra...
