3* service

Posted Sep 1, 2016 on Hotels
This hotel deliver 3* service but charges 5* prices. Excellent location, water park, family room and beach. Unfortunately food is not good, drinks poor, all self service, restaurant too small, appalling dress code and encourages bad behaviour If you want a 3* where the kids run wild. this hotel will be ideal. However, if you appreciate global 4 or 5* service. then this isn't for you very disappointing service from a potentially excellent location and facility

A truly relaxing holiday

Posted Jul 31, 2016
We arrived very late, but the receptionist very kindly still offered us dinner. The staff are extremely efficient friendly and very hard working. The facilities available at Fodele make ones experience truly relaxing as there is a 'look no further' approach to everything. Within a day the kids became familiar with everything and we felt very safe and looked after.

Weekend of laughs

Posted Aug 22, 2015 on Hotels
The room was a little outdated but the facilities of the hotel made up for it. The water park and pools were a lot of fun, as were the all inclusive cocktails. The service and assistance from staff around the grounds was great and made moving luggage and getting to the room much easier.

The staff especially the animation team are fab!

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Pros: animation team
Cons: The restaurant was chaos! This has definitely got to be improved. More choice of food and theme nights!¬
Disappointment alround. The rooms were cramped. The resturant was noisy and you had to wait for every meal to get a table and a lot of rude guests who would barge infront of you to get food. On one evening people were literally fighting over plates and there were huge queues for some food! The one and only restaurant can not cope with the amount of people. Also the hotel website led us to believe that there were two other restuarants to choose from for the all inclusive but you actually had to pay extra for these. The food was ok but the menu rarely changed (we were there for 10 days!) nightmare! For all inclusive guests the bar stopped free drinks at 11pm, after that you had to pay!! not great when you are enjoying yourselves with older children who wanted to stay up until midnight. The water park was ok. The big positive was the animation team who put on a great variety of activites. They were always smiling and great fun to be around. OUr kids absolutely loved them!!

Idyllic but would not know u were in Greece. Did not play one Greek song in 5 days. Some workers were foreigners who didn't speak Greek. Waterpark attendants excellent and went beyond the call of duty! Guests snooty and I'll mannered.

Lovely resort, loads to do

Posted Aug 16, 2014
This is a lovely and lively place for a family holiday. Loads to do or equally, easy to chill out and relax. Because there is do much sunbed space around the pools and on the beach it never felt overcrowded even though it is a big hotel. Enthusiastic animation team. Try and get a room close to the Reception area otherwise it's a long walk up!

Vacation with the kids

Posted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: All included, friendly staff, many optional outdoor activities, numerous pools, wide selection of foods and drinks, waterslides, modern equipped rooms
Cons: No shampoo in the bathroom (only soap), caterpillar issues, toilet mechanism gets jammed often
Location: Heraklion (0.5 hour drive), Xania (Chania) - 1.5 hour drive, Fodele village is near by (2km) and Melidoni cave (30 min. drive)
This is truly a resort, with many facilities and activities. Overall I enjoyed my stay. Pro's: Spacious modern rooms with lcd tv's and free mini-bar. All included. Many outdoor activities, large selection of pools, beach activities and water slides. Hotel staff is courteous, fast and efficient. Wide selection of foods at all meals. Cocktail bar is included, and the staff there is fast and friendly. Con's: The hotel/resort is built on a mountain, so if your room is distant from the reception it may take you some time to reach the main restaurant, pool and the parking facility through the maze of stairs, and a long climb awaits you on your way back. The shower does not contain any shampoo or conditioner, only soap (so bring your own shampoo before your visit). Fruits and vegetables are fresh and good. The cooked food is about average. There is hardly any 3G cellular reception (Local Wind Mobile operator has the best reception), and WiFi prices are not cheap. Safe costs around 4 Euros per day. Caterpillars find their way into the room several times a day, though harmless, it is an annoyance.

Like a cheap carnival cruise

Posted Sep 3, 2009 on Hotels
Rooms are awful. (like a motel 6) Only recommending feature was the water slides but needed more people to supervise so they could all be open during the day instead of half in the morning and the other half in the afternoon. Meals like college cafeteria (not a good college-very little modification) with the exception of the Morning crepes which were excellent
