Delightful, friendly, characterful hotel. Each room with its own balcony or patio area, ensuite, air conditioning. Plenty places to get a coffee or cool drink all day, very good terrace restaurant open all day above the pool area under shady olive trees. Shop for water, biscuits, ice creams, small craft shop, museum, forge etc (showing old village artefacts) all within the hotel as part of the village. Staff were all polite, helpful and friendly. Pool is beautiful altho' watch the shallow sloping edges when entering for the first time! Only downside was one evening (until 4am) of loud music due to a Greek Wedding in the dining/event area at the top of the village. Ear plugs would have sorted that one out easily. Apart from that, our group had a fabulous, relaxing holiday in an unusual setting and would recommend it.

Come here for the experience. It is inconvenient in location and a bit thin on facilities but that's not the point. The point is having some semblance to living in a rural Cretan village on stone floors amid winding narrow lanes deep in the country with goats on the hills all around. The only reason I can't give it a full five is it doesn't go deep enough; the open-air exhibits are small and there's no-one around to explain them. Oh and make no mistake; it is very comfortable and if you have a car then day trips will work out just fine.

Like the location and environment, and of course the food and services in the restaurant in the site. We would go back again if we will travel to there again.
