Editorial review:

This resort faces the Mediterranean and Spinalonga and has charming rooms, most of which have their own saltwater pools and verandas, enabling guests to sunbathe in private. The spa is incredible and the staff is amazing. Some felt that it's too isolated, seeing as it's about an hour from the airport. It's open from April 23rd to October 30th.

                                            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.

                                            Amazing private beach. Worth taking an island suit! Beautiful stabbing views and crystal clear water.

                                            Some of the staff was slow and quite useless, however the front desk manager was amazing and most helpful. If something needs sorting , don't waste time speak directly to her. food in hotel restaurants I felt was poor and it was cold, almost like it was from a buffet rather then specially prepared for one. So my advise, take a taxi and go into town which is 10 min away and enjoy fresh seafood.

                                            A very luxurious resort which was extremely clean and well kept. Excellent views from the hotel across the sea to watch the sunrise.

                                            The hotel is very large and so sometimes lacks the excellence of a "personal touch"
