OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel is located on Crete's north coast between the port city of Heraklion and Agios Nikolaos on a main road that offers easy access to both of them plus key towns such as Malia. Conveniently, buses for these destinations stop outside the hotel.

By plane: flights from London and Manchester take under 4 hours. A taxi will take 25 minutes from the airport. Free parking on-site. Book flights to Heraklion.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

A lot of care has clearly been put into the design of the hotel, indicated by the use of natural materials like stone and wood, uplifted by steel and big bold sheets of glass.

THE FACILITIES

The hotel has three restaurants, bars and beach bars, boutiques, swimming pools and a beach. It has a large gym with modern equipment and the spa is unusually extensive. There are lounge areas, a library and cigar room, and sister hotel Nana Golden Beach has a kids' club, waterpark, sports' club, tennis and padel courts.
