Pools

The pool offering includes a big, lagoon-like number, a slightly quieter one fringed by palm trees, and a salt-water pool right next to the beach. There's also a trio of poolside bars, so you won't need to go far for a cocktail.

Pool Scene

The hotel's waterpark ticks off curvy chutes, big, bowl-shaped slides, and a near-vertical free fall. Little ones won't miss out either. They'll find their own enormous splash zone, complete with everything from slides and fountains to waterfalls, tilting buckets and a water-spurting volcano.

Food & Drink

Around-the-world buffets are on offer at the main restaurant. As well as daily specials, there’s a Cretan corner where you can try local dishes. Elsewhere, you’ve got three à la cartes and the occasional beach barbecue.

A huge golden Buddha is the centrepiece in the Asian restaurant. At the Greek Taverna, meanwhile, meals are served with a side-order of sea views. You’ve also got an al fresco Mediterranean* eatery.

Entertainment

The amphitheatre hosts children’s discos and themed shows in the evenings. Alternatively, you can head to the elegant lounge bar for post-sunset drinks.

Sports & Activities

The activities line-up includes things like archery and water polo. Plus, there’s two floodlit tennis courts.

Little ones are kept occupied by themed parties at the hotel-run kids’ club. Down at the beach, there’s a watersports centre* where you can sign up for windsurfing or rent a canoe.

Health & Beauty

Underneath the spa’s* glass-domed roof, you’ll find a circulation-boosting hydrotherapy pool, as well as a sauna and a steam room. Chocolate facials* and hot oil massages* are on the treatment list.

Running machines and weights are found in the gym*. There’s also a programme of fitness classes, including aqua-fit and aerobics.

Facility Overview

Five pools are nestled within the grounds, including a kids’ splash pool with slides and fountains. The buffet restaurant is the main hub for meals, but there’s also Asian, Mediterranean and Greek à la cartes. For daytime activities, you’ve got tennis courts, a scuba diving centre and a spa. At night-time, meanwhile, musical shows are on the agenda.
