Food in hotel was good and well up to standard. Plenty of fresh produce and something for all palets. Two al a carte restaurants on site one of which was first class for food and service.The other Aldemar Tarverna we thought just lacked the standard tht the rest of the hotel had in both quality of food and service. Maybe we picked the wrong night!
The staff were all very keen to help and most spoke excellent english.
The hotel has a full entertainment programme if you want it. you are not pushed or forced to take part. shows on every night form productions of Cats and Chicago to fun shows for the kids. Greek BBQ night very good and worth the money.
The lack of fellow brits at this hotel was refreshing. Cosmopolitan feel with Russian, Italian, French and Greek phrases to practice.

The staff here cant do enough for you, very friendly and helpful particularly in the restaurant. As others have mentioned though the drinks are Very expensive.
The entertainments team were lively and enthusiastic. throughout the day there was an extensive programme of activities but the night times left ALOT to be desired.
Hotel bars were generally very quiet.
Spent several nights in the centre of Hersonisos which was about a 20minute walk away, a long way with young children!

Drink is totally overpriced and going to a bar at night was like going to a wake. The place dies at 10 o'clock
Now the staff are ok. My wife and I were there on honeymoon and once we arrived to our room (which was lovely) we noticed that there were 2 single beds. We asked staff for a double - do you know what they did! They pushed the 2 beds togther....
The hotel village is lovely - not very child friendly as there are steps everywhere and in the buffet it was all adult orientated.
Thank God we found a cheap tavera up the hill.
I was ready to hang myself - the children club reps treated the adults like morons....
All in all its ok but it certainly didnt feel 5*.

The food was nice but nothing to write home about. Extras were quite pricey.
All in all, we enjoyed it very much and would love going back.

Stayed in a recently refurbished garden view room but had a nice sea view as well.Extremely comfortable with regular cleaner - towels changed every day and linen twice during the week.Equipped with a fridge and aircon.
Food OK without being inspired - fish night buffet was particularly poor but on the other hand Greek buffet night was good value.
Had upgraded meal at the "gourmet" restaurant - very good but extremely expensive.
All drinks were the big let down - alcoholic or soft-not included in half board and priced way over the top - 500% mark up on bottled water in the restaurant and beer at

Food first class. Wine expensive but local cafe 100 yards was really cheap.
Very cosmopolitan although dearer than other place in Crete.
Overall this is good value for money. If you want a wee bit of class stay here.

was about 1km from the center of town(not upto much)and on the beach. the hotel is next door to the other 5 star hotels and they all looked very nice too.
the hotel was clean and airy with huge pool and bunglows spreadout over the location.
there is a mixed crowd as you would expect-greek,spanish,german, russin ect.
the hotel food was ok, done the job but have had better. prices were steep for both drinks and food, we found little local place 100yards from the entance and it was smashing.
we had our 2yr old and there was mini disco and entertainment at night for the young uns, so this keep all happy.
overall, is a good hotel, bit pricey but clean, on beach, nice staff but on outskirts(no noise or hassle) of a tacky and busy resort.
worth a punt for week or so of lying on beach.
