We just came from a 7 days Holiday from Sentido Blue Sea Beach. We enjoyed every single day there and we already missing the good times we had. Now, for a more detailed review I will use positive and negative signs : + The staff is great, from the cleaning lady witch comes daily, to the chicken and restaurant staff and the animation team (my daughter was very happy at the mini club), they all smiles and salutes you. Rating: 10 + The location is right across a secondary road from the beach. Rating :9 - That secondary road is something to take in consideration if you have small children. + The food is good, with many salads, traditional (I like the cheeses especially) and European foods, great deserts,fresh orange juice, you have always something good to eat and a la carte restaurant is great. Rating :9 +/- The beach is a mix between sand and rocks. The right side is fine sand and somehow narrow (1-5 rows of sunbeds), but with a gentle entrance in the see. The left side is rocky and narrow. The waves are moderate to big, especially if is very windy. Rating: 8 +/- The room in the main building that we had was on the second floor with a very nice sea view but the negative part is the noise from the road, especially at night. 8 Mine recommendation to the hotel is to have more sunbeds on the grass areas. All in all we had a great time and we recommend this hotel.

We have been to this hotel a number of times and it is a nice hotel, set in great surroundings and is always kept SPOTLESS. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. There have been a few changes since our last visit, the choice and quality of drinks on offer is much better, the food was of a better quality, particularly breakfast where the re-introduction of cooked to order omelette's and pancakes was welcome. There has been a card system introduced and it must be displayed when ordering drinks etc, and I am aware that a lot of hotels now use that system, but one of the outstanding points of this hotel was always that it was relaxed, unfortunately the card system makes for long delays at the bar, not something I enjoy. All in all a good hotel which has seen an improvement in quality but to the detriment of the overall laid back atmosphere which drew back so many people year after year

Just got back from a fantastic 11 days at this resort.Set in lovely well kept gardens in traditional greek style,lovely pool and across the road from the beach all very relaxing. The rooms were very clean with soft and fluffy towels changed every day.We had a room with sea view and it was beautiful to see the sun rising.The food was really good with plenty of choice and the a la carte restaurant was just amazing with Maria and Irene that just can't do enough for you.But most of all was the welcoming and friendliness of the managers and all the staff. Always smiling and helpful.It was my friend's birthday and Sofia (the lovely waitress)suggested a birthday cake at lunchtime,the manager took it to our table and everyone sang happy birthday making it very special and the happy barman at the Blue Bar always making sure we had our drinks before running to catch his bus at 11pm. One downside was that we never spent a day round the pool because of people putting their towels very early in the morning before going back to bed and often not going back till 11. I think the management should consider a policy where towels cannot be left unattended till 8am or they will be removed as I have seen in many other resorts so we can all have the chance.This issue has not putting me off going back to this resort.

We've had a fantastic holiday! Rooms were very clean, very good service in the restaurants and bars. We also want to thank the girls from the animation team and mini club. They are very friendly and good with children.
Heraklion enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with glorious hot summers characterised by blue skies and blazing sun. The summer months are the best for getting on the beach, while spring is fresher with bursts of wild flowers in the countryside. The autumn is pleasant, and it is only in the winter that the weather turns grey, wet and sometimes cold.
