What the hotel did well… The room was ok – basic and a little tired but ok. The air con works well – the beds are comfy. The maids work hard to keep the rooms clean and fresh. Water plentiful and warm enough for showers – don’t drink it - use bottled from the fridge and buy extra if needed. Entertainment – they tried their best and it was funny in places - I’m not sure it was meant to be funny but the wigs and some of the costumes were hilarious. Chinese night – I really enjoyed the food on this themed night! It was the only night that offered something different. Shame about the pita bread instead of pancakes with duck … am I really asking too much for the kitchen to think these things through? Plenty of sockets for charging things – buy your 2 pin adaptors at home they seem expensive here and bring lots of cables. Wifi - amazing – best we have ever found abroad. Staff – mostly ok – worked hard and tried their best. What could be improved… Food – more variety needed especially things like bacon for breakfast and less pork at other meals; more fruit - apples, oranges, melon and occasional tiny kiwi fruits are not enough when that’s all they offer every day for lunch and tea – I ended up buying cherries, bananas, grapes and plums from the shop in town for some variety. More on the bacon – don’t come to this hotel if you want bacon for breakfast… do come if you like those highly spiced German sausages (acquired taste), strange looking cheeses, sweetcorn and chips for breakfast. We did not starve! There was enough food. There are also some lovely (but quite expensive) restaurants in Heraklion by the sea. Puddings – I expected things like baklava and other Greek pastries full of lovely sticky sweet honey for dessert. Silly me. Coffee – I drink decaf coffee. I had to go to a Starbucks to get my fix – no decaf in the hotel for all inclusive. There is a kettle and fridge for milk in the room – if I’d known I would have brought some. Starbucks also sold me the tastiest pudding I ate all week! Television in room – ok if you speak German / Russian or like BBC world news… we don’t. Bars – if you want to stay cool upstairs / on the balcony you have to walk a very long way to the pool bar for a drink during the day because the inside bar is shut. Smoking – I don’t but I was surrounded by smoke if I wanted to sit outside. The hotel needs to think about those of us who do not smoke. Spa – staff seemed nice enough but mithered constantly selling extra services for a lot of money – they approached us on the beach as well as by the pool. Perhaps if they dropped their prices they might get more customers… just a thought for the marketing department! Beach – we saw some that looked lovely – the one by the hotel is gravelly and not nice to walk on. Umbrellas / seats go very quickly and are kept with towels through the day. The special restaurant – oh dear. We walked out. It was awful. The food was so over salted even I couldn’t eat it and I like salt! My partner told them about his lactose intolerance and was offered soup with cream for a first course – not a good start. Plus you have to pay extra for wine which is free in the main restaurant… somebody hasn’t thought that one through. When we criticised the food we were surrounded by 2 staff members telling us we were wrong – not good. Crete as a holiday destination… We hired a car for the week – Europcar – read the small print - you will be hit by a 100E extra insurance charge or they put a big block on your credit card to cover accidents or extra expenses (pay the insurance – it’s honestly not worth the worry). Diesel / petrol is cheaper here than at home but shop around prices vary. The Cretans drive like lunatics and watch out for the little motorbikes – whole families (without helmets) sit on them and dodge in and out of the traffic. There are too many of the little churches by the road which grieving families erect as a memory to dead relatives killed in vehicle accidents – I wish they’d put helmets on it’s so sad. Road directions – they seem to have placed most useful signposts behind bushes or they have fallen over or they are in Greek. Navigating is a total nightmare and most places we visited were found by accident when looking for somewhere else. There is a good market in Heraklion which we only found after we’d given up and were following the airport signs back to the hotel. We found Knossos ok but we failed to find the archaeology museum which we really wanted to visit because the signs just stopped – we did find Starbucks that outing so it wasn’t all bad! The excellent guide (called Niki) who took us round the Knossos ruins (worth a visit) said thank you for visiting Crete we need visitors to help our economy. This surprised me – and I said as much – because we haven’t really been made to feel welcome at all. We’ve been nearly run off the road and constantly tailgated for doing the speed limit, conned out of money in shops, ignored by staff, argued with in various places and I’ve been bitten by mosquitos really badly (I don’t blame the Cretans for that – but the chemist was a really horrible woman who seriously over-charged me). We certainly won’t be coming back to Crete and spending our very hard earned money in a country whose people don’t seem to want us here. I hope you find this an honest assessment. It wasn’t all bad – I hope I have shown that. I do try to be fair. . It is sad really when it’s our one week a year away and we save so hard for it and look forward to it for so long.

We had a lovely holiday in the hotel with my mom. The staff was amazing and friendly. We have never experienced so helpful and friendly people on our holidays before. The room was also very nice and clean with a small terrace looking at the garden, It all felt like a big family taking care of one other, The main restaurant offers many kinds of dishes. Despite this fact we missed more local Cretan meals a little bit, but our overall experience was fantastic. The hotel also offers a special a la carte restaurant, in which we experienced some truly outstanding moments with professional service and very kind waiters, The swimming pool and the beach were both fantastic. We enjoyed the animation programs, especially the Greek night and the aquagym lessons. A big plus is the location of the hotel, as it is very close to the capital of Crete and many beautiful historical places to visit. We had a truly enjoyable time and are looking forward to the next summer to visit this beautiful place with these amazing people again! Thank you Zorbas Village!

Please see our pics of garden room 626. We had this greeting every morning. Hotel told still not cleaned Spent most morning's killing Ants Asked for a move refused told cleaner would sort it. Still nothing done T Cook rep useless as well. Evening entertainment non existent although advertised. Place just not clean all smiles but no help. Stay well away from Garden Rooms unless you want this. Asked for Manager told he was busy. Look forward to your comments as pictures don't lie. Crete is nice but hotel needs a good clean. Waste of money so called Sun Connect more like Faulty Towers 2 week's of he'll in this room. Have made a report to Holiday Ombudsman about this as T.Cook no help both here or in resort.

Staff always approachable and friendly, lovely surroundings well-kept lawns and flowers, Nice and clean all round. Internet is free and is excellent all over hotel. Bad points, Rooms small and tired, restaurant food is repetitive and of average quality. Only the pool bar is open during the day and it's a long trek to it if you wish to chill out in the hotel lobby or on the balcony. Entertainment isn't too bad when they bring in a professional band or musician. The in-house entertainers are not that good. Musical night is awful and is held in the amphitheatre or as I call it the empty theatre. I wouldn't come back .
