      nice hotel ,though it is a bit outdated but nice staff and very comfortable ,nice location just off the highway ,so very good if you have your own car

      a bit expensive for the product offered

      We chose Aquila Beach for our honeymoon. The nice staff that received us offered us an upgrade and we got a Junior apartment with private swimming pool for a night, how cool is that? Including champagne and fruit basket. Perfect start.

      The door in our room didn't have a lock from the inside so it didn't feel that safe, even though nobody without a key could open it from the outside. But I would suggest perhaps a key chain or something, it makes it feel a little safer.

      Good value for money. Excellent breakfast.

      The hotel is quite big, but it did not really bother me much. :)

      we stayed here as my daughter was using the same group hotel in elounda. very difficult to find. extremely efficient reception staff. room rather small and bathroom quite poky. dining room good and breakfast outstanding. we used the a la carte restaurant twice and that was good. food great and efficient and courteous staff. lovely maitre d. beach facilities good. our room let the experience down. room 352 needs refurbishing.

    • Family with children
      5.8

      The food was excellent,the breakfast buffet as well as the dinner buffet. Big nice pool outside, and they had a inside pool so we could bath even when the weather was bad. The big playroom was excellente. They had free food and ice cream available all day. And fun things happend all day.

      The inside pool was not so good. The gym and spa was poor and not a five star. The gym opened at 10.30 and where closed at 13.00. and reopended at 15.30. That was not good consider that people might like to go to the gym before breakfast , as my self. Or in the middle of the day. The play room was suddenly closed down for the season, and there where allot of dissapointed kids, but after many complains they opened it again. So they should be more spesific in the internet sides when its season or not.

      Lovely hotel with excellent facilities in a good location.

      Very busy around the swimming pool and everyone was reserving sunbeds.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Friendly helpful staff almost without exception. Breakfasts are superb!

      Not enough information given on arrival about the facilities there were and how to obtain them when not automatic. The odd pricing of services/additional services depending on the system booked- e.g. All-in; B&B; Half Board. Everything paid for on room account - no cash. Can be good but can also be confusing or difficult to follow. Overheard another guest comlaining about this system.
