Fodor's Review

This extraordinary Relais & Châteaux property on the gulf of Mirabello blends luxury, sophistication, and a comfortably relaxed atmosphere accompanied by attentive service—more than half of the rooms, all bathed in cool marble and stunningly decorated in a soothing blend of traditional Cretan and contemporary furnishings, are in villas set in their own gardens, many with private pools. Verdant gardens line the shore above a sandy beach and terraced waterside lounging areas, a stone's throw from the large pool. Dining here, in the pleasant garden restaurant or on the terrace just above the beach, is especially pleasant and the food far surpasses standard resort fare.
