Amy Adejokun Section editor

Guests don't come to the Moklos by chance. Far from the sea resort villages where all the island's tourists converge in throngs, the hotel enjoys a secluded location by the sea. The accommodation units are decent enough and resemble a Cretan village. The hotel offers a full range of facilities, but we were disappointed by the beach and the charmless area that surrounds the pool.

    Location 3.0 /10

    The hotel enjoys a perfect location lost in the middle of the wilderness, far from the usual touristic destinations, some 27 mi from the town of Agios Nikolaos. The splendid road that leads there runs past impressive limestone quarries, but watch out for the trucks transporting raw materials. The hotel was named after the "Moklos" rock, which stands opposite the small village next to the establishment. The surrounding area is peaceful, with only a few shops and restaurants to cater for the numerous guests staying in the village's many guesthouses.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The establishment's 168 rooms are all in the same category: Standard. We preferred the older and more picturesque rooms to the ones in the newer buildings, which are bigger (27m²) but without character. The white buildings with their blue shutters are strewn across a nice garden with flowers and trees. The nicer rooms are smaller (15m²). The level of amenities is simple, the air conditioning is a luxury, and there are a couple of storage units. The bathrooms boast a functional design and include a bathtub or a shower. The hotel offers limited access to disabled guests, but it does nevertheless have 2 rooms entirely designed for people with special needs.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The hotel opened in 1984 and underwent its most recent refurbishment in 2007. The main building is picturesque and the area around the reception desk speaks of a simple, unpretentious establishment. However, the first good impression suffers a blow as one discovers the area around the main pool. True, you might be able to catch a glimpse of the sea in the distance, but there are no plants to brighten up the tile flooring and plastic furniture. As a result, the only shade available is provided by some sunshades and the setting is rather dull. However, the bar has a covered terrace next to the games room, which is pleasant enough, and stays open till midnight in high season. The nightclub next to the volley ball court is open until 2:00am. Behind the unimpressive beauty parlour there is a children's club with proper facilities, however it seems to have seen better days. There is a petanque field in the shade. The rooms in the more recent buildings boast a newer type of atmosphere, which is a pity as they pale in comparison with the more picturesque older buildings, with their white walls and blue shutters. Furthermore, some of the latter include a small terrace with a view of the sea.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The hotel's only restaurant is big enough to cater for nearly all the guests, with a capacity of 280 people. The food is served only as a buffet and the theme changes every evening. Tex-Mex, Greek, Italian, and barbecues. Meals are served inside or on the terrace with the beautiful view. Breakfast is served from 7:30am till 10:00am, lunch from 12:30pm till 2:30pm, and dinner from 7:30pm till 9:30pm.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The beach is rather dull, nestled between rough terrain and a large expanse of concrete. The sand is not that pleasant either. However, deckchairs and sunshades are available, and in some parts the sea is crystal clear.

        Superbe hotel, j'y suis allée avec mon petit garçon de 4 ans à l'époque, l'hotel est isolé du bruit et de la cohu des villes crétoises, entre mer et montagne, les chambres sont des mini maisons au style purement crétois. L'équipe est simplement formidable - mon fils a eu un coup de chaud et avec leur aide, un medecin (english speaking!!!) était là 2 heures plus tard. un endroit magnifique où on a envie de retourner le plus vite possible!!!

Not far from Aghios Nikolaos, guests can peacefully enjoy all the activities and amenities that are available here for adults and children alike. If you are looking for traditional architecture though, you should look elsewhere as this is a spacious, stylish and modern property. Efforts made to improve this place are evident, especially concerning the recently equipped beach.
