Myself, my wife and 9 month old daughter spent a week here, loved every minute. The staff were very friendly and helpful, most of the other guests were German, but all very friendly! Can't wait to go back, would highly recommend to anyone, even in October I got very sunburnt. Everything is a bus ride away

We stayed for a week in October. Lovely hotel on the beach, not keen on 5 Euro for a sunbed round the pool, although it came with a litre of water. We enjoyed breakfast but were disappointed with the evening meal, went out to eat on a couple of occasions. The staff in all areas were very friendly and helpful... More

The hotel was, as we expected, right on the beach and set well back from the road. We paid extra for a sea view and were very happy with it. The room was comfortable and clean, if a little dated, and the bathroom could have done with some modernisation (the shower was cramped with a clingy curtain). Our weather was... More

Golden Beach Hotel was relaxing, friendly and a great place to stay. Staff were excellent - at reception, in the restaurant and house staff couldn’t have been nicer, they were all so helpful and kind. A very Greek atmosphere as well as a European, Mediterean feel. Special touches, a welcoming open plan, spacious lounge and foyer. Great bar and restaurant.... More

As a first visit to Crete we weren't overall disappointed with this hotel. It is situated right on the beach and has more than adequate facilities for a leisurely holiday. Our room, although basic, was fine and spotlessly clean as, indeed, was the entire hotel. The staff are really friendly and helpful; perhaps the best we have ever encountered. It... More

Just returned from a week here and we loved it. The hotel is family run with friendly staff especially George the bartender. Sit with him at bar on an evening for drinks and plenty of laughs. The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere with quirky unique decorations and is right on the beach with gorgeous sea views. Yes the food... More

I can echo Mel's post, as we both stayed at the hotel at the same time... Yes, the staff were friendly and helped out my friend very successfully, (who has Sleep Apenea) with a socket extension, in order to use a breathing machine each night. Our room was tucked away in a corner, overlooking 2 other peoples balcony's. We found... More
