The Sandy Beach Hotel has the most kind, friendly and helpful staff. Particularly Antigoni, who is a wonderful person with superb qualities. Her friendliness, competence and general helpfulness was second to none. If you require any information regarding your stay, do not hesitate to approach Antigoni as she is very obliging and her English is excellent. We found that any... More

Myself and my husband booked the hotel based on the location, and for a hotel located right on the beach, and with the all inclusive package it came up as by far the best value we found. We stopped in room 504 for a week towards the end of September, rooms are basic but a comfortable size for a couple... More

We could have managed with a limited choice of... More

A quiet and small resort outside of georgioupolis main town but only a short taxi there. Also only 20 mins by bus to rethymno-well worth... More
