One of the best holiday destinations that we have ever been to! We love Crete and we love the location of Pilot Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious meals. What stood out about the service was how even the most senior staff and the owner interacts with the guests and ensures that everyone is having a good holiday. Our thanks... More

Everything about our 10 day stay was great. Rooms, food, service - the pools in the centers of each grouping of cottages were very nice. Our daughter joined us unexpectedly and although the hotel was booked out, Sophia and the team did their best to make everything work out. We will surely be back.

Stayed there during the last week of September. Weather is so / so. If coming from Heraklion airport- note its 2 hours by bus (including in the fee for hotel) taxi would be around 130 euro each way, but would take about 1:45… Service was wonderful. Food – lots of options but not very tasty… (to each is own). Rooms... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks beginning of September with extended family and we all had a wonderful time. There was the initial hiccup - hotel was overbooked, grandparents had to stay somewhere else for one night, but they made up for it by "upgrading" us from half to full board. Most reviews are already pretty comprehensive and I agree... More

I spent a week in this hotel which is more familly orientated. What more can I add to to other reviews? It's worth visiting a couple of rooms before chosing the best in the beginning. The food isn't the best, I advise you to simply take breakfast at the hotel and eat real Greek food in the village of Georgioupolis... More

Most of the people reading reviews are more interested in finding flaws than perfection (which practically does not exist in hotels). On this one, there are 90% pros & 10% cons, and those 10% may be randomly subjective. I hope my review will help future travelers plan their vacation better and hotel's ownership in changing their approach where needed. LOCATION... More

Stayed here with daughter and family in sept 14. Booked especially because of the " kids friendly". It is indeed kids friendly, would not come here as a copple with no kids personnally. It is a 5 star hotel but for europeans who are used to travelling, not more than 4 stars. Plenty of choice in food but a got... More

We stayed at this hotel for 6 days in early September, my wife and myself, aiming to spend some relaxing days before getting back to work. The travel agency suggested this 5 star hotel but I think we were by far not the average customers, and therefore the hotel did not meet our expectations. Good things: - the long beach,... More

Pilot Beach is a huge resort, spanning both sides of the Crete national road. One smaller part on the beach, and a bigger main part on the inland side of the road. Both sides have restaurants, a bar, and breakfast. Beachside has one exellent poolarea, and a huge (really) lot of exellent sandbeach, with loads and loads of sunbeds. Always... More

We enjoyed a 2 week holiday in August 2014 with our teenage son. We booked what we thought was a superior bungalow, 'swim up room'. However, on arrival we were allocated a garden view room which we noted before we left reception, this was then reallocated. When we arrived the room was on the 1st floor, overlooking the pool, the... More
