I started out rating this place 1 star and now it's 4 stars. It started when we arrived in Chania Airport really late and the buses weren't running but luckily I arranged a taxi with the hotel. We arrived in about 20 mins and we were excited since the structure was lovely! Our receptionist was gracious and arranged dinner baskets... More

We had great time at this hotel - good food, friendly personnel. The room has a mini kitchen but there were no utensils or tableware. Also the children's playground was old and very damaged so we couldn't use it at all.

My family of 5 stayed in 2 rooms over 5 days in early July. Having booked at a great rate of approx. AU$198 per room per night including breakfast and dinner, this resort presents exceptional value. The service was very personalised and we got to know all the waiters and servicepeople, from Eleni at reception to Valentina at the pool... More

Just returned from 2 great weeks at the Cretan Dream. Great points: Staff - ALL fantastic and work very hard with a smile to ensure you have a good holiday. Rooms - spacious with small kitchen area (full size fridge) and spotlessly clean. Make sure you book a pool/sea view! We were upgraded for four nights to a private pool... More

The hotel is located on a hill, so that you get full view og the sea behind the infinity pool. The food is very good as well, and the staff is so friendly! Went there with danish travel agency, and enjoyed every hour :)

The view from the hotel was incredible. The pool and grounds are very impressive and well kept. Rooms are comfortable and spacious. The food and service were also great. Go to the dinner buffet with live Greek dancing and music for a fun night.

Havent experienced a better service anywhere else. Can strongly reccommend this hotel. The location is close to a nice beach, the food is excellent but best of all is the super service we experienced from the staff in both the restaurant and the bar.

I liked Cretan Dream Royal. Great location, excellent service, great rooms, highly recommended. Regarding rooms we were at 323 + 325. The hotel is extending on that side and there was a construction site nearby, with some sporadic noise between 8 and 10 AM, but nothing sustantial. We are early birds, and for Crete you need a looooong day to... More

From Eleni at reception, irakli and Spiros at the restaurant, Valentina at the pool side bar to Manoli the manager the service and hospitality was impeccable and will have my family running back to stay at this hotel. The rooms were incredibly spacious and the housekeeping service was exceptional. Everyday we would return and they had made a new design... More
