We stayed here for 2 nights while exploring Crete. I would say this is the least attractive part of the island so that probably colored our thinking. We had a little cottage that was very basic with old shabby furniture and a rather ancient bathroom - we were not in the least impressed by that. The beach is ok but... More

We stayed at the Coriva for almost two weeks, with our two kids two and five years old. The location is very good. Direct access to the the very good beach , a bit steep but no big waves like in other beaches. Free sunbeds, a mixed crowd. Families earlier in the day, younger people later on. The hotel is... More

The hotel itself is nice. The bungalows are situated in a beautiful garden. The rooms are clean and tidied up every day. However some of the rooms are very small; we occupied two rooms - one in the main building and one bungalow. Both rooms were really small with very limited space for clothes and personal things and no space... More

The two of us work pretty bonkers city jobs and we realised that we both had a chance for a week off with a weeks notice. The only aim was to chill out for a few days and we plumped for Coriva beach which in the end fitted us really well. We grabbed a rental from Heraklion and just drove... More

I went at the beginning of May after searching for hours for hotels to stay in on Crete. Within 5 minutes of finding Coriva we booked the room because the photos are amazing but they don't do it justice it's so much better when you get there! Everyone is exceptionally friendly and the taverna on the beach fed us very... More

Great location, isolated from routists and noise, fantastic staff, right on a beutiful super crystal clear black pebble beach. The restaurant they own had excellent food. Highly recommended, would easily stay again when in south crete.

Rooms are quite spacioius, cleaned every day, our room smelled of cigarettes a little bit. Rooms in the main building on the opposite side are... More

Very beautiful, Cretan style, with air-conditioning, near a lovely clean and quite beach. Being there can be compared to staying with friends, who do their best to make you fill yourself at home. . There is also a tavern right in front of it at the beach, with home-made food and very nice personel. The best place for quiet rest... More

I spent the most amazing fortnight in early August at this lovely hotel and its amazing location on the beachfront. The staff of the hotel was very friendly and caring and they satisfied all my needs. Last but not least, the Greek tavern which serves traditional Cretan specialities and belongs to the hotel was excellent, both in service and quality... More

I went to that hotel based on the revews of Tripadvisor but it is the first time I feel missinformed. I also believe that some enthousiastic reviews are suspicious! The hotel is in a good location, but the main building of the hotel is old without any serious renovations just "puches". For example, the WC door was broken and couldn't... More
