From the moment I stepped into the reception for check-in with my family I knew I had made a good choice. We were welcomed with a drink and the whole process was done very quickly at ease. The safety deposit boxes in the room are free of charge and so is the wifi provision. You are issued with an all... More

We had booked for 4 nights in this hotel. When we arrived, the receptionnist told us that our room was in the hotel nearby : the creta star (4 stars hotel), which is a huge ugly hotel without charm. After an hour of complain with the receptionnists, they finally gave us a room at the creta royal : the worst... More

We have just returned from a week at this lovely hotel (03/05/14 - 10/05/14). All of the other reviews do not do this wonderful hotel justice. Try it for yourself - you will not be disappointed !! However if you book a vacation here independently and don't plan to hire a car, the taxi from Heraklion Airport will cost 100... More

Have nothing to complain about. Most relaxing vacation my family has ever had. service and cleanliness was top. Breakfast for a King. By the sea. Fun for the kids and relaxing for us. Best combination. Apart from the breakfast you can find way better food in the taverns near the hotel.

First of all: this hotel is actually situated at 12 km from Rethymno (Skaleta), and not IN Rethymno as many websites suggest. If you want to explore Western Crete you should rent a car anyway. In about 1 hour you can drive to or from the airport of Heraklion. The hotel is really splendid, and the room was very spacious... More

We stayed for a week at the Creta Royal. Nice hotel, not particularly attractive externally but bedrooms are pleasant, very clean, well equipped. Public areas are spotless. Food standard and variety is excellent, particularly for an all-inclusive resort. Staff are friendly and attentive. They try very hard to mix things up with different themed nights for food so it's not... More
