We are just back from two weeks of peace and relaxation at this wonderful hotel. Excellent food, wonderful service, spotlessly clean room. We were "All inclusive" so we had everything at our disposal. Every member of staff went that bit further to make our holiday as comfortable as possible and we appreciated it . We strongly recommend this hotel to... More

This is a very well run hotel. Management is by walking about. The staff are brilliant - attentive, friendly, very helpful. The food is excellent. The cocktail list extensive. The lawns, hedges and flower beds are immaculate. One night we noticed the dining room staff taking extra trouble over laying a table and our waiter told us 'the big boss... More

The Creta Royal is lovely, certainly 5* by Greek standards, but would only manage 4* in the rest of continental Europe. Very clean, attentive staff and lovely grounds, Bars and restaurants are very good. Certainly on my list to return for an all-inclusive week in the peace and calm, but do venture to Rethymnon harbour-side...fantastic seafood ! (only 10Euro in... More

…to describe the excellent experience guests can have at this hotel. A hotel situated 12 klm from Rethimno not too distant from the town to allow easy access and frequent visits and far enough to allow you to relax and isolate. The gardens make you think that you are at an exotic place, meticulously looked after with the smell of... More

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
