The best thing about this hotel is the variety and taste of desserts they serve. Absolutely delicious. The food is overall good too. The hotel is family friendly, no problems with using a stroller inside and outside. It has a great view, friendly staff. The two disadvantages are the location (if you don't mind staying in the hotel area, fine.)... More

My husband and I spent a fabulous week here with friends from England. We were pleasantly surprised to find the resort exceeded our expectations. Lovely spacious room - and upgraded to a full seaview! Fabulous staff who were extremely helpful. Lovely location on a beautiful beach, and just a short bus trip to nearby Rethminon. The grounds were immaculate -... More

When we arrived we were given our rooms which were on the same floor but couldn't be any further away... More

This was our 2nd visit to this fantastic hotel. Our previous visit was September 2012 but we decided to go earlier in the year this time. Everything was every bit as good as the last time and better because on our previous visit the air conditioning was not working and as the temperatures were over 30 degrees you really need... More

The animation team worked hard to keep us active and entertained. Good kids' club and mini disco. The reception staff was friendly and helpful. The gardens were loveIy. I was a little apprehensive...

We travelled as a family party of seven with ages ranging from 15 to 70. We stayed at the Creta Star from 2nd to 16th August. We avidly read Tripadvisor reports before we book and up until we arrive , and the reports for this hotel are justifiably and almost exclusively good. The hotel grounds are impeccably maintained and the... More

The hotel was fairly big with great facilities for all. The entertainment team were terrific in getting adults and kids involved all day and night with constant activities such as water polo, beach volley and so on. There were two pools - one inside and one out - with saltwater. We were all inclusive and the food was great each... More
