We have just returned from our first visit to Crete and had a superb holiday. The hotel and all of its staff were so friendly that they made our visit very special. So welcoming and polite you could not have asked for anything more. Add to this a lovely location and you have all the ingredients for a wonderful holiday.

We had our wedding at St Nicholas Bay Resort on June 12, 2015. We had the most amazing wedding and it was more than we ever expected, which was down to Yiannis, Maria and the team at the hotel. After visiting Agios Nikolaos in September 2014, we knew we wanted to get married at St Nicholas Bay. A few emails... More

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary here last week and it was worth waiting 30 years for! The setting as you can see from photographs is superb, and the views across the bay, the cascading leafy trees, the vivid red and pink flowering shrubs, the buzz of the cicadas and the beautiful shades of blue that totally...

We have just returned from a very pleasant 11 night stay. The hotel was ideal for us where our five year old daughter made friends with the other children and played very happily in the pool all day. I would have thought that the hotel would be a bit quiet for teenagers or young couples although the town is only... More

I stayed at this wonderful hotel 12th July for one week. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and check-in was swift. We were shown to our room and introduced to the facilities. Our suite (532) was very spacious and had a lovely, large private balcony with great sea views. We were staying on a half board basis and tried the... More

We booked this hotel last minute through British Airways, just two weeks prior to going and were pleasantly surprised at how good it is. It's about 40 mins drive from Heraklion airport (€80 for taxi there). The hotel is located just outside Agios Nikolaos town, carved into the side of the rocks of a small bay. The hotel gives a...
