Enormous comfy bed, luxurious bathroom facilities, and very large choice of food for breakfast. The only criticism i have is the strange looking device for making drinks in the rooms. A kettle would be better for those of us who like a proper english cup of tea.

Not at all bad, but not 5*. Could only get news channels in English on TV. However, nice pools, although a bit small - could cool down at end of day. Excellent staff, good breakfast. Really good location. Overall - would recommend.

It was more or less random chance that brought us to the Aquila Atlantis, but it was a great experience. It was 39 degrees Centigrade in the shade, and my kids really appreciated the pool. The breakfast buffet was very nice, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the location is close to the museum and pedestrian shopping zone. The... More

We started our Crete holiday with 3 nights in Heraklion. Very happy with the Aquila which seems incredibly well-run. The place is pretty cool, style-wise and absolutely spotless. The room was spacious but was made up as a twin bed. When we said that it was fine for the first night but could they do it as a double the... More

great hotel and value for price. Rooms quiet and cleaned to a very good standard; Staff very friendly and professional. Good location and transport links to visit city and nearby areas. Enjoyed breakfast buffet with local food and international cuisine. Swimming pool a little bit small and rooftop area could do with nicer setting. Recommended hotel

My friend and I stayed here for four nights. It is very modern and clean with stylish apppointments in our room. We enjoyed the excellent shower and comfortable beds. The sink is lovely, but there are no towel bars and nowhere to put a wash cloth! The coffee maker was appreciated, but it is on a shelf too high for... More
