Several of us attending a conference nearby at the Cretaquarium stayed here for several nights. What struck me first was the view. It was pretty cool to step outside of my room, either through my front door, or from the corner of my deck, and see the Mediterranean Sea. The deck also faced inward toward the rest of the layout,...

We first landed in Heraklion and because it was late, decided to stay at Golden Bay Hotel. It was close. The only problem was finding it. After 3 phone calls and very good help from the hotel, we finally arrived. Don't be discouraged as you drive through the street to get to it. They are not the best but people... More

The staff here cannot do enough for you. I have stayed here three times and have always enjoyed my stay. My mother is diabled and Rania and her staff always go out of their way to help us. The WiFi isn't great, but I think this is due to the local infrastructure and not down to the hotel. The place... More

I was happy to finish my week at Golden Bay on Friday as I have to say that the service in the Taverna restaurant was amongst the worst I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. I travelled as a solo guest and although I used the Hotel restaurant every day I found myself constantly having to ask for service.... More

This has been upgraded to a really good family hotel apartments place with charming and friendly staff who really go out of their way to be pleasant and give good service. There is constant and late hours bar service with kitchen service food on demand. The only downside - unless you want a quieter holiday - is the position in... More

One week in July 2014 at what was one of probably the best Aparthotels we have visited. Apartment was a clean well appointed 1 bedroom apartment. With the weather so good and the food in the hotel and the surrounding tavernas so good as well, the last thing that you would wish to do is cook in doors so the... More

This was our second visit to this wonderful small hotel with friendly staff where nothing is too much trouble. Rania and her team go out of their way to make your holiday enjoyable. We opt for half board at a cost of €15 a day and its well worth it as we love breakfast by the pool and our evening... More
