Taxi. Take it directly in the airport. Transfer from the hotel is 20 Euro more expensive. Ask the direct phone number of taxi company for all other trips you'll get to save 10 Euro every time (local taxi drivers named receptionists "mafia" because they have to pay 10 Euro only for the phone calls). I had my trip with 2... More

Perfect hotel for family with young kids; the kids animation is perfect, the staff super friendly. The hotel room was ok - we had a family room at the back of the hotel, too close to the logistical centre where all trucs drive in and out and where the hotel fans where very loud - but as you only sleep...

My wife and I were looking for a good quality hotel where we could relax for a few days. With the Creta Palace, we found it. Despite arriving at 23.30 we were offered dinner, in the restaurant, which we refused, and the service and customer care continued throughout the remainder of our stay. Despite all of the meals being buffet... More

Possibility of staying in this hotel didn't look very bright to me, as I only saw it as a family hotel with huge number of kids wandering around and no place for me to find something interesting. Though, as I have started experiencing the environment of the hotel, I have felt some relief due to the quality of service and... More

We’ve travelled in Greece in June-July 2014 and this was the best hotel we experienced. Good value (luxury) for the price (except for the beach bar, way too expensive compared to other similar places), the beach is beautiful and very well equipped, breakfast buffet excellent even if it is not changing too much from one day to the other, rooms...

The hotel is very confortable and has all the facilities you need to spend fantastic holidays. We stayed in a "Bungalow room" which was very spacious and cleaned twice a day. The decoration is nice even... More

We spent two weeks in Grecotel Creta Palace (2 adults and 2 kids) and everything was perfect. We started bad, as there was an error in communication between the travel agency in our country, the Greek travel operator and the hotel and thus, initially, we did not get the rooms which we booked. However, the hotel staff was more than... More
