Best hotel I've stayed at in Greece. Wide selection of food for all meals (buffet). Nice surroundings and also many locations of interest within a short driving distance. Also possible to walk to a couple of villages for a lunch with a marvellous view.

The front desk lady that welcomed us was friendly. The room was the last one for 1 night! The air condition was not working and the room was hot. We asked them to fix it, but they couldn't find a technician, so we asked them to place at least a ventilator and get a discount (something that they should propose... More

This was a small friendly hotel with nice staff. The breakfast was very good. The owner really encouraged me to stay there for dinner but I decided to go down the street instead. The room was fine and we could use the pool at the next door hotel if we wanted to but I preferred the ocean. Good experience overall.

Just returned from this lovely, medium sized hotel having had 12 nights B&B. We had previously stayed last year. Having arrived late we were given a warm welcome & they had very kindly put a couple of Greek salads, fruit & water in our room, which was a nice touch. We were given an apartment which was spacious with lounge,... More

We only stayed one night at this friendly hotel, but during that short time the hotel staff, waiters, reception staff and the cleaners were all so friendly, the room was a good size and very clean and the bathroom was recently renovated. Our room looked out over the beach - so we had a lovely view. The only small critcism... More

What stands out above all else with the Alianthos Beach Hotel is the warm and friendly staff. Hotel room was spotless, had a shower to die for and comfy beds. We ate dinner once at the adjoining restaurant which was only so-so but the hotel itself cannot be faulted! Would happily stay here again.

A great hotel run by a real caring family. Staff exceptional. Perfect location for beach, mountain walks and getting away from it all. Despite noisy air conditioner, room was good with modern shower (no bath). Downside if you book with Olympic, a three hour transfer from Heraklion and unavailability of sea-view rooms. If I have a moan it is that... More
