Enjoyed two weeks here in August 2014 with my family. The hotel was very clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. We even asked if we could move rooms to which they agreed on a change over day. There were plenty of activities and the pools were exceptionally clean. The beach is down a steep slope so people with... More

Nice hotel with for families with children. It is geared towards families with small children in my view, and it is very Scandinavian. In a sense, if you do not leave the hotel, it was just like being in a Scandianvian country. Food was good, made for Scandinvians and children, I would have liked to see it more "Greek". It... More

We have been to some different Sunwing hotels and first of all I would NOT characterize this as the traditional Sunwing hotel with Lollo & Bernie and everything this includes. The atmosphere and the hotel are very different from traditional Sunwing. If you disregard the 2,5 hours of bus drive from the airport this is simply a gem, which is... More

Stayed at Ocean Beach Club in a Club Suite with two bedrooms, great bathroom and a large balcony with ocean view. It was very good. Beds were comfortable. No complaints. The restaurant is decent. Food is pretty good for a inclusive hotel. Pool area is quite calm even though most guests are families with children. The water slides are over... More

Sunwing usual hotel. Good location with two beautiful beaches just by the hotels buildings. Sand and kidsafe :-) A long 2 hours ride from the Heraklion airport by buss with one stop, survivable. The village was very quiet in May, no much of annoying tourist buzz. Great service at the beach cafe and good snacks - we had lunch there... More

Stayed one week in july with family (2 adults, 2 children). Arrived in the middle of night after a 2,5 hours transfer from airport. Greeted effectively and kindly. They even had personnel posted in the resort to help people find their rooms. We stayed in Aphrodite building in a very nice apartment with balcony and seaview. 4 pools with different... More

This is the 4th Sunwing I visit and must say it's the best! If you ignore the 2,5 transfer the location is stunning! A beautiful beach with smashing views that I just loved! Only con is that makrigialos is such a small village without much more to see or do. It is a big resort separated in two areas, the... More
