In october 2014, me, my mother & father and my brother & his girlfriend and their children went to Crete, to stay in this hotel. I don't really know what else to say than we all really, really loved it and enjoyed our stay. I HAVE to go back here again! It's quite a large hotel-area, but we had a... 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

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

Tried the happy baby apartment. Great view from the apartment. Very nice rooms and very clean. The small town is a bit dull but cosy. Very quiet in april-may. The food in the hotel is not that interesting. Best food from the restaurants in the town.

If ever in Crete, this is the place to stay! Renovated in 2011, the hotel has all the facilities you want. We had a lovely room facing both the pools and the Libyan Sea, a portion of the Mediterranean. There was a spacious balcony, where we could enjoy both sunshine and shadow, and in the lovely, southern nights it was... More

Makrigialos in Crete is a beautiful resort serving excellent buffet food with an evening a la cart menu. The friendly and helpful personnel made you feel very welcome in this beautiful resort. The Mediterranean clear blue sea is perfect for bathing and cooling down on those very hot days. I recommend Obelix bar across the road if you want an... More

This was our fifth visit and ninth week at this excellent resort. We prefer to cook most of our food ourselves. The small village has an excellent butcher (ask for lamb leg or chops), a local center for many sorts of vegetables/fruit (a.o. eggplants, zucchini, melon, grapes) and wine shops with the best red, white and sparkling wines Crete and...
