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...

Nice staff, clean resort and beaches. Missed the Fino restaurant, but the plus side of that was we ate in several of the nearby local restaurants - great local fresh food, personal service and benefit to the locals, plus much lower prices than inside the resort -local Retsina for less than a bottle of beer. We had a room overlooking... More

I can only recommend this hotel. Everything is as its should be: lovely pool area, wonderful beach and interesting walks in the local gorges. The sandy beach has a gentle slope with clear water allowing you to see the fish swimming around. The staff are very helpful and handle all sorts of queries with a smile. The local restuarants in...

Friendly staff, clean pool area and a cozy beach. This is the third time we have visited this hotel - and it has surely changed over the years. It is a resort that perfectly suits families with small kids. But we thought it was really noisy at breakfast and dinner - but that is something you have to expect when... More

We've stayed at this resort four times and we will definately go back a fifth time. The resort have several different buildings in different shapes and sizes. We've stayed in Minos (The building that is Ocean Beach Club today), Apollon and Pallas Athina and they were all good. There were 2 new waterslides this year which added to the kids... More

Good and friendly service. Fantastic beach. Decent rooms (average bathroom and living room). We didn't go for the all inclusive deal - which we do not regret. We tried the all inclusive dinner once, and found it very noisy and hectic. Also, there were surprisingly few meals to choose from. The Tasca restaurant at the hotel has good pizzas. Drop... More

We had all inclusive 5 days and actually considered adding another 5 days since the quality of the food and service was very good, much better than regular Sunwing. Staff at the Sats gym were friendly and had a good programme. Room with direct access to own pool and 50m to the nice beach...definitely a glance will consider going back... More
