This is a small family run hotel, so people expecting a large all inclusive type hotel may be disappointed. The food was all very good and fresh, not as much selection as other places but with the size of hotel that would be impossible to provide and doesn't matter when the standard is good and varied most days. Drinks included... More

Let me start with the Fully Inclusive option, the drinks only include Raki Ouzo Beer and soft drinks so if you want a vodka or gin or cocktails you have to pay for them. We were told last year they offered 2 for one on the cocktails, if that had have been the case this year we would have had... More

The hotel was ok for its price and the food was good - BUT all this doesn't really matter when you are robed by the lady who cleans your room and when you report it to the front desk - they act like you are the perpetrator!!! Plus, they promised us a room with the sea view and we didn't... More

This was our first trip to Crete so we based our choice on feedback from Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! Cretan Garden is a great hotel run by a lovely family and staff who could not be more helpful! Although only there for a week, it felt much longer. The hotel is very well maintained and very clean. The food... More

Back from 10 days at the Cretan Gardens. The hotel itself was great for the most. The room was very clean and tidy, the bedroom section was upstairs. There were two balconies but unfortunatley these were in the shade for most of the day. The pool area was a good size and there were always plenty of sunbeds at all... More
