Best surprise was this is an all-inclusive resort and is right on the water. Room was excellent, meals were very good and plentiful, basic drinks were free (extra cost for cocktails). Two pools with excellent seating options. Good entertainment all day. Evening on the terrace with a drink was the best way to end the day. Shopping is inexpensive and... More

Amazing hotel. Walk through reception and you are in a hotel of low level Greek village type units. The hotel grounds were spotless and full of plants and flowers. 2 great pools Loungers all padded. The choice of cocktails and drinks was good and the beach bar was fantastic. Several bar areas, all with great friendly staff. The restaurant was... More

An all inclusive hotel with nicely finished room and balcony with view of swimming pool and ocean. Problem with the room was a very strong musty smell every time we entered room (disappeared or reduced significantly after some fresh air introduced to room and/or air conditioning turned on). Have to pay extra for use of Safe in the room. Nice... More

I stayed at the Silva beach a few years back (old review). The hotel is gorgeous and kept very clean. Food was fine, everything was hot and there was plenty of choice. The entertainment was excellent, it varied every night but was always a good laugh and they did their best to include guests both at night and during the... More

Had a great time at this hotel. Lovely and friendly staff, good food and clean rooms. Location was great as well: 10 min walk to the bar street, 5 min to Star Beach. Free drinks and cocktails until 23h, and activities every evening and during the day. Will certainly be coming back!

Choose this hotel!!!! It is one of the best I've ever been! Practically I can't find anything to criticize! So, for a 4**** hotel, this is the place! And yes, all-inclusive should be your choice too! Now, let's get closer … First of all, the staff is the key! Everybody in this hotel is really nice, friendly and helps whenever... More

beautiful setting you would not believe you were in town centre, like a small village once through reception and very quiet. Excellent food and service. Gardens and pool area kept clean. I would definately return again.

The Silva Beach Hotel was a great choice for our trip to Crete! Me and my friend stayed in a double room and had an all inclusive package. The food the hotel had was very good with a lot to choose from. We especially liked the fact that there were always local dishes available. Silva Beach also offered a lot... More

Great hotel with excellent facilities, food and service all round. Rooms were a little smaller than we have had in the past. Highly recommended if you are visiting Crete. On the negative side we booked because the hotel was promoted as an adults only resort, clearly this was not the case and there were a few guests with very young... More
