Upon arrival at Aquis Silva Beach, my first impression was not good. We were dropped off in the evening on the main street of a high tourist area across from a bar (open all night) and many ‘tourist trap’ shops. This was the first time I did not feel safe in all of the places we have been. As we... More

The hotel has direct access from the main shopping street in Hersonissos and from the path along the sea front. Saying this there was no traffic noise. The rooms are are on the small side but are kept very clean. The bathroom is tiny no bath just a shower. The beds are very comfortable, WIFI in the room had a... More

I would recommend this Hotel to anyone going to Hersonissos. The village setting is lovely and the rooms are spotless. We were AI and had no problems with our meals when we dined at the Hotel. We visited Koutoulafari village to dine in the Alchemist and Oniro as recommended by other reviewers and we were not disappointed. I would recommend... More

The Silva Beach is in an excellent location for the amenities in Hersonissos. The hotel itself has been built as a Cretan village and is well maintained. The rooms are cleaned every day and are maintained to a very high standard. Fresh towels are supplied on demand and beach towels are also provided. We were all inclusive and I can... More

We travelled as a couple and stayed for 10 days at the start of October. The hotel is in a lovely setting. The staff working there were always helpful and friendly. The room was modern and nicely decorated , we booked a garden room in the main complex. The entrance to our room backed on to the main road so... More

Just back from a very relaxing week here. It's on the Main Street but is like a little Greek village when you go through reception. Very quiet at this time of year so not much entertainment but food was great as were staff. The rooms are lovely, modern bathrooms and have everything you need. The only negative for some people...

Came here on our honeymoon and couldn't be happier with our experience. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a lovely and cheerful receptionist and from then on all the staff were nothing but obliging and friendly. We had a double bed 'garden view' room, which doesn't really show the view of a garden but as the hotel... More

We have been returning to the Silver Beach, again and again, for one reason only, we love it. It is so different to other hotels that it is hard to compare it like for like. It resembles a little Cretian villiage, with all the rooms gently meandering through the cactus and flowers down the slope to the sea. On the... More

We found we had no trouble changing our room and the Wi-Fi was very good. The Food was very tasty but could have been warmer, perhaps they could invest in a couple of microwaves. However. Although the staff were polite they were not friendly. Pool Towels are only changed once a week. NO DRESS CODE WHAT SO EVER. Too many... More
