Stayed here 14-21st July, myself and two teenage grandchildren, had requested a room nearer the main facilities as had read reports of all the steps and no lifts. I have limited mobility, the request was listened to, room 1411, although I still had two flights of steps to reach the lower pool but it could have been much worse. Ground... More

Aldermar Knossos Royal, The hotel entrance is where this hotel begins to shine. Very well presented, clean, bright, & a chill out area. A large reception with more than enough staff to settle you in. There is also 2 desks set up to help those staying at the hotel with inquiries. Hotel rooms are very well presented again very clean,... More

Just returned home from 10 days at this hotel! I agree with some of the comments.... The sun beds around the pools were taken even at 5am!!! But NEVER seen animation team knock people up to do this! The food was plentiful although some guests unsure nationality would pile their plates high like it was the last supper and no... More

Having just returned from a week's all inclusive stay we have very mixed feelings about this holiday! The hotel itself is pretty amazing and on arrival the staff in reception were lovely and very helpful! We arrived after food but had a lovely plate of fruit and sandwiches brought to the room. Bags were taken to the room for us... More

Spent a week at this resort, with husband and two children aged 3 and 6. We only opted for half board as we figured there were plenty to do in the area and we were right. The resort looked fabulous, gorgeous palm trees everywhere, a good sized pool and some smaller ones (some for private use) playground for the kids,... More

This was our 4th visit to this fabulous hotel! The reception staff greeted us warmly and remembered us from last year! We had a lovely seafront room overlooking a small private pool used only by a few rooms in our block. Although the rooms are starting to look a bit worn everything was comfortable and very clean. All the staff... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this establishment. The hotel has every essential you need for a relaxed holiday in the sunshine. On arrival you are chauffeured to to your accommodation with your luggage by a porter, a nice touch. The staff are without exception excellent, the standards high and there is a wide choice of amenities. The accommodation is... More

Just back from a week all inclusive at the Royal Knossos and overall I rate the hotel very highly. Our room was large and we had a main bedroom with king size bed and living room with two singles for kids.
