Just returned from one-week-holiday in Crete, we stayed at Aldemar Knossos Royal with our 2-year-old daughter. Location: we rather recommend this hotel for those who do not look for stunning night life, or have their own rental car (like we did) - as other than some further all inclusive hotels, there are not so many restaurants or shops in the...

Like many of the couples' reviews before, we would say this resort is perfect for a family vacation but they are not catered for a young couples' needs. Lets start with the positives, the beach bar and Maria were fantastic, she really made us feel so welcome! The resort was clean, the pools were good fun and the animation team... More

We had an excellent two weeks at this very well run hotel which is only half an hour from Hiraklion airport and situated just outside Hersonissos. The accommodation is excellent, spacious and clean. We had an executive room which to be fair wasn't a great deal bigger than a standard room but did have tea and coffee making facilities and... More

Wow !! just does not come close to summing up this fantastic hotel. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left we were treated superbly. The hotel, the facilities and the staff were excellent. This made our 25th wedding anniversary stay in July 2014 the best we possibly could have expected. The rooms were very comfortable and provided... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week at this hotel. We travelled, for the first time, with Saga. We expected a sophisticated hotel - mainly for couples and older people. We found a huge complex geared almost completely to young people and families. This was SO not what we wanted and expected from Saga! Why on earth... More

This hotel is great for families or for old couples like us. The only problems are the steps and slopes, but the use of buggies can offset this if you really cannot manage these. We were fine at our ages in the late 70's. The hotel is very clean and rooms were kept spotless and linen changed every 3 days,... More

Nice food and well-organised events in the pool and the surroundings. I was lucky and got an upgrade for my room with private pool but I preferred the central pool and the beach. The staff was friendly and all spaces were well serviced.
