We spent two weeks with our friends at the Knossos Royal in the first two weeks of September 2014. We are experienced with Greek holidays having stayed in the past at Rhodes, Kos, and Greek Cyprus. This was our first visit to Crete, and we loved it!, The hotel staff made the holiday for us with their help and assistance,... More

We arrived in our room having booked VIP Bungalow Sea Front. So being on the 1st floor above another room you soon realise that Bungalow in England and Crete are very different dwellings. Very disappointed with room, teeny balcony, shower above taps not head height and a hoover type hairdryer (ladies you will know what I mean!) I took photos... More

Despite terrible weather in September the service was brilliant especially Rose and Paula who made our stay so special. I was there as part of a girls holiday and there is nothing that could have been faulted with the service and the cleanliness of the hotel.

Very nice hotel 4 star but not 5 star. What let in down for us was the food, I agree with other reviewers that there is lots of food but not necessarily good or varied food. You wouldn't starve as there is always something but not the quality of other 5 star hotels we have stayed in. The speciality restaurants... More

Great hotel, with many outdoor activities, good sea-view and beach, excellent facilities, fresh and tasty food, and a wonderful staff that made our asty the most enjoyable! A good place to relax and/or do some sport by the beach. At the dining room look for Maria, the most efficient and kind waitress in Crete (-:

Just returned from our first stay at this hotel. Our first impressions were that the hotel was around 3 stars in terms of the facilities it offers. The restaurant is a bit crowded and the food is nothing special. We stayed in a VIP bungalow on the beach which was wonderfully quiet and shared a pool with very few other... More
