Love this hotel as it has everything we look for in a holiday, and in particular the outstanding staff go out of their way to make your holiday enjoyable. In particular Paula in the bar, Theo in the restaurant and Rula and George in the beach bar gave exceptional service. However the receptionists were also helpful and arranged for us... More

We stayed at the Aldemar Knossos Royal in September 2014. It was our second time to Greece and I must confess that I was apprehensive as last year we had such an amazing time in Rhodes. I didn't think that we could be as lucky again... But we were !!! On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by friendly... 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 (-:
