We have just booked our honeymoon (a bungalow with sea view, AI) to this hotel as we had to choose from several islands and hotels in Malta and Greece, but we decided on Crete. We hope it will be a dream vacation as we have been dreaming of a romantic destination with real historic background (and Greece has it all).... More

The food was exquisite with traditional greek, oriental or european to choose from...the staff all around the sight were so friendly and happy and would go out of their way to help you. The activities there are wonderful for something for people of all ages, the rooms were furnished to a very high standard and the maids came regularly.

We stayed at this hotel for one week at the beginning of Sept. It is a large ‘village’ style complex of 2 story apartments around beautiful, well cared for gardens. It is located close to the sea and a 20 minute walk from Heronissos town; however, it can be quite a trek back up the hill so perhaps consider a... More

This was our second visit this year and our 5th year of visiting the Knossos Royal Hotel. My sister and brother-in-law came with us for the first time and could see why we go there regularly as they really enjoyed their time with us and didn't want to go home.
