This is a wonderful hotel, we were traelling as a couple and there were a lot of families, normally i get bothered by too many kids but here you have plenty of privacy. Everything is included but beware-the drinks are very very strong and drinking free cocktails by the beach all day can tempt you not to even leave the... More

Excellent choice for family vacations. The food was great, both in terms of quality and variety. You should also try the 'a-la-carte restaurant for its service and recipes.The staff was very friendly and highly professional. The entertainment team was fantastic.

less than a km away as the crows fly from the third minoan palatial site of Malia, this Grecotel is situated in a natural bay protected by an islet, and it is surrounded by nature. Perfect for a family with kids or a relaxing holiday, it's still a drive of few minutes away from historical and natural wonders. One of... More

We were moved here after the hotel we booked in Sissi was overbooked. This hotel is approx 3km from Sissi, right on a beautiful sandy beach but otherwise a little isolated. We like a walk after dinner but there is nowhere to walk around here. First impressions were great, it's an old hotel but it has been refurbished to a... More

This was our first trip to Greece, and we chose Crete by friends advice. One week of relax and good food seemed enough for us. Location: 40 km from airport, takes 50 minutes to get there, though depending on the number of other hotels' tourists the bus takes. On our departure day it took us almost 2 (!) hours to... More
