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

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

We stayed for a week in Hellenic Palace. This hotel is really convenient for those people who want to spend the vacation in a quiet and nice area. Sissi the fishing village is in the near (walk 15 min). A bigger city Malia is 15min far by car. Food is delicious all day long (all incl.) The hotel has a... More
