We are an older couple looking for a nice hotel in a nice location. Asterion hotel is a nice hotel but more like a 3 star and the location is very isolatated. If you decide to stay here a car is essential. The photos are quite flattering as the beach is very scruffy but a lifeguard is on duty. The... More

We read all the reviews about this hotel and had high expectations. The photos on the web-site look amazing! We arrived by car and could not find the hotel entrance. We had to walk through a corridor of rooms and finally found reception. This was not a good start. No directions to reception - just trial and error. The location... More

We stayed at the family suite for one week, which was very spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. The hotel was very quite and relaxed and the location was great to explore western Crete!

There is a team of amazing people that work at this property. At reception Yiannis Livadiotakis and Michalis were very professional, helpful and attentive with all of our inquiries and the needs of other quests. In the Coralia dining room we had amazing service every morning during breakfast from Charis and the dining room manager George Vavoufakis. Their evening menu... More

Wanted to keep the Asterion a secret, but decided to share this little gem with all those who are looking for a modern, clean, comfortable, friendly staff, on the beach hotel being tucked away from the hustle & bustle. We stayed 2 nights, Sptember 2014, wished we stayed longer. The manager and staff, especially the lady in reception, were very... More

Spacious tasteful & clean room with nice bathroom and large balcony. Comfortable loungers, nice pool. Nice pool bar menu and good service.... ... however.... Only the main (buffet) restaurant was open for the duration of our stay which was annoying given that it was advertised as having 3 restaurants on it's website. Seems it was not finished or was just... More

If you are after a luxury and relaxing holiday, this is the place you should be looking at. Treat yourself and book the Panoramic Suite. The view from the roof-top private swimming pool/terrace is just stunning.
