We booked a family holiday thought we'd go for something with at least four stars. We arrived at 9.30 at night with a one year old to be told there was no room and we'd have to go to their sister hotel. The compensation being able to eat in the pay restaraunt where no under 4's are allowed!! We being... More

I had taken my girlfriend on a surprise holiday last year to this hotel, normal antics of a holiday of the flight being delayed. We arrived at approximately 5am in the morning after a long journey to the hotel. On arrival we were met by the reception staff who had informed us that our room had been given to someone... More

This hotel is placed on an amazing rock, right next to the sea side. Amazing views and chilling moments for all the family are in order! Really nice place for your holidays in Crete right next to Heraklion city.

Visited the CHC Sea Side Resort during summer 2014 - everything was fantastic. Hard-working staff that gave great service everyday, blue water, quiet pools and enough sunbeds and umbrellas for everyone. We took full advantage of the all you can drink alcohol!

The hotel is lovely, it is divided into blocks some with small private dipping pool and some have the use of a private infinity pool. Rooms are clean and ours was spacious, the view was beautiful and there's a small beach close by. It's quite hilly and a car would also be recommended to get about. Food was excellent and... More

From all the hotels we saw on our way to Sea Side and from it on, defiantly looks to me the best located hotel. It has two big swimming pools and a cute little private beach (there are also suites with a private pool for those who doesn't like to share) . The room was just perfect for our needs... More

Stayed here in July for 7 nights and overall it was perfect! Location is beautiful, with fab weather. Beach is only a small pebble one but we didn't mind too much. Staff were so friendly and helpful, although not all spoke fluent English. Rooms were clean and fresh on arrival, and were very spacious and were cleaned thoroughly every day... More

My girlfriend and I have just returned from a week at CHC SEA SIDE and this was a holiday to remember and one of the best holiday experiences we have ever had. We had sunshine with good, plentiful food, lots of choice and great service. A total 'chill out' experience, we never left the hotel other than a walk down... More
