This was our first visit to Crete and we had the good fortune of staying at Athina Palace, Ligaria. This is an all inclusive hotel and is the only genuine all inclusive of all other similar hotels we have visited all over the world. Deliciou food is provided from 9.00 to 23.00. Full lunch and dinner, snacks and drinks, alcohol... More

My partner and I stayed for a week on an all inclusive basis. We had a lovely, relaxing time. The hotel itself is in a beautiful setting with some amazing views. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the pools, bars and restaurant areas were all nice. The food was okay, but could have been slightly better, though... More

What a lovely hotel. We stayed here for a week wish it was longer. Staff were great. We arrived on the 9th May at 9.35pm the receptionist said leave your bags in the lobby and go and get some food and check in when you have eaten. This was fantastic. The pools and the whole hotel were very clean. Although... More

Staff are very pleasant, well trained and cannot do more for you. We went slightly off season so the resort was not too busy. The inclusive meals had a decent variety and were quite tasty. Our room was clean, well equipped and comfortable to come back to after a day at the beach. The Beach itself is mostly for the... More

Definitely will be returning to this fantastic hotel. Built on a hillside the views are incredible. There are a lot of steps, but it is good exercise and helps to off set the effect of the really good food and drink. A LA carte restaurant well worth a visit. Very friendly and helpful staff in all departments of the hotel.... More

We've been to several parts of Greece previously, but not Crete, so decided an all inclusive hotel on the island would be ideal. It is only all inclusive, so you don't have to wear one of those annoying wristbands. You can pay for extras if you wish. Firstly, the views of the sea and the mountains are incredible! The hotel...

Just got back from an amazing week in Crete. The staff at Athina palace, from guest relations, the porters, waitresses and the charming & friendly animation team were extremely helpful and helped me & my mother discover true Cretan hospitality. The food had something for everyone & was simply to die for, spoilt for choice at all three meals, the... More
