When we arrived, our 'bungalow' room with a sea view was small and looked nothing like what was on the website. We immediately went back to the lobby and informed them of our concerns and they said 'come back tomorrow'. It took two days for them to move us, the room they moved us to still looked different to the... More

My wife and I and four others in our group stayed at the Peninsula for seven nights on half board. A beautiful hotel set on several levels in a picturesque bay, with the best sea view we've ever had from a very pleasant (if rather hard-bedded) room. The many levels meant that we had to negotiate over 70 steps whenever... More

You may think you've got the wrong directions, but the Peninsula Resort and Spa is located at the end of a winding road that follows the northern coast of Crete, Greece. Offering all-inclusive plans, the food is acceptable, though a bit repetitive after the first few days. To one side of the hotel is a beach. Be warned, the rocks... More

Just back from 2 weeks at the Peninsular Hotel. Georgia, Maria and the other girls at reception catered for all our needs and we were always greeted with a smile. I travelled with my wife and two teenage children and paid the supplement for 2 bungalows with sea view. My wife and I stayed in room 608 which had a... More

Good that there is pool with sea water. food was delicious.... More

We loved the location, but it's not all inclusive - more like a half board w. lunch. I would not recommend it to a friend. Positives: -clean, w daily room service -beautiful beach -friendly staff -food on arrival (11 PM) -courtesy room (as no option for late check out) -close to local restaurants and bars-15 minutes on the path down...

Great and helpful staff, we bought a local sim card (2G data) at the reception for 15 euro and the receptionist really helped us activate the card. The location is great only 20 minutes from Herkalion airport and very easy to get to the hotel. The hotel has 2 lovely beaches, but need to pay for beds and umbrella (!!)... More

I stayed at the Peninsula Hotel in Agia Pelagia, Crete for four consecutive days. The hotel is situated in a beautiful place, I may say, "the most beautiful place" I saw in this trip. I received a spacious suite called a Bungalow Room with a fantastic sea view from the main and adjacent rooms as well as from the balcony.... More
