I've been to this hotel 3 times in the past years and every year i'm happier. Great food, great views, very clean water by the pier, they even gave me a fishing rod and i spent a couple of days fishing at the pier. The chef then actually cooked my catch for me, made my day! The staff has been... More

I had a wonderful time at the Peninsula Hotel. It was a great escape from everyday life. Nice location, clean room and very friendly staff. The all-inclusive deal was a good choice for me and my company. We didn't leave the hotel much as there were several activities available to keep us occupied. I also appreciated the overall ambiance of... More

My girlfriend and I were there in August last year and can't wait to go back this summer. The hotel is on an ideal location for sea and relaxation, yet close enough to Heraklion for the occasional night out. The food at the hotel is amazing and you get the chance to try a huge variety of mediterranean dishes. The... More

Hotel Peninsula is located on the rocks in one of the most beautiful parts of Crete - Agia Pelagia. It provides an amazing view to the sea and the area near-by. Some of the rooms are made in typical cretan style and it makes them very interesting. There is an animation every day and night so you can not be... More

I've been to the Peninsula Hotel a few times and thought it was time to write a review. Firstly, the views are spectacular, the location of the hotel makes you feel like you're on you're own little island. This sense of escapism is amazing. For lovers of the sea, it cannot get better than this! The waters are very clean,... More

However, on reaching the hotel we were told, that the bungalows were being repaired and we could have 2 separate rooms instead. The rooms were sea facing, but... More

The staff are rude and unfriendly. Room service is crap, they do not provide refills of toiletries (perhaps they should mention under exclusion - please bring your own toiletries). The TV is from the ancient times, a piece of Greek history!! Even tablets are bigger these days! The fridge comes empty. Tea bags are not changed perhaps since the beginning... More

The food at the restaurant were very delicious and it was all natural products.... More
