I stayed here at the end of May 2014. I loved it. The best bits - the location, the cleanliness and the food. You are right on the beach here. What's not to like. There a small, quiet road to cross and you are on the beach. I LOVED the food. I'm not a meat eater and this posed no... More

Astir beach hotel is dealing bookings on both concepts , half board basis as all inclusive basis according to the clients wish. That means , that there are al a carte departments as all inclusive ones to serve both needs , operating in different time tables and conditions . Anyway , the all inclusive concept , it is a full...

It's been almost 4 years since our trip in Crete, the Astir Beach Hotel so a good deal of details were lost. The hotel is close to Heraklion airport. It benefits from a Blue Flag beach, seslongurile the surcharge, a minus for Greece in general, compared with Turkey. The beach was big enough and find seslonguri at any time. The... More

It was our second trip to Crete, first time we've been in an apartment, and and now we've choosen this hotel. Maybe, this is the most simpatic hotel in Gouves. There are a few buildings, but we were in the central building, on the third floor. There wasn't any problem, the room was clean, and we had a balcony half-front... More

I'm quite happy with my stay in the "Astir Beach" hotel this summer. The hotel met all our expectations and seriously exceeded them on account of meals. My applauses to the cooks and to the restaurant staff: you are doing great. I will miss you, guys. The receptionists: despite they looked very busy, sometimes they were pretty accessible for a...

After our wedding we wanted a quick, cheap get away as we couldnt afford to do our dream holiday. Our first week at Astir beach wasn't great, not going to lie. The staff were extremely rude, this was the restaurant staff and one of the male receptionist, he doesn't know how to smile or say things nicely. The all inclusive... More

There are many good things about the place, such as the setting, the proximity to the beach, the sights, the pool etc... but the best thing by all means are the people there! In particular - the pool bar bartender (no idea how to spell his name, Jorgos, Giorgos... anyway, he's great!), and the animation team expertly led by Mario... More

Small, sparse room with two hard beds. Tiny shower. Beautiful view of the beach and a lovely terrace to enjoy it. The food was eh. The guests at the hotel were mostly Polish and I think the dining room catered to their tastes. I would return but would seriously rethink having my meals there again.

I and my family stayed here in June for a week. It was truly an amazing vacation despite some misunderstanding. The rooms - basic, but clean. Here is everything you need for holiday. When we go on vacation, we don't spend a lot of time in rooms. Maybe could get a room with a better view, but it didn't caused... More
