The hotel is decent, food is great and Good staff. The beach is next to the hotel, with great sand and clear water. Wi-fi only in the reception. Drink are good, at the mini pool bar. Considering the money u pay for the hotel I'd say it's a great hotel.

Good Greek food and pretty clean. The best prices to rent car at smart car near the hotel. Nice and carefully staff. Bus ticket to Heraklion is 4.80 euro. If you need to buy something else then water use the stores from center. You should visit Heraklion, Agios Nikolaos, Matala and Vai.

Hearty breakfasts and dinners, and we really liked it. The staff was very nice and friendly. The gardens swimming pools. During the day and evening programs for adults and children... More

I have just returned from a fabulous 10 day holiday at this hotel. I was in a party of 6 with ages between 20 and 65. So, where do I start? I could tell you how great the food was (plenty of different dishes at each meal) or how clean the rooms are (west facing sea/side view room) or even... More

We had a very restful holiday at the Astir Beach. We were there for a week at the beginning of June and the hotel was fairly quiet compared with our previous visit when they were much busier in September 14. As returning guests we were given a gift of fruit and water which was a nice touch. We also were... More

My friend and me stayed here mid May 2015 and we can both honestly say it was great. We were the only British in the hotel at the time as it caters mainly for Germans including the cuisine but it was very good food and loads of choice. Staff were lovely especially the girls at meal times and the bar... More

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

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
