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

We were staying with friends. the hotel has 4 star but we give it 3 stars. The poolside bar was not included in the all in for drinks you had to enter the hall and you were helped by a very unfriendly Russian bartender. Unheard of for a four star hotel.

The hotel itself is not bad, but.......... reception people offered no information and wasn't nice in general (we asked for directions to the bus stop and they just said "go to the right"). Every thing is extra charge safety-deposit box (supposed to be included 10 euro), beach towels (??? 10 euro), WiFi (4 euro per hour, we found out at... More
