I have just returned from a fabulous week at the Creta Beach with my partner. The quality of the service and friendliness of the staff was evident straight away. We arrived around 10:30 pm not expecting any supper to find that this had been prepared for us. We were taken to our bungalow which was in the gardens, it was... More

Nice and clean hotel, but unfortunately the food is not so good. Breakfast is not too bad. Lunch and dinner are not good. Lacks consistency and seasoning. Often the same food. Many elderly French groups. The French guests take in the beach chairs with their towels. Also they reserve the chairs on the small terrace of the bar in the... More

Pro: Very helpful staff. Good location near Heraklion airport. Nice garden. Free WiFi. Very child friendly policy of the staff. Contra: Food a bit boring after a couple fo days. Relatively small beach. Poor WiFi reception near the sea. Note: Maybe more suitable for the elderly who made up the majority of the guests during May.

This was the least satisfactory of the 6 hotels we stayed at during our recent trip to Greece. French package tours stop here--which is great if you like loud French disco music until midnight. Otherwise, ask for a room as far from the pool/restaurant as possible. The water in the rooms is non-potable and the management does not provide bottled... More

Sadly we picked the week that saw Crete have its worst weather in years... However the staff and the general ambience were hard to beat. My only criticisms would be , to be aware that this a French destination. ALL entertainment is in French as are activities... The standard rooms really are standard! Not a picture or anything homely, however... More

nice place, literally on the beach. We visited in October on the last day before it closed down for the winter, it was fine. Comfy beds, clean rooms, pleasant staff. Very good breakfast selection, reasonable prices.

Very nice hotel. I stood there in July '13. Location is very good - directly on the beach (first line). Road to Heraklion is close to hotel's gates. 15-20 minutes by bus to Heraklion. District name is Amoudara, it's full of shops, cafes, taverns. Not boring absolutely. Own beach, very comfortable. Enough beach-beds and umbrellas including those which are around... More

My husband and I researched a ton of hotels and finally chose Creta Beach. We decided to go with the half board so we could eat at the hotel if we wanted, but still go out and enjoy other restaurants and taverns. It was a little confusing with the staff as hardly any of them knew the prices for anything!!... More
