My husband and I decided to go to Candia Park after read the good reviews here. The village is really well maintained and people is really nice. As I have read in the latest reviews, the hotel is definitely more suitable for families with children but, personally, we liked the vibe of the place with children having fun everywhere. The private beach is perfect as well. Families are very kind and polite.
Breakfast buffet was nice but as I've heard before in this reviews, we got a bit tired at the end of the week. We also payed for half board, which I do not recommend, if you want to enjoy a bit the life in town. We missed about two or three dinners because we wanted to try some of the local restaurants in Agios and Elounda. In addition to this, we found very uncomfortable to eat as there were a lot of flies around the buffet and tables. We did not see any insects machine to control it. I am sure is because the heat but I am from a hot city and we use different methods to deal with that problem. That was the only negative point but that is not a reason we wouldn't go back there. We also tried the alternative restaurant for lunch and food was average. Nothing special.
About the internet signal is very weak in a lot of parts of the hotel, but if you need it, you can go to the reception area. It wasn't a problem for us at all. But if you are thinking go on line and watching TV during your holidays, this is not the place to go.
We had a lovely time and for sure we'll spending some holidays there when children come into our life.
Oh! One more thing. I have not read any comment about the beds, but for me where a bit hard.

Thank you very much for visiting Crete and for coming to Candia Park. We hope you had a smooth trip home.
We are happy to read that you enjoyed your stay. The satisfaction of our guests is our highest aim, in which we are working day by day.
Insects/ flies in an open restaurant, as we have, especially in the hot summer months cannot always be avoided. We do fumigation in the whole hotel on a regular basis to minimize this issue, but sometimes the insects just come back from outside.
Concerning the beds we are sorry to here that you felt them too hard. In such cases we usually provide toppers in order to customize the beds for the personal requirements of each guest. If you come next time, just let our reception team know and we will be happy to help you.
For us, it would be a big pleasure to welcome you again and we hope to see you back soon!
With sunny regards from Crete,
Candia Park Village Hotelmanagement
