“I got more than I expected from the hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Possibility of staying in this hotel didn't look very bright to me, as I only saw it as a family hotel with huge number of kids wandering around and no place for me to find something interesting. Though, as I have started experiencing the environment of the hotel, I have felt some relief due to the quality of service and beauty in every little detail. Moreover, as soon as I have made acquaintance with some of the staff, all my concerns perished. I would like to say a huge 'Thank you' and 'Hooray' to the team of animators, who not only helped me with looking after my little sister in a massive way, but have also made it easier for me to have magnificently enjoyable holidays.

We’ve travelled in Greece in June-July 2014 and this was the best hotel we experienced. Good value (luxury) for the price (except for the beach bar, way too expensive compared to other similar places), the beach is beautiful and very well equipped, breakfast buffet excellent even if it is not changing too much from one day to the other, rooms are spacious, quiet and very clean. We prefer the sea, but one must say that the swimming pool is great, very large and deep Even if it is not really spectacular, there are some restaurants and bars at walking distance, just in case. Driving to Rethimnon is very easy and quick and, truth be told, it is a beautiful city with many nice restaurants ; better than expected when looking at the other reviews.

Room Tip: Do not take no. 655, because of garbage trucks just behind the fence

We stayed at Creta Palace at the begining of July 2014 and we spent two wonderful weekds with my husband and our daughter Chiara.
The hotel is very confortable and has all the facilities you need to spend fantastic holidays.
We stayed in a "Bungalow room" which was very spacious and cleaned twice a day.
The decoration is nice even if the rooms are not brand new.
The staff is very nice and make you feel at home. We liked a lot to have lunch every day at the pool restaurant. The souvlaki sandwitch is to die for...
The children pool with two slides is just great for children (and parents..). The main pool is usually busy but there was always plenty of space at the marvelous sandy beach where you can do watersports and ceramic painting !
The hotel is 5-10 min by taxi from Rethymnon where we had various dinner and enjoyed many great restaurants.
The best part of our holidays was to see our daughter have such fun at the Grecoland ! The entertainment team is amazing. Children can make handcrafts, cooking class, games, parties, disco and even a real show on stage ! Our daughter wanted to go everyday to the mini-club ! Special THANKS to Georgia, Sofia, Anja and Katerina ! We miss you a lot !
We definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Bungalow rooms are great

We spent two weeks in Grecotel Creta Palace (2 adults and 2 kids) and everything was perfect. We started bad, as there was an error in communication between the travel agency in our country, the Greek travel operator and the hotel and thus, initially, we did not get the rooms which we booked. However, the hotel staff was more than helpful and supportive and we got the appropriate room immediately; together with flowers, wine and a wonderful cake! The service, during our whole stay, was excellent and it is not very often to see such friendly, professional and helpful staff.
While the hotel is not new it is very well kept, very clean and elegant. The room we had, with garden view, was an excellent choice, very good size for 4 people, very elegant and very clean.
Breakfast is amazing, with countless choices; the hotel provides a free of charge lunch corner for kids, with a good variety of foods - this is an amazing benefit for families with kids!
The beach is very large and very clean.
There are nice activities in the afternoon, nice activities for kids, in general.
City center is close and it is a nice place to go to; there are very good quality tavernas walking distance from the hotel.
There is nothing bad I could say about this hotel. We liked it very much, we were very happy there. There are for sure bigger, newer of trendier hotels in Crete; but I would choose again, with no doubt, Creta Palace! Services and staff are unbelievable! Congratulations to the hotel management!

Room Tip: Rooms with garden view are very very nice and cozy.
