The first honest review of the Cretan Gardens has been removed why? We were there at the same time and experienced similar things. Our original room was not what was advertised , poorly furnished no air con ( as was advertised as std ). So an upgrade was offered at a price... as previously mentioned the all inclusive is as described by a visiting rep " basic all inclusive " what the hell is basic all inclusive ? its either all inclusive or not. Regimental eating times , no bar snacks or ice cream for the kiddies unless you want to pay a euro a scoop. As for the drinks package for us grown ups the beer was like gnats pee the wine like paint stripper and the only the option was ouzo or cheap raki. The bar man was the most ignorant , miserable , scruffy , dirty looking bar person i have ever come across. A real ambassador for the hotel get my gist ...
Right now for the authentic greek food ( my backside) . The only authentic greek dish on offer was the tatziki , that said if you like pork you will be in pig heaven as the only dish that seemed to be served was pork caserole, pork steaks ,pork pie ... etc
Breakfast time was a joke with all the guests lining up behind the one and only two slice toaster. The orange juice on offer was watered down cordial but fresh orange could be purchased for an extra two euro,
The only shining gem in the whole place was little Eva who did her best for everyone and worked her lttle backside off , even behind the bar when the bone idle Tony wouldnt serve cause quote ( ive not had my cup of coffee yet or my fag ..)
The list could go on and on the hotel does not meet the advertised criteria.
Fortunately we have visited greece before and are putting this down to a one off bad experience ( not to be repeated ) as on the whole the Greek people are very welcoming and friendly as we found in all the surrounding bars , tavernas and shops.
So overall very dissapointed with the whole Cretan Garden experience as were a great many other couples there at the same time as us ( you know who you are ..)
