Just come back from this hotel. I've stayed in quite a few 5* Hotels in the past, this has been the best, why, because the staff are friendly, helpful, eager to please and go the extra mile when it comes to meeting your needs.
We moved to this hotel after a disastrous catalogue of events at another so called 5* Hotel, we are just glad that the first hotel was so bad, otherwise we would never have moved here!
Creta Maris Hotel is ideally situated on the beach, lovely seaviews, has ample outdoor area's with loungers, close by is the shopping area of Hersonissos (10minute walk), this hotel would suit anyone, as it has loads of room, quite a few pools for all ages and is disabled friendly.
The varied food menu was excellent and being a Coeliac(gluten free) I was looked after by the chef, who's exceptional catering made my holiday, most evenings having my meals or sweet done seperately!
The rooms had free safety deposit box, free soap's and gels for washing, air conditioning was quiet and worked fine, we had a twin bedded room, which had a comfortable mattress!! Believe me when you've come from a hotel where you feel like you're sleeping on the floor, that is a real plus point. The room was massive and had a settee and dressing table, two hairdryers and a massive shower, which was powerful and hot.
Would I go here again, YES, already looking for October or May 2014.
FOOD: VARIED AND EXCELLENT
LOCATION: BEACH, FAR END OF TOWN, SO QUITE EXCLUSIVE.
ROOMS: CLEAN, HUGE AND ALL MOD CONS.
STAFF: FRIENDLY, POLITE AND EAGER TO PLEASE.
MY RATING: A REAL 5*****
