Visited Crete for a one week August 2012. Pictures of the hotel is very promising, but the reality was really something else. Check in was a disaster. When traveling with three years old, flying hours from Finland and then waiting for a room another long hours was not a good way to start your waited holiday. I don't know if we ended up to select a week when all youngsters from UK, The Netherlands and some other countries travel to Chersonissos for a one week constant drinking party. There were a LOT (and I really mean it) people drunk night and day and for my eyes it looked that hotel staff didn't care that at all. With children people needed to get away from even the pools reserved for kids, becaude it just wasn't nice to look and hear drunken people getting ready (drunk) for a parties. Rooms were very noisy. Because of the parties at the other side of the street, music was very loud making children not to sleep. Fortunately we were in a block on the other end, I can't imagine what it would have been in closer ones. It's nice that hotel gives you free tickets to water park, tose became unused, because you just can't go there with kids when there is people behaving like that and no one is taking care of it. I don't feel it's safe when you can't be sure when some drunken youngster is sliding over you or your kids. No no.
We ate once in a hotel restaurant. Sorry to say, but the buffet food was terrible. My hint is not to spend your money there. There are small local restaurants close. They may not look very nice, but people are very friendly and food is much much better.
Hotel side pool was quite good, however we would like to spend more time in a park but... as I described already.
